We located this hotel on the Ritz Carlton website. As expected, the room and quiet, attentive service were great. The setting is magnificent inside a national park outside Lisbon. The grounds are gorgeous and manicured. The monastery and church buildings on the grounds cannot be missed. But what impressed us most were the absolutely wonderful staff. The Concierge Desk went...

We stayed for a couple of nights in the resort during a conference. Top notch rooms with top quality service and nice interior design. Although the hotel is big, rooms are quiet. Multiple good restaurants with dining options and nice outside dining spaces. Great sports facilities and half a hour from Lisbon downtown.

The hotel is a beautiful property up in the hills of Sintra but is too far from everything. You need a car or have to get cabs to go everywhere. The golf course and restaurants are really good.

Great grounds, rooms and service. If you love golf it looked great although there was a a lot groups going out. I did not play so I can not comment on the play. Staff friendly. Good for a few day stay then move on. Make sure you check out the Forrest and the castles in the area way cool.

Meeting rooms and restaurants are fantastic, great service. Set in the mountains with beautiful views. Pools are very nice as well as the surrounding areas of the pool.
