Friendliness of the hotel staff. Good location.
Difficult access to some of the hotel premises for senior and handicapped guests.
The pool area and crazy golf, access to the beach, the food was very good with a large variety. The staff in the bar by the pool very helpful as allthe other staff were and worked very hard and long hours especially on the sunday for the Hotels 50th Anniversary which we attended after the football match. Would like to come back in the near future.
Arrived at the hotel just before 11am, nowing that our triple room would not be ready until 2pm. Checked at 2pm told to come back at 2.30pm, went back told 3pm. Other people in our party who had booked triple rooms had theirs at 2pm. In the end we had to wait until 3.30pm. The beds could be a little softer.
Relaxing, comfortable, good size rooms, close to beach and town, friendly, international, clean, great breakfast, polite and helpful staff. Good size pool and safe for children.
Although 50 years old and recently internally renovated, external maintenance must be a continuing event. A bit like the Forth Road Bridge syndrome in the UK. Not a problem, but always noticeable.
Helpful staff especially during all the worry about suspended flights from Faro airport last week! Polite and helpful staff on reception and the standard of our bedroom cleanliness was excellent! Thankyou for a wonderful stay. I am hopefully buying a home in Vila Real and Montegordo was a wonderful vantage point from which we could base our daily excursions and viewing trips with Este Algarve estates in Vila Nova de Cacela. Only problem- we wish we could have stayed longer! We got home to the Midlands even earlier than expected and really would love to stay again if we can later in the year and try out all the algarvian food and culture!
We thought that the breakfasts were very average compared to the rest of the hotel services and mass production lead to poor quality end product. For this reason we ate out each night but we loved our room and the rest of the hotel and it's luxurious setting right on the beach!
Good value for money, good foood, good location in respect of beach and nearby shops/town centre. Private parking adequate.
Balcony a bit small compared to other hotels in the area
We had booked a seaview room but for some reason there wasn't one available so they gave us a bungalow instead! Very nice, including its own sun terrace. You have the choice of sun loungers on the beach (10 Euros a day for two) or around the hotel pool (free). Breakfast was basic but ok and we did not eat dinner there - too many restaurants around the town to be tied down each evening.
The hotel staf they were extremly helpful and went out of there way to make sure you came back again
I found the entertainment room was inadiquate for the number of people staying there
Everything. The staff were,as all Portuguese people are, friendly and helpful.Breakfasts were good too.
Location is perfect; very old-fashioned hotel, but that has its charm. Breakfast buffet is good.
Hotelpersonnel acts as if you are not there; no kindness, no attention whatsoever
Overlooking the beach and had a balcony.
