Onyria Quinta da Marinha Hotel:
The Onyria Quinta da Marinha Hotel is the official hotel for the Ironman and the Ironman 70.3 Cascais. Not only because of its convenient location to the start and finish lines. But it also caters well to triathletes, cyclists, and sports lovers alike.
The sport hotel is located between the ocean and the mountains in an estate called Quinta da Marinha. It’s a protected Natural Park area of Sintra-Cascais. It’s the perfect location for active holidays and the lovely town of Cascais is nearby to dine and mingle.
The beautiful city Lisbon is only a short drive or train ride away. Ideal if you want to soak up some culture, go shopping, listen to Fado, or simply enjoy the sights and sounds of Portugal´s capital.
This cycling-friendly hotel is a great base for your cycling holidays in Portugal. The hotel offers suggested cycling routes and there is secure bike storage on-site. There is a bike shop based right next to the hotel that offers a wide range of bike rentals, including premium racing bikes, which can be delivered and picked up to and from the hotel.
Once you have secured your hotel booking they can reserve bike rentals for you for your preferred dates. There are great road cycling routes for riders of all levels, both along the coast from Cascais to Guincho and up to Cabo do Roca, as well as inland towards Sintra including some challenging climbs.
For mountain biking, you’ll definitely want to check out some of the routes in Sintra. Some challenging climbs and great single-trails all the way down to the coast, with amazing scenery along the way.
This hotel is a great option for triathletes, besides being a cycling-friendly hotel, the hotel has its own lake with a 400-metre swimming loop marked by buoys. This lake is located on the 18th hole of the on-site golf course and therefore can only be used early in the morning. However, the nearby town of Cascais has calmer water where you can practise open-water swimming. Or you can book a session in the nearby municipal semi-Olympic pool. The Hotel’s General Manager is an IRONMAN, so be rest assured he has your best interests covered.
