            Restaurant service was good and attentive, although food wasn't always hot

            Very small, not many facilities

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The Food!!!!

            Small rooms and some titivation required

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            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.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            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

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            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.
