Yellow Praia Monte Gordo
Ranked #10 of 14 Hotels in Monte Gordo
Reviewed October 14, 2012

I spent a week here working out, enjoying the beach and the beautiful surroundings, and for these purposes the hotel works great. The facilities for working out indoors and outdoors (fantastic beach and running trails in the woods!) are really good. But. I would not have chosen this hotel for a "normal" vacation, because the rooms are so dated and have certainly seen better days. The food in the restaurant is just not good either... But you can find restaurants on the beach and get some great seafood for a bargain. You also have to pay for the safe (10 euros and 20 euros as a deposit....) and wifi you can only get in the reception and of course you have to pay for this. The beds are just weird too.

Been coming to Monte Gordo since I was 6 and I'm now 22 it's like home from home we have loads of friends here and sometimes we come twice a year. Been to Tenerife this year but Monte Gordo is defiantly for chilling out I feel extra safe here and I don't have to look over my shoulder you can leave belongings and money out in rooms and they never get touched but in Tenerife everything had to go in to the safe.

Stayed in every hotel in Monte Gordo but this has got to be the best! me and my mum stayed here for a week half board and it was fantastic the staff on the reception and the cleaners and maintenance men and the waiters can't do enough for you they are really friendly and always say hello with a smile on their face :) we checked in quick and someone took our cases to our room and they got there before us! the room was massive it had a sofa that had a pull out bed underneath, 2 comfy single beds and table and 2 chairs and a big dressing table and flat screen TV, loads of wardrobe space I opened one wardrobe well I thought it was a wardrobe and they was a sink and 2 hobs and a microwave and pots and pans! the bathroom was huge with a shower and bath etc, and the balcony was even bigger with a lovely view of the sea and a table and 2 chairs, the room got cleaned everyday to a very high standard and towels always changed, could leave money and belongings out and the cleaners never moved or touched them only to clean (you can do this in every hotel we have stayed in, in Monte Gordo)

All areas of the hotel are spotlessly clean and all staff work extra hard the food in the restaurant was always piping hot and they were loads to choose from on a morning and evening and the head chef was always checking the food was at the right temperature (had a bad experience with our last holiday to Tenerife with food being lukewarm) one evening a cleaner said they was ONE cockroach not as big as the ones in Tenerife and the head chef closed the area off and got the cleaner to move all the table and chairs and clean the whole area that was closed off, he also took all the cutlery off the tables to rewash them and got the cleaner to clean the chairs and tables down and he replaced all the food that was out with fresh food brilliant watching everything they did for one tiny cockroach.

I would defiantly recommend this hotel to people who are wanting to go to Monteo Gordo its lovely and you wont be disappointed :)

Room Tip: All rooms are really nice and face the sea but the higher up the better views

We went to Yellow Montegordo during our holidays in Portugal. The hotel was crowded and it seemed the same kind of mass tourism hotel you can find everywhere. The room was spacious but we had twin beds( which was really upsetting) and breakfast was really appalling; bad quality food and not much of a choice, surprised with the bacon & eggs (horrible) and the croissants out of the freezer. Well, considering the amount of people, I suppose you wouldn't expect anything different. Again the price was too expensive for what you get. The beach oposite the hotel was over crowded too....Better go to Altura or Vila Real de Santo Antonio ( not far from MonteGordo) if you want to have a decent rest and enjoy the Algarve. One positive thing about this stay was the really really nice beach restaurant you can find on the beach ( don't remeber the name but food was EXCELLENT!!!)

The hotel probably is more of a three star than four, but really can't complain. Nice pool, spacious rooms and nice lounge area. Restaurants also nice at an extra cost. Slightly cheesy entertainment, but that's standard at any hotel abroad right?! Literally a two minute walk to the beach and local cafea and bars. Would go again.

Room Tip: Ideally don't get the top floor as its near a pool that plays quite loud music. Also ask for a r...

Me and my family of four went to stay at the yellow hotel in Monte Gordo the rooms were very spacious which we had wanted .The hole room was prefect the veiw was amazing and so were the beds. The beds were very comfortable and perfect . There were a few issues and the first issue was that the maid severice was not cleaning our room properly sometimes the towles they had gave us were eithier dirty or they had given us maybe 2 short of towels and the worst thing was that they don't change your bed sheets for 3 days it was a hotel policy which is rather silliy because what are we suppose to do if it is dirty .Our last issuse was that if you go for all inclusive or half bord or bed and breakfast they would give you the same food every day which is really boring .
On the good side we had bed and breakfast usally the best place near the hotel were the restruats ,the beach and this british pub called MOBY'S BAR they were a real pleasent to talk to they are in the street before this palce clled Pirme they have a board saying Moby's bar if you miss home these people speak ennglish and know which places are god and which places are not that good .

I was a bit disappointed with this 4 stars hotel, because I don't thing it deserves the rating... Yes, as some amenities that only 4 stars has it, but the room and the breakfast was disappointing! The great thing was the view to the beach but when you look from the beach to the hotel it kind of think that it's a little to big.
This was not our first choice hotel, we were moved in from another hotel, so we cannot brag about it...

The rooms are very big and clean. Comparing size of the hotel, the swimming pool is not big but we always found place around there and had enough space for bath.
The stuff is very friendly.
The beach in Monte Gordo is one of the biggest I've seen, wide maybe 200 m with sand cleaned every evening by special traction-engine.

Room Tip: Ocean is visible from higher floors.
