You need a car but they do provide a limited courtesy bus down to the town centre. Rooms/Suites really well stocked and comfortable. Olympics were on so thanks for a great TV too. Lots of activities for the children in the pool.

This was our fourth stay at Monte Santo. If anything the service has improved on last year and that was already top class. New TV offer, new on line check in and a new menu in the restaurant . We will be back-again!
