We have just returned from a 3 day exclusive stay at Monte do Casal at the beginning of October.

We also stayed at Monte do Casal in September and we had a superb holiday. Everything from the warm welcome when we arrived to the small details such as the chilled hand towels and sorbet offered poolside by the waiter, made our holiday. We are very surprised and quite frankly find difficulty in understanding the many complaints made by Mr.... More

We drove up the Cypress lined cobbled drive, past the beautiful gardens and when we received a warm welcome from the receptionist and a glass of chilled champagne, we felt at that moment completely relaxed and we had arrived somewhere rather special. Our beautiful room was overlooking the garden and a pond with koi fish and a waterfall near the... More

We stayed at the Monte do Casal for nearly a week in August. As it didn't meet our expectations we decided to leave a day early. The hotel prides itself on being n SLH hotel and the service of its staff was outstanding. Originally in room 14 (a twin) we spent the first night with the smell of sewerage coming... More

We stayed at Monte do Casal in August while visiting the Algarve. It is a beautiful escape, especially during the high tourist season of the summer. It is conveniently tucked away, yet a 20 minute drive from the beaches, a 45 min drive from Sagres. The staff is very accommodating - with food requests, as well as serving a gran... More
