Gorgeous location with stunning views of the ocean and cliffs as well as the massive swimming pool from the room and the restaurant. Comfortable room, very spacious and well appointed.

The hotel does sit right at the ocean and there is an extensive beach adjacent to the property. The huge pool is salt water and very nice although chilly in September but that has been typical of the water. The staff were very nice and we did receive our complimentary bottle of wine for our Hotels status. They have a wonderful breakfast also.

Excellent view, perfect location if you enjoy beach and pool. Great service. The staff was welcoming and helpful. 30 minutes drive from the main attractions in Sintra and Cascais. It has a bus stop and a Hop on Hop off bus service at the door. Great value for a 3-star hotel.

8/10 Very good

The property was amazing, the staff really nice and helpful . The only down point is we had dinner at the restaurant , we paid cash for our meal, and when we checked out, they charged us for our dinner that we had paid cash. The reception said he would get back to us, but I didn't like that. Also since it's very taxi don't want to come to take us to the airport. Thank goodness the same guy at reception helped us, he was very nice.
