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 👍🏻... More

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... More

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,... More

Excellent apartment, large rooms lots of space and good facilities in apartment, pools alwYs good and clean and looked after, and you can always get sunbeds at any time of day even in August that's a big thumbs up! Only downside of resort is its on a big hill! And it's steep!

Started coming here in about 2007; this was after falling in love with Carvoeiro several years earlier and staying elsewhere. About 2012, we were told that this was now a dated site and that it was losing out to newer or improved locations in Carvoeiro. But hey, after a brief lull, we came back and it still has the magic.... More

This complex has five pools and just 5 minutes walk to the main square and the beach. The apartments are furnished to a very high standard and the reception team are always on hand to deal with trips, car hire, taxis and any other matters (no matter how small).
