Set along a beautiful sandy beach less than one hour from Lisbon, in an area of protected rural landscape of rolling sand dunes and pine tree forests, Praia D'El Rey Golf & Beach Resort is an oasis of relaxed style and world-class comforts created to reflect the unspoiled natural beauty of its location. Literally translated as 'Beach of the King', you will be amazed by how close the beach is to the properties on the resort and by all of the fantastic facilities that are on offer! 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.

The villa itself was very pleasant and the service we received from James Villas was, as always, excellent.

However the pool was not filled until 6 days after our arrival (7 day holiday) which was the only reason we booked the holiday.

I phoned James Villas on Day 2 who immediately phoned the resort to try to resolve so I cannot fail their customer service whatsoever. JV were assured the pool would be filled on Wednesday (day 3, this did not happen) and that we may utilise another pool ~150m away.

My mum had breast cancer last year and the medicine she takes now effects her legs so much she is semi wheelchair dependant. However, though this extra distance was not ideal, mum really wanted to swim as gentle exercise is very important so we took the wheelchair.

This pool was not heated whatsoever and too cold to utilise. There were several guests complaining so we didn’t bother again, however each of these guests had been promised that the heating would be on, but day after day it was not.

Not to be dramatic but this whole thing kind of ruined our holiday to a great extent. This was a 70th Birthday treat for my mum. It was the first time we’d been on holiday together and we’d spent a lot of time and money on it. The pool was absolutely the most important thing to us and we’ve been left very disappointed.

A truly 5 star villa, pool heating worked very well. Very clean with all equipment we needed. The central heating kept the villa very comfortable on cooler evenings. Only downside is the urbanization where it is located, as we don't play golf there was nothing within walking distance other than the Marriot hotel. You do need a car and have to drive to everywhere.

It would be useful to have some cleaning products and bin bags in the house if you expect it to be kept clean.

Very good villa. Car required due to location but we knew that before we booked. Shame about the sea fog during our week - ended up with just one day of sun. Lovely little villa not far from other resorts; perfect for dinner or days out to the beach

Camberley Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely villa. A little more utensils needed in the kitchen such as a bread knife. Some of the lights did not work out side and the shutters to keep out flys were broken. However overall we had a lovely time the villia was a good size and very comfy

ST Albans Family (the eldest child is at school)
Spacious and well equipped. Great location in the village and very close to the pool.
Dehumidifiers were noisy and you had to empty daily (not advised of this and alarms kept going off).
Lots going on however car is essential as no centre with all facilities close together ie had to drive to the beach, tennis courts, supermarket and restaurants

West Midlands Family with grown up
Lovely villa, close to the sea and well equipped. The villa is not at the location as indicated on the James Villa app, you need to follow the written instructions carefully. There is only one restaurant within walking distance, and this did not open on Sunday or Monday when we were there the last week in August.
