If your looking for a resort type course but it still within a 5min drive into town, then this is your place! Everything from the quality of the hotel, bar, restaurant, pro shop and obviously the course was awesome. The service from all the staff is second to none from the minute you arrive. I’ll be definitely going going back. Even my wife, who has only been playing for 18months really enjoyed.

Myself and my wife stayed here for 3 nights at the end of February and had a fantastic time. The rooms were very big (we had a par) and all overlook the 11th hole. Very thoroughly cleaned each day. The golf course was fantastic. We both have handicaps of 20 and 22, and found it to be challenging but achievable. Loads of entertaining holes but the bunkers are very deep and the holes are well protected by them. David the golf pro was particularly friendly, and really encouraging. All the staff were lovely! We did have some other guests who were playing very aggressively behind us on the Saturday, despite us being right behind the group in front. If you’re looking for a relaxing round I would say don’t play Saturday pre 1. That was our mistake, and the other 2 rounds we played on Friday and Sunday were much more enjoyable and all the other guests much more relaxed! All in all a great trip, we will be back!

We had learned that the management had done some serious changes over the last year to improve the quality of the restaurant, both in the kitchen as well as services, and we decided to give it a new try for Valentine. It was a pleasure to note that the rumor was correct, the staff provided excellent service throughout the evening and the food was delicious! The meat was cooked to perfection and we had a great evening with our friends. We have also tried the daily menu several times, and again thrilled to say the food is now to the standard one would expect at such a beautiful place. This uplift is highly appreciated and I hope this change will last forever!

Depends what you are after for an overall golf experience as to whether this is your perfect place. Certainly was ours. The helpful reception set the scene and although overall the resorts main areas might be ready for a refurbishment, the hotel areas and rooms are really nice and spacious with everything you would need for your stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff throughout the resort - and having landed in the wrong elevator from the underground hotel parking (our error) the staff could not have been more helpful. Resturant food felt like it was bordering on Michelin star, without the price! The steak and lamb chops was to die for - thank you so much fabulous chef. Leaving golf gear with the caddy master overnight for an early start was made especially easy by ALEX and followed through by excellent course management the next day. The course is beautifully kept despite its challenges and once again courteous treatment from green keepers and maintenance staff was consistently good. Cant wait to book our return trip............and we only live just over an hour away!

The hotel is located just 5 min off the highway and about 10 min from Marbella old town. It would be ideal if u had a car since it’s a bit interior, but that said it’s a Golf resort so it has to be so. We stayed in a standard suite and joy it did not disappoint. The rooms were very tastefully designed and all the amenities were very good. It was nice to spend a couple of days surrounded by nature to fuel us for the rest of our road trip. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom clean, big and room very contemporary in design. The staff at the reception as well at the restaurant are very helpful. The buffet breakfast was elaborate and tasty
