This may be the best resort we have ever stayed at. The facilities are modern and luxurious. Set among the rolling hills of Sintra and close to so many World Heritage Sights. Day trips to all the castles, walled villages and even Lisbon are so easy. Then come home and use the gym, swim, play tennis or golf. Did I mention the Fabulous food?
Louis at the front desk anticipated our needs before we did. He was so friendly as well as professional - finding us guides, drivers and tickets to the sights. The price of the resort is probably the best bargain in Europe. Dreaming of the day we can return!

After looking around for places to have our wedding ceremony and reception we visited Penha Longa. I don't believe we had seen the half of it when our decision was already made. The ceremony and cocktail was held at Jardim do Núncio and the dinner party at Arola. Everyone, from the very first day was so nice, everything was beautifully organized and we all had the best fun. It was a complicated weekend as there was another wedding taking place, it was the final game of the Champions so the hotel was fully booked and the was a meeting organized by the European Central Bank the very next day. Despite all this and with a little help from the weather we had the perfect wedding. The service was excellent at Jardim do Núncio and Arola, the food was delicious and the staff was the nicest possible. At the hotel it was the same. Teh wedding night was included so upon arrival we had an enourmous and super confortable suite for us and everyone makes you feel like you are at home. Sometimes, in a big 5 star hotel, the staff is friendly but somewhat distant. Here, we were especially impressed with the friendlyness of the staff who always greeted us with their best smile. Thumbs up for the breakfast buffet! A special thanks to Rafaela Paiva and all her help to make our wedding day a day to remember.

Second visit to this property in a year. The property is undergoing renovations currently, but this is not a reason to delay a visit. Incredible location, service, and amenities. The issue with the musty smells have been resolved. The carpets in the rooms and furniture are beng revamped. Would like to see some art work in the rooms, but the views of the grounds are art in themselves. Ask for a golf course wing view.

The property is beautiful, but several of my guests commented that with some work it could be amazing! I think I would have to agree. This could have been the best President's Club we ever had, but it didn't quite get there. The staff is all very nice and they are working on updating the exterior. If you are thinking about bringing a group here, I wouldn't hesitate; just make sure that everything you need is spelled out explicitly. I know they can make magic happen because my awards night and it turned out to be one of the best events I have ever done but, I sat down with the staff three hours before it started and went over every minute! Visit the Penha Longa, it’s beautiful!

We stayed at the Penha Longo in April 2014. The location is very tranquil with beautiful green surroundings and many outdoor activities. On the property is a beautiful Monastery and Church, this is a must see. Just ask the staff for directions and a tour. There are many must see sightseeing experiences 5 - 30 minutes away. The Palace de Pena, Sintra National Palace and Sintra are 5-15 mins. Also, the seaside resort of Cascais is about 30 mins. The hotel staff is top notch. The rooms are a good size and offer a patio with wonderful views. We were in the main building #370 and liked the convenience of that. The bathroom is well decorated but can be a little tight in room. I would have liked a bigger closet or more storage space. The room service was also excellent. I would most definitely recommend this tranquil, beautiful hotel.

The moment you step into this property you feel the luxury of the resort - the gorgeous golf course and beautiful monastery add to the backdrop. The staff is top notch - loved our room! Great place to go for a business trip meeting as well as bringing the whole family - beautiful places to visit nearby as well.

This was a very nice place to stay, had all of the amenities and the staff aimed to please but I think a little over rated. The location is very remote you have to take a cab anywhere and the cost can get expensive at least 15 euros each way. The spa was even a bit remote, the walk was nice but a bit far if you just wanted to wear the robe. The restaurants were good but eating out and in town or in Cascais was a better value. Also, did not know that the country has to deal with African trade winds in May and let me tell you windy is not the word!! The wind came right through the sliding doors like a tornado had hit every night and all day. Sometimes it sounded like a blow horn. We were not the only people who had experienced this problem. So in closing I would say it is a nice place to stay but maybe pick another month. Rated sleep quality as average not because of the bed,(very nice) but the darn wind!!
