“An excellent couple of nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for couple of nights to do a spot of bird watching and to explore the area. We were with friends and the weather was perfect. We were upgraded to a superior apartment which was located with great views and a balcony opening out onto a lawn overlooking the pools. It was very clean and quite comfortable, though we didn't spend much time inside. We would have liked a kettle, or a slightly larger saucepan to boil water for our tea and coffee. We're not sure about the 20 minute walk into town, as we took the path through the golf course and marshes, which is shorter, but took us over half an hour. The town had some splendid restaurants, with lovely fresh prawns and fish.

We ate at the hotel the second night, and for 15 Euros we ate well, a wide ranging buffet with unlimited wine! We were amazed how they could feed the hundreds so well, and where everyone came from, because our end of the resort, the club, was quiet and peaceful, and most of all, very, very reasonably priced. The staff, those that we saw, were all extremely efficient and obliging. We would be most happy to return to this resort.

Just got back from a short stay in El Rompido.

Location: Easy to get to from Faro airport. About a 15-20 minute walk into town in the evenings and their little train/bus service stops at 6pm (probably to encourage you to eat at the hotel!).

Rooms: We stayed in the apartments and for the most part they were great. Ask for an apartment at the end of the row as you get a massive balcony! Ours overlooked the first tee on the South Course and had a stunning view over out into the marshland and the bay.

Golf: We played the south course three times and the north course once. The south course was definitely more interesting. We hired a buggy for two rounds, which came with an excellent LCD touchscreen GPS system: very cool! Both courses were in very good condition and were always being maintained by ground staff. If you're staying on-site then golf is cheaper paying at the clubhouse each day rather than pre-booking online with any company.

Food: Very average. Breakfast was acceptable with the normal cooked food, meats, cheeses, breads, croissants etc. Lunch and dinner were quite disappointing though. Quite bland and mass produced. As it’s essentially “all you can eat” it’s OK value for €15, but you’d be better off getting something from one of the bars or going to “La Terazza” (the restaurant at the golf club). The quality in the Hotel restaurant was better, but still not worth €25. Two nights we ate in El Rompido at Dona Gamba, which was better value and much better quality.

Facilities: We used the Spa, which cost €10 if you weren’t staying in the hotel, which was good value. The gym is basic but functional. The pool areas were nice and quiet and the pool was rather fresh but very clean. The supermarket on-site is great and very good value.

All in all I’d definitely go back to the resort, mainly for the golf, but I wouldn’t bother with half or full board unless you prefer quantity over quality when it comes to your food.

As a side note: booking the holiday through Easyjet and getting rounds of golf on arrival was much cheaper than going through the golf tour operators and buying flights separately.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of the corridor: massive balcony and nice and quiet.

I stayed here for the Mail on Sunday golf tournament finals and I was very impressed. The hotel is modern and spacious, with a lovely atmosphere. It was too cold for us to swim but the pool area looked very nice and relaxing. The rooms were comfortable - nice big beds and a little balcony. Our shower wasn't perfect but was quite adequate and we had a bath, too - great for soothing the muscles after golf. We played the South golf course and watched the tournament on the North course and both were very good. The South course was slow as it's the easier of the two so seemed to have lots of hackers on it - but don't let that put you off, it's a lovely course and meanders round a nature reserve so very pleasant. The food was enjoyable and the staff were friendly. My only criticism is that the housekeeping was poor - the knock on the door was too early, things we didn't want thrown away were thrown away and things we did left out. I very rarely comment on housekeeping because it's usually so good at these quality resorts, but I think I had a rogue on my corridor! I expect that's not usual though and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and resort.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies overlooking the pool and some overlook the golf course. Rooms near the bar...

A golf trip with three friends and Rompido turned out the perfect venue. Good rooms, unlimited, quality, food at buffet dinner and breakfast and two testing golf courses. But the best bit was the pre-ordered open bar. No driving to worry about so Spanish gins and tonics, wines (it included the restaurant) and post prandial brandies and coffees were a great incentive for over indulgence. Unbeatable for a lads' trip away. We will be back. (Stock up the bar, Carlos!)

Room overlooking pool was well situated with good balcony. Good selection of excellent food especially fish. The big disappointment was the attutude of most of the bar staff some were surly and offhand if you were British they didn't want to serve you.

The hotel is situated between 2 golf courses El Rompido North and El Rompido South. They have a friendly staff. The rooms are well equiped and what counts most, very clean. The food is good.
