I went there with my wife in December, room had a great view to the beach. The place is perfect for surf lovers and for jogging in the morning. Also the fire place gives a good atmosphere, especially in winter.

We stayed at Muchaxo for 10 enjoyable day's, We had a renovated room facing the beach, the room was spacious and had everything you needed. Pool was a plus when the afternoon wind got up, breakfast was included which is pretty basic but sufficient. Staff were friendly and

The location is fantastic at Guincho beat him, but the place needs serious improvement. You can almost feel like it is 1970. The breakfast was simple, short on options but tasty. The parking can be a problem in summer.

I have stayed here before around 13years ago. Little has changed in that time. In some ways that's a good thing other ways not so good. The rooms are clean and well presented, housekeeping is also spot on. Sadly not much else has moved with the times. The bars are tired looking

Sorry ... only now saw the question. The place was clean for sure but it is coastal shabby in appearance ... meaning rust, weather beaten and generally not chic. It is clean. We enjoyed it. The location is 1st class. Fabulous beach. Restaurant food was more goodish home cooking than expected restaurant flair but again GOOD and no complaints. Set your expectations reasonably and and you will have a good time. Consider also that this location is NOT Cascais central and you will need to drive to town.

Is there public transport to hotel - Bus to Hotel or train to Cascais ?
"water views are great but loud with the wind and the waves. Further out rooms have no wifi unfortunately as the signal is too weak."
"Definitely get a sea view if you can!"
"get an room with a view of the ocean"
"Only with ocean view on the newer wing."
"Beach View rooms are best. Possibly second floor are higher standard."
US$66 - US$134 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
