Warm welcome on arrival and room ready well before the agreed availability. However we were on the groundd floor in room015 which was next to the Kiddies day care centre so very noisy throughout the day. We were also disappointed with hour long it took us to transfer to the golf each day, espacecially Morgado and Alamos. The coach came to us first and dropped us off last so we often were out of the hotel for 9 hours to complete one round of golf. We got so frustrated we organized private transfers for the last few days. Local beaches were nice

My friend and I had a 3 night stay and 2 rounds of golf. The trip was brilliantly organised by Yourgolftravel from start to finish. The transfers to the hotel and the golf transfers went like clockwork. I will definitely use your golf travel again in the future.

I had visited this complex when just built as I was staying in the area and it hasn't went downhill since opening The adjoining rooms are a bit tedious as anyone who goes to bed last needs to go through the Bedroom of the ones who went before and seeing as its a free bar until 12 it can be a bit late until everyone in bed I would have preferred individual suites as the hotel wasn't very busy on arrival but certainly was on leaving Pools were too cold to try and you had to buy a hair cap to use the indoor pool ( opens after 10.00 am ) Food was excellent but the cocktails on offer came from a drinks machine and were a pale imitation of the real deal

Really good hotel, the only downside was that for a mixed group of golfers the suites have two double beds and separate bath/shower rooms but you have to walk through the first bedroom to get to the second so privacy is an issue.

This is a great hotel with all anyone would need at your disposal The food is totally fantastic, for breakfast you would find it hard to think of anything they have not got all displayed in a perfect condition - all the foods were just perfect and met with everyones tastes first class. The drink selection was also good and as a all inclusive money is something you really did not need at the hotel. Very good certainly worth another visit.

Our stay this year was excellent. The weather was perfect, hotel brilliant, selection of food was as always first class. Golf at Salgados and Morgado courses was most enjoyable. The only small complaint was the long wait at Faro airport for the transfer to the hotel on the 18th September. At least half an hour before the driver turned up, and that was after I phoned the office to find out what had happened to our driver.

Courses were good
No particularly sparkling holes. Hotel was only OK, even though it was all inclusive. The Hotel did not know what bain-maries were for. The hot food was always left on bain-maries which were not switched on. I complained numerous times but no one listened.

Fantastic, great value break. YGT were excellent and I would thoroughly recommend
All three courses were excellent. Salgados was by far the best but very hard for a high handicapper! If you cannot hit straight, you may find it frustrating. Hotel is lovely (if a bit soulless) and too remote, but well organised for golf.

My Caddy Tip -  Leave your driver in your bag on Salgados.

Had a great time and the courses were fab
The first 2 holes on Los Alamos were excellent with plenty bunkers to play out of. The last 2 on the Morgados were excellent and had a very difficult par three followed by a long par 5 with lots of bunkers to contend with.

My Caddy Tip -  Play short on Los Alamos 17th.
