“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Enjoying a beautiful location surrounded by pine forest and heathland, but with wonderful sea views, this is a very impressive 5 star hotel. The bedrooms are all suite size and have fantastic beds. Service at breakfast was good and the choice of food excellent. Our only small disappointment was in the pool side bar where service was slow and the food disappointing. Certainly worth a visit.

We stayed 4 days. No information provided when you arrive. All comments that I saw about we are expected are far away from my experience.
The level of service is not the level we should expect for the price. Room service always forgetting something, Wifi not working, noise in the night, ...
For the restaurant, if you have no chance to book, you will be served on the bar. Small place where you will enjoy noise and your small sample of food. 10 euros for one crepe suzette that is quite disturbing ! You are not eating in a three stars.
The only great thing is the breakfast and the golf.
There is a real need to improve the level of service to enjoy the stage that you could be terrific, if real customer care starts

Our stay at the hotel went perfectly!
Employers are qualified, efficient, smiling, perfectly bilingual in English and some of them don’t hesitate to try the French, it was very nice!
The services are perfect, the rooms are huge, the restaurants are delicious!
The site, in the middle of a golf, is really beautiful and quiet!
I will not hesitate to advise this hotel to my friends!

The place is a huge modern glass and cement building on top of a protected dune area. I felt kind of sad of seeing such a beautiful landscape being occupied by such a construction.

The Oitavos...you will hate it or love it :-) I loved it. The impressive glass structure makes the hotel unique. They have a lovely infitiny pool with nice views. The location is very peaceful, located at the Oitavos golfcourse, one of the best in Europe! The hotel is located between Cascais and Guincho beach, I really would recommend to hire a car! The region of Cascais has a lot to offer (Sintra, Lisbon, Caparica etc). The rooms are really awesome and extremely huge for standard rooms offering one of the best beds, a spacious sitting area, 2 huge LCD TV's, top notch media system, media hub, lovely (half open) bathroom etc. The balconies are also huge offering a nice view on the golfcourt. The breakfast was nice and correct and you can also order à la carte (pancakes, waffles, eggs). The indoor swimming pool with jacuzzi offers a nice view and offers a lot of daylight. Complimentary wifi. The value for money is EXCELLENT!

We have stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. Admitting that the first impression might remind you of an airport lobby, this feeling fades away the longer you stay around. The rooms are really spacious with a loft design including living area with huge flat screen. The dominant colors are blue including the floors. The breakfast has a wealthy variety of choices ranging from fresh fruits, cheeses & omelettes, bread & pasteries, as well as pancakes & waffles on request. The dining menu also offers a wide range of choice between fish, shell dishes and steaks. The staff is very friendly, however sometimes misunderstood the orders. Overall our stay was very pleasant, with a good mix of relaxing at the pools combined with small trips to Cascais, Sintra, and Lisboa.
Recommended evening walk through Lisboa old town ending with a small "Fado" dinner.

I had occasion to stay here last weekend for one night. Great service, gorgeous clean spacious rooms, great views - my balcony overlooking the golf course was also fantastic. The breakfast was delicious as was the dinner. I highly recommend!

Room Tip: My room overlooked the golf course - I would pick it again.
