Cold in January

, Bury

This was our 3rd time at Monica Isabel unfortunately it will probably be our last. The food and drinks were still fabulous for the price we paid. Unfortunately we went in a very cold spell for January. We always go in January but it's usually much warmer. Due to this, which I know is not the hotel's fault, we were freezing most of the time. The rooms have heaters which are good but the public areas and bars were freezing. No one wants to stay in their room all day but although we wrapped up we were too cold to sit in the bars. I wouldn't risk going again here in January.

Cannot fault it

, St. Helens

Stayed here for a long weekend and wasn't expecting much as it was a low cost break We arrived and was taken to our room, which was basic but nice and the view was amazing, looking out on the beach The food was beautiful and always a large range of well cooked food available, Used the indoor pool and jacuzzi, was nice and warm and clean The staff were friendly and always willing to help Would recommend this hotel Loved Portugal and took the free bus into the old town

Great December holiday

, Ireland

We stayed here for 5 nights. We were in the main building in a very large one bed apartment. Apartment had everything we needed kettle toaster cooker microwave fridge. 2 large balconies off each room. Rooms cleaned every day towels changed every day. On arrival I was a bit disappointed with our booking as the reception isn't much to look at but our room made up for it: had breakfast each morning lots of choice, the view from the restaurant is gorgeous. In between the new and old down about 10/15 minute walk to each. Entertainment In the bar each evening. Overall a great stay. Hotel has its own entrance to the beech which is lovely. Didn't use the pool as it was December but it looked to be a good size.

Location to the beach

2/10 Okay

Good location, average accomadation and food

, Ireland

Great location close to the beach. Hotel facilities spread out a lot. E.G dinning hall for all meals up two flights of stairs in a different building. Outdoor pool the same. Accomadation average. No microwave as advertised. No wifi in room. No cooker in room. Very hilly location as most of the Algarve is so not suitable for people with poor health. Staff very helpful and friendly. Also golf buggy on site to drop you around the large complex

The best thing about my stay was ...

Location. Good parking outside accomadation

Very nice hotel

, Swansea

This is a very nice hotel, the rooms we had where great loads of space and nice & clean. We where onlyon a 3 night stay & really enjoyed. The food was very good plenty of choice, the beach was literally less than 100ft to the beach. Only 1 chritisum I can think of was at meal times and as there was 5 of us and it would of been better if the waiters organised the table seating instead of all helping yourself to a table as we had a wait on one night cos there was say 2/3 people of larger tables and empty smaller tables not big enough for a family of 5 or 6. But other than that hotel was perfect would def stay here again.

Monica Isabel Beach Club

, United Kingdom

On the plus side the apartment was very spacious with a door separating the child's bedroom which was an unexpected bonus. The restaurant was on the 8th floor which gave a wonderful view overlooking the swimming pool and the beach and the food and service was good. However the apartment was tatty, with cupboard doors hanging off, knobs missing from drawers, loose tap fitments, a bedside lamp with no reachable socket to plug it in to, extremely hard beds which we found uncomfortable and dining chairs which fell apart when my son sat on them which could have resulted in serious injury. As for the sea view it was 99% hidden behind overgrown trees which was a pity.

The best thing about my stay was ...

On the whole we received excellent service from the reception staff.

Great holiday. Love the location

, Ireland

Our 6th time back to the Monica Isabel. This was our best ever. Clean apartment with great view. Good to see areas are being updated and the hotel looks great with a new coat of paint. Friendly staff and ideally located half way between old and new town with just a 15 to 20 min walk in either direction. We went self catering and enjoyed the many local restaurants for breakfast and dinner.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Location, sunshine and relaxed atmosphere. Would return in the morning if we could

Lager louts paradise

, Liverpool

The cell block we stayed in was badly in need of updating. No kettle, tv out of the dark ages, no plugs for the lamps, no shelves in the bathroom. Because it's all inclusive gangs of men drinking all day around the pool which was over crowded to the max. Positive side friendly staff good location bit but NOT stay here again. The reception area looked so dull I have seen better homeless centres. Drinks in plastic cups. Never again 😡

Location only- nothing else was good
