    We went at a non peak time but the breakfast was very varied. The waiters very attentive.The suite was very ample, the furniture not very modern but adequate.

    i liked staying there as i stayed there last year food and room was great and i would be staying there again

    The rooms are extremely comfortable, spacious and clean. There is a sufficient amount of sunbeds around the pool. The breakfast offers a good variety of choice. Also, the bar is tasteful, relaxed and the music is excellent.

    Nothing we didn't like.

    Everything - it may have been a four star when it was built,but it is now very shabby and requires a definite refurbishment to be allowed to retain the four stars -- the staff also need replacing as they just can't be bothered.

    We have stayed in room number 810 and our frinds in 812 The Hotel: too many people - not enough elevators! breakfast was too busy! A lot of noise from above and next door!! Rooms: very old not clean bath room is very old. The sink, the bath and the ceiling are RUSTY and the toilet and the bidet are broken!! We are traveling to the Algarve 2 x a year at least, but we'll never come back to this Hotel.

    location

    No ironing facility, poor air conditioning, ants in the room, very bad hairdressers, dirty pool, very rude and unhelpful reception staff, poor entertanment in the bar,

  • Family with children

    Hotel Montechoro is nicely located at the top of the strip, The hotel rooms are nice and big, if you have small children with you.The hotel has everything you need for a family Holiday but it is very basic.

    I felt the hotel bedroom carpets were very stained and their beds are not very comfortable.

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    Its location was quite good, as it was close to the nightlife area.

    Yes, the air conditioning was basically only in name, it was sooo light that it felt as if someone was gently waving a single sheet of paper at you, nothing more. It was appaling, would never stay here again.

  • Family with children

    Hotel was practical and clean, good location because of free busses to beach and old town.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Location is good and staff on the whole are friendly and efficient. Breakfast good and in general we had a nice stay.

    The Bed under the sheets was really stained which really freaked out my wife. We stayed here for 9 nights and knew by the reviews that the hotel is a little grubby and dated in the interior but you get over that. What really freaked me was the €1 they added onto my bill of €1530 for the one time I asked reception to call me a taxi. Also the lack of a towel rail on the Balcony, small things I know but when you come up from the pool with 3 kids and 2 adults you have a lot of wet stuff to dry for next day. In general it was ok and exactly as described in the reviews. Not sure if my wife will get over the stained mattress though.

  • Family with children

    good location, clean and tidy rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels.

    It could do with a bit more entertainment, children were a bit bored round the pool but water polo and basket ball offered for adults. Bar prices quite steep 1-2 euro's dearer than bars accross the street.

    massage service

    very old, seems to have stopped in time (in the 80s!) in its appearance and staff as well. Food was poor.

    The comfort and cleanliness of the room together with the very pleasant and helpfull staff
