We stayed here for a week in early May. While the lifts are small they can accommodate 4 people or two with luggage. There is access from the second floor by stairs, but it is not obvious - try going up the stairs from the reception area. The buffet for breakfast and lunch was very good, though sometimes with a crowd it took a while to replenish dishes. The omelettes made to order were great at breakfast.
The staff were very helpful and helped us making the right choice of wine for value as we had no idea of the price charged when asking for a glass of wine and a bottle of water. This may have been with new staff at the beginning of the season.
The rooms were very clean, ours on the second floor while having a floor length window which opened inwards just had a railing and no balcony, overlooking a small courtyard , while facing seawards, no view of the sea. The bathroom had fitted shower gel and no shampoo. There was no extra charge for use of the safe in the room.
There is a rooftop pool with loungers accessed from the reception area or via the emergency stairs with planters.
The walks along the promenade across the road beyond the railway line from the hotel were very convenient and one could walk in either direction, although a short stretch was beside the road before getting to S. Pedro beach, several train stops up the line. The train to Lisbon took about 40 minutes and you paid 50c for the card and €5.25 return to Lisbon.
There were not too many shops or restaurants nearby as this is a more residential area, but plenty in Cascais just 2 train stops down the coast.
I would recommend this hotel as a good place to use as a base.

This hotel is good, but made great by the staff that work there. Every single staff member we had interactions with were so friendly, helpful and kind. Particularly Carla who was on the front desk when we arrived, who explained everything about the hotel to us, answered all our questions and was generally amazing.

The rooms are moderately-sized and have average facilities. Unfortunately the bed was extremely hard, which is the only negative I can think of for our entire stay. We had booked all inclusive and this included breakfast, lunch, dinner, more than substantial snacks and drinks. Every meal, snack or drink was very generously portioned and delicious.

The rooftop pool has lovely views of the ocean and the staff member working at the pool bar was lovely. They put cushioned pads on the sun loungers so you can comfortably stay there all day. I would recommend arriving early to ensure you get a lounger.

The breakfast buffet was great, with lots of choice of fruit, cooked breakfast items, pastries and even an omelette station.

If travelling to Estoril in future, I would definitely stay at this hotel again, mostly for the exceptional staff members.

Just completed a two week stay at the Vila Galé Estoril hotel and as many of the reviews have emphasized, it is the staff that make your experience most enjoyable. The receptionists were all very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, the single beds were just satisfactory. Rooms with an ocean view are lovely but traffic noise can be disruptive. The breakfast buffet has a good variety of foods.(thank you Mr. Manual Inacio!) The hotel restaurant, Massa Fina, is excellent and we particularly enjoyed the Smoked Salmon Pizza! Again, the staff was wonderful! The hotel location, near the train station, is convenient for travelling to Lisbon, if they aren’t on strike. Walking along the ocean promenade is special.

Our stay would have been fine on it’s own, but one employee made it outstanding. His name is Manuel Inacio and he works in the Dining Room at the hotel there. Not only did Mr. Inacio go out of his way to make sure we had everything while dining in the restaurant, he went way beyond by spending time answering our questions about his beautiful country, Portugal and where he would suggest we visit. He took time to write down places to go and how to get there and was obviously enjoying his job. It is people like Mr. Inacio who are the true ambassadors of any country. The hotel is blessed to have him on board.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in March. The hotel is located across the road from the beach and the railway station and next to the Casino gardens. The hotel is very clean, breakfast was good though the staff struggled to cope when a large group was present one morning. I would say this hotel is more for corporate guests attending meetings in the nearby conference centre rather than for holiday makers. The plus points are : close to beach and station (very frequent trains into Lisbon - get the Navegante card for 10 Euros for train plus all public transport in Lisbon). You can request a kettle for your room. Rooms cleaned every day. Negative points : although centrally located there are not a lot of reasonably priced places to eat nearby though this may change during the summer months. Cascais was much livelier. One of the lifts did not always want to stop at the 7th floor - the staff were aware of the fault with the button. No balconies and we were unable to open the window (though the air conditioning worked well but I prefer fresh air). If I visited the area again I would stay in Cascais which is more of a holiday town rather than a corporate/conference venue (but again, in summer, the vibe may change and the beaches and promenade are fab) but a perfectly acceptable place to stay if you want easy access to Lisbon.

This is definitely not a four star hotel. The staff were not friendly (or helpful) and the rooms lacked basic amenities such as cream, conditioner, no iron, etc (things you would expect from a four star).

Lastly, I left my very expensive headphones in my room (which shows me via the find my device app). When called, they simply said they're not there and made zero effort to check..this is something a shady hotel would do.

I would highly recommend booking another hotel/bed and breakfast in the area. So many other great choices for the cost.

Our bedroom had a shattered glass in the veranda. The food in the hotel was good and breakfast I must say was excellent. Parking was difficult but we got lucky there was one space on the road available, however we were afraid of moving the car and not be able to park again.

The hotel is very convenient for the train to Cascais/Lisbon. Rooms are clean, comfortable and all staff are very well trained. I would absolutely stay with this hotel again. Breakfasts were excellent. Really, really good with a wide choice and well organised. We also had pizzas in the hotel restaurant for dinner...if you love thin crispy based pizzas...you will love them...we did 😋

We have just returned from Vila Gale Estoril. Lovely hotel with great staff. However, on our first night in the restaurant I requested to sit where it was not too busy. The lovely lady at desk obliged....but her colleague arrived and abruptly insisted we " must sit with our group" despite me explaining that my husband has dementia. This was not a good start and was upsetting to us both. Thankfully, all the other staff were very polite and pleasant. The swimming pool on the 2nd floor could only be accessed by a winding staircase from the 1st floor. There were 2 flights of stairs to climb. The handrail was very shaky so we were too nervous to use it.
Location was great but not much in Estoril. The lovely promenade along the coast brought you to Cascais which was beautiful.
We stayed in sister hotel Vila Gale, Albufeira last year and the food was far superior to Estoril. All in all a bit deflated and would not recommend.

Overall experience of the hotel was one of friendliness, cleanliness and lovely food. We travelled with a tour and found consistency in all aspects of this hotel which was also in a good location. Staff couldn't have been more accommodating with requests in particular the GM and Karla in the restaurant. Thank you very much for making our holiday so enjoyable!

A 5 minute walk from the hotel. its across the main road from the hotel. it can be accessed by an underpass. Lisbon is a short and cheap journey from the hotel. Have a look at google maps, its between the hotel and the beach.
