We recently spent a week at VP for a work conference. What a beautiful location. The service was amazing. The housekeeping staff did an incredible job of our rooms twice a day. We arrived on Sunday and left on Friday. Sundays you are limited to which restaurants are open. They also have a beach club that a shuttle will take you there. The beach club however is also closed on both Sundays and Mondays so we didn't get to experience it as we didn't have time the rest of the week. Given the tourist location that it is, it would have been nice to see it open both days and even earlier as the other days it does open but not until 11am. I guess we are just use to getting up early.
One suggestion I would make is upgrading the gym facility. The gym is limited to a few free weights with odd sizes as well. For example, they have a lot of 2kg weights and a couple 6kg but nothing in between. The gym could also use a television as it becomes quite boring just running on a treadmill that doesn't even have a view to outside. They have a clock radio as their music which didn't even have enough volume to hear over the sound of the equipment.

My son and I have just spent a fourth consecutive annual visit to Villa Padierna Palace, which was probably the best as the hotel clearly strives to improve from an already high start point. Our stay was dominated as always by our obsession with golf on the two of the three available courses, Flamingos which is a good holiday course, and Alferini which is amongst the very best ( not for the high handicapper ! ) tests of golf in Europe.
The hotel serves a fantastic breakfast with a wide variety of fruit, berries , cold continental , cooked traditional , and will pretty much prepare you anything you’d like. That said I was very disappointed one morning to find the waiting staff particularly unaccommodating around the fact we were late for our tee time. I was asked not to take two bread rolls from the breakfast room as it wasn’t allowed, I remarked that I would starve on the course unless the food buggy was about, and said I didn’t have time for breakfast. The rolls went straight , and unceremoniously into the bin , right in front of me. I felt like been scolded for shop lifting!
This hasn’t dented my adoration for the hotel and it’s faculties , the spa, the pool, the dining , the attentive and extremely friendly staff ( if you take out the bread saver ). The guys in the pro shop are always helpful and make sure you have plenty of time around you on the course, I can’t remember waiting on one shot , and we only let one chap on his own through as he had a really fast buggy!
Go and indulge yourselves , it’s great.

We went to Villa Padierna to meet our friends. Finally we had a lunch in the Hotel’s beach club (view minutes drive). Nice place with great service. We had octopus and sea bass carpaccio and lobster risotto. It was really good.

Very beautiful area and nice hotel. We only had a late lunch where I had a beef baguette which was very tasteful. The view over the golf course was magical. It seemed like a very beautiful hotel which I would love to return to. baguette which was very tasteful. The view over the golf course was magical.

I have been very lucky to have stayed and played golf in some of the most luxurious destinations in the world, however this must be one of the best I have ever experienced. From the more than helpful staff through to the amazing golf courses that are more than a challenge to any golfer. The hotel and spa is very spacious with a very warm feel due to the friendly staff and luxurious decor, the spa is far the best I have seen and must be seen to believe how amazing it really is, my wife and mother said the treatments again were the best they have had. The golf courses were just incredible I cannot choose which is my favourite, the condition and layout of the courses makes them the best courses to play in Spain. I would also say they are in my top 5 course ever to have played. If you ever have the opportunity to stay and play at this 5 star resort then you are very lucky, it is definitely the best in Spain. Thanks Villa Padierna Palace Hotel for making it so very special.
