“Go to Reguengos de Monsaraz (Alentejo)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

Monsaraz is a beautiful place to visit in Alentejo. This familiar hotel is perfectly located with a privileged view to Monsaraz. The pool and surrounding area are very nice. And the sky is amazing to watch.
The room was comfortable but very simple and "empty".
The breakfast was good.

What a welcome. Being slightly disabled with a broken leg and a mobility scooter!! we were instantly made to feel like part of the family.

We were shown to our very well appointed room which was large enough to manouvere my scooter around.
Big comfortable double beds, wifi, and large bathrooms.

One of the most amazing things about this hotel is the location,the sky at night from the balcony of our room was spectacular 1000s of stars.This location is unique for the skyscape!!

As we had arrived quite late and being quite immobile we decided to eat in the restaurant and wow what an experience course after course of locally produced food arrived and it was such a delicious dining experience.We tasted all the local delicies of Alentejo and it was the best way to truly taste the local produce.

After dinner drinks are served round the open fire in the lounge and this was a great way to meet fellow guests.

Massage and Facials are offered by appointment with Victoria the owner and I can honestly say as one who has experienced facials and massages worldwide,this was the best facial and massage I have ever experienced. (i have lived in Thailand!!)
I cannot express how much we enjoyed or stay here and how welcome we were made to feel.

i will return in fact I am about to book again!!

Room Tip: Ladies book a treatment with Victoria.

Monte Alerta is a haven of comfort, peace and graciousness in the Alentejo. Well-situated to visit Evora, Elvas, and only 2 hours away from the Algarve, it is a perfect home base for visiting Portugal’s interior. The house is vast and welcoming – cool in the hot hours of the day. The swimming pool and surrounding gardens are wonderful. Rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Bathrooms are generous and have all been recently renovated. Rooms are well air-conditioned as is the breakfast room and some of the public spaces. Monte Alerta is a family affaire and guests are welcomed with warmth and enthusiasm. Monsaraz is 5 minutes away, Reguengos 15 mins by car. There are many very good restaurants for traditional Alentejo cuisine close by. Monsaraz is just by the Europe’s largest artificial lake (created in 2004), it is in the heart of the Megalith-Dolmen and Menhir region and part of the “dark skies” network for astronomy buffs.
We highly recommend Monte Alerta for everyone: couples and families alike!

Room Tip: all the rooms are lovely - there is also a second guest house called Monte Santa Caterina 5 minutes...
