“Originally built in the 1960s as a hip hideout for surfers, but recently renovated, refurbished and expanded by a dynamic new group of hoteliers, Memmo Baleeira is now part of the Design Hotels portfolio. Bedrooms are simple and uncluttered with sea views and crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets. There is an internet room, a good spa, a cosy restaurant and a magnificent outdoor pool from where you can look down on to the little fishing harbour beneath.”

“Characterised by its relaxing, contemporary atmosphere of design, this 4 star hotel has everything you need for a weekend break from your daily routine or for a few days of holiday retreat.
The resort's 144 rooms and suites, with views over the sea and over Baleeira harbour, provide you with all the comfort of the Memmo unforgettable bed and are fully equipped.
Situated in Costa Vicentina Natural Park, the hotel is surrounded by stunning deserted beaches and the wild nature of an unforgettable beauty.
The town of Sagres offers you a chance to sample the renowned gastronomy of the region, with several restaurants near the hotel serving excellent fresh fish. Finally there are various points of historical interest to visit, such as Sagres Fortress, the world's first nautical school, and Cape St. Vincente, topped by one Europe's largest lighthouses.”
