We stayed in a 4 bed villa, amazing! (although we requested 8 single beds beforehand which didn't happen and we had to sort a fix out when we got there). Villa was everything and more, high quality, location, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, pool area, etc. The shuttles to the two on-site courses were quite prompt. We found a decent minibus taxi to ferry us around to offsite courses and at night (Johny at Desire Blue – Viagens e Turismo). Best restaurant we found was 'Restaurante A Rede' in Carvoeiro (give Praia da Rocha a miss - mini Benidorm). We played four rounds of golf in four days Gramacho, Silves Alto and Pinta, all excellent (greens a bit ropey at Pinta), but we thought Gramacho was best, Alto next. Only downside of the break was not being able to pre-book buggies, quite stressful, which we didn't get at Alto, not too hilly; but you couldn't do Pinta without buggies. Overall an excellent break, worth every penny.
