My husband and I stayed at this interesting hotel in April. It is perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the sea. We had a lovely view of the coastline and beach from our room. Looking down, we could see a flat roof and parking, but the rest of the view was worth it. Our room was very clean and comfortable....

The hotel is one of a kind both by its location on the top rated guincho beach and by the 1star michellin's guide restaurant that it hosts. Staying in a standard room with partial sea view and a bubble tub in the bathroom. We ate at the restaurant of miguel (1star) and that was a fabulous !

My husband's brithday dinner at Fortaleza do Guincho was the best birthday experience in recent memory.

Stayed here for the 3rd time. Must say I'm not sure I'd go back. Staff were friendly and very helpful but the rooms need a facelift. Looks a bit old and outdated. Location is stunning and the restaurant faultless and staff are great but for the price of a room per night, other hotels closer to the centre of cascais...
