Golf

With contrasting designs and clever challenges ranging from scary ravines to tricky waterways, Nick Faldo and Christy O’Connor Junior have created two beautiful, characterful courses at the Amendoeira Golf Resort that will appeal to experts and amateurs alike. The academy facilities include a floodlit 9-hole par 3 course and practice chipping and putting areas, perfect for beginners or those looking to sharpen up their short game.
The 9 hole Academy Course has been built to the same high standards as the Oceânico Faldo and Oceânico O´Connor Courses. Three teeing options vary the line of play into each hole and maximize every hazard designed into the green complex. Amendoeira also offers complimentary golf buggy hire.

Oceanico Faldo Course

Oceanico Faldo Course

The first course, designed by Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind, demands careful positioning to score well, rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses and views to the distant mountains and orange groves defining its essential character. In a modern twist there are cacti and wild herbs, spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone on a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.

Oceanico O'Connor Junior

The second course, designed by O'Connor Junior, perfectly complementing the Faldo Course, whilst taking advantage of the rich valley soil in contrast to the arid hillside, offering no less of a challenge. Large areas of water demand accurate play and creative shot making, and these lakes and streams are maintained as a wildlife sanctuary.

Two families with school
The James Villas website photos certainly did not do our villa justice! It was even nicer than we expected!The garden was well maintained and as well as the pool area at the back, the garden also continued alongside the villa. The pool was ample large enough for the 5 of us and the pool man visited regularly to clean it and top it up. The accommodation was light, airy and vary spacious indeed. It was furnished to a high standard and was very clean. We were provided with everything we needed and the cleaners visited regularly. We had a great view from our terrace and the area was nice and quiet. The only downside to our villa was an extremely steep driveway. We could not get our hire car down it so we left it at the top of the drive as did many of our neighbours.

Villa Amendoeira III

Neil

Cardiff Family (the eldest child is at school)
The Villa is fabulous , tastefully decorated - I would happily live there and want to copy the layout of the open plan kitchen/living space at home! The only downside if I am being really picky is having to go down stairs to get to the outside space. The kitchen /living room is upstairs to make the most of the views so to get to the garden you have to go downstairs through the bedrooms or go outside and down some very steep stone steps. It would be no good if you were disabled or elderly. Saying that we had an amazing time and paid extra for the pool to be heated which made the holiday. It's our second time there and we would go back tomorrow!

Donald

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Apartment was fine, but resort was so spread out and clubhouse so far away (over 1km) that it felt very quiet. This wasn't helped by there being no real activities/meeting area in the evening to socialise.

Bath
not easy access to the pool as outdoor steps were cordoned off assuming for safety reasons, the only access was through the group floor bedrooms.
Also check out is a very early 10am!! with no possibility of late check out due to the villa being a James Villa, annoyingly though the domestic staff did not get round to clean the premises until 4.30 pm!!
POOR from the resort.

The reason for marking down the swimming pool was because it was in a state of disrepair. Otherwise the villa and accommodation was first rate

Eastbourne Family (the eldest child is at school)
Amazing space and view. Pool was fantastic. Only a couple of small things I would change-maybe a little maintainence on the property (nothing major) and the cleaners could have done a better job (but again nothing major). The only disappointing aspect was that there was a golf tournament for a week while we were there and it would have been nice to have known this before we booked as both courses were fully booked in the morning and afternoon therefore leaving the only tee times as the middle of teh day when it was the hottest

Stuart

St Asaph Family (the eldest child is at school)
Very nice villa on the golf resort. Well equipped with everything you need. Lovely view, three good golf courses, staff all very friendly.

Few minor points - pool decking is a dark wood, which in the heat gets incredibly hot. Flip flops or shoes are a must have. Access to the pool is through either of the two downstairs bedrooms, which is a problem if you have people who want to sleep in. No parasol for shade.

All minor points, but worth noting.

This was not the villa that we originally booked, as that villa was sold a few weeks before we were due to leave. So Villa Estrelinha was a replacement. All the villas on the complex are to a very high spec, with plenty of space and quality décor and furnishings. The outdoor areas have decent sized pools and well-kept gardens. This was our third drip to Amendoeira, which shows how generally impressed we are with the location and the accommodation. The main issue for us with Villa Estrelinha was that the pool and garden front onto the road side. This means that there is less privacy that the villas where the pools and main gardens are on the side of the villas away from the road. We spoke with the James Villas rep on this matter, and we were transferred to another villa on the complex, similar to the one we had originally booked, where the pool and garden was away from the road. We can't speak highly enough about the rep, who was very helpful and efficient in getting this sorted.
