Monchique Resort & Spa
Monchique (Algarve), Faro, Portugal

Hotel details

The resort is situated in one of the most beautiful nature areas in the Algarve

Where you are going...
The resort is situated in one of the most beautiful nature areas in the Algarve: the Monchique mountain area, also known as the ‘garden of the Algarve’: A stunning area for walking, re-energizing and not least, bathing in hot springs that are 2,000 years old. These pure and crystal clear waters boast dozens of important minerals. The resort is approximately 15 minutes from the towns of Portimão and Silves, and approximately a 60-minute car journey from Faro airport. The beach of Alvor is approximately 20 minutes drive from the hotel.

Why you’ll love it...
You may recognise the building? This hotel was among our top Portugal picks. Its doors were closed for a complete renovation. The hotel reopened in June 2016, with a fresh face to its restaurants, reception, the wellness centre and fitness centre. Pack your favourite tea – there is a kettle in the room! Walking tour to ‘Caldas de Monchique’ where you find the thermal water source. You can even drink the fresh water from the source!

Rooms

The resort offers 190 suites in total. All suites are the same size: 60m2. The executive suite in contrast measures 90m2. The suites with sea views are also located by a continuous mountain road. (Despite it being 20km away, on clear days you can see the sea!) If you’re looking for peace and quiet, we recommend the suites at the rear of the building. Although they offer less spectacular views (mountain view), the situation of these suites is a little quieter. Each suite has a separate bedroom, living room, kitchenette, 2 bathrooms (one with bath and another with bath/shower), flat screen TV and balcony.

Top: Fantastisch verblijf, heel persoonlijke service, niets is het personeel te veel, iedereen is even vriendelijk. Het yogadeck is een heel prettige plek voor yoga, pilates en personal training. De Gym is mooi. De hotelkamer is eigenlijk geen kamer maar een mooi appartement met volledige keuken, twee badkamers en een ruime woonkamer. Echt een perfect resort. 

Tip:De matrassen zijn te hard. Die zouden vervangen kunnen worden. Het onverwarmde zwembad heeft dringend renovatie nodig. Er ontbreken veel tegels op de bodem en langs de zijkanten en dat maakt een armoedige indruk.
