Aulis, Finland, December 2022

Great hotel, probably the 4th visit here

Dona Filipa:
Great hotel, probably the 4th visit here, everything works. The breakfast is very good and the dinner was also very good. The room was spacious, although there was no heat from the air conditioner, but it was not freezing.

Pestana Dom Joao II:
A solid hotel where everything works. Good breakfast and excellent value for money. 

The golf courses:
They are all familiar and good. San Lorenzo is my personal favorite, restaurant is Ok. Quinta Do Lago courses are great, restaurants is good. My husband liked Pinheiros Altos, Sea Bass in golf-restaurant is very good. Vale Da Pinta is also a nice course for club players and restaurant is good.

Lagos was really good

Our stay in Lagos was really good. The position of the hotel Marina Club in Lagos is perfect. Only 5 minutes to the restaurants, the view to the marina and less than 10 minutes to reach the Palamares golf course.
I think its possible that we book next year this location again.

The Best

Our stay at Vale do Lobo was very pleasant, the golf services were very efficient and very well organised.
The appartment was very well equipped and pleasant, but very poorly soundproofed.
I was surprised by the shuttle staff. No one offered to help us, we had to manage alone with our luggage.

West Cliffs was my favorite

I had a great time staying at the Praia D'el Rey resort. The Village was a great place to stay. The apartment was spacious, well-appointed, and felt very safe. I was easily able to walk to the golf shop, restaurants, and the hotel. Housekeeping was great.
I only ate at the Clubhouse Restaurant and it was very good - both the service and the food.  The Oceanico bar at the hotel was a great place to watch soccer (futbol) and had an exceptional view of the ocean.
As for the golf, West Cliffs was my favorite but I also enjoyed Praia D'el Rey.  However, Praia D'el Rey was very wet which made it less enjoyable to play. I know the area received a lot of rain in the previous weeks but I would have expected the course to drain a little better.

Thanks again for looking after me and putting up with my constant questions about my golf clubs. You and the rest of the staff did a great job making me feel welcome.

Kind and Helpful

The hotel
The Nau Morgado golf Hotel is pleasant, tidy, clean and with its surroundings it offers a pleasant stay, especially wonderful are sandy beaches.
The staff and their attitude towards the guests is beyond reproach, and the choice of food is also good and of high quality.

Golf
Salgado and Morgado golf courses are nicely arranged and pleasant to play. The staff and their attitude are professional and friendly.

Rental Clubs
The equipment is well maintained, of reasonable quality, and the delivery is punctual. A very important service for golfers from remote destinations!

Perfect

We had a wonderful trip. The hotel Dona Filipa was fab, breakfast was so good and the staff were super friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Both golf courses were excellent.  We had high expectation of San Lorenzo given its rating but were still impressed with the condition for mid-November.  On Pinheros Altos, we had no expectation on this course but were really impressed with how playable it was, lots of different holes but the course, again, was in a great condition.  We would definitely look to play both of these again next time we travel.

The airport transfer was perfect, signage was clear and the bus/ car was very clean – no complaints there whatsoever

I guess the only negatives (which you cannot help) is that we found the area to be quite expensive, particularly the bars and restaurants down next the Dona Felipa – more expensive than other parts of the Algarve.  And not having a shop/ supermarket nearby (walking distance) was a bit inconvenient.  But these are things you can’t do anything about.

True Beauty

Marina Club Lagos: The location is great it is just a minute walk over the bridge to the old town

The food is very good, good choice of products and friendly service also the restaurant is a good option for dinner  
The housekeeping is amazingly every day and has an excellent service
But is has a bad Internet connection

Room allocated: Last time we were at the Boavista resort - the standard of the accommodation is better to a much better price.

Golf Courses: We like to play all of the courses Palmares/Boavista/Espiche. All in very good condition.
Palmares with different beautiful views and all of it very reserved, means sometimes a little bit slow.

Beau

Hôtel Pestana Porto Santo
Le plus de cet hôtel sont les chambres spacieuses et l’accès à la plage. Je qualifierais par contre le buffet du soir au restaurant de moyen en ce qui concerne la qualité. Le choix est large. Dans les chambres j’ai à nouveau regretté l’absence de chevalet pour poser la valise et la prise électrique unique au chevet du lit.

Golf de Porto Santo
Etant malade (bronchite) je n’ai pas joué ce golf mais mes amis l’ont trouvé magnifique. L’avantage de l’île et qu’il y a moins de nuages qu’à Madère.

Tout simplement génial

Hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro
Charme tout britannique. Manque un chevalet pour y poser la valise. J’y ai dîné deux fois les avec une nettement meilleure impression la deuxième fois. Sur la base Gault et Millau je donnerais 13 points. Détail : chaque fois que l’on bouge sa chaise un crissement désagréable se fait entendre. Il faudrait mettre des patins en feutre sous les pieds des chaises.
Dans la chambre une seule prise électrique au chevet du lit, ce qui est insuffisant.

Golf Palheiro
Parcours magnifique mais difficile offrant une vue superbe sur l’Atlantique. Les nombreuses montées et descentes plaident pour l’utilisation d’une voiturette. Le practice est escarpé.

Golf Santo Serra
Une splendeur que ce parcours largement ouvert sur l’Atlantique. Bien que construit sur une colline les fairways sont larges.

La vue sur l’océan splendide

Hotel Marriott Praia del Rey
Cet hôtel est de qualité. Les chambres sont grandes, la vue sur l’océan splendide. Nous avons mangé dans les 2 restaurants, celui à la carte est plus raffiné. L’autre, où un buffet est proposé, permet de satisfaire tous les goûts mais il est très bruyant. Pour varier il faut sortir et prendre un taxi pour Peniche.

Golf West Cliff
La réception n’était pas la meilleure. Si vous envisagez d’apporter votre télémètre ne le faites pas car les drapeaux n’ont pas de réflecteurs. Les 9 derniers trous sont variés et splendides. Il y a parfois plus d’une centaine de mètres entre les trous.

Golf Praia del Rey
Bien que le trou 11 longe l’hôtel il faut prendre une navette pour prendre le départ de ce golf. En effet la distance à pied avec un sac de golf, depuis l’hôtel, est trop grande. Les trous qui longent l’océan sont superbes.
