We are staying in a hotel that is perfectly placed for the old town and is close by the station for trips in to Lisbon.
The hotel group has three hotels in Cascais and has recently bought a fourth location which is a grand looking house not far from the main hotel and the Palace which our room is located in. A large room with a lounge area with sofa and TV. The balcony is as grand as we have had and looks over the beach into the Atlantic Ocean. The room is air conditioned, which for an old palace is a godsend given the heat outside.
The room could do with a bit of a makeover but it is by no means scruffy - a freshen up would be a better description.
You walk less than 100 yards to the main hotel which has a great restaurant, bar and a good lounging area with a small pool. Staff are polite and friendly.
The pool loungers could be updated - a couple of broken hinges which could be dangerous - and more attention needs to be paid to cleaning the tables between the loungers. These are small points but which are important if you have 5* status.
All in all a great place and well worth the stay. We would highly recommend it.
People should beware that this is a resort basically now a part of the Lisbon district and the beaches are very busy and consequently noisy. We had no trouble with the noise or the bustle but if it is absolute rest then another location may be justified. If you want a top class hotel close to the action there may be no better in Cascais - thoroughly recommended.
