Is Monte Gordo suitable for disabled peole

We are thinking of going to Monte Gordo in May, staying at the Vasco Da Gama. My partner is disabled, not in a wheelchair, but using a walking stick, and he cannot climb up steps or slopes. Would Monte Gordo be suitable for him? It looks fairly flat from the photos I've seen.

I agree with the previous comment it is very flat. You say you are thinking about the Vasco Da Gama. If you are going half board a lot of people say the food choices are very repetitive. Much better to go self catering as there are so many lovely restaurants in town. But it's your choice. Enjoy.

Cigarettes are the same price at the airport and in resort. Alcohol is cheaper to buy in the resort unless the airport is running a special offer.

Monte Gordo despite the translation of the name is very flat but do not think Vasco Da Gama Hotel a good idea if you are disabled. Also you cannot hire wheel chairs in Monte Gordo, This hotel is right at the end of the town so you have a walk to get into the centre, self catering would have been a better choice
