Was here on a 3 day Conference with European colleagues. Totally Beautiful resort and outdoor pool area. The gardens and buildings are both lovely and pittoresque . My large room with a View of the hils was extremely comfortable with luscious spacy beds and all necesseties. The bellboys were not only polite and helpful but charming and positive ~ likewise...

After 6 years, we returned to this beautiful resort for another short break. It’s nested in the middle of a National Park, surrounded by a flourish forest and a golf course, close to the romantic Sintra and just 20 minutes away from Lisbon. The hotel is currently under renovations outdoors, but already renovated inside. We were recognized as returned and... More

We have just returned from our third stay at this hotel. Without exception, the staff are fantastic. Nothing is to much trouble. The hotel is very clean and food outstanding. The outdoor restaurant for lunch is a lovely location, overlooking the pool. The Italian restaurant is very good for dinner with a wide menu choice. Rooms and bathrooms are spotless... More

This is a very nice hotel with great service and wonderful food, but it is very much by itself. It is an effort to go anywhere else. The pool area is nice but small so there isn't a lot to do onsite. We were there for a business conference and our group tends to select secluded locations so we are... More

I am so impressed with this hotel, the interior design is beautiful with fresh flowers & art everywhere. The staff was over the top helpful & friendly. They have a gym, spa, hair salon, retail, & indoor pool in one area. As well as a gorgeous golf course & outdoor infinity pool. You could spend a whole day just walking... More

Stayed here for a week's conference and everything was as you might expect for such a high end hotel. Facilities very good - my room was spacious and everything generally of good quality, and conference facilities were good. The staff were helpful and friendly at all times. I'm not sure I'd go here for a romantic getaway holiday - it's... More

This may be the best resort we have ever stayed at. The facilities are modern and luxurious. Set among the rolling hills of Sintra and close to so many World Heritage Sights. Day trips to all the castles, walled villages and even Lisbon are so easy. Then come home and use the gym, swim, play tennis or golf. Did I... More

After looking around for places to have our wedding ceremony and reception we visited Penha Longa. I don't believe we had seen the half of it when our decision was already made. The ceremony and cocktail was held at Jardim do Núncio and the dinner party at Arola. Everyone, from the very first day was so nice, everything was beautifully... More

Second visit to this property in a year. The property is undergoing renovations currently, but this is not a reason to delay a visit. Incredible location, service, and amenities. The issue with the musty smells have been resolved. The carpets in the rooms and furniture are beng revamped. Would like to see some art work in the rooms, but the... More

The property is beautiful, but several of my guests commented that with some work it could be amazing! I think I would have to agree. This could have been the best President's Club we ever had, but it didn't quite get there. The staff is all very nice and they are working on updating the exterior. If you are thinking... More
