Amazing
It was great! Superb facilities and staff. Will be back there soon. A very minor thing missing was some tea and coffee in the room which I think should be standard in a 5 star establishment.

Good site for a family stay
We recently stayed at Monte Santo for 10 days during September. The apartment was nicely decorated, spacious and well equipped. Which was perfect for us as we were travelling with two hound children. The Monte Santo grounds and beautiful and the pool is a great spacious area to relax. Service from the bar and restaurant were reasonable. The bar was very expensive, Staff were friendly but service was slow despite there being a limited number of guests during our stay. The food in the restaurant was okay, Not mind blowing and the experience didn’t reflect the price. There are many better restaurants within a 20 minute walk of Monte Santo in Carvoeiro.

Excellent family holiday at exceptional resort.
This resort is beautiful whether for a family or just a couple. Our family of 6 adults and 4 children had 3 x 2 bedroom luxury townhouses and they had everything in them for a relaxing holiday. There was loads of cupboard space and the cleaners came in every day and replaced all the towels and even left a dishwasher tablet. The grounds are immaculate and we all made use of the indoor pool but only the children were brave enough to venture into the outdoor pools which were very cold in February. The resort is ideally placed for visiting all the local beaches and there are many good restaurants. We will certainly hope to return.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The suite was nice, had a washroom and a bathroom so it helped getting ready in the mornings. The porch door would not lock and even after multiple discussions with the front desk, nothing was done about it. Even if the chance of thievery is low, it's a matter of safety and unfortunately, we were disappointed. Nevertheless, the resort was a nice place overall, good breakfast.
