Whenever we go away (whether for a full blown month-long holiday or one night away), my hubby usually spends weeks (months, in some cases) researching the many different hotels in order to find some real gems and offers. This was no exception. He booked us, and our two friends, into the Farol Design Hotel located right on the Cascais seafront... More

It is next to the yacht club and a short walk from the centre of Cascais, a very quaint town... More

Others have spoken about the location of this hotel and indeed, nothing can be more magical than enjoying a top-notch meal/breakfast in the hotel restaurant and watching waves crash against the rocks, or lounging on one of the exceptionally comfortable sunbeds that give you the impression of being on the deck of a cruise liner looking out at the ocean....

After 5 separate visits to Portugal I thought I knew all its gems and pearls in accommodation and great places to eat in Estoril. Seems I didn't!

As a previous visitor to the area, this is a perfect position to enjoy Cascais. The hotel is well managed and has a genuine boutique atmosphere with interesting edgy design features. Breakfasts are good with a wonderful view out to sea and across the well designed pool area. A slightly larger pool would be beneficial for those swimming for exercise.... More

Wonderfull location, will stay in the memory. The bar service was great, they even had a two for one between 6pm and 7pm.That plus the views of the Atlantic as the setting sun bounced of the waves was worth the visit. The meal in the restaurant was great and the staff first class.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Planted on the edge of the rocks that rise out of the ocean, Farol Hotel is set in a mansion dating back to 1890, formerly owned by the Count of Cabral. In 2002 an extension was built, creating a superb innovative interface between the 19th century original building and the daring new contemporary structure extending over the rocks and offering superb views of the Atlantic and most picturesque sunsets.Unique in concept, the designer rooms originated from an invitation to select top Portuguese fashion designers to “dress a room”. ... more   less
