Top 10 Beach Hotels on the Lisbon Coast

The best and most recommended hotels, based on guest reviews, facilities and location.

    Palácio Estoril Hotel

  • 1. Palácio Estoril Hotel
  • The grandest hotel on the Lisbon coast since the 1930s, it currently exudes the elegance of a bygone era, recalling the days when author Ian Fleming was a guest and was inspired by the casino next door to write his James Bond novels (the hotel was featured in the James Bond film "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service"). Past the manicured lawns in front is the postcard beach Tamariz, but guests often prefer to swim in the hotel’s large swimming pool. Other facilities include a fine restaurant and spa.
