We visited monte santo last month for 10 days. We stayed in a one bedroom deluxe apartment and couldn't have wished for better accommodation. The place was fantastic! Fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher and washer drier. 2 bathrooms and a huge sun terrace with a double bed lounger and parasol. You really don't need to leave the apartment to sunbathe....

We took our infant daughter on the first family holiday and found the whole experience great. From checking in to checking out, all of the staff are very helpful and professional. The best element is that the complex is modern and tastefully furnished, has all the facilities of a hotel (bar, room service, gym, spa etc) with the convenience of... More

Absolutely perfect in every way, stunningly beautiful hotel. Our rooms were cleaned daily. The service goes over and beyond, stunning location just a short walk in to town and a couple of lovely beaches, would most definitely visit again. No complaints whatsoever. Food and drink were beautiful. Loved every minute, Obrigada Monte Santo! Until next time.....

A truly fabulous place for a family holiday. When we visited in mid-June the place near felt full or crowded. We had a 2 bed ground floor apartment, which I would recommend to anybody with young children as there is then some freedom to run around and not worry about the stairs. It was spacious and airy and exceptionally well... More

We stayed 2 weeks at the Monte Santo at the start of June. We are a family of four kids ranging from 6 to 2 years. We stayed in the houses. The accomodation was excellent, the best compared to other 5 star resorts in the Algarve. We were situated in an extremely quiet corner house which we requested. The houses... More

As a resort this really is quite excellent. Firstly ever single member of the resort team was courteous and extremely helpful whenever we asked for anything. The accommodation was a one bedroom apartment and it was spotless, very comfortable, and was refreshed everyday by housekeeping. The food in the restuarant was to a very high standard and reasonably priced too.... More
