Agréable et nouveau

Hôtel Sesimbra & Spa
Par rapport aux séjours précédents, je n’ai pas grand-chose à ajouter. Le choix au petit déjeuner a été légèrement réduit. Un distributeur de confiture très difficile à utiliser a été installé. Le jour libre, nous avons fait une excursion en bateau le long de la côte qui a ravi tout le monde. Je ne peux que recommander.

Golf Aroeira
Le parcours II (Challenge) utilise maintenant la cafeteria de la piscine comme secrétariat et buvette. C’est nettement plus agréable que l’ancienne baraque.

Palacio is a part of us

I'm glad to tell you that our holiday went really well, as always!

We managed to play seven rounds, even though a few times it was a little bit rainy. We have played the Estoril golf club so many times that we know already it by heart. So it is convenient to elder players like us.
In ten days there were of course some rainy days but there are always something interesting to do in Estoril, Cascais or Lisbon.

Also the Hotel Palacio is very familiar and we really like the atmosphere, personell and the old palace type building. And we like the story of James Bond movie making there OHMSS. We used to discuss the film with the doorman Jose but now we heard that he has retired. He was a nice person by the door and always very helpful and friendly. But this time we had interesting discussions with another Jose, Jose Diogo. He was actually in the film with a special part as loyal hotel concierge in 1969. Also participating the 50 year's jubileum in 2019 at hotel Palacio.
I unfortunately noticed after arrival that my suitcase had gone broken: the locking system was jammed, and I couldn't open my suitcase. But after contacting the reception I got immediate help of two persons. Anyway, they couldn't manage to open the suitcase, so after asking me they opened it violently.
So I bought a new one from Cascais shop. I asked the front desk if the management could write and undersign what happened so maybe I could use it for insurance purposes or Finnair. And they really did write a certificate or proof! Now I am waiting on an answer from them but Palacio did their part quickly and friendly!
Especialy I like the breakfast at Palacio. I could spend there a few hours, one can choose whatever one likes: healthy, heavy, quick, tasty... Personaly the best things are fruits, oats, yoghurt, cheeses and the good coffee. The dining at the hotel has become better, I'm sure. We ate three times and we were very pleased. And the menu looked more attractive, easy and tasty with quick service.

We walked three times to Cascais and enjoyed the seaside. We went to a very good fish restaurant where we had lunch it was really good and we got a really good taste memory to remember.

The golf was great, especially Morgado and Salgados

Thank you so much for everything. Generally we had a really nice vacation and we are already planning for next year.
The golf was great, especially Morgado and Salgados.
The hotel Nau São Rafael Atlantico was also very nice and we particularly liked the breakfast menu. The design of the rooms and the location was nice. Only critique that compared to other hotels some staff members there could have been friendlier.
Thank you so much again for your help and I’m looking forward to next year!

L'hôtel et le service a été impeccable

Je tenais à vous remercier ainsi que mes amis pour la parfaite organisation de notre séjour à Marriott Praia d'el Rey.
L'hôtel et le service a été impeccable ainsi que les magnifiques parcours que nous avons joué (Royal Óbidos, West Cliffs et Praia d'el Rey). À tel point que nous reviendrons sûrement soit au printemps ou à l'automne . Je ne manquerai pas de vous contacter.

Good price/performance

Thats very nice, that you ask about our experience of our travel with you, the hotels, the golf courses and so one.

Hotel Tivoli Marina: Very good Hotel for Golfers. Geographical location near the restaurants very ideal. Sight over the sea super! Room generously and very proper, Staff very very pleasent and helpful. Breakfast exemplary and very good.

Hotel Anantara: A little higher level, than the Tivoli Marina. Room generously and also very proper. Staff extremly friendly and helpfulness. Location a little far from the restaurants, but very quiet hotel. Transfers with the shuttle excellent and very punctual. Breakfast also exemplary and very good. Victoria restaurant for dinner good, but a little impersonal and cool.

Golf courses (Pinhal, Millennium, Victoria & Old course): Very neat. Good organisation. A little too croudy.

Portugal Golf Experience: Very good and very personal service from you,

Eva! I am very happy about the execution of our travel
to Vilamoura. Good price/performance!

Many thanks again and the best wishes

You really helped us gain in confidence and enjoy the game

Daniel : thanks again for the great lessons. You really helped us gain in confidence and enjoy the game. After you left, we did 3 times the 9 holes of the blue course. I won’t say we crushed the scores, but we kept the pace and did some decent holes. Consistency is still a challenge ;)

Perfekte Organisation

Hotel Marriott Praia d'el Rey ist fünf Sterne wert ; Lage , Pflege , Service , Küche , ShuttleService ,

Sonderlob an den guestservice, und hier besonders Michael , Luis , Tomas. Sehr angenehmer Shuttle Airport - Hotel durch Rui , die Rückfahrt zum Airport top(!) mit einem charmanten, ecxellenten und sehr gebildeten Paulo Tavares, muito obrigado auch von unseren Damen !

Die Golfplätze ( Praia d’el Rey, Royal Obidos & West Cliffs) einer schöner als der andere, top ist Westcliff von A bis Z : Lage und Design wunderschön , sehr sportlich , toll !! Da konnten wir auch den für Einheimische ungewöhnlich frühen Küstennebel, der üblicherweise erst Mitte / Ende November auftritt, verwinden. Leider sind trotz unserer und Ihrer Bemühungen die beiden wg. Erkrankung nicht gespielten Greenfee nicht erstattet worden .

Nochmals herzlichen Dank , Frau Rebello, , insbes. für Ihre perfekte Organisation ;
herzliche Grüße an Herrn Grimm (auch von Fam. Dr.Z.)

We really appreciated your kind arrangement and prompt responses

We had a lovely golf holiday at The Village Praia d'el Rey.
Due to your personal and honest recommendation, we were very pleased that we changed our apartment to ‘By the Ocean’. The apartment was simply great - very spacious, clean and modern.
We enjoyed all the three courses (Praia d'el Rey, Bom Sucesso and Royal Obidos). It was very foggy at Bom Sucesso but luckily we managed to start with only a little delay and the fog got cleared afterwards.
Airport transfers were great, and the driver Paulo kindly stopped at a local supermarket for us, waited for us during our check-in and helped us carrying our luggage as well (all no extra charge. We gave him a bit of tip of course).
The check-in was smooth and shuttle service on Call worked well.
The safety box in the apartment did not work as a battery was missing. Also, we had a technical question on TV (we wanted to connect an iPhone with TV). We told these at the reception on the second day, they arranged a technical support staff, he came quickly and sorted them out, which was great.
Although there were a few minor issues with the golf shuttle which was not always on time, overall, we found the resort very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Portugal.

Last but not least we really appreciated your kind arrangement and prompt responses in our correspondences.

Veli-Matti U., Finland, October 2022

Everything was as planned

Back in Finland! Thanks for the arragements for our holiday. Everything was as planned. Drivers were always in time (mostly even beforehand). Hotel (Aroeira Lisbon Hotel) is nice, and their kitchen is fabulous. That feedback I already told in the restaurant.

Near AroeiraLisbon Hotel there is not much to do - but for golfers that is most of the time ok. Both golf courses (Aroeira Pines Classic and Aroeira Challenge) were also nice and roundtimes suitable. Weather was a bit rainy half of the week - but
sunshine is a thing which can never be ordered beforehand. We shall keep in touch some other time (and other golftrip).
