“Luxury accommodation - Faultless!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013, and the place is stunning, absolutely faultless.

Our apartment had 3 double bedrooms (2 en-suite, 2 with balconies, 1 double aspect), large communal living room (TV, sofa, dining table, chairs, fireplace, double aspect, patio etc), kitchen (cooker, fridge/freezer, Nespresso machine, kettle, filter coffee machine, iron, ironing board, washing machine etc), laundry room, heaps of storage space, garden, garage, driveway, basically EVERYTHING!
Anemities were all provided (Molton Brown toiletries, hairdryer, bathrobes/slippers, milk, bottled water, nespresso capsules - note, no tea bags).
The pool/bar is lovely, as are the tennis courts, spa and gymnasium. There's also a 'kids villa' with games consoles!
The MR complex is definitely a luxurious one, and has the associated price-tags - I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break, leisure-break, romantic getaway, or just an excuse to flash-the-cash! Would not recommend for travellers looking for convenience, location or tight budgets. Would definitely stay here again!

Monte Rei Golf Course must be the best in Portugal.
From the minute you arrive until you leave it compares with the very best of Private Members Clubs anywhere.
Staff are well trained and the golf experience is wonderful, not one bad hole.
If you can afford the asking price, it is definitely worth it.

I would consider renting a villa in the future.

Had a 4 night stay, which doubled as a "mini moon"! The accomodation is outstanding, we stayed in a 3 bedroom villa, which was spacious, luxurious and wonderfully comfortable! The quality of service is second to none, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. All staff were happy and friendly and knowledgable regarding the local area. The food is wonderful from the amazing breakfast, pool restaurant and main Club House restaurant Jaime Perez has delivered wonderfully! The golf course is amazing, a real stadium course, with excellent practice facilities, spectacular golf holes with wonderful views. You will need you "A" to score well, however it is a wonderful experience!!! We would and have recommended Monte Rei to all our friends.

Booked a week in a 2 bedroom villa, and am having a great time. Very spacious and luxurious 3 bedroomed villa supplied, with all possible new equipment / amenities. The breakfasts in the club house are good quality and huge, the pool area and bar immaculate, the gym etc all good. Difficult to fault, possibly the pool is too cold?

The golf looks very good, but not really my game.

We have just returned from a week's stay and felt compelled to applaud the 5 star experience.

The villa was fantastic, with little touches such as molten brown toiletries and nespresso machine. The veranda restaurant and pool area great for chilling with our 2 young kids. Amazing service and quality (the chef prepared off menu when he had time for our children's meals).

The breakfast was truly an experience!

They opened a "kids villa" during our stay, which proved a great respite from the mid day sun. It was unsupervised so don't expect a kids club - just a really nice change of scenery for the kids.

We were really looked after throughout our stay, service and attention to detail fabulous. High quality and not at all pretentious. Even the golf pro was extremely patient when I booked a family lesson and my 3 year old proceeded to disassemble his ball pyramid.... The golf course is truly stunning and the practice area beautiful.

We will definitely be returning. We love the eastern algarve and the great trips accessible (Seville, Tavira, Cabanas, Ayamonte, beach at Manta Rota).

Thank you so much a for a truly memorable/fabulous holiday.

I didn't stay there but only played the outstanding golf course. And what an great golfing experience in Monte Rei ! From the very first second you arrive to the impressive clubhouse, we felt like a VIP : valet parking, Callaway balls pyramid at driving range, assigned employee following us to practice area and cleaning used clubs, same person waiting for us next to the 18th green to offer a little engraved bag tag, tee time every 12 minutes, etc. And what about the course itself ! Monte Rei is one of the finest golf courses I have ever played ! It’s a challenging layout with most holes to be played off elevated tee box to catch fairways and greens settled downhill. Condition and design are nothing short of stunning ! A must play !

We stayed as a family of 4 with our sons aged 9 and 16, for 9 nights. We stayed last August and this is the only time we have returned to the same place twice . The villas are amazing spacious and beautifully furnished . We spent most of our time at the beautiful pool. There are plenty of beds and towels . Also near the pool is a very well equipped gym and tennis courts that we all made full use of . Although this is a golf resort , we didn't use the facilities , however the greens looked very well maintained . The staff are so helpful and friendly , nothing is too much trouble . I would recommend taking the package with breakfast which is a fantastic 3 course affair, negating the need for any lunch ! I think it is priced similarly to other resorts further west , which makes it comparatively expensive for the eastern algarve , but we love the east so much better , so it's worth it in my opinion.
