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.

Hastings Couple
Overall we were very pleased with this lovely villa. The slightly disappointing aspects were the outdoor space and the pool, hence our scores of 7 and 8. The outdoor space included some very steep steps that were actually chained off to use, this meant that access to the decking area/pool was through one of the bedrooms! Fortunately for us it was a bedroom we didn’t have to use for sleeping in. The pools’ lower score was really down to its upkeep rather than the pool itself. We needed to have the pool cleaned twice within the week and it was only looking it’s best after the second clean. There was a slight musty smell around the pool and decking area. The golf resort was particularly well maintained and their staff were very quick to respond to our concerns.

Positives
- Spacious modern villa
- Good welcome pack

Negatives
- Poor outdoor sun loungers, very uncomfortable - did ask for cushions but none received
- Issue with drain covers in road, constant loud bangs every time they were driven over from early morning until late at night as the road was directly in front of the villa. Could easily be rectified with a rubber seal
- Beds were too hard but I guess that’s personal preference
- very noisy all Male groups in neighbouring villas (I understand this is a golf resort and attracts Male groups but felt the noise levels were not in keeping with the environment)

As we booked this villa only a week before departure, we received a reasonable deal so overall happy with the holiday. Had we paid full price, we would have been very unhappy as the above issues did impact on our enjoyment of the holiday.

Malcolm

Harlow Couple
We have stayed at different villas at Amendoiera, all the same style. All of them have been of a high spec. However, it is the little things that let Villa Laranja down. The pool is great and beautifully clean and the garden is lovely and well maintained. But, there were no cushions for the outdoor chairs which given their design makes them unusable; no cushions for the sun loungers; and the two sun umbrellas were cheap and small. Given the quality of everything else and the cost of hiring the villa, these things should have been provided. And other small things such as a broken knob on the ensuite shower in the main bedroom, and one of the taps in another bathroom being plumbed the wrong way round. All these things take the edge off what is generally high class accommodation.

Julie

Barry Family with older children
The villa was absolutely lovely. The cleanliness was amazing. However there were just a few issues.
The kitchen was over run with ants if you left anything on the work service and I mean anything.
We saw a few rats running through the bushes of our villa and one morning woke to find a dead one in our pool.
The outside steps to the garden were blocked off saying danger! So the only way to the pool was through the downstairs bedrooms.
Saying that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely look to go back.

Clare

Midlands Family (with only pre-school children)
The villa was gorgeous, so clean and spacious and all the little things were included making it a home from home. We loved it. The pool is nice although a little cold and we went in August and the garden area is maybe a little small (no big deal though, it was clean and well maintained) The golf club house/ reception does great food and the service was outstanding so we often went up there for drinks and lunch. The waiters were a credit to the resort.

Only negative was the bbq in the villa needs replacing to match the high standard of the villa, but honestly the villa itself was just gorgeous, so modern. Loved loved loved the kitchen and dining/lounge area the best. Great stay

Beckenham Family (the eldest child is at school)
The resort was very nicely presented and the apartment was really nice, clean and spacious. The gym was very good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing that let it down was the restaurant on the resort. We ate there once and the service was slow and disorganised, and the buffet was poorly presented, not the best quality and the things that should have been warm were cold.

We have been before and found the accommodation and cleanliness to be of the same high standard. There were a couple of niggling faults, for instance a broken umbrella and a pool-cleaning rod but nothing of any great note.
