Fairytale Hotel

Reviewed 3 november, 2021

This hotel seems like a fairytale to me! The pictures online do not do this place justice! From the staff to the rooms to the food, everything was beyond expectations! We only stayed for 1 night but wished we had more time in this place, we will definately be back!

Not 5 Stars

Reviewed 31 october, 2021

Our recent experience here was decidedly mixed. Yes, the location is nice, but isolated. He setting is beautiful. The welcome from the staff was excellent. The breakfast was very good. There were, however, issues. Housekeeping was poor. On our first night, the bed was full of sand. The toilet had issues. There are two restaurants on site. The Michelin one is not open every night, and we did not eat there. The other restaurant, where we did dine, had a very limited menu. We stayed at a couple of 5 star hotels on this trip. this hotel was nowhere near that standard, but they charge like it is. We we disappointed...

Could be better

Reviewed 29 october, 2021

Lovely historic hotel, exceptional staff, very comfortable room. Rather isolated on a windswept coast. The terrace was unusable due to strong winds. Our issue was that the Ironman competition was scheduled for the day of our departure, blocking the road and forcing our departure to 8 am rather than the noon departure as scheduled. The hotel surely had this information when we made our reservation, but we were not informed until the day before our departure. We could and would have scheduled a day earlier, or could have planned our day differently had they shared this information. We did not enjoy the Michelin starred restaurant. There are many better options for dinner in Cascais.

Such a beautiful hotel & location

Reviewed 24 october, 2021

We have stayed at the hotel several times but could only come for lunch at ‘The Spot’ this time unfortunately! The view is stunning and even just the tosta mista lunch was a huge portion and side salad was fresh and tasty. We felt it was great value and worth paying slightly more for the service and location. The cake of the day and coffees etc were delicious. We were married here many years ago but the staff still remember us and make us feel so welcome. This was the Relais and Chateaux ‘treatment’ yes to a point, but the staff, particularly Marta and Petra, are just lovely, genuine, welcoming people. When we return to stay we do so for the experience too and we are grateful for their time and efforts. The rest speaks for itself- wonderful clean, unique hotel with top class food & views. Don’t hesitate to visit!

A beautiful hotel that is getting on in years

Reviewed 20 september, 2021

The hotel is a former fortress located between two beaches on the Guincho beach. At daytime, the view is amazing but in the night it is limited, as there is little to see but the sea. The service is wonderful, very discrete yet present. The hotel was renovated about 20 years ago in a traditional style that is getting on in years in the meantime. We were expecting an old-fashioned experience, but it was a bit different than we thought.
