“Very good hotel, amazing region”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

First, the hotel is situated within a park and surrounded by a golf course . The location is stunning and conveys peace and relaxation .
Following details :
Breakfast just wonderful , an amazing variety and you can still choose the restaurant .
Dined at the Italian restaurant , the Sommelier treatmen twas well above average and the food was very good , but I expected more of the latter .
The service from the reception staff was impeccable , and the front desk staff was very polite and helpful .
The room and very comfortable, large beds and was the expected from the brand.

Points for attention
A car is desirable if you do not intend to exclusively use the hotel , since this is a relatively remote location
The hotel is adjacent to the Estoril race track , which on race weekends will produce considerable noise . For me this was no problem, on the contrary it was a very pleasant surprise since I love motorsports , but may disturb the peace of the golfer or traveler who goes to rest .

In short , a wonderful experience ,on the Ritz expected level.

Room Tip: If you dont like motorsport noise, choose a room on the wing located on the left side of the hotel.

What a great resort! 10 mins from Lisboa and 10 mins from Cascais.
Yet, you feel you are many miles away.
Great golf, and the food simply amazing!
The Japanese restaurant is incredible, especially on Saturday night when they have the buffet.
The gym is also top notch and so are the rooms, and pool facilities.
I truly wish all ritz Carlton properties had the same service, facilities and food selection as Penha Longa resort.

We spent a few days in Penha Longa Resort and it was a delight.
25 min drive from Lisbon and 15 min from the sea; the hotel is situated in the middle of a preserved nature. The room is spacious and beautifully decorated, the bed comfy, the bathroom well furnished with bathtub and shower. Everything is perfectly clean.
There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, four restaurants and a spa in an adjacent building.
Breakfast is just grand: a lot of choice and products of quality.
Staff is very very helpful and kind.

Room Tip: Be aware that tea and coffee available in the room are not free of charge.

Where do I start...25 horse stable, delicious breakfast, included in package, indoor pool. Wonderful resturants on location. Beautiful surroundings! Excellent staff. And that's just the beginning of all the wonderful things my husband and I enjoyed at this resort. All at a great value. Highly recommend this for a relaxing pampered vacation.
Thank you Penha Longa Resort "Ritz Carlton" for living up to and exceeding my expectations.

Have just finished a very relaxing stay at this fabulous hotel and am simply looking forward to the next trip. As previously mentioned in other reviews the service and attentiveness was outstanding throughout my stay, with particular mentions for Constanza in the bar, Pedro at the golf shop and Luis, Margarita and Marcello in the management team.
I am the sort of person that enjoys member of staff recognising me (when they work in different parts on different days), it really makes you feel like you're with friends.
There was one issue, when we arrived the hotel was overbooked and with any apologises they offered to out us up in another hotel for the first night. It was late (21:30) and they offered a nice meal in their Japanese restaurant (which was delicious) for free. The other hotel was nothing by comparison, so having to stay there aside, I had a fantastic experience and would heartily recommend it to anyone. Definitely coming back.

We have just enjoyed a 5 night stay in an executive suite at a Penha Longa. The hotel facilities are first class and we enjoyed walking around the beautiful grounds and swimming in indoor pool. We ate at all the restaurants and the surroundings and food were exceptional. There is something here for all age groups and golfers and non golfers. Every member of staff made us feel welcome, could not do enough for us and somehow always seemed to anticipate our needs.The hotel lives up to its 5 star rating in every respect. For those requiring a relaxed and special place to stay, we would recommend the resort.
