“Super service, excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We spent a romantic week at Real Villa, the experience was above expectations. From the moment of arrival, the staff takes excellent care of its guests. We had an upgrade (even if booking via booking.com), and a super spacious suite. The food at breakfast was good, service and food at the pool (the pool is really nice by the way!) very good, wine selection excellent. Also important, the hotel is located a short walk away from Cascais town and the harbour. Lastly, the hotel booked a round of golf for us at Quinta da Marinha, which was billed to the room, which I found very helpful. My husband had only one remark, he found the massage therapist not good enough. Besides from that, we were sad to leave!

This hotel is amazing! The rooms are simply gorgeous! Almost everything you could imagine is in the room, including buttons by your bed to open and shut the curtains. The pool is big and nice for children. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. It is located a short walk from the center of Cascais, a wonderful resort town on the Atlantic Ocean just 1/2 hour from Lisbon, Portugal.

We stayed five nights. The hotel itself is very clean and well decorated. Everything was sparking clean and thoughtful. The staff was exceptional and went out of their way to ensure our comfort. The hotel itself is lovely with much thought put into every detail, but the staff makes the Villa Italia stand above the rest. We plan to stay here when ever we visit Cascais. Fantastic stay and definitely recommended.

I traveled here with family last year to a wedding at the end of the Summer.
The Hotel staff were very friendly from arrival and helped us check in quickly.
The hotel itself is beautiful fully deserving its 5 star status.
The pool area was lovely. It also had a nice little gym that was quiet which i preferred.
I was a little disappointed hotel guests hadn't complimentary access to the indoor fresh seawater pool. Aside from this everything else was perfect.
Cascais itself was also a great little town that I had never heard of before but it was alive that weekend with music festivals and some great little pubs.

Room Tip: Try and get a bedroom overlooking the Swimming pool and sea.

Beautiful hotel 5 stars all the way. Our room was huge and luxorious, beautifully decorated. The pool area was clean with lots of sunbeds. Staff where always friendly and very helpful. Food and drink where very expensive but expected of a 5 star hotel. Service was a bit slow not enough staff at lunch time. Lunch on the last day was a big let down, food took over an hour and a half to arrive and was freezing cold and cooked badly.
But we had a fabulous holiday made extra special by the hotel. just 5 minutes walk from the amazing old town and the new marina.
A big thank you to PEDRO who could not do enough for us he is a wonderful representative of the hotel and i hope he will be recogonised for his outstanding service.
Will be returning next year with out hesitation.

Stayed three days at the Real Villa Italia as part of a work conference, found the entire hotel to be of a very high standard. Excellent service throughout the visit from all members of staff. Food was of a high standard as well with plenty to choose from. My room on the third floor had a smaller balcony than many others but it still had room for a small table and two chairs, it also had a nice view of the pool and out to sea.
Overall an impressive hotel. Recommend.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms with a sea view are good.
