this is our second time at this hotel and we will almost certainly be back next year. The location is perfect for this resort. Right on the beach (you can walk back to your room for a shower), opposite the bike hire shop, adjacent to the bike ride to the next town. The hotel offers a good breakfast and evening...

The main reason to go to Monte Gordon is the beach which is enormous, clean and well served by bars and lounger hire. There is still a small fishing community and locals dredge for tiny shellfish to eat? The hotel is reasonably attractive but the rooms (at least ours) was in need of refurbishment. The restaurants provided a good selection...

Highly recommend, we didn't have big expectations for a 3* and a cheap deal but were very pleasantly surprised! Perfect little spot right on the beach (beautiful beach. Was nice and quiet for this time of year, sunbeds cost us €6 for 2 for the day). We had a sea view room we had was very large like an apartment...

It must be a good sign that there is little turnover in staff from year to year. They really are a splendid...

Normally stay at the Hotel Alcazar. Fully booked this time. After looking at the reviews decided to book the vasco da game. I found a good half board deal on this website. Checked in early, room was landslide, but view was ok. Evening meal was buffet style, as was breakfast. The standard of the meals was excellent. Even the coffee...
