What a wonderful resort for adults and kids alike! There is something for everyone (golf, spa, horse riding, kids club, indoor and outdoor pools, themed evenings and much more) and all in the most idyllic setting. The rooms, staff, facilities and activities were all top notch and we never wanted for anything. There wasn't anything too small or too big... More

Had a great one night stay at this Ritz Carlton nestled into the green forestry of Sintra. The pool area is very pretty and the hotel seemed to offer a lot for families and young children to do (i.e., mini golf, treasure hunts, candy hour, popcorn hour, playroom, ping pong, etc.). The golf course was beautiful (although we didn't play... More

This is a stunning resort hotel in an amazing location. 40 minutes from Lisbon and 30 minutes from the Beach set in the lush cooler Sintra Hills. They have everything you can think of; golf,horses,tennis,lovely walks historic site, and plenty of space with 6 on site restaurants to give variety. Staff are over trained if anything with that annoying habit... More

I generally appreciate the Ritz and am a Marriott platinum member and have been for many years. I only made one request about a month before I came and that was to have a room ready, if possible, upon an early arrival from an overnight flight from the states. We arrived at the hotel at 10 am. They told me... More

Ritz Takes pride in calling their employees Ladies and Gentlemen. I am not sure whether we have met a proper employee. It is more like boys and girls experiment on clients. There are many trainees around who seem to be 25 or younger. They often do not speak basic English and do lack training. The concierge desk is a joke... More

After many years in Penha Longa I have to say that while the place is still very beautiful, the service has fallen well below expectations. In the restaurant the waiting time is just too long, there are way too many non professional staff, some of them do not even speak a decent english. Some times the food was even cold.... More

We are a family with 4 boys under the age of 11 and we have enjoyed some fantastic travel experiences. That said, we have never felt inclined to revisit anywhere (it's a big world after all….) that is, until the Penha Longa. There is so much about this hotel that appeals - the journey (just 2 and a half hours... More

But it isn't... The food is great, the nature is beautiful, the staff is great, kids club even better. The greatest activities are done daily with the kids. But the hotel is 15 minutes from the beach, so the pool is quite important to me. And there is the flaw: the pool is quite small and has some big disadvantages.... More

Located in a closed park with a great golf course. Ideal to disconnect from the busy town. Very quiet. Excellent service and food. Great place for business meetings and conventions. Convenient for family trips too. Taxi service is available from reception.

A very special hotel that for us lived up to the excellent reviews on TA. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, particularly Elaina in charge of housekeeping who was incredibly conscientious. The kids loved the activities and we hope to return soon.
