“Clean and the staff were really so helpful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2011

We happened upon this hotel as we ran into problems with accomodation that we had booked in the area, we were a party of 12 and were stuck last minute for somewhere to stay. The staff were so helpful, they had availability the following night and rang their sister hotel in Praia Maca's and got us 3 apts for the first night and we stayed in Quinta da Viga the following night.
The rooms are very clean and plenty of room, lovely ocen views and a lovely pool. You can walk along the coast to Praia Da Maca's which is short but you have to paddle across a stream so dont go dressed up! In Praia da Maca's there are some fab seafood restaurants and very good value.
I would highly reccomend Quinta Da Viga, service for breakfast is a bit slow but the staff are so nice that as long as you are not in a rush its fine.

Room Tip: The rooms at pool level were probably bigger, but I think they were two bedroomed

Could use some paint outdoors, mainhouse looks untouched since 70's but apts are simple & clean and reasonably equiped ( coffeemaker, waterboiler, small stove, microwave). fresh towels everyday. apts with seaview really give you a great view of the ocean. Gardenapts give you a lawn in front with a wall view :) staff is really nice & friendly. 200mtrs from beach. BIG waves, so kids must know how to swim.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2006

We had an apartment for two people and it had plenty of room and it could actually sleep three more people. The lady that we dealt with when booking in did not speak english but we managed to communicate through pointing and gestures etc. The photos on the brochures look very flash but in reality the villa is looking quite neglected. I thought this was a real shame as it is a great location and was obviously built to a high standard. The only problem we had was the shower - it was a hose shower and the bracket on the wall was broken so you had to hold the shower head in your hand. Although the location is great keep in mind that it is well outside of Sintra and so a car is best. There was a tram but we couldn't work out if it went into Sintra and it also looked painfully slow.
I think I would return here as the price suited our budget and although the place was neglected we didn't experience any major problems because of it.

  • Liked — the size of the apartments
  • Disliked — neglected
