“Fabulous Hotel - will definitely return!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

This hotel is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The Rooms were all beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The bathroom/shower room was huge with good quality towels, dressing gowns and toiletries.
The staff were extremely friendly and advised us of the best places to eat in the resort, ordering us a taxi to take us wherever we wanted to go. We had drinks by the pool in the afternoon and they even allowed us to drink our own champagne on our wedding anniversary!!! even bringing an ice bucket and glasses!!!
Breakfast was fantastic with enough choice for every taste.
We will definitely return to this hotel for the service, location and amenities.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful......

Myself and five friends recently stayed at this hotel, and I can honestly say it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, everything was perfect.
The staff were exceedingly attentive and couldn't do enough for us.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone, and will be returning with my husband.

I spent 2 nights at this beautiful hotel while visiting Cascais for possible conference venues. Unfortunately, their meeting space was not large enough for our meeting (600+ guests), but the hotel is absolutely beautiful, both inside (public areas, restaurants, bedrooms) and outside (terraces, pool, garden).
While I was staying there, there was a medical meeting taking place and almost all meeting spaces and bedrooms were occupied. Nevetheless the group never occupied the main terrace, which allowed individual guests to enjoy the quiet and relaxing atmosfere of the hotel.
On top of this, my room was elegantly decorated and had a view on the pool and a little balcony overlooking the ocean - a great plus!

We have just returned from a week holiday in this hotel, after staying in some of the best hotels in the world this one did not fail to impress, the service was great (we arrived at 10.30am when check in was 2pm but we were in our room within 30mins) and the staff could not do enough to look after us. Breakfast was really nice with lots of choice. The hotel was situated in a good location (approx 10min walk into Cascais) and only 2mins from the Marina which was perfect. The only downside to this hotel was the cost of the food and drinks (a small bottle of water was 4 euros, with the same bottle costing 0.65 in the supermarket!) so would suggest that you eat in the many local restaurants in Cascais all of which are very good...we would definitely return to this hotel.

We booked this hotel with Voyage Prive and got a real bargain. A 5 minute walk from the centre of Cascais and a quality place in every sense. The room was spacious and light with an excellent power shower and bath. Nice pool area with a large sea water pool and very good dinig at lunch tme.
Drinks are not cheap but the service and the ambiance was as good as it gets. Highly commended

Stayed here for a very short weekend before we had to move to another hotel- loved the location, spa was fantastic.
we had very slow service on the terrace bar where we were having lunch while waiting for our rooms to be ready, but in the end was worth it because the food was delicious.
We were upgraded to sea view rooms- very spacious, clean , great bathrooms & amenities.

I would highly recommend and want to go back for a longer stay.

The hotel location, building and the rooms are all very nice. But you also select this kind of hotel because of the quality of the services and we did not think the level of service was upto standard. E.g. we received clean towels for only one person and had to ask several times before we received an additional one; the reception gave us wrong directions to a restaurant; one time service for drinks at the pool side; poor availability of the spa treatments (full agenda); during check-out our invoice was not correct/ during the second attempt, the amount on our cc payment was too high and no excuses were made to us; while helping us getting our suitcase in the back of the car, the doorman was rather careless and bumped it into the car.
