My friend and I wanted to visit this region for the birdlife and stumbled across this hotel by accident (having had an email enquiry forwarded on by another hotel which had closed). What an amazing place. Comfortable, clean, relaxed atmosphere, lovely staff, excellent food and service, stunning views over the surrounding countryside, fantastic facilities.... what more can one say? Everything... More

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at the Hotel and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is very beautiful and so are the surroundings. The rooms are quiet comfortable and the staff is beyond expectation. Besides this, the food was very good and there was a clear intention to promote regional dishes and products. All our needs were... More

We spent 1 night at the hotel. Arrived in the afternoon and enjoyed the nice pool and bar facility. The dinner was buffet-style, ok but nothing special. Breakfast was ample and good. Very friendly staff. We were in room 001 which was big, clean and comfortable for a family with 1 child. However no view and a very tiny bathroom.... More

This hotel is worth the price, if only for the splendid pool and cheerful rooms. We had good sandwiches ariu d the pool and a terrific breakfast on the veranda. The town offers nothing except for the thermal baths. These were overpriced and not as advertised in terms of the claimed benefits of the waters. There are better thermal baths... More

Enjoyed our one night stay as part of an organised tour. Would have liked to stay longer to enjoy the pool and gardens. Lovely modern hotel with pleasant art work and sculptures. Limited staff due to a downturn in tourism generally in the area. Don't let this discourage you from staying. Plenty of parking for bicycles, cars and motorbikes. Lovely... More

This hotel has lovely facilities - the pool and gardens, the hotel itself, public areas and the staff are very friendly and helpful - but you don't go here for the food. It is extraordinary that a hotel of this calibre doesn't offer an a la carte menu. For lunch and dinner they have a buffet, which might be OK... More

Monfortinho área is very hot in the summer, especialy in August, and nothing better than swim in a swimming pool with a beautiful scenary and with infinity fall. The Hotel personal is very polite and kind and the hotel restaurante is very good in local traditional dishes.

Stayed for two nights with wife and two kids. The hotel is beautiful, the gardens and view astonishing. The rooms are quite large, clean and well maintained. The breakfast is good, with local cheese and jams. The staff is kind and helpful. The only bad thing to point is the lack of staff at the bar.
