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

Service was spectacular

The service makes this hotel but on a close second comes the quality of food and wine. Here for a corporate event and though I didn’t use many of the facilities the ambiance is relaxing and tranquil. Perfect for business or pleasure.

Pretty good, relaxing hotel

Stayed for 5 nights and had a very relaxing time. Spacious rooms, very modern decor and an awesome sun terrace and seawater pool.

Breakfast is tasty, but the downside is that the waiting staff here are very unhelpful and almost seem to actively ignore you. Nothing was explained to us and we were not given any menus, instead I had to deduce what was on offer over the course of several breakfasts by observing what others had ordered. You can basically order anything you like and as I said it is very tasty, just the service could do with a little work.

Would definitely come back though!

Nickel and dime you for everything!

The hotel is very beautiful! It has a luxorious feel but the second you dig a little deeper you encounter several problems.

First, I checked into my room which was mostly in order until I realised there were used coffee cups and glasses strewn throughout the room! There were also items missing from the minibar.

Second, the hotel staff lost part of my reservation (I had booked two separate stays, but confirmed this with them and asked them to connect the reservations a week prior and on check in) and housekeeping tried to hassle me out of the room while I was on work calls and while the do not disturb sign was on the door! After they called three times and opened the door twice to barge in I was able to clarify that my reservation extended two more days.

I complained about this - not really a huge deal, but definitely inconvenient and got very rude treatment from the staff until I dug out emails confirming they knew about both of my reservations and had said it was no problem to connect them.

After all this I asked for two additional coffee pods for the Nespresso machine and was told that they charge for anything over two per stay! (No matter how many days you are at the hotel).

All in all a beautiful hotel, but the staff did absolutely nothing to make it a comforting or relaxing experience. With all the great options near Lisbon I’d strongly recommend booking elsewhere.

Didn't live up to expectations

This is a rather strange hotel. Everything is huge, corridors (as in 8m wide), hallways, rooms and it feels quite empty and lacking soul. Decoration is overall unspectacular. Rooms are very spacious but again decoration is so-so. Air vent is also quite noisy. Despite all this space they have only 1 small restaurant with no charm and a very odd menu (essentially mixing meat and fish). The other "japanese restaurant" is just a counter in the hallway. The bar consists of a couple tables in the same hallway. There is indoor pool (adult only) for which you have to pay extra (not expensive 25 eur / 24h). Outdoor pool was too cold in june. I would not recommend unless you only come to golf and doesnt bother to drive 5min to the golf club. Overall a very dull experience.

Lovely stay!

We had a perfect stay. The rooms are very clean and big with a nice balcony. The only thing we didnt like was the bad WiFi connection and that they forgot to give a new water bottle every day.

You can walk to Cascais in around 40 to 60 minutes.
