We stayed at the Palmeraie Golf Palace and it was superb in almost every way. The only glitch was that our room was not tidied up when we returned from our golf at Amelkis on the second day. They made up for it though by immediately sending someone to attend to it while we relaxed at the spa.
The layouts at both Palmeraie and Amelkis were superb and about as good as one could expect for a resort. Both provided a good test for both me and my wife, and had I felt the challenge to play from the back tees, the length-difference would have challenged me adequately.
On course conditions were OK but I was a bit disappointed in that they had not changed cups for a long time so the edges were a bit tattered.
We only used the clubhouse for coffee which, while a bit pricey, was good, as well as lunch which was excellent at both Palmeraie and Amelkis.
Overall verdict - A strong 7 I would say. The cold weather put a bit of a damper on the week through no fault of Palmeraie of course.
Would you recommend YGT to a friend? Most definitely!
