Beware of fraudulent charges on invoice
Sep 2019
They charge items on the hotel invoice that were not used, then write the invoice items in Portuguese to foreign visitors so it is very difficult to know if the invoice is correct. Lastly if you don’t notice it immediately, they refuse to rectify the mistake when asked to.
If possible, avoid this place and prefer honest places instead.

Cancellation Policy is ridiculous
Mar 2020
Oitavos cource has ridiculous cancellation policy. We had trip to Portugal and we were able to cancel all other rounds except Oitavos. We had 8 tee times reserved and 7 of them we were able to cancel. So, not yet experience about the course itself.

Dear sir, First of all, we deeply regret this overall situation. However, you knew our cancelation policy at the time of your reservation. As we are experiencing exceptional moments, the management of Oitavos Dunes has decided, however, that all reservations for this period would be returned in the form of a voucher in order to allow to benefit the service later on. Thank you.

Avoid it!
Sep 2019 • Couples
We visited Portugal to golf in September 2019.....and left what we thought was best round to the last round. It was also the most expensive round. We pay about $200 euros, without a cart. Avoid it like the plague! From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left.....it was a disaster. We didn’t see a single staff member....nobody greeted us. I actually think I heard them grunt as we walked by a staff member who was near the front door. Grumpy check in, told us they had to carts, no water, not food, no Marshall’s, the course was in disastrous shape.. Two of my friends we played with wanted to leave after the ninth hole....just to make a point. We came in only to again not get greeted. The golf cart they did end up finding for us was from 1970., as was the rest of their fleet of carts. Carried our own clubs to the car and on and on. I reached out to the golf course multiple times to share my displeasure, only to never receive a response. I figured now was the time to tell everyone else about our experience. Very disappointed. I could go on....hoping this helps someone else.

Very disappointing
Dec 2019 • Family
Money stolen from rooms by housekeeping. 5 rooms in our group have been targetted by staff and money taken from belongings. The safes do not work. The heating is non existent and we were shivering at night. And they charge 30 euros for any uber eats deliveries. Book with caution.

30 Day Cancellation Policy Is Ridiculous
Nov 2019
I was looking forward to playing the Oitavos Dunes golf course after the birth of my first grandchild. My plan was to experience the joy of a new born baby and support the new parents for the first week of parenting. As it turned out my daughter had an emergency C section delivery and she and the baby remained in the hospital for a week under intensive care. Given this situation, I felt I needed to cancel my trip to Portugal and my golf tee time reservation and stay to support the family during this very difficult time. The hotel, the airlines all provided refunds but the Oitavos Dunes Golf Course informed me that they had a 30 day cancellation policy and would not refund my money!! That is ridiculous!I have never heard of such a thing and want to share this with you. This is not a first rate golf course or establishment. They have lousy customer service, no compassion or empathy. Shame on Oitavos Dunes!

Great location, great golf course
Oct 2019 • Friends
Oitavos Dunes is simply one of the best courses in Portugal! I had the pleasure to play 18-holes early last Sunday and look forward to a speedy return. With fast, true greens and well thought out holes, Oitavos is now firmly on the European Tour calendar. It is tough and not for the highest handicapped players but actually quite fair. Beware... there is no rough but avoid the numerous waste areas within the tree lines and beyond... hit the damn fairways for an easy life! Warning: the food in the clubhouse is pretty average (head to the hotel for something altogether more edible) but drinks on the terrace are recommended. Include this course on any future Lisbon golf trip!

Golf trip
Sep 2019
For what is supposed to be a luxury golf resort the course was in very poor condition. The tee markers were very narrow and had not been moved for several days so we were teeing from bare earth. The buggies were the most expensive on our trip and one ran out of charge after 10 holes and no refund was forthcoming as the director was not present. When we returned the clubhouse was closed for a wedding with no notice beforehand all in all a very disappointing day

Beautiful and challenging
Sep 2019
It is a great links style course. Well-maintained with beautiful views of the mountains cliffs and water. The course has massive dunes and waste areas along every hole. So, it is easy to get into trouble. It's challenging for sure. But I do love playing there. It's also a good walking course. Although a couple of holes have longer walks but not unbearable. I highly recommend playing here.

Beautiful and very challenging golf course
Aug 2019
We have stayed at the Oitavos every summer for the past 6 years and always wondered what the golf course was like that weaved its way around the hotel.
a fantastic challenge where wind plays a massive factor. A traditional out and back course, 10 holes were directly into the wind and the remaining 8 with it. Intelligent and well thought through holes leave you with a challenge at every shot. It is great fun. Only complaint was that when we played the greens had just been cored and they were too woolly. Otherwise a very memorable experience.
