“Beautiful and calming”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Went here in September 2013 and it was a very relaxing break. You will need a car to get anywhere but you can while away a good few days here relaxing by the pool, or playing tennis or golf.

Rooms a clean and bright and all secluded for privacy.

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

This hotel is an oasis of tranquility in a lovely region.
The staff is helpful and service-minded beyond our expectations (especially Tiago).

I loved our spacious suite with balcony. Plenty of room to get comfortable. The breakfast was not entirely up to the same level of luxury as the rest of the hotel. It was of average quality. I would have loved to have more choice of fruits. The wasps were annoying outside on the balcony of the restaurant. (I think that depends on the season).

The pools, the bar, the surroundings are lovely! I found the entire experience at the hotel very relaxing.

We booked this as a last minute break without a lot of knowledge of the area. The hotel itself was lovely, upon arrival we were immediately offered an upgrade to a suite as it was off season. Large room, fantastically comfortable bed and a balcony area, the usual home comforts of bathrobes, slippers and toiletries etc. A bit disappointed that the tv was not a flat screen and no I pod docking station, also the wifi does not reach the rooms only to the pool bar area. This would have been more bearable had the pool bar been open for any length of time. When we arrived (Sunday pm) we were told that the pool bar would not be open past 7pm on Monday or Tuesday, however when we went to eat there on Wednesday we were then advised it would no longer be open after 7any night as was close to the end of season. The hotel is very remote so we found ourselves eating out a lot and using expensive taxi services over the week. The Orangerie restaurant is a lovely setting in season but not a lot of atmosphere though the food is lovely and service great. Expect to pay double what you would for dinner in one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants though!

The spa itself is very nice, the steam room a little dangerous though as there is a step down in to it which when the steam blasts constantly in front of the door you could easily miss. The metal door handles probably not the best idea either. Golf is good for beginners but for the real stuff you will need I to go to one of the bigger courses in areas such as Vilamoura.

Saying all that for what we paid off season, the setting, cleanliness, food and comfortable beds it was good value for money, and it's true the staff could not be faulted. All of the team speak fantastic English and nothing is too much trouble. Would go again in season but hire a car next time! And as a top go to the restaurant Crispims in Fuseta, really reasonable and the food is absolutely amazing!!!!

Room Tip: Go for a suite, even the sofa beds are comfy.

We didn't want much on this holiday, just some warm weather, clean beaches and plenty of relaxation. We found all of this in abundance at Vila Monte.The staff were so friendly and helpful it felt like a home from home.
It is very remote, especially if you don't have your own car as there is no public bus service and the nearest village, Moncarapacho,doesn't have a taxi service. We made good use of the twice daily shuttle bus down to Fuzeta to explore the beaches and restaurants. We also used it to hitch a ride to the railway station at Moncarapacho/Fuzeta to get into Olhao and Tavira.

We did find the restaurant rather expensive although the food was good but not excellent for the price. The air conditioning was quite noisy and sometimes I just wished we could turn it off but overall this is one of the best holidays we have ever had.

Room Tip: Garden rooms have great views down to the bay and into the mountains to watch the sunset. If you are...

An ideal place to relax in the sun for a few days, enjoying the different pools, the Spa, the tennis court, the fitness room, the Golf and the view. The staff is very nice and very helpful. The Spa is particularly nice with a steam bath and a cold bath, in a very clean environment.
