Stayed here for 4 days following a tour of the pousadas of Portugal. I guess anything was going to be a bit of a disappointment after that experience. First of all the location, only a few metres from a junction on the main (and busy) road from Cascais to Lisbon. There is no garden and even if there were it would be noisy, as is the pool which overlooks the road junction.
The food is pretty indifferent too.
On a practical note, particularly for those less athletic, there are no grab handles nor rubber mats in the bathroom. Also, access to the pool is only via 2 flights of (quite steep) stairs.
Estoril unlike Cascais, doesn't seem to have very much to offer, unless one is into gambling at the Casino, and if I were returning I'd be much more inclined to stay in Cascais which has many restaurants and shops.
