For the price we paid for a weeks accomodation and flights (£200 each) it was good value. The best thing was the location right on the beach which was excellent for us as we wanted to learn to surf. Theres a great little surf shop...More
We were there late September and NEVER again. The area was beautiful but the hotel was sadly lacking. Needs major renovation and upgrade. Very dank, dirty, miserable and without atmosphere. At times we were the only ones in the bar. Furniture musty, smelly and depressing....More
Dirty, dirty, unpleasent smell, very poor service, primitive breakfest. They are not even trying to clean the windows and rooms. Everything is like from terrible horror nightmare! Hotel is surrounded by the parking area for young surfers so all day long you have car and...More
Quirky and not for everyone but we loved this place. Liked the staff. Atmospheric. The enormous saltwater pool is fantastic. Of all the places we stayed in Portugal, this is where my teenagers want to return, I've promised them some surf lessons on the beach...More

Sorry ... only now saw the question. The place was clean for sure but it is coastal shabby in appearance ... meaning rust, weather beaten and generally not chic. It is clean. We enjoyed it. The location is 1st class. Fabulous beach. Restaurant food was more goodish home cooking than expected restaurant flair but again GOOD and no complaints. Set your expectations reasonably and and you will have a good time. Consider also that this location is NOT Cascais central and you will need to drive to town.
