Amendoeira Golf Resort

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this striking 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 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.

Jennifer

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Excellent villa - extremely spacious and comfortable with a decent-sized pool. Lovely views over the golf course and very peaceful. It was the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. We don't play golf, but it was very pleasant staying at a golf resort and the tennis courts were in excellent condition and we were able to play every day. The resort lacks a shop and only has one restaurant (which was a very pleasant place to eat and which also catered for vegetarians) so a car is essential if you stay here.
The villas are constructed on a hillside so have excellent views, but it means that the ground floor bedrooms are effectively 'downstairs' from the entrance (where the living accommodation is). Great for us as our kids are teens but probably not so good if you have very small children or if anyone has a struggle with stairs.
The pool was great - however, we travelled in October and if we had known that we could have arranged to have it heated ready for our arrival, then we would have done. It was well-worth the 25 euros daily charge to have the pool heated but it took a couple of days for the heating to take effect.

Swimming pool was in need of some light renovation. The villa was amazing within a stunning location. Car hire/ taxi is a must if you want to visit outside the complex.

Essex Couple
The accommodation was excellent. The oversized bed in one bedroom meant that there was little space to move around the room and made it difficult to use the wardrobes. Both bathrooms were also excellent although the shower doors over the bath were substandard. The sun loungers at the pool were not particularly comfortable.

Derry Family (with only pre-school children)
The apartment (and resort) is finished to a high standard and very well kept. The pool area is nice but the water is very cold! Unfortunately, we were plagued by ants the whole week - in the kitchen, living area, bedrooms...everywhere. The only solution we were offered was for housekeeping to come and clean them away but they just came back every time. We kept the apartment extremely clean the whole time, so perhaps it was the ground floor location that was the problem. I would advise trying to request a top floor apartment to avoid this - it really ruined our holiday.

Kingston upon Thames Family (the eldest child is at school)
High standard villa - modern and very well cleaned with regular maid service. We had a few maintenance problems (pool and aircon) but they were sorted out promptly by friendly staff.

Outside area had limited shade and access to the pool was through bedrooms or very steep stone steps.

Amazing sports facilities (gym, tennis, football pitches and of course golf) but kids club was a disappointment (no timetabled activity and kids left to amuse themselves, although staff were friendly).

Overall we greatly enjoyed the stay and would definitely consider returning.
