    The Monte Santo Resort ticked all the boxes to make our short stay memorable. The staff were extremely helpful, especially the receptionist who patiently directed us to the Resort over the phone on our first day when we got lost. The suite we stayed in was of an extremely high standard, among the most highly specked we have ever stayed in.

    Luxurious, spacious, clean modern accomodation in a very secure family friendly resort. Staff could not be more helpful in a professional and supportive way.

    Very good

    We were impressed with view and outlook from our town house, the quietness was very good although there were a lot of young children. The whole setting and buildings were lovely.

    We did not think it was 5 star. The club house did not match up to our expectations. There were several things we had to complain about the house we were in although they acted quickly to please us.

    Superb

    Very impressed with the quality of the accommodation and with the outdoor and indoor swimming pool complex. We did not get a chance to sample lunch or dinner but the breakfasts were very good. All staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient.

    I did not understand the rule that babies/toddlers with nappies could not use the pools. Babies/toddlers wearing swimming nappies should be able to use pools and I have never seen this rule before.

    Superb

    The suite was fantastic. Bed, sheets etc., carpeting, bathroom fittings, facilities in room all top class. Leisure facilities like gym and pool were terrific.

    Smell of smoke in the suite.

    The hotel was a beautiful hotel. Our suite was gorgoeous really well equipped and comfortable. Very good beakfast selection and staff were friendly and helpful at all times. Pools were lovely and always plenty of sun loungers(Spetember when we visited) Loved the fact there was a complimntary shuttle bus every 2 hours into the village. Very relaxing week there

    I did not like that there was a spa advertised on the website but in fact it was an area by the pool that u have to arrange someone from their sister hotel in Villamoura to come over for massages hence we did not use it. At the hotel it was advertised as the Spa Outdoor Experience but to me a massage table by a kiddies pool and it was also where they give out the towels is not a spalike experience.

    Everythig! Loved it from start to finish! The apartment was fab, the resort was lovely.

    A little bit of a trek to town, but you can use the shuttle which is great

    Fantastic spacious accommodation, the townhouse we stayed in was well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Pool area was beautiful and also the separate little pools around the complex were a nice touch too.

    Staff in restaurant could be better mannered and friendlier.

    Superb

    The resort was very well laid out with beautiful townhouses, with easy access to the pool.

    It would have been nice to have a little welcome pack in our kitchen or at least access to one - milk, water, etc..

    Superb

    Great family suite with excellent equipment, good facilities, decent guests, helpful staff.

    Staff sometimes bit overwhelmed at breakfast; very willing but dishes could be monitored and replaced quicker. If food was there then plates might not be so it was a game every day but it was high season! Avoid Carvueiro.

    Superb

    Wonderful facilities, quietness, villages are very nice and confortable. There was a quiet environment even being in Algarve and in August.

    The area next to the sports circuit was not very well cared but that was being solved when we left.

    Very elegant, the suite was very spacious and well decorated. The pool was beautiful and the breakfast was good.

    Too far from the beach and the shuttle only went twice a day.

    We stayed 2 nights at the Monte Santo Resort. There is 5 of us, myself my husband and 3 girls ages 15,10 & 6. We all enjoyed our stay very much, we stayed in a 3 bedroom luxury suite, which was huge, and very luxurious. The staff we very welcoming and helpful, we were allowed to book in early even though the suite wasn't ready we were allowed to use all the facilities and the receptionist phoned us to tell us the suite was ready. There was plenty of sun beds and the pool is large and child friendly. Would definitely recommend and Would go again.

    Plenty of room in the general pool area and enough sun loungers. The accommodation was adequate but not luxurious or 5*. There was always a good choice for breakfast and children always seemed to be welcomed. The restaurant staff in the morning were helpful and worked very hard to clear tables but sometimes one had to wait a long while for a cup of coffee/tea (why can't they just let you have a pot of coffee/tea). We stayed in a villa and found the downstairs spacious and it was nice to have a pool just outside which was shared amongst 10/12 villas.

    Have stayed at other 4* Portugeese hotels and in comparison with the facilities offered here can only say that this is not a hotel providing 5* service. The bedrooms and bathroom were cleaned every day but not the kitchen. Toiletries were provided at the start of the stay and even though not totally used were removed and not replenished. The beds were comfortable, the sheets were clean but had holes in them, and were not changed during our stay. The swimming pool areas are lovely but more shade should be provided. There was a general feeling that the hotel was just managing to provide a passable service but at a low budget. We paid a reasonable price for the holiday but would not have been happy had we paid more.

    Fabulous

    nice rooms, friendly staff, you pay for what you get these days. We have a 16 and 10 year old one likes to sunbathe the other swimming so this holiday suited us as a family. The breakfast was nice plenty to choose from, dinner a bit over priced for what you got. We preffered to eat in caverio at the grill which was lovely with excellent service. The rooms had fresh towels daily and you also get a towel from poolside daily which was great. The kitchen is well equiped with all the latest modcons. Overall we had a lovely family holiday, and would definately stay again but next time probably get a car as the local super has shut down however it only cost 5-7 euros for a taxi to get to the large supermarket and 12 euros to get to the nearest waterpark which is well worth the visit you can also purchase the tickets at the hotel reception to save queing when arriving there. If you would like to go to the marina or go out on boat trips you will need a car as by taxi your talking 50 euros, so we didn't bother visiting these attractions as we were only there for one week if going for 2 weeks definately get a car so you can venture further.

    the dinner wasn't that good for the price, I could cook better but loads of other places to eat out in caverio which is a 15-20 minute walk
