A real palace
During the challenging times we are all living, we found a real palace on this magnificent hotel. The hotel is extremely careful of the situation concerning COVID-19, and the staff play the right rules, as you feel extremely safe here. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and the entire hotel a real oasis. The breakfast is highly recommended and again the rules and measures implemented leaves you to profit a delicious way to start your day, as everything is properly covered / or served by the staff. I would like to make a special mention to Mrs Raquel at Breakfast as she is the perfect example of 5* hotel service, together with Marta (FB) and Mr Jose (breakfast), however, all the staff we have come across are extremely kind and courteous. Congratulations to all the hotel.
Old school European luxury hotel
Old school European luxury hotel Rooms fairly basic. Maybe see if you can get one facing the pool. The pool was beautiful, but we were there when it wasn't warm enough to use. James Bond bar was cool (a number of articles have been written about how the hotel was inspiration for Ian Fleming). Pictures of the rich and famous who have stayed here were interesting (though hotel could toss Rudy Giuliani at this point) There is a nice selection of books in their traveler book sharing area Excellent breakfast Drive to Cascais for lunch or dinner or there may be no better options closer to home. Next to a big casino. We didn't go but looked nice from the outside. Attempted to drive to Sintra but that didn't work well. Next time we would take the local train from Lisbon.
Traditional luxury with excellent service
4 couples on a birthday weekend with golf and relaxation. Staff attentive and professional, bar was elegant served by Wilson who is great fun. Breakfast has good selection and cappuccino if you ask. Good location with things to do in walking distance plus you can chill by the pool. Water was very cold in March. We played golf at their associated course which was short and very challenging with fast greens. We will come back for sure - thank you
Without doubt one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. They really know what customer service is all about. The uniformed doorman, the welcoming receptionist, the porter who guided us to our room, the concierge, and fantastic bar staff are all just perfect. The ambiance and decor harp back to a more genteel and glamorous time. This is where 21st century demands are easily met with early 20th century refinements. Would we come again? Definitely definitely definitely.
Perfect in every way
The welcome from a traditionally dressed doorman marks the class for your entire stay. This hotel has successfully operated for almost 100 years which ensures a smooth perfect experience. Nothing is left to chance in this ordered elegant atmosphere. The decor is Classic and beautiful transmitting an air of tranquility. The garden pool area is perfect and beautiful. Restaurants and bars ooze class and style which the pleasant attentive waiting staff ensure you enjoy your culinary and drink desires. Food is good but lacks flair and could easily be improved. The entire hotel is immaculately maintained. It was a pleasure to be a guest and will always look forward to repeating our experience.
