We stayed here for one night and it was beautiful. The building has been well taken care of and it is fun to admire the details. The pool and patio is perfect on a hot day, the rooms are clean and spacious, the surrounding area has lots of great Tourist attractions - we recommend it

The Monte Alerta is not a hotel as such, but a 'rural retreat'. We stayed for just one night. The owners were incredibly friendly and supportive, the room was excellent, it had reasonably fast free wifi, and the breakfast was a massive buffet. It would be particularly good for families, as there were so many other things to do and... More

We had so much pleasure to stay in this hotel. Nothing was missing... Pool, sun, cocktails at the pool, animals: horses, cats, donkey, etc.. We even adopted a very young kitty on our last day at the hotel! And what a great decoration of the hotel!! And well located near to beautiful Monsaraz! We will be back

Heading south to sunny Alentejo for a romantic weekend was such a great idea! Monte Alerta is a gem, very well decorated and comfortable with beautiful outside areas; the owners delightfully nice and helpful and gorgeous breakfasts. We loved it!

This quaint, rustic and rural 'hotel' was amazing. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Beautiful rooms, gardens, sitting area/living room, breakfast rooms - all comfortable and uniquely decorated. The breakfast was delicious - fresh fruits, cheese, meats, and baked breads. We loved the cats/kittens running around the place. My only regret is I wish we could have stayed longer!

Great place for a weekend get-a-way close to the castle of Monsaraz. It is warm and cozy, the staff is nice and helpful, rooms are spacious and comfortable and breakfast is homemade and delicious. Overall a very nice experience in the Portuguese countryside.
