Ranked #14 of 40 Hotels in Cascais
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The hotel looks like its near the beach but access is blocked and you have to walk a long way around. Its also a long way out of Cascais to walk. The breakfasts were awful but the rooms were clean and the pool was nice. I felt a bit isolated out in this area but there were one or two nice restaurants at the local cliffs tops. Best thing to do here is hire a free bike and take it all along the coast and back but don't leave it unattended as people think they are anybodies!

Stayed at the Pestana Cascais for 8 nights in June 2014. All in all I cannot complain about the place.

We arrived at 11am. On booking I had said this and asked could our room be ready. Sure enough, it was which was great given we have been up since 4.30am.

The room itself was excellent. Top floor on the poolside so we had a lovely view out over the cliff. We were high enough that any noise from the pool was not a problem and far enough from the road as well.

Also on booking I mentioned we would be celebrating our wedding anniversary while staying (to try and get the best room possible). On our first evening, there was a knock at the door. It was a bottle of bubbly and a few plates of fresh fruit from the hotel for our anniversary. This was an excellent, and unnecessary touch. Full marks there.

Other comments
- If you are looking for a lively hotel the Pestana is not it. It suited our lazy needs perfectly, but would not be for everybody.

- The hotel is approx 2 miles or so outside Cascais town. There is a nice coast walk which takes about 30-35 mins. Might be shorter other ways, but never checked.

- There is an hourly bus from 9am to 6pm from the hotel to the bus station in the town and returns at 20 past the hour. Its a shame the last one is at 6pm as we would have liked to head out around 8 most evenings, but to balance that there is a public bus close by which is only €1 per person.

- The main gripe I had was breakfast. It was poor and didn't seem to be the freshest. It did the job though.

- Good free wifi

- Pool area was nice and clean and pretty quiet. Nice bar poolside as well. The Sauna was lovely. My wife used the gym a few times also and was happy with the treadmill and stepper machines.

- The staff were excellent. Every one of them was attentive and friendly, had good english and genuinely seem to care whether you had a good day or not. Pity I cannot remember the names, but they all get 100% from me anyway.

- It is to be warned that the hotel is not central so if you are out and about in the evening time, you will be needing taxis every time. The cost is anything from €4.50 - €6 depending on traffic.

- The room we had was excellent too. Plenty big. Possibly a bit dated, but clean and airy. The bed was quite comfortable and very big. I think it may have been 2 single together but there was a mattress cover to join them. The shower was good and powerful. The rooms were cleaned daily to a great standard. The fridge in the room is not the most powerful but did the job. There is a hob if you want to cook in the room also.


So thats it. Not happy to be home. Would we return to the Pestana? Absoluetly yes

Stayed at the Pestana in June 2014. Room was lovely and clean and the bed was the most comfortable ever slept so well with good quiet A/C and blackout curtains. Little kitchenette and fridge very handy.
Amazing views from balcony.
2 pools inside and out which is nice if weather not the best also access to spa facilities.
Staff were amazing so helpful from reception bar staff and the lovely lady who cleaned our room daily. Also a shuttle bus would pick up from hotel to Cascais town every hour till 6pm and back free of charge excellent service.
Now a couple of negatives:-
Hotel needs a little updating looks very 80's sunbeds were in need of TLC.
Only had breakfast was nice but nothing that wow. This is not a complaint I came down for breakfast daily so was not that bad.
I would definitely come back to this hotel x

Staff , room, service, facilities excellent but not a lot in the area. Fabulous grounds and rooms spacious and good to have fridge and hob. One major downfall .... Evening buffet. Tiny choice and uninspiring food. Very very disappointing. Breakfast however was excellent.

I stayed in the Pestana late April early May. I travelled with a friend and we were looking for a nice quiet relaxing holiday. The hotel met all our expectations of a 4 star hotel in Portugal. The location is very good with a lovely walk along the promenade to Cascais. Cascais itself is a really lovely resort with very nice restaurants we especially liked Hemingway and a very nice one near the hotel called Os prazares da Carne.A trip to Sintra is a must and Lisbon is just a short train journey away. The beach in Estoril is fabulous and a lovely walk from Cascais orif really lazy a 4 min train journey.

I had a one week stay at this resort and I must say it has been one of the best spent weeks of my vacations, ever.
I specifically loved the fact that the staff was very friendly and heplful, without making you feel uncomfortable ( as I have eperienced in other hotels).
I sincerely reccomend it, it is great for any kind of trips: business, family(great time at the pool) or just enjoying time with your friends.

Room Tip: Fact: the beds are huge and extremely comfortable! Enjoy
