“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011 via mobile

Stayed with a friend and kids at a beautiful villa here. It had everything you could want. Was only here for 5 days so stayed local and the clubhouse food was excellent ate there most nights and even got a take away from there one night. Fab relaxing time was had by all.indoor pool and facilities excellent too.

Our end of row villa from Owner's Direct was fantastic;air con,sky TV & Sky sport,very clean and with really spacious garden with olive trees.Our pool was Lakeview which was very generous in size & plenty big enough, and the surrounding terrace was huge with plenty of sun loungers.Even though the signs say no inflatables or ball games there was plenty of both,and everyone was happy with this.The resort is kept immaculate by the staff.The Spa has lots to offer but we paid 8 euros for a 1/2 day's use of the gym, jacuzzi/steam rooms,indoor pool & sun terrace.We golfed several times, 95 euros for 2 players including a buggy, a decent price for Europe.And yes, you must have a pitch fork for the green's but that's only because it's a great course with a high level of maintenance. And no, under 17s can't drive the buggies but that's common practice too.Short game practice facilities are an excellent standard.The supermarket is a 3 minute drive away in Lagos.Luz is about 5 minutes the opposite way,a lovely place.Sagres with it's lighthouse & spectacular cliffs is worth the drive down the coast.
The Crawfords, Northumberland.

Room Tip: Try the Owner's Direct website for lots of choice.

This is a lovely resort, beautifully maintained grounds, golf course etc. but really is far off being suitable as a "holiday resort" offering amenities other than golf. The apartment was lovely (bit of too far a walk to the pool however) and the pool good but they need to invest in more on-site amenities. You definitely need a car even to go to the most local of supermarkets/restaurants and there's not even a little shop where your kids can go and buy an ice-cream or a newspaper. The main pool is nice and heated but there is no shallow end, just two sets of sloping steps so those kids who are too old/big for the children's pool all congregate by the steps as it's the only place they can stand! I think a restaurant called "Montes" was there at one point but that seems to have shut down. Pl enty of places nearby and the city of Lagos is excellent for shops/restaurants/supermarkets/beaches - also the beach town of Luz Bay is lovely and good for restaurants/supermarkets etc. All in all we had a good holiday but it does need to invest in some other facilities if they want to market themselves as a holiday resort as well as a golf resort.

First the downsides - A bit far out the town, car or taxi required. A kennel seemed to be in our area lots of barking throughout the day / night. Pool very nice, no towels allowed on chairs, but grating around pool falling apart & some children did get hurt, pool attendant looked on but did nothing.
Good points - Clubhouse nice & friendly, a little expensive but acceptable (when will they learn drop your prices & more people will go their). Accommodation very nice, clean & comfortable.
Overall I would go back as the positives outweighed the negatives.

Room Tip: Go for golf course view

I have stayed here with my family six times over the past few years both in August and October. The golf rates are more reasonable in the summer, but obviously it is much hotter. It's a pleasant course, however it is not the most challenging I have played. In the summer there are better deals at Villa Moura, especially if you have a junior playing with you. The Lakeview pool is bigger and more spacious than the Fairview pool, but we've never had a problem getting a sunbed. I usually rent an apartment from an owner direct and with Easyjet flights to Faro. It makes a good value holiday. As there are plenty of other families the kids (aged 11 and 13) usually find somebody to play with. Usually with the apartment we get free use to the spa, pool and discounted golf. The clubhouse is ok, but the food is not cheap or particularly special. I agree that the course marshalls are Gestapo-like and have been reprimanded many times e.g. letting my son drive a buggy. There is a fantastic waterpark nearby called Slide 'n' Splash that I recommend you visit. Silves is well worth a visit as well. Praia de Luz is the nearest beach and is excellent. You definately need a car to get around.

We were charged €170 to play the golf course this evening. My wife, 12 year old son and his friend. The course was nice but staff were only focussed on their finishing time. We were thrown off course at 7:40pm after being told we could finish the hole we were on. It was very upsetting after the cost and a bad finish to the otherwise enjoyable game. The cost for 4 for 7 holes of golf is not acceptable.

This was our second stay here. Apartment was clean and well maintained.
July is a quiet month,pools were peaceful, apartment included free spa and gym access. Golf course is challenging off the white tees, which you can use if 11 or better. Though the greens were a little slow and some of the bunkers not so well maintained. Clubhouse food as ever was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Great place for a holiday of course there are rules on the course, they are there to ensure people respect others. It is golf course, not butlins.
