We found this hotel peaceful and had wonderful views of the beach from our large balcony on the top floor. The food was quite good and plenty of it although a little repetitive. Drinks were quite expensive but the bar staff were great. Entertainment was OK some nights. We had a group of dancers one night in traditional costume who...

We stayed here for 2 nights and left after one. We were in an outside apartment which faced a car park and when we opened our bedroom window at the back there was a market stall the other side hanging clothes on the outside of our window. It was so bad we had to laugh really and luckily it was...

My wife and I stayed in Vasco da Gama during our holidays. The hotel offers parking for the car, the staff is very friendly and the location is incredible. The moment you step off the hotel you are on the beach. The swimming pool is very good and offers lots of space to have fun and enjoy the sun. The...

Excellent value and best hotel in Monte Gordo, and pleasure to stay for two weeks. Plenty of places to chose from for lunch time and evening meals within walking 10 15 minutes. Style old fashioned but best hotel stay

Four of us stayed here for two weeks from June 13th. We arrived at around 10.30 and were allowed to leave our luggage and told to come back at 2.00 when our rooms would be ready for us. They weren't. We eventually got given the keys to our rooms at around 3.30ish (two rooms on the second floor and not...

This is the second time visiting the Vasco da Gama and as enjoyable as the first time. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts really good. The only problem we found is that there are no longer English channels on the tv but this is a general problem in Portugal and not the hotel's fault. We will...

As much as I had read previous reviews, I was still surprised at how old fashioned the bedroom and bathroom were and was initially disappointed. The wall and floor tiles were definitely 1960's and the storage/tables were dark, heavy wood. I had requested a high floor and got floor 5 which is just under the roof. However, we had a...
