The Do Golf complex is about 3 kilometres from Vilamoura. It's a perfect place for relaxing, especially if you don't play golf as the pool area is virtually deserted during the day. (The water was freezing but bearable).
Great one bedroom apartment, so spacious and very clean. Halogen hob, microwave with convection, fridge, toaster, kettle etc.
All you can eat buffet breakfast with both hot and cold choices so anyone who complains needs their heads examined!
Courtesy bus to the local supermarket at 9.30am, collects you at 10.40am. Bus also runs four times a day to golf course, beach and marina, (last one 5pm)
Taxis to marina charge about 6.5 euros.
Evening meals in hotel good value at 12.5 euros for a 3 course set meal. A la carte also available and it's really not bad. More more choice in Vilamoura restaurants and our favourite was the Casa Do Pesca with brilliant food, service and value. Just ask the taxi driver to drop you off there.
Entertainment in hotel is low key but pleasant.
All staff were friendly and helpful, we were even given a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary!
Would thoroughly recommend the Do Golf to everyone (except perhaps teenagers who might find it too quiet for them).
