“Hotel Review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Upon arriving the gal at the desk ______ Lopes (female) - (sorry I don't remember her name) was very pleasant & also made a great suggestion for us for dinner that night. She also was very knowledgable about the Algarve area & spoke english very well.

The restaurant was Carlos Restaurant - amazing food/service, etc.

The hotel was very clean, the breakfast was delicious & had several options from different breads, fresh juices, eggs, meats, cheeses, champagne & fruit.

We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel other than for breakfast & sleeping. Overall, this hotel was very comfortable but I think a bit pricey however, it is probably one of the best hotels in the area if you want to spend it in Sagres. We were taking the days & traveling to other parts of the Algarve, although it was a nice place to stay it was a little out of the way as we drove back & forth to different areas.

If you are wanting a place to stay for a few days, relax & just do nothing it is a great place to hang out.

My first experience with the Portugal flag hotel chain was fantastic! It reminded me of a cruise ship experience, from the food presentation in the restaurant (changes of silverware in mid-dining, several appetizers to taste, and wonderful entrees) to little things, like a daily news brief printout focusing on your home country news of the day. The views from the hotel are incredible, and there is a neighboring beach if you tire of the huge pool on the property. My wife and I rented bikes right from the hotel and rode 7 kilometers to the historic lighthouse that sits at the crossroads of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea (Straights of Gilbralter) - a great way to see Cape Sagres! The service at the hotel is top notch, and everyone works hard to make your stay exceptional!

Room Tip: Book a room that faces the ocean (live a little!).

We had only one night but being at this posada offered immense relaxation and comfort. Highly recommended.The view of the fort and beach was magical. Nice to have such a spacious private patio. We spent time relaxing in the lounge, as the weather was a bit chilly. Loved the music. A bountiful breakfast was served.

Having had a recent poor experience with another Pousada, I was somewhat in trepidation about the Sagres Pousada. My fears were totally unfounded, as this proved a real quality experience. The staff (all of them) are kind, helpful and smile. The Pousada has a feeling of the quality of Pousadas of old, and yes, although the rooms are a bit dated, the location, demeanour of the staff and above all, the wonderful view from front facing rooms really make it.
We pushed the boat out for a suite (very reasonably priced) and were really pleased at the touches (flowers in the room, a bottle of sparkling wine in the ice bucket, some hand made chocolates). The hotel is a 10 minute stroll down to an unspoiled beach, and on the other side, the harbour. The hotel has sizeable grounds, a tennis court and a decent sized swimming pool.
Dinner in the restaurant was of exceptional quality, with attentive smiling staff, and great food. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of fresh food, and unhurried even when we arrived just before official closing time.
This Pousada has held on to a bit of heritage and has not been drowned in the Americanised mediocrity which most chains impose. My faith has been restored!

Room Tip: Sea facing

We stayed here two nights in one of their suites. Comfortable room, although not luxurious. The place could use a little renovation, but with the proximity of the ocean, maintenance becomes difficult. The views are totally amazing. You have wide views of the Atlantic ocean, and you can also see Cabo St Vicente and the Fortaleza de Sagres, both worth a visit.

The Pousada is not in a classic historical building like most but is in a style that might be a little dated. The restaurant has beautiful portuguese azulejo tiles though.
The rooms are nicely decorated in a modern fashion, fairly large and usually come with balconies.
Great place for visiting the surrounding area, such as the fortaleza de sagres, cabo sao vicente and driving up the west coast. Quite a few beaches within short driving distance.
Breakfast buffet is delicious and offers a wide range of choices.

We arrived a day earlier the our reservations,(because of a flight problem). We were welcomed with no hassles. Our room was on the first floor and we had an incredable view of the ocean. Our room was comfortable and clean. We stayed for five nights, and had the included breakfast each morning, it was ok. The staff was great. We did some day trips while in Sagres otherwise one would have difficulty finding things to do just in Sagres.
