The golf course is set in the picturesque countryside of the Eastern Algarve, with stunning views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. The course is completely diverse from anything you will have ever played before, with each hole blending effortlessly into the natural countryside, from ingeniously shaped and sculptured bunkers, to the impressive fairways and greens, which are bordered by several lakes. The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - opened for play in June 2007 and this par 72 Championship golf course is a compelling and inspiring design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes. Challenge yourself from the tournament tees and experience a truly unforgettable round!

Harpenden Family (the eldest child is at school)
Our Villa was absolutely perfect. Spotlessly clean, spacious, excellently equpped. Quiet and secluded location yet just a 10 minute drive to the goegeous Praia Verde. Monte Rei is most definately on the radar for future holidays.

Farnham Family (the eldest child is at school)
We have just returned from a week at Miradouro and we can't wait to go back. The house was beautifully clean and luxurious. I particularly appreciated the daily maid service.
The landscaped garden were gorgeous - we had a lovely view down to the pool.

We found everything to have been of a very high standard, a beautiful spacious villa in lovely surroundings.
Note- outdoor seating area seats 6- would have been handy to have had seating for 8 outside as the villa capacity is 8, but only a minor point.

Essex Family (with only pre-school children)
My husband, 3 year old son and I stayed at Villa Rei 38 for a week The villa was absolutely stunning, it was very comfortable, daily cleaners were superb. We were checked in by Anca, who made our stay absolutely welcomed, her service was outstanding and she ensured our stay was comfortable. Having a 3 year old toddler, we were not able to locate the front door key to lock the door so he couldn't open the door from inside, we asked Anca if she could locate the key for us, however this wasn't possible, however, within an hour she had arranged for a chain lock to be installed on the door so that our toddler would remain safe and not be able to get out the front door. This was just one example of many where Anca had made every effort to ensure our stay was comfortable.

We have rated the stay as 8 overall purely on the location and facilities at the resort. The resort we found to be fairly remote and very quiet. We were often the only people dining in the restaurants or sitting at the communal pool. Also, the resort, in our opinion, would highly benefit from having an onsite supermarket where at a minimum essential supplies such as bread, water, milk etc, can be purchased. Whilst we had hired a car, we would have preferred not to have had the added pressure of having to leave the resort to purchase food and drinks. Whilst the resort is primarily designed for golfing, we believe the resort would also benefit by having a few more facilities for children, such as outdoor play area and a children's splash pool, as often families visit golf resort. Whilst the resort is undergoing future development, currently the choice of eateries is very limited, mainly with only 2 restaurants to choose from for dinner with limited dishes, primarily fish dishes.

We would like to give Anca a special thank you for all her support and help during our stay. We would certainly visit Monte Rei again, however more likely once the resort has developed further in its facilities. Regardless of this, we still had a superb holiday! And would recommend for those who are looking for a peaceful on quiet vacation.
