To be frank, the location is the main attraction, which is a shame as this was once THE HOTEL! And yet despite all of its numerous deficiencies (which I will list below) Muchaxo retains its charm and a sense of history. However it is suffering from being designed and built in an era that predates mass tourism and the ubiquitous... More

The Estalagem do Muchaxo is now outclassed by the newer Fortaleza, but it is a quaint old hotel on the magnificent Guincho beach. We did not stay there but had a chance to take some pictures, in particular of the lovely old swimming pool and the surroundings.

You need to ask for a room with sea view. This is the best and key part of your stay - the view is absolutely amazing and the noise of the ocean blasting waves onto the fortress and rocks is once in the lifetime. The beach is fun and clean and very beautiful views. The ocean comes and goes -... More

Well i can't say what the experience actually staying at the hotel was like but i can tell you this: I had booked a room for a guest of my wedding who was also the photographer and flying in from New York. The booking was made under her name but with my details (email/mobile number/payment etc). I called up to... More

This is an old fashioned hotel but wonderful preserved. The decor is rustical with a lot of wood. There is a lot of space. This must have been a great hotel in old times. It is now modernised and at the standard we expected. The room was clean with a wonderful view to the beach and the sea. The beds... More

My son and I stayed here for 7 nights and it was so wonderful with views of the ocean. the bedrooms have been modernised but the hotel has a charm and style of bygone years. There are lots of nooks to sit and relax, have a drink or simply read a book. The staff are very friendly and very helpful.... More

We stayed at Muchaxo's for four nights last year and we had a wonderful time. It is not a modern hotel, but it has old style, charm and impeccable service. All the staff, including Mr Muchaxto himself, did everything to make us welcome and enjoy our stay, including cooking a special meal with less than 24hrs notice for my boyfriend's... More

The location is very nice, just next to the ocean and the view from our room was perfect! The room wasn't clean as there where spots on the pillow and as well I found hairs in the bathroom. The bed is a good size and the matrass is ok.

I was a little bit worried having read the reviews after I booked our family holiday but I really can not fault our stay. The location and sea views are amazing, the staff were helpful and friendly, some of the hotel is dated but this added to its charm and individuality. My parents and my uncle, who are aged between...
