You can’t get any closer to the sea than at this hotel. Its bar is literally on the rocks by the Atlantic, and is the perfect spot to start or end your day. So is the outdoor seawater pool, and, of course, the rooms, many of which face the sea and were created by some of Portugal’s leading designers. Although this is a 19th-century mansion, it’s all about contemporary design, and is just a short walk from the famous Boca do Inferno and the center of town.

Its 192 rooms overlook the ocean or a garden from their private terraces or balconies, and feature marble bathrooms.

An iconic hotel of the Lisbon coast since the 1930s, the “Palácio” still exudes the charm of the time when it welcomed the rich, the famous, and spies during WWII. One of those illustrious guests was author Ian Fleming, who was inspired by the casino outside to write his first James Bond novel. Years later, the hotel ended up featured on the Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Across the road is the postcard beach of Tamariz, while at the hotel there is a large outdoor swimming pool, a world-class spa and a fine restaurant.
