We booked this hotel using booking.com and got a fabulous price. So when we arrived we assumed we would be put into the worst room - wrong! We had a wonderful, quiet first floor room with ocean view. The room itself was nice sized, nice bathroom, and very quiet. Breakfast was very good in their dining room which overlooks the... More

I didn't stay at this hotel, but dined in the restaurant. I had popped my head in during the day to find this amazing looking dining room, funky lighting, modern chairs, tables and decor. Booked for that evening. When we arrived, the beautiful dining room that I had been looking forward to dining in was shut and we were ferried... More

Awesome location, great seaview rooms (really, I don't believe you have many hotels that close to the sea!), very clean hotel, nice amenities, helpful and attentive staff. The hotel itself is very vibrant: always a nice buzz at the bar and restaurant. Premium quality breafkast,... Staff is able to anticipate to unexpected events, which makes this hotel truly stand out!

We stayed here one night while we visited Portugal. I chose this hotel based on the review I read at Expedia. I not disappointed. It's located at the edge of Cascais town and the the beginning of the chic residential area. The hotel sits next to the ocean, on the right side of the light house. So it's facing the... More

The location is spectacular, the crashing waves right outside the door make it quite an experience. The quality of the rooms is very good, and the gentlemen at the bar were friendly and very customer oriented, as were the reception staff. The food in the restaurant is nothing short of spectacular. Absolutely terrific, the duck unrivalled. For convenience I would... More

The design, decor and location are very beautiful. The service is very good, The rooms are not very large. Expected more at breakfast, is essentially a very romantic hotel. I thought a little expensive for the hotel that is but I understand that to have quality have to pay dearly.
