We ended our memorable trip to Portugal with the last night's stay at this beautiful property that i had found on booking.com. Being foodies we wanted to end our stay with a spectacular dinner with a view, at the Michelin star restaurant associated with this hotel. The hotel Forteleza is separated from the hustle and bustle of this beautiful seaside... More

Yet again Relais & Chateaux live up to their reputation of individual five star properties. This isolated old fortress has been beautifully restored & the location with the waves crashing in is unique. We spent 2 nights here & dined in on one. The restaurant is first class. We would have happily dined here again but like to try new... More

Took my wife here for a celebratory dinner and it was worth every cent. The food was great, the view is amazing and the service was attentive and warm. It's ab expensive restaurant for portuguese standards but in line with other one-star michelin restaurants. Worth a visit!

The hospitality was great, also nice interior. The personnel was kind and eager to tell about the wines. We only needed to say to the personnel to slow down with coming with the next course, else we were finished in 1,5 hour, fortunately this wasn't a problem. We had a 5 course dinner but the quality varied per course. Some... More

On a rock facing the Atlantic with huge windows from the restaurant and many guestrooms we enjoyed a most awesome stay. The interior of the entire house, the competence of all the staff and the whole ambience of the house were very well worth every Euro we spent. The kitchen, including the breakfast, were perfect.

We booked two nights in a junior suite and first of all the extra for the suite was worth it. Our room had two balconies which looked out onto the Atlantic ocean honestly a few metres away. If you left the balcony doors open at night you could hear the waves crashing below, which was wonderful. The room was decorated... More

We'd just left Sintra and were on our way to the Algarve, and had heard great things about Cascais so we didn't want to blow right through. This hotel was the perfect place to splurge a bit and spend 24 hours. The setting of the old fort on the rock is so cool - to watch the sunset over the... More

Thanks again, tripadvisor, because its reviews allow me to design the perfect vacation for me. This hotel has the right combination of everything: a fort from the XVII century, by the sea (on the sea, really) plus you are spoiled by everybody, starting with Diago and ending with the waiters. Because I was too hot at night, they changed my... More

We had two rooms on the ground floor. As commented by others, they were comfortable enough but small and dark. However, it is an old converted fort so opt for something more purpose built and modern if you are intent on more luxurious trappings. It is the location and historic feel to the building that sets this hotel apart. This... More
