“Nice.......but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We stayed for the second time at this complex in October. On our previous visit we were shown a specific apartment with a view to staying there on this visit . We requested this apartment via email prior to our visit but were told this was not available which was a disappointment. Our apartment had a nice sunny aspect with both balconies catching either the morning or afternoon sun. Unfortunately it was right above the underground car park entrance and the noisy gates were intrusive at times.
The real problem came when a large booking of locals took over the complex at the weekend , noisy ill behaved children running about whilst the adults sat around drinking we returned to the apartment Friday evening to find about 50 people below our balcony having a party , having emptied all their apartments of furniture poolside. The noise was so horrendous we had to close and shutter all the windows in order to sleep. Whilst i realise the Hotel cannot turn away bookings of this size it none the less spoiled our stay.

The other problem were the insects which were rife on this visit . My self and my wife were bitten over 100 times between us . We eventually sourced a citronella candle at the local Intermarche called Z-Top which held them at bay a bit.

The weather during our stay was really good , high 70's little wind and apart from a couple of hours on two mornings was lovely sunshine.

Sagres was more busy than on previous visits but not so as to be a problem. We spent most days on Mareta beach which was as empty as it ever was.

Most nights we ate at the Vila Velha , easily the best restaraunt in town by some way ( we've eaten at most of them). A bit pricey , but nice food.

We would probably go back to this complex as the staff are most acommodating , the apartments well equipped and its very good value for money , we were just unlucky on this trip that we had to endure the noisy ill behaved party who were there at the same time.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the balcony away from poolside , it's quieter.

We stay at Aparthotel Sagres Time from 11th October to 17th October.... The time we had here was great...the Apartment is year old but had that very new feel about it.... Very clean and well equipped and when we didnt have something in the apartment we just ask at reception and was provided with what we needed... The staff were superb and very friendly...allowing my girlfriend to practise her Portuguese on them... Manual the Manager was always on hand to help with anything we needed..... We have travel a lot but staying here was one of the best holidays we had....Sagres is very quiet and relaxing....and took about 1hr and half from faro airport by car....but it well worth it.... Because enjoyable time here.... We be back soon!

We stayed for just over a week at the Aparthotel at the beginning of October and loved it. We had a one bed apartment which was immaculate. The quality of finish was really good and very comfortable. The grounds and swimming pool are really well maintained and its only a very short walk from some amazing beaches. The staff were super helpful and all in all we could not fault it. There are some very lovely places nearby so a car would be handy for a trip to the fort and nearby fishing villages. Great if you are after a quiet relaxing break, with lots of time at the beach or exploring the costa vincentina national park.

Room Tip: Its a great place, so you would enjoy any one of these wonderful apartments.

Very clean and well kept. The town is only 5-8 minute walk from the hotel, so I am not sure why people were disappointed in location. The kitchen is well equipped if you don't want to go out to eat. I would definitely stay at this hotel in the future. My only complaint is that the bed was very uncomfortable. Didn't see that complaint on any other reviews so it may have been our specific apartment. Otherwise, it was a great stay and I would recommend this hotel.

The apartments are great, we had one on the top level, which was very spacious indeed, and also benefitted from two balconies, good quality air conditioning, and fully fitted kitchen. Sagres is a lovely, quiet little resort, with the apartments located 5 mins walk away from the nearest bars, supermarket and restaurants. There is a choice of four beaches to spend the day at - the pool at the apartments is small & shallow, making it perfect for families with young children.

We, as a family of father, mother and a one year old boy, liked the stay in this place very much. It's clean, new, has lots of stuff inside the apartment and the place attracts nice an decent people. The staff is friendly and helpful. I can surely recommend it. We stayed here 10 days in the beginning of September. The weather is very pleasant, around 25 degrees Celcius with a nice cool wind from the sea. Perfect !

We stayed at the Aparthotel Sagres last June and were very impressed. Brand new, comfortable and stylish facilities. The kitchen of the flat was very well equipped and every part of the apartment was spotless. Although Sagres is very windy, the swimming pool and common area is in the central courtyard so well protected. The location does require a car to get into town or to the beach, but the quiet atmosphere makes it worth it.
