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...

Great place for walks and close to Sintra and Cascais centers by car. The bartender was just perfect for information and service with a smile. So it is a older place but with great memories. A little wind never hurt anyone and the piano bar is a great place to hang out after sunset. The owner is always present with... More

My wife and I spent 10 nights here. Much of the criticism is simply unfounded. The renovated rooms are lovely with wonderful sea views. Yes, it is very windy at times but that's the Atlantic coast, with superb surfing. There are more sheltered bays nearby. Bus service to Cascais is good in the day and an evening taxi back costs...
