How to Get There
If you want to visit Lisbon but don't want to stay in the city, then Cascais is the perfect place. 40 minutes on the train to the city and also close to Sintra. Plus Cascais has so much to offer itself: beautiful beaches, great restaurants and sites to see.
We stayed in the autumn half term. The weather was foggy and rainy, but it was warm and we still had a wonderful time and can't wait to revisit.
The Farol is an okay hotel. We chose a sea view room, and the views are perfect - looking right over the rocks and sea, you can lie in bed and listen to the waves. The pool closed the day we arrived, which was a surprise, as the website hadn't mentioned this when we booked and it was one of the reasons we had chosen this hotel.
Positives: Fantastic comfy bed and powerful, hot shower; nice products; lots of choice for breakfast; friendly staff: they booked taxis for us to Sintra. The pool area (although closed) was lovely - it will be sensational in the summer months.
Negatives: The bar and the restaurant are very, very expensive. The mini bar charges were silly and there was also a 1 x Euro charge per coffee in your room - a bit unnecessary when you are paying 'Boutique' rates. The food in The Mix and Sushi restaurant was terrific, but we really couldn't afford to eat there every night.
The Farol is in a prime location, I imagine that perhaps it was just not the place for us.
Lovely boutique hotel with beautiful views of the sea. Lovely friendly welcome by staff upon arrival. Always willing to help with any queries. Very good food, however breakfast choice very limited and food tended to run out rather quickly and staff sometimes slow to replace. Had to ask a few times to replace! Also our room was very very small. Space very limited so I never unpacked my bag. Bathroom space also very limited. We used the bidet to put our toiletries as there was simply not enough room to put anywhere else. Also ran out of toilet paper which wasn’t replaced so had to ask for it. I would still be happy to recommend this hotel as location is within walking distance of Cascais. However if booking I would advise to request room with sea view as they appear to be bigger. Also much nicer views. Overall though a very pleasant stay.
We decided to go here for lunch after seeing that the Hotel were advertising a €35 per person lunch deal which included 3 courses a glass of wine and coffee.
We arrived and were shown to our table and handled an a la carte menu and no drinks menu, we had to ask about the lunch offer and was told there was a set courses and no menu, we had a cheese and strawberry salad , sea bass, and chocolate mousse.
Everything was good but not brilliant, the surroundings though were beautiful, I think they could do with promoting the offer and expanding the menu as the restaurant was pretty quiet.
