Traveling with three teenagers, being a single mother, is probably not the most relaxing vacation. And yet, the staff at the Lapa Palace created an environment that left us all with incredible memories. We had much laughter on this trip. The moment of arrival is key. First impressions count. We arrived to the warm smile of the marvelous doorman. And, Rita and Hugo and Hugh at the front desk immediately drew us in. Portuguese history and charm enveloped us. We were shown to our beautiful accomodations. The view from the balcony took our breath away. I would describe the furnishings as very French with wonderful color schemes. The rooms are spacious and attention to every detail is taken. The pool is wonderful. I travel frequently and we are very fortunate to have stayed in many five star hotels throughout the world. The Lapa Palace is a gem. I almost do not want to say how much I adore this hotel because I would like to keep this secret. The warmth of the entire staff, the beauty of the hotel, the attention to detail while respecting history, the feeling of total security, the knowledgeable answers from staff consistently and the constant overall effort to please warmed all our hearts. I believe this was our most favorite family vacation ever. We will return over and over. PS Go to the bar at night and listen to the piano player = the music will transform you. And, if you love to sail, rent the Harfang. PT with Alex at the helm - a totally unique and wonderful way to see Lisbon and beyond with teens. I admit it - I'm a spoiled traveler. However, of all the hotels I've stayed in, the Lapa Palace is my favorite. Truly, everything was perfect. We were embraced by the heart and soul of Portugal here.
