We know Cascais well and have always wanted to stay at The Albatroz. For a special birthday we decided to stay here for 5 days and it was everything we hoped for. The Albatroz has the best location for any hotel in Cascais. It is right by the sea (with no road in front - unlike Miragem etc), it is next to a couple of beaches and is a very easy walk to all the restaurants and shops in Cascais. Also the train station is only about 2 mins walk away if you want to get the train into Lisbon.
We booked seaview rooms, which are a must when at the Albatroz. For three of our nights we stayed in a deluxe room on the top floor. This room was incredible - massive bathroom, good sized and furnished bedroom and a lovely terrace with far reaching sea views. I loved the feel of the Albatroz. As a boutique hotel - the decor in each hotel rooms is individual and perfectly furnished. With free port is available in the rooms, and with a turn-down service in the evening, the room service is everything I would have expected for this standard of hotel. Nb There isnt coffee / tea facilities in the room - however this is quite common in Portugal. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet.
The dining room leads out to an outside dining terrace that overlooks the sea. This links to the sun terrace, which overlooks a small beach and has a lovely pool. The pool is quite small, however it was never crowded and was great to cool down! In addition we always could find available sun loungers, irrespective of the time of day we went to the pool - and there was always plenty of room to spread out. Sometimes the beach in front of the hotel can be quite busy, but we didnt find that the noise was a problem at all.
We found the staff at the Albatroz very helpful. We arranged in advance airport transfers, and at breakfast we wanted fried eggs (which they cooked for us straight away). The breakfast was great - lots of choice, however do ask if you want something that isnt there.
In summary both the location and luxury of this boutique hotel was amazing. We would definately return!
