The hotel is very suitable for people that like to swim or to walk. It is possible to swim in the ocean but also in the more quiet water of the internal lake. From Foz Do Arelho it is easy to visit the castle of Obidos or the town Caldas da Rainha which offers a daily open market market. The hotel offers a free well protected parking space at walking distance from the beach. The internet works fine but is a little bit unhandy because for each access a new (free of charge) password has to be obtained at the reception and the wifi is only located in a limited area of the hotel (partly in the open).
The view from our room across the lagoon was fantastic and the room was big and light. The shower broke during our stay and it was reported by the maid and fixed immediately.
The location is fantastic Breakfast is very poor
Reception staff was very responsive and pleasant to deal with. The room was very spacious and clean. Not applicable
location is great / localização fabulosa!!! breakfast is very poor / pequeno almoço paupérrimo!!!
Location to Obidos was the best. Walking to all attractions. Parking available. The beds are hard, real hard. They need to upgrade the showers.
The price for the hotel considering its proximity to Obidos was very good. No
It was quiet, it was also close to Obidos, there was parking available outside the hotel. The bath was miniture size, the rooms were very oldy world Portuguese style which may not suit all.
We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. It was extremely well located, just outside the city gates. The room was clean and spacious, staff were pleasant and the breakfast reasonable. The decor is a little dated but in good condition. We had trouble parking at the hotel, but there was a lot of parking on the street.
The location is good just outside the city walls with views over the town. The room was big and comfortable, everything was clean and convenient.
Excelent location, good breakfast, wifi access
location old furniture
location breakfast, the rooms are not these show on the pictures and are basic
Very convenient for visiting Obidos.
Friendliness of the staff and excelent location. The queen-size bed was actually a double bed. My wife and I didn't sleep very comfortably.
comfortable rooms, central areas and fitness/indoor swimming pool.Helpful stafflocation next to beautiful coastline poor main courses in set price evening buffet.Poor choice and poor quality - dried out.
We booked this hotel for a luxury stay (expected from a 5 star rated hotel) but were very disappointed: bathroom was not clean, dinner-buffet was awfull (no choice, cold, too expensive), old-fashioned pool-chairs with dirty pillows, ... Totally not worth 5 stars!! Stain on fame of Marriott!!
The rooms were beautiful and clean, the beach was excellent. It was very close to Lisbon and surrounding points of interest. Also great if you're a golfer. Hotel staff, particularly the outdoor bar near the pool. Only one staff member was working this area, and with only a handful of customers, it was painfully slow to get a drink (ie 20 minutes and then only with a reminder). No apologies and no welcoming atmosphere. It was just like Trip Advisor comments we read prior to booking......
The silence, the ocean... The animation service, the hours for some animation (Ex. spining).
Fantastic hotel with good location and sufficient space. I've been very disappointed by the mattress state. Every night;, i have backache due to the too soft and old bedding. It has been reported to the reception but they just added a wooden plate under the mattress instead to replace it ! The breakfast was a little bit confusion as well...
Good breakfast. Fantastic sea view and green surrounding the hotel. When we got back to the room after having dinner, we found our bags had been scrambled around and some pieces of clothing were left to the floor. Someone had been messing around our luggage, though nothing was missing. Not a good welcoming treat in any case.
Nice rooms with Marriot standart confort. Bad price quality relation. Room price is too high compared with what is offered. Food is expensive and there are no alternatives near by (Peniche is 20 minutes away). Not even a playroom for children.
Hotel facilities are very good. The staff acts properly for a 5* hotel. For a 5* hotel the breakfast buffet could be better
Relaxing ambience, without a lot of people Staff could be a little bit more friendly, some of them don't have experience
Stunning concept. Fantastic interior design. Very nice staff. Great golf course. The site is not ready for guests. Restaurant is a canteen. Construction of all the main parts is ongoing. Noise and dirt all over. We decided to move elsewhere, because the atmosphere felt like a mix of Westworld meets teenage horror movie.
The accomodation was first class. Luxury townhouse for the price of a standard hotel room. Being a new resort, facilities are currently very limited.
The kitchen facilitys were excellent, the bathroom was super, My wife especially liked the beds comfort. The entertainment facilitys were very good, especially the TV. The resteraunt was first class.
Finest contemporary architectural style, Superior and exceptionally equiped. (1) I convinced a friend to also make a reservation and the next day he got a better rate (2) Bicycle Rental was publicized in the web site but not availabel. (3) Gardens are not ready yet and therefore you have no privacy.
Hotel ideally situated for exploring the Silver Coast.
Good location, excellent breakfast, helpful staff.
Location was excellent and the choice for breakfast was superb. Also availability of garage for car.
Enjoyable visit, hotel was somewhat over the top regarding the historical theme however very comfortable, ideal for visiting Obidos and staff were very helpful. They really need more signs on the the road directing you to the hotel
Good location, staff helpful, "knight design" silly
location, free parking, breakfast medieval theme carried too far
This is a beautiful little hotel, very cosy rooms with a quirky medieval theme. The staff are very helpful and friendly and its in a perfect location only a few meters outside of the castle walls. The pool is lovely to relax by after sightseeing. All in all a lovely hotel and a lovely town to spend a couple of nights in.
Being in the center of Obidos
Excellent Continental Breakfast. No English one though...
It's a great hotel. Great medieval decoration. Nice and helpful staff. Perfect location! No.
The elevators were not working, the room was freezing and we had to ask for a heater, the room was not very clean
nothing there is no hot water
I did not like the room. Car park too far away, no value for money.
I found the hotel was in a super position in the shopping area and very convenient to all amenities. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Caldas. Staff were very helpful and friendly at all times.
The staff were very friendly and helpful; the hotel is very well located, close to shopping, grocery stores, and the main bus terminal; the room was very quiet and I felt safe staying there The rooms, furnishings, and fixtures are very old and somewhat worn; the wall-mount for the shower was broken; the room was not very clean when I arrived (although it was better on subsequent nights); payment is required upon arrival, and no refunds are given if you need to shorten the length of your stay (so this may not be a good choice for business travelers whose plans may change)
Freindliness of the staff 1. Water was not always hot 2. Bed was not the most comfortable and creaked when you moved
Breakfast was ok. I didn't like the hotel. It needs renovation. Old and destoyed furniture, uncomfotable bed, paint falling from walls. The room was very humid. Not nice smell of bed clothing. Additionally, the hotel staff asked for payment during check-in.
Great value. Extremely pleasant, helpful staff. Scratchy towels.
Central near bus and rail stations. Not so much a hotel, more a pension
Broken beds , dificult to find adress and signs , no ventilation at room , last dat breakfast from remains !
This is a very special place. It is an old house well decorated in an old fashion but very nice and with avery nice ambient and relation with the personal. No, no comi alli por lo que no puedo decir nada de la comida....
Conveniently located for Obidos and surrounding area
Very beautiful and classic hotel. Friendly staff. There is no heater in our room. It could be very cold at night.
Too many insects, flies and mosquitos.
Location is perfect, but in such a small town, any place would be well located.. Great breakfast, with huge portion of scrambled eggs.. It's a pity though they refused to make fried eggs for me, even though they prepared fresh eggs for every person separately. Just scrambled eggs available apparently :) It was difficult to breathe, especially when you just got in. It is an old place, and the air circulation is definitely not the best. It was the first place ever that I had problems breathing. Also, the whole hotel smells like varnish, due to something they use to clean the floors - whenever I smell such strong smell, I always think the staff of the hotel want to hide something. One more thing, the hotel was built to be a convent, but it never actually became one. I wanted to stay there because I've never slept in a convent, so I was a bit disappointed to hear the real story of this place. Oh, and I am incredibly suprised it is a 4-star hotel.
Lovely facility in a great location!
Overl style of the hotel was very good and the room felt rustic and beds very comfortable. Only down side was the smell of drains that wafted up through the bathroom over night but did confine itself to the bathroom. Breakfast very good value and the waiter (who speaks 7 lanuages and has worked over Europe for 17 yrs) was very good and friendly. Smell of drains in the bathroom on the odd occasion.
Beautiful rooms, good location, pleasant helpful staff. No broadband connection
Large rooms. Wonderful history. Ideal location for seeing the castle and walled city. A little difficult to find at first but that added to the fun.
It was close to Obidos, very clean and staff was friendly. Credit card machine was not working and had to pay in cash
very helpfull staff. Dinner buffet exelent.Easy to get to center of Lisboa. Hotel in center of town, very easy to find. Rooms nice and clean.
The staff at reception speaks English and are friendly. The hotel carpark doubles up as a storage space and is dimly litted. Refurbishment of the room is long overdue. Low water pressure.
The staff were friendly. The hotel rooms were cold. Found when in the bedroom you could hear every sound in the corridor etc so very noisey. Breakfast was very poor. And later that day when we asked for a menu we were told the hotel was not serving any type of food all day or night!
Good value for the money, help staff Breakfast, everyday the same thing. The same ham and cheese and bread. No eggs of any type, no hot foods at all. Not much of a selection at all. Good coffee
Central location, friendly staff, clean rooms. Having stayed at the hotel before I knew what to expect. The food is of low standard, particularly breakfast. At breakfast there was a lack of staff clearing up.
Location and convienience for town centre Poor breakfast, poor choice of evening meal.
Friendliness of the staff Some of the commodities that where advertised where not available at the hotel like the safe at the room, mini bar and sauna.
Well located, excellent staff, great breakfast.
the proximity to the shopping the air conditioning broke down and a man at the desk said engineers were working to fix it this was not true
Comfortable, close to main town centre, excellent breakfast and reasonably priced drinks in bar. The hotel had a small pool area at rear but it was not very inviting.
Comfortable room, friendly English-speaking staff, adequate parking. Nice breakfast. Entrance difficult to find. Own transport needed.
excellent place to relax from city's noise and dust. Swimmingpool, garden.
The staff were wonderful, friendly & informative. Free internet access was great!
Location and Hotel ambiance and facilities.
good location, nice room and pool, very friendly staff
quiet, friendly, excellent location for Obidos visit
The friendliness of the staff, the beauty of the hotel and view. I especially liked the amenities available, including the pool table, the computer available to guests for internet use free, and the pool. The property is more beautiful than the pictures on the internet.
Very good, clean, beautiful, well located.
Very comfortable and the staff very helpful. I'd have no hesitation in going back again (and may possibly be for 3 days in July). I'd also have no hesitation recommending it to family members or friends. The staff were great- very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended. Very narrow gates on the way in? If you have a big car it can be difficult manoevuring. Very little I didn't like about the hotel- it was quite delightful staying there.
Quiet, clean, spacious, modern facilities with traditional country decor, very close to the charming medieval village of Obidos.
Excellent location.Upgraded to 2 double rooms was a bonus for our adult holidaying with us.
Friendly staff. This is a basic hotel, but good value for money. Best with a room on the back, we had a front-facing room and the road in front is quite noisy.
the breakfast was very good having to carry luggage up very steep narrow stairs - the bathroom was dreadful, you could hardly use the toilet squeezed in the position it was. The fittings were old and barely functional. The bed felt damp and the room was cold and damp
Clean and modern, yet extremely tiny rooms. Very convenient location for sightseeing and very friendly front desk staff. Rooms are too small for any standard.
friendly staff small twin bed
Staff were friendly and helpful The bed matress was very uncomfortable
The hotel owner is very kind. And there is a special very safe space for us to put our expensive bicycles in one special room. This is an important advantage for us!!! The internet just broken is the only small disadvantage!!!
good value for money nice area with fredly staff
The park across the street and the fruit market close by every day. The beds were very uncomfortable and some of the pillows were flat.
Friendly, fluent in English staff Small bathroom
Large balcone outside Hotel called "International" but only few employees speaking english (also at the reception and at the restaurant) - Sauna to be booked 3 hours in advance and no confort (small room) - Very noisy because of a lot of constructions around the hotel
staff were courteous, buffet breakfast was nice and was topped up continuously, room was clean.on site parking. nice bar area, common areas were great! free wifi although not in the rooms rooms at the end of the hallway suffered from the thumping music of the reception hall/restaurant on the weekend. finding a carspace in the weekend when reception hall is operating is a task.
convenient,inexpensive and clean for an overnight stay.
Very modern/design decoration. Staff was friendly, rooms were big, clean and modern. Very good location for those who have a car, near different beaches. No hair dryer, very few channels on satelite tv, pool was shared with party sallon attached to the hotel (not owned by the hotel). Other than that, it was fine for a weekend break.
The hotel was clean, very reasonable, food very good,dinner buffet brilliant.Only downside for us ,lot of painting,power washing outside going on, otherwise great
Easy hotel parking (not charged). Reasonable/good gym, though we did not make use of it due to lack of time. Spacious rooms and halls. Poor breakfast (excellent brown bread, though...). Arguable decoration of halls and rooms.
breakfast was poor
Please write at least 15 words No complaints
Hotel was extremely clean! Room was small but comfortable. Free breakfast did not include any hot food but was quite adequate to start off the day. Wi-fi was available for free from the Hotel Lobby, but not from the rooms.
hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. rooms were clean, well kept, and beautifully decorated. we stayed in December. although the rooms have airconditioner, it was a bit chilly at night.... maybe because of its historic building and its stone floor. I would definitely recommend you to stay in Obidos in warmer season.
The staff was incredible-so helpful to us with parking, facility orientation, directions, area attractions, etc. The atmosphere was beyond gorgeous! It was all quaint & luxurious at the same time. Only the lack of channel availability on the TV. Not an issue really.
the location within the walls of an historic town; the friendly, competent staff, the attractive room and grounds no
Staff excellent. Pricey, but if you don't want butter wrapped in silver foil or marmalade in plastic pots with rip-off lids - it's worth it. Recommend breakfast on your balcony - bliss. Warning!! Camels/needles - cars/Obidos.
Beautiful hotel. Decoration and staff friendliness are best in class. Restaurant is very good though a bit expensive. Parking is not very convenient and bed mattress should be changed as soon as possible. Apparently we were not the first ones to complain about the mattress which probably dates from the past century!
The hotel staff were all very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was excellent. The situation of the hotel made parking difficult - we were not aware how narrow the streets were!
The friendly staff, their flexibility, the great service: good kitchen and an excellent breakfast The difficulty to reach the hotel by car. It should be better explained that there are huge parking limitations
Good clean appartment hotel, clean , well equiped, close to the ocean and golf area
the pool and staff friendliness no
The apartments were large and clean. Lost our hot water and heat but maintenance was very prompt and resolved the issue quickly. Great place for families that love the beach.
well maintained property. spacious.quiet, well equiped for a family , washer/dryer/dishwasher. stayed in appartment. slight smell of mildew even when dehumidifier was on all the time.No access to morning sun on balcony( or anywhere else in our appartment) and too chilly in shade ( early july). Swimming pool cold.
Large apartment, beautiful beach. Not enough retaurants or shops in Praia D'El Rey
I find it unacceptable that when we book an apartment on a saturday, check in 16.00 hours, that they literally" throw " us out at 10.00 hours next day, menacing us in a letter that if we do not leave the hotel at 10.00 we will have to pay 100 € / hour for every hour we are late. I have NEVER , nowhere in the world experienced such thing....
the size of the apartments were large and clean too far away from anything else... 15 min was more like 30 min!
The excellent location and the good apartments. the kitchen of the apartments could have some little things that would improve the stay
very quite area. 20 min far from next hotel or shopping area.need always a car,not comfortable anough.
