Apartments were nice, breakfasts and food in clubhouse were good enough but service and food in restaurant on last night was not good enough and location was twice as far away from Lisbon and airport than was advertised to us

We stayed at the beachfront, the accommodation was very good although we had no hot water for 2days which wasn't dealt with faster enough by the resort.The bars are massively over priced €11 for a G&T 7€for a beer.
No wifi, and remotely at the mercy of taxis. Otherwise 5 star excellent, and a 5 minute walk to the beach.
Got an upgrade on arrival so had a fantastic villa!! Amazing views, very comfortable!!
We stayed in the Villa´s not the hotel.
Initially we had to ask to swap from our allocated apartment as all the furniture including bedding was damp. The revised accommodation whilst further from the clubhouse was better situated and much nicer (and drier). We had one poor experience in the clubhouse bar when our order was forgotten and when it arrived the food was not great (think rushed). Otherwise the experience was very good.
We were upgraded from a Garden view to a Beach view two bed villa not the hotel. It was very well appointed and ideal if you want self catering with a fully equiped kitchen. It is a quiet and a short walk to the stunning beaches and overlooking the Praia D'El Rey sea holes. There is an eratic opening hours mini supermarket and fish restaurant, Mare, a short walk away. The restaurant is expensive compared to local places.
This is a review purely about the accommdation we had in the "Village by the garden" apartments. Generally they were fine, although the hot water did not work in one of the two apartments when we arrived (though resolved when we noted it). The location of our apartment within the resort was not ideal as we had to get the shuttle bus everywhere. The shuttle bus was in fact the biggest problem with the resort as it simply wasn't reliable. Biggest issue was when they allowed us to "book" it for the following morning to get to West Cliffs for our 0800 tee times but they simply didn't turn up and clearly hadn't made any record of the booking. Disappointing in that respect.
Wifi not included Pools not heated Transportation was late every morning Miles from anywhere
Golf courses were good and I’d probably rate troia as number 1, then west cliffs and then Praia del Rey. West cliffs has great potential, but needs significant improvements to realise the potential as tee boxes were in terrible condition as well as a lot of the buggy paths/around the edges of the course. If the trait is quiet then it can feel a bit soless, we decided to have supper one night in baleal which is well worth doing. For troia we stayed in central lisbon and I’d strongly advise that as the course has limited options in respect to food and drink, other than nice beaches and beach cafes in nearby comporta at the right time of year. Central Lisbon to troia is 1hr 30mins incl. boat trip from setubal which is worth doing.

fantastic course. beautiful condition and a great contrast between the two nines with one more links type and the other more inland. some stunning holes down by the sea. we played off the back tees but the course is sufficiently forgiving if you miss the fairway so you can find the ball and keep pace of play moving
This course is lovely, but unfortunately once again between golftravel and the resort we were lied to again, we had 12.40 2teetimes and promised we would have plenty of time to get round, but no, we couldn't play the last 2holes on both days as it was pitch black.
I think this is the best course on the site. Holes 12-16 are the closest to links golf I've seen on the portuguese circuit, plus there is less walking between holes, so it's the most carry-bag friendly. I always carry my bag.
What a great golf course!! Very playable but would think a high handicapper my struggle with the up hill or down hill lies! I will definitely be back to play it again!!!
I played this course four times and did not tire of it. It has some spectacular holes by the sea and some delightful holes through pine woods. Many of the tees are elevate and provide beautiful vista. The course was in very good condition, green and lush with any worn patches cleary marked GUR. The clubhouse was very nice, with staff who did their best to help. We found the food expensive but good. In conclusuion I would say that I enjoyed it enough to go again.
Nice course with great views. Played second time in mist, which actually was nice as it was much cooler. Mist, we have been told, is an issue at Praia D'El Rey.
A very good course with stunning holes along the atlantic coast it is testing but fair and can be enjoyed by all handicaps. For the start of October it is in very good condition and appreciably better than those experienced in the Algarve. It is a course, as are most in Portugal, where buggies should be used there are some long distances between greens and tees. It was evident that the slower rounds are predominately caused by those pulling trolleys which is a shame.
A great course
Could tell it was more established that west cliffs, but is less interesting apart from a fun back nine I recall. Also feel it just needs some small tweaks to dramatically change my perception of it from a good to quality course / set up.
