What We Love

  • Close enough to Lisbon to combine the sea air and superb sporting facilities with the bright lights of the capital
  • The gorgeous spa, which is flooded with natural light and offers treatments using the excellent Voya seaweed products
  • Good for geeks: proper desks with USB sockets, fast Internet connection, iPod docks and more
  • Open-plan bathrooms allow you to soak in Aromatherapy Associate bubbles while taking in the sea view
  • Food, often heavy in Portugal, is here served with a light touch

What To Know

  • This hotel is big and feels it, with 142 rooms and 16 suites
  • The spa operates a strict no children under 16 policy
  • Those in search of a cozy armchair and a book might feel somewhat overwhelmed by the two large flat-screen TVs in the rooms
  • The hotel is within the Quinta da Marinha Original Estate and is consequently very self-contained; going out for a coffee or to see the local shops involves a drive

Spacious and modern but lacks service
Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel is spacious with modern decor. The bathroom is open and part of the room so not for people who like privacy. The service at the outdoor patio is way below acceptable standards. This hotel has so much room yet the bar is a tiny counter with no real room to sit as the counter is crammed with bottles and coolers. I am so confused why they did not create a beautiful outdoor space for nice evening dining. They asked for a tip at checkout. I have never seen that before.

Modern, clean, peacefull!! In the middle of nature¡

The Golf club is just beside de hotel aswell as horse riding club, tennis club and surf beaches.
The employees are great!
I think is the best hotel in Cascais and I can say I have already stayed in 4 more hotels around the area and with the same category.

Beautiful resort outside of the city of Cascais

We were in Cascais for a conference and stayed at Oitavos. Our rooms were spacious, the breakfast was outstanding, the peace & quiet of the place were welcome. Two down sides, esp. given that this is a five star property: #1. there was an extra charge per day for the indoor pool; #2. there were two coffee pods in the room on the first day but after that, each day there was a charge of €2 per day, per pod. These extra charges were silly ... and made the place feel cheap.

4 star not 5

I agree with previous reviews saying the hotel is quite sterile.

My main problem was with the fact that it has the modern habit of making the bathroom part of the room with zero privacy - without warning about this in their advertising. I’m of the generation where I don’t want to be seen (by anyone even my partner) sitting on the loo or having my shower (there is sand blasted glass to waist height, but this is only a nod to privacy).

The reception staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.

Space is the name of the game

Light, space, views .... all that and great, friendly service. We chose the hotel as we wanted to play the course. It was a good decision. The very spacious room - really a suite - was very modern and set up to meet all our needs. Great bed, wonderful shower, lots of storage, two TV's, a nice balcony .....
We ate dinner one evening at the hotel and were very happy with the choice. Service was attentive. The breakfast buffet was really fantastic, although ordering coffee did take a little effort.
