Stayed here recently for a corporate event. On first entering the hotel it looks impressive, as do the huge bedrooms. On closer inspection though, I changed my mind. The bedrooms have painted concrete floors (exactly the same as the outside) which is not a nice feel when you get out of bed. The beds were nice but the pillows were quite thick and gave me a bit of a neck ache! TV: I could only find one english channel which was Sky News and that was only available on the living room tv and not the bedroom tv. Bathroom: The sink didnt drain away and bath plug didnt work at all so I couldnt have a bath! Toilet: The options on the toilet (wash/dry/bidet etc) didnt work at all. Wifi worked perfectly. Food: Very average, not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Had some chicken with a huge piece of gristle in and some of the veg was a bit flavourless, however there was plenty of choice, breakfast was nice. At lunch I asked for some butter to go with my bread and was told in a stroppy manner 'we dont have butter here'!! Next morning at breakfast was piles of it so they DO have it!! The swimming pool was empty, although it would have been too cold for this time of year. The hotel is well out of the way, there is nowhere within walking distance but it does have a golf course.
Overall, this has potential to be a nice hotel, the rooms are huge with a lovely sea view, but please install some carpet! I really found it clinical and un-homely, I would never pay to stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room - much better

The spa is one of the nicest I've ever experienced.
The rooms are enormous, with plenty living space where you can spend time reading, getting ready or whatever takes your fancy. While from the outside, this hotel does look rather like a large office building, the benefit of this is the super spacious interior and rooms.
The food is delicious and although a bit pricey, is more competitive than other hotels of the same category.
We didn't get to enjoy any golfing whilst there but if you are into Golf, this is most definitely the place to be.
The location is quite isolated, and a car will be needed, however the benefit of this is that you are away from the hustle and bustle, with deserted (yet rocky and windy!) beaches near by. Perfectly located between Cascais and Sintra and a liesurely drive from Lisbon.

I stayed here for 6 days on business, the company had exclusive use of the hotel and we were mostly impressed. Visually it looks like a corporate HQ and inside its huge lobby and lounge areas are flooded with light. There are wonderful views of the sea and its set into a beautiful area of sand dunes.
The public areas are all open plan and this includes the bar and the restaurant so it wont appeal to everyone as it can lack atmosphere. The meeting rooms are very minimalistic and cold almost like mini warehouses.

However the bedrooms are excellent, great beds (poor pillows) and plenty of space, all with privates terraces. The glass cubicle shower rooms and en suite wont be appreciated by all.
The food is generally of a very high standard indeed but the service can be a little slow. Staff are very polite and pleasant.
