“been more than once, will go again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

I have stayed at this hotel a few times now. OK, its not 4 star and its a bit out of the centre. But its staff are always friendly and courteous, the food is of a good standard. They have a shuttle bus running to and from the centre and if you feel like it there is a nice walk along the promenade into town.

I like to drag my sunbed away from the pool to have some peace and quiet to read my book and they have a large lawned area that allows you to do this.

All in all, this is a hotel were you will get value for money.

We stayed at the Pestana Cascais Ocean and Conference Aparthotel for eleven days B/B at the beginning of October 2011. Took taxi from Lisbon Airport to hotel and return. We asked for high floor and were allocated Room 608 with side sea view and sun on balcony until 1.30 p.m. Room large with plenty storage but kitchenette, etc needed refurbishing, also TV very old and needed to be re-tuned to get the limited English channels. Safe in room available to rent. Room cleaned every day with sheets changed every two days and towels daily. Large indoor and outdoor pools and lovely gardens overlooking main road and sea. Buffet breakfast was adequate. Hotel staff helpful when needed. Courtesy shuttle bus with very nice friendly driver runs from hotel into centre of Cascais and return. From October onwards mini-bus only available Mon - Fri. Very nice baker/cafe and supermarket across road from hotel. Lovely coastal walk from Pestana Aparthotel into Cascais, which is an excellent small resort with marina, small harbour and lots of shops and places to eat. There is a beautiful promenade stretching along to Estoril. Weather was exceptional for October, over 30 degrees every day. Train runs regularly from Cascais to Lisbon. May return to Pestana Aparthotel some time in the future.

This hotel was ok.
You have to pay €28 for internet access for the week.
You have to pay (can't remember how much) for the room's safe.
Non-sea view is fine if you're going to get out and about - which you should.
Breakfast was a buffet - cereals, fruit, bread, scrambled egg, ham, cheese, sausages(yuk), rashers( yuk), madiera cake (yum), T, coffee etc.
Room has cooker hobs & you can boil water etc - no kettle though!
Clean hotel, helpful staff, located a bit outside Cascais but had a free hotel mini-bus leaving on the hour ( mon-fri) dropping at train station & from there back at 20 past the hour up to 6pm.
Free ( local council) bike " rental" is available (single gear old crocks) just down at the coast nearby. NB - there have nothing to do with the hotel.
The "gym" ( health centre) is just there to pretend to have something - there is nothing of use there - don't plan to use it - no weights at all!
Taxi from town centre (for 2 people) is cheaper than local bus, but not from hotel.
Walkers would like the walk.
Bikers can have a fine cycle westward along the coast to nice beaches - great views & waves - the few food places there were shut at this time of the year.
Very nice coffee shop across the road and supermarket too.

Room Tip: Get out of the hotel after breakfast and see the region.

We stayed at the hotel for a long weekend. It's a five minute 4 Euro taxi to the centre of Cascais, the same to Oitavos dune and Quinta de marina golf courses. A good pool and garden, tennis courts and reasonable breakfast made it ideal for our purposes. The room had two beds, a sofa and a small kitchenette and was ok. Overall the hotel is a typical tourist 3 - 4 star establishment, but nearer to 3.

Room Tip: Choose a pool view room for views and evening sun

We stayed at Pestana Cascais Hotel from Sept. 19 th to Oct. 3 rd. Room number 425.
Why were we disillusioned? The shuttlebus was during several days not available since it broke down. Afterwards we were also informed that the shuttlebus service was not operating on Saturdays and Sundays from Oct. 1 st onwards. A walk to the centre of Cascais takes about three quarters of an hour!
When we first entered our room on Sept. 19 th we noticed that the air conditioning did not work. We informed the reception desk and it took two days to have it repaired.
As most people know, Portuguese food feeds a man but is not palatable.
Wifi is very expensive indeed. So is the safe box: 21 € for a fortnight.
A positive point is the friendliness of the staff .

Room Tip: Choose a room with sea sight and an air conditioning that works.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Pestana. The staff couldn't do enough for you and it had all the facilities I wanted: outdoor pool which swam in every day and an indoor pool whic was warmer and gym facilities. The food was excellent with several choices each evening. I loved the fish. Situated just out of town was good for me with a courtesy bus every hour to and from Cascais. It was also a lovely walk along by the sea to the town. Stop half way for a very cheap beer. We hired a bicycle for free and cycled part way to Guincho Beach along a dedicated cycle path. Within easy reach by train to Lisbon and Sintra both well worth visiting.

Room Tip: As a single person had a lovely double room at no extra cost having travelled with Saga.

We stayed in June 2011 and I had booked the room direct and got one with a great sea view.

I notice some people are saying that it does not match the 'Stars' rating, so I think a little explanation on 'Stars' is appropriate at this time.

I have been lucky enough during my 45 years working life to have stayed in hotels throughout Europe, the Far East, America and actually lived in Hong Kong, so hotels and Star Rating Internationally, I know well. Star ratings on hotels are 'Country Ratings' on Stars. We have 4 Star hotels in the UK that I would struggle to offer them 2 Stars.

Stars are country ratings, as there is no international 'Stars' rating.

Also, for we folk using Pounds Sterling and countries tied to the Euro (really an old German DM currency with a new name-The Euro!), then their price can look high relative to their ratings and Stars and the prices just 5 years ago.

For around £110 a night, with breakfast for 2, with a sea view (forgetting the Star Rating), it is value for money in Portugal with the current Euro exchange rates. Yes, a 4 Star Hotel in Portugal is going to be nowhere near a 4/5 Star in some Far East countries, so do your research and be realistic or go to Thailand, Bali, Malaysia or Singapore. You will get 4/5 Stars, but you will pay for it.

We found the staff helpful, but of course less staff than 40 years ago when we first went to Portugal and when many of the 4 Star hotels were new. Hotels are struggling with massive increase in running costs, electricty, gas, staff and high VAT and so they cannot refurbish to 'New' every few years.

4 Star I would agree is 1 Star too many, based on Far East hotels, but still a nice hotel, nice staff and a wonderful location.

Would i stay there again, yes.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view, don't get a room overlooking the car park...............but if you are...
