Penina Hotel and Golf hotel, it is one of finest place, in South of Portugal, for a perfect, week end or vacation.
The rooms are very comfortable, immaculately, clean. Room service, reminds me old days, in fashionable hotels,very professional.
Coffee shop, seating outside, on a sunny day, the service and the scenery , to beautiful gardens and golf course, it is amazing, and make us feel very relax, and delighted.
By far, the best hotel in the South of Portugal.
For golfers, you will find a fantastic course, with excellent greens, and the reception, is helpful, and very professional staff.

We have just had 4 wonderful days of golf at Penina. Everything about the trip was first class. We were met at the hotel and offered a glass of juice and quickly despatched to our room. We have stayed here before so took a pool side room which was comfortable and adequate for our stay. Really comfy bed and spotless bathroom just added to the experience.
Breakfast was, as you would expect, varied and really comprehensive. You are asked by the very efficient team whether you would like tea or coffee and then you can choose from the buffet. All the breakfast delights were here, cold cuts, cheese, eggs any style ( ask the waiters if you want a poached egg), cereals, fruit - the list goes on.
Then the golf. The Championship course was fantastic. In great condition with true quick greens. Note: If you are a 2 ball you will be paired with another 2 ball. It makes sense and we were lucky to play with 3 couples,1 Swedish, 1 Dutch and 1 Scottish. They were all excellent company. We were fortunate to have 4 days of magnificent weather ( we didn't see a cloud at all) and this only enhanced our holiday.
One thing though: The resort course. 9 very dry poor holes. We were leaving on the day we played it so it was not really an issue but after 3 rounds on the Championship course this was like a bad municipal course.

Overall I would recommend a golf trip here. Don't expect banging nightlife like the big Algarve tourist haunts, but if you do want great Portuguese food a 10 euro taxi will take you to Alvor.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the golf course and pool offer the best option

Visited Penina Hotel and Golf at end of February. Lets deal with the hotel first then the golf.As soon as we arrived till the day we left the staff could not have been more helpful and obliging.The breakfast was Buffet and covered all tastes.eggs cook fresh etc. The evening meal was also buffet and each day had a different theme.the choice was excellent. We did take an evening out at a resturant in the hills Solar Do Farelo see seperate report. One thing stood out one of our party had a birthday nobody told the staff yet the sent a cake and a bottle of Champane to the room , Now to the golf
Excellent course a challenge to all handicaps greens excellent fairway TLC but will be back later in the year Try and get early tee off's so you do not have 5 hr rounds
Try and get a room overlooking the course as this gets the afternoon sun and you have a balcony

Room Tip: Get one over looking the golf course

Dear Guest,

We were delighted to read your review, and to learn that our staff was friendly and efficient, taking care of your requirements.

Lovely food and amazing breakfast also contributed to an enjoyable holiday, and we certainly hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon.

Should you prefer a pool/golf facing room for your next visit, we recommend to reserve in advance, to ensure availability, as we have many requests for this type of accommodation.

With warm greetings from Penina,
Kind regards
Guest Relations

My husband and I booked a 3 day golf clinic with Jose Lourenco and had a great experience. Jose's lessons were clear, explaining the whys of everything so now we fully understand what to do, even if we can't always do it! Practice, practice, practice. Jose is unfailingly polite with a lovely sense of humour, we had a great time and have never enjoyed lessons more. I have played once in the week we have been back and what a difference! My short shots are arriving on the green in style, rather than tootling along the ground and hopefully getting there. All other shots have improved more than I could have hoped. Thank you Jose.
