How often can you stay in a fortress on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic and a beautiful beach? My then-fiance (now wife) and I made a quick trip to the Fortaleza do Guincho (2 nights) before continuing to Lisbon for another two nights. Looking back, we wish we would have stayed a third night at the Fortaleza. The hotel is...

Pretty much everything about the Fortaleza Guincho exudes class. The quietly efficient, always helpful staff (who have excellent English language skills) are a big part of its success. Here are a few good examples; despite booking a holiday in a hotel with a restaurant famed for fish dishes, I'm not that keen on challenging sea food. (Before you think me...

An amazing view while you dine so we prefer lunch or summer evenings. The food is exquisite and the wines truly excellent. You are guaranteed an experience you will not forget. It really is a must for "foodies" who want to experience fine dinning with a distinct Portuguese flavour

Set on the Guincho Beach, this unique property is a former fort. Huge waves and crashing surf punctuate the experience of a stay here. We loved the wild view and location above the surf plus the medieval decor of the fort.
