Pousada de Cascais has a perfect location almost in the center of Cascais and at the waterfront. And approaching is marvelous – you literally go into an old fortress.
But inside the hotel is a disappointment. It is hard to find significant trace of any ancient background – only that it is a bothersome labyrinth to find your way around. A missed opportunity here.
The rooms has excellent standard, but the bathrooms can be very small for a 5 star hotel. But the worst: The view from the rooms is often just towards a wall or into a yard. Only 16 rooms have sea view – which then is fantastic. These rooms do have large, look-through bathrooms.
The central bar is in a big, not very charming hole. The location of the small restaurant, though, is nice – with perfect harbor/sea view.
The physical standard is great and the hotel service good.
- 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
