“Very comfortable and an excellent quality resort”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I had a excellent golf week with my good friend a brother in law at Penha Longa Resort. We played six rounds of golf and the course was more than acceptable even though it is only march. The resort is simply one of the best I have visited. The service is excellent and the staff is very conscious of making your stay as wonderful as possible , the cleanliness superb, all the facilities are designed for relaxing, the restaurants are all of good quality, Same goes for the room. The breakfast had variations for everyone and everything was obviously of the best quality. If you want to stay at a place of relaxation and comfort you can not go wrong booking a week or more at the Penha Longa Resort.

The highlight of our stay at Penha Longa was most definitely the staff! Everyone who worked there was friendly, kind, and attentive to our every need. We had our 7 month old son with us and they were always chatting with him. I don't think my son ever stopped smiling! He likely felt like a celebrity given all of the attention that he received. They even gave us a special welcome gift for him. I would highly recommend Penha Longa to anyone traveling with their family as they are very well taken care of!

We recently spent three nights at Penha Longa and are still talking about it. From the check in, the kids (and us adults) were blown away by the genuine hospitality and friendliness of the entire team. They even had a separate kids checkin! Awesome.
The breakfast buffet is wonderful. Absolutely something for everyone. We dined at the hotel all three nights, once in the pub, once in their Arola restaurant and our last night at il Mercado. While all three dinners were wonderful, the Arola restaurant was absolutely amazing. Very modern, but even with a two and a five year old, they were gracious and accommodating and the food was excellent.
One of the days it rained, so the staff organized a cookie baking class for the kids in the hotel on that day, which we thought was very thoughtful and very well done.
Pertaining to the last review, yes, the hotel was working on adding beautiful pavers to the front entrance. The hotel did not seem busy during the time we were there and the staff went above and beyond to meet us on the drive and even take us around the property in the courtesy car when needed. While I can understand that there is never a good time for construction, it did not appear to be a bother to anyone or affect service in any way. It was quiet work and I am sure that it looks absolutely amazing. We hope to return soon!

PS. Don't miss the pool!

We stayed four nights in February at Penha. Longa in Sintra, lovely location wonderful grounds, great room, very clean, excellent staff (my thanks to Roman for the fresh hot coffee every morning). We enjoyed our stay very much. Breakfast was also very good with many selections. We tried the Italian restaurant "Mercato" one night but it was nothing exceptional I would say average and expensive. One evening were seating at the "chai" which is part of the bar, a few guests came in and sat on the couches and then a very rude waitress came in with free drinks for them without asking us if we would like any. There was a family, a couple and single person. She brought drinks for everybody but she did not even talked to us. We felt uncomfortable and we left. On our way out I asked another female staff if the people who were offered drinks were part of a club or something else and she replied: they are VIPS and the hotel managers will come to discuss with them about their experiences in the hotel. I thought this was very cheap and did not expect something like this from the Ritz. Another problem during our stay they were doing construction in the main entrance on the road, since they wanted to do so they should have close the hotel for a week and then receive guests. It was a mess everyday and a complete eyesore. Definitely you will need a car since the hotel is very isolated from public transport.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at ground floor.

I stayed only a night , but was enough to unwind from all the city stress!
The resort is beautifull , with lots of green spaces , SPA, restaurants and things to do.
The rooms are wonderfull, very confortable and spacious enough!
The best Bath Robe I ever wore! So soft and cuddly fabric (just wanna take one home!)
Linnens are very luxurious too.
I went for a SPA treatment and my husband tried both swimming pools (out and inside), and did some Sauna!
We got a very low rate , so we opted to spend a bit more on dinner. Midori japonese buffet was perfect!

Lovely hotel experience!

An amazing historic property with the friendliest hotel staff we have ever met.......our entire visit was flawless. Of all the Ritz Carlton properties we have visited, Penha Longa was truly the best.

Marriott Mom's Tips:

Go in the off-season!! Rooms are as low as €115....Late February-March was sunny and 60 degrees---perfect for touring all the castles around Sintra and for GOLF!!

Upgrade your room to a full board package---all meals included. A excellent value---they include the kids for free. The on-site restaurants are all 5 star..the food was fabulous!

Book a Monastery Wing Suite....it will allow ample room for 2 children to stay with you in the room vs. booking an additional adjoining room.

Ask for the sweet kids' slippers, robes, scavenger hunt & activity books and take a tour of the excellent kids' play room---complete with Little Tikes bounce house!! Your kids will love it! They even have a super outdoor playground in the garden.

Order the kids' a Penha Longa Delight---a ginormous, fun, fruit juice and cream drink they will love!

Christmas card photo: ask a staff member to take your family picture on the 4th floor lounge balcony overlooking the monastery and mountains---AMAZING!

My wife and I spent Christmas in Portugal, since we are Ritz members, we stayed at Penha Longa, we were hesitant at first because we had a short vacation and Sintra is some distance from Lisbon. We have other hotel memberships but the rate was unbeatable and we were going to have a private tour guide for a couple of days (read my forum) so Penha Longa was our choice. Excellent decision, the place is perfect, surrounded by nature, incredible golf course, we dont play golf but it crossed our minds to give it a try. Excellent restaurants, service up to The Ritz Carlton level. I think many people dont go there due to distance, honestly it's short drive from Lisbon and actually you are closer to other beautiful Portugal attractions. Thanks to the whole team from Penha Longa, specially to the bellboy, I apologize that do not recall your name, he was so helpful in everything we needed, he was on duty on Christmas evening and my wife suitcase did not arrive, the whole staff assisted us but this guy went above and beyond, obrigado. We also used the spa, excellent treatments reasonable priced.
