A functional, somewhat 'tired' hotel in a very quiet residential area, 10 mins walk from the Casino and 15 mins from Tamariz Beach/Estoril station. I stayed four nights and it was adequate - just.
Staff were friendly enough even if without much initiative (an Iberian trait, me thinks). For instance a simple internet billing conundrum proved frustratingly difficult to resolve.
The public areas are generally in good condition but my room although clean, was clearly in need of some TLC. There was a whiff of damp with condensation present.
As it was unseasonably cool, leaving the balcony door open wasn't an option and there was no other window/vent. Paint flaking off the walls indicated this was a permanent issue... I peeked into a couple of other unoccupied rooms and they seemed on a par with mine.
I booked this place as part of a flight/hotel/car deal and in that respect I got good value; I also knew the local area which helped. But its stand-alone value is perhaps a little overrated. It is, after all, a large B&B.
Would I stay again? Yes but only if I had to; and I'd not consider it for a family stay.
