From the manager to the chamber maid there is always a cheery welcome and time to chat. They provide top rate service with a genuine desire for you have the best stay possible. The setting is stunning inside the castle. It is true that many of the rooms have no view, but if you want a view then, in common with other hotels, pay for it and you will not be disappointed. We had a room with balcony (part of then old battlements) and sea view. The rooms are simply furnished, comfortable, but not too modern for an oldie likemyself. We were unfortunate about the weather, but it did not stop the enjoyment. The main restaurant is basically tapas style, but with an very able chef. It is just as easy to make the menu into a very good three course meal. There are daily suggestions so that you do not become bored.
The hotel also has a small indoor pool alongside the breakfast restaurant, which doubles as the pool bar during the day. There is also a sun deck fo those who do not wish to venture far, but that would be a mistake, as it is only ten minutes walk to the train station where cheap frequent trains run to Lisbon. The nearest beach is only a few minutes away too.
My wife and I have tried other hotels in the area and will certainly not be returning to them after going here. The week just slipped away with real pleasure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This luxury hotel, Pestana Cidadela Cascais, is set within the walls of the historical fortress, the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais, in the centre of Cascais. It is a place where ancient meets modern, and many of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks which makes each space a different experience, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the huge internal patio spaces. ... more less
