Did not stay there so can't comment on the rooms, etc. but our lunch was exceptional from start to finish. Food, service and setting was beyond compare. It was really, really expensive ($70...

This is a beautiful little boutique hotel right beside the ocean (near the marina) in Cascais. We didn’t stay here and so cannot comment on the rooms. However, while walking by, my wife thought the property looked nice and so we thought we’d stop in for a drink. Little did we know that the drinks, view, and service would be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Planted on the edge of the rocks that rise out of the ocean, Farol Hotel is set in a mansion dating back to 1890, formerly owned by the Count of Cabral. In 2002 an extension was built, creating a superb innovative interface between the 19th century original building and the daring new contemporary structure extending over the rocks and offering superb views of the Atlantic and most picturesque sunsets.Unique in concept, the designer rooms originated from an invitation to select top Portuguese fashion designers to “dress a room”. ... more   less
