First of all I want to thank Jason and Yourgolftravel.com for putting this package together, although I had been there the previous year and therefore knew the destination everything put in place worked wonderfully.
The transfers from the airport to the hotel and to all 3 golf courses, the guys operating this company were always presented smartly dressed, extremely polite and friendly, very helpful with luggage etc and always punctual. (Think some UK operators could learn from them).
The Hotel was great, really smart and very well maintained and perfectly situated, could not have been more central to everything required, beach, shops, restaurants and bars all within 2 minutes walk. Staff were extremely friendly without being over the top.
I had played these courses the previous year yet my memory of each course was a bit vague, however none disappointed, Estoril was fantastic the condition and presentation of the course along with perfectly well paced greens was probably the best of the week, Penha Longa was also probably equally as good, with fantastic surrounding views whilst playing many of the holes, and Quinta Da Marinha also did not disappoint although if I had to rate the 3 courses for that particular week then it would have been in that order.
In the square behind the hotel you will find plenty of bars/restaurants all vying for your custom, all are very similar in price and very much what you would expect to pay on holiday, if you look a little bit further afield plenty of good quality restaurants with different cuisines, drinks are not over the top and what you would expect to pay on holiday.
Cascais is a coastal resort about 30 mins from Lisbon, and also the highlight of the holiday is Cascais itself, beautiful place very clean and very well maintained and hosts many events throughout the year, think we picked the wrong week however, the previous week had been a festival of music for 7 days and the week after leaving was going to be a week of culture, lightshows, art, music, food, etc.
All in all cannot recommend this holiday and the professional help from Jason highly enough, just hope it doesn’t become too popular, certainly not a place for stag and hen parties etc hope it stays that way.
