Not the prettiest hotel from the outside - not particularly stylish and painted a mustardy yellow, but inside is lovely. Everywhere is spacious, light and airy; including the bedrooms - all of which have a balcony overlooking the sea and the hotel swimming pool, which is the biggest I've ever seen in my life! The reception is large with a... More

This hotel looked amazing from the pictures and still did when we arrived. The views from our balcony were to die for, watching all the surfers in the sea as well as the biggest pool I have ever seen. I would definitely stay here again. I think the staff could be a little more organised for when guests arrive and... More

This is a beautiful hotel and the views from everywhere over the Atlantic Ocean are amazing, however the bedrooms need updating, the tiles are old and have dirt embedded in them, the mattresses are not great, the whole room feels tired and out of date. The Breakfast was not great either, boiled eggs were so hard you could use them... More

All rooms have a sea view, as do the restaurant and cafe bar. Restaurant is good, but not cheap and... More

Had a lovely stay here. The rooms are quiet bug, over looking the ocean, with large balconys. It was nice and clean but definetly need refurbishing. We only had breakfast here, which was good, plenty to choose from. There is a few restaurants in walking distance. The hotel is in a perfect location, to spend a few nights away from... More

Great place to base yourself if you are visiting Sintra and surroundings, specially if you have children. Fantastic beach (but not for swimming). Hotel has a giant outdoor pool. Rooms are generous and clean with good sized balconies. Nice bar and restaurant & coffee shop. Two excellent seafood restaurants not 5 minutes walk from hotel. Great value for mney.
