Where to start, beautiful hotel, fantastic service, the staff were brilliant. The room had a little anti-room with a chaise longue where you could just listen to the waves and the wind. Beach towels are available from the hotel and the bathrooms come with toiletries, bath robes and slippers. Eating in the Michelin starred restaurant was a true experience and... More

Today we went for the lunch to the Forteleza do Guincho, and it was sublime. In thecrestaurant you have a great ocean view. We ordered the 5 courses degustation and it was composed of portuguese products, a lot of fish (crab, sea brasem) and meat ( black pork). Note this is 1 star michelin restaurant, so expect something creative.

We loved this hotel. We stayed 1 night, staying in their best room, champagne in the room and dinner in the Michelin star restaurant as part of a romance package, as this was part of our honeymoon. It was wonderful, and I would very much recommend for a special occasion. The atmosphere of the hotel, the sound of the waves... More

Wonderful small hotel. Beautiful views and personalized service. We had a junior suite that was very roomy with a view of the Atlantic coast to die for. Breakfast buffet (included) was good. restaurant has spectacular views. Did not eat dinner there but understand that it is very expensive.
