Just returned from our week away at the Vasco da Gama in Monte Gordo. Hotel is very good value for money overall! Upon arrival we did have to wait to check-in but went for a lovely walk on the beach which is literally 2 seconds away! When given our room, it was very clean, spacious, 2 huge single beds put together to make one massive bed for us! Free wifi and flat screen TV are great for when you're chilling in the hotel but the pool area and beach are much too inviting to not be outside in the Portugal sun!
Air con wasn't great but balcony doors and windows offer ventilation in the evenings. Bathrooms were very tidy and great size and towels and bedding changed daily.
As a young couple at the end of the holiday season we were easily outnumbered by older hotel guests but there were a few other young groups or families and to be honest the quiet was much appreciated around the pool area and the ease of getting drinks in the evening and for Happy Hour was great!
As for food, the half board option is great. Plenty of choice for breakfast with free drinks and dinner is mix and match some days better than others for meat and fish options but always something to eat! Drinks are not included for the evening meal as it is table service but this didn't add much to our spending money so no complaints!
The resort of Monte Gordo is very quiet but there are enough restaurants to keep all tastes amused and the day trips offered by both the hotel and local companies are great days out. We went to a market town one day and a longer day trip to Gibraltar another, which I would highly recommend!
All in all a lovely relaxing week away in the Algarve, would definitely return.
