One of the things that stuck me most about Vilar do Golf was that it was a fantastic setting, beautifully kept and as luxurious as a hotel, but you retained your privacy and independence. I just landed for a few days with family, but could not get over the standard of excellence and genuine kindness of the staff and the...

As Diamond Club members, this is one of the locations that we have made a point of coming back to, following a previous stay. It really is a fantastic complex, with large, open-plan accommodation units which are very clean and well appointed. The pool/leisure complex is very large and yet relaxing. At this time of the year (End of March)...

This is a great centre for playing golf on the Algarve situated with two golf courses sharing the same clubhouse. The accommodation is just magic with the staff making it feel like home, a great base for the keen golfer. The site is also situated about twenty minutes from the airport and within easy reach of the coast.
