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.

Beautiful Resort

My Mom, sister and I stayed in this beautiful resort for a week and we throughly enjoyed our stay. We booked a Two Bedroom Suite - it was very spacious, clean and had everything we needed. There are plenty of sun beds around the pool area and nice having the option of the indoor heated pool or outdoor pool. The reception and restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly. We had breakfast and dinner once in the hotel and both meals were excellent. We used Uber quite a bit as the resort is a bit away from the town of Carvoeiro but it was cheap - no more than €6 one way. I would recommend the Monte Santo Resort, especially for a relaxing holiday.

Great Resort

We stayed here for 10 nights with a large party of friends and family as we were getting married in the area.
The hotel is absolutely fantastic and the rooms are all exceptional. We were lucky to get upgraded to a clubhouse suite however there really is no bad rooms in this hotel. They are all huge with full kitchens including utensils, pots pans and even a washing machine.
We also had a Post Wedding Day BBQ for all our family and friends at the resort. Paula and Ana were so helpful in arranging this for us and could not do enough for us.
They arranged for an area in the terrace to be separated off for all our family and friends the food was absolutely delicious with everyone commented on how lovely it was.
The hotel shuttle service down to Carvoiero is really handy as it is a 15 minute walk into the centre and an uphill 20 minute walk back. Jose who took us was lovely and full of useful information.
The hotel was exceptionally clean and all the staff were so friendly and couldn't do more for us.
Monte Santo have set the bar high and we cannot wait to return.
