They have a small terrace here, open to non residents, where you can get lunch and drinks. It has a fantastic view over the bay. We stopped here on a bike ride from Cascais. The staff were lovely, and the beers were not expensive.

We had the pleasure to spend 3 nights here in early September during which I had my birthday, one I will never forget. The hotel staff made me feel so special and left a kind gift in our room on the day, it was very touching. It exceeded every expectation we had of a 5* hotel from the quality of service through to the food and drink. Eating in the restaurant one evening is a must (if you can), and the location is great for days at the beach and quality seafood restaurants nearby. We are desperate to return one day! Thank you to the excellent staff for making it an exceptional experience.

We'd left it late to book a place to stay near the Praia do Guincho surf beach, but thankfully secured accommodation at the Fontaleza do Guincho. It's a wonderful historic building overlooking the ocean with an excellent restaurant, handy to the surf beach but also the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Probably better suited to a couple's holiday although all the staff were great with kids. Note, there is no swimming pool, but there are two nearby.

Fortaleza do Guincho is the perfect costal hideaway—just a short hop from Lisbon. I love the slightly remote location, the hotel‘s intimate size—and the absolute focus on quality. Rooms are very characteristic for a Fortress—you pretty much feel like entering a different century. Yet all amenities are of the highest standard. Quality, all around, is exceptional. The service is friendly and diligent. All members of staff appear proud to work here. Attention to detail is high. The hotel features a Michelin Star restaurant with an amazing view (recommendation). But food in all outlets is excellent. At the time of my visit the hotel had implemented an excellent Covid-regime, strictly followed by all staff (and most guests-the rest were kindly reminded). I felt very safe. Thank you to both the brilliant GM and all staff for a wonderful stay.

Excellent Hotel and Restaurant. Stayed two nights with one dinner at their Michelin restaurant. In short an amazing experience. Excellent experience at the restaurant with amazing food and outstanding service. Rooms meet high expectations even so a bit old fashioned and dark. Very good breakfast (served at the table due to Covid19) with good service (lacks a bit attention for basic things). Overall? Outstanding service by the team. Strongly recommended for 1 - 2 nights
