We live quite near to Fortaleza do Guincho, so 20 years after our first (and only) night there, we decided to spend our anniversary with them. First surprise: with no previous knowledge of the celebration, we got a room upgrade. The room is spacious, the view is gorgeous, the ammenities are great (what a nice touch with the Port wine and the "areias"), bed is comfortable and the view is gorgeous. At that time we mentioned the special date and when we thought things could not be better they excelled by treating us to some sparkling wine and big smiles, which made our day even more special. Service excelled throughout (special thanks to Sara) and we left wanting to come back soon.

Hotel's Favourite
Fortaleza do Guincho is the perfect costal hideaway—just a short hop from Lisbon. I love the slightly remote location, the hotel‘s intimate size—and the absolute focus on quality. Rooms are very characteristic for a Fortress—you pretty much feel like entering a different century. Yet all amenities are of the highest standard. Quality, all around, is exceptional. The service is friendly and diligent. All members of staff appear proud to work here. Attention to detail is high. The hotel features a Michelin Star restaurant with an amazing view (recommendation). But food in all outlets is excellent. At the time of my visit the hotel had implemented an excellent Covid-regime, strictly followed by all staff (and most guests-the rest were kindly reminded). I felt very safe. Thank you to both the brilliant GM and all staff for a wonderful stay.

Stayed the night mostly to try the restaurant. It's a very short trip from Lisbon. I was there in August, but still, it was very very very very.... windy. The fortress is gorgeous and so was my balcony room, but to be honest, you could not use the balcony. The views are breathtaking, if you can stand the wind. I am repeating myself, but it is what it is. The outdoor patio was nonetheless very pleasant and somehow protected. The restaurant is superb. the wine selection is out of this world. The setting is unique. Service is excellent. But the one night stay was quite enough for me.

They have a small terrace here, open to non residents, where you can get lunch and drinks. It has a fantastic view over the bay. We stopped here on a bike ride from Cascais. The staff were lovely, and the beers were not expensive.
