The Lowdown

Portugal’s Algarve has it all – endless sun, clear warm seas and some of Europe’s most beautiful beaches. Enjoy all of this in a true home-away-from-home setting at Monte Santo Resort, near the quaint fishing village of Carvoeiro. More than justifying its five stars, the resort comprises a collection of high-spec low-rise apartments and townhouses. Spread across immaculately landscaped grounds, you’ll find a huge lagoon-like swimming pool, waterways and tropical palm-filled gardens.
Monte Santo Resort is a TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Winner and it’s easy to see why. It boasts state-of the art facilities, with five other pools (including one indoors), a tennis court, gym and outdoor fitness equipment. Elsewhere the aptly named Alma Spa will soothe both mind, body and soul, with expert therapists offering a tempting array of treatments.
While your accommodation includes well thought-out self-catering facilities, if you don’t fancy cooking there’s a poolside restaurant on hand serving top-notch locally sourced fare. Add to this various activities laid on daily and many guests never feel the need to leave this peaceful haven for their whole stay. An equally pleasurable time, however, can be had by taking advantage of the complimentary transfer down to Carvoeiro beach, or to one of the many excellent golf courses in the vicinity, which are some of the most challenging in Portugal.

Amazing Weekend Away
Reviewed 18 hours ago

We stayed in a 3 bedroom townhouse which had all of the amenities you would expect of a 5 star hotel

The lunchtime menu and bar is exceptional although we were a little disappointed with the evening menu but we went into the local village and had several nice meals

The resort is beautifully maintained and the staff cannot do enough for you

Thank you Monte Santo for a great weekend we are booking again for next year

Will go back!

Great resort for families and couples, you have all you need in the suites, very spacious and comfortable.
Great restaurant, good food and staff are very attentive.
The indoor pool is an excellent addition for those days when weather is not great.
The outdoor pool is stunning!
Carvoeiro has also a lot to explore.
We would go back in a heartbeat!

This was our third visit to Monte Santo although we haven't been for 5 years. The apartments are very spacious, the kitchen has everything you need, including a washer/dryer and a dishwasher (which I can't live without, even on holiday)! As the weather was fairly rubbish we spent a fair amount of time in the apartment so it was great that there were several English TV channels. Free Wi-Fi too! The indoor pool was also great to have because of the weather. The apartments were very clean, as was the whole resort. Very friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely be back!

What a resort!

stormy weather
Reviewed 3 months ago

had a great start to the holiday weather was great for 4 days but then the storm I must say our apartment had all you needed for 6 days of really bad weather home from home even tv with 1to 4 English channels. clean well kept only fault for me was it was on a very steep hillside and a lot of steps I would say car hire would be a good idea as there is not much to do in resort apart from beach and bars.
