Just back for 4 nights at the Villa.
We found the place to be very good with polite and attentive staff. I would not consider it to be 5 star however, it would be more like 3.5 to 4 star on a European scale. I figure that the Portuguese star system is different from Ireland's.
The room was a basic room with Harbour view and priced at €224 per night including breakfast which was good value. Only criticisms were that the air con was a little noisy when started up and the taps make a bizarre screeching sound when running (you can hear other rooms taps screeching too!).
As a guest of the Villa you can use the Hotel Albatroz facilities which is a bonus as there is a nice Pool/sunning area, it is very picturesque and the lunch menu is good.
We tried the Hotel Albatroz resturant one night and found it very pricey for Portugal at €120 for 2. This is mad when you can have a fabulous fish meal in the town with wine, starters, mains, desserts etc. for about €50 for 2 including gratuity and I personally felt that the food was nicer!
Overall a nice experience and we will go back but will eat in town in future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Once an aristocratic residence of the 19th century, today a small luxury guesthouse with 11 luxurious rooms located on the Bay of Cascais, in the historical centre and next to the Fisherman's Beach.

This charming guesthouse offers elegant accommodation, with a mix of modern and vintage decor. VillaCascais features fine outdoor dining providing guests with stunning views of the bay and the village. The restaurant - Reserva by Olivier - has strong Portuguese influences, based on the best quality national ingredients.
