Recently spent a week in the Estoril Eden Hotel with a group of 26 people. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay in Estoril and Cascais very much indeed.
The Eden is very close to the seafront and is pretty much in the centre between both towns.
The train station is in front of the hotel with regular connections to Lisbon.
However, the hotel is on a height and one has to cross a highway and railway line through downhill underpasses to get to the promenade which could be a problem for people with walking difficulties. There are 46 steps down to the beach from the underpass directly in front of the hotel.
That said, taxis are available from outside the hotel and cost approx €4.50 to the centers of both towns ( min charge is €3.90)
Now to the hotel facilities. The Eden is a 4 star Aparthotel and the rooms are very large with a fully equipped kitchenette, nice dining and lounge area, very comfortable beds and a great sea-view balcony. The hotel was very clean throughout and was in line with expectations of a 4 star property.
Safes were provided in the rooms at an additional cost of €2.20 per day ( I cannot understand why hotels charge for this most essential facility?). Flat screen modern televisions were provided in all rooms offering a wide range of channels in English.
The food ( we were booked half board) was probably the best I experienced from buffets in holiday hotels in general. However, my only criticism was that the hot food was served lukewarm and probably below recommended temperatures. Unfortunately there were no microwaves available in the dining room which would have been nice for those who like hot food hot!
Bottles of wine and water were generously provided at all evening meals at no additional cost which i thought was really great.
Most staff in the hotel were very friendly and competent however, the bar staff really left the hotel down with a bang! In particular, the younger guy ( whose name I could not make out) was really off-putting. He never smiled and was slow to serve customers as he was either watching TV or playing with his mobile phone. He really did not want to serve us and did his best to make us feel unwanted.
However, overall our experiences in this hotel were positive and I would be happy to spend another holiday there again at some future time.
The indoor and outdoor pools were great and the ladies in our group were very satisfied with the Spa treatments undertaken.
Our entire group enjoyed our October sun break and the weather could not have been better!
