We travelled as a group of 8 golfers on a five-night break in Vilamoura. Throughout the booking process Your Golf Travel were helpful with organising accommodation and tee times. Providing options and reacting quickly to our changing plans. The hotel Vila Gale Ampalius is very large and not particularly attractive; however it provides clean and comfortable rooms at reasonable rates. On the down side the breakfast was very average (much choice but not much quality) and the lifts very unreliable. The pool and bar area were pleasant with plenty of loungers.
Service at the golf courses we played, Millennium, Old, Victoria and Laguna were superb. Efficient and friendly staff, excellent courses in good condition and comfortable clubhouses for the post game refreshments. Transport to and from the courses via the shuttle bus service was on time and much appreciated. The courses around Vilamoura are tough and long, but they are fair and the views and weather make up for problems the long handicapper may be having.
As a resort Vilamoura is very English with pub style bars, rock music and Karaoke centre stage. It’s a place for fun rather than culture, but that said the restaurants provide excellent food (if you choose well) and some superb Portuguese wines.
Your Golf Travel delivered a golf break experience which offered value for money, good sport, reasonable accommodation and stress free administration. Transfers and bookings all as quoted on the vouchers we presented and not questioned.
I would recommend Your Golf Travel to friends looking for similar and will almost certainly use them next year to book similar again, but this time to a better hotel or more likely a new resort
