After reading the reviews about the fabulous setting we enquired about bringing our visiting family members for sundowners around the pool overlooking stunning sea views. Although we were not hotel guests we were assured that we would be welcome. On arrival we walked through a series of rooms with interesting decor and works of art out to the patio and...

I've just returned from a lovely 3 night stay at Farol hotel. We stayed in one of the Designer Double rooms with a sea view for the first 2 nights and the view from our balcony was amazing! I highly recommend a sea view room if you love the ocean. We actually spent the 3rd night in a smaller garden...

We were recommended the Farol by friends and were not disappointed. The views and quiet location were wonderful and it was a very high standard of breakfast. Our only reason for not giving 5 stars was that when we were sitting around the hotel we were constantly being asked if we wanted anything to drink etc which made us not...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Farol hotel. It is well placed for walking into town and has a wonderful vista and quiet, adult ambiance.

We booked this hotel at the last minute wanting to enjoy some quiet time. The first room we selected was a Designer Twin Sea View. It was on the top floor of the hotel and had no balcony, but windows that opened to face the sea and a side window which overlooked the roof. When we arrived, the room smelled...

Super friendly staff and of course a fabolous location. Very good restaurants. Stylish interior, good pool rules, close to the city center. Rooms pretty, shower in mine was super awesome. However, there are some drawbacks, I had a designer room and it definitely needs some refurbishment. The nightstand had cracks, the wall had marks and the power blinds make a...

Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful sea views and clean pool area. Had the misfortune of staying in a garden view room that was yet to be refurbished. The room had a jacuzzi, though. Doors are paper thin so you could hear everything happening in the hallway. Decent, fresh breakfast with plenty of variety. Shame about the Nespresso coffee.

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past year and love it. The rooms we have had are of a reasonable size and the large bed is very comfortable.

The location and the grounds are stunning. Unfortunately what ruins the hotel from being on top is the cheap interiors and it needing renovations to make it current(circa 1990's modern). The awful powerful perfume smell is also off putting. At the end of the day, if the interiors in the lobby and rooms were redone it would be one of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
