    Hotel stuff is very good and professional. Excellent luxury level restaurant. Wonderful, reach breakfasts. Surfing beach is in a few steps.

    In total hotel is not 5 star. Absence of swimming pool. Small and rather dark rooms. Beach is very windy, not good for swimming. Nearest beach is 12 km away. One need a car.

    The breathtaking view from hotel's restaurant

  • Group of friends
    8.0

    The location, the view of the ocean and the mountains.

    The price for the room was a little high, and the washrooms were rather small

    Great restaurant

    The decor in the bedrooms was old fashioned

  • Couple
    9.2

    Location, rooms and staff were excellent

    I went in the winter but if it was in the summer I wouldn't like that, beiung a five stars, it didn't have a pool. Although it is nera the beach, Guincho is famous for its strong see

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Very attentive staff in a stunning location.

    The hotel is enormously expensive and characterised by a curiously awkward chic. The restaurant, while it offers excellent food, is also very overpriced. Travelers seeking value for money can easily find a better option.
