What a wonderful place! Just don't believe any of the negative reviews you read on here or anywhere. The hotel has got the most wonderful character built with love and great thought. Although it may be in need of a bit of updating, who cares when you're in the most wonderful location. The staff are so lovely, always a smile... More

Do not believe everything that you read about this place, especially if it is negative. Of course expect the regular Portuguese service LOL - nothing special, however, they were really good with any of our special requests. The monkfish and cod were amazing. Being from Atlantic Canada, where we have access to fresh delicious fish on a regular basis, this... More

A unique location - on the best beach in the area, at the foothills of the national park, with some of the best restaurants and historic sites in Portugal pretty much on the doorstep. If you want a poolside bar, modern bathrooms, bellboys etc, you will need to stay in Cascais town (and pay twice as much). It could definitely... More

Ten minutes drive from the center of Cascais, a slightly dated hotel, but with all you need and not too expensive unlike most of Portugal on the coast. The pool is great and cut into the cliff side. The beach is beautiful, has full time lifeguards too. the hotel is a bit tired, but clean and the rooms were lovely,... More

We stayed there for a few nights. Hotel was surprisingly old, dirty and stinky. Room was a quite OK, but the lack of maintenance were everywhere. Bathroom was a second big disappointment. Dirt, mold and rust everywhere. Do not expect that you will be using pool area. It looks like no body to took care about it since the building... More

The location of this hotel is absolutely fabulous. The beach is great and if you arrive at the right time you can enjoy a nice walk watching a gorgeous sunset. The hotel i am guessing was once a nice place to stay. Pity no-one has bothered refurbishing and maintaining the place. It is extremely run down. Rooms decent size but... More

Just returned from a 5 day visit to the Fort ( stayed an extra night due to the French Air Traffic Control Strike) which I saw as a free days holiday! The hotel is in a great location on the western coast of Portugal, the wind makes it ideal for surfing and kite boarding. The surf school under the hotel... More

You got it! The location was fabulous in terms of view. Perched up on the rocks overlooking gorgeous beach. Inside and ouside hotel was "coastal shabby". Room was clean, folk were friendly and service was good but a good upgrade inside and out is well overdue. Lots of "yesteryear" memorabilia around if you like/don't like that. Regarding location and view... More

The hotel has very good location - right on the beach. We had ocean view room, so the view was wonderful. Room was clean, but everywhere in the hotel there was lack of maintenance. It could be really nice accommodation a few years ago. But now it is really decay and obsolete place.
