Great 60's make-over

This hotel "at the end of the world" (as we once knew it) still has the feeling of a 1960's resort away-from-it-all. This village, known in Portugal as the birthplace of it's age of great discoveries (and also the name of one of it's biggest beer brands, though brewed in Lisbon), has a that feeling of the choosen few. Daytime people flock from the not-so-far big tourist resorts on the Algarve coast to the cape "where all ends" Usually they don't even bother to stop in the tiny village which has nothing much to offer anyway. The surf crew down the bay don't mind... The even better choosen few (read: more cash in pocket) stay at the more traditional "Pousada" but if it's today you are after stay here. This hotel is as fresh as the wind that is usually hitting Sagres. All at prices that it is not difficult to be one of those choosen few.
