“Hotel Muchaxo”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We are just back from this hotel after a 2 week stay, the staff were so friendly and helpful. The hotel is 9km from Caiscais which is a dis-advantage as you need to get a taxi at night to get back to the hotel. The rooms were very basic and need an update. The food was lovely but there is no place to sit out to eat. The pool area is lovely but not safe for small kids as there are too many steps to get down to it. There is a bus stop outside the door which is helpful but does not make up for the distance. Overall, I would say that once you get used to the decor the place has alot to offer as it is right on a very windy beach with lovely views -either hire a car or budget €10 a night to get a taxi. Tony and the staff made up for everything as after the first night it was like we were with people that we felt we knew for a long time.

Room Tip: We did not request a sea view but got one, ask for one when you get there.

We had a fantastic stay here. Our room faced the pool and was very clean and comfortable. We got to listen to the waves and enjoy the wind coming off of the ocean. All of the staff here is so friendly and treat you like one of the family. The manager, all of the front desk, the housekeeping staff, the servers and bartenders- so friendly, professional, and helpful. It's a short bus ride or taxi (about 7euro) to Cascais, which is lovely. But we spent most of our time at the hotel and Guincho Beach, which was awesome for some surf. The beach is huge and amazing, beautiful mornings and sunsets and there is a bar/restaurant tucked in the point at the far end. Basically a relaxing beachy place and a quick ride into town when you want more variety. We enjoyed breakfast while watching the ocean and having a drink in the lounge in the evening. Fantastic location, wonderful people, couldn't ask for more. We really enjoyed Portugal and this place and will put it on our short list to come back again.

Friendly staff, renovated rooms in the upper level, a stunning location and retro charm make this hotel worth a visit.

Room Tip: Upper level seaside rooms are renovated and have a stunning view. No balcony though.

What a wonderful surprise. This hotel and its new renovations are a pleasure to find on such a beautiful beach. The staff and the accommodations are first rate and we have had an excellent experience here. Don't miss the restaurant, the cappuccinos and the views. All together a great value and a winner for us!

Room Tip: The views overlooking the pool and sunset were perfect for us.

I am having a very romantic time here. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the food is good. It has exceeded my expectations and I would enjoy staying here again. The beach is so nice, and it's a good spot for surfing and kitesurfing. It's just outside of Cascais so you feel like you're not in a crowded tourist destination. It's a great place and the staff is very friendly. I will recommend it to anyone coming to Portugal especially if you enjoy kitesurfing and surfing.

Room Tip: Pick a room upstairs with an ocean view.

We enjoyed our stay in Muchaxo hotel as we had a beautifull opportunity to see how our grandparents were welcome in resorts like this. I do not regret any cent and any minute for staying in this hotel. Steril hotels are boring and are all over the world. I really suggest this hotel for those who do not looking for impersonal environment and are ready for something different.

Nice staff and authentic design, but lack of maintanance will kill this hotel.
Breakfast is not very reach, but ok.

If you order ask for a new wing.
