Location is great, the room was spacious. A visit to the forteza in Sagres is worthwhile. The food in the restaurant is not recommendable.
Staff is minimal
Geographic situation is fabulous Difficult to communicate in english...
nice big baths, could have done with a few little things fixed in the room and the fires on in the main rooms in the evening
We enjoyed the view, comfort and peacefulness of the facility. The breakfast was wonderful, too. Our screen door would not stay on the track, but we were glad to have a screen door so we could leave it open at night.
The sea view, excellent car park, internet access (although only in one room) It was not a matter of disliking the hotel - it was more a sense of disappointment about the very dated rooms, the lack of facilities for children ( a few plastic toys scattered in the garden next to a large rusting anchor), the fact that any cooked items for breakfast were an extra charge, the plastic flowers in the room, no kettle in the room, poor choice of TV channels and poor TV reception.
Beautiful location and property. Comfortable and cozy. Modrn comforts with the feel of being away from it all. All good.
Great historical location with fabulous views of ocean
Fantastic location, luxury rooms High prices for dinner and minibar
The cleanliness of the room.
relaxing and comfortable in an excellent position for beaches restaurants and shops all within walking distance would recommend to family and friends.
It's expensive, the hotel don't have enought resources to be a right choice. I will not return never if there another solution.
The staff were polite and friendly. The rooms were clean and the pool was nice. As for the location it was close to the town and beech. Overall a good place to stay.
The B&B is conveniently located just a 10 min walk outside Luz. Nice relaxed atmosphere, clean large rooms with balcony. Good breakfast. And the even have a pretty decent swimming pool.
Room at back of hotel was quite and did not have road noise Price perhaps in recession times
What a wonderful little place to stay, Ideal for couples only ,( there were No children there when we stayed last week in August) Peaceful, Friendly, nothing to much trouble, small bar downstairs in kitchen/ breakfast area, very strange layout but acceptable, Large Fridge in Bathroom was fantastic, everywhere very clean and 10 mins easy walk out of the town, up a slight hill on return, good selection bars ,restaurants, in Luz, quiet location although some rooms may be on roadside with some traffic noise, wonderful pool area, nice size rooms all balcony or terrace, only some with air con, safe parking for motorbikes, good local bus service, to Espiche, Burgau and Lagos, bus stops close by. Bathroom Towels could be bigger, No shampoo etc..and proper pool towels need to be provided. Will find you a towel if requested but not good.Only on arrival do you find that Espiche, (it has a very nice English run restaurant) and Burgau, 2 lovely villages are further than you think, if wanting to visit them The taxi has to be booked and come from Lagos. If you want to visit these villages, use the good bus service, or you can walk into Luz for a taxi. Just thought this comment useful.
This place is excellent, we felt almost as being at home! Everywhere clean and well maintained, the pool area is really nice and the service excellent. If you don't have a car it might be tricky to stay here as it's located between Lagos and Sagres.
Location with respect to the beach, price, facilities, and the full breakfast
Lack of info pack in room. Lack of tea/coffee making facilities in room.
The standard fo the breakfast was poor.
The garden and the pool and the proximity to the beach Yes, they give us one room close to the air conditioner machines and one of them wasn't working fine, making a lot of noise. We called the reception that told us that they already knew that but they still gave us that room.
Not enough warmth and not enough hot water
Very clean and modern, beds were excellent and very comfortable. Room heater not quite warm enough, found controls a bit awkward.
thta you have to pay for the pool towels
clean and tidy ,great staff, in particular the female receptionist Felipiana ? good food and a very good location, we would go again no
everything nwas very pleasant yes. The coffee at breakfast was terrible. undrinkable
Lovely Hotel Complex
The breakfast left a lot to be desired
Location, view, friendly stuff, if not too efficient the sync was stuck.
The location to one of the more beautiful beaches in Portugal n/a
Lovely breakfast, comfortable clean rooms, large bathroom great location for beach and great restaurants, fantastic resort for romance holiday.
Stylish place to stay. I think it was a bit overpriced in comparison with other hotels in Portugal. There are plenty of cheaper places to stay in Sagres.
location / cleanliness Breakfast - the worst Coffee i have ever drunk !
a lovely garden and warm welcome
The staff were brilliant especially the housekeeping staff. The bed was the biggest bed I have ever seen!
the staff were friendly and helpful and the place was newly refurbished and clean for what it was (very simple) the room was expensive, but then there was a "sea view"
Modern rooms which were extremely clean. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was very informative and friendly. Location was convenient to view beaches and fortress. Limited night life/dining within walking distance.
Easy access to the town
Easy parking, good location for the beach area, twin bed, calm room Coffee at breakfast was terrible, too less personal for high season
We got the room with the nice ocean view. The room itself was comfortable and clean. Good value for the money
Big hotel with all the facilities you would wish for. Not too crowded when we stayed there. Very friendly staff, who were always ready for us. Nice swimmingpool, if the beach is too windy
Right in the centre of this small fishing village, near the beach.
Our room was lovely very contemporary with a sea view.The staff were very accommodating when we had a problem with breakfast and it was soon resolved. Not much to do outside of the resort, but all very good for families.
Mainly the location of the Beach Rooms and the hotel design very well in harmony with the local nature.
we were in a sea beach appartment and could walk straight out of our pattio doors and were right .... i mean right on to the beach. very very romantic i didnt like leaving ........
The hotel was quiet and the atmosphere was relaxing, which is what I wanted Yes,As Dunas. The food was poor; the menu was 'cleverly' misleading with children's meal prices to the fore misleadingly on the menu. And the bill was seriously overcharging me (charge for full bottle of wine instead of 2 glasses). I didn't find the manager very sympatico and we never went there again. There were so few other diners on the Saturday night we arrived, I guess others had been put off too.
The atmosphere of the resort is wonderfully relaxing - probably because we went in the off season - but still lovely. Can't say what we liked the best as everything was first class - the room, the view, the food, the staff!! The only thing that we did not like was that we only stayed one night.
Restaurant food and staff. Inside swiming pool.
I liked very much the design of this hotel; very nice employees, very good dinner; rooms are very pretty styled as is the whole hotel; beautiful views to the oceans; very good breakfast, WiFi was available for free, also free parking opportunities everything was great
Excellent location and excellent release, complete peace and romance.
The location was fantastic and the staff very attentive. I would recommended it to any of my friends.
Lovely ground floor suite - nice people - great breakfast and good service. A place with feel good appeal. -/-
We stayed for 5 nights in the Suite with ocean view and it was excellent!! Price was good too as the more days you stay the price per night goes down. Great view, big balcony, big and comfortable bed, nice kitchen with everything needed to cook full meals, maid cleaned all dishes every morning, new and modern, very comfortable room, will definitely return. Sauna was broken the entire stay, outdoor pool was ok but left much to be desired, eggs at breakfast were horrible (but the fresh squeezed Orange Juice was absolutely delicious)
the views, the room, the restaurant and the food
Great Hotel, modern design, beautiful setting overlooking the sea and great spa with a choice of many treatments. What more to ask for?
Some of the equipment in the gym was broken. I also found that some of the reception staff (only) could have been more friendly. The staff in the restaurants and cafes and cleaning service were exceptionally friendly.
it's a friendly hotel, in a great spot! good taste on design and very relaxing!
Proximity to the sea. Big balcony with seaview. No free wifi. No elevator.
The back patio area was quite elegent and relaxing offering wonderful views of the ocean. The staff was friendly and the breakfast enjoyable. This hotel provides easy access to the beach and the Castle. Surfing is also nearby. However, there is not much else in this town. The hotel is overpriced because there are so few in this town. The entry way and parking are difficult to find. Our room overlooked an abandoned building across the street.
Good breakfast. Maybe a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Probably a 20-25 minute walk to the other side of town to access the marina and most of the restaurants in town. Rooms had a relaxing marine color scheme. Patio was great to enjoy a snack of wine/cheese in the afternoon. Good value overall. Our room had been heavily smoked in prior to our arrival (probably for years). We had to leave the patio door open for hours to make it breathable. Landscaping photos on website don't show adjacent rocky terrain around hotel oasis.
Great views, nice breakfast, staff helpful, had a "boutique feel" Did not refill bathroom soaps from 1 day to next, internet not free, pretty expensive
View from the room was absolutely breath-taking. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The spa was not operational at the time
Relaxed atmosphere, staff were extremely friendly and helpful, room was good size as was the bed (not the case everywhere we've stayed!). For us this was an excellent location, close to lots of different beaches and other towns to visit.
Ideally located intimate hotel in the real south-western edge of Europe, beautiful cliffs and a direct descent to the beach, which is unique in this area. Unfortunately the tiles in the bathroom should be refreshed!
fantastic location and views
A fantastic view and a great terrace. Nicely decorated with new and modern furniture. That the hotel rooms seem to have severe problems with mould in the rooms. The room stank when we arrived and the moist dripped from the ceiling. When we had aired it out (why couldn't the staff do that before we arrived??) it became slightly better in the room but the bathroom was the same. It became better when we turned off the ac.
what would be expected by its price! don't expect much from room service.
The only plus in this hotel - it is located very close to Cabo da Sao Vicente. The personal is very unfriendly except the young guy at the receiption. Very poor breakfast.The room is rather good, but dosn't cost such money. It's better to stay in Lagos instead of Sagres.
Swimming Pool nice. Room facilities poor. Shower had no bracket, so had to hand hold shower. Noisy at night. Was told I could not park outside door when unloading car, so had to cart luggage quite a distance from car park.
Nice room. Close to Fortaleza de Sagres and Cabo San Vicente, and to some magnificent beaches. Pay attention to the radio antenna of the car when it is parked in the hotel parking...
Cheap. Staff a little surly and bar shut!
I could see cape St Vincent from my balcony as I enjoyed the afternoon sunshine there. One receptionist was a bit grumpy but the older man was veery pleasant. THey was always someone there and they were efficient enough.
The hotel staff were massively unhelpful and unfriendly. The room smelt. The shower was broken. The maids did not clean the room. The breakfast consisted of a toasted croissant and concentrate juice for 6 euro. There is nothing for miles around here. I should have stayed in Lagos. It was the most overpriced hotel I have ever stayed in.
Our room was very spacious and clean with access to the nice pool area. We were there in September and it was very peaceful and quiet. The reception is open 24 hours. It is a short walk to the beach and the main road of bars and restaurants. Also free parking available. The shower was not attached to the wall in our room but staff were so surly we were afraid to ask about this! One member of staff was on duty the entire time we were there, both night and day which may have explained his grumpiness. Breakfast, although edible was not very nice. Although clean, there were ants everywhere in the hotel. Rooms could do with air conditioning.
Location is very nice, there a lot of nice beaches in the area, swimmingpool is clean and quiet. The appartment was clean and had enough room The two seperate beds and the hotel is noisy. During our stay it was pretty quiet but when there more quests staying at the hotel there's a lot of loud noise (we experienced this one night)
Clean, spacious rooms, pleasant pool area, good restaurant immediately opposite the hotel Need air-conditioning in the rooms
Plenty of facilities. Not too crowded. Nice heated pool with panoramic view of Budens Lack of parasolls at the round pool.
Excellent apartment and services. Really superb arrangement. Please provide some additional indications to make easier to reach it.
Beautiful views, gorgeous golf course and very good gym facilities. Close to amazing restaurants all for a lower cost than being in Lagos. The staff were extremely helpful as well, and spoke perfect English for us to communicate effectively! I liked everything, but think that they should improve the description of the rooms. For a very low cost, we received an entire bedroom 3 bath Villa that was gorgeous, and I am sure more people would book if they knew what superior value it was to bring a family there. They also don't advertise how close to the towns and beach they are (5 mins) which was a plus, as it wasn't crowded.
The view from the villa. Upon arrival at the Quinta Da Encosta Velha Resort, reception staff informed us that they did not have the accommodation which we had booked with booking.com ie 3 bedroomed deluxe villa. However they wanted to 'upgrade' my family to a luxury villa with a private pool. They failed to tell us however, that the villa was about 5 miles away from civilisation across a dirt-track road on the side of a mountain. We arrived in 35 degree heat after travelling for 8 hours, and discovered that the nearest shop was miles away. Therefore as we had arrived by taxi, we were abandoned in a remote area without basics such as water and food. Reception staff did not provide any 'induction' information or advise that a car was essential.
Peace and quiet. Space. Pools and Sun Loungers
the villas were serviced to a very high standard and were very clean
spacious well appointed town house with fabulous roof terrace. Good facilities at Parque de Floresta (5 min car journey). stairs everywhere - in the town house, to the town house, round the resort - not toddler/buggy friendly. Also we went May half term yet all facilities in this part of the resort were closed and you had to go to Parque de Floresta - car imperative! There is child friendly pool behind restaurant complex (shut) but pools in accommodation area all 2m+ depth. Excellent child's pool at PdeF but need to pay to access.
A beautiful place in a relaxed rural setting within easy reach of many beautiful beaches. The owners Alvaro, Sophia and their children could not do more to make us feel welcome. The rooms are beautifully appointed and self contained. The place is ideal for families and children. If you want to surf there are boards and good advice available. One of the best places we've stayed. It was very nice to be able to support such a lovely family run business. We will definetly be returning here!
the pool area - full stop. we asked for a quiet room. it was noisy. the room was not ready upon arrival at due time - 1.30 hours late! no refund!the breakfast was plastic ham and cheese and fermenting fruit.insufficient sun beds. no beach towels. no double beds in the hotel - all twin.
The people were friendly and it was a lovely quite hotel. You do need transport though to benefit from the excellent beaches and surrounding countryside...a very pleasent place to stay
helpfull staff no restaurant
It was our 2nd time at this hotel and it is exactly the same... a wanna be that always looks that will never be finished. The smell of cigarets was unbearable is all the room, during all the stay.It was impregnated everywere.
