Just returned from a week long golf break in the Algarve and having played here on several occasions we were familiar with most of the golf courses. All are well maintained and will suit most handicaps which is obviously ideal for a group golf break as there is usually a good range of handicaps.
Each course offers a different challenge to the last. Alto Golf Club requires accurate tee shots, Gramacho as usual was in very good condition as was Vila Sol, which was our second favourite course of the week behind the completely re-vamped and stunning Palmeres. Pinta and Silves are also well worth a visit if you can’t get out on the others.
The Pestana Dom Joao II was excellent – very clean with spacious en suite bedrooms. We stayed on a 'bed and breakfast' basis, which suited our needs perfectly. Breakfast was spot on - buffet style, with a good variety.
The hotel was a 10 – 15 min walk into the centre of Alvor but a taxi was between 4 – 5 euros which the reception staff ordered and arrived within minutes. Alvor its self is delightful. Good selection of bars and restaurants. We would highly recommend Georgets and Rucculas for their outstanding food.
All in all a great golf break was had by all. Could not fault Your Golf Travel as everything was well organised at a great price. I would definitely recommend YGT to friends.
