The villas we stayed in are in top condition

Thank you for the perfect organization and for your nice welcome package we received at the hotel.
Hotel reservation, airport transfer, handover and collection of the rental clubs, everything worked out.
And yes, the 4 of us had a very pleasant stay.

Hotel Onyria Quinta da Marinha: the villas we stayed in are in top condition, housekeeping (every 3 days) very attentive, breakfast buffet varied and well filled until the end. Particularly noteworthy is the friendly service at the reception and during breakfast as well as the good-humored and helpful shuttle drivers (One even drove me to a pharmacy on the second to last day because I had caught a cold). Good WiFi reception throughout the resort.

Quinta da Marinha Golf: the staff at the golf reception was very supportive and flexible. It was no problem to book buggies or to postpone the tee time due to the weather. For us, it was a pleasure to play the course. The eight-minute tee time was (unlike feared) usually no problem. Only on Friday we had three four-man flights from England ahead of us, which were extremely slow, so that the following flights were jammed.

What one should know, the villas are not located directly at the hotel, but are about a 20 minute walk away. The shuttle service works, but is sometimes associated with waiting times. There is no dishwasher in the villas, this could be a problem if the villas are completely occupied. We had very good experiences in the restaurant "O Carloto", Cascais.
Many greetings from Cologne

The arrangements were excellent

We had a great stay at The Village Praia d'el Rey and the arrangements were excellent on your end. I'd be happy to continue receiving info from you and we are potentially planning a return next year.

On behalf the entire group I can honestly say the whole trip was excellent.

On behalf the entire group I can honestly say the whole trip was excellent.

The Hotel Sesimbra Spa, the room, facilities, service and location were top class.
Aroeira courses were good but presentation and condition were a bit disappointing. It was hard to get a coffee or a beer that day at Aroeira Challenge Clubhouse. 
Quinta do Peru was exceptional and I would prefer to play there every day.

The town of Sesimbra was a real surprise with the fantastic clean beach, excellent restaurants and bars with reasonable prices.

I would hope to return again.

Many thanks for all of your help with the trip.

 

Silvia B., Germany, May 2022

Very satisfied with the friendly and courteous service

3 bedroom apartment at The Village Praia d'el Rey – Location was ok, really clean.
We always ate breakfast and dinner in the clubhouse and were very satisfied with the friendly and courteous service.

We liked West Cliffs best. Great course and extremely challenging with the wind! We also liked the clubhouse very much. Royal Obidos was nice, but too much “Resort”.... and the Clubhouse a bit much too cool.

Rental car - Everything is ok here too. Had an almost new vehicle... and the handover/return went smoothly.

All you arranged for us was perfect.

All you arranged for us was perfect. The Golf Clubs came just in time and were in good conditions. We enjoyed playing San Lorenzo and Pinheiros Altos; The Tees and the fairways at Penina need water. After changing the Hotel-room we got a wonderfull renovated room with pool- view at Hotel Penina. So we enjoyed our Holiday in Portugal. Thank you for all arrangements.

Abdellah J., Morocco, May 2022

We decided to stay longer.

We decided to stay longer.
We had a very nice stay. The Nau Morgado Golf & Country Club services, the courses of Alamos and Morgado are excellent.
We will highly recommend your services to our friends.

Dave W., United Kingdom, May 2022

We had a really excellent time

Many thanks for your message, and for all your work in coordinating our trip. We had a really excellent time. The Hotel Palacio Estoril is fabulous, the Estoril golf course met our needs perfectly, and all our transfers and club hire worked very smoothly. The area around the hotel has lots of good restaurants and bars, so we were very well catered for each evening.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we would be keen to do something similar (or even exactly the same) next year.

Thank you and your team for organizing this wonderful holiday

Eva, I would like to thank you and your team for organizing this wonderful holiday. There are a few things that I would like to comment about. One: the lodging facilities, I would rate Penha Longa #1 and 5 star. I spent one additional night at the Oitavos which was also excellent 5 star. The Troia Lagos apartments were very good as were the apartments at Praia Del Rey. But the bed was too hard At Praia d'el Rey. The sister larger hotel to Lagos in Troia which my GPS took us to first is still closed. 

The Mara restaurant in Praia d'el Rey also remains closed, so the clubhouse there is the only breakfast option.
Speaking of breakfast Pehna Longa and Oitavos was definitely way better than the other two. Praia was only average. Troia did a good job. Oitavos rivalled Penha Longa.

Now the golf:
West Cliffs was spectacularly beautiful and challenging. Massive elevation changes. Definitely the best and would play again many times but take a buggy! Which we did and bring lots of balls. Very easy to lose them there. We changed our tee times and played it twice.
Praia del Rey was also very good but played it on a very windy day so can’t judge it fairly. It’s a mix of links and parkland holes.
Oitavos Dunes we caught on a windy day too and so judging it fairly is hard. Great links design and in excellent condition. I would play it again.
Penha Longa Atlantic & Penha Longa Mosteiro is parkland and also very good especially the championship course. They are in the midst of some bunker refurbishment on a few holes. Once that is done it will be 5 star again.
Troia is a good course but not as good as the others. Less well maintained. No beverage cart. No water to drink on course and no on-course toilets. 
The whole Troia area is still recovering from the COVID disruption.

The building and construction going on around West Cliffs is remarkable. Will not recognize it probably when we come back.
Finally, the Melia hotel Lisbon Airport was excellent for catching an early morning flight. We walked that morning to terminal and made car drop off day before easy and allowed us to take the train into city centre night before departure to visit. Very convenient and efficient.

Eva, thanks for setting it all up.
