Surrounded by thousands of acres of rolling hills, pine woodlands and wetlands, in the heart of the Algarve’s famous Quinta do Lago golf and residential estate, Monte Da Quinta Resort makes the most of its natural surroundings. With three of Europe’s best golf courses, a natural park and nearly two miles of sandy beach on its doorstep, this resort is perfectly positioned for a blissful getaway.
The design is clean, sleek and unfussy, with lots of glass and natural light, while bamboo and green foliage give a sense of the outdoors throughout. Suites are contemporary without being bland – think plenty of white, with subtle graphic prints and earthy shades of mushroom, terracotta and sage. There’s an elegant restaurant, a large landscaped pool, a fully equipped spa and gym, plus activities and excursions for the intrepid; unwind with some tennis, horseback riding and bird-watching.
Last but not least, don’t forget the golf. Quinta Do Lago South has hosted the Portuguese Open many times, and at the 1st World Golf Awards in 2014 its North Course was awarded Europe’s Best New Golf Course and its South Course named Portugal’s Best Course.
Suites are creatively designed using natural products and artistic touches, and their double doors usher in loads of sunlight and sea salty air. All suites have spacious living areas with a dining table and a fully equipped kitchenette.
The smart-casual Quinta Restaurant offers an international menu and lays on numerous themed evenings showcasing its gastronomic flair. There’s an extensive breakfast buffet, with eggs cooked to order, a plethora of fresh baked goods, cheese, cold meats and a snack bar for light or filling choices throughout the day.
The aptly named Magnolia Spa offers a range of rejuvenating treatments in a calm atmosphere. Pick between Comfort Zone face and body treatments, holistic spa experiences, chromotherapy and more. There’s also a steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi, a number of special showers, a heated indoor swimming pool, two treatment rooms and a Technogym.
Monte Da Quinta is a 20-minute walk to the fabulous beach, or you could get really back to nature and take a catamaran through Ria Formosa Park, with its pine trees, marshes and salt pans. Faro, the Algarve’s capital, is packed full of history, shops, restaurants and entertainment and is only about half an hour away. Other places of note are the quaint fishing port of Olhao, with its white-cubed houses, and the 2,000-year-old ports of Tavira and Albufeira.
How to Get There
Spacious, clean hotel, impressive lobby and corridors, good clean rooms with a kitchenette, nice breakfast, really good spread, great location for golfers playing Quinta North or South, San Lorenzo etc
Know Quinta do Lago quite well and decided to stay in Monte Da Quinta as I had never stayed here.
We arrived early so our room was ready which was nice. What shocked me was that they required a €100 deposit per night staying.... completely unexpected and should have been disclosed before arrival!
Room was nice however after settling in for the night I noticed a large stain on the sheet... which would have been unmissable for housekeeping and was frankly disgusting. I rang reception and cleaning was sent up and the cleaner did apologise... reception didn’t and the cleaner said I was lucky I called before 11 as she was leaving in 5 minutes....
For what was paid, this was unacceptable. Along with this, both of our toilet seats made a very laboured creaking noise when pressure was applied. Walls and celiling are paper thin.... could here the night activities of the room next door as well as the room above us getting up in the morning. Not ideal when hoping for a relaxing break.
Fixture in steam room is hanging down... nobody was at spa reception to let them know.
Breakfast was fantastic however I think I’ll be trying the Magnolia next time.
After spending many years in Vale do Lobo we thought we would give Quinta do Lago a try,and after reviewing many opportunities we settled on the Monte da Quinta Suites and we’re so glad we did.
A friendly welcome from reception and an early check in gets the holiday off to a good start. The suites are comfortable and well equipped and plenty of room.
The breakfast offering is outstanding with plenty to choose from. Also had dinner in the hotel which was exceptional and rivalled many of the top restaurants in the area.
We had such a great time we’ve been back already with another trip planned for June.
I never really do review on hotels but feel I want to review this time . We had an amazing time in Monte da Quinta suites . From the first point of contact with hotel to get prices and availability. I dealt with Rui and he was first class . From the minute we arrived at check in to the end of our holiday .. great for families ,the staff were so friendly , great food , top class service and the cleaners in everyday and they were lovely and works so hard .... So a big 5 stars to monte da Quinta and their amazing staff . We will be back again this year . Kids can’t wait 😊 xx
I arrived to early for my room to be ready but the staff were very helpful, allowing me to use the gym and have a shower afterwards whilst waiting for my room. Its clean, its efficient and the staff were really good in every department.
The rooms are large and have all of the amenities that most people would need. The only thing they could improve is more light in the rooms but hey, I didn't spend too much time in my room. The bar worked and breakfast was really good, particularly if you are going off to play golf for the day.
I would definitely return.
