Lovely modern hotel with fabulous ocean views. Rooms were very comfortable with good towels, linen etc. Staff were very courteous (despite the receptionist on our arrival giving us just one key card for our room and WARNING us not to lose it). Staff were very presentable with lovely uniforms and plenty hand sanitizers around. Breakfast was excellent and also dinner, with special mention to waiting staff who were so attentive and pleasant. Lovely informative booklet with great suggestions for things to do/places to go/eat - very well put together, nice touch. Would definitely recommend and will return 🤞
We stayed at the Memmo Baleeira hotel in Sagres between August 4th and 11th. All in all the impression about the hotel is positive: good breakfast as well as very attentive and friendly restaurant team, clean rooms and cosy territory. There is one incident (on August 16th at around 13:30) which influenced our impression about the hotel very negatively. One of the activities the hotel mentions on their web site and during the check-in is a surfing class at the Free Ride school (which is situated right at the hotel territory, 20 meters from the hotel entrance). We took one class during our stay at the Memmo Baleeira hotel and the second one a couple of days after our check-out from there, when we had already moved to another city in Algarve. After the second class we were transferred back to the Memmo Baleeira hotel and we wanted to visit a WC at the hotel after a 4-hour training. At the reception we kindly asked if this could be possible and also mentioned that we had attended the surfing class. The lady on the reception appraisingly looked at us for a couple of seconds and arrogantly said "No" without any further explanations. Honestly, we were shocked, so we tried to ask why and mentioned that we used to stay at the Memmo Baleeira hotel a couple of days ago, but she just shook her head and then sent us to look for a WC somewhere else. The hotel positions itself as a place for well-being and relaxation. Do basic needs like WC usage for the surfing school attendees seem to be excessive? Current Corona rules which the hotel employees might have mentioned as an argument to not let us use the WC (although they didn’t) are not valid neither - other people can visit the hotel restaurant during weekdays (it was Monday) without any Corona tests and can use the WC. We were not random people from the street, we attended the surfing class which is offered at the hotel and which is associated with the hotel. The hotel and its logo are mentioned in the Free Ride surfing school as well. I am afraid it’s all about attitude which turned out to be artificial. It is really sad that the hotel staff is able to stay friendly and empathetic only while you are paying for the stay. Small things matter and this incident really worsened our impression about the hotel a lot.…
From the moment you enter the gates you know it will be a wonderful experience. The grounds are well maintained and the views whatever the weather are stunning! Reception was a cool, inviting space and the welcome genuine. Our room was beautiful styled with quality furnishings and linen, the balcony although small, had space for two chairs so you can sit, watch the sea and relax. Breakfast was well organized with great choice and variety and the staff attentive and efficient. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, you must put it on your to do list.
We enjoyed this hotel in Sagres and highly recommend for those looking to visit the area, offers good value for money and plenty of activities around the area -Front desk staff were very helpful with recommendations, booking us dinner outside the hotel and helping with printing travel documents -Rooms had a nice view onto the bay and the ocean, very bright and sufficient space -Free parking right next to the hotel -Breakfast - nice selection of buffet options, good coffee -Surfing school a few steps away from the hotel lobby -We didn’t have dinner in the hotel as plenty of high quality seafood restauarants around Sagres
This is a fancy 4-star hotel close to the harbor. Rooms are nice. Pool is very warm even if it gets cold outside due the winds. Breakfast selection is properly. Did not try dinner, but the menu reads nice. However, they seem to not vary the selection too much.
