I have been here 3 times and still love it! Superbly situated as its walking distance to the Cascais town. The staff is extremely Friendly and the rooms are fantastic. Don't despair if you don't have a sea facing room, as the accommodation is sublime and any lack of sea view is quickly forgotten. The restaurant food is tasty and... More

Excellent hotel with excellent staff. No complaints after our 3rd visit. Great location for traveling further or walking. Close to town. Breakfast superb with everything you could want and will cook fresh if not in buffet. Spotlessly clean everywhere and staff only too happy to help with courtesy and professional attitude.
