Special days at Vidago Palace

Heather and I are now enjoying Porto after 3 really special days at Vidago Palace. The hotel is amazingly elegant, the setting beautiful and the old golf course scenic, enjoyable, yet quite challenging! The highlight was the 115-meter par 3 3rd, over a creek, all carry. 
Great recommendation.

I’m so pleased with the arrangement

We had a great time! Everyone and everything was perfect at Hotel Palacio Estoril
I’m actually so pleased with the arrangement that I’m considering repeating it next year at the same time of the year.

Covid precautions were in place which was very reassuring

We had a lovely stay at the Dona Filipa. We were upgraded to one of the refurbished rooms which was very clean and comfortable. Covid precautions were in place throughout the hotel which was very reassuring. The “buffet” breakfast was efficiently served and plentiful. We decided to go out from the hotel for dinner ... would recommend U&Co opposite the hotel and overlooking the sea.
We thoroughly enjoyed our golf on San Lorenzo ... one round had to be moved to the next day due to stormy weather but this was no problem at all. San Lorenzo was very quiet and it was good to play at our own pace.
All in all a first class experience at a very reasonable price ... a big thanks for organising. Would do it again.

Montado was affordable

Montado Golf Resort was great. We will go again next year but 4 nights instead of two.
The hotel staff was efficient and warm. And the cost was affordable. With so many people and 7 rooms, it is good to have lower prices.

Thank you for your excellence service!

Thank you for your excellence service! I had a good time in PDR and a save journey back. 
The hotel and the services are very good and the staff was very helpful. I made an upgrade to a seaview room for 40 Euro per night. First I had a room near the reception, it was very noisy (when people walked past the room and children played in the hallway...). They gave me without hesitation another room far away and on a quite place. The drinks in the restaurant are very expensive (a glass of wine 9.50 Euro). The food is ok. Also the breakfast was good. Overall its a good place to stay. The both golf courses are very nice!  
I would recommend not booking a room during the summer vacation (in this time its a kid hotel).

They took all restrictions seriously

We had a really good time at Quinta da Marinha Resort
The general impression is that the service was good, it was clean and they took all restrictions seriously but at the same time tried their best to give customers an as smooth as possible experience. Rooms was good, the pool was very clean but a bit cold. It was easy to book tee times. I played both Quinta da Marinha and Oitavos Dunes. Oitavos was a much nicer course, the day I played it was super windy (maybe windy more or less everyt day). The area gave possibilities for walks by the ocean.

Here in Switzerland, we could do a lot better (learning from Portugal)

We are now "unfortunately" back again.
Our vacation was great and we were able to experience a lot and get to know a new area, Porto and the Douro Valley.
The Hotel Palacio and the Marriott Praia del Rey have met our expectations in these years as well. The staff did all afford to bring normality to everything, especially breakfast was a challenge for everyone.
We felt very safe everywhere, also staff in the shops are very strict and in the restaurants social distancing was well respected.
Here in Switzerland, we could do a lot better (learning from Portugal), many here are simply no longer disciplined. Maybe we will come back in November.

Safety and hygiene procedures were well organized and appropriate

Dear Kelly, We have to thank you and Sara for your excellent assistance. The hotel Quinta da Marinha was great, as were the Golf courses. Outstanding services, well organized to handle the challenges posed by Covid 19. Perfect facilities. Oitavos is nice but way overpriced. The other three courses (Quinta da Marinha, Quinta do Peru and Penha Longa) were excellent value for money. Safety and hygiene procedures were well organized and appropriate.

Nous sommes heureusement bien rentrés

Nous sommes heureusement bien rentrés et depuis vendredi de nouvelles restrictions arrivent jour après jour.
Notre séjour au Palacio était parfait et c’est avec plaisir que nous avons retrouvé le charme de ces anciens et chaleureux établissements. Nous avons profité de faire 4 fois le parcours de golf d'Estoril de l’hôtel et en avons mesurés les difficultés dès le premier jour (pour une mise en route de l’année, c’était un peu dure !). 
L’attente a été longue chez Europcar et à la prise de la voiture, le personnel était peu aimable. C’est vrai que les clients sont parfois pénibles et le tournus des voitures impressionnant, alors ils sont pardonnés.
Un grand merci encore pour cette organisation.

We spent a long stay in the algarve in February/March

Algarve West and East.
As two years ago we spent a long stay in the Algarve in February/March. This time we have splited it up - 3 weeks Pestana Gramacho and 3 weeks Castro Marim
The organization of the accommodation and tee times was perfect. Many thanks to Kelly and the team. We appreciate the competence and kindness very much.
Pestana - the 5 courses we already have known have been in a very good condition. We enjoyed also the new club house at Silves. Very nice. 
Castro Marim - a new destination for us. The accommodation was great - a nice two bedroom villa very well equipped. Our favorite courses guadiana/grouse at castro marim. Additionally we also played Benamor/Quinta da Ria and Cima/Quinta do Vale and as a special highlight Monte Rey. We have enjoyed the different region algarve east with well-tended interesting courses. We will come back to portugal.
