"The apartment was very comfortable and welcoming."
We were very happy to have stayed at this apartment - everything was perfect. We were welcomed with a lovely basket of food and wine, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we could possible want, and there were endless dvd's for all ages and video games to play for those days where the weather wasn't the best. The owner was fantastic and answered any questions immediately; she also provided us with helpful suggestions and recommendations about the area. We would definitely like to stay in the same apartment again.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment comfortable, with plenty of entertainment.

We (my husband, myself and two teenage daughters) stayed for 10 days at the end of August/early September. The apartment itself is just faultless, clean, stylish and very well equipped.
The Monte Santo Resort was stunning. The pool was never crowded and there was never the rush for sunbeds. The staff were always helpful and polite although sometimes a little slow with service but nothing major.
There are shuttle buses to three local beaches and if you want to explore further afield I would recommend hiring a car.
All in all a wonderful holiday - thank you!
It is really good to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment at Monte Santo Resort. Thank you for yor review and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.

The apartment was amazing, even better than the photos. In a perfection location for the Clubhouse and pool. Even the walk to Carvoeiro was manageable (25 mins) from the bottom gate.
Thank you for your review. We are really pleased to hear that our apartment and the resort were even better than you imagined from the pictures.

"Fantastic Apartment - Ticked all the boxes and more!"
Just returned from a fantastic fortnight at Liz's lovely apartment in the Monte Santo Resort. This is our 6th year holidaying in Portugal, and Carvoeiro and the Monte Santo definitely come out on top. the apartment is beautifully furnished and has everything you could possibily need. My 9 year old son was particularly delighted with the playstation and collection of DVD's. There was also some inflatables for the pool and beach equipment avilable for use which was an added bonus. The location of the apartment wihin the resort was just perfect as it is very close to the pool and the sun loungers on the balcony were great late afternoon when it was a bit shaded. There is a jacuzzi on the roof which is lovely and relaxing early evening when the sun is not so hot. There is a very comprehensive information pack and Juliet is easily contactable should further assistance or information be required. Liz, the owner is a pleasure to deal with and the booking process was simple and efficiently dealt with. The resort itself is great. Very clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and attentive and our children made good use of both the outdoor and indoor pools. The resort has a nice restaurant however we tended to eat in either Monte Carvoeiro or Carvoeiro town as there are plenty of good restaurants there. Carvoeiro is lovely little town and it has a real party atmosphere on a Saturday night when young and old dance together in the little square in front of the beach. If you hire a car then the area is a perfect base for exploring places like Silves, Monchique, Sagres and Lagos as well as a lot of beautiful beaches close by. We will definitely be back and would recommend the apartment, resort and area.
Dear Jackie and Scott thank you so much for your excellent review. We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Liz

"Great accommodation and resort"
The apartment was great and fully as described, Liz was fantastic with her emails answering any questiions that I had. The apartment is imaculate and we enjoyed the sun on balcony when the baby was asleep and our son enjoyed the great selection of DVD's when he was chilling out! Monte Santo itself had everything you could need with fantastic swimming pools for the adults and kids to enjoy and a good restaurant although we only ate their once as we prefered to sample the great restaurants in the small town. All in all a great place for Families or couples
Thank you so much, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the facilities both in our apartment and at the resort.

We stayed at the apartment for Christmas 2010 and enjoyed our stay. The apartment was excellent and of a very high quality with all the necessary mod coms. As well as being modern, it catered for the family and was quite homely. The range of free DVDs and PS2 games that were available made a huge difference and the children loved it. We will definitely stay again and have recommended it to a few friends. The apartment manager/caretaker was very nice and helpful.
Thank you so much for your nice comments and we look forward to hearing from your friends.

"excellent - very helpful owner, outstanding apartment and complex"
You cannot go wrong with this option. Myself, my husband, 7 year old and 18 month old had a lovely time, it rained a couple of days so we had the option of the indoor pool, games room and playstation, when it was sunny it was glorious. The lady who rents this apartment provided outstanding service. It is a very quiet complex but that was exactly what we were looking for.
Thank you so much for your review, of course we are sorry to hear that you were there at a time when it rained, unfortunately low season times can be a little hit and miss on that score. But pleased to hear that the heated indoor pool with its Jacuzzi, Turkish Bath and Sauna came in useful during those days, along with our library of DVD's and play station games. Low season at the resort does mean a more peaceful stay so we are happy to hear that you enjoyed this aspect of your visit. We look forward to welcoming you back to the resort again soon.

"Exceeded our expectations"
We had a fantastic break at the apartment, it contained everything we needed and more. The furnishings were to a very high standard and in great condition. The resort was delightful with great facilities and well situated for access to Carvoeiro and also the main motorway to visit other parts of the Algarve. All arrangements with the owners went smoothly and their information pack about the resort and directions to get there from Faro were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this others. This is certainly a five star apartment. If we return to the Algarve this will be our first choice.
Thank you so much for your excellent review and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

We enjoyed our holiday in Monte Santo immensely. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable and was appointed to an excellent standard. The pool and sunbathing areas were really nice with plenty of sunbeds and never too busy. Mama Mia and the courtyard resturants were worth finding "Sticky Fingers " band made a great night out. Thanks for a memorable holiday and we would definately return in the near future.
Regards Jim and Carol Hendry
We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Monte Carvoeiro (the courtyard you referred to) is a really nice spot to spend an evening, it has some nice restaurants, clubs and bars. We look forward to your return visit.

"Superb Luxury Accommodation"
Really luxurious appartment in an excellent complex. In prime location within complex - close to (but not beside) pools, overlooking open space, with sea view. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard. We all enjoyed the pools, which were never crowded - indoor pool gave option of avoiding strong mid-day sun. High quality restaurant, bar and service in clubhouse. Less than 10 min stroll to nearby town - lovely beach, shopping, restaurants and great buzz at night time. A huge hit with all our family.
Thank you for your excellent review. The pedestrian exit from the resort does make the walk to the village very pleasant and short. When there you can enjoy a day on the beautiful beach surrounded by a wide selection of shops and restaurants.
