Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this striking golf resort takes full advantage of its elevated position with breathtaking views over lush valleys of almond, olive and carob trees and the magnificent Monchique mountains beyond. The blush pink Moorish architecture, with its elegant arches and shady terraces, contrasts beautifully with the vibrant greens and emerald fairways of no less than two thrilling championship golf courses. The peaceful surroundings and impressive range of additional sport and leisure facilities within the resort make this an ideal choice for both a relaxing, peaceful holiday.

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.

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.

Sandra

Cardiff Group
We were very disappointed whej we arrived to the resort. Firstly, we were told we were a 'no show' and we should have arrived the previous day. However, I contacted James villa before we booked the holiday to confirm that we would be a day late but still pay the full price for the villa for 7 days. This led to us waiting a while to get into the villa, further paper work and worry that we would not be able to use the villa.

Furthermore, there were so many ants within the kitchen area during our stay. We cleaned the best we could, emptied the bins straight away and did not leave any food or drink out. However, we didn't have a cleaner for all the time we were there. Which meant the tea towels were disgusting by that time and the villa felt dirty.

Lastly, the pool haven't not been cleaned for a week also was dirty.

Cheshire Family (the eldest child is at school)
Very clean, well equipped and modern villa. Pool heating was very good and definitely worth the extra money.

For a villa of this price and category we were very disappointed regarding the level of privacy of the outside pool and bathing area. The whole area was VERY visible from the adjacent road and from the villa next door.

If you are not able to plant hedges or plants (as other villas had), it would not take much to invest in some simple willow or rattan screening to put along the fence line.

The villa looked exactly as the photos online and was well maintained. Air conditioning was great and a welcome relief from the heat.

The free shuttle bus to the beach was excellent and always punctual, the drivers were especially helpful.

The staff at the golf resort were all polite and helpful.
