Amazonia Estoril Hotel
Ranked #11 of 17 Hotels in Estoril
Reviewed October 10, 2010

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.

Firstly I would like to say how helpful the staff were. It is no longer grubby, they were in the process of a total refurbishment to the point that they were still laying lawns, but at the loss of the garden as a new wing had been built. We stayed in that new wing, the first people in fact, but we overlooked the car park and although they had black out curtains they didn't have any nets in front of these so we were in darkness most of the time as we could be seen - the main building had both nets and black out. It also needed sound proofing, thank goodness the lift wasn't working as that was right on our bedroom wall and we would have got less sleep. They say bar/lounge, no bar I am afraid you have to ask someone if you see them, no pool side bar as that wasn't completed. No internet for us to check in on our return flight home had to use another hotel. Pool too cold for anything, no tables around pool so drinks and food were on ground level and being knocked over. A soft chair found it's way into our room after two days. On the first day we thought we would see what we got for our 8 euro breakfast, which was served between 8 and 10.30. We got down there at 10, ok it's a buffet but there was no one aorund to order tea and coffee, we looked at the tired food and decided to go out for breakfast which we did everyday for about 5-6 euros for the two of us instead of 16 euros, so they did us a favour. Cascais was more of a tourist spot and wished we had gone there. We headed for the casino most nights as the drinks were not badly priced and we could at least sit and listen to the live music. Oh the Casino buffet is worth a try, eat as much as you like with a drink for 14 euros each. It might be better once it has completely finished the refurbishment but would never have gone there had we known it was taking place. Oh forgot to say, the restaurant is only for breakfast they do not serve food there. We found out on the last day that we could axctually order a sandwich, no mention of that anywhere. I didn't appreciate booking a double bed and then given two twins only 2'6" wide on very hard mattress.

Stayed in the Garden House, an annexe to the main building. However, there's no garden, this building replaced it many years ago.
The whole hotel is decaying, badly worn with ageing dilapidated fittings, furniture and carpets.
Pathetic little TV in the room mounted 2.5m off the floor on an ugly bracket arrangement. No seats or table in the room so, even if you want to watch TV there's nowhere to sit!
Booked Bed and Breakfast and prepaid through Expedia. Had to pay extra for breakfast as they advised our agent is at fault because no-one can pre-book breakfast at this hotel - beware as they charge €8 each for a rather shoddy breakfast.

This hotel was great, very clean. The room was spacious. The breakfast was very nice and there was a lot of choice. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We like the location it was close to the beach and the train station to go to Lisbon. We will definetly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is very nice and the majority of the staff very helpful. The pool is nice and clean (but very cold!) and it is near to the beach and the town (but still quiet). The breakfasts are good and there are nice nearby restaurants (we didnt try the hotel restaurant, but it was open).

We were staying with a small baby and had a broken travel cot for the first night, but this was replaced the next day, there are also no kettles in the rooms but we were given hot water every night to make the baby's milk.

The main problem was that when our relatives arrived there was an issue with their internet booking and the hotel wanted to them pay an extra 36 euros a night. The individual dealing with this was not helpful at all, and this was only resolved when all parties threatened to leave. That said the rest of the holiday, and the staff, were great. I would advise people who have booked through their website to speak to them before you travel to check all is as it should be!

Stayed at the Lennox with my father who is in his eighties. The main building does have a lift which was important for us.. This hotel is simple but very clean and comfortable with friendly staff. There is no restaurant but they serve a good buffet breakfast. I would recommend the Jackpot restaurant around the corner for dinner - good quality and good value. The swimming pool is small but adequate.
I would recommend this hotel only if you are hiring a car. Having said that it is a lovely 20 - 30 minute walk along the beach promenade to Cascais. Estoril is quiter and more residential but in some ways has more charm. Taxis are plentiful and relatively cheap if you do not want to drive or walk.
