The hotel is perched out on a bluff opposite the Sagres fortress bluff, with an expansive sheltered beach below. In the distance to the west one can see the Saint Vincent bluff, the farthermost point to the west on the European continent ... a great setting for sunsets. The hotel is more costly than most pousadas, but lacks any historical pedigree. It is a somewhat dated modern structure, luxurious, but without much distinctive character. The amenities include an outdoor pool, and the usual fine restaurant.
