Boasting a superb setting in the exclusive Quinta do Lago estate, which overlooks the stunning tidal estuary of the Ria Formosa, Hotel Quinta do Lago – a member of the “Leading Hotels of the World“ – is an ideal choice for golfers looking to enjoy the life of luxury and some of Portugal’s very best golf courses.

Set in the heart of golfing country in the Algarve, Hotel Quinta do Lago offers access to not just the three championship Quinta do Lago layouts, the North, South and Laranjal, but to the two stunning layouts at Vale do Lobo and arguably Portugal’s finest course, San Lorenzo, as well.

While easy access to the Algarve’s finest courses – the longest transfer to any of the above golf courses is the less than taxing 15 minute drive to Vale do Lobo – is reason enough to make Hotel Quinta do Lago your residence of choice on your next Algarve Golf Holiday, there is enough on offer in and around the hotel to ensure your time away from the fairways will be as relaxed or fun filled as you wish.


Thanks to an ideal location, the Hotel Quinta do Lago offers convenience to golfers looking to play the very best the Algarve can offer.

Rooms and Suites – there are 121 in total – are nicely decorated, supremely well equipped and offer amazing panoramic views of the Ria Formosa, the golf courses and the nearby beach.

Access to the beach couldn’t be easier thanks to the wooden bridge that enables guests to simply stroll down towards the ocean at their leisure. Along the way you can enjoy bird watching and the natural flora of the Lagoon  and once you arrive at the Quinta do Lago Beach, you are guaranteed relaxation; no wrestling for sun loungers and space here! One of most exclusive beaches in the Algarve, this gloriously private stretch of sand boasts plenty of towels, lounge chairs and beach umbrellas to go around and with water and fresh fruit on hand throughout the day; you can’t fail to feel refreshed on your way back to the main resort.


Take a stroll down the wooden bridge for a relaxing day on the beach or a special seafood experience at Gigi’s Restaurant.

If the urge to explore strikes, other nearby beaches such as the Ancão, Vale do Garrão and the Vale do Lobo beach are within easy reach of the hotel.

And after a long day lazing on the beach or indeed out on the fairways, what better way to enjoy the evening than indulging – or over-indulging for that matter – in a top class meal and a well deserved drink or two?

While the hotel’s fantastic location offers easy access to a plethora of restaurants in the surrounding area, the two on-site restaurants provide a much more convenient dining option. Brisa do Mar is open for three meals a day and serves a fantastic range of International cuisine as well as delicious traditional Portuguese fare. Enjoy Fresh Fish in a Salt Crust, Quinta do Lago seafood rice or Alentejo style black pig cataplana with clams and prawns from the comfort of the restaurant or indeed, al fresco style from the open-air terrace which boasts amazing views over the Formosa Estuary.


Brisa do Mar and Cá d’ Oro offer the chance to enjoy some al fresco dining during the warm Algarve evenings.

For a special occasion, diners should head to Cá d’ Oro which only opens for dinner. In the winter months, there is nothing better than savouring the fine Italian Cuisine on offer here by the light of the fire, whilst in summertime, the likes of Beef Carpaccio, Castellana Style Papardeli and Traditional Tiramisú with coffee sauce can be enjoyed in moonlight on the open-air terrace.

A walk down the wooden bridge towards the beach will also take to Gigi’s Restaurant, a favourite for hotel guests and locals alike. Boasting stunning views and unrivalled isolation, Gigi’s is one of the most famous eateries in the Algarve and a must for anyone staying in the Hotel Quinta do Lago. This simple wooden house is unpretentious, uncomplicated and unrivalled when it comes to the quality of their seafood.


If you can’t muster the energy to walk to the beach, the pool and its stunning views will just have to do!

Of course a luxury golf holiday wouldn’t be complete without a few sessions of pure relaxation in a spa and at Hotel Quinta do Lago you’ll find one of the best in the Algarve. Four separate massage rooms, a fully equipped gym, a heated indoor pool with counter-current and massage jets, a Turkish bath and a large sauna, not to mention an endless list of treatments and therapies such as Pinda Swedish Massage, Reflexology and Thai Massage, will ensure that, whatever your preference, you will be recharged and relaxed for the days ahead.

Quite simply, Hotel Quinta do Lago really takes some beating when it comes to 5* luxury and world class golf in the Algarve.
