A couple of client reviews before you read about our apartment:

Mr M Jennings-

We have visited Carvoiero many times but never stayed at the Pestana Golf Resort. Arriving on Friday the 1st Sept 2017 to a beautiful ground floor apartment walking distance to the reception area. The doorbell rang & there was Steve (the owner) with a welcoming bottle of wine.

The facilities in the apartment were superb and Steve passed on some very useful information and advice.

It was so peaceful, just what we wanted and we soon relaxed as we lounged around on the lovely grass area immediately in front of the apartment. The tree provided welcome shade when you needed it to.

The pool, just two minutes walk from the apartment was both immaculate and quiet...a pleasure to swim in.

The golf facilities are first class and highly recommended for those who only play occasionally without handicaps etc.

We would highly recommend this lovely apartment and want to thank Steve for his advice. I hope we will be able to return in the near future.....

Mrs Jo Davies-

We had a fabulous holiday. The apartment is really well equipped and is perfectly placed to enjoy golf, relax by the pool or enjoy lunch at the clubhouse. The owners were really helpful and provided all relevant information prior to our break. We will certainly be returning soon.......

This beautiful ground floor two bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment ideally suited for a family of 4 or 2 couples is located in a block of 3 apartments and is set amongst superbly maintained gardens and within walking distance of the resort's facilities. Furnished to the highest standards, guests can enjoy a truly relaxing holiday, whether playing a round of golf or relaxing by one of the communal pools. You will find every amenity you need in this apartment. The large open plan living room comes with comfy seating, TV offering Sky and a dining area for 4 people. The spacious kitchen is fully fitted enabling guests to prepare anything from a light snack to a gourmet dinner. There is an electric/gas oven/hob, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. There are two bright and airy bedrooms that are tastefully decorated. One bedroom offers twin beds and an en suite bathroom, the second has a king size bed. There is also a family shower room.

Fabulous apartment with equally great & helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of an apartment in a beautiful golfing holiday complex! It is well equipped and spacious with a lovely patio area. We were worried it didn't have air conditioning but being shaded by a large tree and with mesh on the large bedroom doors the windows could be kept open all the time, a bit like luxury camping! Stephen the owner was very friendly & trustworthy & I'd recommend booking directly through him & saving yourselves £70 odd! We didn't but you live & learn. Strongly recommend this apartment close to everything by car but not as touristy mad as our next apartment where I'm texting this from.

Excellently presented apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellently presented with all our needs for a great holiday, conveniently located to the swimming pool, clubhouse and mini market. Short drive to some of the best beaches on the algarve if it's too hot for playing golf. We would recommend this apartment to holiday makers of all ages.

Excellent stay with young family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights with a 10 month old baby. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need and very comfortable. The location is excellent with a grassed area outside the patio area to relax and play on. The gramacho resort feels very secure and the bar / restaurant is also useful, well staffed and reasonably priced. There is a supermarket within walking distance and also a larger one within 5-10 minute drive.

We had an excellent stay and would definitely return and recommend the apartment.

Owners also very helpful with good information and restaurant recommendations etc...

Spacious and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 10 days beginning 25th September 2015. We found it to be quite spacious and very comfortable with good sunbathing facilities on the patio and garden outside. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and the kitchen had everything in it that you would need for a self-catering holiday. We visited the (heated) pool, which is a two-minute walk away, every morning and found it to be really clean and well maintained with excellent changing facilities. We also visited the golf club, which is a four minute walk away, on a regular basis and found the food to be very good and the staff to be really friendly. To get the best out of the area, I would recommend hiring a car as there are some lovely beaches and restaurants just a short drive away. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and intend to return again next year.

The apartment was as described and everything worked as it should. The host was very efficient in communicating.

The location is excellent if you have a car. Beautiful beaches and restaurants easy to access within minutes of the resort.

Highly recommend.

Lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful area. We are familiar with Carvoeiro but loved Gramacho. The apartment was clean, spacious, comfortable and very well equiped for our family. The communal pool was also very well maintained and convenient for the apartment. The estate is secure and has everything that we needed. The clubhouse was great for drinks and dinner - we loved the Thursday night BBQ! The owners were extremely helpful and keen to ensure that we had everything that we needed for a successful holiday.

Car hire is essential to make the most of the area and visit the beautiful beaches.

I would definitely recommend the apartment and hopefully we will be returning in the future! Thank you!

Located 45 minutes from Faro Airport, Pestana Golf Resort is a high quality resort on a beautiful 500 acre site and features two well known golf courses, namely Gramacho and Pinta. The popular, vibrant seaside resort of Carvoeiro is within a short drive. The town is dominated by a combination of whitewashed houses and villas boasting both Moorish and traditional Portuguese architecture and offers a good choice of bars and restaurants. There are also numerous local sandy beaches within a few minutes drive. Nearby there is also a water park, Zoo Marine, the busy resorts of Portimao and Albufeira and not too far away are the Monchique Mountains.

Golf: Two quality golf courses are on the doorstep. Gramacho a unique 6,107 metre 18 hole course designed by Nick Price. There are plenty of natural hazards and from the first stroke off the tee to the final green, the player must not just play the ball well but also adopt the best strategy to achieve an optimum result. Vale da Pinta a 6,115 metre course has earned a deserved reputation as a challenging course to golfers of all standards. This course will be appreciated by experienced golfers providing genuine excitement and a memorable and enjoyable days play. Also on the resort is the Pestana Golf Academy and driving range. At the academy you can choose from a wide range of courses from beginner to the more experienced golfer.
