The downstairs lobby is huge, and includes a rental desk for bikes and surfboards, a concierge who can help with surf lessons, horse riding, hiking and more. There’s also a couple of eating areas, and a huge outdoor space including a gigantic pool surrounded by deckchairs.
The bed was maybe the biggest bed I’ve ever seen, so (naturally) we jumped on it for a couple of minutes. The toilet was even noteworthy, it had buttons along the side for different settings of washing and drying. Hilarious!
I had seared tuna, Bex had the fish, and we shared a salted caramel chocolate mousse that was, for lack of a cooler word, delectable. The waiter also made me a special glass of sangria with all my favourite flavours; it had white wine, passionfruit, orange, strawberry and mint. Deeelish.
If I had three days I would love to try out a horse trek, a cycling track, enjoy some time at the coast, treat myself to a balneotherapy session, venture into Cascais for some food and try out the Verbasca restaurant at the on-site golf course.
It would be the perfect place to stay for a family, couple or friends looking for a resort experience; but it’s still close enough to Lisbon to easily pop into the hustle and bustle for some city fun. Definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay on the coast!
