This is our 5th year returning for our annual golf break. In the past our stays have been first class but having read recent reviews we were concerned that perhaps standards were slipping. Far from it ! From Gonçalo and his golf team to Juan...More

The weather was fantastic. The course was not as well maintained as it could have been. But, the course layout was magnificent and in my opinion, one of the best we played on our trip. Just not in good order. Greens slow, fairways patchy. We...More

The layout was nice as you might expect. There are some massive elevation changes which makes clubbing very interesting, especially with a good blast of wind. It is very short though, with all the par 5's easily reached in 2 off the whites. Perhaps a...More

This course is very beautiful and my hubbie has fond memories of it. Today it disappointed. Greens are in poor condition. Fairways need grooming. Our buggy got very tired by the 15th hole which seemed to sum up the general lack of TLC. Such a...More
