Arriving on a Thursday, leaving on Monday, we managed four and a half rounds on the hotels two courses, the benefit being that its only short walk to the clubhouse so no time wasted travelling to and from various courses.
No chance of getting bored with either course because both are interesting in completely different ways. The short course is all about club selection off the tee. Get it wrong and you're spitting sand.
The big course is a true championship course, long and challenging.
The hotel is an architectural wonder in its own right! Styled as a Spanish village, with squares, a church etc its almost like a filmset. Our apartments (family rooms) were a fair hike from reception, but were massive. Mine had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two 50 inch plasmas, kitchenette and huge dining room/lounge.
We enjoyed a superb breakfast in Los Naranjos every day on our way to the clubhouse and obviously a few beers après-golf in the clubhouse.............although it must be said the staff there were less than hospitable.
It will be worth checking that Melia (who have recently bought the hotel and golf courses) haven't put the prices up, because this year (2012), it has got to be said that the hotel + golf package is fantastic value for money.
