At some point this was probably a nice hotel. Those days are long gone. It's run down, overpriced but they don't seem to realize it. They have an arrogance among the staff that seems to be indicative of a more "exclusive" time. The beach is nice, and the pool is seasonal.

Thank you for your review. The Arribas Sintra Hotel is beeing renovated constantly. Even 1 year ago we were remodeling our rooms on the top floor. This year we are doing the same to the rest of the hotel. We keep working everyday to keep the hotel in top conditions so that our clients have a pleasant stay. Sincerely. Arribas... More

Lovely hotel. Amazing location, right on the sea front, with an amazing outdoor pool. Watching the tide come in and out and the waves splash into the pool was entertainment in itself. The staff were kind, helpful, and multilingual.; nothing too much trouble. The breakfast excellent and very good value, as was the restaurant and cafe / bar. The family... More

A basic room nice view of the Atlantic but nothing too special, reasonable rates obtained by booking well in advance, close by a few restaurants. The breakfast was good and the rooms clean, it may be quite hot in summer as rooms face directly west

Not sure an architect was involved in the design of this hotel. It has a huge pool that is difficult to access directly from the hotel. Not a cent has been spent on the building or the rooms ( except for maybe reception ) since opening and it shows . 3 star rating is being kind. Hotels do not appear... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Hotel Arribas. Amazing location, very comfortable room. We had a superior room with balcony overlooking the sea. It is an ideal location for a beach holiday but also for visiting Sintra which is close by.

We were recommended to go there by Claudia from My Vintage Wedding as we were there as guests. It was great. Newly refurbished. Nothing is to much trouble. Great staff. Reception, resturant and house keeping staff excellent. 2 mornings we had extra people but all accommodated without fuss for an extra charge. Clean, modern and comfortable rooms. Beds really comfy,... More

A nice, clean hotel on the beach for an affordable price. Common areas appear newly remodeled. Restaurant has great food and you can sit outside overlooking the beach/pool. Our room had two bedrooms, the first as you enter with no windows (good for the kids or baggage overflow), then newly modernized bathroom and closet area, then second bedroom, with flat... More

Appears to have been updated. As a three star it outshines many a four star. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Excellent shower with easy access. Staff excellent. Food good but could be better. Extras expensive. Would visit again. We are a 55+ couple. Very good parking.

The Hotel Arribas was very good - pool was fab and perfect for our needs on this trip. I would advise if you want a bit of night life or things to do in the day, then you need a car as the surrounding area is quiet of an evening with a limited choice of restaurants and activities within walking...

We stopped for lunch and what a view of the beach. Staff was very attentive. Allowed us to take our time. The buffet had a nice variety of salads and hot food. The tuna salad and Octopus salad definitely worth a try. The fish, pork and pasta were fresh and wonderful flavors. A full menu was also a available to... More
