The hotel was in a great location with a beautiful beach and rocks. Our room was very nice, spacious with an enclosed terrace, comfortable bed and modern bathroom. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the service was excellent. One of the reasons we chose this hotel was for the restaurant. My husband and I are foodies who travel to eat... More

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. No pool but a sunbathing terrace, not very luxurious to be honest as your sunbed is literally 5 meters away from all the campers parked next... More

This Hotel and location are exceptional in every way. The views are phenomenal. Just getting up in the morning and watching the ocean and the surfers was a joy. The stall was wonderful and the furnishings in the hotel were classic with some modern nods in the reception area. Breakfast was very enjoyable and dinner in the restaurant a treat.... More

It's quite difficult to describe this as the outside is a very old fort , but when you walk inside you are in a completely different world of a very modern stylish hotel .

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.

The staff was very solicitous and genuinely friendly. The food in the restaurant under a new chef emphasized local seafood and was both beautiful and creative. Even the bar fare was amazingly good (lobster pasta, octopus salad, and wild mushroom barley risotto was yummy).
