    The rooms need air circulation- due to its proximity to the ocean, the rooms get very humid and the air is stagnant and smelly. Also, numerous areas of the property are not kept well (eg, cheap green carpet to look like grass is ripped everywhere, areas of the pool are not clean, etc.) It is more like a one or two star!

    Everything a bit old and used, bathroom definitely needs renovation, but it's not like you'd be afraid to go inside. It's my first experience renting an apartment, so i wasn't prepared that there'd be no tee/coffee, and it didn't make sense to buy it for just couple of days.

    Nice location, nice and big pool with attractions (3 different waterslides, 1 for adults, 2 for kids), big parking, gas station next to the hotel. Big bed in the appartment.

    The apartments need an update. Bathroom was quite small but with a comfortable shower.

    The location is really good, close to Praia das Macás and with a big (50 meter) swimming pool in front of your balcony! It was to cloudy to go to the beach but the swimming pool was perfect. With a long slide :) Lifeguards are present and they give you a softcover for the chair for free (If you're a Sintra Sol guest) Short walk to the restaurants. Close to the beach and with oceanview. Too bad it was cloudy these days but with a clear sky you can see a nice sunset for sure :) Short drive to the historic city Sintra. For a young family is Sintra Sol a nice play to stay I think.

    just extremely basic, curtains no black out and were barely holding on to the rails, we had a room located right underneath the swimmingpool. 20 year old Tv, noisy bedframes, very tiny. toilet seat coming off all the time and lid not opening fully, only 90 degrees, too much money for what you get

    Swimmingpool is the only positive but even the slide was not working a few times. About 10 minutes walk to beach. Clean.

    The WIFI does not work in the room! The apartment could have been cleaner (floors were very dirty when we arrived). Lighting is very poor in the bathroom and kitchen. Bathroom is a bit small compared to the apartment.

    The pool and water facilities are excellent. The apartments are also close 5 minutes away from the beach and restaurants. The bedroom was spacious.

    The site is old. It has been remodeled but not to the standards of today. Outdoors it seems to be under construction but I am not sure it is. The appartment could be cleaner. We had some trouble with hot water. I believe it can't service many baths at same time. We had little luck finding people at the reception.

    The whole building needs deep root renovation, and the house should have been cleaner. Even the bedsheets ought to have been cleaner. It's a pity to let a good location and concept run down over the years to this extent.

    The apartment had a very nice view of the swimming pool and the beach of Praia das Maçãs. The swimming pool is excellent and very safe for children.

    We were bit concerned when booking the hotel because of previous reviews but everything turned out to be really good. Staff was always very helpful trying their best, the apartment was very nice and clean and look like just recently refurbished. Went for the ocean view which was good idea as the balcony was roomy and had sun loungers, allover equipment of the apartment and kitchenette was very good and sufficient. Location has a lot to offer as it's just off Praia das Macas, lots of restaurants, local market with fresh fruits, vegetables, fish etc. easy access to Sintra by bus and what's even better a historical tram line from Sintra to Praia das Macas (old trams like in Lisbon). Massive swimming pools with slides and salt water, all clean and maintained.

    When we arrived in June 11th, there was no water in the swimming pools. We arrived in the evening, and nobody advised us anything of that situation, and in the morning I had to go to ask about it, and got the answer that the pump to get the water in is broken and it will probably take a few days to get it fixed. As we had promised to our kids to have a nive pool (with water) while on vacation, we left the hotel and get an other place to stay instead.

    Praia das Macas beach is great and this hotel is just the very next building from the beach.
