Just back from a 5 night stay with my elderly Mum. We arrived late at night and first impressions did not disappoint. Just as our taxi pulled up to the door our bags were taken by a staff member and delivered to our room. Most of the rooms come with baths but the staff had purposely allocated us a room with a walk in shower due to my Mums age, it was very thoughtful.
Breakfast in the morning was in the Resturant overlooking the marina. As well as a great selection of fresh fruit, cheeses, hams, cereal and hot food the kitchen will gladly make up an omelette or whatever you fancy.
Housekeeping were very helpful, quickly delivering an iron and extra hangers to our room when requested.
I found the location of this hotel to be perfect. Just at the end of the town it was a perfect distance to walk after dinning in the town in the evening.
We actually ended up eating in the main Resturant in the hotel on 3 evenings, which we have never done in any previous holidays. Here the food was so good, and the menu so extensive, and such good value, it was worth it. And a special mention to one of the waiting staff Carina, who looked after us each night we ate in the resturant and who real went above and beyond with her food recommendations and convincing the chef to fillet a whole sea bream for both my mum and I on a busy Saturday night.
Unfortunately there is so much to do and see in Cascais and the surrounding villages that we never did get to try out the hotel Spa, hopefully we will next time as if I do get to go back to Cascais I will definitely return to this hotel.
PS they do a great value over 55 rate!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This luxury hotel, Pousada de Cascais, is set within the walls of the historical fortress, the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais, in the centre of Cascais. It is a place where ancient meets modern, and many of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks which makes each space a different experience, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the huge internal patio spaces. ... more less
