Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was looking to organise a trip for 20 golfers in the Algarve and asked Lesters Golf to see what they could do. From pick up at the Airport to three rounds of golf, accommodation, dinner and all bus transfers it was a perfect holiday.
Every single detail was covered and made my duties simple.
Lester and Clare were brilliant.

My wife and I spent a week in Vilamoura playing golf and having lessons with Peter. Honestly can't recommend Peter Lester's golf school highly enough. We both gained so much from our lessons, easy to follow, individual to each golfer, it has transformed our game. Also our whole experience of booking from start to finish was so easy and smooth. From hotel to transfers, booking our golf and not forgetting our lessons all went perfectly. Can't recommend enough, we will definitely be back! Thank you Peter and to your wife for all the organising.

What a great team these two are.
We have booked our accommodation and golf through Clare at the Four Seasons for the past few years. Everything has always gone incredibly smoothly, the accommodation the golf and the transfers. She is one lovely lady and nothing, but nothing is ever too much trouble. She takes all the stress out of organising your holiday, and when you are actually there and in situ, she is always checking that you are happy with everything.
I cannot recommend her highly enough - and we hope to back there next year again.
Gabby Rigby.

Peter is very personable, accommodating and provides insight in a variety of ways to help you understand your golf swing and how it impacts the way you strike the ball. He assesses your swing and then provides guidance on how best to adjust your grip, posture or swing path etc. -whatever he sees that might need adjustment - to help you improve your ball striking. He uses a variety of techniques to show you what you are doing from setup, swing path, club head at impact and follow through and how to make any adjustments to improve your ball striking. My wife and I both had 11 weekly 90 minute lessons during the winter of 2023 and we both were extremely satisfied with his approach and the results we achieved with his guidance. We look forward to returning for more lessons next winter.

My husband and I spent 11 weeks in Portugal this winter and were fortunate enough to have a lesson each week with Peter. I have to say Peter has the patience of a saint and I am sure we tested him. Peter is a very skilled teacher and finds a way to ensure each person understands and grasps the fundamental elements required. I have had the opportunity to play on a couple of occasions in Ontario upon return and am more than happy with the changes to my game. I am looking forward to continuing to improve my game based on the knowledge and skill I gained from my lessons with Peter. I would highly recommend Peter Lester’s golf school to anyone who is planning a trip to Vilamoura Portugal

I signed up for a week's golf camp for expert tuition, quality golf courses, great grass practice facilities and some winter sun. That's what I got, it was fabulous.

Peter was brilliant, there's a knack in quickly assessing a person's swing, pinpointing immediate improvements and those that need to wait for a day or so to tackle. We went through the whole bag over the week and in every facet of the game I learned, learned learned - not just the swing thoughts but game thoughts.

This was a bucket list type of experience to try and it delivered. Here's to getting my handicap back into single figures in the season ahead.

Prior to our arrival at Vilamoura, I booked a couples lesson with Peter based solely on Trip Advisor reviews. Not knowing exactly what to expect, and given the cost of the lesson, we were somewhat apprehensive while waiting to rendezvous. However, Peter proved to be Personable, knowledgeable, and an excellent instructor. During our session he analyzed our swings and offered each of us (individually) three specific points upon which to focus, which would give us the best return on our investment. By the end of the session, we could already notice the difference. In addition to Peter’s technical advice, we very much enjoyed just spending time with him.

Wow - Peter Lester really is "The King of Swing" Booked direct through Peter a 5 session Beginner/Intermediate tuition for me and my friend, me being the Beginner/Hacker and my friend more of a intermediate golfer, what can I say Peter is a genuinely nice engaging guy who has tremendous patience (especially with me), not only did he completely get my problems he undid all of my previously learned bad habits and introduced me to a new set of rules that fit my physicality and mobility, Peter also had the knack of keeping a watchful eye on what I was getting up to when he was engaged with my friend and vice versa, at the end of the week 5 nights(10hrs Coaching) which seemed about we both came away better golfers thinking why had we not thought about this before, Peter fixed both of our swings through all the clubs in the bag bar. Peter/Clare organised everything accommodation (B&B at 4 Seasons) airport transfers and of course the golf coaching - Money well spent and thoroughly enjoyable, _ will we be going back for more absolutely..
