Low-rise and sea-facing, the hotel makes the most of its stunning coastal location. With large picture windows in all the public areas framing views of the Atlantic, it creates the feeling that you’re on a non-moving ocean liner. The decor is smart and sophisticated without being overly memorable, although the Moorish-style courtyard entrance gives a passing nod to the country’s heritage. The superb links course is a golfer’s delight and is as challenging to play as it is spectacular to look at — think Scotland with sunshine.
Bed and Bath
Golf or Ocean View rooms all have floor-to-ceiling French windows and balconies to make the most of the vista. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and clutter-free, and the one-size-fits-all concept — neutral decor, pullout sofabed, work desk — makes them suitable for golfing pals and busy executives as well as vacationers.
The star attraction is the championship golf course. Set in an expanse of pine forests and undulating dunes, the links course overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and the Berlenga Islands. There’s a golf academy on-site, and the main putting green is one of the biggest in Europe. Active types who aren’t into golf have access to indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, football facilities and a spa and gym. The Atlantico Grill is the hotel’s casual all-day dining facility, offering a range of Portuguese and international cuisine. For dinner, Romy serves a modern Mediterranean menu, while bar options include the Cliffs Bar, the Ocean Lounge and the summer-only Sharx Pool Bar.
How to Get There
Amazing place, the view, all enviroment, the staff, the food and special also for kids ( a dedicate spacr for them) . Tibete is different lounges and bar ( what define the enviroment) and the food is very good ( snacks or dinner).
Really great resort straight on the Atlantic coast. Spacious rooms, amazing views to the ocean and sunset. I didn't find any negative issue. Superb location among fantastic golf courses - try all of them if you can: Praia D El Rey, West Cliffs, Royal Obidos, Bom Sucesso. Hotel provides free shuttle, the farthers distance is about 20 minutes (to Bom Sucesso). All the staff is unbelievably polite and helpfull !!! Thank you all :-)
While the main draw at this resort is golf, we enjoyed our stay without hitting the green as this property has much more to offer. Stunning views of the ocean and great walking trails as well as a beach running the length of the property provided plenty of opportunity to unwind and relax.
The staff was exceptional; very friendly and helpful even during a busy time. The spa was also very good. Try and get a room with an ocean view/balcony as one of the best features was falling asleep to the sound of the waves.
Highly recommend on its own or as a short trip from Lisbon as it is only about an hour away by car.
Stayed in some apartments as part of a golf trip. Was a good base for golf but was very, very quiet as lots of the Villas were unoccupied. At times felt like we were in a Sci Fi movie where everybody had disappeared. Beds were not that comfortable and in March the pool was far too cold to use. The apartments were nice enough, but we would have benefited in having an information booklet in the apartment.
We ate on site and the food was reasonable. About a 10 minute from our apartment in Zone 7. The staff were friendly. You can phone for shuttles but had to use the mobile as there was no phone in the apartment. There was satellite TV. We didn’t discover the shop near the beach until the last day, but that many have been the result of non stop golf and drinking.
Loved the Pria Del Rey Golf course, next to the sea with superb views and a good golf challenge. The greens were very good. Would love to play this course again and would consider returning for another golf trip.
The service here is beyond what I have ever experienced. We arrived just as the sun was setting and Paulo took us to a great vantage point so that we would not miss it. Rui upgraded our room and was so helpful with all of the information regarding the property. I came down with a sore throat while staying and Iris at breakfast offered to make me a special tea with lemon, ginger, and honey which really helped. The resort itself is breathtaking with awesome views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beach. The pool outside was not heated in March but they had a lovely pool inside the hotel which was quite big and had a lane set aside for laps. The rooms were spacious and spotless and we had a balcony overlooking the ocean. The beds were super comfortable. Housekeeping did a great job every day. The room also had a mini fridge and a safe. There were two golf courses nearby. The breakfast buffet was really wonderful and served in a lovely space with windows looking out to the ocean - too many choices to mention Also had great coffee machines serving different specialty coffees. The great room had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean and the food and service was great. Patricia served us in the great room and surprised us with a cherry liquor served in a small chocolate cup which is a local specialty drink. Everyone working at the resort was very welcoming and genuine - we left as friends.
