SANA Estoril Hotel
Ranked #12 of 17 Hotels in Estoril
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful and the view from our room was excellent the hotel is dreadfully dated. However for the entire duration of our stay the hotel was over-run with 11-14 yr olds from all over the world. Kicking a football in the dining room at breakfast, playing with and disrupting the lift service. Playing football in a heavily congested pool area and generally causing mayhem throughout the hotel were just some of the delights we experienced. The hotel staff were exasperated by the youths' lack of courtesy and respect and our 10 days were ruined. We felt older guests should have been informed in advance that 90% of the guests were going to be children. We would not have booked.

Room Tip: Make sure there are no football tournaments in the region!

We stayed at the Sana EStoril Hotel for one week; part of a package deal with Newmarket Holiday Company. The hotel was a little outdated but our room was clean, comfortable and adequate enough, with good bathroom facilities, toiletries, hairdryer and a balcony with sea view..third floor at the front. Maid service every day and towels changed, beds made. One problem was the lack of wall sockets, only two on the skirting board, one which didn't work. The other slight problem was the noise of the traffic, when balcony doors were opened. Breakfast area was great, on the fourth floor with lovely views of Estoril. Buffet style continental breakfast was excellent..lots of choice. There is a swimming pool with sun loungers, but we were too busy sightseeing to use it. The hotel is located on a very busy dual carriageway. A good location for travelling however with bus and train station only a few minutes walk away. Half an hour on the train into Lisbon for 2 Euro 15 cents and trains about every 15 minutes. The walk along the promenade into Cascais was delightful and takes about 30 minutes..plenty of café/bars along the way. Enjoyed our stay overall, but not a huge amount to do in Estoril.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front with balconies, the higher the floor the better.

We stayed in sana estoril for 5 nights. The location is great a few minutes walk from a lovely beach, bars, resturants and the casino. Our room was a bit dated but the bathroom was fine and the rest of the hotel was lovely. We lost a camera while we were away and rui who was working on reception couldn't have been more helpful. I passed our thanks on to the manager. Also the bar staff were very warm and friendly. All in all we would recommend this place for people wanting a base to explore estoril. It's under 10 euros in taxi to cascais and it is easily walkable. Close to train station also.

About a 30 min. drive from the airport and close to the beach.
Rooms vary in size and need some remodelling, especially the bathrooms, althouh there were toiletries. Very clean
Average breakfast with coffee from na automatic machine.
Staff very friendly.
I'm sure that there are better 3 star hotels in Estoril, but if you can get a good rate, then it might be worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, as some are faced to the main traffic street.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and chose the hotel due to its vicinity to the station as we were going to the Rock in Rio Festival.

Overall we enjoyed our stay but like many reviews state there are some areas of the hotel that need updating ie the bathrooms. They were small yet had everything we needed (powerful shower, hot water) but difficult to get in and out of due to the way the door opened... That was the only niggle although we would've liked a balcony...

Breakfast was included and there was plenty of choice. Staff we're very friendly and the maids were lovely. The reception area and bar were also very nice and clean.

Recommendations if on a short break like us...

1) Travel...
Taxi from airport is approx €35 (we got this on the way as our flight arrived around midnight). From Lisbon airport this was about 25 mins.
We got a train back which is €6 for 2 ppl and takes around 1.5hrs using train and metro and allows a plod in Lisbon. (Before getting the metro). The Train station is a 3/4 minute walk from the hotel.

2) Beach -The beach behind the station is lovely... Calm sea (cold!), yellow sands and toilet facilities if needed. As well as a few bars, shops and ice creams!

3) Casino - Well worth a visit. Cheap wine if you like that sort of thing... Buffet looked good too.

4) Cascais - 2 stops away on the train (5 mins) or 20 minute walk. Lovely little place, nice cobbled streets, restaurants, harbour etc. A good evening out/day trip.

The location is great in Estoril close to the beach, the beach walk to Cascais, the casino and the train station. The hotel is in a great need of refurbishment! The rooms vary in size and most of them have a balcony. The beds are as a rock. The breakfast buffet offers some basic stuff and some hot dishes. The staff is friendly but it took me several of times of telling them that the safety box didn´t work, but they didn´t fix it! An average hotel, nothing more. I would chose another hotel next time in Estoril.

We have recently returned from a 5 night stay in the Sana which was fine for what we paid. We had a room on the 6th floor which had a fantastic view of the sea, the downside been from 6am the traffic starts and it gets very noisy. The room itself was fine comfy bed and plenty of wardrobe space but the bathroom let it down, the door opened against the toilet so it was very cramped and the shower over the bath had a mind of its own , on a plus side big fluffy white towels were changed every day. Even though it was noisy I would recommend a room with a sea view as I noticed the rooms on the other side seemed a lot smaller. The buffet breakfast was well stock , plenty of everthing that you needed and everything was fresh, the staff were very efficient and helpful. The reception staff were very nice and helpful. The hotel is very close the the train station and bus stops ( the transport service is excellent) which is great for trips to Lisbon and Cascais, We were disappointed with the choice or lack of restaurants around the hotel , we did eat in the Chinese around the corner 1 night and have to say it was excellent value , we ate in Cascais the rest of our stay, we stayed there in October and loved it.
Overall the Sana is fine as a base for sightseeing.

Room Tip: Sea view room
