We did not stay at this hotel, but came for lunch and drinks. That being said, I hope that when I am back in Sintra some day, I can afford to stay at this hotel. It is amazing. Surrounded by lush gardens, a modern style pool and pool deck that has an incredible view of the countryside below, mazes in the garden, a lovely restaurant, a more casual bar restaurant overlooking the pool and some of the gardens. This hotel is 5 star all the way. Not cheap, but classy and elegant.
I didn't know if I would post this tip here or in the "Things to do" section. I never stayed there, but I visited it and find it a marvelous element in the romantic whole of Sintra.
So, take my advise, go there, visit the place, and, if you're free and can afford it (it's so expensive as expected)... stay for the night. Or... nights!
I thought it would be neat to stay in a palace, but the stay proved to be less than exquisite. The front desk and restaurant staff are quite dim-witted and lack customer service skills. The rooms are nice, but I'd be weary of lead paint chips if you have children.

Directions: Save yourself all the walking (if you didn't rent a car) and stay at the Tivoli Sintra instead, which is located in the city center.
At the end of the 18th Century, Daniel Gildemeester, at that time consul for Holland in Portugal, acquired lands of «ginjais e serrados» at the limits of Sintra, where he had a building erected in the classic style and various out buildings. In 1800, the Quinta de Seteais was bought by D. Diogo of Noronha, 5th Marquis de Marialva, who added that part of the building to the collection, also of neoclassical influence.
Later on, commemorating the visit of Regent Prince D. João and of D. Carlota Joaquina, put Francisco Leal Garcia in charge of planning and building a superb triumphal arch that links the two buildings. The interior of the Seteais palace, currently a hotel, is distinguished by magnificent frescos, of intense and pure chromatic lines that cover some rooms, attributable to the famous painter Jean Pillement. In the backyard, pockmarked with holes in the ground, is a box tree garden, of which dazzling landscape dominates from the ocean all the way up to the Saloian plain.
This elegant, pink palace, now a luxury hotel and restaurant, was built in the 18th century for the Dutch Consul, Daniel Gildemeester.
I never stay here but we can imagine how good must be the service provided by this 5star hotel.
