“A good course but a little tired”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We played the 2nd and 3rd of the 3 nines on 3rd February 2013. In the 3 days prior we had played Millenium, Victoria and Old courses at Vilamoura and so by comparison, Vila Sol was not in as a great a shape as the 3 Oceanico courses. However, it is a really good course, very picturesque and challenging. The greens were good but not as quick as the other courses. Worth playing though.

“Golf heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Possibly the best course in the area - don't miss the chance to play!! Every hole is a challenge and a delight to play - can't wait to go back.

“Good course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Villa Sol is a very good golf course.It's in great condition with good fast greens and good fairways. The round starts with 3 long par 4's where you have to be straight off the tee and then gets a bit shorter. There is a good clubhouse.

Course is made up of 3 x nine holes. Green are badly marked but play well. The course is hard and challeging.

“Good course, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

A tight tree lined parkland, sadly a bit potted on the greens, though players could repair pitch marks and divots to help. Hired a buggy which broke down, no one responded to our assistance call from automated equipment, had to walk back with cart bag of clubs to get a new buggy, lost time as a result, couldn't finish round, only offered a ten euro refund on a 110 euro cost! Poor service, poor response to the buggy breakdown which was a 30 euro hire.
