Yellow Praia Monte Gordo
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Monte Gordo
Reviewed 29 August 2012

We went to Yellow Montegordo during our holidays in Portugal. The hotel was crowded and it seemed the same kind of mass tourism hotel you can find everywhere. The room was spacious but we had twin beds( which was really upsetting) and breakfast was really appalling; bad quality food and not much of a choice, surprised with the bacon & eggs (horrible) and the croissants out of the freezer. Well, considering the amount of people, I suppose you wouldn't expect anything different. Again the price was too expensive for what you get. The beach oposite the hotel was over crowded too....Better go to Altura or Vila Real de Santo Antonio ( not far from MonteGordo) if you want to have a decent rest and enjoy the Algarve. One positive thing about this stay was the really really nice beach restaurant you can find on the beach ( don't remeber the name but food was EXCELLENT!!!)

The hotel probably is more of a three star than four, but really can't complain. Nice pool, spacious rooms and nice lounge area. Restaurants also nice at an extra cost. Slightly cheesy entertainment, but that's standard at any hotel abroad right?! Literally a two minute walk to the beach and local cafea and bars. Would go again.

Room Tip: Ideally don't get the top floor as its near a pool that plays quite loud music. Also ask for a r...

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.

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.
