We booked a golf break for our silver wedding anniversary. We were thrilled on arrival, a bottle of chilled champagne was in our room which also had been decorated with rose petals. We had fabulous views overlooking the swimming pool and golf course. The breakfast was amazing and because we found the food so good, we did not venture out in the evenings and ate in the hotel. The staff were so polite and helpful, especially Sonia in Guest relations. The golf course was superb but make sure you have plenty of mosquito repellent on. This was our first visit to the Penina but we will certainly be returning. It surpassed all our expectations.

Just returned from a three day break with three friends at Penina and we cannot speak highly enough of this resort. Firstly the Professional at my golf club told me that it was a 'proper golf course' and he was right. Although a Championsip course it gives the club golfer a chance as the fairways are generous and the greens are not ridiculously sloped or fast. They are fast and true and difficult enough. The course was in magnificent condition throughout and it was a pleasure to play there. The only minor criticism is the cost of the buggies which was 40 euros a round. The hotel is excellent as it should be for a five star. The breakfast was the best I have come across in hotels. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful in both the hotel and those handling the golf. They certainly give you 5 star treatment. We will be returning there next year as this is the best golf holiday we have had. I must also mention the cost. A three night stay with breakfast, three rounds on the Championship Course with transfers to/from the airport cost just £225 (plus flights of course). Brilliant value for money.

Just returned from a 3 night 3 round golfing break. Must admit we had a great time which was helped by the current good weather they are having at the moment.
In summary, 2 good courses with the championship having some lovely holes, rooms were very clean and to a good standard if a little small, food was over prices and not to a particularly good standard. We ate 3 times after our rounds, mainly snacks such as burgers, salad, wraps etc 12-14 euro was very steep.
Advice, grab a cab and take a look round Alvor, plenty of bars and some lovely seafood restaurants, 10 euro for a taxi.

This was our second visit this year to Penina, it never fails to live up to our expectation, the staff are always welcoming and friendly and it is so nice that they keep the same staff year after year and they take great pride in their work.
Playing the golf course is a delight, the greens are really good and every hole is a different challenge and then on finishing having a welcome drink at the Henry Cotton is the end to a perfect round.
We eat at the Grill Room on our last night, the meal was the best we had eaten all holiday with a lovely choice of dishes and wine, what a lovely way to end our stay.
