In a brief word, this is the most over-priced, and over-hyped hotel I have stayed at in 25 years of travelling. If you are to believe their prices and self-promotion, you will be expecting to roll around in luxury. NOT! You will not be greeted by any friendly or helpful staff. They are brusque, argumentative, and look down on you...

The air is fresh, the view is amazing from the hotel terrace and restaurant. Breakfast was good. The best orange juice we have had on this vacation. Room was cosy. Loved the bathroom. Had a partial sea view from our room. Did not try the formal restaurant but had a great meal in the terrace area.

The hotel is an old fort which makes it very unique. It is located right on the water so you have some really nice views. The restaurant is really the selling point to this place.

Spent five days there, staff really great, helpful and friendly and the restaurant is well deserving of it's Michelin star. A great location for Lisbon and Sintra and right next to a soft sandy beach. Would have liked some tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the bathroom was cramped but still enjoyed our stay.
