Stayed in a room located overlooking the pool. Room was clean but the furniture looks very tired and outdated. Front desk staff are friendly.

There is parking available; located about a 10 minute drive to Sintra; walking distance to the beach.... More

We decided that Stalag Sintra Sol might be a better name for it. The apartments were clean but very basic, reminding us of a Butlins chalet. The pools are large and well... More

We stayed here last minute as we had a problem with accomodation that we had booked in this area. There were 12 of us in the party so were very relieved to find somewhere available. The kids loved the pools and slides and diving board. We were a very short walk to fab seafood restaurants that were very good value.... More
