“Nice surroundings, excellent golf and super hotel”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This hotel is high end, used to be A Leading Hotel of The World. I enjoyed the golf course, ranked in the top 30 Courses in Continental Europe. The Atlantic Course designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones jr, is escapist golf at its best. They have also an excellent spa. This hotel is more a real golfer's hotel or for couples that enjoy a relaxing and high quality service! Ideal location to visit Estoril, Sintra and all other nice places!

We had a nice stay in this hotel. The room was comfortable, a good size and have nice fittings. Our room was on the ground floor and overlooked the old roman golf course which kept me entertained. The spa and golf course are amazing. The restaurants are amazing the one which served traditional Portuguese dishes with a twist was on of the best we have eaten at anywhere in the world.

Sintra is only a short 10 minute taxi ride away and the hotel is in a stunning location. The hotel has a large wedding the day we where their and many fantastic exotic cars turned up a few hours later the red arrows did a display for the wedding which topped a great week off.

Was lucky enough to spend 5 nights here & the staff is magnificent. The weather was rainy for the first three days but the last two days were great. Didn't get to play golf but it looked great & a few people told it was very difficult. Great grounds as well. Staff is very friendly & did everything they could to make our stay memorable. It is tucked away so you will have to rent a car or pay for taxi's everywhere.

I spent 3 days there for an inspection trip and I must say I was impressed...
> Room: Executive Suite with a view on the golf course and the swimming-pool, could you ask for more? Large room, ultra clean, coffee machine and fridge, big terrace, 2 plasma screens,...
> Dinner: We tried the restaurant "Il Mercato". 5* dishes, from fish to meat, abslolutly flawless. Concerning the breakfast, everything you want was there...
> Facilities: 2 golf courses (9 and 18 holes), swimming-pool, spa, bikes, buggies, tennis,...
> Location: depending on what you need, this resort may seem quite isolated... If you're looking for a die-hard city-trip, you'd better go for an hotel centrally located in Lisbon; if you're looking for a break and plan to pay a one-day visit in Lisbon, it's fine. The resort is really an invitation to enjoy all the facilities on spot!

I'll be back in September with a group and hopefully, I'll live a heaven experience again!

The place is very beautifull, clean and the service is excellent. We tried two restaurants. The food
was excellent but way overpriced. You need a car to use this resort, it is far away from Lisbon.
It is the kind of place to go there and stay all the time in the hotel. They have a great Golf course.
They also have beautifull historic buildings in the premises.
Drawbacks- very expensive food.
This place is ideal for an All-Inclusive package.

Room Tip: It is like Paradise, so any room will be great.
