Time Out says
The 19th-century mansion of the Counts of Cabral is now a luxury hotel owned by the international Design Hotels group, which has had the building refurbished recently. Overlooking the Atlantic, the Farol has one of the most beautiful swimming pools anywhere along the Cascais Line, in addition to its pleasant terrace, On The Rocks, where you can enjoy a drink at the end of the day, and Sushi Design, which is one of the best sushi restaurants around. These are three good reasons for visiting the hotel without staying there. If you’re plan is to stay, then enter the classic building to which has been added a modern extension, then choose from the imposing penthouse, four suites or any one of the rooms decorated by different fashion designers: Ana Salazar, Augustus, Fátima Lopes and João Rôlo. There are also traditional rooms, which are less extraordinary, but which all come with views of the sea or of the gardens.
