Friendly and professional staff. Spacious and comfortable rooms. The bed linen and pillows are extremely comfy. You literally sleep like an angel. The hotel is somewhat old but well maintained. Moreover, it adds to its charm setting it apart from the mainstream hotels at the area. I've been lodged in two other main hotels in Monte Gordo in the past,... More

We stayed in early July before the school holiday rush and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet and relaxed the hotel was. We stayed on a B&B basis and were given a single storey garden apartment, separate from the main hotel building. We were initially disappointed as we had booked a hotel room with balcony. However, once we had looked... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Vasco da Gama for a second time in May 2014. I must say I found the service and attitude of the staff on the desk unpleasant and unhelpful. I had asked for a room on an upper floor, we were given one on the 1st floor. The bathroom of the room we were... More

We found this hotel peaceful and had wonderful views of the beach from our large balcony on the top floor. The food was quite good and plenty of it although a little repetitive. Drinks were quite expensive but the bar staff were great. Entertainment was OK some nights. We had a group of dancers one night in traditional costume who... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and left after one. We were in an outside apartment which faced a car park and when we opened our bedroom window at the back there was a market stall the other side hanging clothes on the outside of our window. It was so bad we had to laugh really and luckily it was... More

My wife and I stayed in Vasco da Gama during our holidays. The hotel offers parking for the car, the staff is very friendly and the location is incredible. The moment you step off the hotel you are on the beach. The swimming pool is very good and offers lots of space to have fun and enjoy the sun. The... More

Excellent value and best hotel in Monte Gordo, and pleasure to stay for two weeks. Plenty of places to chose from for lunch time and evening meals within walking 10 15 minutes. Style old fashioned but best hotel stay
