Spent a week here. The suite was spacious and the view of the sea was panoramic. Breakfast was substantial too. Several good restaurants nearby The pool could've been cleaned daily, rather than every other day to stop algae. However, it was nice and quiet for a sunbathe or swim. Close to Lisbon, Estoril etc. I'd suggest hiring a car as...

Stayed here with a soccer team for a cup we would play. Positive is the location, the best beach in the region is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. In ten minutes you go to the train station that quickly takes you to Estoril, Cascais and Lisbon. Behind the hotel are some restaurants and cafe as well as...

Hotel is a little bit old. Rooms need new carpets. Swimming pool horrible. I loved empty fridge in the room I really needed fridge. There work really nice people. In my opinion for this price it is fair what we have got there.

It was probably a good hotel 60 years ago but no maintenance seems to have been done. Carpet are a horror of stains, lamps falling of the walls, door handles and keys disgustingly greasy, windows never cleaned, room service...what's that? It took us 2 nights to get towels and when they came they were old and ragged. The only good...

The hotel is at the 'economy end' in terms of quality.Clean and tidy but pretty basic although there is AC in the rooms, a good size pool and the beach is a 10 minute walk. The breakfast is basic and not great. The restaurant is better in terms of a better menu, but the food is very average. Better restaurants...

Unfortunately I didn't check out this accommodation on TripAdvisor as I was in a rush. Now I have had time to read and look at photos I really regret not taking just a minute to check out this place. I will not call it a hotel as my son called room with a garden view was more like a prison...

The hotel location is beautiful as well the view. Just in front of the Atlantic. It s 300 Meters to the sea . ideal for surfers. Would not reccomend the hotel, the 4 stars are not real. Only 1 small lift working and could took about 15-20 minutes waiting yr. turn.

I came here with my boyfriend for his birthday and I thought I got a really good deal because it was a "four star hotel". The hotel shouldn't even get any star! No entertainment, the breakfast buffet was awful. The location is terrible, literally nothing to do. You have to get a metro into Lisbon city. The receptionist was lovely...

The only positive note is the excellent location. What a pity this 4star awarded hotel is just a shabby wreck. Very sad. The staff struggle to put on a smile and I don't blame them. The hotel needs total refurbishment and a progressive management/staff training programme. Unfortunately, we booked without looking at the reviews but never again. I am surprised...

Okay, like so many other reviews before mine this hotel is probably closer to a three star than a four. It's reminiscent of one of those really illustrious hotels that sit overlooking the ocean in Southend or Brighton, that had their day in the eighties when they were the places to be seen and were the height of luxurious accommodation....
