“Best hotel in Cascais”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

My husband and I were visiting family and we decided to stay in a relaxing place after a week traveling in Europe. This hotel is just amazing. Great value, very polite and helpful staff, beautiful decoration and it is just about 7 mins walking to the little village. Best hotel in the area! We will definitely come back very soon.

I was very impressed by this boutique hotel in Cascais which was the former residence of the King of Italy while he was in exile in Portugal. Exceptional location, just far enough out of town to enjoy the beach, but an easy walk to the marina or town whenever you are so inclined. The spa was exceptional and it was much more refined than I would have expected at a seaside resort. The restaurant at the hotel was not as upscale as everything else, but the Faro Hotel directly across the street has two exceptional restuarant overlooking the sea.

Room Tip: They gave me an upgraded room (518) which was on the top floor with a direct sea view. exceptional!

Built around the villa once occupied in exile by Humberto II, the last king of Italy, this hotel combines a friendly and attentive staff with excellent location and a most creative and luxurious
physical facility. It's not cheap, but well worth the cost for an unforgetable experience. Food in hotel is very good, but many fine restaurants are nearby. Portugal is one of Europe's more economical countries, offering excellent seafood and a varity of wines, including port, the source of national pride.

Room Tip: Always ask for view of the ocean.

I attended a major conference at this hotel in mid-October. The hotel was simply perfect. The room was large with nice beds and a very nice moderne bathroom having a tub as well as a shower. The room was very nicely equipped with modern flatscreen HD TV, complementary WiFi and a safe. The only minor issue was the absence of a coffee machine in the room.
The hotel is very well situated in the village of Cascais due west of Lisbon. The village itself is very nice with good restaurants. The famous casino in Estoril is within easy reach just a few miles from the hotel. Connections to Lisbon are good with a nice coastal railway taking you into the center of Lisbon. This method of transportation is recommended as you may want to avoid driving yourself due to the local traffic being a challenge even to skilled drivers.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor facing the sea are excellent

We stayed here for three nights to attend a wedding. From arrival to departure the service was excellent, valet parking was very useful (seeing as the steering wheel was on the wrong side for us!) and check-in was great. A member of hotel staff walked with us to our room which was a nice touch. The breakfasts were really good with a wide selection of choices. There is even champagne if you want to start the day with some fizz. We didn't eat in the restaurant but the bar menu was very good with some excellent tapas. We were able to borrow an adaptor free of charge as ours broke on day one and overall you felt the staff really wanted to help.

we stayed in this hotel at the beginning of August as part of our two centre family holiday (4 nights in cascais and 5 nights in lisbon city). this is a top class hotel. Our Junior suite was very spacious and our daughter was in the ajoining lounge with a pull out beds. room was very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful and catered for all our needs and more! Staff were wonderful at this hotel. Pool was lovely, if however chilly, our children found it very cold. but once you were in and used to it, it was fine.
Hotel is in a wonderful location, just a short 5-10 mins walk to centre of cascais. Cascais is truly beautiful, lovely streets and fabulous beaches.
would we stay at this hotel again : YES
was it value for money: YES, we booked well ahead of our visit and got a good offer.

Sincere thank to all staff in Grande Real Villa Italia for helping make our stay with you truly unforgettable. Our daughter got a temperature during night one night, and staff arranged for my husband to go in a taxi to a pharmacy that was open, nothin was too much trouble. The accommodation staff were wonderful too.

Looking forward to returning again.
