Landau in der Pfalz, Germany41 contributions20 helpful votes
The hotel is a former fortress located between two beaches on the Guincho beach. At daytime, the view is amazing but in the night it is limited, as there is little to see but the sea. The service is wonderful, very discrete yet present. The hotel was renovated about 20 years ago in a traditional style that is getting on in years in the meantime. We were expecting an old-fashioned experience, but it was a bit different than we thought.

Hotel's Favourite
Fortaleza do Guincho is the perfect costal hideaway—just a short hop from Lisbon. I love the slightly remote location, the hotel‘s intimate size—and the absolute focus on quality. Rooms are very characteristic for a Fortress—you pretty much feel like entering a different century. Yet all amenities are of the highest standard. Quality, all around, is exceptional. The service is friendly and diligent. All members of staff appear proud to work here. Attention to detail is high. The hotel features a Michelin Star restaurant with an amazing view (recommendation). But food in all outlets is excellent. At the time of my visit the hotel had implemented an excellent Covid-regime, strictly followed by all staff (and most guests-the rest were kindly reminded). I felt very safe. Thank you to both the brilliant GM and all staff for a wonderful stay.

We accidentally found this hotel while on a long hike from Cascais. It looks like an old fortress. Decided to book a night but got there well before check-in. Staff did an excellent job getting us a room early and also extended our check out time. EVERY staff member we met went to extraordinary lengths to ensure our needs were met to the very best possible. Great location on the Atlantic. Rooms very nicely appointed and hotel is excellent. Had dinner in the Michelin restaurant and I say add a star to this one. Spent some time with the Chef and his creations are masterful but most of all delicious. We changed our travel plans and will be back for a couple of nights in mid-October even though we have already paid for those nights elsewhere. Have travelled all over the world and would rate this hotel and location in our top 5.

We stayed here for a few days earlier this month. It looks and feels like an old fortress right on the Atlantic, beaches either side of it, about ten minutes drive from Cascais…and very windy! Excellent service as you’d expect from Relais & Chateaux - especially from the reception staff who were very helpful as we planned and replanned our journey. There’s a casual dining cafe and a more formal restaurant plus drinks on the terrace. It’s a very elegant place to stay, close to Cascais and its restaurants and a good base to travel around the area with a car to see Estoril etc. Some larger restaurants along the nearby beach but go further (ask the staff for recommendations) along and the food and service is excellent. We had a room with open balcony and one with a closed balcony - we preferred the closed one, it came with windows that opened if needed, a chaise longer and a balcony door to separate it from the room. Very good stay in a historic hotel.

We live quite near to Fortaleza do Guincho, so 20 years after our first (and only) night there, we decided to spend our anniversary with them. First surprise: with no previous knowledge of the celebration, we got a room upgrade. The room is spacious, the view is gorgeous, the ammenities are great (what a nice touch with the Port wine and the "areias"), bed is comfortable and the view is gorgeous. At that time we mentioned the special date and when we thought things could not be better they excelled by treating us to some sparkling wine and big smiles, which made our day even more special. Service excelled throughout (special thanks to Sara) and we left wanting to come back soon.
