Very clean and tidy. Quiet at night. Good food, though there was not always as much choice on some days as others. Great facilities, convenient for all local activities. So why not a 5-star rating? It seemed to take an age to check in at reception and the bar/restaurant staff could have been a bit more friendly. Otherwise, great value and definitely worth a return visit!

The Vasco da Gama is a long established, family owned hotel. It was the first hotel to open in Monte Gordo and, although the decor reflects this fact, the hotel is comfortable with a good atmosphere. The food is good and the standard of service is excellent; delivered in a friendly manner.

It attracts guests of all ages, but is better suited to a older clientele. We have stayed in the Vasco da Gama on numerous occasions and have stopped being surprised at the number of guests, like us, who return time after time. As one of the owners remarked "This is not a hotel; its a family".

We stayed in sea view room on 5th floor. The view was amazing, all the beach and pools on display. We had balcony with sun beds and table and chairs. The best rooms for sea views are 5th floor with open top balcony. Breakfast was fantastic, such a choice from full English to all sorts of continental foods. Very friendly staff, would recommend to everyone.

This hotel is about location. Right on the fantastic beach of Monte Gordo. Well worth the extra for a superior sea view. The room was spacious and clean with a balcony to enjoy the views. The hotel in general would benefit from a facelift but all in all a pleasant stay. The staff were all helpful and the food was plentiful and very nice.

Clean, tidy in all areas. Room cleaned and bedding changed every day. Very friendly accommodating staff. Had breakfast only but with excellent choices of fresh hot and cold dishes. Pool areas and sunbed facilities were good. Directly on the beach and our room was overlooking the beach on the fourth floor, could not have been better. Hotel a little cosmetically tired in some areas but did not affect the ambiance of the hotel. A good mixture of Dutch and British guests with mixed age groups but majority middle age plus.

Excellent Garden Suite, well equipped with chairs for outside and sunlounger/parasol. Only drawback, the one we had had only one toilet/bathroom, some had two. Good size bedrooms. Cleaners pleasant friendly and thorough.
Very good swimming pool - nice length for proper swimming.
Really good breakfast, and served from 7am. Staff friendly and helpful.

This hotel is very welcoming, it has a relaxed, cozy feel about it. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. On my last stay there, I was lucky enough to be given a room on the fifth floor. This was a good sized double room, clean, with all the amenities you would expect. The surprise was the spacious and totally private terrace. It was set in the roof of the hotel and afforded wonderful panoramic views of the sea and expansive beach. It was large enough to have 2 sun loungers, table and 2 chairs. This really made my stay so much more enjoyable. This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. The general maintenance of the hotel is very good, both inside and around the pool. There were plenty of sun loungers both around the pool and in the large gardens. They have a large dining room which opens for breakfast at 07.00 am which means there is no congestion or queues. There is a good menu and plenty of choice every day. The food is replaced at the buffet at timely intervals and it is always served at the right temperture.
Overall I am always very satisfied with my stay at the Vasco De Gama and hope to return there later on this year.
