My husband and I have stayed and played at Desert Springs numerous times, it's always a pleasurable experience. Not very different this time, we are on a 2 week golfing holiday. The main difference this time is, the course is less crowded and the staff are happy to adjust your

The self-catering accomodation was lovely, with a good sized pool right outside our door. We enjoyed the continental breakfast every morning and ate at the excellent restaurant every night where the food was very good and reasonably priced. The golf manager Malcolm arranged all

Arrived on a hot sunny afternoon to find a lovely clubhouse and a superb looking course. We were seen straight away at reception where two girls took us through all the ins and outs of the resort. Taken to “the lodge” for our accommodation which was far superior to what we were

Stayed at Desert Springs in June 2018 in a villa on Desert Drive. Superb location with lovely views over the golf course. Whether you play golf or not does not matter, its a great place to stay. As usual the organization was excellent, and the villa well prepared on arrival.

I am not an owner of a villa at Desert Springs so cannot comment on that. What I can tell you that Desert Springs is superbly run and is a real Oasis in Almeria. It is close to unspoilt beaches and real Spanish towns. The Golf course is superbly kept and the club house offers a lovely bar and first class food. The Crocodile club has a large pool and bar/dining area, but these are only open in the Summer months. Most detached villas have ther own pools anyway. Personally I have been coming to Desert Springs once or twice a year for the last 10 years or so. I would advise you to visit, and would be surprised if you were dissapointed. Jim

Do we need to take towels?
Towels are provided in the villas, but you would need to take towels for the beach. Jim

The Croc. Club pool remains open until and including the 2nd September, but is closed as from the 3rd. However, each large villa has its own private pool and each group of small villas , cottages, townhouses and apartments have a large community pool; these all remain open through the year.
