“Review of Alcaidesa golf links course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

Nice clubhouse. Golf carts don't always have enough charge to get you past the 17th green. Challenging course with some jungle between tee and fairway. Popular with Germans. Good views of Gibraltar.

“Frightening”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012 via mobile

We stayed one night in Alcaidesa, with 24 hours golf included and whilst the golf was good, this resort is a classic example of Spanish over building. We stayed August 22, high season, no cars in the streets and many full blocks of appartments with no signs of life. Several buildings unfinished and probably have been in that state for months. We struggled to find a restaurant open, the only sign of life was the German Hotel down at the beach. If you are looking for personal space on the beach then this could be the resort for you.

“My favourite place in Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2008

We bought an apartment in Alcaidesa last year and it has been fantastic. The area is lovely, on the Costa Del Sol (about 1 hour drive to Marbella) but still very Spanish.

The beach is very special with white sands for miles. You can walk all the way to Gibraltar - we did it!! The only sunbeds are just next to the beach bar in Alcaidesa, apart from those you only see a scattering of Spanish families that come to the beach after the siesta.

The beach bar cook all their food on the charcoal BBQ. It really is first class!

Alcaidesa is also superb for golf. The Alcaidesa Links golf course is the only Links course in Andalucia and the newly opened Heathlands course is "championship standard" - very challenging!

Apart from Golf and beach there is all the culture and possibility for activities round about. Gibraltar is 15 min drive away and if you fancy kitesurfing/surfing Tarifa is about 25 min drive. Not to mention all the nice places along the Costa del Sol.
