“Short break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We stayed a couple of days at this resort. It is located at the top of the cliff in the portuguese Silver Coast, with amazing sea views. It is a golf, beach and surf spot. Yes, the sea is rough almost every day.
The hotel buildings have the portuguese traditional architecture, with all Marriott standards. In our opinion, it is not a true 5 stars hotel, but a good 4 stars hotel. Our room was a typical Marriott room. Nevertheless, our bed didn’t have a Marriott mattress…
The outdoor swimming pool seemed great, but the water was very cold, not with the announced 24ºC. We didn’t try the health club and the indoor pool, but looked very good.
The breakfast buffet, included in our rate, was superb. The quality of the other meals was also very good, but overpriced. It was more expensive to eat here than in the Ritz-Carlton properties we stayed before.
Last words for the delivered service, which was top notched.
Overall, it was a very nice experience. We will be back soon to enjoy a few details that we haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy this time.

We used our Marriott reward points for a five night stay but on seeing the room rates we would not have paid €228 per night for this beautiful but remote place. As owners of two time share weeks in Mallorca we are entitled to a discounted rate for breakfast of €20 for a buffet. It is fine but very expensive. Yesterday we ,made the mistake of ordering two fresh lemon drinks by the pool which cost a staggering €17. They have a fabulous golf course close by, our room overlooked this, but at €62.50 per round & €6 for a pull trolley we thought it was over priced. Maybe other people shared this opinion as it was not that busy. However, the food in the clubhouse Restaurant (the Links) was good quality reasonably priced and served with a smile.

Room Tip: Chose a room either overlooking the golf course or the sea.

Great hotel, very well kept, with a stunning location in front of the ocean. Great facilities, restuarants, bars, spa, gymn, kids club etc. Service is near perfect. Great place for vacations, long weekends or just to chill out and surf! Fantastic.

Room Tip: ask for ocean front rooms

Very nice Marriott,however,you are a bit limited UNLESS you have a car.
Sadly the captive audience syndrome seems ingrained,inasmuch as the value
for money seems poor.
The golf course is great but expensive. If you want a buggy beware...almost
feels like you are buying it!!

That said,a great place for a short break.

The weather of course tends to be "mixed" so pack a range of outfits.

I stayed at this resort the last week in April with 3 other friends on a 'girls chill week' We didn't stay in the hotel, we stayed in the Beachfront apartments. On arrival we were given an upgrade to an awesome apartment on 3 levels with 3 bedrooms... We had three balconies all decked out with wicker loungers and chairs. The sea was literally just below our apartment. The outdoor pool wasn't in use when we arrived but the manager of the Beachfront quickly sorted the facility and we had exclusive use of it.... The resort was very quiet but the golf course appeared to be used extensively each day. This resort definitely needs the guests to have a car... as it is quite remote but stunningly beautiful. For us it was like Donegal Ireland with SUN!!! We shopped in the local towns of Obi dos and Peniche about 25 minutes away and cooked in our apartment as it had fabulous facilities. We dined one evening in the. Golf club, which was ok nothing overly special and quite expensive. This resort is an amazing spot... We had never been to Portugal before and we found the west coast to be unbelievably beautiful. iWe will return to this Silver coast to watch and listen to the white waves roll onto those clean and stunning beaches.

Room Tip: Get a sea view... Awesome ... Beachfront apartments are right on the beach in probably the best view...

Stayed at Marriott hotel on last day of holiday in resort. Hotel courteous and friendly. Lovely location to get away from reality but remote if no car. We had a villa in Praia D'el Rey for a week which offered more value for money than the hotel and space. Not sure why we had to pay 6 euros each to buy a swim cap before allowed to use the pool. Only to find out other wore the free shower cap!!! Petty money grabbing Marriott hotel...!!
Restraunt usual Marriott standard with amazing views of ocean.

Golfers paradise....

Must advise other travellers to go out of resort and explore local towns... Excellent restraunts in Peniche local cuisine and excellent value for money

Very good resort hotel, adjacent to the beach and to the golf course. Less than 1 hour drive North of Lisbon. Rooms are spacious and clean, with good facilities, excellent service, our room had great views to the sea. There are other rooms with golf views, and even a Presidential suite.
Excellent buffet breakfast, with one of the largest selection of food I have ever seen. Restaurants are a bit expensive, but then it is a 5* resort.
Nice indoor pool and jacuzzi, awesome exterior pool, but the beach is just over the fence. Calm and beautiful surroundings.
All in all a very good stay in a awesome hotel.
A car is necessary. Recommended visits are Óbidos and Peniche.
