This 18 hole course covers some 90 hectares, designed by Arnold Palmer. As one of the best and most sophisticated golf courses in Europe, every care has been taken to ensure the preservation of the wetlands and the typical vegetation of carob, olive and almond trees. Several lakes, occupying 13 hectares, provide mirrors of water and strategic reservoirs for irrigation. The course features 5 or 6 tees per hole; wide, undulating fairways; extensive water hazards and cleverly positioned bunkers. In addition there is an exceptional driving range and a putting green of some 2,500m².

Lauren

Sussex Family (the eldest child is at school)
Spacious and well kept, our two-bed apartment at Victoria Residences II ticked pretty much all of the boxes we'd hoped it would. Two bathrooms between the three of us and plenty of living space, including a balcony overlooking the golf course, made it a welcome place to come back to after a day spent basking by the large free-form outdoor pool. The furnishings were of a high enough standard, if a little dated, and the kitchen was exceptionally well equipped, with everything you could need to create a gourmet feast – if you're the sort that can be bothered with that kind of thing during a relaxing break. Even the minibar-style 'essentials' box in the kitchen was reasonably priced. If I were to think of a negative, I'd like to have seen our towels cleaned more regularly; I'm not convinced the ones we placed in the bath were always changed despite us having been told we would receive clean towels every day. There was also some confusion over checkout time, which was slightly annoying as we were on a late flight, but I'm sure we could have been more communicative with this issue too.
