“A Charmed Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

From the friendly staff on reception to the cheery bar tender and smiling breakfast crew, this has to be one of the most easy going and effortless boutique hotels I have ever stayed in. Cool clean rooms in a modern design classic with outstanding views over the Sagres coastline make for a relaxing and charming retreat. You won't find a better base for exploring the the beaches and hinterland of Sagres and the Wild west coast of Portugal...Feels like a secret about to be discovered

Room Tip: Many of the bedrooms have the modern split double, effectively a twin bed, but plenty have real doub...

The Memmo Baleeira turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. For the (relatively) low daily rate, one gets excellent accommodation, a truly helpful staff, and one of the most beautiful views ever. The rooms are large, have cooking facilities, with balconies facing the Porto Baleeira. The hotel is located at walking distance from several restaurants, although its own restaurant is pretty fine. On the flip side, there's no in-room wifi Internet. But this is a minor sin: with a view like that, who needs to be online?

This is a bit of a find! For architecturally minded people, it's inspirational. The service was the only thing that slightly let it down, but not enough to spoil the experience. It's a cool and beautifully designed hotel. The rooms are comfortable and clean,the lounge/bar area is a great place to chill and there's a great pool area too with plenty of loungers. September was a good time to go as it wasn't busy and the location is great to get to lots of beaches. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A week in a 4* hotel with a great program of yoga, surfing and beautiful nature walks. After being back home for 1 week now, I still feel the great energy the week gave me.

The hosts Michael, Martha and Nicolau are a great team with real passion for surfing, yoga and nature.

Definitely recommended if you need some time to recharge and have fun.
And (in my opinion) that area is the most beautiful coastline of Europe.

This was my second time in Memmo. First time, 5 years ago, was an amazing experience. This time was no different, it's great to see a Hotel keeping the levels of quality over the years. Incredible location with a breathtaking view over the sea and modern, comfortable rooms. I would return for sure.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must to get the best experience

We visited Memmo with my girlfriend in october 2012.
The hotel is fully renovated from an old hotel. Very clean and perfectly located.
Not the cheapest in Sagres but worth the money.
Brekfast is nice , could be little more selection and some extra vegetables.
Lounge area is more than perfect, parking area is on site.
Good pick if you visit Sagres.

Only one remark to the management :
The beds are very soft, please provide some spare hard matraces for the guests do not like very soft beds.

Thank you Memmo

Room Tip: Go for the Memmo suite and book in advance to get some extra discounts !!

We visited Sages in October and it seemed we nearly had the town to ourselves - it would probably be a very different place in high season. The hotel was obviously an old hotel that had been tastefully refurbished - the room was small but fine for a short stay with views out over the stunning coastline. Restaurants within walking distance and a great bar area for sunset drinks.
