The Palácio first opened its doors in the 1930's and during the Second World War, due to Portugal's neutrality, housed many royal families who had gone into exile in Estoril, which became known as the "Coast of Kings". The Hotel Palácio was the chosen home of many members of European royalty and was also the haunt of British and German spies. To this day this venue is still popular with Royals, nobility and film stars alike.
A stay here is like traveling back in time, but on a journey that also continues into the present and future. After many renovations and refurbishments over the years, today's Palácio Hotel retains many of the original characteristics as well as all the comforts and convenience of a modern luxury five-star hotel. The charm and ambience of exclusiveness is combined with timeless luxury and sophistication.
