This is a beautiful little boutique hotel right beside the ocean (near the marina) in Cascais. We didn’t stay here and so cannot comment on the rooms. However, while walking by, my wife thought the property looked nice and so we thought we’d stop in for a drink. Little did we know that the drinks, view, and service would be so good that one drink would turn into many. :-) Our waiter/bartender, Riccardo, was the best part of the experience. He was extremely friendly, professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. The bar has a great gin and tonic menu with specialty gins, tonics, and extra ingredients. The beefeater 24 (Beefeater 24, 1724 tonic, fresh ginger, and honey) was delicious and refreshing, as was the Gin Mare with fever tree tonic, mint, and red currents (which Riccardo made off the menu). Also, upon learning that this was our first trip to Portugal and only our second night in the country, Riccardo made a special point of introducing us to some port wine styles and ages. We really had an unexpectedly fun and remarkable few hours at the Farol.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Planted on the edge of the rocks that rise out of the ocean, Farol Hotel is set in a mansion dating back to 1890, formerly owned by the Count of Cabral. In 2002 an extension was built, creating a superb innovative interface between the 19th century original building and the daring new contemporary structure extending over the rocks and offering superb views of the Atlantic and most picturesque sunsets.Unique in concept, the designer rooms originated from an invitation to select top Portuguese fashion designers to “dress a room”. ... more less
