Those reports are wrong or misplaced... During the day it's safe and used for thousands of people, only very late in the evening there may have some sporadic minor problems. There are no buses going to Sintra, the train is frequent and very cheap...

I'm also looking for the best alternative to get to Sintra from Lisbon airport. We are traveling with 2 large suitcases. All suggestions welcome.

With 2 large suitcases the best is a taxi or private transfer, that way you don't have to deal with the long walks (and in some places with the stairs) and changes on the metro and to the train station in Lisboa. And then from the train station at Sintra to your accommodation you'll probably need a taxi anyway...

The taxi should be around 50€ and the private transfer maybe 60 or 70€.
