"Cannot fault this gorgeous hotel!"
Beautiful hotel in stunning position on sea front. Very comfortable, stylish room and exceptionally friendly and pleasant staff. Food good too. On the pricey side but you get what you pay for!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Such an amazing hotel with top class staff. They where very friendly and the hotel had the good balance of classic and modernism. I surely do recommend it and will be coming back soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful hotel short walk from town"
A lovely, well run establishment with excellent friendly and helpful staff. Faultless.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything about this hotel was excellent. The food, the staff, the decor and location. Cannot praise this high enough. Was fab and we will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel but the service is not so good"
The hotel is well situated and the rooms are nice. Pool is in nice setting but cold. Greeting was awful - receptionist said hardly anything and did not give us cards you need for pool towels. Spas is lovely and thermal suite well worth the 20 euro.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good but slow service"
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.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel in a great location."
This is a fantastic hotel. Everything was great. Fantastic breakfasts, really nice pool area. Our room was very well appointed. I had a massage in the spa and it was one of the best massages I have had.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location slightly out of town, lovely staff, delicious breakfasts, spa & pool also greatGenuine Expedia guest review
"This IS a 5 star hotel!"
Very pleased experience to stay. The price is reasonable, and the condition is excellant. I will be back if I visit Cascais in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Will return year after year!! Amazing"
Fantastic staff that are welcoming, helpful and greet you by name! Nothing is too much trouble for them. Rooms are very spacious and clean. This was my second stay at GRVItalia and even held my wedding here which was amazing as again were all the staff involved. I cannot recommend this hotel enough! 5 minutes walk to the town, great Sunday night BBQ […] and great for families I was with a 2 year old. Real mixture of families couples or business travellers.

"Beautiful place to stay !"
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 ... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I travel a lot on business and it would be difficult to find a better hotel .. Staff excellent as was food and standard of accomodation. Terrific placeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pros and Cons as expected but can recommend!!"
Stayed here for 4 nights. Its a beautiful, opulent hotel and location. CONS: Our view wasn't too great but we were offered a "sea-view" room for an extra 200.00 Euros!! We did not take it. The curtains in our room had some minimal damage, the carpets were stained and there was a loose ceiling board in the bathroom that made an annoying banging noise […] whenever the A/C was on. Don't bother with meals in the hotel restaurant as its quite pricey and there are amazing authentic fresh seafood places about 15 minutes walk away in the Cascais village centre just next to the gorgeous beach. PROS: The staff were near perfect (especially Maria and Tania at the main reception desk). They were always respectful, dignified and helpful. The breakfast buffet was amazing and the staff managing it were just so kind and helpful. Overall we loved our trip to Portugal and fell in love with Cascais, Estoril and Lisbon.

"A very good short stay- LONGER NEXT TIME!"
We checked into this hotel following a short stay at a nearby 5 star conference hotel...this 5 star hotel was far more modern. Staff were very polite and friendly but not stuffy. We booked last minute for a ritual at the Spa and found it was fully booked - the staff went out of their way to re-schedule appointments in order to fit us in. The spa was […] good, although I have had a reaction to the products used despite informing staff that I have sensitive skin. (normally an Elemis user - only!) That said, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will visit this hotel and spa again. We used the restaurant and found the food to be good also. Good location - not far from great little restaurants in the town centre and the marina. Can definitely recommend a stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Luxury with ocean views and friendly staff"
This is a wonderful hotel with friendly, helpful staff. It is luxurious, with marble and other stone surfaces a feature. Our room and bathroom were very spacious and impeccably clean. All ultra modern facilities. Having free wifi throughout the hotel, including pool-side was great. The hotel is located right on the ocean and a 5 minute walk from the […] centre of Cascais. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone of any age. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"More suitable for couples or adult groups"
Very nice Hotel, beautiful setting with a large pool to relax by. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms are spacious. Good position - ten minute walk to town centre. Only downside Pigeons were a nuisance on some of the balconies(Grand Superior). They left their mark each day!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Villa Itallie and Cascais"
Villa Italie is an excellent hotel. We were upgraded to prestige room with sea view. Fully recommend this hotel. Excellent friendly staff. The hotel is located on the outskirt of Cascais with 10min walk to the Marina and 15min walk into the centre. The hotel has a good location. Cascais itself is a lovely resort and on train line to Lisbon some 30mins […] away. Cascais has many restaurants serving seafood and much more all at reasonable cost. Overall we got excellent value for our money with Hotels.com and with the Villa Italia room upgrade. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Attention to detail"
A hotel that gives attention to the detail which makes the overall stay a special feel that cannot be found in other hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in lovely setting"
Beautiful hotel, perfectly situated only 10 mins walk from Cascais town centre. The staff could not do more to help. I would thoroughly recommend a room with sea view - the room & bathroom were gorgeous, the view from our balcony was just stunning. A good selection for the breakfast buffet, & the hotel are happy to try & accommodate specific requests […] if they don't have what you would like. The Spa was lovely, & the staff at the pool bar do amazing cocktails! Wish we could have stayed on for longer... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nearly five stars"
The GRVI is grand in name and nature. Overlooking the sea, and the former home of an exiled Italian king, the hotel aspires to offer standards that reflect the building's former glory. Overall, it succeeds, though somehow not always without effort. The staff are extremely pleasant and attentive; menus are imaginative and food to a high standard; service […] is good; Rooms are Large and well decorated, but not all rooms with balconies have outdoor furniture. Double beds are enormous- well over 2 metres wide, but very low - less than 60 cm from the floor. - too low to reach the bedside light switch.There is good clothes storage and ample facilities in room, though no coffee and tea making facilities, so room service is the only option. - I know this is quite standard in many European hotels, but frankly it's shoddy, and frustrating not to be Ble to get a drink on demand rather than on staff response. We were very pleased we chose the GRVI - though it is not the hotel closest to the sea in that part of Cascais, as we had thought before booking. Overall , not quite five stars but not very far off.

"Lovely hotel stay"
We found this hotel very luxurious and opulent. The room was large, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The bathroom was stunning with a sink each for myself and my husband. Located 10 minutes walk from the centre of Cascais, it is in quiet and peaceful surroundings. The only downside was food and drinks were very expensive. We would definitely stay […] here again.

Fantastic hotel. We knew it would be great but didn't realize how great! The hotel is beautiful, the facilities were great, the staff was incredible. We had a wonderful stay. We highly recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfort and calm"
Hotel Grande Real was absolutely perfect. It was the essence of comfort. The buffet breakfast was excellent just one little advice , Irish and English people are tea drinkers and love a pot of tea made with boiling water. The tea served in the bar was perfect but in dining room was lukewarm in general. Staff are fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This hotel makes Cascais worth a visit"
Excellent service and a fantastic hotel with a well recommended SPA. Quality/price is good and it is definately worth staying at this hotel. Cascais is only a good place if you are elderly people or elderly tourists, however the hotel can location wise work as a startpoint for exploring Sintra and above or travel down towards Sesimbra.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Прекрасный отель, безупречное обслуживание. Просторный стильный номер Grand, есть все необходимое, отличные завтраки. Местоположение хорошее, для спокойного отдыха. Обязательно вернемся сюда.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotellet er tomten til en italienske konge, og med den servicen som ytes her bor du kongelig. Vi valgte oppgradert rom med sjøutsikt, og da følger en stor terrasse med på kjøpet som inkluderer to solsenger. Sengen er også gedigen (2 x 2,40 meter). Eneste minus er litt minimalistisk møblering på rommet (sofa manglet) og de kan bli overrasket over kostbar […] drikke i lobbybaren. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ruhig gelegegenes Hotel mit Wohlfühlfaktor"
Wir bekamen ein traumhaftes Villenzimmer mit Meerblick, ruhig gelegen und sehr groß. Beim Reinigungsservice gab es ein paar kleinere Mängel und das Business Center war eher dürftig mit zwei Rechnern ausgestattet, die sehr langsam waren. Beim Frühstück musste man immer wieder nach Kaffee fragen. Insgesamt hat man sich allerdings sehr bemüht und das Personal […] war sehr zuvorkommend. Auf Nachfrage erhielten wir alle Informationen über den Ort und Unternehmungen. Toll war der Meerwasserpool. Wir würden hier wieder buchen und können das Hotel weiterempfehlen.
