Top Golf Hotels In Portugal: Staying At Formosa Park

The popularity of the Algarve with golfers, many coming from the UK, has led to the development of a golf tourist infrastructure in a region that became a regular destination for sun-seekers as soon as regular regional flights made Portugal so accessible. The beaches are stunning and the sea welcoming. Golfers began coming almost 50 years ago; they were attracted by the chance to play all year round when at home winter golf was either impossible or if courses were open, their condition was poor. How nice to enjoy some sunshine, almost guaranteed. The peak summer months are still the busiest but golfers can choose their season.

There is plenty of accommodation that welcomes groups of golfers. Formosa Park is just a few miles from Faro Airport, the airport for the whole region with flights from a huge number of regional destinations. A quick transfer from airport to hotel is clearly a plus point for golfers, especially as there are good courses nearby. There are fully equipped apartments, one and two bedroom overlooking landscaped gardens, the pool and the Atlantic Ocean. Internally each apartment as TV, Wi-Fi, telephone and air-con. Each is cleaned daily and linen is changed regularly.

The Flamingo Room is available for hire; events for up to around 50 people can easily be arranged. The Restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, snacks throughout the afternoon and an a la carte menu for dinner. Arcos Bar opens at 1100 and serves drinks until midnight.

Guests can expect assistance with their golf requirements as well as a range of services and facilities including:

  • 24 hour reception
  • Airport transfers
  • Business and conference facilities
  • Car rental services
  • Babysitting facilities
  • Private parking
  • Luggage storage

The closest golf course is Pinheiros Altos bordering the Ria Formosa Nature which in itself is worth a visit. There are excellent practice facilities and there are 27 holes which can be played in different combinations. The Hotel offers a shuttle service to this and the San Lorenzo Course which is also one of the most highly rated in the region. It is worth contacting reception in advance so that it knows the demand. Seats cannot be pre-booked but every effort is made to satisfy that demand.

Discerning travellers are regularly selecting the Algarve for holidays as well as golf. They seek good hotels and one of the accommodation alternatives worth further investigation is Formosa Park which has all the facilities that would be expected of good modern accommodation.
