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

The Review

With a stay at The Oitavos in Cascais (Cascais Coast), you’ll be minutes from Oitavos Fort and close to Guincho Beach. This 5-star hotel is within close proximity of Boca do Inferno and Paula Rego Historical House.

Make yourself at home in one of the 142 individually decorated guestrooms, featuring iPod docking stations and minibars. Rooms have private balconies. Wired and wireless Internet access is complimentary, while 37-inch LCD televisions with satellite programming provide entertainment. Partially open bathrooms with separate bathtubs and showers feature rainfall showerheads and designer toiletries.

Pamper yourself with a visit to the spa, which offers massages, body treatments, and facials. While the golfer in the family is out on the course, you can enjoy above-par recreational amenities such as outdoor tennis courts and a health club. Additional amenities at this Art Deco hotel include complimentary wireless Internet access, concierge services, and babysitting/childcare (surcharge).

Grab a bite at one of the hotel’s 3 restaurants, or stay in and take advantage of 24-hour room service. Relax with your favorite drink at a bar/lounge or a poolside bar.

Featured amenities include complimentary high-speed (wired) Internet access, a 24-hour business center, and express check-in.

Great Property BUT......
Dayo M

Great property, good service, moderate location in Cascais, It is about a 10-15 mins taxi drive to the center of Cascais 5 Euros/ $7 to 9 Euros/ $10 Uber ride. Great golf course, exceptional staff and service, and good breakfast option. The only pitfall is that guests have to pay a 30 euro/ $35 fine for bringing in food or ordering uber eats to the hotel, for a 5 star property, this is the first time I am seeing this considering the fact that this is not disclosed on the policy of the hotel on the website or on 3rd party websites as part of its policy. Guests have to sign a waiver for this upon arrival, in my opinion, this is very bad all hotel policy should be made clear and there should be no shock and awe policy disclosure upon arrival.

I get the strategy here which is to force guests to order food from the hotel BUT this should be declared as part of its policy to guests before they arrive.

The Japanese restaurant in the hotel was not open when we stayed at the property this further limits the food options you have to just 1 restaurant on site.

Apart from the above everything else is fine as per service.

Golf trip

In a super location but very underwhelming and lacks inspiration.The hotel is slow service, no atmosphere and very overpriced. The golf club has dreadful service. The bar or café area doesn’t open until 11 o’clock and offers no substitute. Alarmingly, the golf buggy charge is €58Per round of golf. Ridiculously priced. Whilst it has many things going for it, it is a place I will not return as there are far better places in Europe.

Mixed feelings

This hotel located outside of city center in Cascais. This is a golf resort, you can see the beautiful nature from your terrace. The hotel is a very huge building, every hall / room is enourmus in it. Our room was very big as well, which was OK, but the interior is a bit rigid and unfriendly. The bathroom lookes like in a hospital. The terrace is also too big, you are not able to use this size. The Oitavos has a shuttle bus service which is good, because the centre is 4km far from the hotel. The spa consist of one finnish sauna / one turkish bath / jacuzzi / swimming pool, if your room doesnot including the fee, it is not really worth it. The breakfast and the dinner in the hotel was excellent!
