Fab hotel. Yummy food. Amazing staff. Brill location.

Had a fantastic holiday. Just been for a week. 5 of us in 3 rooms. I was the only person that had a 5.5 year old little girl there and she loved it and the staff were wonderful with her. Couldn't do enough for you. Guests lovely and friendly too. Can't wait to go back again. The hotel should be praised for its wonderful staff who work there. They truly are an asset as nothing is too much for them. The food is buffet style and is delicious. We were always down early for breakfast then went for walk and back for a coffee there. Evening meal was fab. Loads of choice every night. Didn't want to go home. I agree some aspects may be dated but the positives far outweigh a few rusty bits outside. And whilst we were there they had workmen in renovating some exterior bits. Hotel was clean and friendly which was main thing. And wifi is free so don't pay extra for a room with wifi as you will get it anyway.

The best thing about my stay was...

On the beach. Fantastic staff. Lovely food.

Improvements needed

Rooms cleaned daily by very nice and helpful staff.10 out of 10.We had a room overlooking a noisy road at night..very difficult to sleep as the door to the balcony was not soundproof,perhaps it may be worth replacing as they have seen better days. The lobby and bar area was very pleasant and the entertainment at night was excellent.I would strongly advise the management to visit hotels like Vila Gale in Tavira just to see how buffet food should be prepared and kept at a proper temperature. Sunloungers were very comfortable but the pool area needs a major overhaul....rusty ironworks and weeds in abundance...needs a little TLC!! .As for value for money it was very reasonable.Will I be back? Unless they want me to advise them how to make this hotel as attractive as it was 20 / 30 years ago.

The best thing about my stay was...

Friendly staff , except for a few men in dining room.

First rate hotel

This hotel is lovely. It has a fab location - just few minutes to centre of resort. The food was great - different choices every day. It was great value for money. Parking was easy and secure in hotel grounds. You can rent beach towels from Reception (with refundable deposit). Staff were all very friendly and Reception staff were extremely helpful. There is free Internet in Reception with a printer to print boarding cards (if required). Would definitely recommend this hotel and we will be back next year.

The best thing about my stay was...

There was no charge for things like fridge, safe, remote control and air conditioning. It is also right on the beach.

RELAXING BREAK IN LOVELY HOTEL

On entering Vasco da Gama hotel the reception and ground floors appeared old fashioned but once you ventured outside it was altogether different. The pool area was modern and well laid out. There were two spacious seating areas where you could enjoy a quiet drink both with views across beach to the sea. We found the garden area near the separate garden rooms to be ideal if you couldn't get a sunbed near the pool. We were given a room on 4th floor at front of main building. It was well appointed, the beds were very large and extremely comfortable including proper pillows. Our walls and curtains were white with a large print wallpaper over the headboard. The shower was huge with all the hot water you could ask for. Only small problem was only news programmes in English on TV. We could get Wi-Fi all over the hotel which was good. Traffic was a bit noisy in our room but didn't stop us from sleeping. We found the food was good quality but not always to our liking - I think they catered for their Portugese/Spanish guests more than the English. The dining room was charming and overlooked the pool area. It was always sportlessly clean however there were several steps leading down to this area which some guests seemed to really struggle with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again sometime in the future.

The best thing about my stay was...

Comfortable hotel and the closeness of Monte Gordo's fantastic beach

Great again!

This was our fourth visit and will not be the last! Some guests have been going there for over 20 years. It is an old style hotel built in the early fifties and the top floor has the original tiles and furniture so is charming. It is right on the beach and is very clean and offers old world charm. Breakfast offers all you could wish for. Staff are all very helpful and make you welcome. Some Portuguese entertainment in the evenings where you meet other guests in the bar and not many from the UK. This area of Portugal is where the Portuguese holiday so is quite tradiditional. Looking forward to next yearl
