Beautiful view of the sea

Posted Oct 12, 2014
We got a room with the sea view and that was great, as the view was incredible. The bathroom could use some work, but the room was comfortable and clean overall.

Hotel in excellent location by the beach

Posted Sep 1, 2014
The hotel had lovely views and the staff were extremely helpful. It looked like some upgrade had been made to the bedrooms and breakfast room but unfortunately the rest of the hotel needed some serious updating. The pool area especially looked very run down but had wonderful views of the sea.

A week in Muchaxo Hotel, Cascais/Guincho

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: .The cool breeze around the pool.
Cons: The pool is large and outdoors filled with sea water. It is cleaned daily but the inner walls are dark and dirty and for some reason never cleaned.
Location: Cascais is the best place to shop and eat at a reasonable price. Local hotels are much to expensive. Take the train from Cascais to Lisbon.
Arrangement went well but finding the hotel with TomTom was a nightmare. It ios licated in Cuincho despite the address being in Cascais. The hotel directions are vague therefore use the GPS settings not the Cascais postal code, i.e. Pria do Guincho - 38.729355,-9.474568 NOT 2750!! The hotel could do with a general makeover. The reception, bar are dark brown and musky in colour and smell. The refurbished bedrooms facing the sea and the breakfast bedrooms are clean, modern and tidy. Maintenance is low key, with some paint peeling off the walls and bathrooms with rusty nails and many ols screw holes filled in. The beds are big, clean and comfy, the wooden floors rather dusty. TV is ok rather small and located high on the wall. International channels includes BBC World and CNN. Internet reception is none existent in the bedrooms but excellent near the reception and main entrance, it is however rather unreliable and slow when there are too many accessing it. Car parking is a nightmare, since the hotel is located to such a popular beach, guests however do have preferential treatment in parking amongst the chaos of visitors and cars attempting to access the beach

Awful, avoid like a contagious disease.

Posted Feb 23, 2014
Looks nothing like the pictures, which must've been taken at least 25 years ago...sold as a 4 star hotel, but resembles a scene from a 1970's horror movie, unclean, lethargic customer service, poor yet over priced food & the whole hotel smells like sewage. If you want to be by an average beach then fine, but you may as well pitch up a tent or sleep rough. My wife & I stayed one night then moved to the Corinthia hotel which was Amazing.

great location for surfing/beach. great value

Posted Oct 29, 2012
Pros: location by beach and surf facilities
Cons: Decor
Beautiful location with beach views from most angles. Check out the surf when eating breakfast. Friendly staff with restaurant and bar. Although most of hotel is dated from 70's era it adds to its charm. Our rooms were modern and clean.there is a good surf shop under the hotel where you can book lessons.
