The location of Arribas cant be beat. If you are looking for the sounds of waves while you sleep, this is the place. We visited off season, before things started to kick off. The hotel staff were great. Shout out to Rita and Sonia. Rita works the front desk and was very helpful. Sonia was a server, shared some great... More

Outstanding view, spacious room, clean, quiet. Very pleasant stay, little dissapointment in restaurant, diner is worth more two stars. Of course little update on decor would be nice, but the location and view makes it out.

Lovely hotel, great friendly staff. It's a little bit secluded, not much about but the hotel will get a taxi no problem for you - we didn't use the bus but it did stop by the hotel. The room we had ( a family room) was huge - 2 separate bedrooms, and the view - well it was like being... More

This hotel has an amazing view of the sea and is surrounded by high cliffs and great places to walk. The rooms are spacious and they all face the ocean. The bathroom was very nice, with a strong shower. The beds are a bit firm, but listening to the ocean puts you right to sleep. The restaurant food was fair.... More

Breathtaking ocean and beach views. We were so close to the surf that we wound up shutting the door because the crash of the waves was so loud. But after 2 flights and a short drive from Lisbon, this was the perfect place to relax. The room was very large and had a good sized balcony overlooking the water. Excellent... More

I can't say enough about this hotel! Situated on the beach, the location can't get any better! The staff at this hotel are incredibly friendly. The rooms are a little old but when you would rather sit on your balcony, which each room has, the room really isn't that important. The restaurant has very good food and had the same... More

I was looking for a special place in order to celebrate my wife's birthday and I feel I couldn’t have chosen better than Hotel Arribas near romantic village of Sintra! Very nice staff, huge rooms... but what really caught our attention was the incredible views over the ocean! We arrived later, near sunset time and we were amazed looking at... More

We stayed our last 3 nights in Portugal at Hotel Arribas. We were initially going to stay in the town of Sintra but I'm glad we chose a more tranquil place with Sintra a short drive away for a day trip. All rooms have ocean views and we enjoyed listening to the surf day and night. Air conditioning didn't work... More

Situated on the beach. On a small hill. Breath taking views. Beautiful walk ways, small cafes, friendly people all around, grab the local beer anywhere. Visit Mar Bar close by and a few other bars. Walk on the beach bare foot in the middle of the night . Open the window to hear the sound of the waves. Surreal. Wake... More

Relaxing place a little ways from Sintra center (15 minute cab ride, but I'd suggest renting a car). The beach is absolutely amazing, and there are a lot of great places for seafood in town. Quieter and probably more for an older crowd with not much night life in the area, though there was one place close by that was... More
