We are in the middle of our stay and this is the first time I have written a review before the end of a holiday. This resort is lovely, clean spacious apartments, numerous swimming pools. Staff are excellent, really helpful and obliging. Small negative but worth mentioning is access. Resort is set in a very 'hilly' location, so if like...

Our vacation in Monte Dourado was very nice. The appartment was good, the service excellent! The appartment clean, has everything, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, internet, nice livingroom with balcony, kitchen with dishwasher, wasmachine, fully equiped. Swimming pools are in the near direction of all appartments. But: if you don't have a car, the climb uphill from the center of Carvoeiro...

Stayed in this resort for 5 nights only last week! It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The receptionists were always friendly and helpful and the daily maid was really nice. The views from the hilltop are really pretty. There is a heated pool in the centre of the complex, as the others can be rather cold at...

We came here for just over a week during the Easter holidays. The apartments are clean, spacious and the complex has a really nice relaxed feel about it. The heated pool was great for us especially when the sun was out and the location is great as a 5 minute walk into the town and beach. Finally the staff were...

We got a great deal on this apartment and were very happy with the facilities. Two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, living/dining room and very well equipped kitchen with d/w and washing machine. There was a daily maid service which was not expected and very welcome. A great base for a relaxing holiday. Lots of pool areas and tennis courts. If...

The reception staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The bed was first class, probably the best one I've slept on in Portugal. The shower in the bathroom was powerful. Overall the apartment was First Class and I would have no reservation in recommending it.

We booked this 2 bedroom apartment direct with the owner although the apartment is part of the Monte Dourado resort and is serviced by them. The apartment was clean and spacious with all the facilities you would hope for. There are 2 bathrooms one with a bath and shower and one with just a shower. The kitchen was well equipped....

Visited on an Easy Jet last minute holiday. The villa was brilliant. Immaculate and with every appliance and needs catered for. The villas are just out of the town centre, yes is an incline but if you explore and enter via the rear of the complex, the walk is far kinder. We walked along the cliffs for several hours and...

My wife and myself stayed here for a wonderful holiday in Carvoeiro. The location is central of uphill but close to everything. The apartments are spacious and clean with all mod cons but no aircon.out was OK in Sept but a hot July might be different. But I would definitely would recommend this resort.
