Activities at Palacio Estoril Hotel

We highly recommend visiting the famed Estoril Casino which has nightly extravagant shows but also holds fame to inspiring Ian Flemming's James bond character and Casino Royale book. During World War II the casino was also used as a rendezvous for spies and their handlers with many clandestine meetings carried out right under her roof. 

With so many cycling routes around Estoril, especially following the coastline, hiring a bike can also be a fantastic way to get out and explore the region.
