Praia D'El Rey is the perfect resort for couples, families and groups of friends!


Praia d'el Rey golf course opened in June 1997 and it is certainly one of the most picturesque layouts in Europe, set in extensive grounds of pine forest and undulating dunes with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga Islands beyond. Cabell B. Robinson has designed the course to be the complete golfing challenge with bold deep bunkers, undulating greens, and natural sand border areas contrasting sharply with the lush green fairways. With an academy, short game and driving range facilities available, you can fine tune your skills as well!

Wokingham Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely spacious villa, well equipped.
Pool looked lovely, but was missing several tiles (more than 20) leaving some sharp edges which sadly left cuts on feet. Additionally the decking was lifting with screws sticking up, again causing a foot hazard. We reported these issues on the second and again in the third day of our holiday, but nothing was done to rectify until the last day (instead we purchased our children water shoes for the pool to protect feet from further cuts and I spent the best part of an hour screwing down the decking). Quite annoying at how little James Villas did to help.

Newport Family with 2 teenagers
The villa was great - clean and well appointed. Lots of space for our family. The resort is close to the beautiful beach- a real bonus.(5 min drive from the villa). The location was quiet not overlooking the pool.The bed linen and towels were changed part way through our stay(10 days).

Casa Azul

Glasgow Family (the eldest child is at school)
The property has most of the required amenities to enjoy a good holiday. The location within the Dom Sebastiao complex was ideal with the pool right outside. Some of interior / exterior furniture and items need to be repaired / replaced (can provide more details). The main priority being the mattress of the double bed which was very uncomfortable exasperating my back problem.

Family (with only pre-school children)
The villa was lovely. We did not like looking out of our window to find the pool man in the garden without confirming it was ok to come onto the premises. My 7 year old was playing and I value her safety. It would have been nice for him to knock and ask if it was ok. We were in the pool when another man came onto the premises spraying the garden, again, to be asked would have been nice. Check out on the Saturday is 10am, the pool man was there at 8.36 cleaning the pool. We should have been able to use the pool up until 10 as we had paid for it until then, again, there he was, just turning up in the garden. There is no excuse for it, common curtesy wouldn’t have gone a miss. Unfortunately, on the Thursday a loud family turned up behind us who were loud late into the night. Only because of this we probably wouldn’t book again, it’s a shame because the villa itself is lovely. We would just prefer somewhere a little quieter.

Whilst a lovely villa the area lacks any soul. It is a very clinical complex and has very little of offer of an evening.
The beach is excellent and well worth a visit.
