Stayed here for 3 nights 17th-20th Oct on a golf break. We stayed in 2 bed 2 bath golf villas which were located in the center of the resort. From
the look of all the other accommodation and the main hotel it looked as if we were in the cheap seats. However they were extremely comfortable and all that we needed for the duration of the stay. There is a seperate bar/restaurant and clubhouse that is specifically for the golf packages. This also includes a spa and a couple of pools. The main hotel is just 2 mins away and although we didn't use looked really nice. It to had a pool which you can also use. We were on a bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast was fantastic. Beer prices were a little steep, 6 euros a pint, however it is in line with 5* properties. Taxis into nearby Cascais is approximately 7 euros each way and well worth it as Cascais is beautiful. Plenty of bars and restaurant's. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and arranged all transport and booked restaurants for us. The hotel has a link with a fish restaurant in the town and will arrange free transport to and from. We ate there one night and it was really good. Restaurant is called , Monte Mar.
Now the golf, played at Quinta, Penha Longa and Oitavos Dunes.
Quinta was really good, a little wet in places but a really good test with some great holes. Not overly difficult if you play from the right tees. We played from the back on the first day, and although our pary included several single figure handicappers it was a slog, next day off the yellow tees it was far more enjoyable.
Penha Longa was wet, there has been a lot of rain in the region recently, and this made it very long even off the members tees. It was a great golf course though with some brilliant holes and scenery to die for. The par 3's were particularly memorable. Just make sure if you take buggies that you can take them onto the course, we had to keep to the buggy track and this was a chore. Fantastic clubhouse, again expect to pay 5* price
Oitavos Dunes, well its ranked 67 in the world, it is fantastic but not sure it is that good. It has a linksy feel to it with 360 degree vistas of the ocean, great springy turf an a joy to walk round, buggies here are 75 euros each. So good to walk for a change. Again choose the right tee's as its a monster of the back and ther will always be a little wind, alround a great trip and would definitely recommend.

We booked online and asked the General Manager to extend an upgrade and he did so.
Our accommodation was a corner suite with large terrasse where we had breakfast enjoying the view of the golf course and the sunrise.
the team at the Front Desk was genuine and nice.
We would stay there again.

Great way to have some peace and quiet. Beautiful surroundings, even if you don't play golf. Great to walk. Half hour to the ocean, an hour to town (Cascais center).
Good rooms and very nice and friendly staff. Good breakfast.
If you DO play golf than how nice do you want it. Hotel is on the course and the outside terras overlooks the course. Spa and gym are nice. Pricing of the Spa treatments are a bit steap but comparable to other european countries, which doesn't have to be as Portugal still is cheaper than the rest. Local restaurants and bars all have very nice pricing. The "international" places are overpriced so stay away from them. I would recommend the hotel, but have dinner in town.

My wife and I took a chance booking the place blindly on Hotwire as a secret hotel.
We paid 219 euro for three nights without breakfast. Others we met got a better deal with breakfast with Secret Escapes. It is a golfers hotel which has a steady stream of golfers coming through the doors for rounds of golf, tuition. THE DOWN SIDE IS IT IS A 7 EURO TAXI INTO TOWN AND SEVEN EURO HOME AGAIN LATER.
TWO FRESH ORANGE JUICES COST 15 EURO.
The cheap holiday break was looking not to be too cheap after all.
The hotel is lovely which has a wonderful outdoor pool looking over the golf green.There is also an indoor pool. Ideal for a golf break but to far away from town for non golfers and too pricey.

At first they gave us a room in the first floor for me it seemed like if I where in the basement, no sun light in the hallway and the
room view was to the parking lot, but we ask if they could change us to another room, and we got a better room.
the room for me seemed old but in good shape.
The golf couse look amazing, and the pool too.
If you are planning to spend time in the pool and playing golf and you don't want to spend much money, this is a good option.
If you are there just to visit Cascais I would stay in posada de cascais historic hotel.
