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. 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.

Paul

Hertfordshire Family (the eldest child is at school)
Excellent lovely villa. Only thing I can point out is the outside needs to be cleaned just as much as the inside. Patios and the surrounding pool areas loads of leaves and a lot of bird droppings around which look like their not swept up every time the Villa is cleaned as we saw hairbands etc which was not ours!!!

Craig

Livingston Family (the eldest child is at school)
Villa exceeded our expectations - pictures on website don't do it justice. The gardens and courtyard were lovely and the villa spacious and suitable for a large family.
The only downside (and nothing to do with the cleanliness of the property) is that everyone suffered from a lot of insect bites which was a nuisance. Only other suggestion is that the villa be equipped with a couple of extra sun loungers permanently placed on the roof terrace which would avoid the need to have to move them from the pool area.
Overall, a great villa for families, very well equipped, modern and stylish in a great central location if you wanted to explore the local area and attractions

Villa was lovely and spacious but the pool was not cleaned during our 10 days and the grass wasn’t cut, there was no outside shade on the ground floor or umbrellas so you could be by the pool but have some shelter, some aspects were dangerous for small children; no railings on steep drops off the patio, etc

Just trivial things.
The sun beds were not very comfortable would have been better with covers.
I reported a facia panel above lounge window and was lying on the floor.
Lovely holiday we will be back

Sarah

Silves - Algarve Group
Amazing villa, really high quality furnishing. Only negative comments where the lack of cushions on outside seating and loungers and a mid-week pool clean would of been beneficial. Also, for the size of villa and number of guests, more dustbins would of be useful. Would of also like the option for recycling.
Only small comments which would of improved our almost perfect holiday!!

Matthew

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Have stayed here previously - only rebooked because of heated pool option. We did not use the pool at all because of lack of heating and had very disappointed children. This was not made clear! Constant problem with ants in the villa - couldn’t drop a crumb without being infested. Downstairs toilet smelled like a sewer for the week and remember a similar problem last time we visited! Too many visits from house keeping. Think we will try booking with someone else next time!! Visit from rep was also pointless as we knew more than her! Disappointed - have used you many times before and this holiday wasn’t cheap.

Ross

Enfield Family (the eldest child is at school)
Overall I am really happy with the villa. It has suited every need.
There were minor bad points like few spider webs, pool not really cleaned "comparing to other ones", boiler stopped working, fuse blown and no lights in hallway, gates didn't close at the beginning. But everything was rectified within few hours. The only thing that I was really upset about was the boiler, when it stopped working we were without hot water for 6 hours, as when we called no one turned up, so we had to call again. Someone came and replaced the part that heats up the water, so basically we had to wash in a cold water on that day because it would take another 2.5 hours to heat it up.
The swimming pool at the villa is quite warm as sun is constantly on it, because of the south facing location. What i didn't like was the portable BBQ, they could have made an effort to build a proper one.
The resort facilities are quite good. You have a free shuttle bus that can take you around the resort free of charge. As you are staying in the resort you have a complimentary pyramid golf course. But you have to abbey to the dress code and have your golf shoes with you. They can be rented but no kids sizes available. The prices for golf are also much lower around 40% if you are staying withing the resort.
