The Lapa Palace is a stunning hotel, we picked this hotel for a special 4 day Birthday celebration and the whole experience and levels of service really did exceed our expectations.
We were delighted with the warm and friendly greetings given to us on our arrival. I must say a special thanks to Pedro who escorted us to our room and ensured we had everything we needed. Being shown how to operate the plasma TV and DVD that magically appeared at the bottom of the King Size bed was invaluble! The room had an Ipod dock which was really useful to charge my Iphone and play music - Excellent touch!
Although we were over awed by the high levels of service and attention to detail at Lapa Palace, we were always made to feel welcome and as important as any of the numerous VIP guests who have stayed at Lapa Palace - people like Bono, Cher, Sir Paul McCartney, Sting and oh yeah, George Bush!
Our room was stunning with a full marble bathroom,a luxuriously comfortable bed and fine linen's. The room is adorned with beautiful ceramics and tasteful decor. The housekeeping is of the highest standard and the attention to detail in all areas is impeccable. Rooms are turned down each evening and some lovely touches are applied including a nice card with a 4 day weather forecast and a superb pillow menu detailing the range of pillows available.
If you stay at Lapa Palace I would recommend you take the buffet breakfast. The selection of fresh fruits, juices, pastries, croissants, cerials, toast and Bircher Muesuli is awesome! After all that you can look forward to the hot breakfast which is fantastic and everything is cooked to perfection. This is the first time I have had a cooked breakfast and not wished to add any additional sauces or seasoning. Again the service in the breakfast room is faultless - Oh and 27 Euro's for a breakfast of this standard is a bargain !
All the staff we met were genuinely friendly and extremely helpful. Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble. I would particularly like to thank Phillipe Ricardo for helping us get to the nearest Harley-Davidson Dealer and find our way around Lisbon. I must also say a big thank you to Bruno for those very important Portuguese lessons he gave to Mr Hewson back in 2004 which helped make Vertigo such a perfect song! 1,2,3,14 ;-)
We have only been home for 4 days and we can't wait to go back - just need to get saving first!
Thanks again for helping us celebrate my wife's birthday in such style and we are looking forward to checking in again sometime soon!
