“A superb resort hotel”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We spent over a week here in May, and thought it was superb. It's a great position, on the cliffs, in a partially developed, quiet area of Lagos. Our room had a great view, looking out across the golf practice area to the sea. The room itself was large, well laid out, with a very comfortable bed, and an excellent balcony. Its only slightly eccentric feature was the lighting, with lots of unlabelled switches, some of which turned all the lights out. The hotel grounds are beautifully laid out, with a great pool, and another pool in the spa area. We didn't use the gym, which is in a partially developed complex across the way from the hotel.

The staff were of exceptionally high quality, always very polite and helpful. Breakfasts were excellent, with a huge amount of choice of high quality food. Our only disappointment was that the only restaurant open in the evening when we were there was Senses, the more up-market one: when we tried it, we felt that it didn't justify the prices, with over-elaborate food. Fortunately, there are plenty of good restaurants a few minutes drive away.

After almost a year of my first visit to Portugal I choosed to make a tour arround the Portuguese beaches, and my first stop was Cascade at Lagos.
It's a really nice place to go with the family, and to make good memories around the beach.
A staff very welcoming, with great detail for perfection.
The food of the restaurant Senses was demoniac (in a good way - a really good way), we an choose what restaurant we want, cause we have a lot of choices in only one place.
The kids club was a great help for us and our two kids. When we need a time for ourselfs, the rest of the hotels should think about it at the summer.
It was good to be next to the beach, and i can tell what a view, breathtaking. Being able to go to the beach just by walk its a great pleasure.
Me ad my family loved it, and we are thinking to come back next year.

Really friendly and helpfull staff from the moment we entered the hotel, to the moemnt we left.
Great room, great view & fabulous facilities throughout. Cant wait for the golf academy to get going, in full.
Good food in all venues with impeccable service throughout.
Large pool & sun lounger area, which meant you didnt feel crammed in with other people.
A relaxed and tranquil atmosphere everywhere...........even serene in the evenings.
Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms great.

What a beautiful resort - friendly staff, stunning rooms, a beautiful pool (and there are others to choose from) and a perfect location. I really can't recommended Cascade highly enough. The service was faultless with staff who were helpful and there when you need them but not intrusive. Food good with a wide variety at breakfast and choices of other restaurants for lunch and dinner - not cheap, but that's not a surprise in a resort of this calibre.

Room Tip: They are all stunning! The apartments have their own pool.

This resorts location is stunningly beautiful. Right on the Algarve cliffs with paradise like beaches. The service of the resort is perfect as well as very friendly. The place has a kind personality, one could say. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, with two bath rooms, which was perfect as we travel with our two teenage daughters. The pools are super fresh. Very good food at the restaurants. The staff, everywhere, did everything they could to make our stay a very relaxing and well remembered. I can highly recommend it for couples, friends or families!

Stayed here for two weeks and never tired of it. The resort is very new and built in a way that first conjured negative Disney/Vegas-like associations, but Cascade is not merely a luxury oasis in a tourist desert -- it's set in a spectacular place, right on the edge of the town of Lagos, which offers lots of great dining experiences without the worst of Algarve tourism.

The open and inviting pool area sits right on top of a cliff overlooking the limestone coast, and there's a beautiful secluded beach 5 mins below. Most impressively for such a large high-end resort is the personal feel the place has, largely thanks to its friendly and very helpful staff. All the important things are top-notch and too many to list: spacious rooms, comfortable beds, all-round very attentive service, and not least, a truly outstanding breakfast buffet. The hotel also offers shuttle or taxi service into town (5 mins), which makes the distance to the city center no issue. At $200+ per night, Cascade is actually amazing value for the quality of experience it offers.

The only major achilles heel of the resort was the wifi/internet connection, which is outdated and unreliable -- embarrassing for a place of this stature. (I have reason to believe the management will make some changes, it's clear we were not the only ones who had problems with this, and the current set-up is bound to cause lots more agony with guests.)

For a 'wellness resort', Cascade also has room for some improvement. The gym is just adequate, better than most hotel gyms, and there are several sports facilities, but little else here speaks to a healthy lifestyle (especially if you've traveled in places like California) -- e.g. there are no particularly healthy food or drink options on the menu, no post-gym recovery options, the minibar is stocked with fizzy sugar drinks, booze and chocolate (your standard hotel fare), and so on. 'Wellness and lifestyle' here means lying horizontal in the sun, and eating and drinking too much while being served. That was certainly okay with us for a fabulous holiday, but we'd be more likely to return more frequently if they offered more genuine 'wellness' options.

But it was impossible not to love our experience here, truly first-class and we will return.

Room Tip: Sea-view rooms are same layout as regular rooms, just facing the pool and evening sun. All regular r...
