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.

We stayed for one night, our room was very small, dark, very old & dusty. However other room in our family was seaview, larger, more light and with the sound of the ocean, delightful.

The room was architecturally amazing, the service was terrific, the location was totally cool and the view was the best part. We waited for our room to be ready on the small beach next to the hotel surrounded by rocks and took a short drive to Sintra. Everything about it is recommended.

Relais & Chateau says all that need be said in my opinion. I find they always live up to their name. However, this property is also stunning with beautiful views and beaches. It is private and on a desirable coastline in Cacais. A lovely spot for a respite.
