The view from our room out into the ocean was fantastic. The food at the restaurant was excellent. We stayed for three days. First day we reported that the TV in our room was not working. We were told a tech would be sent to fix the problem. The problem was never fixed. We reported stains on the rug and... More

If you arrive in Cascais, you must go to see this place. An isolated place, where nature speak only. With a beautiful view at the ocean, with a clean beach, with a great hospitality ...your holiday will be gorgeous. Here, I'd try for the first time surf. First time, I had not courageous, shame on me. :P About Estalagem Muchaxo... More

We were for the first time there, but for sure we'll return. The location on the sea is fabulous. The rooms, while small are historic and furnished with period pieces. The lobby courtyard is great. The place has an outdoor pool and exit to the ocean. If you are passionate about surfing, it is a perfect place! The staff is... More

We spent 6 nights here. We wanted to get away from it all and we certainly did that. The whole hotel is full of comfy seating areas which we made the most of. The hotel is a taxi ride out of town. There is a local bus too. Both cost the same if there are two people.However there is a... More

We only stayed one night here and I must say that it was worth it. It is a bit old fashioned and it seems that it stopped in time but it has a good feeling and the location is amazing. Staff is really nice and everything was clean. Breakfast is medium and the pool needs maintenance. The hotel as an... More

WE booked this hotel because it afforded us the opportunity, to be central to Lisbon, and to the Sintra hills surrounding the city. We could not have found a more desirable spot! The hotel itself was a little dated but it only enhanced the experience by what it offered. It gave us a chance to just kick back and relax!!!... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly, kind and very helpful. There is absolutely no doubt that if you want to stay in a hotel on or by the beach this is the right choice. The beach is glorious and the sea view rooms look right up the beach. The rooms were a tiny bit... More

We spent 11 nights there and have to say possibly the best holiday ever we have had. Great staff,very helpful, real people and a building full of character and redolent of a bygone era. The views from the room are possibly the best we have ever encountered. Would we go again yes yes yes.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was good. Our room was bright and cosy, old fashioned but clean and tidy but nothing can beat the stunning views from the hotel, 5 star views overlooking beautiful surf Guincho beach. Overall the hotel looks tired and in need of refurbishment so if you are looking for... More
