One year has passed and so far, nearly 50,000 guests have trusted Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa with their vacations!

From the start we wanted to be different. A different kind of Algarve, a healthier and more peaceful holiday destination. A place where your vacations are not spent at noisy and busy streets with clubs and bars that disturb your sleep. A true getaway to simply forget about your daily stresses and enjoy the best of what Portugal has to offer.

But don’t get us wrong. Here you’ll only fall asleep if you want to. For those that are always up for an adventure and want to get their heart pumping, we offer a wide range of activities.
We believe that vacations are better spent doing something both active and relaxing.
Sports lower your stress levels and increase endorphin levels, literally making you feel happier. You try a cross training session, Pilates, Zumba, nature walks and many more activities at the Resort, completely free of charge!

And if you want to go to the beach, our Beach Express shuttle will take you there in less than 20mins. Hassle-free so that you can fully enjoy your time in the sun. And not to just any beach, Alvor is considered one of the gems in the Algarve.

We believe that we are more than just a hotel in the most beautiful surroundings of the Serra de Monchique with an ocean view like no other, we’re a place where you love to stay and want to come back to.

Our Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa is a pretty special place. If you had the pleasure to come and visit you already know how its location, concept and people make it so. The breath-taking views are one of the reasons why our guests choose us, but there is more to it.

There’s hard work. Happiness is a state of mind, and sometimes it’s not easy to achieve. But our hard-working staff are always ready to help you have the most incredible time at the Resort. That’s why it feels so good when our service is recognized, even more so by our guests.

This month we celebrate our first year and it is with great pride and joy that we announce a 2017 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence.

So, thank you for trusting us with your time, and keep sharing your experiences online with #MacdonaldMonchique
