We hoped for so much at this fabulously located hotel, but were really disappointed. The service was "spotty"; on more than one occasion, we were apparently forgotten for long periods. This happened at check in, check out and in the bars. Our room was somewhat worn. It was adequate, but less comfortable than we'd been expecting; there is only so... More

I recently had the fortune of staying at Fortaleza do Guincho for a business trip of 4 nights. The room was excellent with fantastic sea view. The staff were extremely courteous and nothing seemed to much bother. The highlight though was the food. It was simply stuning and faultless in every regard; restaurant view, service, ingredients, flavours and presentation. Can't... More

This hotel was charming and relaxing, the staff were very polite and worked extremely hard the room was beautiful all be it a bit small but for a long weekend great. Caiscais is a few miles away and a cab cost9 euro. This is a lovely romantic place to stay for a long weekend the views are magnificent

There`s no doubt about it this hotel sits in a stunning location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the beaches of Guincho. This is primarily why we booked to stay, we did book quite late and the hotel had no rooms with a sea view so we had a small room off the inner court area, we booked a double but... More

We spent an hour of so in the lobby of the hotel waiting for a taxi and took the opportunity to take some pictures. It is a very nicely converted old fortress. It has a striking location on the cliffs overlooking Guincho beach and the Atlantic ocean. Some restaurants in the neighbourhood but not too many. Driving to Cascais is... More

We are currently staying here and have to say this place has the wow factor. Small, boutique hotel with just 24 rooms so it is a quiet relaxing place. We paid for a superior room as they have balconies and glad we did. The sea is right next to us and sitting on the balcony or lying in bed listening... More

We were shocked at the poor service and how the hotel could sell rooms with a horrible sewer smell to then play dumb. The hotel seemed to be cutting corners to save costs on a summer Sunday with only one person at check in. We were not given a single piece of information about the hotel - we were rushed... More

In a brief word, this is the most over-priced, and over-hyped hotel I have stayed at in 25 years of travelling. If you are to believe their prices and self-promotion, you will be expecting to roll around in luxury. NOT! You will not be greeted by any friendly or helpful staff. They are brusque, argumentative, and look down on you... More
