Paul’s Review of Monchique Resort & Spa
JoanneVisited July 2019
The members of staff at Monchique are absolutely lovely and they made me, a solo traveller, feel very welcome and safe. It was my first ever holiday by myself and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The Fusion Fitness programme was very suited for me and just the right price. Health and Fitness Travel really went the extra mile with organising everything for me, from beginning to end. Thank you, guys! I really enjoyed my trip!
