About the property

Top golf and beach resort, one hour from Lisbon. Golf, beaches, pool.

Why come to Praia d'el Rey? It is beautiful! Peaceful! Real Portugal! Healthy! One of the best golf courses in Europe (Praia d'el Rey), plus the breathtaking already famous West Cliffs course and two other very high quality courses within ten minutes driving. Some of the best surf in the world (Google 'Supertubos'). Cheap delicious wine and seafood. Glorious beaches. Friendly locals.

Praia D’El Rey is Europe’s Leading Golf & Leisure Resort (World Travel Awards 2009), and Portugal’s top golf resort 2011 (World Travel Awards). The region (Silver Coast) has amazing sites of Portuguese heritage (eg Obidos, Alcobaca, Sintra), beautiful golden beaches, delicious seafood restaurants and local wine, and beautiful nature. The resort has 6 tennis courts and coaching available.

My place is a large, new home, with a balcony from every room. The property is on the second floor (one up from ground). There is a car parking spot in front. Perfectly manicured gardens and pool surround the apartment. Free WiFi.

Praia D’El Rey resort occupies an enviable position on the Atlantic coast, with superb surf beaches, sand dunes, beautiful pine forests and a wealth of sport and leisure activities. The area is much less crowded than the Algarve – so you can enjoy your holiday with less stress.

The 600 acre resort is an easy 1 hour drive north of Lisbon Airport, on the A8 motorway. It is West of the medieval fortress town of Óbidos and close to the picturesque fishing village of Peniche. Offshore lie the Berlenga Islands designated as a national nature reserve.

Activities include golf, tennis, surfing, swimming, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, diving and wind-surfing.

Surfing information: Baleal is 5km from the resort, and is known as the surfing capital of Portugal. Supertubos is 7km away, and holds one of the World Surfing Tour events each year. There are surfing schools in the area, and plenty of beach and reef breaks.

Golf: In addition to Praia d'el Rey, there are three other beautiful high quality courses within a 10 minute drive: Bom Sucesso, Royal Obidos (designed by Ballesteros) and Westcliffs. Westcliffs was completed in 2017 and was voted as the world's best new golf course! See here: (you may need to paste the link into your browser).

About Rod Bryant

Finance professional from New Zealand.

I have an extremely organised and reliable agency in Serra d'el Rey (the village you drive through just before the resort) who arrange pre-visit cleaning and key delivery. They are available for questions you may have during your stay.

Rod Bryant purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Rod Bryant chose Praia D'el Rey

This is a large, new, modern, quiet home in an excellent location in the resort. It is about 200m from the golf club, 100m from the tennis centre, the pool for the apartment is on the other side so there is no noise. The main road through the resort is on the other side so again there is no noise. It has many balconies and a peaceful view.

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The appartament was as described, large, comfortable with all the amenities needed. Huge living room and 2 bathrooms were perfect for our large family.

The swimming pool was really nice and warm, although after 5.30 p.m. it was already in the shadow.

The resort beach is a long walk away, so you definitely need a car to move around. The beach is dramatically beautiful but the waves are too big to swim. If you go with kids it better to visit Baleal which is 20 min away by car.

If you seek a quiet and not too hot area to relax, it is a perfect place :)

Avarage temperature in August was 21 degrees, with morning mist until 12-1 pm.

Rod was very helpful with all our questions, also the property manager reacted really fast when we needed help with TV.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Dominika. I am glad you had a good time. Regarding Baleal, I normally get there in 10-11 minutes, and the resort beach waves come and go. Regarding the weather, I have had many 35 degree days in August, and been sun burned even in October. The weather changes of course. I hope you come again.

Spacious, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (ages 13-52) had a very comfortable stay at Rod's apartment in Praia D'el Rey. Check-in with the property management company was easy even though we arrived later in the evening. The apartment was clean and the lounge/dining area was even bigger than it looked in the photos. We most appreciated the blackout blinds so that the sun didn't wake us up. The wifi was easy to access and more than fast enough for my needs. I think my 4 children pushed it to its limits if they were all trying to stream videos. My only (minor) complaint was that with tile floors, a big space, and only one rug, it could get loud in the main gathering area.

Within the resort, the apartment was located close to the entrance and to the Clubhouse. The Marriott was a little further away but just a 5 minute drive. The Beach Village (mini-market, gelateria, etc.) was further away with a 10 minute drive. The beach was uncrowded with spectacular waves and gorgeous fine sand. You need a car to really enjoy the area. There were plenty of restaurants, on and off the resort. The binder provided in the apartment listed a lot of local information as well.

Overall, it was a great stay, and we would highly recommend!

Lovely apartment, great pool, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by the quality of the apartment, it was nicely decorated and had all the promised amenities. The pool was fantastic for the kids and very close by. The location was good within easy distance by car to some lovely family friendly beaches and tourist sites. We had a thoroughly nice holiday here and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Great apartment, lovely resort, gorgeous region.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully equipped & situated, we were thrilled with Rod's apartment & the Silver Coast. When renting apartments for 6 in the past, we'd usually arrive & think, "hate to be squeezed in here in a group of 6". That was definitely not the case here; it was fantastic.

All 3 bedrooms are generous, the living/dining area huge & the kitchen spacious. Every room has a balcony except the bathrooms & the hall. The property has all you need & also has comprehensive info on supermarkets, restaurants, etc.

The wifi was quicker than mine. The tv had BBC1, 2, 4, ITV & all the news channels you'd get on a Sky package, as well as many local & international channels. We discovered that Portugal has indeed Got Talent.

We stayed late Summer; it was quieter in the resort than high season, I guess, but it meant that the pool was a private pool half the time. It's properly deep at one end (appreciated by swimmers), but plenty of shallow & also a waist deep shelf all the way around. Lots of sun-loungers.

The immediate surrounds were silent at night. It was a 2 minute drive to the clubhouse or the hotel. We only frequented the clubhouse, finding the two menus more than enough on our too-lazy-to-cook-or-drive nights. Take away menu too. People there (& throughout the region) were noticeably friendly, more so than the Algarve of which we are also fond.

The beach at the far end of the resort is endless, dramatically picturesque, backing onto low crumbling cliffs. It's lifeguarded, which meant I couldn't risk my life in the huge waves as the red flag was up. You'll find somewhere swimmable on one of Baleal's two beaches. Baleal is 15 mins away, dotey & seductively relaxed, we adored it. Surfing opportunities are everywhere too.

Google pics of Obidos & pick your favourite; it will still not come up to the loveliness of that town. We walked every lane and I walked all the ramparts (a bit hairy!) but we are left with the realisation that our photos just don't do it justice now. Be sure to have some Ginja in a chocolate cup (everywhere). We had a particularly memorable meal in Petrarum Domus, not least because we had to get a bridge to our table upstairs; so charming. We didn't have a bad meal out in about 20 attempts on this holiday. Obidos is a casual 20 minute drive away.

You will need a car unless staying solely on the resort. So much to see and do; can't fit half of it here.

We'll be back next year, so we'll tell you the other half then!

Thanks Rod!

O lugar perfeito para umas férias tranquilas.

  • 5 of 5

O resort é muito limpo, tranquilo e cheio de verde. O apartamento é luminoso, espaçoso e muito limpo. A piscina é muito agradável e os jardins estão perfeitamente cuidados.

Passámos uns dias realmente revigorantes.

O contacto com o proprietário é muito fácil e as suas respostas são muito rápidas.

Já resolvemos vamos voltar nas próximas férias por um período mais alargado.

A lovely quiet place perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The appartment totally corresponded to our expectations and to the description given by the host. Everything was very clean and well taken care of and all necessary information wa given before the stay. Support on location very good. I would defenitly recommend this property to a friend or relative. The resort where this appartment is located is wonderful and there is plenty to do and discover in the region

Praia d'el Rey
Car: recommended

Modern holiday home at a world class golf resort. This new apartment is in the exclusive Praia d'el Rey development, the best resort in the region and one of the best in Europe. It is a few minutes to the golf clubhouse, with its view and good food, is about 500 metres to an uncrowded golden surf beach. The tennis centre is about 150 metres away. Absolutely perfect for a cheap golf and beach break in Portugal.

Obidos and Peniche are the two nearest towns. Obidos, dating from 300 BC, is a medieval walled town with narrow streets and bougainvillea covered houses leading to the castle at the top of the hill. Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas islands (a national park) can be taken in summer (May to Sept). A castle, museum and excellent seafood restaurants complete the mix. Other interesting towns are Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha (with a delicious family, seafood restaurant) and Foz de Arrelho. Further afield are the religious shrine at Fatima, historic Coimbra, Sintra and of course Lisbon. Lisbon is only 1 hour away and is one of the gems of Europe.

I have Wi-Fi (internet) in my apartment. It is also available in the golf clubhouse and the Marriott main cafe.

Golf: The excellent coastal 18 hole championship golf course was ranked 1st in Portugal by the Peugeot Golf Guide. It is rated 13th in Europe and 80th in the world by Golf World. This apartment is only 300 metres from the clubhouse.

The course is very beautiful. It is on the coast (links style) for half of it, and through a pine forest for the other half. There are spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga Islands beyond. The par 72 is a good test for both the high handicapped golfer as well as the more advanced player. Each hole is very different.

There is great clubhouse with excellent practice facilities including a short game practice area. The clubhouse has a beautiful view for your post-round refreshments! There are very good English speaking professionals. Buggies / carts, trolleys and clubs are all available to rent. You will need an official handicap of 28 or less for men, 36 for ladies.

There are also other very good golf courses nearby - Bom Sucesso (10 minutes), Royal Obidos ( 10 minutes), Golden Eagle (30 minutes). You can have a wonderful Portugal golf holiday here, and it is so much more authentic and peaceful than the Algarve.
