The hotel is very nice with modern, spacious room and great breakfast. The ocean view from our third floor room was awesome and the staff were friendly. The outdoor swimming pool was big and quiet although I found the indoor pool and sauna got little too crowded for my comfort. The thing I did not like was the time it...

This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. The room was modern, very comfortable and had a terrace with a view of the pool area and the ocean. The service was excellent. Our check-in included a tour of the old restored section including the chapel which has been integrated into the hotel. The included breakfast buffet was fantastic.

Arrived late - check in, no problems. Quick taxi ride from the airport. Staff took time, even though it was late, to show us some of the hotel facilities. Indoor pool was lovely, with a relaxing sauna and steam room. Fresh towels, immaculate grounds...paradise. Outdoor pool is wonderful, and you can see the ocean peeking through the palm trees. The...

My husband and I visited here for a week and had a great relaxing time. It's peaceful, and luxurious, right on the coast and the staff are very attentive and look after you. Part of the building is a renovated 15th Century palace and has real character. We told them it was our 25th wedding anniversary and they left some...

Made to feel very welcome and perfect for young family. The actual village is a little quiet and the nearby beach is small but you're only short train trips to Lisbon and Cascais. We also went to Sintra which is worth a trip. Lisbon hasn't many great landmarks as such but it's still nice for a wander. Teenagers would probably...

Outdoor pool is a a main "meeting point: for almost all visitors. Location is also good - almost half way from Lisbon to Cascais. One can access both destinations easily...

We spent five lovely days here. Great rooms that were super quiet dispite the coastal road which is quite close. The breakfast was excellent and there are great restaurants close by if you get tired of the hotel food. Can't wait to come back. Also the train station is very close to go to Lisbon.

The building is great with its' mixture of ancient and modern. The room was lovely and big with all mod cons and a lovely balcony. The decor however was oppressive with too much dark brown and an absence of any real colour. The staff were all helpful and attentive. The downside was finding anyone to serve in the bar during...

The aim was to have a relaxed, calm break and we got that from the wonderful country, hotel, food and weather! The hotel is close enough to Lisbon (20 minutes by train which was roughly €3 return) but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful surroundings! The staff were wonderful and could not do enough to accommodate all our needs....

Lovely hotel between central Lisbon and Cascais beach. Close to the train station so easy access and taxi only 12-15 euros to go central. The hotel is a good mix between modern (high standing) and traditional. All the staff was lovely and very helpful. The swimming pool area was great. The breakfast delicious. The only down point is the long...
