This is one hotel that put a Big tick mark to the following:
- Great Room
- Brilliant View
- Amazing location
- Great Service
- Manageable Budget

What more could I ask for! I was in this hotel for a week during a business trip recently and just happened to book it by chance, and boy was I impressed!

This hotel is a great recommendation from me for anyone visiting Lisbon/Sintra/Cascais region, and I am sure you will not be disappointed!

Try to get their sea facing balcony view rooms!

Room Tip: Try to get their sea facing balcony view rooms!

The title here tells you all you need to know, the hotel is in a great spot with stunning views, the staff are hugely friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean and smart but different to anywhere else I've stayed and the food was fantastic.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for, if you can afford a design room you should book one.

I have been working all around Portugal for years; This hotel is unique; These people really love their job and are design passionate; All of the bedrooms are so creative/fresh/original...ask to visit different rooms if possible; Very central in Cascais; Views to the ocean are fantastics; Staff is happy smiling and extremely professional; Don't miss the lunch menu; Authentic cuisine, beautiful decor, with very delicious fish/sea food; Terrace of the restaurant also has a beautiful view at the ocean; And caipirinha at the bar is absolutely awesome; Then I highly recommend THE Farol Design Hotel

After a long flight over from the States, we were looking forward to a hot shower and a nap. Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding with our reservation, and we were without a room. After seeing our disappointment and embarrassment the gentlemen at the front desk, NuNu and Pedro told us it was not a problem. They would take care of us and not to worry. Take care of us they did.
They arrange for us to stay in one of their two suites that overlooked the ocean. It was one of the most impressive views I have ever seen in my entire life. With windows that opened and provided almost a 360 degree view of the water it was amazing. In addition, the room was extremely clean and offered a interesting shower with three different shower heads. To continue our pleasant experience, we were soon presented with a complimentary bottle of champaign to help forget about our long travel and "issues". It was the perfect way to start off our vacation in a beautiful country.
We visited the onsite restaurant to enjoy the fresh sushi; it was a good meal but the service was better. The chef came out and asked how we liked our meal, and also offered us surfing lessons if we were ago be around the next day. Unfortunately we only stayed in this hotel a single night before traveling up to Sintra to stay somewhere else.
Again, to our surprise, Perdro called the front desk at our next hotel to let them know we were coming and to take good care of us. Amazing service from people who made you feel like they really cared about your well being and wanted you to have the best time while visiting.
Stay at this hotel in the corner suite if you are in the area; it will be a great experience!

We visit Cascais a couple of times a year and this is one of our favourite hotels here. The location is great if you don't need a car as you can walk into town in 5 minutes. The hotel is right on the seafront, just rocks between the deck surrounding the pool and the waves, which sometimes crash over the railings onto the deck.
This is an expensive place to stay, 5 star luxury, but the staff are well trained, friendly and attentive.
There are 10 designer rooms, each designed by a different designer. We have stayed in one of the rooms and it was lovely but this visit we had a standard room in the attic on the third floor. The room was large and lovely with a sea view, the bathroom was spacious and comfortable. We were very pleased with the room and had a great stay. If you are tall you will need to watch out for the roof trusses which are a bit low at the foot of the bed.
The pool is salt water, so no red eyes from chlorine, there is a bar and restaurant which serves your every need and a separate sophisticated Sushi bar for something different.

The main restaurant serves great food and has an outside terrace where tables are laid overlooking the sea for breakfast, worth getting up before it closes at 10.30 for a fantastic buffet, they will cook omelette to order if you don't fancy the scrambled or poached egg on offer.

We will be back here again without doubt.
