Positive Reviews

Beautiful Surroundings in an Excellent Location

The building itself is sophisticated and the rural area around the hotel is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. The large grounds at Vila Monte are well-manicured and the pool area is clean. It's the perfect base from which to explore the area and its culture.

Guest Rooms are Large and Spotless

The rooms are very large with lots of space to move around and store items and the level of cleanliness is superb. Guests reported that the beds are comfortable, amenities are plentiful, the air conditioning works perfectly and the bathrooms are big and luxurious.

Staff Provides Exceptional Service

Guests are greeted with a smile by friendly front-desk staff who are ready to answer any questions and help out in any way they can. The bar staff are also very friendly and interactive with guests and all staff work hard to rectify any problems that arise.

Negative Reviews

The Food is Bland with Little to Choose From

Although guests were under the impression they would be treated to fine cuisine, some reported that the meals were more like cafeteria food. Also reported was a lack of items to choose from, limited options for vegetarians and bland, poorly-prepared meals served in a dull canteen-like atmosphere.

Tired and Unkempt Guest Rooms

Guest rooms at Vila Monte are old-fashioned with furniture and decor that looks like it is from another era. Guests also reported dusty furnishings, tattered carpet, broken lamps, loud air conditioning units and rooms so small, you can barely move around.

The Hotel Is Far Away from Everything

Guests have reported that in order to really see and experience everything the area has to offer, a vehicle is needed because the hotel is remote and far away from most of the attractions guests want to see.
