Rain for most of early part of the week excluded use of the pool but it looked good, only marred by leaves and debris from nearby trees. Groundsman/pool guy worked every day regardless of weather keeping all areas neat and tidy. Pool pump not used for most of week (? fault) so build up of debris made the pool uninviting. However.... Mozzies! Probably due to surrounding trees, grass and field with goats and chickens next door. Several nearby supermarkets including Aldi. Purchased a plug-in mozzie killer and no further problems within the apartment. Kitchen reasonably equipped with good size fridge and microwave, however NO OVEN! No pizzas or grill facility! Plenty of hot water at all times of the day. Went to visit several restaurants listed in local guides and recommended by friends, but found most were closed! Maybe out of season (visited early April). Apartment recommended for a fairly quiet stay with spectacular views to the north from well kept mature gardens.
Facilities were good. We played tennis, swam in the indoor and outdoor pool. Plenty of fitness classes available for extra charge. Staff very friendly and helpful. Accommodation a bit basic and a bit tired. We had 2 bedroom villa for 5 people. Beds were comfortable except for the pull out bed in lounge area. We had to rotate people for that as it was neither comfortable nor big enough for an adult. Really need a car for restaurants and bars at marina - which are excellent. Nearby Albufeira also much nicer than expected.
A very successful affordable late booking - good location for beaches & bars /restaurants if you are prepared to walk about 15 minutes each way. Very warm sunny weather also helped! Basics for self catering available but large supermarket nearby. Free minibus to main town was convenient but pleasant walk is an option but takes about 40 minutes. Transfer from Faro airport takes about 80 minutes.
"Beautiful and relaxing location. Lovely holiday."
The location is quiet and scenic. Perfect for a nice relaxing get away. Beach is not far away and travelling either by train or walking is easy and enjoyable. Staff are friendly and helpful. I had a great week in mid Sept - weather was great.
Spent 2 nights here, the rooms are small but decent, not a true 4* by any means (even for Europe) but Sagres is tiny, so this was probably one of the best hotels in the area. Breakfast was good and the staff were very nice, giving plenty of valuable advise for restaurants and beaches (btw, Beliche is the possibly the most beautiful beach in the World!).
