This hotel was so beautiful. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was great and the dining staff were extremely attentive, especially Raquel Faira. The room was very large. A great experience for families if you don't want to be in the city. It's a great location because you can take a 15 min walk to Cascais and drive to Lisbon in 20 min. We will definitely be back.

If opulence and luxury is what you are after then look no further. This hotel ticks all the boxes. I can???t rate the staff high enough. Many have worked here many years. The doorman and concierge have worked at the hotel 60 years from what I understand. When staff are as loyal as this to an establishment, it???s impressive and shows how the staff are so integral to the smooth running of this high end elegant hotel. In return, it becomes clear that residents return to the hotel year on year. The staff have time for everyone who stays here and indulge in conversations with everyone showing a very personal touch with their clientele making everyone feel cared for and attended to. The decorations and interior of the hotel are in keeping with the style of the building and everywhere and everything is kept very clean. Breakfast is particularly good. Something for everyone on a buffet style basis though breakfast is also cooked to order should you want your eggs cooked in a particular way. Staff in the breakfast room are particularly efficient. Coffee and tea served extremely quickly. Dirty crockery cleared away and replaced with new in no time at all. The pool area is scrupulously clean. Lots of loungers and pool towels provided. Drinks and lunch served as required. Nothing to do with the hotel at all but we found places to eat in the local area in short supply so would often walk to Cascais which is about a 20/25 pleasant minute walk along the seafront.
We had a most enjoyable 4 day stay and would definitely recommend!
