“A perfect family holiday destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2011

Catia and Rui and their staff provide an excellent service with great care and attention to detail.
The apartments are well appointed and serviced daily. The setting is tranquil, the grounds and pool are beautifully maintained and it is only a short drive(a car is essential) to Luz and Burgau (our favourite beach). We love the friendly atmosphere and will certainly be going back.

Just stayed at the Montinho de Ouro for two weeks. When we first arrived my first thought was WOW. The place is so beautiful and the grounds are kept so neatly. But I can't figure out what the purpose of the Montinho de Ouro is? Is it a hotel, an apartment-hotel, a bed & breakfast or?? I am confused due to some different reasons. Cleaning is done every other day and the reception never seems to be open. The feeling of the place is more bed & breakfast, but then I miss some more contact with the people working there and maybe a guestbook etc in the room. We tryied to get some advises for what to see etc but the staff was not really that interested in helping. One day the cleaning was not done according to the every-second day rutine so I called the reception (at 17:30) and got a very sour answer about them being busy and the person (S) hung up the phone while I was asking her something - very rude...
So all together a nice place in a calm area, but they have to work very hard on their service. P.s. we didn't get a chance to rate them on grounds, as they didn't have a "Customer satisfaction evaluation form". Maybe they should get one and learn from the reviews so the place can get top recommendations.

We had the best time at this little gem of a hotel. The staff including Katia and Rui were the nicest people we had ever met. They were so helpful and cheerful and tried to fulfill every extra wish we had. The hotel itself is adorable and the room was lovely and spotless. My sister and husband and kids also stayed and had a fantastic two bedroomed apartment. It was really clean everywhere. We had breakfast in the mornings which was delicious and some nights we had food which was excellent and huge portions. The pool is great and there is two little kiddie pools. There were plenty of room to lie around the pool and enough sun beds. All in all there is nothing we could complain about. The one thing that I would recommend is a rental car as the place is a little out in the country but we loved this because it was gorgeous and quite.

Room Tip: We had a very quite room at the back facing the gardens and it was lovely. The rooms facing the poo...

Just came back from Portugal where we had a fabulous holidays.
great location for a day-trips. tranquil place where you can relax, relax and relax (you can easily drift away from your daily stressful life). Please note that you need a car when staying in Montinho de Ouro. Run by a great people who are always willing to help you (Cathia and Rui).
We had a B&B option, but also had a dinner on couple of occasions which was great (excellent value for money).

This place looks even better in real life than what it does in the photographs.Staff are friendly,helpful and efficient.Rooms are spotlessly clean and very well equipped,air-conditioning is also provided although we didn't need it as there always seemed to be a refreshing cool breeze about the complex,although it would be really handy in the hot summer months.

We cannot recommend these apartments highly enough,if you want to get away from it all,kick back and relax - this really is the place to be!

Montinho de Ouro is a diamond...

Just had 3 great days in this Hotel which is just Outside Praia Da Luz near Lagos in the Algarve. It is a small Hotel 17 rooms which range from twin bed rooms all en-suite to 2 bed self catering apartments all grouped around a two level pool. There are seperate small pools for toddlers.Its all set in pretty gardens which were full of oranges and lemon and pomegranite trees.There are also tennis courts. There is a dining area but in Winter only breakfast, however one night they cooked just for me and my wife.
My stay cost an incredible £85 for 3 days b and b for two of us. The breakfast was a variety of breads jams and croissants as well as cheese and ham plus scrambled and boiled eggs. The place has fantastic views across a valley toward Epiche.The staff were friendly and the whole plain was really well cleaned and looked after. This is a hidden gem and well worth a visit!!

I was here almost a week with my boyfriend and son. I was looking for a great and quite family vacations.
Montinho de Ouro was a perfect choice! We love our apartment: comfortable, simple and clean. It's a little bit far from the center of Lagos: you have to take your car with you. The pool was great and it has a barbecue area.
