But the location is not the best. Our main interest on this trip was to visit Lisbon. The walking distance to the small town of Cascais from the hotel was approx. 30 minutes. Then the train, depending of how many stops, it took about 30 - 40 minutes before it stopped at the station Cais do Sobre in Lisbon. Then , you can take the metro to Rossio station in the middle of Lisbon. The traveling time to and from Lisbon / hotel is 2 - 3 hours.
There is a local shuttle bus at the hotel.. It starts in the morning, but stops at approx. 6 pm. After that you must take the local bus called "buscas" from the railway station to the hotel. In july 2011 this had a price 0.7 Euro pr. ticket from the railwaystation to the hotel.
The hotel Pestana Cascais is very nice. It is a bit "worn". Did not bother us. Nice and clean. The apartment and balcony was not as big as I had expected from reading other reviewers opinion but, ok, no problem. From out 6'th floor apartment we had a very nice view over the Atlantic ocean, watching the cruise ships visiting Lisbon come and go and disappear in the evening fog. Our small kitchen in the department corner was functioning perfectly.
There is an indoor pool, and there is an outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is not heated, so the indoor pool was the best for us :) In the afternoon, the pool could be crowded due to the afternoon heat.
Friendly and helpful staff. Not all of them English speaking. No problem, just use a few words in spanish, and everybody is happy. ..
Great breakfast, scrambled eggs everyday. A good variety in different fruits, and so on.
Recommended, yes indeed.
So, if your intension is to visit Lisbon for a couple of days, this hotel is not the right choice. But, if you just want to stay a couple of day just to relax, then this choice is ok ..
