Fortaleza Do Guincho, Cascais
Worth a splurge
This is a beautiful property in an outstanding location, right on the edge of the Atlantic. The views from the windows were to die for. Every staff member was very accommodating and kind. The room was very well kept. Service in the bar and restaurant were great, and the breakfast buffet was fantastic. It was so nice to get away from the crowds and stay here.

On a cliff, couldn't ask for better views.
About 30 minutes outside Lisbon & 15 min from Cascais. Hermes products in the btheooms, great breakfast, on a cliff with beautiful views. Ocean was just outside our room. Drove to Sintra & Quinta de Regaleiro easily. Staff was friendly, zero complaints. Wouldn't stay in city center if we went back, being outside the city was worth it. Scenery was amazing.

Everything was absolutely fabulous however, the unbelievably ferocious wind prevented outside activities. Can't wait to return though.

Beautiful stay
The hotel was beautiful and service was great. A little remote so have a car or plan for taxi not expensive. Recommend changing the lunch and dinner menu a little daily for the longer term guests.
