This is an interesting hotel set within the fortress walls. We received an excellent welcome on our arrival. Our room which was very comfortable and had a large balcony overlooking the marina. The staff were at all times courteous during our 14 day stay and even managed some good humoured banter during the European Cup matches which were discreetly screened in the dining area. The breakfasts were excellent, as were the meals we had in the evening.
The only problem we found was with the gym which is quite small. Despite air conditioning it becomes very hot during the afternoon and early evening when in full sun.
We did have a car and this was parked for us at the end of each day and delivered promptly when requested in the morning. This car parking is expensive but we were aware of this when we booked.
Cascais is a lovely resort with excellent restaurants and designer shops. It is worth taking the train to Lisbon as this is a very easy method of accessing the capital.
