A very cozy, family owned hotel! It has everything you need for a comfortable summer Holiday! It's clean, the rooms look simple but nice (not outdated or anything) and the personnel (all family members of the owners I believe) is very kind!
Me and my mate thought we had ordered a room with two single beds, but apparently we got a double that was just a bit too small for two guys (we were laying uncomfortably close to each other), but the hotel provided us with an extra bed at no additional charge!
The pool might be a bit too small if more guests decide to take a swim at the same time, but we had the pool to ourselves for most of the day! (or we had to share it with two or three other guests max).
It also has a large underground parking area, which is very convenient in this area.
Some minor remarks:
There is not much in the direct area of the hotel other than a simple bar and a few restaurants that aren't too good, but it's only a 10-15 minute walk from the center of Estoril.
Our room (303) was just outside the reach of the WIFI.
The coffee and orange juice at the breakfast didn't taste that well, but that is a problem I've experienced in more hotels in Portugal over the years (no wonder starbucks seems to be doing so well in that country!).
The elevator is very slow and once it reaches the desired floor, it takes quite some time before the doors open. Not a big deal, but notable for people with claustrophobia and besides, I'm surprised a hotel in this price class even has an elevator!
The shower heads and hoses in the bathroom look a bit worn off. They could use some replacements.
But once again, these are only very minor remarks! We had a great experience in the hotel! Especially considering it's price class! If I had to chose between this, and some of the three and four star hotels that cost up to five times as much per night as this hotel, I would still chose Hotel Smart!
