"Beautiful hotel, excellent service"
The service at Grand Real Villa Italia is what makes this trip. Every single employee has a smile on their face and is eager to exceed the needs and expectations of each guest. From the minute we pulled up to check in, to the minute we left, we felt so welcomed.

"Discreet, friendly and smart."
A very comfortable hotel. Fine views of sea from all front rooms. Foyers and dining areas spacious and smart. Plenty of room for eating and drinking outside. STAFF FRIENDLY AND REALLY KEEN TO PLEASE WITHOUT BEING PUSHY. Location very good for stroll into town centre or exploring nearby municipal gardens . Weekend brunch arrangements imaginative and beautifully laid out. A happy and restful stay in a busy but not overtly tourist seaside town.

"Winter stay in Cascais"
Villa Italia is ideally situated on the rocky sea front. A very pleasant 15 minute walk into Cascais a delightful town with a sandy beach and many other small beaches further along. Cascais has many restaurants and bars and is a very pleasant town. From Cascais a train will take you into the centre of Lisbon in 40 minutes.The hotel is very good but the outstanding feature is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff - by far the best I have ever encountered. Buffet breakfast was very good with a wide choice and the staff happy to cook you anything not in the buffet. We did not have any other meals in the hotel as it was rather expensive. Our room was large with a superb bathroom and side view to the sea.

"Lovely Hotel"
We stayed with our 8month old baby daughter here for 5 days on a B&B basis in late October. Staff at check in were very friendly and professional and we were upgraded to a suite which was very spacious and well appointed. They were also particularly helpful in arranging a surprise cake for my wife as it was our wedding anniversary and assisting us fix a problem with our airport transfer. Across the whole stay we felt the staff struck the perfect balance between being friendly and professional. The hotel itself is to a high standard and has an amazing view out to sea from the restaurant terrace. The pool is idyllic and was never too busy though this may have reflected the time of our visit. The breakfast options were excellent and of a very high standard, though if you're used to All Inclusive resorts it might seem a bit limited. There was the usual continental meats and cheeses, bread, cakes and pastries, a variety of tasty hot dishes and fruits etc . There was very good quality sparkling wine available and the facilities to make your own Bloody Mary. You could sit in or outside by the pool. The spa facilities were excellent and we both had a treatment which was reasonably priced. There were a couple of quibbles as you get on any holiday but nothing that affected our stay or enjoyment.

A lovely, well decorated, peaceful 5 star hotel in a great location a short 10 min walk into the centre of beautiful Cascais. We had a great dinner at a reasonable price in the first class hotel restaraunt. Great selection and choice at breakfast. All staff very helpful, friendly and eager to please. Room was fantastic, great balcony and view, a large comfy bed and well appointed bathroom with a great shower. A perfect hotel to relax in. A great choice and location for exploring Cascais and Sintra.

"Hotel grande real villa italia"
The check in was fast and friendly.We were upgraded to a deluxe sea view room. This room was very spacious and comfortable.The bathroom had a seperate shower which was great. The breakfast was very plentiful, the breakfast room, a large room, was very well organised by the girl in charge who was a lovely and charming person.We ate in the resteraunt also,where the food was also very good.One of the main reasons this hotel is so good is because of it's staff, from the people doing the rooms, which they left immaculate, to the staff in the dining room who always had a smile on their faces and the people on the front desk who were very helpful and friendly.My wife and I were delighted we chose this hotel for our stay in cascais and will recommend to our friends.

This was our first time away with our child and we were a little nervous but the moment we entered the hotel we felt at ease. The staff were second to none and were very friendly and helpful every step of the way, the room was amazing with great facilities and the food in the hotel was outstanding.

my husband and I stayed at this hotel for a 4 night break recently - the location of the hotel is great with just a 10 min walk into cascais. all the staff were very friendly and nothing was any trouble - the outdoor pool facilities are very good. the rooms were very clean and spacious and the bed was very comfy - we were upgraded so having a lovely double balcony was a plus. the breakfast choice was plenty and I would not hesitate to return to this hotel in the neat future.

"A luxurious but lovely four day"
The hotel is very luxurious but not at all intimidating as the staff are so friendly and helpful. We had paid extra for a room with a balcony overlooking the sea and the pool. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom well arranged and the plumbing excellent. The choice of food at breakfast was amazing, and all good. However, we ate only one dinner in the hotel as we found the food there very poor indeed. I am surprised that such a good hotel could provide such an unappetizing evening meal. There are a few hotels nearby but the nearest restaurant is nearly half a mile away. The walk along the coast is very pleasant.

"Imposing hotel in a great location by the sea"
Had a great time .5star building but service only 41/2. 5starprices but breakfast disappointing... Varied but quality of. Food disappointing... Had a snack on the terrace which took too long to arrive so much so we were not charged for the drinks... And the pigeon and seagulls kept us constant company, they were a pest its a shame. There seemed to be a shortage of waiting staff.

"Luxury hotel for family vacation ."
We love the hotel closed to beach, museum ,marina,town, Boca Inferno,bike along the coast line.The salt swimming pool is very good because the water is very cold aand the beach Guincho very windy.You need a wet suit for surfing even in summer. Cascail town is very charming,small boutique shopping,gelato stroll is quiet safe for tourist. All the museum are free,you can catch a short train to visit Estoril,the sister town ( casino,park,shop ping). The hotel is nice but you should request Villa d' Este ( more luxury and quiet ) or balcony with sea view.WE are not lucky,they give us a room in the front hotel,noisy ,no balcony.We ask for up grade,but no availability.

"Nice hotel conveniently situated for the marina"
Beautiful hotel but slightly disappointed with breakfast. Had to order fried eggs on request which took ages to arrive. Would be better to have an "egg station". Also service for lunch was slow and there was no cooked vegetarian option, only a salad. Staff throughout the hotel and were very attentive. Room (a suite) was fantastic, two bathrooms and two rooms but surprisingly, no plugs in the sinks so wet shaving was difficult.

"An outstanding Hotel overlooking the shore."
My wife and I were delighted with our stay at this hotel. It has excellent accommodation, excellent staff and excellent food. What more could you want? Our room overlooked the shore and the ocean as well as the large pool and terraces. We had some meals in the hotel and some in nearby (10minutes walk) Cascais. The food in the hotel is excellent. A car is not essential but useful if you want to visit nearby palaces in Sintra, Mafra etc which are all worth seeing.

"Hard to fault near perfection."
"We have died and gone to heaven!" At least that is what my wife and I thought when the receptionist escorted us to our upgraded Executive Room. The door opened onto a spacious hallway and into the very large bedroom (photo) with its 2.2 metre wide bed, festooned with cushions and pillows. Then there was the bathroom, a work of art in marble and mosaics (photo) with separate cubicle for toilet and bidet and another for the walk-in shower. The receptionist took the time to demonstrate the copious electrical switches, two of which opened and closed the net and main curtains. Then there was the large, private and well furnished balcony overlooking the terrace, swimming pool and on out to sea (photo). Outside, the Villa Italia is pleasantly understated whilst, inside a major feature is acres of marble (photo). The hotel is cleaned and maintained to an immaculate standard. Breakfast was leisurely and of a high standard. One slight niggle - hot plates seem to be a rarity in the hotel and throughout Portugal. Food and drink is quite expensive but commensurate with the justified rating as a 5 star Leading Hotel of the World. There can be little point in saying much more of a hotel which is currently rated by 80% of reviewers as 'Excellent'.

"Service with a smile, always!"
We had a very comfortable stay at the Villa Italia. First impressions, which are very important, were excellent as the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room with a great view overlooking the sea The bathroom was well appointed and had good quality toiletries, which were plentiful. Do enquire about the half board option, which is extremely good value. As other reviewers have said, the hotel is situated in a quieter part of Cascais but a very easy and pleasant walk to the town centre. Just a word of warning, there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which is a fault of most Portuguese and Spanish hotels, things are slowly changing and I would have expected them in a 5 star hotel. If you are looking for a quiet holiday I would recommend this hotel, however, if you are looking for evening entertainment, or any entertainment at all, this hotel would not be for you. The food was of excellent quality and there was a great choice for breakfast, and if you couldn't see what you wanted the waiter would bring you anything you asked for, again no espresso coffee machine, but no problem when we asked for espresso coffee, we had service with a smile always throughout the hotel. What more can I say.

Can't fault the hotel itself - classy, clean, comfortable with an excellent spa and close to town. The only let down was the service. Front desk and concierge were good, but bar staff were incredibly slow - 10 to 15 mins average to receive an ordered drink - and the restaurant staff at breakfast took 'avoiding eye contact' to a whole new level. There always seemed to be plenty of bar/ restaurant staff around, but serving customers never seemed high on their agenda....

"Mixed bag"
Located a very short walk into Cascais, made the hotel convenient for evening walks and for dinner. At the hotel itself, the staff were great especially as is usually the case, the bar and pool staff. Unfortunately there was a shortage of beds around the pool and some days residents had to sit by the restaurant area waiting to see if any became available. Breakfast was good and replenished regularly. We had the hotel barbecue one night which was dreadful. Food seriously undercooked and not being cooked quickly enough. The room was very disappointing in terms of the size especially as all the others in our party had substantially larger rooms, some twice the size.

Such an amazing hotel , a true 5* experience . Room was lovely and so were the staff every minute of the day. Breakfast was yummy and the pool staff were so helpful My one tiny complaint if you could call it that is the proximity of one sunbed to the next, far too close to the point where you literally are in a line up so personal space is not there. This hotel is a must for anyone who needs to unwind and enjoy being looked after for a long weekend or more !! Going back next year ...

"Superb Hotel"
Hotel was fantastic. One of the best we have ever stayed in. One drawback, babies and baby carriages in the Cocktail Lounge and Dining Room up to 10 o.clock at night. This seems to be a universal problem, but there has to be a cutoff time where children are not allowed in the Dining Room or Cocktail Lounge after a certain time i.e 8 o'clock. We have no objection to children, but I feel strongly that adults should not have to listen to crying children after a certain hour.
