You can get hotels with more refinements but this is one of the best value for money hotels we have visited. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff and limited but very good quality food. A real mix of elderly and young sporty athletes on winter training. A good place and worth your money. Great hotel.

Excellent hotel, great service, lovely staff, great spa, reasonable prices. Food good, limited choice but excellent quality. Central location fir beach and shops. Would recommend this hotel. The resort has a lovely long boardwalk with plenty of seated areas.

This is a nice, comfortable hotel but it is totally let down by the restaurant experience. The tables are so close together in the dining room that sometimes it was impossible to get out without asking another guest to pull in their chair. If other diners wanted to get past our table to get to the buffet their bottom would literally brush our table (even when they walked sideways). The food from the hot food buffet was rarely hot and sometimes barely warm. I'm not one of those serial complainers, and have left this review because I've spoken to other guests who feel exactly the same. By the end of the holiday we ate out every night, even though we'd paid for 1/2 board.

I really, truly hate writing negative or even average reviews, but my experience at this hotel left a lot to be desired. This is a hotel for older people, to be frank. Nearly every person I saw, with the exception of the staff and one or two middle-aged women, was 60+. Do not bring your children here, because they will not enjoy themselves. We’ll start with the positives: - I stayed in room 109 - lovely use of space, very nice balcony with a lovely view. VERY clean. - Cleaners all throughout the hotel were very polite and lovely. - The pool areas were gorgeous, very clean & the Bali beds were a delight. The spa area was good too. - Hotel very close to the beach. Check in was quick (more on this later) - The interior design is interesting! Not for everyone obviously, but I liked it. And now the negatives: - The biggest flaw in this hotel is the restaurant, particularly at dinner times. Very busy. - I cannot think of a word other than rancid to describe the food. I am not a fussy eater, but I genuinely wouldn’t serve the food they provided to my dog. I’ll attach a photo of the ‘salmon’ they served. The food was either dry, soggy, cold or just plain freezer food - veg, potatoes, everything. Felt like an Iceland showcase. Please do yourselves a favour and skip dinner at this hotel: it is not worth it. Breakfast however, ok! - The (one) waitress they had was always smiling which was lovely to see. The men were far too full on - the younger ones were lovely but the older gentlemen gave the impression they’d rather be anywhere else. I got approached asking what I’d like to drink whilst I was at the buffet which I thought was odd and quite rude. The constant checking up by multiple staff was also very uncomfortable - I’m trying to eat, please stop trying to make conversation. I got charged at checkout for a beer I hadn’t asked for and didn’t drink (I don’t drink beer…), but I wasn’t about to argue over €4. - The very odd one way entry system makes sense in terms of keeping up with who’s been into the restaurant, but is potentially dangerous for disabled people as the steps out of the restaurant aren’t overly accessible. - The check-in was quick, but too quick. No explanation of where anything was or even a mini map of the hotel. - Alma Spa was lovely, but not €17 euros lovely. Not everything worked. You also have to pay for a swimming cap on top of that. Overall - this hotel is not worthy of 4 stars. It’s barely even worth 2. Please save your money and look elsewhere. 3/5.

The hotel is lovely. Staff are friendly and helpful. I would not recommend for children as it’s definitely more for adults (even solo travellers love it here). I’m a fussy eater but have found something each day. We went half board, yes you do have to pay for your drinks at dinner (either put on a tab to your room or pay straight away), but not at breakfast. Some of the food was cold and they do have a microwave but this only happened twice for us. Hotel is clean and the pool is cold (Is November) but it’s up to you if you want to use it. The spa is extra (even the in door pool) A five minutes walk to the lovely beach which is miles long. Lots of bars and restaurants. It has been very quiet here but can imagine it being busy in the summer months. I would have given 5 but due to the food and spa I have given it 4.

I normally go on holiday to North Portugal but decided to give the Algarve a try. I love Monte Gordo and I loved Alcazar Hotel. All the staff were so friendly and helpful and I felt comfortable immediately. My room was very spacious and clean. The purpose of my trip was just to relax and this is exactly what I did. There were plenty of sunbeds but I spent most of my day on the swinging day beds. I also went into the gym which was extremely clean and had plenty of equipment. The beach on Monte Gordo is lovely and clean. There are plenty of restaurants in the area which cater for all tastes. I would definitely like to return again. Thank you.

Nice clean hotel with a great location with the beach only 5 mins walk away and shops & restaurants very close by. Room was nice & large with two bedrooms, but the bathroom was very small with a bath and overhead shower which flooded over several days as the shower screen was not a tight fit, so much so that obviously it was a continuous problem as at least 4 inches had been cut off the bathroom door as the veneer was peeling off at the bottom!. The food was ok but very bland although a good selection was on offer each night & breakfast was slightly better. The restaurant staff, all male, were miserable & didn’t engage at all with us…..perhaps some training in customer service might help. Even though we were half board we thought we may get a complimentary bottle of water with our meal, but no and tea or coffee after dinner would have been nice, but you have to go to the bar and pay for it!! Pool area was very pleasant, plenty of sun beds & the grounds were immaculate. I probably would use the hotel in the future but only if I was confident that the negative issues I’ve mentioned were improved upon.

Lovely room with a big balcony and a view across the huge forest next door. We had B&B and the breakfast included a huge selection, including continental classics and a Portuguese twist on traditional British breakfast elements. The pool is big with plenty of loungers and a bar/snack bar. There is a gym which looks very well equipped but you have to pay extra and it doesn’t open till 9am. There were various entertainments on in the bar in the evening, though we typically ventured into town instead, which was only a few hundred metres away. There was no kettle in the room, which threw this tea addict into a panic, but we asked at reception and they gave us one. Helpful staff. All round we had a very nice, lazy stay.
