We had a great holiday at the Vasco da Gama hotel in Monte Gordo. We spend one week here and stayed in a large room on the fourth floor. Nice room and kept immaculately clean by the fantastic housekeeping staff. Pools were lovely - the small pool was a bit too cold in the mornings but warmed up nicely in... More

Vasco Da Gama is a great value hotel. The pool area is lovely and the amazing golden beach is at the back. Towel rental for a €10 deposit is excellent for the beach or pool. We loved our stay. Fab communal areas (living room and games room) also. Monte Gordo is a fairly quiet area (no night clubs etc) which... More

The best location in Monte Gordo, it's literally on the beach. Definitely a 3 star plus hotel or a 4 star run-down hotel. The 5th it´s the upper floor and also the hottest (good when not in summertime) , on the other hand you don't have any noise from upper neighbors. Any way, there's a good functioning air-conditioning. It has... More

We have been returning to this hotel for years now and still love it. Great location, beautifully maintained and just gets better and better. Same staff here year after year and the warmest of welcomes - feels like coming home. Love the attention to detail - like wonderful flower arrangements, lovely antique furniture and smiley people. Reception great, bar welcoming,... More

Rooms are being updated but the shower is a power shower and there was always plenty of hot water. Excellent breakfast with so much variety to suit all tastes. Pool is a good size and cold and refreshing on hot days. Plenty of room for loungers around the pool and more were it out as needed. On the beach for... More

Lovely traditional hotel situated right on the beach We have been there before a few times over the years the first time was in the 1980s.the resort is not as bustling as Albefuira and others but ideal for a laid back Holiday

This hotel was great value for money. Usually you have to pay for extras ie fridge, safe, remote & air conditioning - but not in this hotel. Also you can rent beach towels with a refundable deposit - so save on weight in your case!! Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Free Internet in REception - also printer to print... More

We use the bar at the Vasco Da Gamma in the evenings. The entertainment is varied each evening, a mixture of music, dance and magic. The magic show on a Wednesday is aimed at children even though it does not start until 10.00 pm. The bar staff are welcoming and attentive, the selection of cocktails is vast as is the... More
