Reviewed 12 July 2013

We stayed here in May, and the weather was perfect! The accommodations were much larger than what we were used to in the rest of Europe. The room we had was on the third floor overlooking the pool. From our very large balcony we could see the surf on the other side of the Tagus river. We could also watch the cruise ships come in as well as other harbor traffic. VERY small washer/dryer in the room was nice for cleaning small items. Took forever to dry a pair of jeans. The room also had a small kitchen with fridge. A short 3 Euro cab ride took us to Pingo Dolce, the nearest grocery for snacks to keep in the room. Very clean and comfortable!! The hotel has two pools, inside and outside, a personal movie theatre (its a DVD on a big screen and the movies are a little dated, but the kids loved it!), a tennis court (could use a little TLC), a bar and restaurant. The food is traditional Portuguese fare and quite good. The breakfast buffet is huge with lots of fruit, pastries and traditional fare. Cab fare to downtown was around 8 Euro.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool. Definitely worth it!!! The view from the other side was less tha...

We spent 12 days in a very nice and quiet hotel, well suited for family vacation.
We had a nice very big apartment with a huge balcony and seaview. We would recommend to hire a car during the stay, its easy to go to both Lisbon and Cascais.

A very good stay at the Solplay... We booked a two person studio.. and it was very good. A very big balcony....evertything perfect!
The only "but" is the pillows...... too light/soft... but this is our opinion.

For a city-trip.. a little from the center, but you can take the hotel-bus in the morning, and take a taxi back to the hotel...

We liked our stay very much ! When visiting Lisboa, we will again stay in this beautiful hotel with very reasonably prices!

Stayed for a week during the Rotary international conference. Rooms clean and well maintained. View from balcony very good. Breakfast satisfactory.Restaurant menu could be a bit better with a few more options. Front desk staff very helpful. Only problem is a long way from down town Lisbon and transport can be a problem if you don't have a car

The hotel is near enough to the city for taxis to be affordable but far out enough if you want peace and quiet after a day sightseeing in the city. The hotel offers a fixed price taxi service to various destinations. Alternatively reception staff will ring a local taxi - we never had to wait more than five minutes for a taxi and it cost between €13 and €20 for a taxi depending on where we were going in the city. There are a large number of taxis in Lisbon so it is easy to get a taxi back to the hotel - though it is a good idea to bring the name and address of the hotel with you.
The hotels facilities are great and every area of the hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff were very helpful and efficient. There was a good selection of food at breakfast.

We stayed Solplay Linda-a-Velha in early June 2013. This was our third return visit. Best option if budget can stretch is one bedroom and separate living cum kitchen area. Kitchen has fridge freezer, cooker and washing machine. One has to ask for iron and board. Pity some bulky items that would not be used up in a week’s stay are not passed from last visitor on such as washing powder, salt and cooking oil.
Large sized balcony but can be windy, the ones facing the pool less so. Great pool area but water cold in June try the indoor pool.
TV had a few English sat programs. Breakfast great coffee
We used the bus to commute. The hotel is located right at the edge of the Lisbon bus service. The local vimeca company will get you to Lisbon bus 11 or Alges but does not appear to have a daily 24 hour ticket. We walked to the far end of Av 25 de Abril, past Lidel to use the Carris bus service which has the daily 24 hour ticket usable in Lisbon. The ticket can be bought in the newsagents / Lotto shop (closed Sundays) on Av Dom Pedro about six minutes from hotel. The clock does not start ticking till the ticket is first swiped on the bus / metro
The Carris bus stop to and from Lisbon is on Alameda Antonio Sergio just after the second roundabout
The route of the 751 is Linda-a-Velha - Alges – Blem (change here for tram 15E to Central area of Lisbon – the Parc Comercio
The route of the 748 is Linda-a-Velha - Marquês Pombal (weekdays only and excl public holidays so the 751 is then the only option)
The 24 hour ticket has risen to €6 in 2013 but that gets a return to Lisbon, use of the metro, Carris bus, and the trams both modern and the little old ones within Lisbon.
One little tram that brings you up the steep climb to Castelo de São Jorge – this round trip in itself costs €2.60 without the daily ticket – it’s just about impossible to walk up the steep hills.
In June the hotel provided a fee bus at 9.30 to Lisbon Marquês Pombal - we used this once and got the Carris bus back.
We dined out in the restaurant A Grelha. Walk from the hotel to Av Dom Pedro proceed to the second last road on right hand side of Av Dom Pedro turn right and restaurant in in front of you on Rue Anteron de Quental. Search using Google street view – it’s a maze on first visit
They do great deals on a full chicken and chips for two. The chicken is cooked within sight on a large charcoal fire. The best is black pork steaks, if available on the day. There is no English menu but one waiter speaks English and one can always select from the raw meat and fish displayed in the fridge which is viewable from outside as one enters. This place is a step above the typical charcoal chicken restaurant so its well worth moving up a price notch and selecting great beef, pork or veal steaks and wine a selected by the waiter rather than the house wine. A bit of a walk but worth it
All Portuguese restaurants charge for bread, butter, cheese, olives that are place on table and eaten by diners. No big deal but they can add unnecessary expense since portions are typically large
Av Dom Pedro contains two supermarkets and a butchers so once should get all food / drink supplies without walking to the main street Av 25 de Abril, to shop in Pingo Douche or Lidel. The is also a Continent supermarket on the way to Alges – 12 mins walk.
In summary one needs a car or be prepared to walk to get the best out of staying Solplay

Besides a fantastic view over Tagus river, I has upgraded in the room and placed in a double room apartment, with full kitchnette, and king size balcony with view to Tagus River and April25th Brigde. It has all perfect conditions for a relaxed stay, with full Spa facilities (full body treatment + pool + jacuzzi + sauna + turkish bath + gym). Fair enough breakfast. Free internet rooms and free indoor parking. More than words, I can show you some pics. It's a lovely hotel. Loved it all. Shame the weather, was no sun at all to try outside pool.

Room Tip: Tagus river viewside
