“Not as bad as these reviews make out”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

We didn't read any reviews of this hotel, we just rocked up here because it was where we had to drop off our rental car. After getting horribly lost several times we left the car and decided to stay for the night before pressing on to Spain. We didn't think much of Monte Gordo as a place to visit after having spent time in Central Portugal, but that's another issue.

We went into a couple of hotels to get prices and the Navegadores was the best value. Yes, the hotel is very tired and a bit run down but the room was perfectly adequate, the hotel is well sited and we thought it was good value for money.

Breakfast was one of the worst in our trip, everything was stale and dry and not very nice, but overall the hotel was fine and we were happy with our choice.

After reading many negative comments on this hotel, I kept an open mind when arriving. Reception staff were extremely helpful and even took us up to our room. The room was cleaned daily, had the usual amenities and the view of the mountains was spectacular. The restaurant was normal fare: breakfast- ham , cheese, eggs, frankfurters, cereals, freshly baked bread, toast, jams, tomatoes and juice, tea and coffee. nothing wrong with that! Dinner was a choice of soup, meat and fish, salads, vegetables, pasta, chips, desserts, fresh fruit and bread. Drinks were not overpriced in the restaurant. The staff were helpful but spoke very little English, but this made us learn some Portuguese. The hotel was mainly full of Portuguese holidaymakers and most enjoyable to watch them enjoy their holidays. This is not for people who want bacon and eggs and burgers or pizza. It was a refreshing holiday and i would go back again anytime.........

If u read this and have a few sense listen to me: Monte Gordo is the ugliest town in all Algarve packed with gazillion families. It's not a town, it's a resort with 10floor ugly-old hotels. The local beach is super-super packed. Navigadores is a well torn super mediocre hotel and definitely shouldn't cost more than 60euros/night. The breakfast is barely edible, everything is a joke. The moment u walk in u feel like holding your breath... U should go to Tavira and never book a hotel in Monto Gordo and certainly not Navigadores!

not a very good hotel,the food was luke warm with very little choice.
it was supposed to be self service but the cooks put the meat on your plate.
there was no entertainment, the bar prices were pretty steep.
but having said that for what we paid £416 each for two weeks half board you can't complain.
i would recomend this hotel if you're on a budget and don't mind eating luke warm food

This Hotel was well placed in the town, it is tired and dull looking and could do with a re vamp but we found it clean with plenty of hot water. There was a general lack of info available , pool opening times etc. We wanted access to UK news as the Ash problems continued but none of the TVs catered for British viewers.The pool was chilly - heated ? and not enough made of the health suite that is available inc in the price.
We had half board and although the food wasnt top quality, we didnt starve and for the money we paid we ate well . There were alot of complaints but we thought on the whole it was ok .
The rooms were basic but clean and the sea view isnt any longer possible as buildings have appeared along the front blocking the view.
All in all , we got we expected on a bargain break price and had a pleasant stay in Monte Gordo.
