Stayed Monday - Friday.
Lovely spacious huge double room with a balcony (I imagine most of the rooms have balconies). Great bathroom facilities and powerful shower. The hotel is spotlessly clean and modern!
The hotel staff are very friendly and relaxed, compared to Lisbon where many of the hotel staff are institutionally miserable.
Food and drinks at the pool bar are reasonably priced, €9 for a freshly made Bolognese pizza / €4 for a sandwich. The pool is bigger than it looks and the perfect hotel for a relaxing sunbathe by the pool.
The hotel is 6 minutes walk from the centre of Cascais in a beautiful upmarket area, makes for wonderful late night walks. The taxi from the airport should be €38-€40.
Cascais is a lovely little town with lots of reasonably priced restaurants. Great for couples, older folk, not so great for younger people wanting to go on nights out. Zero clubs and very few busy bars mid week.
I would definitely stay here again and loved every second. The only negative aspect was that I 100% left my spectacles in the hotel room when we left and when I called back that night they said none were left behind.

Stayed for week in July 2014 with friends and really cannot fault the hotel, and great value for money. Good location near the Marina with a 10 minute walk along the coast or through the park to the centre of Cascais. Good size rooms with great facilities and friendly maid service. Great variety for breakfast and even though busy never really an issue with getting a table, and food replenished very quickly. Pool area was very nice with enough sun-beds and free towels from reception. Only slight niggle was after 12.00 check out (as not able to get late check out as hotel too busy) that there was not a room available for changing with shower & hair-dryer facilities etc, although the pool bar bathrooms did have showers. Would definitely recommend and certainly with return. Cannot understand some posters comments, really what do people expect or want, example a heated pool in July when the air temperature is around 28 degrees ?

Rooms are nice and big. Very clean. The pool was nice. The hotel is a 10 minute walk away from the center. We enjoyed the walk and being away from
all the noise. The breakfast was very good. It had a good variety, fresh bread, a cook to make you eggs the way you like.
Only negative aspect: do not eat there unless its for the breakfast. We had stayed at the pool one day and got hungry. So we decided to order from the restaurant despite all the negative reviews. WHAT A HUGE MISTAKE. Please avoid. I ordered the febras de porco. It looked disgusting and it tasted even worse. I paid 11euros for it. I wish I had taken a picture
I can't believe anyone would serve that. Avoid!!!!

My husband and myself stayed here last week and had a lovely time. The room was wonderful and a great size. We were pleasantly surprised to find, behind a sliding
partition a small kitchen (I don't think all the rooms have them so I guess we just got lucky). The view from the balcony is really lovely from where you can see the marina and the lighthouse. The staff are friendly and polite in all areas of the hotel. After a few days we discovered there were peacocks in the grounds when two flew passed the balcony which gave my husband a bit of fright. Bathrooms are tidy and reasonably modern. Breakfast was pretty standard fare but you have to be quick at eating the cooked food as it is not very warm. The pancakes were stone cold and I had to ask for one to be heated up. The gardens are pretty and the pool is a nice area, although we did have a laugh at the people who were reserving the sun beds each morning. I'm ashamed to say we decided to do the same in the end, well if you can't beat them join them. However, some people were putting their towels out at 7.45 a.m. and not turning up until gone 3.00 p.m, therefore I think the pool area could be better managed.
The Location couldn't have been better as it is just close enough to the town (five to ten minutes walk) and far enough away to be fairly peaceful. We are definitely going back.

Checked in July 4th for 6 days. The room was good sized, but I missed a microwave and coffee pot. We got a kettle for the week and
had tea....not the same. The room was cleaned every day and the balcony was enjoyed overlooking a park ( the peacocks were quite loud). We did not get much help from the staff. I asked if there was a place for arranging tours, making reservations, etc. and was told no. Food at restaurant was awful. We did not get breakfast with the room so bought pastries to eat the next day and kept them in the refrigerator.
We had some luck at the airport at the information booth, a car service to Cascais for 45 euros. It was Presidencial Tours www.presidencial-tours.com or email@example.com. They came at 5AM, helped us find British Airways area, and were very reliable.
I recommend going to Sintra on bus 403. Saw 2 palaces and a castle and it was beautiful. Bring a coat as it was quite cold. Hint: the bus station is under the mall, get a 12 euro ticket for the day, and enjoy. Lisbon is about 30 minutes by train away. We went in 1day to see the Castel and went to Belem as well.
Walk to Estoril to see the casino. It was the basis for the James Bond Casino Royale, and the Food and view of the fountain at the Chinese Restaurant in the casino were outstanding as was the 35 minute walk along the coast.
