The staff was so friendly and accommodating! The beaches on both sides of the hotel were lovely. Really enjoyed the dune walk across the street and taking the complimentary bikes on the bike path. Fantastic food, bountiful included breakfast, interesting architecture (former 17th century fortress), helpful concierge, gorgeous views. Highly recommend this property!

It's a perfect place for a quiet get away by the ocean and you're a short taxi ride from downtown Cascais and only about 30 mins from Lisboa. I like to spend the days in the city but a quiet oasis to come home to is really nice.

Hotel Fortoleza has a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean and the numerous nearby beaches. From our room, we could see the Cabo da Roca (the most western point in mainland Europe.) The dining rooms all have fabulous views of the beach and we enjoyed some spectacular views watching the fog roll in, glorious sunsets, and dozens of kite surfers. Most importantly, the staff is very helpful and eager to make your stay pleasant. Be aware that the location is quite remote, but there are buses into Cascais and Sintra. We will return.

Really unique experience, a windswept historic fort with views all around. Free bikes to ride and the most generous and elegant breakfast I’ve ever had.
