We arrived at this hotel after staying at the Pousada in Cascais. Given that the Pousada is a 4 star hotel, the comparison is startling. Plus points - the staff were pleasant and helpful and there is a lovely rooftop bar. Sadly the rest is downhill. Situation is not that great and very difficult if you have mobility issues. There is however a great restaurant - Pedro e o Lobo - across the road. My heart sank when I saw the room. Dark and claustrophobic even with the high ceilings. Horrid taupe/ beige paintwork that has not weathered well and fairly spartan shower room. See the photos attached. Bed had a plastic sheet on the mattress that was unpleasant to sleep on. We had to pay 2.50 euros each for a ghastly swim cap to use the shower and what a disappointment when we got down there. The pool didn't feel like it had been cleaned for some while and the paintwork on the wall had peeled off depositing paint chips on the floor of the pool. These had not been removed. I grasped the grab bar around one of the pool inlets and the whole thing came off the wall. There are also lots of small steps and as the hotel is so dark everywhere they were impossible to see. When I finally read the hotel welcome letter I was pretty appalled - see photo - a litany of things we should not be doing. We won't be back.
