We stayed here after a river cruise. It was a beautiful hotel located in Estoril, right by Cascais. The lobby and restaurant area was beautiful, very charming. The staff were very helpful. Our room was beautiful and pretty big. The bathroom was very nice and updated. It was an easy walk to the oceanfront promenade. It is also right next to the Casino which is a nice walk even if you don't go into it. The gardens leading up to it are very nice. Overall, I really liked this hotel.
I did not stay here but made a business presentation and had lunch. I am not sure how to describe it, but the room we had was amazing with it's Art Deco furnishings that have been kept pristine. Every interaction with staff was very, very good. The presentation was well appreciated by those that attended, together with an excellent lunch.

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!
