Best for Families - Expert review of Albatroz Hotel Cascais

The best of Cascais's palatial seaside hotels.

A former royal residence, the hotel is a harmony of understated charm and regal class. Perched above a beach-trimmed headland, the hotel stands above the dazzling Atlantic, which washes its salty sea air throughout the hotel, creating a dreamy beachfront haven.

Location: 

Right on the water. Cascais' seaside beaches are a Frisbee throw away. The main shops and restaurants of the town are all within a short walking distance. Also, the train station to get into Lisbon city centre (30 minutes) is less than two minutes walk away.

Bedrooms: 

Rooms vary from aristo-opulent to beach-house casual. Ignore the street-facing rooms, as missing out on the spectacular sea views defeats the point of the hotel. If you’ve got the cash, the suites are spectacular – Brazilian-wood library-style living rooms and stone pillar balconies, with, of course, the mandatory floor-to-ceiling azure Atlantic view.

Public areas: 

Chessboard marble flooring and hallways filled with black and white pictures of yesteryear Cascais. The leather armchairs in the library-style living area are just the spot for an early-evening tot and a flick through National Geographic.

Eating and drinking: 

The Albatroz restaurant serves a grand breakfast buffet. It’s also worth a meal at lunch or dinner for classic Portuguese fare. The newly renovated cliff-top bar is the swankiest waterfront spot for sunset sangrias.

Leisure facilities: 

A lovely child-friendly swimming pool overlooks the ocean.

Service: 

I found the very amiable staff didn’t miss a beat with every want and whim tended to with a flashing smile.
