Places to Stay In The Algarve – Memmo Baleeira, Sagres

"Memmo Baleeira hotel sagres algarve"While the Algarve may be a small area in size it manages to pack in many different types of locations, all with their own atmosphere and feel and the Memmo Baleeira hotel in Sagres really encapsulates the laid back surfer lifestyle found along to the west of the region.

The Memmo Baleeira is a four star hotel but it has a very modern and clean design that makes it feel a little more than your average four star hotel in the Algarve and while the design may look a little austere on the outside you will be too busy looking at the amazing views to even notice this at all!

The entire resort has a very relaxed feel to it and is more than welcoming of families with children of any age.  In total there are 144 rooms and suites which are able to accommodate or couples or families equally comfortably.

To be honest the focus of the hotel is in encouraging guests to explore the beauty that is around them but if you do want to spend time in the resort then there is a restaurant, bar and a swimming pool with amazing views across the ocean.

There is also a spa treatment area complete with a sauna and Turkish bath and a heated indoor swimming pool which is a great asset during the winter months, especially to keep little ones entertained on the odd rainy day.

For the children there is a bouncy castle, football area, trampolines, table games, ping pong and outdoor activities and there is also a baby sitting service upon request at an extra cost for any parents looing to enjoy an evening on their own.

The hotel is located on the cliff tops above the Baleeira beach and the surrounding area is the Costa Vicentina National Park which is filed with beautiful windswept beaches and miles of untamed natural beauty.

The wind does blow here and the best time of year to come is actually later in the season when the wind tends to drop down, rather than in the peak summer months when it can be pretty gusty.

While you are here it would be a real shame not to at least try out a little bit of surfing and with their own surf school at the hotel this is a great place for surfers of all ages to give this sport a try for the first time.

This is not a hotel to come to for crazy nightlife and the nearest town is Sagres which is known for having a few good restaurants and a couple of bars but nothing in the way of nightlife such as that seen in nearby Lagos.

For a taste of the wilder side of the Algarve then the Memmo Baleeira hotel in Sagres is an ideal hotel to pitch up with the entire family for a holiday filled with outdoor adventure and stunning scenery.
