Wonderful stay in the mountains with an ocean view
The hotel is situated in the Monchique mountain region. We booked a panoramic suite which gave us views all the way to Portimao and the ocean- wonderful. The hotel is very nice , clean and modern and very well equipped. The staff are doing a great job and are very friendly. This is a perfect stay for families with small children as the hotel facilities are great for all members of the family. The SPA is really relaxing and wonderfully built and equipped with numerous showers and steam rooms. This is a perfect stay if you are tired of the loud and arrogant tourists in the all inclusive resorts- so if you are one of those don’t go here - this is a quiet and relaxing mountain resort with hiking possibilities and to enjoy nature. The restaurants and bars offer a wide variety of local produce and drinks that are fantastic and a must try.

10/10 Exceptional

The Monchique Resort and Spa was everything and more that we expected. We were welcomed by a very pleasant staff and shown around the resort. We arrived a bit early and the front desk worked at getting us an updated room asap. In fact they had one ready when we returned from our tour. Room was spacious with a beautiful view. We took advantage of a morning hike with a Monchique staff and it was a excellent. The Spa, which we booked, was outstanding. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had no complaints and commented on how everyone working at the Spa was so happy and helpful.
