Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa in Monchique, Algarve, Portugal

The 5-star MacDonald Monchique Resort is set in the secluded woods of the Western Algarve, the Serra de Monchique. With mountain views, spacious outdoor pool areas and a modern spa, the MacDonald Monchique Resort offer a peaceful, luxury escape for couples and families.

The large rooms are airy, light and take in the beautiful, wooded surroundings of the Monchique Mountains. There’s WiFi, air conditioning, a television and the rooms either come with a private patio or balcony. Each room is stocked with the high-end amenities you’d expect of a luxury, 5-star resort like the MacDonald Monchique.

We’ve mentioned the large pool areas, and they’re suitable for families (there’s a separate family pool area) and for those who just want to relax poolside. There are a variety of restaurants serving gourmet food, both in buffet style and a la carte, so you’ll always be full up of delicious Portuguese and international cuisine. With a choice of 2 bars, too, there’s plenty of cocktails and snacks floating around. By far the most attractive element of the MacDonald Monchique Resort is its extensive, modern spa. People come from far around to use the facilities. There are lots of treatments available.

All around the MacDonald Monchique Resort rolls the Serra de Monchique. Walking tours are arranged by the Monchique, and heading out on the 10 am walk is a wonderful way to experience the countryside. Or if you'd rather sit back and lay in the sun, take a trip to Alvor Beach. It takes around 20 minutes and Alvor Beach is arguably one of the finest beaches in the Western Algarve.

Please note that restaurant concepts are seasonal. For updated opening and opened restaurants and bars, please enquire with the Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa.
