Eurotel Altura Golf Hotel: A Comprehensive Review
Small groups of golfers, often a fourball, are increasingly looking for new experiences and there are few better places to go for a week’s golf than Portugal which is so accessible to large population areas in North and West Europe. Regional flights into the Algarve’s airport at Faro have brought the area’s golf courses to everyone’s attention. This is a fairly compact region and with car rental easy to arrange online, it is just a matter of deciding where to stay and where to play.
When it comes to accommodation, one place that is located close to many courses is the Eurotel Altura Golf Hotel.
One of the beauties of this hotel is it provides all the services that golfers need on their holiday:
- Tee times booked.
- Equipment storage services
- Special rates
The facilities in the hotel include spa and fitness centre, bar and restaurant; just a great relaxing atmosphere once golf is finished for the day.
There are several excellent courses within minutes from the hotel so its location is ideal
- Quinta da Ria
- Quinta de Cima
- Castro Marim
- Monte Rei
- Quinta do Vale
The region itself is known for its beaches, natural environment for walkers and bird watchers and for the activities that are available such as windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing which are easily arranged within the Hotel. Fishing and jeep safaris, amusement parks and beaches offer a break from golf, if required while the cuisine of the Algarve is a real pleasure in the hotel’s Atlantico Restaurant. Local seafood plays a prominent role, tapas is a speciality and the local wine is certainly something to sample as an accompaniment.
Children with more simple tastes are well served with such things as burgers and pizzas in the Varanda while mum and dad are more adventurous. It means that a golf party will find golf courses close at hand while if everyone is travelling with the family, there is loads to do for non-golfers while players are away at the course and plenty for families can do all together when the golf is finished.
There is plenty of competition for tourist money these days and Portugal certainly seems to be able to hold its own, helped in no small way to the convenience of Faro Airport. Eurotel Altura has made its mark and those thinking of going to Portugal should look at its facilities closely.
