We booked a golf break to Portugal with Your Golf Travel and we were thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the golf holiday from the booking right the way through to our time in Portugal itself.
We stayed at the Aroeira Golf Resort as part of a three night and unlimited golf offer. We almost couldn’t believe the price when we saw it on the YGT website...the value for money was out of this world. Our apartment was really nice and the management at the resort were more than happy to move us when we discovered our original apartment had no English TV channels. The housekeeper was very helpful and kept our accommodation clean throughout our stay.
As far as the golf courses go we all preferred the number one course. We thought it was in better condition and it has a clubhouse to enjoy a nice cold beer after playing. The course was stunning and it was easy to see why it has been selected to host the Portuguese Open in the past. The number two course badly needs a clubhouse of its own but as a course it is certainly up there with other top layouts in Portugal. One of the best things about these courses is the lack of other golfers. Nobody seems to know about it! When you book an golf break package with unlimited golf included you would expect to run into a few other players but we had the place to ourselves.
The pool area is great as well and served as a perfect place to relax after a round of golf in the sub. The other facilities on the Resort include a lovely restaurant and bar and a supermarket for those who want to cook for themselves.
All in all I loved Aroiera and can’t wait to get back, I recommend it to everyone embarking on a golf holiday in Portugal. Thank you Your Golf Travel for doing such a professional job and your colleges for organizing our trip.
