Amazonia Estoril Hotel
Ranked #12 of 17 Hotels in Estoril
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Good location, less than 10 minutes walk to the beach and railway station, but away from main centre, so pleasantly quiet.
Compact, some 35 rooms, exceptionally clean, spacious, friendly staff and pleasant lounge / public areas. Decent pool area with plenty of sun loungers, tables and chairs. Towels provided at no extra charge. Pool unheated and quite compact.
Breakfast - same options each day, self service hot and cold selection – nothing fancy but quality o.k. Watch out the coffee can be very strong!
Evening meal options available, but we didn’t try these so unable to comment.
Bar and snack prices very reasonable for a 4 star hotel and service good.
Wi-fi available at €1.50 per hour, which is reasonable, although free would be nice.

Room Tip: We stayed in a studio room complete with kitchenette and the room proved ideal for us. Plenty of spa...

We found this hotel ((eventually) a stones throw from the Estoril Casino ((but don't let that put you off....it's very quiet). First impressions were slightly odd, not the usual reception area you might expect, a bit more 'discreet' we found. However, after 24 hours we discovered the staff to be very friendly and helpful but not 'in your face'. Hotel is modern and minimalist but had most things you would need. We stayed on a B&B basis and found the breakfast to be very good with both hot and cold dishes. Room service was daily and car parking was free. It was an 8 minute walk each morning down to the seafront and 20 minutes or so into Cascais....a pleasant walk. The walk back from the seafront was a little slower as the hotel is uphill. Not too strenuous, I'm 62.

One criticism. Athough the pool and surrounding area was pleasant, grab your sunbed early as there were, at times, not enough.

Overall though, if you're looking for a thoroughly modern hotel, central and quiet, I can recommend this one.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building, not the annexe.

We stayed in a studio with sea view and small kitchen. I wanted the kitchen and facilities to have own breakfast and drinks on our balcony at sunset. The room was perfect. Tastefully decorated, all white, large, two balconies and a sea view. The bathroom was a good standard too with a large shower and great water pressure. We didn't use any of the hotel facilities other than the pool as we spent most of our time on the beach or down in Cascais. The beach is only a short walk away although the walk back up hill in high temperatures may be a struggle if you have mobility issues or small children.
Although we were very close to the Casino and a small number of restaurants, the area around the hotel remained very quiet at night and we had no issues sleeping - the air con also means you can keep windows closed if you wish. We also found the staff to be be very helpful and friendly and had no issues with the hotel whatsoever. We will certainly stay here again as we plan to visit Estoril again in the future.

Room Tip: All views from the high floors are attractive.

I wanted a romantic and relaxed beach holiday with my partner and I really wanted a nice hotel as a bad hotel can really spoil a holiday. I am SO glad we picked hotel amazonia. We took a risk and just picked it because of how it looked on its website and its location and our risk paid off. The staff were lovely and very helpful. One waitress was so chatty and friendly and even gave my partner and I a free dessert at the hotel resturant. Our room was stylish, comfy and very clean. The decor could be accused of being a little cold but it is done to a high standard and feels more modern than sparse. The shower was amazing. The best shower Ive ever used. We had a little kitchenette which was very handy as eating out every night can get a little tiresome. There is a "jumbo" supermarket a five euro taxi ride away which was great for getting snacks. The hotel resturant is quiet and the food is reasonable but to be honest there are much better resturants five min walk away.
I really enjoyed my stayed here. If you are looking for a relaxed luxuary get away then this hotel is perfect. Five mins away from the beach, five mins from a train link to lisbon and there is a lovely 15 min walk to cascais along the sea. If you have young children or looking for a party hotel this probably isnt for you. I love it !

Faintly disappointing after previous review. Breakfast was only 8 euros but rather poor standard and late, didn't start until 8 but even later than that. Room very clean but rather bare and lacked any warmth

We satyed for 14 days at this hotel, actually extending our stay twice. The first week we were 21 family members for our wedding, all staying at the Amazonia. Rooms were big, airy and clean. Most rooms had balconies, and all had efficient and quiet air conditioners. Service was impeccable, and the garden with pool was a joy. Extremely relaxing stay, with good breakfasts served until 10.30 every day by smiling and caring staff. All the hotel is very clean and really deserves the "boutique" monicker. It is quiet, but just a few minutes from very good restaurants and the beautiful beach. Perfect for a family holiday with trips to Sintra and Lisbon, besides the more touristy, but ok, Cascais.

Got back over the weekend having spent 5 nights. Gorgeous hotel, incredibly clean, modern and a boutique like feel about the place. So many nice touches about the place, from the décor of the room and bathroom to the reception area and water features outside with fish and turtles in.

Room, which was very spacious, had inbuilt hairdryer and fridge with minibar and air-con was very welcome. Big mirror, nice balcony, brand new widescreen plasma TV showing a few English Channels (BBC Choice, BBC News 24, Eurosport and several music channels) and a very comfy bed. Rooms were beautifully cleaned/made every day. Plenty of wardrobe/hanging/storage space including a safe in the room.

Turns out the place had just gone through a big refurbishment and was closed for 8 months. I heard that 16 of the rooms were in operation, but tinkering work was being done on the remaining rooms – about another 10 I believe.

Pool area and pool, albeit cold, was very nice with good decking and comfy new sun loungers. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, including the General Manager who always acknowledged us and asked if everything was OK.

Didn’t have/need a car, but there is a car park for a few cars and the hotel is secure and gated. Hotel is situated up a hill about 4-5 mins walk from the beach. Although the hotel has lifts and ramps to cater for the disabled and elderly, it would be a bit of hard work to negotiate the rather steep hill leading to the hotel. Didn't really explore Estoril as didn't seem that much going on, but Cascais - lovely place and would guess more lively at the weekend or peak season - is only a (30 min) walk along the beach front or 5 mins (4 euros) in a cab. Casino (Europe's largest apparently) is a 4 min walk away and a small food supermarket about 10 mins walk from the hotel. Nearest big supermarket (called Jumbo) selling pretty much everything is in Cascais, where there's also a cinema and plenty of bars and restaurants. A regular train service runs to Lisbon, which is only 30 mins and costs just under 4 euros for a return, running til 1.30am in the morning. Was planning to play golf at the local Estoril course, but would've been 65 euros to play then an extra 35 euros for club hire, so we left it.

Going back to the hotel, 3 very minor issues:
- Reception area not clear to find – probably hadn’t got round to putting a sign up
- Breakfast we didn’t feel was great value at 8 euros each
- No internet available for public use but were told they’d be getting it.

Apart from that, absolutely no complaints.
