While I did not stay here we did spend a delightful afternoon on the property. The views are spectacular of Guincho Beach. They have a great salt water swimming pool and the view from the restaurant is spectacular to watch the waves breaking on the beach and the kite surfers out. Free WiFi and a very interesting owner in Tony... More

A classic beach hotel. Pounding surf, roaring waves, fading pix of movie stars on the walls, enormous bar, huge pool, beautiful beach, super-king size beds with mood lighting, excellent dinner, a real throwback-in-time feeling when you are one of the few guests in January. A few kilometers east of Cascais along the lovely beach, great spot from which to explore... More

As an Adicted to the Guincho Beach and Sea , since my early youth, Muchaxo has always been a reference, for this stylish beach and adventurous West Coast of Cascais, as the Reunion place and Inn for a smooth afternoon cocktail with friends, coffee or occasionally a stupendous seafood meal . Together with my Wife, last year, decision was taken... More

If you prefer character over perfection, then this hotel could be a memorable choice. The Location above and on the beach is spectacular, as many seviews state here. But also the interior is very impressive and likeable. Someone has made his personal dream come true: that's the Impression. The large public spaces (bar, restaurants, breakfast room, lobby, hallways, patio) have... More

Location of this hotel is fantastic right on guincho beach but lacks a lot of its former glory. Rooms are only budget style and there is general lack of maintenance. Great for budget break for surf lovers. Breakfast is simple continental style. Staff are homely and we have stAyed here on many occasions. Dogs are allowed on request which is... More

Not a 4 stars hotel - rooms was terrible, old fashioned, windows was not clean. Only only the place was good - few meters from the beach. Breakfast was very basic. The price for this hotel didn't meet the quality.

Absolutely stunning position on the beach, this hotel promised much and delivered very little sadly. Labelled as a 4* hotel we were booked in for one night recently at the end of September 2015. Having been shown to our room, which was dingy and dirty - and much evidence of squashed mosquitoes on the walls - we went for a... More

Recently visit this hotel in a beautiful part of Portugal. The staff were great and it was obviously that in years gone by this hotel would have been one of the best in the area. Old style with lovely heavy wooden furnishing. The restaurant was good but the menu did not vary the specials were the same each night the... More

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
