Hotel Albatroz

Cascais, Estremadura, Portugal


As you’d expect of a big hotel, you can pretty much eat whatever you want whenever you want. Breakfast is served in the dining room - grab the window tables for views of beach and sea. Help yourself to an extensive buffet: freshly-squeezed orange juice, freshly-cut fruit, plates of cheese and ham, a selection of cakes and patisserie, croissants and home-baked bread. There’s bacon and eggs if you fancy something hot.

You can order light meals in the bar and eat on the terrace. It juts out to sea, giving fabulous views, and is one of the loveliest spots in the hotel. There's an extensive menu: salads, soups, risotto, pasta, steaks, omelettes, sandwiches and sinful puddings. The restaurant - wooden floors, smart rugs, glistening chandeliers - serves formal food at lunch and dinner. Come for stuffed crab (a house specialty), sautéed sea bass with fresh cheese gnocchi, then an almond tart served with sweet egg yolk and red fruits.

If you want to eat in less formal surroundings, pop down to Villa Cascais does seriously good modern cooking: foie gras with a mango coulis, sautéed lamb served with strawberries, then crème brûlée with pear sorbet.

If that's not enough choice, Cascais village has everything from simple tascas and pizza parlours to traditional restaurants and posh nosh. Porto Santa Maria is the swankiest place in town. For great seafood, follow the road west along the coast - you’ll find a number of restaurants that overlook the ocean of which Mar du Inferno is considered to be the best.

Save to favouritesPrintMailHotel AlbatrozCascais is a fishing village, once patronised by Portuguese royalty and exiled European kings, now firmly established as Lisbonís summer playground. Grand buildings rise along the beachfront, none more appealing than Hotel Albatroz. Step inside to a lost world of 1950s Riviera chic. Porters swoop upon your luggage; an ocean of marble leads to a wall of glass, beyond which a cliff-top pool glistens in enclosed gardens. The buildings wrap around an inner court: waves lap below, palms soar above, a terraced bar juts out to sea, restaurant windows give huge views down the Estoril coast. [r:PO011:Rooms] are no less alluring. Some overlook the pool, some the sea, some the beach, some all three. Take your pick from old-fashioned splendour, airy contemporary interiors, or the clipped English elegance of the next-door palace. You're in the middle of mazy streets with smart shops waiting to lighten your wallet. Glitzy Estoril is a short promenade away; sublime Sintra with its Pena Palace lies in the hills behind; along the coast is Cabo da Roca, Europe's westernmost point.
