Primarily it is a Golf and Country Club, but not like anywhere else in the Iberian Peninsula...other than Valderama in Spain, It is the best of the best, with one of Jack Nicklaus's great course layouts. A true test, but also very pleasurable for the higher handicap golfer as well. If you want to spoil yourself, rent one of the million euro villas, for a few nights. Very reasonable packages are available. The staff were unbelievably polite and efficient, even although we did experience a few rude golfers, who obviously left their manners behind somewhere !!!! The condition of the course was excellent, as it always has been, in my opinion.
Apart from the golf, Lora and Jamie Perez, (chef @ El Bulli before closure) run a Food and Beverage operation that is genuinely worthy of at least 2 Michelin Stars.....it is that good. The Vistas restaurant de gustation menu, is the best food I have eaten for a few years and is comparable with Michel Roux...at his best. Only at a fraction of the cost !!!!! Worth the airfare alone......if only it was open on more days of the week. I could go on and on,praising the staff and facilities, but won't.....go and see it for yourself, I am sure you won't be disappointed. As my wife said, Five Star Far East Service in The Algarve.......
