Just spent a fabulous weekend at The Farol absorbing the peace and calm with an organised yoga weekend. Amazing food, perfect location - yoga in the open air with the sound of the waves!! Lovely hotel and really helpful, courteous and friendly staff. Well recommended. Thank you Maria!

I arrived at the hotel extremely early around 6AM. I called prior my arrival informing that I would be coming early and if an early check in would be possible. They gave me the usual response that they could not guarantee it. When I arrived they unfortunately did not have a room available. The person at the front desk, I...

Had lunch here and the food was fantastic. The views from the patio and deck area are fantastic. Hotel decor is unique and very stylish. Great choices for food, excellent wine and very well priced for a high end hotel. Recommended for food and plan to stay there in the future.

You leave this place feeling ripped off, like many other here have pointed out. Its so overpriced and for me it was a really stressful experience and not relaxing. For me one of the most important things with a hotel is a good nights sleep. This was not possible. It was so noisy from the nightclub and badly isolated between...

We had three perfect days at the Farol Hotel and enjoyed our stay very much. Breakfast choice was small but very good. Very friendly stuff. We also tried the Sushi Restaurant which was a very good desicion - the only thing which haven't been very good was the white wine. To sum up -> we come back 😊👍

We stayed for one week and loved every minute. Beautiful rooms, good food and very good service. And the pool with sea view was fantastic. At one moment the hotel had to start construction work of the rooms and here the manager showed great leadership! She came to us one afternoon and we had a very nice conversation with her....

Stunning location on the water's edge. Really friendly and attentive service, top quality food and beautifully decorated. Very well located near to Cascais. We went with our 2 children, 15 and 10 and all had a fantastic relaxing time. We had very high expectations and they were met. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

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
