      The staff are just lovely. They do all they can to make your stay as nice as possible. We have stayed there twice before and loved it each time.. We love the pool area...the day beds by the pool are so comfy. The breakfast is amazing too!

      I loved the location perched on a cliff edge with stunning views out to sea. Our room had a lovely terrace which opened out to grass land and was really mice and private - perfect for sitting on the deck chair early morning and watching the sun come up. We stayed early in the season so the hotel was very tranquil and relaxing. The service was fantastic - really friendly staff and very helpful. I will definitely be going back.

      The only thing I would probably say for improvement would be the shower in our bathroom. I thought this could have been separate to the bath and a bigger head to the shower.

      The location is excellent and the design of the hotel is very nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great.

      Unfortunately the management is not that of a five star hotel. The pool area was not well managed (umbrellas had to be opened ourselves, daybeds were not set up, restrooms by the pool not really clean and out of paper), service was not very attentive and the luggage had to be carried to the room ourselves although we checked in and left it with the concierge for some hours. All these things were not really bad and we absolutely enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place, but with a little more attention to service and detail the hotel could be so much more!!!

      The staff were great and very helpful. They certainly made our stay at the Farol hotel a pleasurable experience. The location is also amazing.

      We got the impression the hotel has only recently re-opened for the season so the rooms were a little musky and there was a drainage problem. As the hotel is a very expensive 'Design Hotel' we didn't expect to encounter thes issues. Having said that, it didn't dampen our too much experience.

      Unbelivable staff, design and... location, location, location!

      Position of hotel good.

      Front desk staff not very welcoming, laundrey taken from room without form being filled in, overcharged at poolside bar, ordered taxi to take to airport and got private hire car at double price without being asked, too many "outside" functions, such as weddings disrupting guests. Room small. This hotel is overrate and overpriced.

    • Group of friends

      The location and being a boutique hotel, was small and friendly. The staff were eager to be helpful and made you welcome.

      It's been operating for approx 8 years and could use an upgrade. It was also expensive for what it offered and even charged 3euro for each coffee in your room.

      Just stayed here for 5 nights...beautiful boutique style hotel with modern design yet still has all the original features of the old building. The pool area is fabulous...the view out over the rocks and the sea is amazing and its very relaxing to sit out all day and watch the sun go down. The restaurant for breakfast is really good again with spectacular views out to sea. Dinner is a must as the food is 5* in the restaurant. Service in the hotel is excellent whether at the pool, bar, restaurant. Location to Cascais is perfect as the hotel is located right beside the marina which has some lovely restaurants to visit and its less than 10 minutes stroll into Cascais. Only negative is that our bathroom was tiny..small complaint though!

      Absolutely stunning location with attentive, helpful staff and a very relaxed atmosphere. Expensive but pure bliss lounging on their four-poster sunbeds, wine glass in hand, watching the crashing Atlantic waves. Also, great base for easy visits to Lisbon (by train) and Sintra (by bus).

    • Older travelers

      Some of the staff were very accommodating and friendly, others were not. A smile goes a long way, and some could use coaching in that area. What makes the hotel unique is it's location - but that alone, is not worth the price.

      I stayed at the Farol Hotel 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. I feel it's gone downhill since that last stay in the following areas: 1) helpfulness of staff, 2) cleanliness of room - I.E. bathroom floor had not been mopped the whole time we were there, 3) carpets in hallways are worn - needs some "sprucing up" 4) some breakfast staff were slow, inefficient and others were great - very inconsistent, 5) definitely not worth the price!!!

      Quiet and relaxing. From our hotel room, we could only hear the sound of the sea. The pool and terrace overlook the sea, with no traffic noise. It's a short walk into the centre of Cascais, and then a 30 minute train journey into Lisbon, so you can still do lots of activities and then relax at the hotel.

      We were in one of the design rooms, which, although it was lovely aesthetically, the designer hadn't taken into account practicality, especially in the bathroom. But this really was a minor point.

    • Group of friends

      We thought it was one of the nicest hotels we'd stayed in. Its position is breath-taking and our room had a lovely view. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly- a very well-run hotel. We had a lovely few days and it is very easy to get into Lisbon.

    • Couple

      The views are great--the non seaview rooms are still beautiful

      The staff's hospitality was hit or miss. Some went out of their way to be helpful but most were pretentious and far from obliging.

    • Group of friends
      5.8

      The hotel has a dramatic view over the Atlantic but there is a pool so no need Ro go swimming in the freezing sea. It's very relaxing and the bar stays open until 2!

      The sushi restaurant is rather new so there are a few teething problems with at least a 90 minute wait but I am sure this will be rectified soon. Some of the rooms have low lying beams so beware if you are tall.
