Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho
Built on the site of a 17th-century fortress, this luxury hotel boasts a Michelin star award-winning gourmet restaurant and sweeping Atlantic Ocean views. It overlooks the Portuguese surfers’ paradise, Guincho Beach. Stone winding stairs, terracotta tiles and ceilings in exposed bricks create a medieval feel. The central cloister is fitted with velvet sofas and wrought-iron chandeliers. Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho’s rooms are appointed with rich fabrics, dark wood furniture, and paintings with golden frames. Some rooms have private closed balconies with ocean views. The Michelin-starred restaurant has strong Portuguese influences and serves dishes based upon quality national ingredients. Tasting menus are also available. The expansive wine list is hand-picked by an award-winning sommelier. Guests can enjoy Fortaleza do Guincho’s fine dining in the privacy of their room. After a day visiting the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, guests can sip a cocktail from the Fortaleza do Guincho Hotel’s bar, seated on the vast sun terrace overlooking the ocean.

What people say

We loved the atmosphere of an old style fort decorated with the comforts of modern life. We loved our room. It was beautifully decorated with a huge bed and an amazing view to the beach and Serra de Sintra. Our balcony had a lovely chaise-longue perfect for a relaxing reading to the sound of the waves. The staff was very friendly and kind. The hotel is in a stunning location. We were impressed by the attention to detail and the courtesy of the staff. The room was extremely comfortable and the complementary fruit was a welcome addition. This is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay.
