This was, without any doubt, the highlight hotel of our tour of Portugal. The palace is amazing, the setting, the beautiful garden, the orange orchard, the beautifully appointed rooms (we had two connecting rooms) the details from the embroidered sheets to the light switches and the antique shoe shine box with the number of the room on it. Everything is real antique (not the fake old/antique you find in remodeled hotels where everything screams cheap.
The renovation has been great and makes you step back in time. When we were there the weather was cool so we couldn’t take advantage of the beautiful terrace with a gorgeous view over the valley and the garden.
It was my sister’s birthday so they sent her flowers to her room and to mine as well, a real touch of class. Service was excellent, plenty of parking right outside the hotel, great location and Sintra is a magic place, not that much the town itself but the beautiful palaces you find there. Do not miss Monserrate Palace very close by, a jewel!
There is space for improvement at the restaurant, it has a beautiful setting, the breakfast is good but the food we had at dinner was very average.
All in all a superb stay, thanks.
