We stayed here as a family of 5. Booked a 2 bed apartment but got upgraded to a 3 bed townhouse. Very nice accommodation, spacious, nicely furnished but not 5 Star in my opinion as some signs of wear in places. Having said that all the staff we encountered provided a 5 star service. Only issue we had was on...

We had a great ten night stay in Monte Santo in September. We stayed in a two bed garden access apartment which was spotless and so convenient for the pools. The indoor pool was fantastic for smaller children and the outdoor pools were never over crowded. We found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly too.
