“World Class Hotel !”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Don't waste any more time looking at any more reviews for hotels in/near Cascais. We've done it all - Our 2nd stay and again in a word "MAGNIFICENT". If you are looking for 5 star facilities, wonderful staff, excellent food/breakfast and a relaxing world class SPA well this is the hotel for you. 10 min walk to Cascais and 20 min taxi from SIntra - well worth a visit! Cascais is beautiful. We stayed for 2 weeks in 2012 with a 1 year old and loved it so much came back for a 6 night stay on our own. Thank you for a memorable stay and look forward to hopefully seeing you again in 2014.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room on 3rd floor - Lovely!

Dear Guests,

It is overwhelming and really gratifying to see how many guests are either repeated guests or are already planning their return trip, as you are, and please forgive us for repeating ourselves, but this is definitely the biggest compliment we can hope for, although we have to admit that being considered the most magnificent hotel in Cascais makes it even more special.

Thank you so much for your review and we look forward to welcoming you again, hopefully soon, to the Grande Real Villa Itália Hotel & SPA.

Kind regards,
Diogo Fonseca e Silva

This hotel was wonderful. We were treated like royalty on our arrival by very friendly and cheery staff, shown to the terrace with some complimentary champers to celebrate our recent marriage. Our room was amazing, stylish, comfortable, very spacious and spotless, with a lovely view. The main terrace was my favourite spot sitting in the lovely sunshine on the cozy sofas. Enjoying snacks, coffees, and lunches. Service was always great. From the salon to the bar, the TV even being tuned to England v Australia rugby match so we could sit in the bar to watch. Breakfast was always yummy. Buffet Stocked with everything you could want to eat and drink.

I was very sad to leave but we had so many happy leisure filled days to remember. Thanks to all at the Grand Real Villa for a lovely honeymoon stay

A totally marvelous hotel! Nothing was unavailable; food terrific and staff superb. I'd love to be there again, soon!!

The rooms were quite large and had beautiful patios. The bath was huge and the shower perfection!! We had a car, and had quick, no stress parking, with the staff helping us with directions, hints for parking and even directions to the pedestrian walkways that were not crowded for shopping.

The only think that could have been better was the weather. However, even this perfect staff couldn't correct that.

Very good hotel with very friendly staff. However the outdoor swimming pool is very cold and there is no indoor swimming pool. When I went to use what I thought was the indoor pool I was advised that it was not a pool but a spa experience that would cost me 20 euros. I was also advised that the steam room was not working. I would recommend this hotel as long as you do not want an indoor swimming pool. I however would not return to this hotel as I would expect an indoor swimming pool, or at least a well heated pool outside in a 5 star hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your review and for mentioning the points that in your opinion could be better.

In fact our outdoor pool has the added value of being salt water, which is only a few hotels added value. Unfortunately it is not sustainable to heat a pool like this. Alternatively we have the experience in the SPA pool, which brings together properties of thalassotherapy. Has the cost of 20 euros because it has the characteristic of being a treatment with healing and preventive qualities, based upon the effectiveness of the properties of seawater and its bio-components.

Thank you for having left your feedback.
Kind regards,
Diogo Fonseca e Silva

We loved this hotel, it really is very special. From our arrival by taxi and the warm welcome we received to the very last goodbyes we loved every minute of it. When we'd been out and were returning to the hotel there was always someone there to say 'Welcome back'. The staff were exceptionately friendly and helpful.
The entrance is spacious and very elegant as are the rooms. We were upgraded to a seascape executive which had a balcony and it was superb. Lots of marble in the bathroom which had bath with shower above plus separate shower cubicle and separate toilet and bidet. Very comfortable beds and amazing choice of pillows.
Breakfast had a large variety of local food and was of excellent quality. The Breakfast Room never felt crowded even when it was full. We didn't eat in the evening, unfortunately didn't seem to find the time to go there but we did have a snack in the bar/terrace overlooking the pool and the sea which was wonderful.
Good location too right on the seafront with walks in either direction - 10 minutes to the town centre and 5 minutes the other way to the Devil's Hole. Right next to a park too. Quiet location.
Would very highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Sea views are worth the extra.

It is a beautiful hotel and worth.staying. we got upgraded when we got there. But worth the wait for room.

Breakfast hot and cold was gorgeous. A bit crazy though if you want something of the menu then you had to ask for it which could take up to 20 mins to arrive.
had no problems getting lounges by the pool. and the spa was lovely.

the only thing that let's the hotel down is that its not halfboard. for the price you pay you would expect it to be. We only ate one night at the hotel cos it was very expensive.there are perfectly good places to eat outside the hotel.

A very pleasant week spent at this hotel in October. The staff are superb, without exception pleasant and helpful. I question the 'heated' swimming pool as I found it unacceptable on the two sunny days we had. The pool really needs heating to be user friendly. The breakfasts were good and the evening restaurant provided tasty food, even if the menu was limited. The hotel location couldn't be better with good walks along the front in both directions.
