Pousada Sagres
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Sagres
Reviewed April 2, 2014

If you find yourself at the end of Europe, you really should stay at the Pousada de Sagres. This is not a historical building (it dates from the 1960s), but the rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean. The staff was amazingly polite and helpful. We had one dinner in the restaurant, and it was exquisite, with a delicious wine.

But this Pousada is about location, location, location. The breathtaking beauty is enough, but to look out your window and gaze across the Atlantic, at the same place where Prince Henry set out to explore the oceans and open up global navigation to Europe, gives you a deep sense of history and awe.

If you go, take the right gear for wind--you are on a promontory that juts out into the sea--and walk the 4km to the lighthouse. Go down to the pebbled beaches. Touch the Atlantic Ocean and dream of Africa, Brazil, Goa, Macao. Then go back to the Pousada bar, and let the gracious staff take care of you!

Room Tip: We asked for an ocean view, but I think you can see water from both sides of the building.

We just can't imagine not to return! We come every year in march to Sagres for some days and the Pousada is our must! The views from the rooms and the restaurant alone would justify to stay there, friendly staff and nice drawing-rooms do the rest! Until 2015!

Room Tip: Rooms with views to the "Fortaleza" are a must!

This is a beautiful hotel in a peaceful and picturesque location. The staff are attentive, efficient and friendly. It is tremendous value for money in the "Low Season". The rooms are perhaps a little dated but certainly better than adequate. The public rooms are spectacular. Breakfast is very good - typical Pousada standard - although it would have been nice to have some variety (we stayed for 8 nights and the buffet was basically the same every day). The restaurant was OK, especially the fixed menu that is good value. However, why eat in the hotel when there are so many other choices in Sagres, just a short walk away!?

I traveled to the Algarve for the sole purpose of exploring possible options for my family's summer vacation. I used a local travel agency to suggest more traditional Portuguese accommodations. They recommended the Pousada as a great location for experiencing more traditional Portugal.

I arrived late in the evening on a cooler November night. The hotel was not very busy at this time. In many respects, it almost felt like I had the hotel to myself. The front desk staff were exceptional. I speak a little Portuguese and they were more than willing to allow me to practice my feeble language skills.

The restaurant located within the hotel was very traditional. It was exactly what I hoped it would be. I had calamari as an appetizer and a wonderful local fish dish.

Following dinner, I relaxed in the common area. Unlike many hotels that have a very small reception area, this hotel featured an expansive series of rooms each of which containing a television, couches, and various comfortable chairs to relax in.

The only drawback was that for some the rooms would seem a little small and dated. However, for me this was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want to stay in a brand-new touristy modernized hotel.

Although it would probably not be the best location for a family vacation, as the facilities are not really designed for children, it would be perfect for anyone seeking an authentic Portuguese experience with their spouse.

The only other comment I would make is that the beaches on the west coast of Portugal are amazing and do not have near the crowds that you would see along the more touristy areas of the Algarve. It can get a little windy, however I come from probably one of the more windier areas of Canada and it was almost like being home again.

Nice and clean hotel with good sized rooms but the real highlight is the view of the harbor and fort in Sagres. Nice pool and lounge/reading space with a friendly bartender. Good breakfast, with outdoor seating in the warm weather. The Staff is very friendly and there is easy parking. The restaurant is ok but there's better value nearby. Can be a little tricky to find by GPS. Good starting place for coastal cliff walks as well.

We stayed in Segres at the start of our 2 week trip to Portugal. We first stayed at an aparthotel but had our eye on the Pousada the first time we saw it from the beach. It was more expensive, but well worth the treat. Breakfasts are amazing with fresh fruit, hot and cold buffet. fresh juice, wonderful coffee and baked goods. They also served sparkling wine to mix with the fresh orange juice, which was a treat. We used the pool, which was adequately warm for us canadians, and the tennis court. Lovely walk on along the top of the cliffs and to the marina. Convenient location close to lots of restaurants. Would highly recommend it, as well as all the pousadas.

Room Tip: We had the end/corner room with a 180 degree view of the ocean which was awesome.

We stayed here for a few days as a last stop when we traveled for a few weeks in Portugal. We wished we had spent our entire stay here. This hotel is perfect for families with children and especially for surfing families with children who need the comfort and amenities of a hotel and the location near some of the world's most incredible beaches. Check out Praia do Amado for daily surfing and relaxing for all and Martinhal for lunch as well.

The vistas are incredible. There is a lovely pool and wonderful restaurants in Sagres that have incredible food untainted by the tourist traps you'll find in places like Lagos and Albufeira which have turned completely away from traditional fresh simple Portuguese food to more German and British influences. I'm Portuguese and grew up on the Albufeira coast when there were farms and almost no hotels and very little development. Sagres still maintains a lot of the simple beauty and a quick drive will take you to beautiful beaches if you ask the locals. Stick to the smaller family owned restaurants to truly appreciate the beauty of the people and cuisine.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spectacular. Ask for one with an ocean view of course - you are at the edge of the...
