We wanted a week in the sun and we got just that! Cloudless blue skies all week and in March! Hotel is good, we had a room overlooking the pool and the balcony got the sun from 10 in the morning through until about 5 in the afternoon. The other side wouldn’t have been as good!

This was a lovely hotel, great breakfast with lots of choice. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool was clean and nothing bad to report. It was in a very central position and so walking to all the restaurants was easy and on the level. Also close to the boat trips.

This hotel deserves a higher score. However, we booked in for a seven night stay in the evening and awoke to several loud crashes and found we were directly above two large skips being used as part of hotel refurbishment. We asked to be moved to a quieter room which was easily

Monte Rei is a fabulous venue. Rather expensive but if you want to play a challenging “one of the best in Europe “ then worth it. Quinta Da Ria & Cima are excellent. Castro Marim is interesting. Benamor is rather boring.
