“Great family hotel in strangely secluded location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Stayed for five nights in July 2012 with my wife and three kids. Suburban location, within easy reach of central Lisbon by car, bus or tram. SolpLay's location is a little odd in that it is on top of a hill,surrounded by a perimeter of scrubland which then gives way to modern high rise developments. So there are no clubs or tourist bars nearby at all, nor any beaches or attractions. This means that there are no drunks or lager louts and the hotel feels very peaceful and secluded with good views. It's also a bit tricky to find by car as the access roads run round the hill so you can literally drive round in circles. There is a local supermarket which we used every day which is within walking distance.
We took two self catering rooms and left the 18-year old in charge of her younger brother and sister in one room and had our own on a separate floor. Both rooms very spacious, clean and well appointed with huge balconies.
Breakfast was included and was very good. Had dinner a couple of times and it was ok, nothing amazing. Just as easy and cheaper to do pizzas or pasta in our room. (Why don't these places give you or sell you a little starter pack of cleaning materials to use? We always end up going to a supermarket and buying washing up liquid, dish cloth, tea towels etc. and leaving them behind for the cleaners to chuck out!)
We used the hotel as a base for touring by car so only really used the facilities a bit towards the end of our stay.The family used the indoor pool a few times but I preferred the lovely outdoor one. The exterior layout is beautiful and the gardens would be lovely to wander round and even sunbathe in. The tennis courts look very nice too.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and modern and very family orientated.
I'd go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: One side has pool views, the other sea views. Self catering rooms are excellent.

Overall a good experience. Great bedroom, good view and facilities. Staff overall is not trained for a 4star service. One receptionist in particular, was so rude, I wanted to speak to her. Breakfast service is not that good either. Cleaning and room service's are great!

Stayed for 5 nights. We're a couple with 3 little kids. We booked the 2 bedroom apartment and it was spacious with 2 bathrooms, a big living room and magnificent views. Service is great and the facilities are very functional. The indoor pool is a plus.

First time at this hotel, here for a three day conference. Longer journey than expected from the airport (traffic accident), around 30 minutes via Lisbon centre. First impressions: efficient check in and friendly staff though, unusually, room charges payable in advance. Large apartment/room with twin bedded room, reasonably sized bathroom (tub/WC/basin/bidet/shower over bath) and sitting room (sofa-bed, two armchairs, dining table + 4 chairs) and kitchen area (fridge/m'wave/hob/oven). Both the bedroom and sitting room provided access to a good sized furnished balcony overlooking the exterior pool and the river meeting the ocean beyond. Pretty quiet at night even with balcony door wide open. Very convenient having wifi included in rate throughout the hotel with no password required. Service in the bar was quick, menu nothing special but acceptable and reasonably priced. Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner service for our group - it was OK - plenty of salad options and Setúbal house wine. Restaurant staff very responsive to requests for re-fills, friendly and helpful. Dessert options tempting and delicious as always in Portugal. Coffee invariably good from giant Nespresso machines. Gym didn't tempt but indoor pool did. Late check-out was much appreciated given the alternative of the dreadful Terminal 2 at Lisbon airport.

Hotel on top of a hill, really calm site. Spacy studio with separate bedroom, complete kitchen incl. wash-maschine, 2x TV, lot of wardrobe. WLAN (free) router directly in the room. Modern, attractive bathroom, bathrope, dryer, soaps etc. Huge balcony with nice sunlounger/seats. Phantastic view onto the river Tejo. Very good breakfast. High quality and wide selection of the fitness equipment. (Steam) sauna nice, free pool/jakuzzi. Good parking. Very, very friendly and helpful ladies at the reception! Airport shuttle (ca. 23 Euro), at the weekend free shuttle from/to town centre.

Furniture/wood of doors a little flawed. Breakfast could have a little more variety. Hotel far from urban living, small shops can be found and coffee shops, but hard to find restaurant etc. (a little hint: bus station 300m nearby, bus 011 to "Marques De Pombal").
