We stayed with our two kids in May (I know a little late!). We have a baby and a toddler – what a great 5* hotel with friendly, helpful staff that made our stay a pleasure - nothing was too much trouble! The facilities and food all live up to their 5* rating and the property and environment makes it a... More

Aug 2014 - Excellent hotel, fantastic facilities and choices of food with charming and helpful staff. Gets a little windy, so bring something warm. I always stay in 5* hotels and many do not deserve the rating. The Penha Longa definitely does. Whilst great for kids/families, it's also great for adults as a get away - we didn't feel/hear screaming... More

If you like Five Star luxury with a sense of history then Penha Longa is it. The grounds are set in that of an old Monastery. The Monestery has been restored and is open for viewing and is well worth the visit. A guided walk around the estate will take you around gardens and building dating back to 17th and... More

The hotel is located in a beautiful area and if you have a car (a must !) a lot of things are within driving range. Overall the service is not what you would expect from RC and it appears to be a very young team. However, they make up a lot for their inexperience by their enthousiasm. The Japanese and... More

Staff friendly and professional. Unfortunately we were over-charged for our meal when the following day when we checked our bank statements on returning home. It was a real... More

The landscape around the resort is very nice and the lobby is wonderful decorated with fresh flowers we also had a warm welcome from the staff. We booked a premium room and it worked well for us, enough space and a huge bathroom. We arrived quite late and became no suggestions to book a table in one of the restaurants.... More

Can't fault the quality of the hotel. It is in a beautiful location. I can fault the very noisy construction noise by the pool. Two mechanical nu diggers. Grinders, cement mixers. Not very relaxing. I'dont come on holiday spend a lot of money to be stuck next to a building site. The other problem is that we have come on... More

Disagree with last review - construction was minimal by pool area and crane was nowhere near anyone. I was a guest with small children and not once was it an issue. The hotel dealt with exterior painting sympathetically. The new exterior colour looks amazing against stunning lush backdrop. Cannot rate this hotel highly enough, beautiful rooms, stunning location, near a... More

Overall a great hotel. As of July 2014, if you are planning on spending some time at the pool, ask about the construction. There is a large crane moving heavy loads that appear to be practically going over your head if you are sitting in certain spots. And then there is lots of construction noise by the pool as well....
