Just back from a fantastic 10 days in Monte santo. I have been to Carvoeiro a number of times but this was my first time visiting this particular resort and it's now our firm favourite. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment and it has everything you'd expect from 5 star. The Irish and uk TV channels were an extra...

We have been to carvoiero a few times so have stayed at other five star properties but this was the best so far. Stayed in a two bed suite for £80 per night, initially booked for three adults but then changed to four for no extra cost by the hotel. They also put us in a room close to reception...

Good place for families, nice townhouse with a lot of place to live. The restaurant is somewhat disappointed with almost the same menu (half board) every evening. And please avoid the room service which is really a disaster.

This complex was really lovely. The pools and facilities were perfect for us. The outside pool was enormous but a little cold. ( it was the first week in April and some places had still not opened) We had a townhouse which was excellent for us as we had our 20 month old grandson with us. So some night were...

This resort was simply amazing. From the moment we arrived to our departure nothing was too trouble for the very attentive staff. The resort was clean, modern with great facilities, excellent food (even though we stayed self catering) we ate at the restaurant on a couple of occasions. Our kids loved the pool(s) and kids club and we enjoyed the...
