We were met courteously at Reception and shown to our suite, which had wonderful views of the ocean - on two sides. There was an enclosed balcony with a chaise longue and windows which opened wide, in addition to the main windows. The bed was huge (large enough for four) and very comfortable, so a good sleep was ensured, especially with the constant sound of the surf as a background. I didn't like the small spa bath, but everything else was fine and service excellent - daily deliveries of fruit, port and individually-boxed truffles were a nice touch.
Breakfast was taken in the restaurant, where the staff cruised around in the manner of Jeeves. It was a help-yourself buffet and fine to give a start to the day. Dinner was different and for serious foodies. There was the same unobtrusive service - and a master sommelier showing his skills - but the food was far from casual. This was serious sourcing, cooking and presentation and the whole experience was a delight.
P.S. If you like minimalist design and expect a pool and sun loungers don't go to the Fortaleza do Guincho - even a cursory search of the hotel website reveals that is not its style.More
