After a very long Winter, a week in the sun was in order. With the introduction of the ‘Green List’ of countries, our choice of destination was fairly limited. What a lucky find this was! Penha Longa is situated in lush surroundings with extensive views, and we were lucky to have a room with a balcony looking across the golf course and forested hills- a perfect place to enjoy the sunset with a tipple! The rooms were beautifully appointed and were equipped with everything we needed. The housekeeping team were discreetly fabulous, refreshing the room twice daily and even leaving us a chocolate! The breakfast was really great, having gorgeously-presented platters of fresh fruit and cold meats, with a wide choice of cooked meals. We tried 2 of the onsite restaurants and both were excellent- one tasting menu and the other an Asian fusion.... fabulous food in both! Finally, the staff were, without exception, courteous and helpful. Not the cheapest hotel in Portugal but one of the best we’ve stayed in.…
I stayed here over a year ago but didn’t get round to writing a review. It was a 45 minute Uber ride from Lisbon airport. Amazing location set in a former monastery in an area called Sintra to the west of Lisbon. Good decor, good food, amazing bedding, excellent breakfast selection. High end restaurant on site for dinners a short walk from the front reception. I liked this resort as it was not crowded and too busy. Perhaps it’s large size made sure you don’t bump into people often. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Cascais and Estoril on the coast are just a short taxi ride away and offer an amazing choice of sea food restaurants which this part of Portugal is very well known for. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay at this Resort, very child friendly. The golf and the surroundings are amazing in a region full of nature and history. Service is really good with a lot of efforts made by the staff. AMAZING bar with a Gin and Tonic choice I have barely seen. I must say that the structure and rooms needs a serious refurbishment but I have seen already some new rooms with up to date standard . We had a beautiful corner suite on the golf and despite the bad wealthier we really enjoyed the trip in this beautiful par of Portugal.
⚠️ WARNING! Penha Longa catering / Penha Longa Resort, apart from having disappointed us with a terrible service, messing up the event, causing terrible embarrassment for the bride and groom and not complying with the agreed contract; after a whole year they haven't even refunded the emergency deposit, recognised the terrible errors they had nor assumed the terrible loses caused by them, which results on a terrible example towards the great Portuguese hospitality name... Complete disgrace!
This hotel is like my oasis in the mountins. When I need to rest and relax I come here. Every time I come, I never cease to be amazed. This time I was upgraded to the best room I've ever stayed at in the hotel. Ana did an amazing job of making sure that we had everything we need, going above and beyond which included a glass of champagne on arrival. Ana walked us to our room and was so helpful and provided exceptional service. I couldn't be happier. Rita at breakfast even remembered us from the last time we were at the hotel a number of months ago. I couldn't believe her excellent memory and I was grateful for how she looked after us each day. I'll be back in a few weeks, the experience was so good.
