Trip Advisor October 2014
Be warned: once you enjoyed the outstanding hospitality at HP you might be addicted and return very often
"The Four Seasons Grill is a traditional grill restaurant which serves delicious food (not only to HP guests)
They offer very interesting menus, which are not cheap but worth the money spent (for example: "mise en bouche" = topinambur soup with cherry sorbet, starter= avocado cannelloni with crab meat, main dish= filet mignon/beef with foie gras sauce, to finish cheese or desert .... white/red wine, water and coffee inclusive for 43 Euros pp)
The Banyan Tree Spa is great and you can book all kind of treatments(liked the Thai classic).
The traditional golf course of Estoril belongs to HP and is a pleasure to play, not very long, but be aware of trees and tricky greens.
Be warned: once you enjoyed the outstanding hospitality at HP you might be addicted and return very often! "

If you want to be treated like royalty this is the place to stay
"I stayed here for a week with my husband and another couple the place is absolutely out of this world it's peaceful it's quiet it is elegant and worth every penny that we spent. We stayed in a standard double bedroom beautifully decorated spotlessly clean, more than adequate for what we needed for this particular trip. Bed linen and towels are changed every single day. The staff from housekeeping,cleaners,waiting staff & bar staff are exceptional, a special mention however must be made to Jose one of the doorman thank you for all your help. All the staff make everybody feel very very special, nothing is too much trouble. I have stayed in some wonderful hotels around the world however I have never stayed anywhere that has made me so relaxed in such a peaceful atmosphere. Breakfast in the morning is wonderful with every type of ham cheese bread yoghurt & fruit you could possibly need you also have a choice every day of cooked hot food, I also enjoyed my Bucks fizz every morning. The pool area also kept in immaculate condition sun loungers and towels are provided and waiting staff are on hand to take your orders food and drink. I WILL BE GOING BACK" !

One of the best hotels in Europe
This was our 2nd visit to the Palacio, but for longer this time as we enjoyed it so much the first. This is a genuine 5 Star hotel, with superb staff and management. Breakfast is superb, the staff are happy caring and friendly, the doorman has been the doorman at this hotel since 1951 and is one of the world's longest serving hotel employee's. The decor and public rooms are grand but the hotel never feels large and sprawling. The Spa is one of the best we have been too and is attached to the hotel, brand new within the last few years. The pool is superb and is a newly refurbished overflow pool. My only criticism from last year was slow internet service and patchy coverage around the hotel, this has now been fixed and is great now covering the entire hotel and pool area. We will come back next year for longer!
