It's a nice 3 star hotel. We almost feel like home. It's less than 5 minute walk from the beach. It's very clean and the staff is so nice. And there are two "guest" cats who roam around (if you love animal, you'll enjoy this company). Breakfast is very nice, with many choices. All around there are bars, restaurants, can't complain of nowhere to go. The negative is the parking. It has limited park for hotel clients, and it's chaos to try to find a parking space nearby.

Monte Gordo was recommended by friends....it is a quiet picturesque area with a long beautiful beach. ..ideal for sun bathing (at a charge) and for walking
The Casablanca Inn is situated two streets from Sea Front in a concrete jungle which limits the sun.it is quiet with very small pool and sun terrace.
It is spotlessly clean and probably the most obliging and cheerful people there were our cleaner and one young man Fabio on reception .
Breakfast was adequate with noticeable absence of any Fresh Fruit and sometimes barely warm food which was often in short supply
Three course dinner was again adequate but limited and small portions and rarely served with a "smile" except for those guests who had been returning to this hotel for 5 consecutive years.There is music twice a week in the bar. If you are not an animal lover Beware...2cats sleep permanently on seats in the bar area.
We would return to Monte Gordo as it is totally free of rowdy guests, has plenty of cafes and restaurants and nearby hotels that have nightly entertainment....try the White House on the front for reasonable snacks ,drinks and music nights.
Also take the ferry to Spain lovely day out bus services are good and ferry cheap.
Check weather forecast unfortunately we had two days of rain and cold winds ....but apparently this is not normal for May

Room Tip: Well you can try a request when you book or ask for a change of rooms when you arrive....both reques...

We spent a week at the Casablanca Inn in April 2013 and could not have been happier. The hotel was clean with comfortable seating areas. The staff were friendly and spoke some English, I can't criticise this as their English was a million times better than my Portuguese. Our room was spacious and had a large bathroom, a special mention to the almighty shower, no dribbly jobbie here, you could pressure wash your drive with it. Sheets and towels were changed daily. The TV was an old 14 inch portable which showed local stuff plus BBC1 and ITV, let's be honest you don't go 1800km to watch TV but it is nice to have your native language chatting away in the background when you are in your room. A safe was present in the room and key hire was 10 Euro for the week with a 5 Euro deposit. A fridge was provided and was free to use. One thing of note is there was only a single electrical socket to use so I would advise taking an adapter that is also a socket doubler.

We were B&B so I can only comment on the breakfast which was pretty good and plentiful. You could make up a full English, German or Dutch if that makes sense so the combinations of what you could have was massive.

I'm not a cat lover and I know lots of people comment on the cats which meander around the main entrance and social area but they were no trouble and I'll be honest I thought they added to the charm of the hotel.

The hotel was full of older couples but this why we chose it, if its peace and quiet you want then this is the place for you. However don't be fooled as everyone knows how to have a knees up on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday night up to midnight as the hotel entertainment kicks off, it's a good laugh and very enjoyable with all the singing etc.

The swimming pool is no Olympic sized monster but it is clean and fully covered in the cooler months (it was still covered in April) and heated (just) while we were there I think only me and my wife used it so we loved it.

The hotel is situated around 200 meters from the beach and is within seconds of the local shops so nothing is far away.

The Casablanca Inn is a central hotel, very clean and tastefully decorated. The staff could be a bit more friendly....sorry!! I didnt rate the food(evening menu-not breakfast which was great value) but I loved the cats!!!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front part of the hotel towards the middle have a sea view. Otherwise the view is drab...

Stayed here last June after booking a last minute holiday & much impressed. Monte Gordo is a quiet fishing village with tourism bolted on as an after-thought & the hotel is situated a few minutes walk from the beach & restaurants, cafes, etc. If you need banging, noisy clubs full of kn*b-heads, this is not the place to visit: they are conspicuously absent!. We are returning for two weeks this June, which is a first for us: never been back to anywhere for a second visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the square.

This hotel was perfect for our needs; it was well situated (one or two streets back from the sea front ), very clean, breakfast more than sufficient, and staff helpful. We were there in early April and the pool was heated, most unexpected.
We were half board and although the food was fine it catered to the tastes of a mixture of holiday makers rather than being typically Portuguese. But no complaints.
We took advantage of bike hire which was close by to the hotel and also hired a car from the same place. Both very reasonable.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel should have a sunny balcony.
