While not quite up to Ritz Carlton standards, this is still a terrific property. Especially if you are looking for something remote. It's a destination, so it's not close or convenient to Lisboa, etc. The golf course is just OK. But the scenery around the property is awesome.

This property left me with mixed feelings. The accommodation was comfortable, the view great. Food and beverage in restaurants was of good quality. Service was very mixed. At times it was exceptional and on other occasions it was less than it should be for the level of hotel. Stayed for 3 nights.

A little out of the way, but on beautiful grounds. The foyer was very impressive as we're all the restaurants we ate at. Hands down the best service I've ever received in my ENTIRE life. They turned down the room every single time we left, even if we were in and out of the room all day. Had a nice... More

Penha Longa is set in one of the most beautiful areas of Portugal. Our room overlooked a 14th Century monastery and I never tired of the view.

We chose this hotel for a stay for my 30-th birthday. Service is real 5 star experience, I got a surprise birthday cake to my room!
