Pontalaia Apartamentos Turisticos
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Sagres
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2007

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was inside our room at pontalaia, especially for what we paid - 95 euro or something. The place was spotless, really nice. And it was huge. Nice couch, dining room table with four chairs, nice kitchen (nicer than at my house), huge bathroom (although the stylish lack of shower curtain meant a sure wet floor ... however, the heater in the bathroom was great), cool photos of Sagres sights on the walls. We felt we got a bargain for this place.

The beds were a little stiff but that seems to be the norm in portugal. Extra pillows were in the closet, along with bathrobes. Nice shampoos and stuff, according to my wife.

Parking was easy, lots of free parking. Location was great - right next to the pousadas which was much more expensive (although the view there seemed to be better, it's an older place I think)

We had booked a sea view room and although we could see the sea, it wasn't really like we were overlooking a cliff or anything (more of a pool view). But the town and surrounding area is so spectacular that you would be on overload anyway with a view 24/7.

We only stayed one night but could have stayed much longer. We're already talking about going back once I learn how to surf. The town is very small and a bit sleepy, but perfect for a relaxing getaway after we spent time in the more touristy section of the algarve (praia da roche). It's very windy in this town, which makes it less of a beach destination than some other areas of the algarve. That was fine with us! If only I could surf, we'd be in heaven.

Make sure you drive out to the tip of the lighthouse, and spend time exploring the cliffs along the way (Carefully!). Spectacular views!

The restaurant at the hotel was really great, was a perfect meal for our 1st wedding anniversary! It was the fanciest restaurant we ate at our whole trip. And I believe it was the nicest in town. (Just make sure you tell them you're staying at the hotel b/c I think you get a discount... we didn't know that and missed out!)

The only bad part was that we had to book through email (I hate sending my credit card info via email). Would have been nice to have secure booking online through their website or through a third party.

We ended up in Sagres by accident and fell in love with it, locating these great apartments on day 2. The people who run them are brilliant (with excellent English) and the situation puts you within walking distance of 3 magnificent beaches.

Sagres is a very quiet town, which is what we like. The partment we has was superbly equipped and well cared-for.
