I went to Oeiras by train looking for the hotel, as it is descibed by Expedia as being there. It is not there at all. It is actually midway between two stations Pacos de Arcos and Caxias on the yellow train line from Lisbon towards Cascais (Cais do Sodre), about a ten minute walk from each. The location right on the sea is superb and a room with a sea view is highly recommended. The rooms are special, nice and spacious, as you have an additional living room with an electric kettle, fridge and dining table. There was masses of hot water at all times and the bed was comfortable. The staff were delightful, very friendly and kind and bended over backwards to be helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent and we met people locally who knew all about it. It has a good reputation locally. The buffet breakfast was also excellent and the coffee very good. There was lots of food catering for everyone. Luigi, our waiter was charming and helpful. He gave us very good walking directions to the tennis, the Portugal Open in Jamor. It was the perfect location for it. We will definitely be going back there! Excellent value for money and very enjoyable experience.
