“holiday at the yellow hotel in Monte Gordo”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

Me and my family of four went to stay at the yellow hotel in Monte Gordo the rooms were very spacious which we had wanted .The hole room was prefect the veiw was amazing and so were the beds. The beds were very comfortable and perfect . There were a few issues and the first issue was that the maid severice was not cleaning our room properly sometimes the towles they had gave us were eithier dirty or they had given us maybe 2 short of towels and the worst thing was that they don't change your bed sheets for 3 days it was a hotel policy which is rather silliy because what are we suppose to do if it is dirty .Our last issuse was that if you go for all inclusive or half bord or bed and breakfast they would give you the same food every day which is really boring .
On the good side we had bed and breakfast usally the best place near the hotel were the restruats ,the beach and this british pub called MOBY'S BAR they were a real pleasent to talk to they are in the street before this palce clled Pirme they have a board saying Moby's bar if you miss home these people speak ennglish and know which places are god and which places are not that good .

I was a bit disappointed with this 4 stars hotel, because I don't thing it deserves the rating... Yes, as some amenities that only 4 stars has it, but the room and the breakfast was disappointing! The great thing was the view to the beach but when you look from the beach to the hotel it kind of think that it's a little to big.
This was not our first choice hotel, we were moved in from another hotel, so we cannot brag about it...

The rooms are very big and clean. Comparing size of the hotel, the swimming pool is not big but we always found place around there and had enough space for bath.
The stuff is very friendly.
The beach in Monte Gordo is one of the biggest I've seen, wide maybe 200 m with sand cleaned every evening by special traction-engine.

Room Tip: Ocean is visible from higher floors.

I stayed there for 5 days in October 2011. Its a nice Hotel but i think they should improve breakfast (specially the bread they offer).

Having to pay a lot for wifi that is slow is not where any hotel guest should accept. The location of the hotel was great, the large rooms. Wonderful balcony but nowhere to hang wet towels and clothes. The furniture had to be used instead making it awkward to use the balcony as the chair and table was occupied with my clothes. The food is bland, very little fresh vegetables but lots of cakes.

We have stopped here three times in the last two years for short breaks when in the Algarve as a value for money /portuguese type premier inn .It is very large looking YELLOW building with around 350 suites ,built around ten years ago for previous owners & would sugguest very little spent since needs some up grading in both public & bedroom suites
However it does have plus points == Very near the beach == Large bedrooms with fridges ,basic furniture == spacious balcony with very simple resin furniture
Large self service restaurant in the basement (no views ) Food whether breakfast or evening plentiful but basic with beer & soft drinks .We always go for the B/ B option lots of good local restaurants & bars walking distance
A very large heated indoor pool for a hotel (Need bathing caps ) ==Plenty off street car parking nearby (Hotel car parking expensive & small )
We often go to Vila Real nearby town for shopping & Spain is only 20 minutes by car sugguest Aymonte & Sevile for lots of different type of shopping Monte Gordo is with a small holiday town with all the usual holiday type shops == recommend the Casino for the show & drink included for a very low price (Casino is owned /operated by the Government clean /tidy well organised ) If you wish to gamble take your passport for some paper work to be filled in (The Gambling tables are in the basement never very busy )
Overall a small friendly town with a clean long beach ideal for families but has very little exciting night light for older holiday makers

Room Tip: This is a Suite Hotel so all rooms from our experience are very large if a little dated

This was a last minute holiday for me and my wife. We found the location very peaceful and relaxing, just what we were looking for on our 6 night stay. The beach was only a few minutes walk away from the hotel and was very clean, flat and safe. The locals frequented the beach late afternoon with their families which gave it a friendly atmosphere. You could walk in either direction on the beach for a very long walk and find space to sunbathe and relax.
The staff in the bars/restaurants on the resort were very pleasant and helpful and there were plenty of cafe/bars available to sit in with a drink may it be coffee or a alcoholic one and people watch.
The resort was very flat but the pavements a little cobbly/tiled in most areas so comfortable shoes would be advisable for the ladies.
There were plenty of gift shops, perfume shops and supermarkets stocked all the every day items if you were thinking of going self-catering and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from also. We would deffinitely go there again for a relaxing break as there was everything available at hand without using to much effort.

The hotel was very clean and spacious but would benefit from some updating. The food was of good quality but not very adventurous. The plus point of the half board facility was that with your evening meal driniks such as soft fizzy drinks, water and beer were available for self service.
Sitting in the outside veranda area makes for a cooler less busy mealtime.
Staff were very efficient but not very talkative and just left you alone. Hotel was not used by many British people more German/European with didnt bother us.

Would not reccomend if you want your Majorca/Benidorm nightlife
Would reccomend if you want a little quiet break

Room Tip: Room 815 Sunny on morning, cooler/shaded on afternoon
