We had a very nice stay at Hotel Miragem. The hotel is new and of a very high quality. Rooms have very good beds and bedding, very nice marble bathrooms in the rooms, there are very nice views from many (but not all) rooms, great views from the pool area (which is very hip), and the staff is extremely helpful. Even with all of these positives and even though I found the hotel to be totally acceptable, if I were to do things again I would stay somewhere else, most likely Hotel Albatroz or one of the other Albatroz properties that are located in the historic downtown area of Cascais.
The biggest negative to Hotel Miragem is the location. While it is directly across from the beach, it is separated by a 4 lane motorway. The walk to the beach (a few minutes via an underpass) and town (15 minutes) are not difficult, however, other hotels are in the heart of the downtown area and much more convenient to the best part of Cascais, which is the downtown area. The location also makes it tough for taxis and cars to get in and out of the parking area and we found ourselves waiting too long for taxis (this is just one of those annoyances that isn't the end of the world, but gets old if you're need to take more than a couple of taxis). Finally, while the hotel is very nice, it has the feel of a large business convention hotel and is a bit sterile/unwelcoming. Cascais is such a charming, beautiful place, the convention style didn't fit for me. Moral of the story: nice hotel, but I feel as though there are better options in Cascais.
The hotel has a spa, but my wife and I were disappointed.
Unique Quality: Great pool area with nice views.
This is a beautiful ultra modern hotel on the bay in Cascais. The views are fantastic! The rooms and service were 5 star!
Do not plan on having beach acces if you stay here, even though it is on the water. The train tracks run right bveside the road and both are in front of the hotel. Beach access is available with a short walk around the bay, where (according to some of the pictures my husband took) topless sunbathing is tolerated.
The town is within walking distance and so are all of the restaurants. If you want to go to Sentra (I recommend this side trip) you can get on a train and go for the afternoon. Lisbon is also close by. I would definitely stay there again! I use a moterized wheelchair and did not have any trouble with access anywhere but getting down to the train tracks.
Unique Quality: This hotel is a great change from old luxery hotels and castles that you find all over Europe.
I do like a mix of both.
