Beware!!! This is no longer the luxury hotel. The hotel is closed and the wife is running a "villa" with a similar name up a dirt road behind the hotel. Terribly hard to find. Overpriced and clearly attracting guests using the former property. Found out the old hotel foreclosed. Bath has with no stopper and only tepid water. TV does...

There was no hot water, Luke warm only, the cistern was faulty and the breakfast was basic. Check-in took what seemed like hours. Having spent a hot afternoon driving around trying to find the place all...

Without question the Monte do Casal was a special place. Maybe not to everyone's taste but unequivocally it had a feel good factor. Perhaps it was just affluent good taste which few seemed aware of combined with stunning surroundings, excellent cooking and old fashioned, discreet service. Keen for a revisit, I'd driven a few km to book only to find...

We also stayed at Monte do Casal in September and we had a superb holiday. Everything from the warm welcome when we arrived to the small details such as the chilled hand towels and sorbet offered poolside by the waiter, made our holiday. We are very surprised and quite frankly find difficulty in understanding the many complaints made by Mr....
