    “7 day golf break for 4”

    Hiya, this is the third year on the trot that I/we have been here (shows how much we like it!) So will get down to nitty bitty details. Firstly the great pluses are very many. As before the food is exceptional. (we're on fully inclusive which I think is a must ) You can eat yourself silly here ( drink too ) the standard is brilliant. Staff & facilities are second to none, I guess that's why so many people come back many times.I cannot express what a great place this is........ NB: It would be advisable to get accommodation on the golf course side, reverse side overlooks a bankrupt building site ( 9 years now ) Costs more but.......Get floor 3 or 4. Book at least 4/6 months in advance, this is one busy place. If you haven't got your own transport your here for the duration, the nearest town of interest is Jerez 9 km or Arcos 20km. No shops or eateries inbetween! ( Worse places to be though, for an all inclusive deal ) Couple of things the management could look at; the 'food' spread, although lavish, did not seem to be a comprehensive as last year. Furniture in bar is ready for the 'tip'! Distinctly shoddy, gets mega use needs changing. Sorry to mention irrelevant items but having been so often one notices theses things. However we are 100% coming again maybe later in September/October when it gets a little cooler. Same barman/waiters ets who remember you, nice touch. Another 4 yeses as they say! PS Good Wi-Fi everywhere, free.

    “Golfing holiday”

    We have been four times and still bit disappointed that swimming pools are not cleaned and opened in April! Staff very friendly and efficient. Some light entertainment in the evenings would be an advantage on this holiday as the hotel is pretty far from nearest village.

    “game of two halves”

    Superb hotel, exceptionally clean and the staff were always smiling and most helpful. The buffet breakfast was outstanding with an excellent variety of fresh fruit, healthy “smoothies” very wide selection of cooked dishes to choose from as well as a wide selection of breads and pastries. The restaurant staff were always attentive and dining facilities impeccable clean. The hotel room as, as to be expected of a five star hotel, well-appointed and the beds extremely comfortable, the views over the golf course and city of Jerez beyond were amazing. The Golf course was extremely disappointing. The conditions of the fairways were well below my expectations, having visited previously when this venue hosted the Volvo Masters in 1990. The fairways are in need of urgent attention for the removal of weeds and wild grasses that are everywhere and seeding of the many bare areas which, even with winter rules allowing placement of ball within a limited distance, still only allow for hitting off muddy areas. The teeing areas were more reminiscent of a municipal course with a lack of control over the limited areas to tee off whilst other areas should be rested and allowed to recover from the multitude of previous divots. No sand was available on any hole to refill newly created divots, or available for buggy users to carry. Unlike all championship standard courses I’ve played on, this course only use one colour of flag, red, to indicate the hole position. Therefore playing from an approach position, with many greens well elevated, no reference is given as to whether the hole is in the front, the middle or the back of the green, costing valuable shots to the proficient golfer. First time ever for me, the score card for this course has no reference to local rules whatsoever. For trolley pulling golfers, like myself, many green-side bunkers, extend from the green both left and right running close to the boundaries of the hole, denying walking access with their trolleys around the outer areas of the green, the consequence of which, I was forced to break common rules of golf by pulling my golf cart between the greenside bunkers and the putting surface. The greens, however, were exceptional and free of weeds or unwanted grasses. The bunkers, of which there are many, have no consistency in sand quality throughout the entire course. Lack of toilets on the course presents a problem for lady golfers, as was expressed to me on many occasions. With plenty of thick woodland the problem does not affect the male golfers in the same way. The practice area adequate, the driving range was wide and sufficiently long enough. The putting practice green is also adequate, however, the chipping green is very small and always seemed to be occupied by two or three golfers dominating available chipping positions. During seven days I was only able to access the chipping area once. The only toilet serving as a last minute relief for the first tee as well the driving range and practice area is a unisex toilet with two half door cubicles with no locks and two urinals in the same open area. Hardly what one would expect from this establishment. Having played golf for over fifty years and currently playing off 10 at the age of 71, I have always favoured walking a course for my health, to gather my thoughts and appreciate the greenery of its environment. This course did produce many surprises. There are many steep hills and valleys to negotiate. It is long with great distances between greens and tees, some of these being longer than some of the par fours. Even walking on the unmaintained, uneven buggy paths was punishing on the knees, feet and body. This course is most certainly aimed at motorised golf. On a positive note, the abundance of wild life, particularly around the water features, were pleasant surprises.

    “Golf weekend with Friends”

    The hotel is very remote from any other facilities. Evening in Jerez was 20 euro taxi ride. Breakfast food from hot tray was luke warm. Coffee was from a machine (not pleasant). Bar was well serviced. Tried to get a table in restaurant and they were fully booked hence going in to the city. Golf was excellent - pro shop very attentive.

    “Course in very good condition”

    Been to this hotel multiple times, good course was in great condition, greens and fairways excellent, the course is a little scruffy around the edges but not detrimental to the experience. The hotel needs a little TLC and the food selection needs expanding upon. This was going to be our last stay here as wanted to look at new venues however likely to come back based on quality of course improving
