Having had a recent poor experience with another Pousada, I was somewhat in trepidation about the Sagres Pousada. My fears were totally unfounded, as this proved a real quality experience. The staff (all of them) are kind, helpful and smile. The Pousada has a feeling of the quality of Pousadas of old, and yes, although the rooms are a bit dated, the location, demeanour of the staff and above all, the wonderful view from front facing rooms really make it.
We pushed the boat out for a suite (very reasonably priced) and were really pleased at the touches (flowers in the room, a bottle of sparkling wine in the ice bucket, some hand made chocolates). The hotel is a 10 minute stroll down to an unspoiled beach, and on the other side, the harbour. The hotel has sizeable grounds, a tennis court and a decent sized swimming pool.
Dinner in the restaurant was of exceptional quality, with attentive smiling staff, and great food. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of fresh food, and unhurried even when we arrived just before official closing time.
This Pousada has held on to a bit of heritage and has not been drowned in the Americanised mediocrity which most chains impose. My faith has been restored!
