I travel for work all the time, so I have very high expectations when staying at a hotel on vacation. The service at this hotel is the best I have experienced in a long time. Staff is friendly and eager to please. The rooms are very clean, and they keep it that way throughout the day. You do need to...

This is really my kind of hotel. Luxury, good food and fantastic sea views and an easy walk into Cascais village made me sad to leave this hotel. 4 nights was just not enough. My room was huge, well appointed, light, airy and spotlessly clean. I could say the same for the bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and the...

This is an exceptional hotel and spa. Beautiful large room, you feel like you are staying in a large apt. Food is great, breakfast is like a brunch. Very quite and at walking distance to main square in Cascais. However, if you are a beach goer you may not like the location of this hotel. There is no access to...

This hotel is located by the sea and has marvelous outside views to the ocean. You can just get outside and use the bicycle and running lane to feel energized. The hotel has superb conditions and the comfort is present all over the hotel. Beautiful ceilings, plenty of light which is enhanced by the use of marble on the floors....

The sea from the endless bed is something unique, especially when you are in Guincho-Cascais, one of the best spots in Portugal. The spa is like a secret even underground but with day light... Amazing design all over the hotel and huge rooms that make you feel at home.

Luxurious hotel but with a homely feeling, lush mature gardens surround the pool and great views over the Atlantic (especially from the rooms in the Villa d'Este part of the property). The spa looked great though I didn't have time to try it. The restaurant food was very good and the service excellent. They have large meeting rooms/ballrooms with daylight...
