We really enjoyed our stay at Monte Alerta. We were warmly greeted by Sergio and given a welcoming tour of the hotel. The room was very nice, the bed comfortable and the bathrooms were very clean!

Breakfast was adequate we really enjoyed sitting in the garden enjoying our breakfast. We also enjoyed stargazing by the pool in the evening. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Monte Alerta is beautiful. This is not by accident it is because Sergio, his staff and his mum work at making it so. There is a pride in the presentation of this lovely B&B. We had a wonderful week here.This is a excellent base to enjoy the local area and remain out of the tourist crush You can easily be in the old, walled town of Monsaraz on the nearby hilltop to watch the sunrise and back for a fantastic local style breakfast. Then you could be back up the hill enjoying the old town before the tourist buses arrive. As the day heats up beat a retreat to Monte Alerta's gardens or pool. This is a great place in a great place.

Innkeeper Sergio tells us that this farm house has been the family home for 8 generations. The house is "rambling", presumably because of additions over the generations. The location is peaceful and bucolic, with fruit trees near the house, and a little donkey and two tiny ponies in fenced yards. The bed room and adjoining bathroom were clean and spacious, and we had an enclosed patio with a view of the old, walled town of Monsaraz on the nearby hilltop. The glass patio door and windows had shutter panels, so the room can be made completely dark for a deep, relaxing sleep. A quiet air conditioner can be used if desired. Guests have access to a swimming pool with an outside bar, and can take breakfast either in a large dining room or at tables outside. Sergio and the staff are solicitous, making the stay a real pleasure.

This is not a pet friendly hotel for dogs!

Owners do not like dogs stating they smell!
Also told us rugs etc would have to be removed from room.

Why say your a Pet Friendly Hotel when your not??

If your traveling with dogs my advice book elsewhere. We found plenty of nearby hotels only too happy to welcome us...

Akyramos, Proprietário at Monte Alerta, responded to this reviewResponded September 30, 2017

Hello and i would like that you could at least tell the full version...
I receive you and the only part that is true from all the things you are telling is that i had to take the Rugs because its normal to do it.
I didn´t told that you are not wellcome or that you could not stay.
We do have dogs, donkey, poneys cats, and a lot of clients bring the animals with them so i really don´t understand your opinion.
It´s true that we just have 3 rooms avaiable for pets, because they have a balcony but i did show one of those...
Better luck next time and thanks for the comentary...

Sweet Quiet Hangout! If you are around Monsaraz for some Astro-Vacation this Place is ideal. Its very close(2min. car drive) to the observatory.
Monte Alerta has a Nice Sunny Pool to Hang and Provides tradicional portuguese breakfast from the Area!
