Castro Marim Golfe & Country Club

Located in a spectacular, elevated position in the less developed eastern Algarve, Castro Marim Golfe enjoys 360 degree views, including the shimmering waters of the Atlantic to the south and the hills forming the border with Spain to the north. From the quaint little town of Castro Marim, with its simple white houses and terracotta roofs, medieval castle and ancient fort, it’s just a short drive across the Guadiana River road bridge to Spain, and only 140 kms to magnificent Seville. Also close by are the attractive port city of Vila Real de Santo António and seaside town of Monte Gordo, great spots to indulge in a little retail therapy or to watch the world go by over a glass of Portuguese wine. With three superb 9-hole courses at the resort and dozens of others within easy reach both along the Algarve and over the Spanish border, golfing enthusiasts are spoilt for choice here while families with older children or groups of friends will find it a perfect location for a relaxing break.

Lovely and quiet.The golf courses are testing but enjoyable.
The pool was good .
A pity the meal we booked in the restaurant had to be taken in the bar area,as a function the previous night meant it was closed.
Only one person trying to serve at the bar and take food orders,not impressive,although the food was good.

Beds Couple
The size of the villa is amazing and so too is the location and outside space. It has a commanding position on top of a hill overlooking the golf course and the clubhouse is less than a five minute walk away. Very peaceful.
The pool is a great size although the water was freezing cold, which put us off using it.
The decor inside is a little tired looking and basic, doesn't feel luxurious more functional.
Although room service is advertised and there is an outdated menu inside the villa, there is no telephone and on raising this with the clubhouse, was told that the Villa was outside of this service which is available for all other villas on site. Likewise there were instructions on how to use the safe but there was no safe inside as we were told it was, again, a villa outside the scheme.
There was no kettle inside but this was very quickly rectified by the staff.
Although a cleaning was advertised, this didn't happen during the two weeks we were there; just a twice weekly change of towels and bedding and some bloo put in the toilets.
The food at the clubhouse was excellent, big portions and excellent value.
I would recommend this villa for its size, outside space and location but I would enquire if there is any way the pool could be heated.

Kevin

Alsager Family (the eldest child is at school)
The staff at Castro Marim are first class, and were very helpful - especially since we had an early flight in and the villa wasn't supposed to be available until 4pm. The location isnt hugely populated, with around 60 villas - so relatively peaceful, and surround the central swimming pool.
The villa's don't offer a lot of external space, and depending where you are, your neighbours can be quite close (although we didnt have any problem).

Nice size villa for a family of four, well equipped and modern in decoration.

Swimming pool was a nice size, never crowded, and also able to get a sun lounger whilst the kids swim. Snack bar by pool was always serviced well, and they had live music on a Friday night.

The local beach was a 5 min drive away. Temperature in July/August averaged around 34 in the day, the aircon in the house was worth it! WiFi speed was good.

No complaints - look forward to a repeat stay in the future.
