Yes, it's tired. But it's so comfortable. I've been coming here since 1982, although I haven't been for maybe 20 years. It's still fab, I love it. Maybe it hasn't changed, maybe it needs modernising, but everyone is so friendly, it is (and I mean this, seriously) it's immaculate. It couldn't be better presented. The piano bar takes me back,...

All hotel staff were very helpfull and polite. The room was clean, nice breakfast served and it has a great location, just above the Strip street, very close to restaurants. The pool area is also very nice. Definitely great value for money!To recommend and repeat, surely.

This property is an odd one. Must have been the place to see and be seen in 70's Albufeira ? I stayed here years ago on a package holiday and it was the place to be . It was pricey back then but now you can get a great deal to stay there on booking.com ,late rooms etc. The rooms... More

My wife and I have just returned from this hotel, it seemed really quiet but I guess its early in the "Season" for them. The staff were very polite and courteous but the hotel seemed bland, soulless and very dated, the breakfast was just about passable, the swimming pool was cold and really unusable, there was no tea and coffee...

Sure this hotel is in need of an update but to be honest there is something quite quirky about it. And at the end of the day, it's a cheap hotel to stay at, the pool is quiet, the rooms have a great view over albufeira and the sea. There is a free shuttle bus to the beach every day... More

My wife and I stayed in the Hotel Montechoro for 1 night prior to joining our family for a villa holiday in the area. The reason we selected this hotel was that i had fond memories of a family holiday there in the mid 1980s. Little did i know that nothing had changed in terms of decor. Total renovation required....
