Isolated on a rocky point by the Atlantic Ocean between Cascais Marina and Hell's Mouth, the ultra-contemporary Farol Hotel combines a remodelled 19th-century mansion with 21st-century design. The centre of Cascais is 500 metres away; Lisbon is 27 kilometres away. Lisbon Airport (LIS) lies 35 kilometres from the hotel. There are 2 golf courses within 2.5 kilometres and sandy beaches nearby.
Once the summer home of the Count of Cabral, Farol Hotel upgraded the original 19th-century building and added a new section in 2001. A youthful clientele comes here to relax during the daytime and party in Cascais nightspots after dark. Complimentary drinks are served to guests upon arrival. For a fee, wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel. A saltwater pool rejuvenates guests during warm-weather months; sun loungers and sun beds furnish the surrounding flagstone terrace. A 24-hour airport shuttle is available for an additional charge.
The hotel's ocean-view restaurant also has a terrace and serves Mediterranean fusion dishes as well as a Japanese menu, which includes sushi. Guests can enjoy 24-hour room service and hold business meetings in the hotel's meeting room and ballroom. A fitness center located 300 meters from the hotel honors guests with a discount.
