We (me, my sister and parents) stayed in Sagres Time Apartments for 4 nights in June. Upon arrival we received a complementary upgrade from a one-bedroom apartment to a two bedroom apartment. The whole apartment was very modern and spacious. The kitchen was very well-equipped, there were large living and dining areas. The master bedroom had a large ensuite bathroom and its own patio/garden area. The second bedroom and bathroom were also large. There were TVs in the living area and both bedrooms. The living area also had doors leading to a patio area and the communal gardens/pool. If requested, the apartment was cleaned everyday and fresh towels were provided. Beach towels were also available from reception.
The reception was open 24h and staff were friendly and helpful in terms of recommending local restaurants, activities and attractions. We also made use of the bikes available to hire from the hotel. On our last day we asked what we should do with any leftover food in the cupboards/fridge and were told by staff to leave it as they would donate it to a nearby church!
Sagres itself was a lovely quiet little village with great beaches, local sights (fortress and Cabo st vincent), and a number of restaurants and bars. However, beware that it is very windy and so can feel cold in the shade or at night. This didn't bother me much as the temperature itself was hot however my parents did complain at times. The nearest well-stocked supermarket is a 5-10 minute walk as is the town centre.
If you are planning on visiting some of the other towns in the Algarve, I would recommend hiring a car. We hired a car from Faro airport and found driving to be straightforward as the whole of the Algarve is served by the A22 motorway (toll road) and N125. There was plenty of free on-road parking available at the apartments.
Overall, I highly recommend Sagres Time Apartments to anyone seeking self-catering accommodation for a relaxing holiday in the Algarve.
