My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful 2-week holiday in Cascais. We stayed in the Hotel Baia and were delighted with our choice of accommodation. The hotel location is the best in Cascais and is right in the centre of all that Cascais has to offer (beaches, shops, restaurants, bus, train etc...)
We really enjoyed this hotel and found it to be one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in. The housekeeping was wonderful and our sheets and towels were changed daily. The housekeeping staff were very attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed.
The reception staff in the hotel are very friendly and are always willing to offer tips and advice to enhance your stay in Cascais. We stayed on a B & B basis and it was perfect. The breakfast is very good with a fine selection of hot and cold foods, breads, yoghurts and pastries. Breakfast finishes at 10 but the staff are so relaxed and amenable that they have no problem with you sitting over your breakfast for those extra few minutes (nobody rushes you out the door).
Yes the hotel has no wifi in the rooms but we did not find that to be a problem. One of the perks of going on holidays is that you don't need to be stuck to your phone/internet. There is very good wifi in the lobby and that, in my opinion is sufficient.
The pool and pool bar are very nice. The views from the top floor deck are beautiful and the couches are great for chilling out in the sun. I would however recommend that the hotel purchase more sunbeds or stops people from reserving loungers with towels. In our whole 2-week stay we never managed to get a sun lounger! That didn't really bother us as the beach is just across the road but some people might not be happy with this.
We brought our own travel kettle with us as we read that there was no kettle in the room. I think that the hotel should invest in kettles and fridges for each room (as part of the ongoing refurbishments) as I feel that these are necessities in a hotel room.
Overall, a fantastic stay in a beautiful hotel. WHEN we return to Cascais we will definitely stay in the Hotel Baia again. It is great value for money and you will not find a hotel in a better location. Keep up the good work and thanks for the bottle of Sparkling Wine (as a gesture for our wedding anniversary).
