Hotel staff not willing to share local knowledge with us that are not part of the golf set.

"Relaxing, quiet and all that you need on a holiday"
A lovely experience, visited 23-26 Dec with 2 kids. Lovely staff , kids enjoyed overall
Almacil has recently started using Uber which we found very helpful as not driving.
You need either to hire or order a cab in case you want to go around I.e have a meal outside.
Play area and kids club available although we did not use the kids club. Two session per child per day - supervised.
Coriander Indian Restaurant does deliver if case you fancy a curry.
Christmas Day was fun with Ruil dressed up as Shanta and entertaining kids in the breakfast lounge.
Overall a happy trip - thank you team Monta de Quinta

We have visited this hotel on four previous occasions. It really suits us, family of five with three boys(18, 16 & 11). The pool is great, rooms great, but the selling point for us is the staff. The are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Praia do Ancao beach is a short walk away, but you do need to have a car to get to most of the other surrounding beach areas of Val do Lobo, Quinta Da Logo etc. Access to restaurants and other amenities in Almancil and further away in Loule would also require a car. Overall, a good location, scenic and picturesque, with fantastic views of Ria Formosa and the sea. A very quiet hotel making for an enjoyable, pleasant family holiday.

We had a one bedroom spacious apartment which was very well appointed, immaculately clean and very comfortable. The thing that made our experience so pleasurable was the staff who could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. We will certainly be returning and friends are already looking at this option for golfing holidays in the future.
The food in the restaurant is very good and the patio overlooks some inland water which has the most magical array of birds and it looked like work was being done to ensure everyone can enjoy this extra bonus in the future.
Of course, it is only a two minute walk to the beach and ten minutes drive to the golf courses so everything that you could want is on hand.
The cocktails are not bad too!!

The hotel is not too far from Faro airport, and was centrally located for access to the places that we needed to visit. The Hotel was very clean and provided comfortable sleeping arrangements and an excellent breakfast. The staff are very pleasant and anxious to help in any way possible. The evening meal that we had there was excellent, and the location is quiet with some shopping facilities nearby.

Couldn't be in a better position. In the middle of the Quinta do Lago triangle of golf courses. Great value for money, friendly staff and a real relaxed atmosphere.

Just 15 minutes from the airport in Faro, the small town of Almancil is typical of the Algarve and known for its local pottery. However, Almancil is best known for being close to the top-end resorts Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, which offer luxury accommodation, top-notch food, and excellent golf.
