Monte da Quinta 1 bed Suite with B&B – Sunrise

This was our third visit to the hotel and we will return because it is great for kids, easy to get to and is in a superb location plus we meet up with families we now know from our previous stays. It is exceptional value for money. However the service is poor and maid service is not great. Sometimes I waited ten minutes calling reception and they still didn't answer the phone! They failed to book is restaurants too when asked so we found ourselves looking for food at 9pm with kids and they left bins full of nappies unemptied overnight round the pool. Not 5 star by any stretch.

Family trip to Monte da Quinta

Not quite as good as previous years. The hotel/resort itself is starting to look tired and the staff were less helpful and friendly than we'd experienced on previous stays. The aqua aerobics, although amusing to watch, is not welcome entertainment and cheapens the place. On the flip side, the breakfast was improved and better laid out and the accommodation was still spacious and comfortable.

All that aside, we still love this place!
