    best staff and service, other "delux" hotels (like w,,,,,) should come to learn service and approach to guests, small, personal feeling, location in beatiful beaches, close to estoril circuit and sintra hills.

    bed should be more comfortable for such hotel

    Superb

    Hotel was very luxurious and staff were extremely friendly and courteous. While the room was small it was very comfortable with a beautiful view. I am very grateful for the upgrade. The complimentary port, fruit chocolate were lovely. Unfortunately I didn't manage to to get the whirlpool bath working and didn't like to bother someone by asking but did enjoy the shower and the lovely toiliteries.

    When I booked i thought it was closer to Cascais but that was my fault. The complimentary taxi made up for it.

    Built to look like a fort, on site of former fort, decorated in fashion. The rooms are not large but very nice. Absolutely everybody who works here is first rate, very professional, and friendly. The views of the ocean are wonderful from rooms and common areas, and there are wonderful beaches on either side, great for walking and sunning but this is Atlantic side so wouldn't want to swim here. The restaurant was outstanding - best meal we had in Portugal. A very romantic destination!

    Not a negative but do realize that the hotel is a 5-10 min drive from Cascais along the coast so you really need an automobile

    This hotel was nice and central, close to shops and restaurants. The public transport was close aswell as the city tours. Safe area to walk.

    Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. Excellent food. Would definately recommend. Beach fantastic views

    A little too far out of the beautiful main town of Cascais. You would need a car as it's a long walk! Also beach not suitable for swimming as waves rather large due to windy Atlantic coast. This maybe due to the fact that we travelled in June, whereas July and August maybe better.

    Fabulous

    The hotel was very impressive with the decor architecture were first class, its a little like walking back in time, and living in a medevil castle with five stars. The luxury of the facilities were great, the staff were very helpful and attentive. We didnt eat dinner at the hotel, only breakfast, but the food was outstanding. Our room overlooked the sea as most of them do, with impressive veiws of the coastline, great for beach walks.

    The luxury shower jacuzzi bath didnt work, so a little disappointing

    The hotel was lovely with the exception of the bedroom. None of the lights are good enough. You cannot see to read in bed or to make up at the dressing table. The whole room is too dark and depressing.

    Lighting - v bad - see above
