I was part of a group of eleven golfers staying here in September.
It is not a hotel, but a golf complex with privately owned villas that are let out and managed by the Pestana group. Our villas were of excellent quality, but we weren't aware that we needed to bring tea, coffee, soaps etc. The villas are also spread out over the complex and unless you have a car you are reliant on the transfer service (one man with one minibus; which is not enough).
There is no large hotel pool & bar to relax around after golf.
The staff are very helpful, especially the delightful Teresa who booked restaurants and taxis and sorted out our extra night accommodation after Ryanair cancelled our flights home.
Golf courses are fabulous, but busy - the busiest in the Algarve apparently. Unlimited golf, but they insist on charging again for a buggy if you want to go out for another nine holes (which was disappointing).
With only one restaurant on the complex you need to visit Carvoeiro, which is only a 5 minute taxi ride away and worth a visit.
Overall, a logistically challenging stay with great golf courses.More
