“So relaxing watching the golfers”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

I booked Casa Tini (number 44) via Villa Parade for 1st September for my wife and I plus my wife's sister and partner. It was the most relaxing week we have ever spent abroad. The Gramacho site is perfectly clean and well maintained. Our villa had a magnificent south westerly garden overlooking the 14th green and 15th Tee. I'm not a golfer but watching from that vantage point was brilliant. I hooked up a hammock between two of the garden palms and just chilled with a cool beer, occasionally taking a dip in the pool. The owner has built a nice little veiwing gallery into the rockery facing the golf course if you don't have a hammock though. As the villa is located on a corner of a cul de sac, it had a very wide well manicured garden, so there is enough space between the adjoining villa's to provide good privacy.

We felt very secure on the Gramacho site after I accidentally tripped the alarm while leaving the villa one day and a security officer arrived within one minute to make sure everything was ok.

We ventured out to the local beaches and coves which are outstanding. I'll be returning to the Carvoeiro area for sure but I'll probably book directly with villa owners next time as the prices are much cheaper. One thing I've learned is to book my flight several months in advance and leave the villa until a week or so before departure. I've always been lucky enough to get a greatly reduced rental while still getting a good quality villa this way.

Pestana Golf Resort Gramacho is a near perfect location for all golf lovers. But even for anyone who doesn't plays golf, this resort has all the ingredients to a fantastic stay: beautiful landscapes, really nice accommodations in fantastic villas and apartments and at some short distance, by car, to beautiful beaches in sunny and warm Algarve. For anyone who wants to get rest, comfort at affordable prices, this is a place to choose for one of the best golf resorts in Algarve.

Fabulous upmarket golf resort, great golf, location and facilities. Some staff excellent(especially Luis) but marred by some more surly staff. Bottles of white wine always served WARM even when you ask for chilled. Recommend Thursday night barbecue night, good evening and great value. BUT, don't always get a great product, today my omelette was served with a large piece of broken glass sitting on top! Not good at all.

Golf in the Algarve can be expensive, however most clubs offer a reasonable price after 4 pm.
You wont be disappointed with Gramacho its a very good course. Some very attractive holes. A real test of golf.
Good club house and good food .
Golf in the Western Algarve need not break the bank.

Reviewed 19 June 2010

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa on the Pestana Gramacho golf resort overlooking the Vale de Pinta course next door. The villa was excellent with a decent size pool and well tended gardens. The resort is inland, a minimum of 10 minutes from the beach by car, but there are several good beaches nearby and many pleasant seaside villages close by. We liked the beaches at Caneiros, Pintadinho and particularly Praia de Molhe, which has a safer sheltered sea and is great for exploring if you walk westward around the headland at low tide.

Gramacho is very close (5 mins by car) to the largest water park in the Algarve, Slide and Splash, which we went to twice because the kids (and adults!) enjoyed it so much.
