Monchique Resort & Spa
Great location and fantastic base for our cycling
Excellent base for our cycling trip. Superb rooms and very quiet wHich was ideal after long hot bike rides in the surrounding hills. Food and service was very good and so were the restaurants in the local villages close by.

Lovely Mountain Modern Hotel
Large modern hotel and spa. Large comfortable room. Didn't eat at the restaurant, I thought it rather expensive however the breakfast was fantastic. We stayed at the end of autumn so the hotel was quiet. I was not able to obtain a spa treatment - was told by recpetion, who did not check with the spa room that they were all booked. As I had come across this comment at other hotels I suspect they did not have sufficient therpists available to meet a decliing demand.

Beautiful Monchique
Great night away. Lovely hotel set in the mountains just outside Monchique. Only problem was the heat wave 46 degrees.

A Room With A View
Excellent hotel and spa in the mountains for those looking for a relaxing base to explore the mountains of Southern Portugal. The panoramic suites have amazing views of the surrounding mountains and Lagos and the Atlantic beyond.
