This Inn is rated 4 stars. Dont expect that from the rooms, but, do expect a 5 stars / wonderful location over Guincho Beach. Breakfast reasonable. In winter, it´s really cosy, due to the fireplace in the long hall before the restaurant (over the beach...). This "long hall" is really something, since there are two main areas: one, with a...

The rooms in this hotel look nothing like the website. The hotel has a four star rating but is more like a two bedroom guest house. The breakfast in the morning was typical of a guest house. The bar is dark and cold and the restaurant in dire need of renovation. We were supposed to stay three days but left... More

Excellent hotel with a very friendly, helpful staff, in particular the sweetie Margarida. I had never met such lovely person, who made me feel so great and enjoy my stay much more. Margarida lent us an electric kettle and an iron upon arrival, and also accompanied us to our room. Margarida was always very nice with me and hubby, giving... More

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
