“Worst Hotel I ever stayed in.”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

The hotel was so bad we chose to officially complain to the manager, but he was never available so only spoke to one of his employees.

The hotel is run down and dirty.

Huge queues in the dining room for food that is poor and served with no care.

Waiters throw uneaten food in the middle of the table to clear up - even when you have not finished you meal!!!

Pool had green scum around the sides.

Hotel well located, but with some flaws of age ... a piece (10cm) fell from the balcony near me.
In the use of a lift, he stopped in the middle ... more reports from other guests. The stop was resolved fast and it seems that is "normal" ... do not have certificates of inspections in order.
The rooms have the usual size, but the triples are two beds and a couch. The bathroom it's old and the water takes some time to drain the bath, and when it happens during a shower is not good.
In general one can say that it is a clean.
In common halls have 3 TVs ... which is positive.
In the restaurant, breakfast is good, but still did not understand the logic of boiled eggs with fried bacon. At meals the food could be better prepared, the dessert is slightly varied and the fruits kiwi and bananas must be green just to show, not to eat. Many dishes and cups poorly washed. Take a long time to reset some food options and is difficult to get table at certain times.
The parking of the hotel is small and is difficult to get a place near him.
Spend a few days at the hotel, since they do not go waiting to spend a dream holiday.

Hi
We stayed here for 2 weeks and it is a great hotel for location. You even have a main bus terminal at the side of the hotel. You are right in the middle of the town with lots to do both day and night.The rooms are airy and cleaned every day. The staff are mostly helpful. The pool next to the lounge garden is very clean, and the gardens are nice to lounge in with a book.The food in the evening is lovely and varied, however the hot breakfast is tinned sausages with either boiled or scrambled egg, with bacon on a friday and a sunday only!
PLEASE find the seagulls bar, a tiny bar of the main strip, well worth going, the owners are so so friendly and prices are the best along with the service
There are very few English there but that did not bother us

We were booked in at another hotel and got changed to this 1.We were really pleased.Food exellent,service exellent everything great.Brilliant value for money.Hotel itself a bit tired but then again it would be a lot more to stay here.Really enjoyed it

Room Tip: Probably to have a room away from lifts,but they certainly weren't a problem to us.

Stayed here for two nights in May . Hotel is dated but found the rooms to be of good size and clean . Breakfast was adequate , fruit & yoghurt , eggs ,bacon , cheese & hams & a good selection of breads . Found the staff to be friendly . Would recommend it if on a budget . Not a lot to do in Monte Gordo and found Tavira to be a more interesting destination .

We booked this as a cheap late deal and I had quite low expectations after reading other peoples reviews and I was pleasantly surprised Yes the rooms are dated , Yes it does need a refurb . But the rooms are clean and maid service every day, The staff are friendly and willing to help you in anyway that they can, Every time that we asked for something to be done in the room such as sweeping the balcony, more loo roll that sort of thing it was attended to straight away. The breakfast was normal fayre for continental breakfast cheese, ham, rolls boiled eggs ceareal etc and apart from one day when we got up late there was always plenty. The indoor pool was ok it was clean and cooled us down when it got too hot to sit in the sunbathing area, There were not many English speaking people staying at the hotel it was mainly Portugese and Dutch . The hotel is in a good location just around the corner from shops and bars and the beach was lovely but very crowded best time to go there is between 1-4 in the afternoon less crowded. All in all we had a great holiday and would probably go back again and we got what we paid for.

Where to start!!!..bad points...no entertainment,no outdoor pool,terrible decor,lukewarm food,no airconditioning(except in rooms,) then you have to leave a deposit for remote for air con and tv.The rooms were like something from the 70s,hotel needs a total revamp and to be child friendly and offer more facilites.
good points....clean towels and sheets daily,nice staff,food was either meat or fish,chips or potatoes,salads,soup,all tasty but not hot,there was no meals for children like burgers,pizza etc if they didnt eat adult food there was nothing.not for people with walking difficulties as there are 2 flights of stairs to the basement restaraunt.If you are 60 plus and just want a quiet hotel with no entertainment and enjoy german and spanish tv this is for you.very few english mostly german,spanish and danish,nice quiet break but wouldnt go again.its says there is a jaccuzi but the health club was closed.
