We stayed in a self catering town house over the Christmas period. It was clean and adequate, but lack charm or homely touches. It was a rather dark building which got very little sunlight during the winter period, although I would think this would be a blessing in a scorching summer. Our main problem was that the artificial lighting was very dim and inadequate with no table lamps etc which could be used to enhance light and atmospher . The kitchen was clean and just about ok. Everything worked, but there was only one shelf in the oven, and the only supplies left for us were two dishwasher tablets and a small quantity of washing up liquid. However, there was a plentiful supply of good towels and the hot water and heating systems were excellent . A slightly bigger problem problem was that there was no parking close to the house and this required quit a bit of maneuvering of heavy golf equipment and shopping. We used the on site restaurant several times and must say that the food was extremely good and plentiful. All the staff that we came in contact with were friendly and helpful.

Roda Golf Course
Thomas' brief was to create a golf course that could be enjoyed by everyone, and would also be totally harmonious with the natural landscape and its indigenous plant and wildlife. The lush green fairways are bordered by stunning flora and fauna, while the brilliant white sand makes for fantastic contrasts of colour.
Thomas has shaped the landscape and incorporated three startegically positioned lakes into gently undulating terrain to produce a layouyt that is truly enjoyable for all standards of golfer. The fairways are generous but wild shots will be punished by the surrounding trees and rough. The design is also typically Dave Thomas in that the golfer cannot overpower the course, and is required to think his or her way around in order to be rewarded with a decent score.

Accommodation at Roda Golf & Beach Resort
The outstanding new facility at Roda is of such great quality that the PGA of Europe have chosen it as the venue for their first golf academy outside the United Kingdom. The region is blessed with 300 days of sunshine during every calendar year, so this is the spot for a golfing getaway in the dreary winter months at home.
The resort has both 2 and 3 bedroom apartments which only opened at the end of 2006, and are ideally placed for accessing Dave Thomas' golf course. The apartments are perfectly equipped to ensure that your self-catered accommodation will be comfortable and luxurious.
The resort is owned and managed by one of Europe's best golf resort management companies, De Vere, and Roda, along with its brilliant sister resort, Corvera Golf and Country Club with its super Jose Maria Olazabal-designed course, is blessed with all the facilities you could dream of, including a number of outdoor swimming pools and the superb beach club. The golden white sand is pounded by over 300 days of sunshine a year, making it perfect for relaxing and soaking up the rays.

Self catering town house quite a long way from the clubhouse
Accomodation was pretty much as we expected. Enough space in the lounge and bedrooms, small kitchen but OK for a few days. Basic standard of furniture.
The apartments were well equipped and we were fortunate to be fairly near the pools, reception and about a 5 minute walk to the golf facilities. The check in was superb and the lady was a credit to Roda Beach Resort. Disappointed that there were no shops on site and that despite us being the only people in the pool playing with a ball resort security put a stop to it!

We enjoyed playing this course five times over our holiday period and found it a challenging course that remained constantly interesting. The first nine is more demanding than the back nine and wayward or over ambitious shots will be penalized . The signatures par three, hole seven is surrounded by water and requires an accurate shot to avoid running of the back. I really enjoyed playing it as it was clear where the danger was! If you have not got a gps buy the course planner . There were many complaints about reading the greens but I felt that it was mainly a case of getting the pace right and we just about got there on the fifth attempt!
Course was challenging but playable. General condition good but greens showing signs of being overplayed. Not helped by golfers not repairing pitch marks! this must be frustrating for greenkeepers and is inexcusable
In need of some tlc with several greens looking like patchwork quilts.
We were a group of 12, with a mix of players from single figure handicappers to some who only play once a year. So we played mainly just for fun, nothing serious. And apart from the greens the course was good. Just stay out of the rough.
Tough course with no 1st cut - straight from fairway into tough grass where struggling to see balls sat low down
Firstly when we arrived it was post a torrential storm which had a massive impact on the course condition, however Marco went above and beyond to help us make the most of the situation and despite us due to play 2 rounds at Roda he managed to get us a transfer to Lo Romero at no additional expense to us which was fantastic. We were able to play 18 holes on the Sunday, whereby the greens were in poor condition they were closing 4 of the greens the following day on the recommendation of the green's staff which was the reason we decided to choose an alternative course for the Tuesday. Marco was a star!
