The location is beautiful surrounded by the golf course. The grounds are well kept but I wasn't impressed by the Bobby Jones restaurant. Our villa was on the edge of the fairway and was surrounded by Pine trees which looked really nice but did block the sun for much of the day. The Birdie Lounge was good value for money..

A tranquil resort set in rolling countryside surrounded by beautifully manicured golf courses. It is placed on the most prestigious international golf course on the Playa do Golf. The leisure facilities include two super outdoor swimming pools and a heated indoor pool. There are pleasant walks amongst the links but a car is required to explore the riches of the...

Set in part of a golf course these individual self catering units are comfortable with every modern convenience. On site you have restaurants, shops, spa, swimming pools, gym and arranged activities. They even have a curtisy bus to take you 1KM to the beach.

We have stayed at this resort on 3 occasions and I would highly recommend for families with small children. It is a quiet area so it would not be great for teenagers. For the most part the staff are very friendly. The 2 bed apartments are lovely - friends of ours stayed in a one bed and it was quite...

Excellent facilities staff very personable and professional.everwhere clean neat and tidy. Despite warnings of refurbishments in progress this was not an issue Made mistake of not hiring a car as towns and Faro a fair distance away and taxis ain't cheap..but will be back for the great golf courses and the well equipped appartment.

Very nice resort with complete appartments and very friendly reception staff. If you like golf it is the ideal place to stay, and if you do not like golf there are many other possibilities. The restaurant at the resort is very good and reasonable priced.
