Hotel is excelent. Made an exciting surprise for a birthday. Location perfect for quiet and peacefull stay. It takes 20-30 mins by bike to Cascais, o 5-10 Euros by taxi is faster. As I attended professional courses, did not play golf, but it seems to be nice place for golf lovers. SPA was wonderfull.

Excellent hotel With a service-minded staff. Good and exciting golf. Nice restaurants in Cascais. Surroundings with a lot of interesting things to see.
Pleasant climate for Scandinavians used to winter at this time of year.

Excellent hotel, excellent golf course, magnificent staff (restaurant, hotel, bar, golf caddies), excellent accomodation. I can warmly recommend a stay at this place. The people and staff working at the resort are very helpful, gentle, polite and kind. In addition, they speak very good english.

We visited Qinta da Marinha the first time in 1997 and 2013 we celebrated the 12th time.
Since 2006 we have become regularly visitors once a year. The atmosphere at the hotel is very friendly with an exellent staff knowing how to perform service. The main reason for our first visit at the resort was golfing. The golf course and also the surroundings have really improved during the years. All facilities are available at the hotel, but Quinta da Marinha is also a perfect base for other activities in the beautiful area.
After returning home you are already longing for the next visit.

This is posted as a "Resort Property" in Cascais, Portugal. I was traveling with someone attending a medical conference for a weekend in March 2014. We had the
luxury of traveling for 10 days prior to this meeting. We were in Lisbon, Barcelona, San Sebastian, Santiago, Porto Portugal, Sintra,and finally this hotel for a meeting place. Unfortunately the worst came last on our trip. The hotel service was practically non existent. We went to the reception desk and asked to be checked in. It is a self service hotel, which is fine with us as long as we are informed at the time of check in as to the way the hotel runs. If you need to iron a shirt you do so in the downstairs hallway where the ironingboard resides...(which we found out on our own). Yet, the staff here seemed very self important and gave minimal information. We went to the bar prior to dinner for a beer and glass of wine. There were 2 men behind the bar going over the computer billing screen. They took time to fill the men's orders at their end of the bar but we went unnoticed for 8-10 minutes. I finally walked around to face the and asked for our order and they did respond. We asked if the bar served food and our bar tender said, yes, I'll bring you peanuts. Later we observed a group of women having a light bar meal. When we went to pay our bill we asked about this.The other bar tender responded "yes, we have food". We suggested he tell his work partner that information.
First of all , this hotel is advertised as being in Cascais. It turns out the actual town of Cascais is a 45 plus minute walk to town. The hotel gave us a map, but not true to scale,on the way to town we were hungry and stopped at a local cafe for a light lunch. There was a no smoking sign posted at the entrance. By the way, most of Portugal seems to smoke, and though it is " not legal" in public places is is widely ignored. So we ate a bad lunch of iceberg lettuce and winter tomatoes in a smoke filled place. We then walked the remainder of the way to town.
If going to Cascais stay in town ! If going to golf save your money and go farther north...better golf resorts.
This hotel and its lack of service is not good for travelers who have had the welcome of other hotels,B&B's, posadas, paradors,rooms,hostels etc through out Spain and Portugal
