Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel & Spa Versus Cascais Miragem

Hi there,

My husband and I are planning our 1st summer holiday since getting married last Oct. We have decided to visit Portugal, Cascais for 5 nights & Lisbon for 4 nights.

We are still trying to decide on which is the better hotel in Cascais,

Grande Real Villa Italia or Hotel Cascais Miragem.

Has anyone stayed in either or both?

The reviews are mostly positive for the 2 hotels but both have some negatives also.

Im a little confused.

Thanks

Swim2k

We very much enjoyed our stay a Grande Real Villa Italia. We are members of the Leading Hotels of the World and got a very nice room upgrade with a lovely balcony over looking the pool and ocean. The breakfast a Grande Real Villa was one of the best we have experienced in Portugal. We didn't take advantage of the pool or the spa. It is a pleasant walk to downtown Cascais. We would definitely return to this hotel if we were planning to stay in Cascais again. Yours, Claudia

I think it was about 15 minutes of strolling. Hubby is addicted to taking pictures of EVERYTHING. It is a beautiful walk with many things to distract his shutterbug eye. We were never in a hurry so having him stopping to take his perfect picture was never upsetting. You might be able to do in less time IF you are on an agenda.

Don't forget to visit Santini's gelato place that is a bit outside of the tourist area. Well worth the walk to enjoy their special flavors. It is or was less crowded than their second shop in the Chiado area of Lisbon. It makes a great afternoon break. Yours, Claudia
