It is 7 Km. Easy cab but the hotel gives you bikes. We watched movies there in the beach and then enjoyed dinner and drinks on an amazing roof top bar!

Dear Alberta, I am really sorry for my late answer, but I did not realise that we did not answer to your question. I am afraid the Hotel is built is a fortress from the XVII century without space to have a fitness centre, but we are located just in front of the beach in a very quite area where you can go out and run; beside we do have a special agreement with a club close by us where they have a fitness centre. Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to come back to us. With our best regards, Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho Relais & Châteaux Tel. : +351 214 870 491 @ : reservations@guinchotel.pt

"the rooms have a closed balcony with a window. Calm and comfortable."
