Stunning location on the water's edge. Really friendly and attentive service, top quality food and beautifully decorated. Very well located near to Cascais. We went with our 2 children, 15 and 10 and all had a fantastic relaxing time. We had very high expectations and they were met. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Just back from a lovely break and wanted to start with the positives first. The setting,location, pool area, sunbeds, and views are beautiful. The rest was very disappointing. Service was slow, the food was average, we had to send one meal back as it was cold. They brought it out again and it was still cold! The staff were all... More

We are here now. Firstly the good part of the hotel is the outside pool area. This is supposedly 5 star....firstly the smell in the downstairs corridor is appalling.... All I can describe as is like a rotting corpse / off fish all in the corridor and it is drifting in our rooms. We have complained just dragged the receptionist... More

Gorgeous sea cliff views and outstanding hotel decor were enough to distract you from the topless ladies at the pool. The hotel is located on the beautiful ocean promenade with a bike path on one side and cliff trails in the other. We stayed for 3 nights in the two adjacent and connecting rooms on the first floor which had... More

If you want a beautiful sea view and are a fan of lounging by the pool with a gorgeous view this is the hotel for you. We had a great stay here. We had a lovely room with a sea view which was enough for as we spent most of our time at the pool or exploring. The staff were... More

The first thing to say is how great the staff here are. Welcoming, helpful and accommodating. But they are sadly let down by a sub-standard hotel that is style over substance. When we arrived we were 'upgraded' to room 105. I can't help but feel cheated by it, as there's an obviously noisy restaurant above which kept us awake for... More

Having read reviews on here, I wondered if the sea view rooms really worth the extra cash (pretty much double) but I am so glad I didn't spend the extra. My room facing the street (203) was lovely, white wooden floor, blue décor and it had a huge balcony that was in the sun in the afternoon and evenings, unlike... More

The garden rooms are smallish, but perfectly nice - would probably splash out on a sea view next time. Otherwise all fantastic. Friendly service, gorgeous views, v comfy sun loungers, great food, easy 10 min stroll into Cais Cais...didn't want to go home!

Recently returned from a 10 night stay in this lovely hotel. The hotel is situated on a rocky outcrop facing the sea and next to the lighthouse and harbour. It is opposite a beautiful Palace and the bustling little town of Cascais is a five minute walk away. We stayed in a garden room with it's own little terrace and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Planted on the edge of the rocks that rise out of the ocean, Farol Hotel is set in a mansion dating back to 1890, formerly owned by the Count of Cabral. In 2002 an extension was built, creating a superb innovative interface between the 19th century original building and the daring new contemporary structure extending over the rocks and offering superb views of the Atlantic and most picturesque sunsets.Unique in concept, the designer rooms originated from an invitation to select top Portuguese fashion designers to “dress a room”. ... more   less
