Magic because it seems they knew my needs before I even did! Breakfast was the highlight of my morning. If it wasn't the delicious food, it was the view. The...

The Farol Hotel is definitively a very nice place for your stay in beautiful Cascais. It was our first trip to Portugal overall and at Farol Hotel at any time we felt very welcomed and attentively being taken care of. And of course the place itself is really stunning: the hotel is adjacent to the Cascais lighthouse and borders directly...

Really cozy and romantic design hotel. The service is excellent, the view of the ocean is stunning and the rooms are great. However some rooms could need some extra finishing touch on it. We stayed in two different rooms, and one was amazing and the other needed some extra work with the lightning and bathroom to be excellent and for...

My wife and I were recent visitors to the Hotel on a (very) last minute ‘Babymoon trip’. Having booked largely on favourable weather conditions 48 hours before, we’d had little time to get our heads around Cascais as a destination for our short stay. We needn’t have worried, for we had a lovely time. Specific to our experience, do make...

5 STARS for the setting and service...beautiful, small hotel on the rocks overlooking the water and lighthouse. You can't beat the view!! The front desk was very good at communicating before we arrived regarding any special accommodations needed and about room bathroom remodeling noise we could encounter. Bar and restaurant service was great, as was the bar decor! Loved it!!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Planted on the edge of the rocks that rise out of the ocean, Farol Hotel is set in a mansion dating back to 1890, formerly owned by the Count of Cabral. In 2002 an extension was built, creating a superb innovative interface between the 19th century original building and the daring new contemporary structure extending over the rocks and offering superb views of the Atlantic and most picturesque sunsets.Unique in concept, the designer rooms originated from an invitation to select top Portuguese fashion designers to “dress a room”. ... more   less
