We thought we'd had it all sorted, as we'd gone for a drive the day before and found what we'd thought was the apartment complex, but now we really didn't know!

TravelPod Member ReviewsOnyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso Cascais
Incredible Hotel! The rooms are beautiful, clean and spacious. The bathrooms are luxurious. They provide a shuttle to nearby Cascais, a charming town on the coast. The restaurant provides one of the best breakfasts in Europe. All the restaurants affiliated with the hotel are gourmet. The golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones and is spectacular. The spa is small but I had a wonderful massage.
