10/10 Exceptional

An exceptional hotel and spa
An amazing hotel in an incredible location. The facilities, particularly the spa, are superb and the staff make the whole stay very special. The surrounding countryside is wonderful for walking and there are number of lovely villages and restaurants within walking or short cab distance. A superb place that doesn't really feel like any other hotel we'd been to.

Mountain Air in Monchique
We have been coming to Monchique for almost forty years and this is by far the best accommodation available. This is a beautiful resort with a top quality spa, comfortable beds and a very hospitable staff. The views from the terrace are amazing and there are many restaurants close by. We did day trips to Portimao which is only twenty minutes away. The mountain air and the piri piri chicken at O Castelo are both worthwhile.

Relaxing in the mountains
Very relaxing. Staff were very friendly. Only downside was that they did not allow late check out

8/10 Very good

A welcoming tranquil place , the kids club was a bit depressing and could do with brightening up and also choice of room service menu wasn’t great especially considering it’s family friendly so more likely for people to stay in…
