We stayed in this hotel in March of 2015. The hotel is located about 25 miles from the Lisbon airport and is not easily accessible via public transportation. Consequently, we had to rent a car. The drive there is a mix of freeway and narrow winding back country roads. The hotel has a great lobby if you would chose to... More

I spent one night at the Hotel Arribas. I thought it was close to the historic part of Sintra, but it is quite isolated. You have to drive up and down a winding mountain road to get here. The views and the gigantic pool was the main reason I booked here. The hotel is quite an older structure, but there... More

When choosing Hotel Arribas, I quickly learned I had made a fabulous choice. It is right on the beach. All rooms have ocean views and the water is beautiful! The food was outstanding and I would recommend trying out both the breakfast and dinner meals. I actually ordered the same exact meal for dinner twice as the experience was so... More

Hotel is clean and staff lovely. Went with a friend for 5 days and we are going back again this year. We ate at the hotel most days and nights and the food is fairly priced and great. Really recommend a massage by the pool - was really good! Wifi is like most places, a bit dodgy but workable. The... More

Hotel somewhat out-dated but clean and correct. Very friendly staff. Location on the beach, right at the sea is superb. Restaurant is very nice, also breakfast is great. Location was just fine for our purpose: visit Lissabon and Sintra. However car is kind of necessary for convenience.

We stayed for 4 nights here and for what we paid we certainly had good value for money. Unfortunately, there were only a couple of other guests so in the evenings the place was like the "Marie celeste"!! as was the main road that it is on. The road is actually a dead-end and the cafes and bar (which I... More

This hotels wows you from the time you turn the corner of the small road leading to the main beach. Rooms with sea view will delight you for hours. We found a comfortable room with standard amenities and furniture. Service at the desk was prompt and efficient. Parking on site or across the street. A good value in low season... More

We stayed here twice during our tour through Portugal because we liked it so much. All of the tidy rooms have about the same unlimited seaview to the Southwest. Which means on a sunny day you can enjoy a Drink on your private balcony and watch the sun going down before you stroll to the Hotels restaurant to eat one... More

This hotel is right on the beach. We left our doors open at night to hear the sound of the waves and at some point it was too loud. The hotel is dated and doesn't have internet in the rooms so that was a bit of a problem for me but I was able to connect in the lobby. When... More
