“Nice but a bit lacking in atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We stayed here for the 1st time on what was our 5th trip to Sagres. The hotel is situated in a small road off the square at the top of the high street , and can be quite tricky to find. Also parking can be an issue if the resort is busy , which it was when we were there. We had booked a double sea view room and although the view was indeed very nice we were a bit disappointed with the size of the room which was a bit on the small side and slightly claustrophobic , the bathroom was not designed with two people in mind. There was a lack of storage space and we had to ask the reception for some extra hangers in order to get all our clothes in. The place was kept immaculately clean by houskeeping , but could we please have a bin the the main room instead of the tiny one in the bathroom.
Breakfast was simple but plentiful , however it did get a bit monotonous towards the end of the week .
Be warned we were bitten to bits by mozzies as we like to sleep with the balcony doors open so as to listen to the waves at night , a citronella candle from the local intermarche helped , this seems to be a recurring problem in Sagres as the same thing happenened to us on a previous trip.
Mareta Beach is a short walk down the hill and was as beautiful and uncrowded as normal , Tonel beach is also within easy walking distance.

Overall a nice hotel but rooms are a bit small and the whole place lacks atmoshere.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to be different sizes so make sure you specify a large double..

I stayed in the Mareta view hotel for two nights. My room looked out over the square in Sagres. Very bright and great shower facilities. The staff are very friendly and helpful with good english. Breakfast was included in the price and was simple but fresh, fruit, bread, cheese, salami and tea. Very convenient location for everything in Sagres.

Room Tip: Try to get a sea room

Other than some noisy guests who don't appreciate the echo in the stair/hallways, our stay here was very enjoyable. We didn't have a sea view, but we weren't in our rooms much anyway and there was no noise from the street at night. Breakfast was a real treat, eaten outside on the terrace. My only complaint was that staff seemed reluctant to set up the outside tables for breakfast, leaving people to take cutlery and place mats from the inside tables. Relaxing garden and nice jacuzzi.

We stayed for one night. The hotel is a great place, the view from the bedroom was stunning. The staff was helpful and nice.
The Mareta View is a real surprise hidden from the rest of the world, a magnificent piece of tranquility !

As to the positive: the staff was very friendly, breakfast was good, sea view from the balcony was the best we had.

As to the negative: the bathroom of our first room was covered with mould in the joints between the tiles and smelled pretty bad. Upon complaint we were directily given another room. It was better, but the bathroom had a strange smell to it, too. Especially when the bathroom door was closed over night. There were also ants going up and down the sink into the wall where the pipes come out. Probably because the wood to the upper left of the sink already started to swell.

Also a four star inn requires a blowdryer and a safe in the rooms. But that matters less compared to the bathroom problems.

Considering that we payed for a three nights stay at the Vila Gale Hotel Lagos as well as at Hotel EVA in Faro (both 4 star hotels) only half of what we payed for our three nights stay at Mareta View, I would not decide to return to Mareta View.

We picked this place at random and were not disappointed. We even had the smallest room in the whole hotel and we didn't care. The bathroom was lovely, clean and modern. The bed was great, there was very little noise from the street.

The included breakfast was wonderful, lots to choose from and seating both inside and out. There is a bar in the lobby as well as free internet with computer to use if you need. Free wifi of course. Great outside lounge seating with a great view of the water. The staff were helpful and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We had the smallest room and it was still just fine for two people for a couple nights.

We spent two nights in Sagres at the Mareta View. Lovely location, spectacular view from second floor room, very clean, nice breakfast. Easy walk down to the beach or to the Fortress. Staff was not very available, nor did they go out of their way to be helpful when they were, but this would not prevent us from staying there again. Our stay in Sagres was unforgettable!

Room Tip: A room with a view is definitely worth it!
