“Relaxing break at gorgeous resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

We spent a long weekend at this fantastic resort. Everything about it is quality. The ocean views, 3 great pools, relaxing drinks terrace, cosy bar, friendly staff and immaculate, spacious apartments. It helped that the Dutch football team were there too, preparing for the World Cup! Good enough for Louie Van Gaal, good enough for me! Can't wait to go back.

We stayed here a few months ago for a long weekend and we weren't disappointed. Our room was beautiful with a 4 poster bed , huge balcony with a view of the pool and sea beyond and a stylish modern well equipped bathroom. The common areas are very stylish and clean. The staff were extremely helpful booking restaurants and taxi's into lagos and the bar here was lovely for a pre dinner cocktail. It's a real gem . There's a spa hot tub and all the usual luxury add ons. 10/10 .

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view.

We stayed here for a family wedding. For a start the location is second to none. The view of the ocean is sublime. The hotel itself is very new but is beautiful and not too 'modern'. The staff here were so friendly, pleasant and nothing was a problem. The pools and gardens are gorgeous. Definitely a 5 star experience. Also the food is out of this world. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: An ocean view room is a must.

We had a wonderful time at Cascade resort! The resort is a five star. I think May was the perfect time as the weather was in the low 80's, never saw a cloud and there weren't many people there! The main pool is wonderful! Having spent four nights at Cascade, I felt like we didn't see the place as much because we loved the nearby beaches and towns so much we were hardly there. All 3 pools looked great but mostly swam at the main pool. We didn't use the spa, but pool there was nice and a little warmer. The resturant was very high end and extremly good! The breakfast was good, but the birds were annoying if you eat outside. Loved our entire experience with one small exception. The air in our room never seemed to cool to a satisfactory level. We complained a few times and they had it looked at, but it never changed. Made for restless, sweaty nights. The staff was extremely polite and willing to help out!

We rented a car and drove down from Lisbon before a work event. They were extremly accomidating with the car, parking was free and easily accessible. The car was nice to see the surrounding communities and beaches. You have to go to Praia da Dona Ana and Praia do Camilo (Beaches)! They are breath taking. We also toured the Grottos! All within close proximity to resort!

We recently returned home after having our wedding at the Cascade - words cannot express how wonderful this place is.The food, location, rooms etc etc are all fantastic. However, its the staff that make this place special - they will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is a memorable one. All of our guests were wowed by the service, and most will be returning to sample the hotel again. Thanks to everyone in the Cascade - see you soon

Room Tip: All rooms are stunning but try and get a sea view room or a suite for the ultimate experience

The beauty of this resort is on show from the moment you enter the front gate. The amenities inside the main hotel which include the "Purpur" bar and the "Senses" restaurant are as well defined and unique as the three swimming pools on show outside. The views at meal times are almost as good as the food and drinks available to guests.

Our apartment came with a double bedroom, a kitchen which included an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer and microwave, separate toilet and shower rooms, a dining room and outdoor table and cheers to enjoy the sunshine at breakfast time. Special thanks to the cleaners who took great care of the place whenever we had left to go on a daytrip (for which there are many options).

The staff at the resort were very helpful with any requests we made and were always polite and courteous.

The resort is within walking distance of the Ponta da Piedade. I would recommend this walk for anybody wishing to get a closer look at the spectacular Portuguese coastline.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot think of a single thing which could have gone better.

Obrigado!
