Pools & Sports

Monte Santo has six swimming pools – five outdoor including one set aside for children and an indoor heated pool, which seemed to be a huge hit with the smaller children during our recent visit. The main pool forms the hub of the resort and the terraces are spacious with shadier options available.

The multi-use sports court is used for football, basketball and tennis and there is a well-equipped fitness centre, sauna, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath.

Of course, Portugal is well known as a popular choice with golfers and there are an excellent choice of golf courses within easy reach of the resort.
