Travelers' Choice
Set on the absolute waterfront of Cascais’s dramatic Atlantic coastline, Farol Hotel reflects the unique charm of the township. Delightful old-world houses and cobbled streets frame a graceful bay on Portugal’s spectacular Estoril Coast to tell the story of a bygone era. The capital, Lisbon and the international airport are an easy 35-minute drive along excellent roads. A local train also runs between the city and Cascais. Lisbon is served by full service and budget airlines from all the major European hubs, which include Frankfurt, Paris, London and Zurich plus Stockholm, and Moscow. Arrive fuss-free and in style at Lisbon International Airport with a pre-arranged Farol Hotel limousine to meet you and transfer the short scenic trip to Cascais. As a proud member of prestigious Design Hotels, Farol Hotel is a wonderfully eclectic composition of adventurous architecture that embraces a remodeled 19th century private mansion that was once owned by the Count of Cabral, together with unique contemporary additions. The result is an inspire union of the old and the new. The Farol Hotel has a non-smoking policy in all its areas.

Due to Covid situation we booked the hotel at lower rate and upon arrival we received an upgrade. That was good otherwise we would have had the feeling to have paid too much. Let me start with the good things: great position overlooking the sea, no better place in Cascais. Great sea views from the restaurant. Overall good service. Quality of the restaurant is good, although expensive. Overall we had the feeling that the hotel needs a general facelift (corridors, outdoor furniture, ...).

I spent a few days in this gorgeus hotel recently. It was a great experience since the moment we set foot in the hotel. 5 stars all over. Beautiful boutique hotel in the best location in Cascais. The decoration is out of this world, tasteful and elegant. The hospitality provided by the staff was amazing. Farol Hotel is the place to stay in Cascais.

We loved our visit at Farol hotel due to the amazing hospitality provided by the staff, amazing view of the ocean as the hotel is literally on a cliff. The front desk staff specifically Michael Price was great. He genuinely took care of us, provided recommendations for tours, restaurants, and catered to a barrage of questions since this was our first visit to Portugal. We stayed at the Farol suite with Jacuzzi, the view on the patio was great. The hotel is also walking distance to the town center, Boca de inferno and many other local attractions. My recommendation for improvement would be updated wash rooms and general modern touches in the suite as there was not enough space to put stuff in the vanity area. Also, there needs to be more staff at the restaurant as when it was busy the staff was getting overwhelmed serving everyone since the buffet is no longer self serve due to covid. The breakfast area also needs to be monitored for social distancing as on Saturday it was completely full which made us nervous. But, overall amazing visit and we will surely return to this hotel.

We spent a fabulous 5 nights stay at this small 33 room boutique hotel with our 2 daughters (10 and 13). We were incredibly fortunate to get excellent rates due to the lack of airbridges between the UK and Portugal at the time of booking which we were grateful for. We had rooms 210 and 211 ocean facing design rooms. Rooms were spotlessly clean, functional with very comfortable beds and pillows although on the smaller side the views made up for this. Both rooms had small balconies. Bathroom again, small and functional. The rooms have external electronic shutters which block the light, they are noisy going up and down. The rooms also overlook the restaurant area which could bother some people as the noise definitely floats up. This didn't bother us as we were out in the evenings. Breakfast was included in our rate and was of a very high standard. Fabulous quality bread, cakes, pastries along with a selection of cold meats / cheeses. We were also able to order hot food from a menu. Breakfast / Restaurant service was professional and efficient. We had dinner twice in the restaurant. Eating from both menu's (Japanese and the regular menu). Both were excellent, although on the expensive side. The pool is salt water, not heated but was a perfect temperature when we were there mid August. Plenty of sun beds to choose from with stunning views. Check in / out was efficient. From a Covid perspective there was sanitiser stations at all appropriate places. Staff and guests wore masks while inside the public places and tables and sun lounges were socially distanced. Look forward to visiting again.
