Comfortable apartment, close to groceries and laundry. Free shuttle to Old Town Albufeire, although not much there except for a beautiful beach, very touristy. Hundreds of little tourist shops. Lots of pools at resort, one warm. Full kitchen, nice to be able to do our own cooking.

Played this golf course last Sunday. Had a relaxing morning but probably wouldn't return again. Realised it was a 9 hole par 3 course prior to visiting but some of the holes were just too short and simplistic to be challenging. 4 of the holes are under 100 yards. If you play regular golf and have a low to medium... More

The course is in very good shape. The greens are more than challenging. Service 100% regarding information, material and service at... More

I can't see on TripAdvisor an area for reviewing just the golf course. That is what I am doing. It may be only nine holes, and they aren't that long, but are they intimidating? In fact one of them is the most scary hole I have ever played, and I remembered it from the last time I played the course... More

So off I trot 9am tried 3 pools, sorry not cleaned yet will be at least 20 mins. All sorts of reasons ensued but I know well enough that all hotels can manage overnight... More

We stayed in a villa overlooking the whale pool. It is a beautiful scenic location with lovely pools and a fantastic golf course. The staff are all very friendly and the restaurant serves delicious food. Would highly recommend
