Let's start with the good news:
we got a good price with hotels.com,every 3rd night was free,and having booked 6 nights,we got 2 nights free,making it an average of 36 euros a night.Check in was fast and efficient,the room was already waiting for us although 3 hours earlier then check in time(2pm). Breakfast buffet was also fairly good,but sometimes the place was crowded(it seems that lots of french pensioners travelling by coach stay in the hotel).The matresses were new and very confortable,fairly hard,just like I like them.
Now the bad news:
Apart from the appalling weather (it rained most of the time)for which the hotel is obviously not responsable,there was an overwelming smell of sewage in the room,maybe a common problem,who knows,moreover the hotel is located in a residential area of detached houses that almost all have dogs,these dogs bark all day and also most of the night,fact that is totally overlooked by they ignorant owners,and this make sleeping at night very difficult,especially if you get a room towards the street and not towards the pool.There are no supermarket in the vicinity.
would I go back?Probably not,maybe I would go to the nearby Cascais,a much better looked after town....Estoril was probably a little gem in the 1950s,but now is just falling apart,a bit like Graeat Yahrmouth.
