Just got back from six days and nights at the Real Grande Villa Italia. I’ll start with a suggestion- it would be nice if the pool was heated. The water can be quite chilly in the morning. Okay, that’s about as close to a complaint as I can think of. Beyond that, there are simply not enough great thing I...

We visited cascais last week. This hotel was wonderful. Besides being beautiful, the staff at this hotel go out of their way to be of assistance to everyone. The breakfast is extraordinary and the hosts, Chris and Monica, gave exceptional service. The hotel is walking distance to town. It has a beautiful pool. The rooms have automatic curtains, converters and...

We ended up here without knowing where we would stay and what a pleasant surprise! We stayed in Room 21 in Vila D'Este. The room resembles a small studio with a separate office/closet room, bedroom and bathroom. The office/closet room is perfect for people staying longer. The bathroom has a separate toilet (with door) and a separate bath and shower....

In my experience hotels can fall short of expectation, even a five star hotel. This is not the case with this hotel. From the dedicated staff and personalised experience, everything is made to make your stay as smooth and enjoyable as possible. At the same time it is quite laid back, with a homey feel. The rooms and amenities are...

I stayed here for three days this week on a short break away to Lisbon. it is unreservedly the nicest hotel i have ever stayed in. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or kinder. the room was to die for, overlooking the sea and the food was to die for. I will definitely be back. outstanding in every way.

This is a proper 5 star hotel. My wife and I stayed for three nights following three nights in the centre of Lisbon.

Stayed here from June 12-19. Firstly the hotel is based about 5 minutes walk from centre of cascais. It's based on a bit of a hill from town centre with beautiful views of the Atlantic ocean. Our room had a balcony and sea view. The room itself was massive and was cleaned twice daily by very professional cleaning ladies. The...
