The Algarve region

Only 45 minutes drive from Faro airport, Carvoeiro is ideally situated on the stunning central Algarge coast characterised by dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches set against the backdrop of the Monchique Mountains. There are plenty of places to visit and traditional local towns and villages to explore. Slide and Splash waterpark is only 5 minutes away by car in Lagoa and other nearby activities include, Zoo Marine, horseriding, walking, boat-trips to explore the caves and grottos along the coast, and of course golfing on one of the many courses in this area. Both Lisbon and Seville are within reach for a day trip.


Monte Dourado is situated on a quiet hill top location in the centre of Carvoeiro with stunning sea views, yet it is only a few minutes walk to local supermarkets, restaurants, bars, the village square and beach.

Carvoeiro is a popular holiday resort for families, couples and golfers. It has an attractive square and small beach. Other beaches are a short drive away. There are plenty of restaurants to suit every taste and price range and a fair sprinkling of water holes. There are a number of small supermarkets, and the Municipal Market where local farmers sell fresh produce. Larger supermarkets are to be found in nearby Lagoa.

"A beuatiful apartment"

We had an excellent 2 week stay at the apartment - it was our first time in Portugal and having explored the area during our visit we found Carvoeiro to be the ideal location for accessing beaches, good restaurants, scenic coastal walks and tourist attractions. The apartment itself is spacious, well-appointed and well maintained and the staff very attentive and helpful. A great holiday experience!

"Thank you for renting out your fabulous apartment"

This is a really lovely apartment. Fully equipped kitchen, including a juicer so that you can make the most of the delicious local oranges, two good sized bedrooms, a comfortable lounge, a balcony, two bathrooms and access to four on site swimming pools. Easy walking distance to the beach and the town. And the cherry on the cake was that a lovely, friendly cleaning lady came in each day, so I didn't have to spend time doing housework. Definitely recommended.

"1st class!!"

I stayed in this apartment October half term week with my Husband and 15 year old daughter. The apartment is outstanding and really is a "home from home" and we thoroughly enjoyed our weeks holiday here. Everything went smoothly from initially booking the apartment direct with the owners and the wonderfully helpful reception staff who booked taxi transfers and looked after us during our stay.
The apartment is huge and is spotlessly clean. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which my daughter loved as she had her own space. The kitchen is very well equipped with full oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave so you could have eaten in all the time if that's what you wanted. We prefer to sample the local restaurants on an evening only using the kitchen for snacks etc.
The apartment gets the sun on an afternoon on the balcony which is lovely to have a drink or two and watch the sun go down. It's also nice and private with no other apartments overlooking it.
Carvoeiro main square is less than 10 minutes walk away with the beautiful sandy beach but the area is hilly so the walk back up is VERY steep. Luckily it's not too far up the steep hill but could be a problem for some guests with limited mobility.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this apartment and the Monte Dourado complex to anyone.

"Wonderful apartment,high quality development and perfect location for village"

We hadn't been to Portugal or a development like this before but would highly recommend it. The apartment was beautifully furnished and well equipped and in the best part of the development for views and proximity to the village. The pools were excellant and the grounds planted to a very high quality and well maintained.Its a beautiful development. Its 5 mins walk to the village but not too close that any noise disturbed you. The appartment was spotless with a friendly daily maid to do the cleaning and the kitchen had every appliance you needed. Internet worked well and the balcony gave views both to the pool and the hills and beach which was perfect.We had a teenager and a 13 yr old and both made friends and had a great time.We would thoroughly recommend it.

"Great location"

We have stayed in other apartments in Monte Dourado before and this accommodation is equally as good.It was unfortunate that we had noisy neighbours who spoilt the tranquility for both us and other visitors.This was no fault of the owner,we were just unlucky.We found the mattress to be extremely uncomfortable so we placed blankets underneath the base sheet which helped.The accommodation is in a good location,about five minutes walk to a wide choice of restaurants.Our maid was lovely and friendly.Our favourite restaurant is A Rede which is situated at the top of restaurant hill - the grilled sea bass is fantastic.We hired a car and visited Vilamoura ,Silves ,Alvor and Albufeira. A car is very useful for trips out but not essential.Petrol prices are similar to England.

Thankyou for taking the time to provide a review for our property. We are really sorry that your holiday was disrupted by noisy neighbours. As you say this is out with our control but we hope that you did report any disturbances to Monte Dourado reception as it is not fair that some inconsiderate guests spoil things for everyone else. This problem is unusual for Monte Dourado which is normally a very quiet and peaceful resort and we hope that your experience hasn't put you off returning to MD in the future. As for the beds, we accept that they are firm, but having slept on them ourselves we do not find them uncomfortable and have had no other adverse comments regarding them; it is probably a matter of what you are used to

"Good standard of accommodation in a calm and friendly holiday campus"

Jasmin B093 is a clean and well appointed apartment within easy walking distance of Carvoeiro town and beach (something of a hill to climb, but that is true wherever you stay around the town). The maid service was regular, good and unobtrusive. Unusually, there is good provision of cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment. Balcony is not large, but comfortable for 4 to eat together and sit outside to enjoy the palm-filtered sun. Can just see the sea, but its not really a sea view. Monte Dourado reception was efficient and helpful. Variety of pools, all that we used were in very good condition. All in all, a very good holiday experience.

"Comfortable and welcome."

A great location, with a number of places to eat, drink and relax in the area. The flat itself was spacious and welcoming, with a comfortable family feel. I would definitely go there again, or recommend it to a friend.

"What a fabulous place to stay!"

Carvoeiro although a hilly place, is truly a wonderful place to stay. There are lots of fabulous places to eat and the people are so warm and friendly. The apartment was wonderfully equipped and met all our requirements. We loved the added benefits of wi-fi, daily maid service and the pool towels. The sun hits the balcony in the afternoon and it is lovely to sit, relax and enjoy. Our holiday was fabulous, Carvoeiro being a truly wonderful place and our apartment having more than we required. Would definitely recommend both the resort and accommodation to anyone wanting to visit.
