We stayed in apartment 86a Margarida for four nights in February. The apartment itself was booked through Booking.com as a superior apartment. In my opinion the decor was not enough to class it as superior. The bathrooms had been renovated and were really nice but the rest of the accommodations looked very dated in comparison. Although the little garden and...

Fabulous resort, great sea view apartment all home from home amenities. Maid service every day, endless supermarkets a short drive away. Fabulous beaches and great views from our balcony especially the sun sets.

We stayed here for the first time in March/April last year and liked it so much that we immediately booked for the same period in 2017. Perfect location and the steep hill homeward bound helped burn some of the calories from the great selection of local restaurants. The apartment was modern and extremely well equipped, the staff very helpful and...

Monte Dourado is a fabulous resort with every amenity you could wish for. We stayed in apartment Orquidea (b069) which had the most fabulous view over the village and Ocean. The pool is heated during the autumn through to the spring months and the resort is clean and very well maintained. If you are thinking of staying in Carvoeiro this...

Stayed here for 1 week in a 2 bed superior apartment. The apartment was very big and the rooms were a great size. Yes the accommodation is at the top of a hill but so is most places in Carvoeiro. Maid service everyday with fresh towels. A wee extra which I didn't realise was that pool towels are included 👍🏻...

Spacious apartment. We were lucky to have a large balcony. Decor in bathroom a little dated. Quiet environment. Pool area very pleasant. Always an available sunbed. Staff very helpful and well mannered.

Myself and three friends stayed for three nights in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in Mimosa. Well appointed, if a little dated, apartment. Very reasonably priced rental. Pool and grounds well cared for. Didn't venture beyond the Mimosa pool, so can't comment on others. We had no problems with sunbeds or noisy guests. Used the tennis courts a couple...

I have been sitting on this review for a few days in a bid to be as objective as I can be about our 7 day stay at Monte Dourado. We checked in on the 3 September rather late in the evening and were delighted by the beauty of our room in the Hibisco block of the resort. Very large,...
