“Stunning location, comfortable rooms, terrific service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We spent three nights here and would recommend it. The week we arrived the sun came out and the coast was in fragrant bloom with wildflowers of every description. On arrival we had a problem with our room which was handled efficiently and with good humour by David at reception. The hotel offers a high level of service without any pretensions. breakfasts and dinners superb, again with friendly and thoughtful service. For example, after a request the first morning, Silvia remembered we preferred plain yoghurt and made sure to bring it out for us each morning without us having to ask.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

its an outstanding place if you love comfort and-unpretending and efficent service combined with
sunrise or sunset experiences directly from your bed or your balcony

the food is excellent not only the breakfast try their dinner too they make it romantic

we got this pousada recommended booked first for 3 nights but ended up 7 nights as they give you discounts long stay and golden age +55

its the place for a romantic stay combined with historic and natural wonders

the fireplace in the lounge is worth for a evening stay and a glas of their excellent wines

we were there in the end of november and had a fantastic time

Room Tip: try a superior room on the top floor

We spent one night here. We had a lovely time. Like almost everything in Portugal, the room interior was a bit outdated, but very clean. The view from the balcony was stunning, overlooking fortaleza Sagres. The breakfast was great, they even served champagne.

On the whole, worth paying a visit.

Yes, the location is spectacular. But on a rather damp March evening, with the hotel "at 50% occupancy" (I don't know where they all were) it was rather cold and unwelcoming. Fire not lit. Lights out behind the bar. Surprised to find the hotel receptionist spoke no English. "Any chance of a drink?", I said, having struggled to find anyone who would serve me. A rather feckless smile came back. Nobody appeared. We went out. Dinner was an odd affair. The dining room is uplit with florescent lighting - it was a bit like having a meal in a Turkish bathroom. Perhaps in the height of summer when, I guess, the place is full, it might have been a different experience. But if you are going to open a place all year around you need to staff it accordingly and make the effort to make it inviting.

If you enjoy staying in historical places, this will be right up your alley. The hotel is situated on top of the hill overlooking the bay. The view across the bay to the old fort is wonderful thing to wake up to in the morning. When we stayed there we were one of two couples staying in the whole hotel, so we had the complete place to ourselves. The hotel offered a plentiful breakfast. The only issue was the lack of wifi/internet service in the rooms and the halls/rooms were cold. They have not changed the room decor much from when it was a convent but it is charming. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Book in the off season

Our visit was in January 2013 and we were lucky enough to be the only residents in the hotel for our one nights stay. The location is fabulous being at the furthermost tip of Europe with spectacular views of the cliffs and beaches of Sagres. The room was clean and comfortable and so quiet we had a really relaxing nights sleep. We had a superb dinner which we really could have shared because the portions were so large. At breakfast, the buffet was brought to our table and we had the choice of everything; fruit, every type of bread you could imagine, cakes, cooked meats, cheese, cereals and then were offered something cooked. It was quite an event eating in the large dining room by ourselves and we stayed a little while to make the most of it. The staff couldn't have been more helpfull and, it was definitely worth the journey to get there. During our stay we visited the attractions of the area and all in all, had a great time.

Following a lovely stay here in Spring 2012, we were delighted to be coming back to this beautiful, welcoming and spectacularly located Pousada. Again, our welcome was first class, with the friendly and efficient Reception and Restaurant staff doing their utmost to make you feel at home in the wonderful surroundings.

You could pay much, much more, and never get a view like this. Set on a promontory a couple of hundred yards or so from the little village of Sagres, this must be one of the world's greatest views. The end of the world as it was once known is so spectacular, and best viewed from your sea view bedroom in this lovely hotel.

The rooms are surprisingly light and modern, but spotlessly clean, and beautifully maintained by courteous and smiling housekeepers. Our suite was wonderful, but any of the rooms as long as they face the sea are just great. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are charming, friendly and always smiling. They take a pride in this lovely hotel, and it shows.

There are few nicer things to do in an evening than watch the spectacular sunsets over to the west, sipping cocktails with the sea rolling in before you. And even in bad weather, it is just as spectacular. The lounges are calm, comfortable and airy - just perfect to relax.

Breakfast is reliable, with a wide range of cold and some hot dishes. It is here you soon realise you are not the only returnees here - the pousada has, and deserves an ever growing band of regular clients. We are happy to join them, and will be back as soon as possible.

Thank you to all the staff at the Pousada Infante de Sagres. Keep our room safe for us - we will be back. Just the most lovely place to stay in Portugal.
