Arrived early afternoon and told room not ready but staff on reception friendly (today*) and dealt with matter well and room was ready when we returned a couple of hours later. * Staff on reception (which has the smallest no. of working hours I've ever seen!) are mixed to say the least. One lady just ignored us and continued filling... More

I have been sitting on this review for a few days in a bid to be as objective as I can be about our 7 day stay at Monte Dourado. We checked in on the 3 September rather late in the evening and were delighted by the beauty of our room in the Hibisco block of the resort. Very large,... More

Excellent apartment, large rooms lots of space and good facilities in apartment, pools alwYs good and clean and looked after, and you can always get sunbeds at any time of day even in August that's a big thumbs up! Only downside of resort is its on a big hill! And it's steep!

Started coming here in about 2007; this was after falling in love with Carvoeiro several years earlier and staying elsewhere. About 2012, we were told that this was now a dated site and that it was losing out to newer or improved locations in Carvoeiro. But hey, after a brief lull, we came back and it still has the magic.... More

The Garden had the sun all afternoon and even had its own... More

This complex has five pools and just 5 minutes walk to the main square and the beach. The apartments are furnished to a very high standard and the reception team are always on hand to deal with trips, car hire, taxis and any other matters (no matter how small).

Wonderful resort - clean, well cared for and superb location - just a short (hilly) walk to the town which is quaint, has facilities to cater for all. I have been back many times and love this place! Several pools, spacious apartments and lovely gardens.
