Highly recommend- very clean, friendly helpful staff.

8/10 Very good

Hotel is nice and modern. Jr. suite was large only issue was the shower has like a half door and water went all over the floor after every use. We possibly didn’t use it right but I think we did. Breakfast had variety and was delicious. We only ate lunch in the hotel once it was ok but kinda pricey tons of other restaurants close by and more affordable. It’s about a 5-7 minute walk to the beach and it’s very safe. We stayed 8 nights and had a great time. Lots of other towns close by to visit also.

Good but could be better.
Very nice hotel, clean , great location. The downside are the confusion at breakfast with the tweezers to use for taking items and not available jacuzzi because of covid when in the pool is ok.

Great hotel, comfortable, excellent stay
The Prime Energize is my number one choice for Monte Gordo. No disrespect to the area, but this hotel is far superior to most of the other hotels in Monte Gordo. Very good restaurant and spa.
