Fodor's Expert Review Sesimbra Hotel & Spa

Praça da Califórnia, Sesimbra, Setúbal, 2970-773, Portugal

On a cliff overlooking the beach, this luxurious hotel is the only one in the area with a spa. There's an indoor and outdoor infinity pool whose waters cascade down, waterfall-style, in front of the windows of the elegant seafood restaurant. There's a more casual family eatery with a colorful design, and a bar serving light snacks. All guest rooms have sea-view balconies and linens in soothing shades of blue and greens. There's a small but well-equipped playroom for kids and a shallow pool for younger guests to splash around in.
