The crowd at the hotel consisted of rich euro trash with huge tattoos and Russians smoking. If that is your idea of a fun crowed, this place is for you!
Pros: great location, nice decor, beautiful ocean views, salt water swimming pool
Cons: air conditioning was not working in room and it took management a long time to fix, hotel is expensive and you don't feel you get your money's worth: room has not enough closet space, shower impossible to use while standing, no room to put toiletries in bathroom, no water bottles offered to guests, room doors are hard to open/close, smoking is allowed inside hotel at bar and the smell drifts to upper floors, service at restaurant was average with several mistakes in bill. You should expect more for a 250-300 euro place!

Room Tip: Sea view room nicer. Make sure air conditioning works!

We spend a long weekend here and on the whole had an enjoyable time. Reception / staff were all friendly. The location afforded a great ocean view, as long as you don't mind a 15-20 mins walk into town. Common areas lived up to the "design" tag of the hotel. On the negative side, the bathroom was very dated and didn't match up to the rest of the property. In addition the shower didn't have decent water pressure and sometimes wasn't hot. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was "ok", and could have been improved by the staff clearing unoccupied tables more quickly and restocking the buffet with crockery & food. Ordering early evening drinks in the pool area could be a little hit & miss whilst trying to get waiters attention to place orders. Would we return? Quite probably if we were in the area.

We stayed 2 nights at the end of a tour of Central Portugal at this hotel, primarily to be near the airport for our return home. We almost only stayed one night but are glad we stayed two. The location is superb, on the rocks above Cascais. It is possible to walk into town but we were happy eating in one of the 2 restaurants each night (one being Sushi). The food was excellent, and the service both in the restaurant and at the pool was very friendly and welcoming, although it could be a little slow.

In the full day we had in Cascais we drove over to Sintra to see some of the palaces there, the drive is very picturesque and only 15-20mins. There were good beaches nearby, but right in front of the hotel it was not possible to access the sea, but the view from the seawater pool was superb.

We stayed in a design room with balcony right above the restaurant. We went to bed relatively early both nights and slept soundly without being disturbed by noise from below. We were a little disappointed with the design of the room itself, it contains individual design touches, e.g. lamp shades, but is rather tired and the bathroom is somewhat small compared to other hotels of similar prices. IT is however, very clean and comfortable. The view from our room was of the ocean and made up for any disappointment with the room itself.

Very unique, romantic and stylish place. designer decisions dont interrupt very beautiful nature of the place, You dont notice details just feel how amazing atmosphere is,
Ideal place for romantic escape, but if you need some fun there is quite big night club as well in neighborhood.
Its really different from most of local very traditional hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room coz they are just amazing.

We recently spent five nights at this lovely hotel and would certainly return. The sea views are stunning and our only regret was that we didnt have a balcony room. all booked up well in advance! We ate in the restaurant most nights and the food was generally very good, although I was a little disappointed with the black pork on our final night, rather chewy and flavourless! But the desserts were delicious! Our room was lovely, although it lacked a bedside table on one side which seemed a little strange. The staff were, without exception friendly and helpful and let us leave our car in the car park while we went off to Lisbon for a couple of days. Cascais is a lovely place and if you prefer a small hotel would certainly recommend Farol Design.

Room Tip: specify a sea view room
