Gorgeous sea cliff views and outstanding hotel decor were enough to distract you from the topless ladies at the pool. The hotel is located on the beautiful ocean promenade with a bike path on one side and cliff trails in the other. We stayed for 3 nights in the two adjacent and connecting rooms on the first floor which had...

If you want a beautiful sea view and are a fan of lounging by the pool with a gorgeous view this is the hotel for you. We had a great stay here. We had a lovely room with a sea view which was enough for as we spent most of our time at the pool or exploring. The staff were...

The first thing to say is how great the staff here are. Welcoming, helpful and accommodating. But they are sadly let down by a sub-standard hotel that is style over substance. When we arrived we were 'upgraded' to room 105. I can't help but feel cheated by it, as there's an obviously noisy restaurant above which kept us awake for...

Having read reviews on here, I wondered if the sea view rooms really worth the extra cash (pretty much double) but I am so glad I didn't spend the extra. My room facing the street (203) was lovely, white wooden floor, blue décor and it had a huge balcony that was in the sun in the afternoon and evenings, unlike...

The garden rooms are smallish, but perfectly nice - would probably splash out on a sea view next time. Otherwise all fantastic. Friendly service, gorgeous views, v comfy sun loungers, great food, easy 10 min stroll into Cais Cais...didn't want to go home!

Recently returned from a 10 night stay in this lovely hotel. The hotel is situated on a rocky outcrop facing the sea and next to the lighthouse and harbour. It is opposite a beautiful Palace and the bustling little town of Cascais is a five minute walk away. We stayed in a garden room with it's own little terrace and...

Called in for a quiet pre dinner drink. We found the staff unhelpful and some down right rude. We have been staying in various hotels in Lisbon area where the staff have been first class and very friendly but certainly not here. The views from the hotel are fantastic and the location superb. Such a shame about the unpleasant staff.

Walked past this lovely hotel and went in for lunch. The staff was incredibly friendly, from front desk to dining, the place was truly beautiful, elegant, charming. Did not stay there so can't comment on the rooms, etc. but our lunch was exceptional from start to finish. Food, service and setting was beyond compare. It was really, really expensive ($70...

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
