My now husband and I married at Vila Monte in June and we can't praise the hotel and team enough. Carla (Hotel Manager) looked after us throughout, she is such a wonderful person and a real credit to the hotel, indeed all the staff couldn't do enough for us. They really pulled out all the stops to make our day... More

The accommodation is set in a number of buildings in superbly maintained grounds and there are 3 outdoor pools so it's easy to find a quiet spot to soak up the sun, have a swim and just chill out. The quality and decor of our junior suite was excellent and the self-service breakfast had good choices and well-prepared food. Elsewhere... More

Vilamonte is a stunning resort, with all around a green landscape. Peaceful, with a great view until yhe sea, every detail is what you need. Great pools, gardens, practice golf course and 3 pro drives. In few minutes you go to Olhao and Faro to enjoy the islands in the natural reserve. The restaurant on the terrace is something unique....

Spent 3 days with my wife and our baby in Vila Monte. The 3 pools are nice and so instead of only one crowded you can have a more peacefull stay. A car is needed as the hotel is far away from everything (but quite close to the highway which is good). We didn't try the restaurante. The breakfast is... More

We came to this hotel couple years ago and stayed in the suite. It is a proper suite more than 150m2!! Huge bath room, big tube for very romantic bath, private sun bathing area with tables, sofas, outside jacuzzi, etc. I keep this place in my memory forever, due to the room facilities. As for the remaining areas, most of... More

Back from a short stay here in Vila Monte... Just hope next time will be longer. Booked a suite at a very good price and would highly recommend. However, wifi was non existent in the suite. Breakfast was good but there is room for improvement. The continental breakfast was really good .....however, the cooked breakfast options not so good. The... More

The rooms are spacious and have all the facilities you would expect from this kind of establishment. The restaurant as usual was impeccable. The... More

We had a great week at the Vila Monte Hotel. Staff were extremely friendly and courteous and helped us out with a one or two problems which we encountered, unrelated to the hotel. The location is beautiful and the grounds are very pretty. Our room/apartment was spacious and clean and had good air conditioning. The restaurant was classy and the... More

Have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Vila Monte. I was recommended by a work colleague of mine who stayed back in March. I booked through SLH so we received a lovely upgrade on arrival. We had an early flight into Faro so arrived at the hotel around 10am, I had informed them prior but was told... More

This hotel probably has seen better days, but it was still a good find. Very pleasant and helpful staff, but pool mattresses and pillows should not be left out in the rain. Also, the grounds nd pathways need to be better groomed The restaurant food was not so exciting, but due to the distance from other alternatives you still tend... More
