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.
Very nice hotel with very friendly staff right in the middle of everything u need. Can get a bit of noise late at nights due to vacinity but all in all a worth while holiday choice of hotel and location..
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.
First class villa with own pool (nice to have for privacy and peaceful sunbathing). Breakfast buffet good. Staff all pleasant and helpful. Had a problem with one shower not draining, maintenance staff worked hard to try to fix (albeit unsuccessfully). Lovely beaches relatively close by, but you need a car to appreciate I think. Hired one via expedia in advance (Firefly, at Faro airport, which was fine).
Mostly suitable for family with smallish kids.
Most enjoyable stay,great helpful staff, lovely weather,great position would recommend.husband very hard to please and he said he would go back so thats a bonus.Not far from beach and restaurants and plenty to choose from.
We stayed for a week in June for a last-minute trip away with our 15-month old. The pictures do not do the place justice, it is much nicer in reality. Easy check-in, very pleased with the apartment (which is one bed, not two as the website says, however couch in lounge becomes another bed if needed). Our toddler son slept in our room in a travel cot which was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. Gardens and pool are very clean and well maintained.
The restaurant and bar was closed as we were too early in the season but that didn't bother us - we either cooked in or ate out at local restaurants. There is a cafe on site which sells burgers, pizzas etc (good pizzas) and bottles of water and fresh bread every morning, but for anything more the local supermarket has everything.
We had a great stay and have already recommended to friends with babies who want a complete get away and relaxing chill out. SIte is quiet and relaxed - no entertainment, which is how we like it!
I had 5 days there out of season to explore the Ria Formosa coast and a further trip up into the Algarve Hills around Barranco do Velho, which was easily accessed via Tavira and Sao Bras d' Alpotil. The N125 runs right along the coast, and Pedras is just off this. From here i got to Castro Marim, Quinta Marim and Olhao easily inside around 35 minutes, but travelling early in the morning. Parking is usually available outside the apartments, but it's a big site, and lost some time driving about trying to work out the block/apartment numbering system, which i assume has evolved as the place has grown.
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!).
