Palace Hotel Monte Real4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Looking for a place to rest just for a couple days, with pool, we stepped on this marvellous oasis. Behind a clasical, smart castle appearance we found an elegant hotel, with great design inside and outside the rooms (big rooms btw). Very well equiped, we mostly enjoyed the pool area. Good options at the pool bar to eat (still surprised not to find Cocacola Light in this area). After just a long weekend I found the calm and relax i was looking for! Will surely come back.
It's a nice surprise in the middle of nowhere. The hotel is big, modern style. The room is very urban and has a big bed. The pool is area is ok and has a bar as well. There are two extra areas which belong to the hotel which are the Termal and the Spa. We love the experience in the spa because of the original showers they have. One is the Montreal which is cold and you can experience it as you were under a thunderstorm and rain. And the other is Amazon style which is like you were in the tropical forest listening to the birds. The area around the hotel is good to walk. And there are beaches nearby. However we preferred beaches a little further away because they were better.
Very nice building, well decorated, spacious and confortable room, good breakfast. The best is the surrounding nature park, with plenty of outdoor sports facilities. The hotel just missed to advert clients that the spa wasn't working...
Situated in the heart of the village, the hotel is very comfortable, very well furnished, and has a lovely bathroom. The rooms have a balcony with table and chairs for you to appreciate the environment around the hotel. It is a quiet place, wonderful to rest and unwind. The staff is really friendly and nice!
I made de reservation the week prior and made sure to call asking how the hotel worked regarding the spa, massages, etc. Being preagnant I was looking forward for a weekend of total relaxation. When we arrived to the hotel at 15h the clerk said there wasnt any possibility of going to the spa as it was already oberbooked and a previous reservation was required. I was so disappointed for not having been warned of the necessity of making a reservation, having clearly said that I wanted a total relaxation weekend... that we didnt stay there. We asked for a refund and went elsewhere. My advise is to book ahead both spa and massages if you want to have that experience. Also notice that the Thermal Spa isnt available during cold season.
Modern, beautiful, chic and Very clear. Decoration is excellent, free parking and the bar is nice! The best thing was the restaurant, Very good food and chef cuisine. I was Really suprised and prices are ok for the food Quality and facilites offered.
This was a comfortable, 1-night stay. While others in our group had arranged for personal spa treatments, the hotel helped me arrange for much-needed waxing at a salon nearby. We appreciated the late check-out, which allowed us to explore the village of Monte Real before a relaxed breakfast of a great variety of fresh fruit, breads, meats, yogurt, etc. The room was clean and comfortable with all the amenities needed. We slept well and enjoyed the great water pressure in the shower here. WiFi was reliable. We would stay here again.
Palace Hotel Monte Real is a modern hotel with nice surroundings and very good amenities. Rooms are quiet, nicely furnished with everything a 4*sup should have. The restaurant is also an excellent experience. Overall highly reccommended
I usually have to travel across Portugal and chose a quiet and charmful location to overnight: Monte Real. Palace Monte Real is an outstading hotel to relax and enjoy an atmosphere of quietness and relax. Excellent service and respectful enviroment. It is located deep inside Portugal in a little village but only few minutes driving to wonderful beaches and splendid lanscapes; lots of places to visit if one wants to.
We stayed 4 nights in early August, family of four in two rooms, B&B. Excellent price through booking.com. This is a striking hotel in that the front is a historic building which seamlessly merges with a high quality modern extension to the rear. Monte Real itself is a small town (with limited restaurant and shopping) but accessible and close to other centres, such as Praia de Vieria. Good points - Bedrooms are furnished to a high standard, buffet breakfast is absolutely fine, parking is plentiful, grounds are very nice, pool is clean with lots of sunbeds, staff were very helpful, nice bar area with good cocktails. Hotel seemed popular with Portuguese holidaymakers. (Minor) Negative Points - there is a full height internal window between the bedroom and bathroom. There is a blind but not entirely effective...... not so good if you value your privacy in the bathroom! There is unnecessary and incessant "muzak" played through hidden speakers around the pool. Silence would be better, failing that a different choice of CD! Finally the tranquility can be shattered at times by F16 fighter jets practicing take off and landing from the nearby airforce base. They fly low and loud. Not withstanding the above we had a lovely stay and would recommend.
