Direttamente sull'oceano con vista incantevole

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: la location - ma in particolare la gentilezza e disponibilità del personale
Cons: avendo soggiornato per una notte sola e per essere rientrati in hotel a tarda ora non ho rilevato nessun aspetto in particolare da migliorare.........
Location: la posizione è ottima --a ridosso del mare con camere vista oceano- davvero incantevole................
Purtroppo all'arrivo abbiamo avuto un problema sanitario grave per una persona (frattura di una gamba) è successo un'ora prima di essere in Hotel - subito il personale si è dimostrato molto disponibile e premuroso contattando un'ospedale a Lisbona facendo arrivare un'autoambulanza per il trasporto del ferito quindi per il resto del gruppo essendo già tardi come orario circa le 22 ha fatto riaprire le cucine servendo la cena (Ottima con pesce fresco e quant'altro) e facendoci ritrovare al nostro rientro dall'ospedale un vassoio con cibo assortito (formaggi-pesce etc.) grazie ancora .....

Surferparadies

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: Die Lage
Cons: Frühstück
Location: Direkt am Strand, Mietwagen unbedingt zu empfehlen. Am Strand gibt es keine Einkaufsmöglichkeit.
Das Hotel liegt traumhaft am Atlantik. Es ist etwas in die Jahre gekommen aber gut gepflegt. Die Zimmer sind schön und auch ausreichend groß. Personal absolut bemüht. Lediglich beim Frühstück gibt es Kritik. Es gibt zwar verschiedene Brotsorten und auch Wurst, Käse und Obst, aber jeden Tag die gleiche Auswahl. Wenn man zum Beispiel Eier mit Speck möchte ist ein Preis von 6,50€ aus meiner Sicht übertrieben.

Nice hotel close to the beach

nice hotel right on the beach

Posted Sep 4, 2016
Cons: The toilet brush is screwed to the wall immediately below the toilet paper dispenser, so if you unroll the toilet paper too much, it touches the brush
Location: Sintra is a great city with so many old palaces and interesting shops to look at. Parking there is horrendous though we did manage to find some free.
This is a nice hotel, but seems a little run down. The sliding doors did not close in our room and the safe had been pulled off the wall. They very kindly moved us to another room with a welcome upgrade, but the sliding doors here also were difficult to lock. The towels are very thin and you have to rent a towel for the pool (3.5 euros). The shower has a shower curtain which would not stay put and kept blowing onto me-- didn't like to think of all the other bodies it had touched. The lift is tiny and slow. The breakfast was very nice, with a selection of meat, cheese, cereal, fruit, bread and pastries. The view from the rooms and the restaurants is of the sea, which is wonderful, always changing, always entertaining with surfers all day long. The beach is right next door and it's a nice beach, good for surfing, with some pretty rocks to one side. Staff in the restaurant are very warm. It's nice to have free parking at the hotel.

Fantastic setting and views

Posted Aug 31, 2016
Pros: The setting, the pool, the public areas were very pleasant to sit in. The barman is extremely friendly.
Cons: Better wi-fi access. A few additional channels on the TV.
Location: Great beaches - Sintra is nearby and is a fantastic place to visit. No cashpoint or shop on the beach - so plan ahead.
The hotel is set above a sweeping beach and all the rooms have got a sea view over the 100 metre pool and sea front. It's a really lovely experience to stay there and simply sit and watch the waves. The weather is unique. Most mornings start very cloudy and overcast but on each day the sun had broken through by about 11.00, so be patient.

Really nice location

Posted Aug 23, 2016
Well, the hotel is by the ocean what makes really hard to not make everyone happy. But the hotel needs a serious suite renovation, bathtubs are in horrible shape and the tiles too. Staff were nice. Food was ok. Overall you pay only to be at the beach and the pool, the priciest hotel we have stayed in Portugal and the worst one.

Tolles Hotel direkt am Strand

Posted Jul 27, 2016
Pros: Der Pool und abends der Blick auf das Meer beim Abendessen :-)
Cons: Wie oben beschrieben, vielleicht mal die Teppiche durchsaugen und die Fensterscheiben putzen. ;-)
Location: Sintra, Bus fährt direkt am Hotel los. Hop-on hop off fährt auch zum Cabo Roca. In der Nähe einige Restaurants. Surfschulen gibt es auch am Strand.
Wir hatte eines der Superior-Zimmer oben, alles neu renoviert. Sehr schick. Leider wurde nie richtig durchgesaugt, nur gefegt und in den Teppichen waren immer Krümel und Sand. Aber okay, damit kann man leben. Wir hatten nur mit Frühstück gebucht. Es war von Allem immer reichlich da. Ab und zu haben wir auch unser Abendessen im Hotel eingenommen und alles was wir bestellt hatten, schmeckte jedes Mal sehr lecker. Der Pool ist natürlich das Highlight, auch wenn er ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen ist. Alle Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Leider war der Atlantik dieses Jahr sehr kalt, baden gehen war kein Vergnügen. Aber zum Surfen oder Bodyboarden perfekt.

The ocean view

Posted Jul 19, 2016
Pros: The view from the room. Location on the beach.
Cons: Air conditioning not cool enough and the beds are rather o the firm side.
Location: Location is ideal o ly 15 or 20 min from sintra. Public bus stop near the hotel. There is also a hop on hop off bus that stops there.
The room is basic but clean and comfortable. The view is exceptional. Pleasant walks along the beach just at the hotel's doorstep. A great relaxing escape after all that sightseeing.
