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.

Whilst cleaner visited every 3 or 4 days and replaced towels and toilet rolls, they did not sweep floors. Sun loungers were uncomfortable. Golf resort was excellent

Prudhoe Family (the eldest child is at school)
Our villa was well equipped- the only things it could have done with were oven gloves and a sieve in the kitchen.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and we couldn't have asked for more.
Outside space was good but could have done with a little extra space at the back of the villa plus comfy mattresses for the sun loungers.

Chelmsford Family (the eldest child is at school)
Amazing! The best villa we have been to. The shared pool was wonderful. No competition for a sun bed. The kids club was so well thought out and well run. The children could come and go back to their parents accompanied by the staff. The whole complex felt very safe and the staff were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The staff at the snack/ bar were really welcoming and worked very hard and the food was very tasty.
The villa was immaculate and very clean and modern. The cleaning staff were in every other day.
It was so good to have a washing machine as it ensures that you go home without a pile of dirty laundry.
We would recommend this complex to all.
The one thing that I would advise is to make sure that you have a car. Villa Real is a drive away, not far, about a fifteen minute drive, but you couldn't walk it.
In Villa Real you can then take the ten minute ferry trip over to Spain for tapas which is very exciting for the children!!!
There are not lots of English tourists, so you have the feeling of being one of the locals which is rather lovely.
We had a wonderful holiday and would return in a heartbeat!!!

Family (the eldest child is at school)
A little bit far out from the main resort, definitely need a car. Very quiet complex. The Villa itself was well equipped with nice décor and great views. However, there was no information pack in the Villa. There was no safe in the Villa and the tumble dryer did not work. The service and food was variable, great in the restaurant but the Hole in One Bar lacked atmosphere. The barbecue night in the bar was very poor as the food was cold and had been pre made. The bar did not have the necessary ingredients to make cocktails, even though there was a cocktail menu.

This is a fabulous villa which is beautifully furnished and well equipped. The pool and outside are spacious and furnished well. My only negative comment would be that it would of been nice to have a 'house manual' listing operating instructions for washer/dryer (yes there are manuals but they are in Spanish) also the fuse switch for the hot water was turned off and after the first day we had no hot water ... managed to sort it ourselves though.
