LISBON, Portugal: Pestana Palace Hotel was just fabulous. 5 star in all ways. Portugal remains a FABULOUS bargain, by the way, with hotels of finest calibre going for at or under 250 euro ($350 range). Feel like Royalty! These days it seems everyone sees Lisbon as a day trip from their cruise ship (we have, twice) but go and stay for a few days. It's really filled with historic beauty if you wander it. And stay here!
