We have just returned from a 3 night golf break at La Envia resort in Almería. The hotel is very impressive, easy to find and certainly deserves its 5 star rating. The reception area was lovely, with helpful and friendly staff. The room was very spacious, 2 queen size beds, balcony with view, large bath and separate walk in shower, mini bar...everything you could want in fact! The hotel has a state of the art gym which is free to use and a very impressive spa which we visited and would recommend to any weary golfers. Breakfast was good with a chef available to do eggs, bacon, sausage etc to order and a full range of cereals, fruits cold meats. We were there in early October and did not leave the hotel at night but, again from chatting to others, taxis are easily had for a trip to the town where there is a variety of bars, restaurants and shops.
We played 3 rounds at the adjoining course and though not essential I would recommend the use of a buggy. The course is parkland style with several nice holes and some great views from elevated tees. At a par of 70 it is a good test without being overly difficult. Fairways and surrounds were well maintained. All in all a very enjoyable golfing experience.
As always the booking was expertly dealt with by Your Golf Travel. I’m very happy to recommend the company and resort. Without doubt we shall return to La Envia and shall continue to book our breaks with YGT. No hitches...I cannot say the same for similar UK based companies we have used in the past!
