Booked a seaview room and was well worth it for the view. The hotel is on the edge of a fab large beach with easy access. The pool area is a good size with new and comfortable sunbeds. Nice garden areas too. The reception is a bit dark and dingy but its quaint. Pool snack bar was a bit expensive.... More

This is the third time we have been to the Vasco da Gama and we decided to book a seaview room on this visit. It was so worth it - being on the fifth foor, the views were fabulous, the room was comfortable and it had a great balcony space.

I stayed here for five days at the end of September/beginning of October and the weather was amazing - at least 30 degrees everyday with no clouds, which is why we picked to stay in this area of Portugal. Monte Gordo is quite a small and quiet town - I expect it was probably more buzzing in the summer season,... More

We had a week, breakfast only. Breakfast ok, plenty of choice, best coffee ever and from a machine! Down side, paid extra for a balcony with sea view, total waste of money - 1st floor, so view of flat roofs, apartments and a bit of the gardens. Balcony tiny and bleak so my idea of sitting out there soon went.... More

I so wish I had read a review from September 2013 by BradfordSungirl before I booked and went to the Vasco da Gama. I read plenty of reviews before booking but didn't go back 3 years. Have only just read it now. I can't believe that more people don't comment on the lack of lifts to the pool/beach/restaurant level, especially... More

Location - Right in the centre of the town, there are a couple of bars and restaurants within 2 minutes walk from the hotel, with the others around 5-10 minutes walk away. All offering fish, meats, sangria etc. This hotel is also right on the beach, although you have to pay €10 for sunbeds. Don't understand the review that said... More
