“Charming guesthouse in Cascais”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

Casa Vela is a beautiful guesthouse in Cascais.

The property is really nice and well kept.
Our room was modern and comfy.

Staff is really kind. Good breakfast.

The only downside is that the city center of Cascais is a bit far away but definitely this was not an issue.

We stayed 1 week (August 10-17) at this hotel. The rooms are named after Portugal's former colonies and spices. It is a very clean and well-looked after hotel. The area around the hotel is very clean and safe, and about 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre. Initially we were in the "India" room, which is quite large and comfortable. But later the manager was able to accomodate us into another room (Peppers), which was smaller but had its own private terrace with a table and chairs. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace and reading. The manager (Jean Paul) is extremely helpful. The breakfast was excellent and from 8.30-11 am. Overall, we were most staisfied with this hotel and the service; and would go back there. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different and have different virtues; some are bigger, some with a private patio o...

We recently spent a fabulous 8 days at Casa Vela and haven't stopped thinking about it since. The location was lovely (helped of course by the great weather). Our room overlooked the pool and the atmosphere was very tranquil and a slow 10 minute stroll to the town centre. Each morning we wandered up to a great breakfast; the scrambled eggs were wonderful and the local portugese tarts a delight! This was made even better by the owner observing that I was wheat intollerant and she was frustrated i had not told her and insisted she would purchase breakfast items especially for me, which they brought out each day in a little basket and I was so pleased about. The gave great restaurant recommendations and like the other recent review our only wish was they only served dinner so we never had to leave. The town of Cascais is touristy but great to wander around including the free bikes you could hire and cycle around the town. If you want a lovely environment with friendly staff in a sunny town then you won't go wrong with Casa Vela in Cascais!

Great in all matters - beautiful interior and exterior design, a special note for the gardens and the pool. Breakfast was excellent. Beautiful neighbourhood, very close to the center. Big thanks to the staff that helped whenever needed. All in all, a special place to stay/relax. Don't miss it if you plan a holiday in Cascais!

Room Tip: Saffron room - beautiful views.

My girlfriend and I came from Dublin to hear based on other tripadvisor reviews. It lived up to the excellent rating and I have never reviewed a hotel on the web before but this one is worth it. If you are travelling to Lisbon / Cascais, this is the place. Not only the facilities but the people here make it a haven, we found it hard to leave the place and go to the beach! If only they provided dinner, we probably never would have left!

Well done and keep it up Casa Vela!

Room Tip: one leading directly to the pool / garden is a great treat!
