We came to Quinta das Murtas with little expectations - it was a good price and they seemed nice when we made the reservation. The reviews here about parrots and stuff intrigued us, but once there, we realized they didn't paint the whole picture. We loved it so much we actually extended our stay in Sintra and QdM was the major reason why. It was amazing: lovely setting, wonderful garden, hot salt water swimming pool, bog pond, little pond, flowers and trees and cabins and little houses spread all around. We stayed first in the Romantic Room and then in a sort of a little apartment down by the pond and it was wonderful. The interiors are designed with lots of taste and, while preserving the Portuguese style and a rustic air, they lack nothing in comfort.
Breakfast was adequate, with choices for all and it was served in a nice salon facing the parrot dens, so it made for entertainment all by itself. They had wi-fi all over as well. In short, wonderful!
Pros: lovely setting, good price for value, perfect for couples, makes visiting Sintra the ideal experience.
Cons: might not be so fun for large families, as the climate is a bit humid nights can get chilly and inside it can be a bit humid as well.
The apartments by the pond are wonderful, but make sure you pull all the curtains tight if you want...
