Have the hotel here at Holidaycheck booked and knew from the reviews about which to be. Were 12 days and only booked with breakfast included ( a lucky!) Size of the hotel you can see the photos see. Guest structure: many dutch and spanish, a few british, a few German audience. Wasn't a problem however to us. Were nearly only in hotels with very mixed guest nationalities. read hotel review

    As mentioned, we had only breakfast. Right on the first morning many us bad tempered guests and in the only dining room on. And then we saw the breakfast! I describe it briefly: Two types of tiny rolls Croissants White bread for toast A sort of cheese Two types of sausage Muesli Jams in these plastikportionsdingern On one day scrambled egg ( which after scrambled egg tasted) and boiled eggs At the other day fried egg with sausage and some sauce or whatever it was. The day' scrambled egg' and so on. The coffee from the automat is an experience! However no beautiful. Cappuccino from the automat is sunday After two, three days you get used to it. Whoever kaffeesatzlesen is, has its joy. Also the juice we tried. Knew not at all it juice returns, not after juice tastes. But there were also scrambled egg, which after scrambled egg tasted. The matter be locked; we had after four days no more desire on breakfast. Furthermore there was in the morning, so from 9:00 A. M. more often time lines, which I the quality now so not at all understand can. The staff constantly walked through the hall and cleared the tables from. A ' good morning respectively bom Dia ' was nobody to hear.

    The large (and only) advantage about this hotel is the almost directly at the beach. You go only across the street and then one is practically already in the beach and sea. Monte Gordo is a not too big place with many restaurants, snack bars and some of pub and bars. Mainly on the boulevard and on the side streets located. Smaller shops and boutiques are also sufficiently available. The journey time to the airport respectively to Faro is on the road about 1 hour. On the pay highway it is somewhat faster, but evenly also. The distance to the spanish border is about 15 minutes

    Our room on the 6th floor with a view of the sea was in terms of size okay. The furniture was not the newest, but ok and not damaged. Big balcony with plastikbestuhlung. Small tv with three German programs ( ZDF, RTL and Sat.1). You get a plastic card for into the room and for the electricity. The mini refrigerator is luckily even without the card and you can brought drinks for the whole day to keep cool. A cheek is the safe in the room! 17 €for 12 days plus 20€ deposit. But you get a key cylinder with key in the tresorloch resembling and then worn can. A joke! One of us brought additional verschließmöglichkeit made a better impression. Air conditioning is adjustable and 24 hours. Is programmable and after several try worked. A information booklet, which actually in every hotel to find, was missing completely. Only a sheet with telephone numbers and prices for the service, and the laundry was to find. The bathroom was quite large. With bath/shower. The furnishings not the newest, but it worked everything. Also here the cleanliness the housekeepers to be desired. All together the room was ok, the hotel but not and is not the standard of a four stars house.

    To the staff we can hardly say, as we which saw, but all staff made a rather absent impression. A smile of somebody, the in this hotel busy, we could the whole 12 days not discover. serviceroboter needs far future a similar impression make. As far as I with the check in and out can say, speaks the staff English. Complaints or additional service we didn't use. A larger problem was the cleaning of the rooms. Usually in the late afternoon so from 16, 17 hours. The time was for us however not so the problem. The state of the room however already! Quickly swept and brief coerced mopped, still quickly garbage bin emptied and that was all. On two twelve days even the floor in the room mopped! You believe it or not. However was nothing to side and under the bed it looked... Better not so exactly look at. A small small pile sand on the balcony the whole 12 days there! I had until then in a supposedly four star hotel also not yet seen. At least: daily change of towels! NA but it was a pleasure and the bed was made. The whole hotel it is missing simply at charm. And that has nothing to do with the size to do. In the entry into the lobby one sees lots of small partially lit nooks and corners. But in none plant or any other decoration. I believe a woman in the management would be a profit for the hotel. The hotel bar we only from the outside and that was already enough! A cafeteria makes a better impression on me. The bar of course without any decoration and was also hardly or not at all visited.

    Small area on the first floor with a view of the street. Small pool, little spaces for sunbeds. We didn't visit. Animation and there are many kids' club, we were however also not visited. The beach and the sea compensated for a lot and was the most important. You can walk for miles, if you want. Also is the beach wide and if one continues to go somewhat, is hardly still someone nearby. More to the place is it however very busy. Chairs and sunscreens are from the hotel not provided. At the beach you can rent for 10€ per day, if you want. Before the hotels and at the near the location beach is cleaned daily. There is a row of beach bars and pub where you very delicious and mostly normal prices food.

From Faro airport with mini bus to the hotel about 50 minutes on the n125 is an experience the road not required as well as the condition and this is a eu country simply a disgrace the tourist something endure must. Purchase in small supermarkets possible bars open price ok. Excursions to ayamonte Spain bicycle and ferry very nice. Otherwise booked travel to information folder ok.

The Lagedes hotels is very good and proximity to the beach. Quality of the food corresponds definitely not 4 stars. Breakfast either boiled egg or fried egg or scrambled egg. Evenings a sort of meat or a sort of fish. The service in the restaurant was made partly a very unmotivated impression. Meal times evenings from 19-21:30 o'clock. If you until 19:30 o'clock not in the restaurant was, you had to before the restaurant queue to get a table. Here waited than around 40 to 50 persons. Why one makes no two meal times? The corridor was in ... 11 days once vacuumed. Monte Gordo is a beautiful site with nice cafes and good for strolling. We can't recommend the hotel. read hotel review
