Monte do Alamo is a beautiful house in a lovely setting. The house is stylish and and allows for a relaxing break just outside of Tavira. We visited during the springtime and the wild flowers in the surrounding area were beautiful. The owners make for great hosts and can provide delicious home cooked meals where required.

After reading such great reviews, Monte do Alamo failed to live up to my expectations. Actually, it was our worst experience in Portugal. Breakfast was poor, although fresh, and we found it a bit annoying having to decide what we wanted for our daily breakfast when checking in. The owners are really nice people, but we felt uncomfortable when they decided to join us for dinner and didn't leave our table. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed talking to them, but my husband and I wanted some alone time and we felt trapped in the situation. Room was average size and decoration was bland. Not good value for money.

We booked for 3 nights beginning of October 2010 and booked an extra night because we loved it so much. We stayed in the suite, a beautiful, spacious room with a big bathroom and a gorgeous big private terrace with view on the distant sea. The house and the owners are very welcoming and make you feel at home right away. Delicious breakfasts outside in the garden with view on the sea, excellent home cooked dinners, warm and personal advice from the very friendly owners help you to make your stay in Tavira unforgettable. The city is beautiful and quiet and can be reached by foot, but is advisable by car or by taxi. I will not hesitate to come back here.

I really liked our stay in Monte Álamo. You will probabily need a car to get there but it pays off: very peaceful and quiet, and near Tavira at the same time. The view is great. Everything was great: the room, the staff, the breakfast. It was a good surprise. I would come back anytime.
