Top 10 Hotels in Ericeira

The best and most recommended hotels, based on guest reviews, facilities and location.

For a few relaxing days by the sea, Ericeira is a quieter alternative to Cascais and other beach towns on the Lisbon coast. However, you need to book accommodation well in advance if you’re planning to visit in July or August. The months of May, June and September can also be pleasant and the beaches aren’t as crowded, but hotels can also become fully booked rather quickly, as the town is quite small and accommodation is limited.
Because it has become a popular surfing destination, there are several reasonably-priced hostels and guesthouses, in addition to the classic hotels. Here are the most recommended places to stay in Ericeira, for every budget:

    Vila Galé Ericeira

  • 1. Vila Galé Ericeira
  • “Europe’s westernmost hotel” is one of the city’s landmarks. It was once a mansion where some of Lisbon’s wealthiest families spent many of their summer days, but is now a hotel open to anyone. It almost looks like a docked cruise ship, with five floors divided into 202 rooms, most of them overlooking the beach and the hotel’s three outdoor pools. Facilities include a spa and a restaurant specializing in fresh fish.
