8/10 Very good

Had a great stay with a beautiful spacious accommodation and large balcony in ‘romantic suite’. Great service, staff were really helpful and provided a lot of information. Breakfast was really good. Gym and additional amenities were not quite on par with rest of the resort but enjoyed our massage at the spa however a little pricey.

10/10 Exceptional

The best example I could use of how attentive and caring the staff is, is that a group member of our trip had her birthday on the trip. Without us having to ask, remind or notify the manager send over a beautiful (large) cake with candles and flowers and a complimentary hand written card wishing her the best and lovely birthday. The time we went in was off season - as such there was less to do but nonetheless the peace and quiet served us well on our vacation. Really recommend this stay - but would also suggest traveling by car as the distances can get quite large if you wish t visit other regions of Algarve. The public system is not that accessible or great.

Great houses well equipped and good comfort
We had 3 nice bedrooms and comfortable beds. The kitchen is well equipped. Service marvellous. The SPA did not offer warm shower, but nice swimmingpool with hot sauna and Turkish steam bath. Nice floor heating in the apartment. Excellent place even for a winter stay.

6/10 Good

We have stayed at Monte Santo many times sine 2013, but obviously had a long gap over the last 2 years due to the pandemic. Although the resort still remains lovely and overall an attractive place to stay, we have definitlery noticed a gradual decline in maintenence both with the apartments and the grounds. The apartmnets are begining to look tired particularly the kitchens, internal walls need painting, the grass isnt cut regulary anymore and there are weeds in gutters and in pavements, making the place look scruffy compared to how it used to be, rather immnaculate. The complex is in decline and has seen its better years. Maid service is no longer daily. Its still lovely overall and we would go again due to familiarality as we have been over 10 times, but its definitrly no longer 5 star in our opinion, but a solid 4 star.
