Location

In the seaside suburb of Cascais, the hotel mixes boat-bobbing views with doorstep access to the town’s beaches, restaurants and bars.

Bedrooms

The rooms aren’t going to win any awards for cutting edge style, but they’re well kept, simple, comfortable and affordable. Be sure to bag an ocean-facing room with a sparkling, water-facing balcony.

Public areas

The recently renovated ground-floor reception is a slick and modern affair, with marble flooring and comfy armchairs for flicking through the papers.

Eating and drinking

The Baia Grill serves decent Portuguese and European fare, with a dining terrace that spills out onto Cascais' breezy port-facing promenade.

Leisure facilities

There’s good sized swimming pool (covered) on the roof and an adjoining open-air sun terrace.

Service

A family-run hotel, which maintains a low-key and personal charm. Owner and manager, João Coruche, and his staff deliver an excellent service above and beyond the hotel’s three-star rating.

Who stays there

Families in the summer and golfers in the winter.

Price advice

The prices are generally good value all year round, but spring and autumn are the best times for excellent deals and good weather.
