    Nice property in an area we know (tho' we are not golfers).!

    • Stayed 1 night

    No milk in the room (tho' there was tea, coffee etc), but that is a very English thing, and tiny cups !!

    Helpful staff, massive beds, bath & separate shower. Half way between Isla Canela and Ayamonte so easy access to town or beach.

    Some areas in the hotel, such as the seating in the dining room could have been more clean. Cockroach found in bedroom was taken care off in a very efficient manner by a staff member. Hire car was dented while parked overnight, no cctv.

    The golf course is in excellent condition and is a really good test of golf. Most of the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Very good and quiet place. The room was great with a view over a green field. It was so quiet and relaxing... I slept all night :) Good space to chill out inside or outside near the pool. You need a car if you want to go to the beautiful beaches or eat in some of the great local fish restaurants nearby but it’s 5 minutes driving only. Very nice staff. The lady at the reception was super. Great breakfast. Great options for golfers (not my case - went there to relax a bit by the end of the day and sleep)

    Excellent golf hotel in upmarket resort of Isla Canela and within commuting distance of Faro airport
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Access to restaurant upstairs for those with mobility issues or push chairs is difficult - two sets of long stairs or need to use the kitchen service elevator. Breakfast room is prettily laid out but buffet layout in separate room does not work with frequent bottle necks. Hotel needs to buy proper spoons for yoghurts, fruits and cereals for guests and there is only one bread toaster that everyone ends up queuing in front of. Selection of cooked items was poor and not refreshed - eggs, sausage and bacon were all cold and unappealing. Breakfast hours on weekends need to be extended to accommodate guests. Coffee machine is poor quality for Spain and more staff need to be on duty during breakfast service.

    Excellent location in Ayamonte and within easy commuting distance of Faro airport. Traditional Spanish fascade with well maintained interiors and public areas. Wifi was good and pool area well stocked with sun loungers and towels available from reception. Evening meal options include reasonably priced tapas menu with extended hours of service. Hotel is located within the golf course and perfect for golfing breaks

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 11 nights

    We did not like the fact that they do not supply an iron or ironing board - when you bring two suitcases full of clothes they do tend to need ironing! Also didn't like the glass door to the bathroom with an inch gap around it, so you couldn't just see, you could hear too - eurgh! Strangely they provide a kettle with tea bags (although only 4 bags, one English Breakfast, the remainder fruit teas) but don't supply any coffee whatsoever or MILK!

    Lovely location, very quiet, pool empty most of the time (which we like). Breakfast was very good indeed. Only a 5 minute drive to a fabulous beach with restaurants, tiki bars etc. 5 minutes in the other direction was Ayamonte which was full of bars and restaurants and shops we felt very safe, despite the odd beggar!

    The hotel is between Ayamonte and Isla Christina and there's nothing else except this lovely hotel.

    A golf course hotel - rooms overlooking beautiful greenery. The room was quality, massive double bed, cotton sheets. Separate bath and shower cubicle, bidet and toilet. Beautiful glass double sink unit. Tea-making facilities and a radio/cd unit. two choices of menu - very adequate, reasonably-priced bar/restaurant on ground floor and near the pool and an upstairs a la carte restaurant, (not busy in May) at sensible prices.

Alrhough i understood from the staff and manager that this was an error, if i werethe manager, i would have offered free coffee and toast or a discount in the breakfast.

    The room was fantastic with a great bathroom and shower. Also the 'blackout curtains' really helped. The balcony was a big plus except the trees that were directly outside, but I suspect they are there to protect you from any stray golf balls from the course.
