Portugal in TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards 2013
A luxury boutique resort in Cascais, a hotel in Madeira, two Algarve beaches and a beach in Cascais have made travel website TripAdvisor’s list of ‘Top-25’ Travellers Choice Awards 2013, as voted for by millions of international travellers.
Cascais’ Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso resort scooped the most prestigious acclaim, being voted third among the top-25 best hotels in the world.
It was preceded only by the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, and the Cape Grace hotel in central Cape Town, South Africa.
A statement from the recently-inaugurated resort said: “The Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso, in Cascais, Portugal, is the third-best hotel in the world according to the millions of tourists who use the world’s largest travel site, Trip Advisor – and all after just its first full year of operation.
“Our five-star venue was beaten only by the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Hawaii, and South Africa’s Cape Grace, Cape Town Central, South Africa (…) making Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso Europe’s number1.”
Recalling their stay at the luxury resort, one voter commented: “If you cannot find happiness during your stay here, stop looking. There isn’t a better place you’ll find. The staff will go above and beyond to meet any expectations you may have. The accommodations are second to none”,
Madeira’s The Cliff Bay Hotel in Porto Bay, Funchal, made it onto the world’s ‘Top-25 Hotels for Romance’ list, at 17th.
“If you’re in need of a complete rest, this is the place for you. The staff are very efficient but not stuffy. There’s an air of calmness about the place that recharges the batteries”, a recent visitor recounted.
The highest ranking of the three Portuguese beaches to make the best-beaches list is Albufeira’s Praia da Falésia, in the Algarve, which ranked 18th, between the Cala Mariolu beach in Baunei, Italy, and Greece’s Balos Lagoon.
Described by one voter as “heavenly”, Praia da Falésia was praised for its “White powder sand, no seaweed and an amazing red cliff background. It’s never too crowded.”
Next on the list in 21st is Cascais beach, in Lisbon, which TripAdvisor recommends travellers visit between March and October.
Cascais is followed by the Ponta de Piedade beach in Lagos, Algarve, in 22nd, chosen for its “bizarre rock formations in crystal clear water” and which the website says is best visited between May and October.
