This is our second time here staying in one of the town houses -adults and older teenagers. We found the house very comfortable and clean - maids cleaned and serviced the house each day, quite late in afternoon but that did not bother us. We had practically sole use of the plunge pool and surrounding patio area the whole time.... More

We spent 8 days at the Monte Santo Resort in July/August 2014 with our two teenage sons. On arrival we were upgraded to a townhouse which was spacious, well designed and elegantly furnished. We had a balcony off the master bedroom and a lovely terrace/garden off the open plan living area overlooking a shared private pool. The resort was very... More

We have recently returned from a holiday at monte santo and had a wonderful time. We were worried having read some of the negative reviews but we experience nothing but good service and an excellent resort. The kids club with Ana, Carmen and Deborah was good entertainment for the children (although our children used it sparingly) and our children adored... More

This is a quality resort devoted for families. The appartments are modern, spacious, well decorated and offer everything you may need during the stay. Large and beautiful pool and plenty space for relax. The breakfast was quite good and it is possible to sit outside by the pool which is great. You feel safe and happy in there. Staff is... More

When you read the reviews you will be amazed. Personally I find it helpful to understand a little bit about the reviewer to see if they are like me. I am married, a middle aged professional person with three children aged 7.5,2. I dont mind spending on holidays because it is valuable time, but if I do spend I want... More

This is a commercial resort not a tourist resort i.e. all the townhouses and apartments are privately owned and let through Monte Santo - generating cash is the priority - not customer satisfaction. That said the accommodation is of a high standard and maid service is good. It took a couple of days to get the basic cooking equipment, frying... More

A lovely complex and accommodation was excellent, very comfortable and cleanliness outstanding. Main pool is good size with plenty of beds and umbrellas and pool towels provided. The local town has a good choice of restaurants ( good ones need booking in busy times) and bars but need a taxi ( if no car, parking not easy in town either)... More

Just a short stay at Monte Santo this time (sadly)...as ever, everything was in order and the staff (again) were excellent (Jose Boto deserves specific praise!)...we have stayed here for approximately 25 nights over the last few years and it is great to see how small improvements are being made (not that many are needed)! Will definitely be back...and thoroughly... More

We stayed here for two weeks in July. We were upgraded to a townhouse which was towards the back of the resort. This was convenient because it was near the back gate which lead towards the town. The view we had from our patio area wasn't nice at all. It overlooked the bin area were the rubbish is taken and... More

Just spent 2 weeks at the resort and had a really good time - we had a two bed room apartment close to the main pool (requested as advised by an earlier reviewer as some of them especially the townhouses are some distance away) - many of the previous reviews capture all of the many good points about the resort,...
