Ah my favourite hotel. Think we have been here well over ten times in the past few years. The hotel is old world as it was built almost 60 years ago and is so quaint and beautiful. They have made strides in modernising the facities over the past few years yet retain the qualities that make the hotel unique. The... More

Four of us returned to Monte Gordo to stay at Vasco da Gama for 10 days. It was brilliant choice. The hotel itself is in a prime spot and attached directly to a wonderful beach. Excellent accommodation

We visited for a week and found the temperatures were up as high as 38 degrees! Fortunately the pool was lovely, the beach and sea a couple of hundred metres away (with some of the finest sand we've come across) and our apartment like a fridge - even without the air conditioning on all the time! There were very few... More

We had a great holiday at the Vasco da Gama hotel in Monte Gordo. We spend one week here and stayed in a large room on the fourth floor. Nice room and kept immaculately clean by the fantastic housekeeping staff. Pools were lovely - the small pool was a bit too cold in the mornings but warmed up nicely in... More

Vasco Da Gama is a great value hotel. The pool area is lovely and the amazing golden beach is at the back. Towel rental for a €10 deposit is excellent for the beach or pool. We loved our stay. Fab communal areas (living room and games room) also. Monte Gordo is a fairly quiet area (no night clubs etc) which... More

The best location in Monte Gordo, it's literally on the beach. Definitely a 3 star plus hotel or a 4 star run-down hotel. The 5th it´s the upper floor and also the hottest (good when not in summertime) , on the other hand you don't have any noise from upper neighbors. Any way, there's a good functioning air-conditioning. It has... More
