Not 5*for me
Dec 2019
It’s a wonderful layout in very good condition. Each hole is separate with no housing on the course. Greens are first class. Practice areas superb.
In winter a yard or two off line= lost ball! It’s called Bon Nuit or good night weed - it’s everywhere and 100% will gobble your ball up and not to be found until May time when it warms up and they find thousands. They really should spray the most populated areas - recovery shots are part of the game - loosing every ball off line is punative. Bunkers are deep but sand often raked at right angles to direction of travel- making escape very hard.
Staff good but too many and attentive - don’t leave you to get on with it.
Overall too expensive for what it is.

Played golf and eaten here before. Not cheap at all but certainly at the higher end of the quality and service barometer. Would highly recommend.

Golf with Extras

What can one say about this place....is golf worth €200? The course is outstanding, great quality, well laid out, tidy and well presented. Each hole presents a challenge that you expect from a sport like this. The real edge and shine comes from the first class service, valet car parking, club viewing, souvenir key ring in presentation box, taken to practice area, first tee, course guide, cards, pencils....Never neglected at any point. A cold towel on the back nine....perfect in 30c temps. The best touch was the starter presenting a bag tag engraved with my name as I finished the 18th. We had a chat about the course and the future, sharing similar jobs it’s nice to see how equals get on. The best? It’s up their, having played around 220 courses world wide, certainly a top 10 place. This was always going to be a one off. Lovely visit, box ticked move on.

That lovely wind
Aug 2019 • Friends
As guests with friends at Monte Rei - Miradouro Veranda, we were able to experience ‘the experience’.
Loved the quiet swimming pool in early mornings, but we never will forget the lovely warm wind accompanied by the whispers of the palm trees,that came through the valley straight into our bedroom..
Lovely place..

Visited Monte Rei for a third time after several years and it’s still a gem. Hugely enjoyable course with excellent staff. The layout ensures you feel you have each hole to yourself and the spacing of groups mean you are never rushed or crowded.
A special mention to the food cart - really nice sandwiches at reasonable prices.
Just a properly put together experience for visitors. You will not regret it

From the minute we arrived we were taken care of. And we both loved this beautiful and challenging course. The tapas afterward were amazing. All the staff we encountered were all friendly and helpful. Don’t miss this!

Simply the best, better than all the rest

From the minute you arrive at Monte Rei you know that you are in for a treat. The service is unbelievably good, the staff can not do enough for you, the practice facilities are great and the golf course is sublime, a fantastic experience that I would love to repeat. It is expensive but go on and spoil yourself, you will not be disappointed as it is 6 Star all the way. Monte Rei is ranked the No 1 golf course in Portugal and in my experience is head and shoulders above anywhere else in Portugal.

JUST SUPERB!

The amazing golf course is matched by the incredibly friendly , helpful and knowledgeable staff from the pro shop and starter to to the guy driving the drinks trolley everyone just added to our enjoyment of the day. The course is right up there with the best but the overall experience really takes some beating and is well worth the trip.

Best Golf course in the Algarve
Apr 2018 • Friends
We visited Monte Rei for an afternoon round of golf in April 2018 and we were amazed at how well the course held up considering the amount of rain that fell that day as well as previous ones. The welcome was friendly, staff were attentive and helpful and the facilities were superb

The main negative was the food, it was average at best and that was for both lunch and dinner. The food didn't taste good, the basics such as club sandwiches were done badly and none of us had anything positive to say about it.

Ignoring the food as we were on a golf trip, we went to the practice facilities and that was more like what we expected from an exclusive resort. The range is great, the practice putting and chipping greens are big enough with plenty of slopes. We were then informed that we could go to the first tee and the starter was very helpful.

The golf course is fantastic, it feels like each hole is completely isolated, the greens ran well and the fairways are excellent. I love playing Nicklaus courses as the greens have these runoffs that punish short shots.

My main takeaway was, the course and facilities are exceptional, the food needs improvement but we would all return and play it again. It's location being an hour away from Quinta do Lago wasn't ideal but that shouldn't stop anyone visiting
