Fantastic Villas! Great staff! Excellent gym! Really good food and the best gin & tonics in Spain! And the golf's top class also! The facilities are outstanding and once we could drag our children away from the swimming pool there is a whole range of beaches and beachside restaurants 10-15 minutes away.

We stayed in a 4 bedroom villa rented through 'James Villas'. The golf resort is lovely & if you are there for the golf it's ideal. We had 2 children who were too young for golf, but the pool in the villa kept them occupied every day, otherwise there is nothing for them in the resort. The villa was poorly... More

This was the first time my wife and I flew the Swedish winter for some weeks to relax and play golf. I took a good time to investigate different options since it was the first time my wife was on a golf trip so it had to be perfect. My choice fell on Desert Springs since they had a very... More

A fantastic week at Desert Springs. We were gobsmacked. To take a desert location and transform it into a living oasis is verging on the miraculous but what really impresses is the attention to detail lavished on the project, even down to the excellent Este wine. Although we'd heard a bit about Desert Springs, descriptions and photographs cannot do it... More

I loved Desert Springs - I went by myself for a week's tennis coaching which was superb, as was the gym. A beautiful resort with excellent staff and standard of service and extremely reasonable to eat and drink. A lot of consideration and effort has gone into the design and layout of the resort, which is a fabulously restful and... More

We visit Desert Springs regularly and have always found the resort to be excellent. The accommodation, the cuisine, the golf course and the climate have always been excellent, but even those attributes are surpassed by the service and attention from all members of the staff.

Desert Springs was a wonderful November golfing break 6 pals. The villa we stayed in was beautiful with a lovely pool to use and enjoy the sunny weather. The dining was excellent, facilities first class and clubhouse welcoming. Their greatest asset is the staff who couldn't do enough for us. Finally, the golf course is first class.

Spent an idyllic two weeks in Desert Springs and are looking forward to planning our next break. We stayed in a beautiful four bedroomed villa with private pool on Buena Vista. The villa was immaculate with a very well equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining, BBQ etc (although we were quite lazy and enjoyed leisurely breakfast in the Golf Club... More

Visited the restaurant with friend. Meal was very good if not outstanding. Staff very friendly if a bit absentminded but that didn't detract from the food. Would certainly go again for the fixed priced midday meal at €17.50 for three courses served in very pleasant surroundings.
