Excellent accommodation, very clean & comfortable, food was high quality with good choice. Pool area was spotless with more than adequate sunbeds, although this was outside of main holiday period ( mid June). Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Golf Courses at El Rompido Hotel & Golf Resort
In 2003, Alvaro Arana put together a beautiful course featuring pine trees and orange groves on wonderful parkland turf. Just like it's neighbour, the North Course, the nearby marshes play a prominent role in the backdrop of this course and add to the character of the track. The South course is one that rewards accurate and clever golf, thinking your way around the course and playing conservative golf will put you in good positions to make a score.
The rolling terrain has some slight but beautiful elevation changes as you move through the course. The South at El Rompido Resort reserves its most spectacular feature to the very end. The 17th and 18th tees sit on a pontoon so you can play your tee shots over the marsh and onto the fairway beyond. This course is so much fun but those final two tee shots really leave you with a great impression of the place.

The inception of the North Course in 2006 confirmed El Rompido's position as one of the region's golfing leaders, and is well worth a stop during your golf holiday in Andalucia. Not the longest in the world, however, it is a course for smart golfers rather than long-bombers and requires well thought-out golf shots to score well. Set in the middle of the Marismas del Río Piedras Nature Reserve amongst mature pine and orange groves The North is a joy to behold with plenty of nature to compliment the golf course.
Most of the front-9 of this course makes its way along the Piedra River marshlands. The feel of the land and the inevitable southern Spanish heat gives the course a feel reminiscent of Florida. As you play the more inland back nine, the course has an absolute gem awaiting you.
The 16th is one of the highlights of the round and the short par-3 is not one to take lightly. At only 136-yards, you would be forgiven for letting the beauty of the marsh in the background and the lack of distance put you off. However, you will need to keep your wits about you as the green is protected by two of golf’s most fearsome hazards…coffin bunkers.
Both the North and South Courses have their own extensive practice ranges that are designed by golf professionals to offer the best practice facilities.

The Golf School
The courses at El Rompido Resort are impressive, however, the practice facilities here are just astounding. With two comprehensive practice areas, one for each course, you can use your time at the resort to really work on your game and come home a better golfer. In fact, this is the perfect place to go for some pre-season training so you can hit the season at home running.
The facilities on the southern side have a large putting green, comprehensive short game areas and a full-length driving range to develop your long game. The northern practice complex features a shorter driving range, a wedge area for working on longer approach shots, a putting green, a chipping green and a practice bunker. You have plenty of options to find a quiet place to develop your skills.
These courses are a joy to play and with the facilities on offer after your round, you can enjoy a great drink and a chat with your playing partner(s) as you wind down from a day of fun. The El Rompido Resort is a gem of Southern Spain and one not to miss.

Had a great time,12 of us away for 7days and not a single complaint. Hotel, staff, and food and drink unbeatable, definitely will go back
An excellent location in a resort geared to golf groups of all sizes and all genders. Rooms are a good size with most having views of pool area. Restaurant food and choice is fine with excellent breakfasts. You can purchase and make up your own rolls for the course for just €2.!! Practice and clubhouse facilities very good.
Traveled with a group of 18,hotel staff could not do enough for all of us. Some including myself upgraded to 2 room appartments well worth the extra for own room. Both courses very well maintained absolute quality golf. No complaints for 18 of us. Will be going back.
Very spacious comfortable and calming hotel. The free room upgrade was great. The fellow guests were mostly northern european with a number of large groups (women mostly). The buffet dinner each evening offered different dishes each time with variety and quality. Breakfasts were great with many usual options. The staff everywhere were very attentive, pleasant and efficient. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.
The Precise Resort in El Rompido is advertised as 5 star accommodation, however, it is at best a 4 star. The staff are pleasant and the hotel is clean, but, the bedrooms and bathrooms are in need of an update. The buffet area in the dining room, for breakfast and evening meal, is inadequate for the amount of people, it has a very limited choice and frequently runs out with slow replenishment. The hotel also had an unusual policy of selling fruit at breakfast, i.e. bananas, apples, oranges etc. Several areas outside were being made ready for the ‘busy time’, ie, the decking and outside swimming pool, which we were told started in April. The indoor swimming pool incurred a cost of €3 for a ‘swimming hat and towel’. When you have already paid for the hotel, the purchase of fruit and extra charges for the pool, were slightly annoying. The weather was above average for our trip, however, there was no air conditioning, the reception staff stated that only the heating had been connected! The two golf courses were in very good condition and compliments to the green keepers.
Very comfortable room and good housekeeping. Staff are pleasant and helpful. It is a small hotel with one bar and a restaurant. The food is good but choice is limited. Overall it was a good experience and we will return there for more golf.
All was perfect but the bar area was noisy but this was not the fault of the hotel
Not a bad choice of food but unfortunately not cooked very well. Not 5 star
Very good buffet clean rooms good views.
As last year hotel was clean and tidy, staff were very helpful
Everything was as you would want it to be. I have no hesitation in the rating of all aspects of the holiday and would highly recommend it to all golfers
Not quite as good as previous years. Changes to the bar/restaurant drinks policy was disappointing.
Sorry, your filter options returned no results.
Played 5 rounds, i was disappointed that we were limited to playing the south course.quite a few of the long holes have bunkers in front of the greens instead of at either side which meant a good straight shot at the green invariably finished in the sand. The greens had recently been hollow tined & sanded which made them very slow. The practice facilities were excellent, the large practise green was the best green I have ever putted on quick & true. I was told the north course greens were the same as the practice green. The clubhouse staff were very helpful & accommodating. Overall a very enjoyable golf holiday. Would definitely return with the provision some of the rounds were place on the north course
Played north course twice, all grand
Enjoyed the golf, held up one day by slow play up ahead, played South course 3 times, no complaints
Nice holes but a bit of a slog compared with South course. The ladies in our group did not want to play our second round on the North, so we had another day off. With temperatures up to 30 degrees it was no real hardship.
Three rounds on the South course and a good test for all standards. Some holes could be regarded as a bit quirky but you will enjoy it. Buggy required and prebook but at €39 they are a bit pricey. Greens a bit slow but need to be protected from the sun.
Borh Quality courses.
The more challenging course with water, marshland and/or trees to be avoided off the tee on most holes, particularly the back nine. Accuracy and course management were paramount but very enjoyable. The condition of the whole course was excellent with great greens which were generally flatter than the north course. The tee setup again with blue beteween yellow and red for oldies was welcome and more enjoyable. I’d suggest a buggy on this course as there was considerable distance to the first tee and often from greens to next tee.
A quite open and forgiving course off the tee with many interesting holes. An occassional hole where marsh and/or trees were to be avoided with the tee shot. The greens were excellent - speedy and true. The condition of tees fairways etc. also excellent. The greens were tricky with many slopes and upturned saucers here and there. Very friendly and helpful staff in shop and buggymasters/bag store and on course. The teeing setup was great with black, white, yellow tees then blue before red ones. Blues for oldies like me and ladies 0-10 handicap.
I preferred the south course, the views across the Natural Parkland is picturesque. Like the north course, you will loose your ball if you fail to keep it on the fairway. Greens and condition of the course was very good.
The north course is not as picturesque as the south, however it can be challenging if the ball is not placed accurately. The condition on both courses is excellent and the greens are in very good condition.
Slightly more difficult than the South course but again a nice layout with good greens and views. Overall both course are a fair test of a golfers abilities and enjoyable experience.
Good variety of holes and not too long with great views over the nature reserve. Very busy course but still managed to get round in 4 hours.
Same comments as I made about the North course.
We enjoyed the course and the greens were perfect. The teeing area was a bit worn and perhaps the markers could have been moved more frequently. The golf buggies needed some attention. Twice we ran out of battery power and we noticed that most buggies had broken windscreens.
Some long walks from greens to next tee.
Tricky dog legs Tight fairways at times.
Unfortunately the weather was a little unkind so it spoiled a couple of days
A good test of golf off the white stakes the south course being slightly better
Playing off the white stakes both courses were a good test of golf .
South course was very well presented.Fairly tight in places and proved to be quite a challenge.Some very interestig holes with a good variety of shots required.The views were lovely and the whole experience was very enjoyable.
