We stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was perfect. They arranged a complementary pick-up from the airport and, as we arrived very early due to problems with TAP, they rustled up a lovely breakfast. The room was elegant, spacious and had wonderful views over the Tagus. The staff were brilliant. And the neighbourhood was fascinating. There is no dinner in the hotel but there are plenty of cheap authentic restaurants in easy walking distance. Altogether a wonderful experience.

Having read reviews, I wondered if the sea view rooms really worth the extra cash (pretty much double) but I am so glad I didn't spend the extra. My room facing the street (203) was lovely, white wooden floor, blue décor and it had a huge balcony that was in the sun in the afternoon and evenings, unlike the rooms that faced the sea.
The pool area was very nice, with comfy sunbeds and cabanas (Brits, please don't bring your own towels - use the plush white ones provided! :) ). The pool water was at the glacial end of the scale, although useful for cooling down.
The staff were generally very hospitable; my friend sprained her foot out at a restaurant and they were running round after her with ice and someone even went to the pharmacy for her.

We love Portugal but have only visited the Algarve, so we looked at Cascais and selected the Quinta da Marinha from other reviews. It was a little tricky to find as it is tucked away in a residential area about 10 mins from the town centre, so a car is essential. On arrival we were directed to another reception building as we had booked in to a villa and after another trip around we eventually arrived at our ultimate destination the Onyria Hotel (all a bit confusing). Nevertheless, we settled in, our villa was two bedroomed on two levels, with 3 shower/bathrooms. The facilities were all that we expect from a 5 star resort, with the 26th rated golf course in mainland Europe, so all very acceptable. The staff were exceptional, very friendly, all spoke very good English. The breakfast was fantastic, and the restaurant converted into a very good Italian in the evenings. There is also a separate seafood restaurant (Monte Mar) which is a short mini bus drive away (hotel provided) which is outstanding. All in all, we were so impressed that we scraped our intended trip in to Lisbon as we were enjoying ourselves so much. If you want a break from the Algarve, give this a go, you will not be disappointed.
