“Avoid!!!!!”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

Having visited once before 5 years ago I knew before our arrival that this is no 4 star establishment, but I don't believe anything has been touched since we were last here! The rooms are tired & worn, the bathrooms dirty, & there is a total ignorance from ALL the staff! We had an 11th floor room which had 1 wardrobe locked.... Why?? Beds(2 singles pushed together are rock hard a and have plastic protecting covers( looking at the average age of their clientele I am not surprised!) I believe they should consider changing the name from Yellow to Orange as 99% of the 75+ old clients are Dutch!
Enjoy the resort as it ha a number of good restaurants and a fantastic huge beach, but stay elsewhere!

Stayed February 2014

A handsome hotel with large and pleasant foyer.Really nice bedroom with very good bathroom but the beds are extremely hard and might not suit many visitors. Our room had a good view of the sea.
The dining room is in the basement and thus a little gloomy. Dinner was not really exciting - soup followed by a choice of spaghetti and bacon/goulash/fish. It might have been better if it had be more than lukewarm - however, there are many excellent restaurants in Monte gordo and nearby Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Breakfast was varied, plentiful and good but the queues to get coffee were long.

The beds are very stiff and should be complemented with softer mattress pads.
Due to concrete walls and roof and stone floor there is a terrible noise in the restaurants and bar. Would be easy and cheap to fix with sound absorbing material in the roof, but hotel staff seems not to be interested. Stayed there one week and tried in vain to get the hotel staff to at least correct the clock in the lobby.

Internet is expensive (should be free) as well as lock to the room safe.

If the staff listened to their customers they could easily improve to 4 or even 5 stars. Restaurants are good and service in the restaurants excellent.

This is not a 4 star hotel. There are no facilities to prepare a tea or coffee in the room. There was no information in the room or at reception to tell guests what was going on or places to see in and around Monte Gordo.. In fact there weren't any details about the hotel itself.

Breakfast was adequate but overall uninspiring.

The rooms are a good size but are tired and need updating. The bed linen was too small for the mattress which was OK if you don't move around at night, if you do you will end up with a ball of sheet. Make sure if you ask for an ocean view room, as we did, you get one on an upper floor. We were on the 3rd floor and while you could see the ocean you also got a view of a large flat roof with a ventilation duct belonging to the rooms overlooking the pool. We asked to be moved if possible and were put on a list, obviously others had the same issue. We never heard anything back from reception.

Overall the hotel is in a great location for the beach, we never had a problem parking, but left you under underwhelmed.

A great hotel with a wounder full view. Great staff who look after the customers. A very good selection of food for evening dinner. It is just a short walk to town or to the beach. A comfortable and relaxing bar for a sociable drink from very help full staff. Wifi would be help full at the hotel in the rooms. It is a very help full staff from being well come at the front desk, and all areas of the hotel. The room staff. the dinning room staff ect.

Room Tip: All rooms are large but air conditions is a must as some months the weather can be hot.

My wife and I stayed here for 11 nights half board from 27 August, the hotel was very busy with mostly Portuguese family's which made a pleasant change.
The dining room was always busy but if you went early or late finding a table wasn't a problem and the the waiting staff were always very helpful. The food was also very good always something tasty.
Montegordo is very flat and as I have a mobility problem I asked at reception where could I rent a wheelchair I was astonished when the fellow at reception went into the baggage room and gave me a wheelchair for the duration of my holiday for free, I also rented a mobility scooter for a week which gave us even more scope for exploring Montegordo. We had a terrific sea view from our large room on the 8th floor we could also see Ayamonte in Spain and the bridge spanning the Guadiana river.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor with sea view
