Low-rise and sea-facing, the hotel makes the most of its stunning coastal location. With large picture windows in all the public areas framing views of the Atlantic, it creates the feeling that you’re on a non-moving ocean liner. The decor is smart and sophisticated without being overly memorable, although the Moorish-style courtyard entrance gives a passing nod to the country’s heritage. The superb links course is a golfer’s delight and is as challenging to play as it is spectacular to look at — think Scotland with sunshine.
Bed and Bath
Golf or Ocean View rooms all have floor-to-ceiling French windows and balconies to make the most of the vista. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and clutter-free, and the one-size-fits-all concept — neutral decor, pullout sofabed, work desk — makes them suitable for golfing pals and busy executives as well as vacationers.
The star attraction is the championship golf course. Set in an expanse of pine forests and undulating dunes, the links course overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and the Berlenga Islands. There’s a golf academy on-site, and the main putting green is one of the biggest in Europe. Active types who aren’t into golf have access to indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, football facilities and a spa and gym. The Atlantico Grill is the hotel’s casual all-day dining facility, offering a range of Portuguese and international cuisine. For dinner, Romy serves a modern Mediterranean menu, while bar options include the Cliffs Bar, the Ocean Lounge and the summer-only Sharx Pool Bar.
How to Get There
Outstanding , fantastic, ......
I can not say enough about this resort / hotel. The rooms, the view, the food. All top notch. The staff goes beyond to help. All speak multi languages. The location is perfect for touring Lisbon or local historic sites. The desk has help full guides for local tours. From knights templar castles to walled cities.
Worth the trip just to stay here . I will go back again.
I reserved a two day stay at this resort and was upgraded to a suite with sweeping views of the Atlantic. Had stayed here before with our kids which is why we made sure to return. The 2 days turned into seven due to unrest in Barcelona.
The staff, specifically, Audriga Martins and João Ventano, allowed us to stay in our suite and helped guide us to other destinations within Portugal
The resort is phenomenal from top to bottom. The views are tremendous and within 2 hours of anywhere you want to be in central Portugal. The bars upstairs and down are friendly and have a sense of humor which I appreciate. Especially Senhora Silva Vargas.
My wife and I shall return. Thank all at this resort.
Used this hotel as our base to explore the area. Great service with very good food. Front desk service by Jessica and Joao who help with our bags and directions. Also, Hugo as part of the food service team.
