We stayed at the hotel for 7 days and our stay could not have been better. Check-in was smooth and quick. Staff spoke English very well and were extremely helpful
and knowledgeable at all times.
We had a room on the 5th floor and the hotel did well to cater for our needs as we had a toddler with us. Not sure if all the rooms have a small kitchenette, but our's did which was quite handy for boiling water and washing etc.
Little difficult to locate the hotel at night in the dark, if driving. There is plenty of parking on site, although on weekends you may struggle to find parking if the hotel has an event on or is fully booked.
Breakfast: a large variety offered, although its the same thing everyday therefore can get a bit boring towards the end of your stay
Hotel Restaurant: Ate here a couple of times. There isn't much food choice, and prices are on par to that outside of the hotel. In town centre (10 mins walk from the hotel) you have a lot of places to eat, although they are generally priced for tourists and try and pull you in. If your willing to walk a bit further you will find other places to eat for less price and taste much better. There is also a food court on the 3rd floor of the shopping centre which is good.
Marina - Literally 5 mins walk from the hotel
Cascais town - 10mins walk from the hotel
Nearest beach - 10mins walk from the hotel - outside town centre
Train station - 25mins walk from the hotel
Nearest Supermarket - 30mins walk from the hotel
Nearest Shopping Centre 30mins walk from the hotel
The only negative thing I have to say about the hotel is the playground which was cordoned off. The hotel said it will be open when I emailed them before my trip, but there was some landscaping work being done in their gardens. A bit annoying but there is a lovely park about 10 mins walk from the hotel for young children and toddlers which is more appealing.
Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 4 nights, got a sea view room on the top floor, view was lovely & road was not busy at night. Breakfast had hot and cold buffet,
plenty of juices but have to say was disappointed that fresh squeezed orange juice wasn't available :(
Rooms were serviced every day, even if you had a "do not disturb" sign on the door.
lovely stroll into town for a bite to eat & we felt very safe here.
Would not recommend if you a looking for a party atmosphere, definitely more chill out.

Stayed here on a BA package so though we knew not to expect a sea view room we thought we could pay to upgrade as it was low season. On
asking the staff we were told we could not do this as there was only a couple of floors open in the hotel as they were renovating a lot of the hotel.
We had a newly renovated room with balcony at the back of the hotel on the 4th floor.
The room was large with a sofa,table and chairs. Flat screen tv with lots of tv channels including ones showing lots of English speaking series/news/sport.
There were twin beds,though both were very large for singles,more like three quarter size each.
There was no iron or board. There was a safe but you had to pay 2.50 euros a day for the privilege of using it.
Plenty of room in the wardrobe and two lots of four drawers at each side of the desk.
A mini bar was in the wardrobe if needed.
No kettle/tea or coffee in the room but they will provide them for you free of charge.
The bar area looked really nice and the breakfast was the usual Vila Gale buffet with lots of choices,hot and cold. Breakfast staff were always smiling and polite.
Bathroom was adequate with the usual toiletries of shampoo/gel and soap/shower hat.
Hair dryer was also OK.
Free wi fi was good to have but drove me slightly nuts as it just kept crashing all the time.

Firstly if you want a quiet upmarket location when visiting Cascais this hotel offers that location. The Hotel is very well run with very helpful staff. The sea view rooms, which are a must, are extremely large and well appointed. If I had a criticism the breakfast food is not kept hot enough, but this should be easily resolved. Otherwise a great base to visit Cascais and the Sintra region.

Clean hotel, with nice new furniture in the rooms, huge space, clean bathrooms recently renovated, every day cleaning, quick room service, nice people working in the hotel, breakfast was reach
in food however not something very special but not bad at all. the price was ok, the view if you have a room to the sea is fantastic with the atlantic ocean on your window.
air condition heating, enough for the weather when i stayed there
by foot 400 metres from the village centre and the main restaurants of cascais
not a bad choice, if you find good price grab it, the view is marvellous and the rooms are 5 star.
