After having stayed in the luxurious Pousada at Porto the week before, we were looking forward to our stay at Sagres.
All Portuguese pousadas are run by the Pestana Group which is very professional and owns/runs some of the very best spots (pousadas, hôtels, resorts...) in the country and some abroad.
Our expectations were therefore high.
During our stay, the weather was lousy (cloudy sky and mist on land and see) which is not Pestana's fault of course, but the main thing for which we went there, the view over Sagres cape, was dull.
The pousada itself could have compensated but it didn't.
Upon arrival, the very sweet young trainee told us that the room wasn't ready and offered us two vouchers for a drink at the bar.
The trainee also gave us a small scale local map with interesting information regarding nice walks to be done around the cliffs. We took some of those paths and believe they must be very nice with sunshine.
As far as the building is concerned, the older part of the pousada needs a serious refurbishing as several areas look tired.
I agree with the comentator hereafter stating that the hotel smels. A building sitting by the seaside needs a lot of airing to get rid of the sea humidity.
We had dinner at the hotel. It was ok. Service was friendly but not really professional with trainees serving.
The location is a guarantee for quietness. He had it during the night.
Breakfast was quite good.
