This was our first hotel during a two week vacation. The property is nice and has free parking, but it is very hard to find. Too far away from "downtown" Sintra to walk (and it would probably be too dangerous after dark - very narrow roads). The booking we had made was apparently only for one - and they didn't want to give us the room we had reserved, but tried to "up sell" us to two much more expensive rooms. Given that we had been traveling for a long period at this point, the original room was fine, especially since they were already changing E200 for it. However, given that there were two of us, suddenly the price jumped to E240.
The one good thing was that the breakfast buffet was included in the rate, which we hadn't expected. The breakfast was extensive and delicious - definitely the best part of the visit. Lots of meats, cheese, good bread selections, fresh local yogurt, and lots of fruit - including ripe mango.
Even with the breakfast, would not recommend. Too expensive for what you get. And there certainly are nicer properties elsewhere.
