Fuengirola 2018

Karl,

Thanks for your email on our return. Only just saw it as I’m having issues with hot mail account. Excellent trip last week to Spain. All my travelling companions were well impressed with how smoothly and easily everything went. Hotel was excellent, Bus transfer co were very obliging and all transports were spotless. Golf also very enjoyable thankfully. As all were so impressed with the trip it has been suggested to look into the original Portugal trip for next year.
Many thanks again,
Jeremy 
Mar Menor 2018

Ross,

Just a quick note to say many thanks once again for organising a great golf trip. Apart from the one hiccup with the golf transfer, everything went great with no problems at all (except were were rained off the course on Sunday due to the torrential rain flooding the course). Accommodation in the Residencies was ideal for 8 blokes, breakfast in hotel was limited but set us up for the day. Golf was great – Alhama Signature was our favourite followed by El Valle and Mar Menor with Hacienda Riquelme the least favoured although it was still very good. We are already looking forward to next years trips!

Regards,
Kieran

Costa Brava 2018

Hi Karl,
A quick email to thank you for all your help. We had a great trip. Great city Girona. The hotel was just what was needed. Central and clean and comfortable. The golf was also excellent.
All in all a great trip. The bus was punctual and worked very well.

P.s. that beach day was a highlight. Would really recommend the whole trip to any group of golfers
Thanks
Donal

Costa Dorada 2018

Good morning Ross,

We were back yesterday and everything went well. As last year we all feel that there is probably no better value for money available than this package when you take the quality of the courses, transfers and dinner etc. included into account. The golf was very good and we still feel that we play the courses in reverse order of quality which is what we like.

4. Costa Dorada – a very good golf layout but just not as well maintained as the other courses. Also good value in terms of additional costs, trolley, buggies, food, drinks etc.
3. Lumine Lakes – flat layout. Some long walks between holes particularly on back 9.
2. Lumine Hills – excellent layout. Better variety of holes than the Lakes.
Both Lumine courses were being worked on in advance of the European Tour School. Some fairways were heavily sanded in parts, but only in parts. Did not really affect our enjoyment of the courses.
1. Bonmont – everyone’s favourite. Excellent golf course with a wonderful variety of holes.

All courses are very close to the hotel, the first three less than 10 minutes and Bonmont about 25 minutes. The dinner (buffet) in the hotel was very good particularly when included in the package deal.

Best regards,
Gerry

Salou 2018

Hi Ross,

Super time had by all, hotel and courses were fantastic again. Couldn’t fault it. I’ll be giving you a shout in the near future to go again for next year.

Thanks a million,

Penha Longa Resort 2018

Hi Ross,

We were very happy with Penha Longa. A somewhat flattering golf course. Weather perfect, great hotel and resort and with Uberx the wider areas of Sintra and Cascais were opened up. The golf club staff facilitated earlier tee times when I asked and were very helpful. Thanks for all your help,
Paul

Costa Brava 2018

Cambrils 2018

Hi Ross

Thanks for email. We had a great trip and everything went smoothly to plan. We felt the best course was Bonmont (played last Monday and it was almost gale force so would have liked another try!) the other courses were nice just the fairways not in great condition. Lumine Lakes seemed to be the busiest. Buggies were great with sat nav installed and we got complimentary range balls at Lumine Hills.

Transfers were great, always punctual. Hotel is in a great location, near everything. Most of us were upgraded to superior rooms. The superior rooms have new bathrooms which are all glass so not to everyone’s liking!! but not a deal breaker. All in all a great trip and we really enjoyed it. It’s a little quiet at night time i.e we couldn’t find a pub with anyone in it but otherwise great.

In a few months our thoughts will turn to next year so keep us in mind if there is anything new on the horizon. Many thanks for all your help and organisation.

Regards
Ann

Murcia 2018
Hi Karl,
Trip went very well. All transfers on time, no problems with Golf Courses and everything good with accommodation. Will definitely go back to Spain and if staying in that area would be looking at Las Alcazares (Hotel 525). Found Mar Menor a bit out. The courses are okay (wouldn’t play them again) but Las Colinas was a gem. That’s the calibre of golf course we will be looking for next time (I know its more expensive but worth it). Will book through yourselves again as I found you very professional to deal with and will recommend you to others (have already done so to 2 other groups). Thanks again for everything.
Until next time.

Tenerife 2018

Hi Ross

Sesimbra 2018

Good Morning Ross,

We had a great 8 days in Portugal. Sesimbra is a wonderful location, the Sana Sesimbra Hotel was excellent and really well located. Quinta de Puru is the better of the three courses we played.

Thank you,
Larry

Vilamoura 2018

Hi Michael,

Just a quick note to say thanks for organising another successful trip.

Everything was spot on, the hotel is definitely worth the extra few quid, and we had 8 happy golfers heading home last night.

Delighted to get 4 rounds played in the 4 days.

Can you let me know when the 2019 bookings open up, I’d say we’d be looking for the exact same setup.

Thank you,

Declan 

Vilamoura 2018

Hi Ross,

We had a great break thanks. The hotel was fantastic and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Golf was excellent also, especially the Old Course and Victoria. Victoria was set-up for the Portugal Masters in 2 weeks, so was in great condition and not especially tough either. We’ll definitely be heading back at some stage so I’ll be in touch again.

Thanks again for organising.
Mark

Vilamoura 2018

Hi Karl,

My golf trip was fantastic. I couldn’t fault it in any way. Each course held its own challenges and forgiveness.
Times, shuttles and people were excellent. Highly recommend.
Next time I will take a day by the pool between playing…32 def was hot.
Thank you once again to you and the Team there.
Hopefully we’ll do it again.

Regards to all.

Vale do Lobo 2018

Hi Ross,

Just a note to say thanks again for your help in organizing our holiday to Vale do Lobo. The resort and golf courses were superb. The deal for the foursomes week is really great value and the service we got was second to none. They ended up giving us a 3 bedroom apartment with pool which was lovely. Thanks again for providing excellent customer service and helping us have a great holiday. We are strong advocators to all our golfing buddies to use Golfbreaks.ie.

Thanks,

Ross,

Enjoying our last few hours here, all the lads were blown away by the golf courses. I had played calanova and el chapparal so I was interested to see what they made of the courses. Everything was perfect from hotel to travel arrangements with pick up times being spot on every time. We will be back and will definitely be using your company again.

Thanks for everything you did for us

Alvor 2018

Karl, thank you very much for everything, trip was fantastic from start to finish everyone was delighted with it. Hotel top notch could not have expected better. Transfers were spot on never late and very nice polite driver everyday. Then there were the courses, starting from the first tee in the alto to the last green in Silves just outstanding. Staff at all courses were very friendly and helpful. Thank you Golfbreaks.ie for a fantastic well priced and well worth every penny trip and for being so organized. We will definitely be back for another trip next year or 18 months. Yours gratefully and that is from all 14 of us.

CHEERS.

Vilamoura 2018

Ross,
The golf break went brilliantly, as usual everything went according to plan with no hick ups at all. The weather was great apart from a brief shower on the last day, the golf courses were all in superb condition and the hotel was magnificent (Lake Resort Vilamoura), definitely the best hotel we have stayed in on all our golf holidays. Well done to you and your team and we will definitely book again next year.

Regards,
Kieran

Vilamoura 2018

Hi Karl,

We had a fabulous trip thanks. Golf was amazing, especially the Old Course! Many more courses to play and Vilamoura was a great base so we will certainly be booking our next trip with you.

Vilamoura 2018

Hi Karl

We had a brilliant time. Everything went off smoothly. Hotel was perfect.  Pick ups as promised. Golf courses were lovely (pity about all the sand bunkers/ water)!!!! We will be contacting you again next year with hopefully a bigger group. A suggestion I might make if u could work out something with regard to hiring the buggies to be included in the package. Many thanks for all your help in making this a trip to remember.

Sheila

Alvor 2018

Hi Ross,

A quick note to thank you for helping me to organise a golf-trip with 9pax to Alvor. Our stay in Pestana Alvor South Beach (PASB) was absolutely fabulous! All very well organised, and welcoming from the very first moment. I think we were upgraded to rooms with terrace on the first floor. The 5 Pestana golf courses were good to excellent, and the suggested sequence (Alto, Silves, Pinta, Villa Sol and Gramacho) worked wonderfully well for all of us. Our very first experience with Golfbreaks.ie, but certainly not the last! Thanks again for your excellent and extremely responsive help and advice, making this trip a wonderful experience for the group.

Cheers,
Koen

Islantilla Golf Resort - 2018

Hi Karl,

We were very happy with our golf trip to Islantilla Golf Resort and found the courses to be in good condition. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. We found the food excellent and plenty variety. Golf course is located just across the road from hotel and very suitable if you do not have your own transport.
Thank you for all your help with the reservation.

Estoril 2018

All went well including the weather for the golf but we were lucky as Saturday was very wet. Thank you for arranging everything so professionally. We are considering Santa Ponsa for next year. Do you do golf trips to there?

Benalmadena 2018

Hi Ross,

Trip was a great success – Golf, Hotel and weather was excellent. The courses were enjoyed by all – in particular Santana. Calanova has a huge shop and also had a great sale on the day we were there. Many thanks again for your help – I have given your contact details to a number of members at our club.

All the best,
Triona

Amendoeira Resort - 2018

Hi Ross,

Safely home thanks and back to “Sunny Ireland “. We all thoroughly enjoyed Amendoeira, the accommodation is first class, the Staff at clubhouse extremely friendly and service and food were excellent. Golf courses were very good , we actually preferred the Faldo and were able to play it twice and O’Connor once , the only small issue with O’ Connor was the Greens were very slow, the resort were able to advise us they were a little behind on their maintenance schedule so that would just be a timing issue and normally very good , that is why we played Faldo twice ,no issue and no deal breaker. The range and practice facilities are again first class and overall we would have no hesitation in recommending this resort to any Golfing Group.

We really appreciate everything you advised us on and as usual you were spot on, also again all travel and transfers ran like clockwork .

Many thanks and will keep in touch .
Philip

Albufeira - 2018

Hi Karl,

I was going to contact you this week as I wanted to tell you what a fabulous holiday we had. I could not complain about anything as all ran smoothly. The Hotel and the Golf courses could not have been better. The receptionist in the hotel was so friendly and obliging and the service was exceptional. I will definitely be booking another golf holiday with yourselves this year. Just one learning for ourselves is to book a buggy early as there is a great demand for them. The Manager on the Alamos  course was very good and went out of his way on Thursday to organise a buggy for us. If only my golf was better and by husband did not lose so many balls  it would have been wonderful but you can’t have everything. Regards,

Dora Keane

Salou - 2018

Hi Ross,

We had a great time. Everything ran very smoothly – transfers, golf, accommodation and weather! The quality of the golf courses improved by the day – not saying that any were particularly poor! Thanks again for your assistance and input into the Salou trip. We will gladly return and recommend golfbreaks.ie to others.

Thanks,

Hi Karl,

On behalf of all the ladies who went from Westport GolfClub I would like to say a huge thank you to you for organising our trip. It was fantastic from start to finish!! The hotel was fabulous! Everything went like clockwork..the transfers were on time always! Courses were great.. shame it rained on our last afternoon golfing..luckily a few of us took our wet gear and were able to finish the round.. just a little reminder we were heading back home the day after Thank you again.

Kind regards
Rachel

La Manga 2018

Hi Ross,
We had a great golf break in La Manga. We didn’t think we would improve on La Cala last year . The South course was the favourite amongst the group with the West course being the most difficult. We were very impressed with the whole resort and the variety of restaurants on offer. Our accommodation was lovely and we would definitely return again.

Thanks for all your help.
Carmel

Gran Canaria 2018

Hi Ross

Our group (12 men) are just back after playing a week’s golf in Gran Canaria, We are seasoned golf travellers and would highly recommend this venue as a premium winter golf resort for several reasons, direct daily flights, super hotels, lovely golf weather but most importantly superb golf.

We played Lopesan Meloneras, Maspalomas, Salobre south and Anfi Tauro twice. All courses were in excellent condition, enjoyable and challenging , Anfi Tauro is quite specular cut into the mountains with many elevated tees (buggy essential). Maspalomas is the oldest course , flat and nicely designed with some new water features added. The back nine in Meloneras is situated on a cliff running along the coast and is up there with the best of them. We stayed in the four star Lopesan Costa Meloneras, facilities and location perfect. The courses we between 10 and 25 minutes transfer. The comments from our group was this venue ticked all the boxes and we will be booking again for next winter.

Salou 2018

Lagos 2018

The trip went well. No problems with the transfers. The hotel (Marina Club) is ideal for a golf party and the rooms are surprisingly large. The weather has been cooler than average in the Algarve but that didn’t bother us too much. All going well we will be in touch again next year.

Regards,
Niall

Kenny

Turkey 2018

Hi Ross

I just wanted to say thank you very much. Everything was fantastic – I would strongly recommend Sirene Hotel to anyone – fantastic from service, staff to food. We could not get over the variety and standard. Thoroughly enjoyed the golf courses – Sultan was our favourite however we really enjoyed Pasha, Carya & The National. I would not recommend the National as a two ball – as it was extremely slow – over 2 ½ hours for 9 holes! Transfers and shuttles were all very punctual also! We are potentially looking at returning around the same time next year.

Thanks again.
Paula

Salou 2018

Hi Ross,

It was a most enjoyable trip and all went well. In summary …

Hotel……The Belvedere was fine but l was glad we had taken the single rooms .The rooms would have been tight for 2 lads sharing with golf clubs , bags etc in the room…The rooms were cleaned regularly and the staff were very nice. The restaurant was really busy in the mornings and evenings but they seem to have it cracked and run it well. The location of the hotel was handy for the town at night and the beach for a walk.

Golf …. The 3 courses were excellent (Lumine Hills, Lumine Lakes, Bonmont) I thought Lumine Hills was the best of the lot but the other 2 were excellent too. I am fairly well travelled to know that golf in Spain /Portugal takes a long time so the 5.5 and 6 hours it takes doesn’t bother me as much as it might others. The Lakes on Sunday last was very slow as the place was jammed but the other 2 days we had a bit more space so we took our time and enjoyed them more for that reason. Bonmont is a spectacular setting for a golf course and we liked the food there too.

Transfers …..This service was excellent and the drivers were spot on with the collection and drop times every day …the vans were nice and the drivers friendly too…l liked the idea that the golf courses and airport (Reus) were very local so no major time spent driving. lt was a much better option than car hire with everything being local.

Thanks
Paul

Alicante 2018

The trip was lovely and the whole group were very impressed by the organisation and the lovely golf courses.

Thanks for everything and I will be in contact again for our next trip.

Alvor 2018

Hi Ross,

Yes, everything was great, we even got lucky with the weather. Not sure we would play Alto again but really enjoyed Silves and Vila Sol. Everything ran very smoothly, and the drivers for the transfers were excellent and the hotel was spot on. Great value for money, we’ll be back

Thanks
Stephen

Tavira 2018

Hi Ross,

We were so blessed with the weather, not a cloud for 4 days. Started raining the day we left.. Everything went really well. the Hotel was great, the golf courses fab and Tavira itself was gorgeous. We only had one come home on crutches so not too bad. Roll on next year . maybe Spain I think.

Thanks a million

Portimao 2018

Hi Ross,

All went well thanks. Hotel was very good with a good breakfast available which was a bonus. Rooms were spacious enough for 2 also. Golf was enjoyable but courses not to everyone’s liking, especially Salgados, which was my favourite. Transfers were excellent. Overall a very enjoyable few days and we will go back there for sure. Thanks again for your great service and will hopefully book with you again before the end of the year.

Best regards
Stephen

Seville 2018

Hi Ross,

We had a great few days in Seville and many thanks for your help. Hotel (Alfonso XIII) was absolutely fabulous!

Zaudin Golf was good and Real Clube de Golf Seville was fantastic! We were not mad about Hato Verde. Bit far out and thought course was not great. Overall it was a great destination and many thanks again for your help. Will give you a shout again for our next trip!

Kind regards

It was a great holiday, everything was perfect. Pick ups, hotel & Golf was really enjoyed by all, Philip our bus drive was great, very helpful & friendly, even booked restaurant for us, can’t complain. Can’t wait to go next year, maybe even later on in the year.

Thanks a million
Martina

Fuengirola 2018

Ross,

Had a great time with the weather obliging also. Hotel was very central in the resort and also clean with helpful staff. Good bars and restaurants nearby. Golf courses also very good with Santana being one of the best we have played abroad. Mijas did not allow buggies on the fairways due to recent rain but the courses were fine. I would definitely recommend Santana – great course and very friendly staff there.

Thanks again for all your help.

Vilamoura 2018

We had a lovely time and thanks for the nice room with the view I got, others a bit jealous. Hotel very nice and friendly.

Only one little thing was booking the shuttle bus to the golf courses. We had to book and wait could not book for a particular time, could wait anything from 5 to 20 mins. Actually one day some of us nearly missed tee time as first bus took 8 and 2nd bus was to be behind it but was much later. It is only a small thing but in Crowne Plaza previous year, they had there own bus so we could go whenever we booked time for.

All else good as was the weather until we got home.

Thanks, Marian.

Alvor 2018

It was great! Thanks Ross,

Costa Del Sol 2018

Fantastic, huge success.

Courses were class, transfer company was impeccable, hotel was well placed and spotless, a little dated but suited us down to the ground. Great recommendation again, thanks again for all the help. Probably be Autumn 2019 before we go again but as soon as we know we’ll get back in touch.

Billy

Vilamoura 2018

The trip with the group was brilliant from start to finish the transfers were on time & very accommodating with making different stops and that. The hotel was great & everybody had a great time decent weather & good golf so definitely a success. As soon as flights are available for Jan again I will be in touch to organize same again but I imagine we will have a bit of a larger group after the success of that trip and maybe change out 1 of the courses to throw in a new one.

Kind Regards

Torremolinos 2018

Hi Ross

Everything went brilliant, from the hotel to the golf clubs everything was well organised and we had no problems at all, thanks for all your help and will definitely be in touch to organise another break later in the year.

Thanks again
Gerry

Vale do Lobo 2017
Trip was great, we all enjoyed it. Everything went smoothly and really enjoyed the golf. In terms of the hotel, it was lovely but a bit isolated from supermarkets and amenities so had to get taxis everywhere to nearby towns. It really is a nice hotel though and right beside the beach with excellent staff.
Golf courses were fabulous. We all loved them. Got to play the Olives 9 in Pinheros both days which was great as we wondered what it would be like playing the same course again but no issues and with a different back 9 it was like a brand new course. Shuttles from course left any time you wanted so could enjoy food and a drink afterwards. Had no issues checking in for golf and vouchers worked that you provided perfectly for golf and transfers.
Overall no complaints and all four of us really enjoyed it. Think we are all in agreement we will be going again next year so will definitely book with Golf Breaks again.
Thanks for all your help Karl.
Darren O’Sullivan
Lisbon 2017

Hi Michael,

Just a quick line to confirm all went very well on our trip .

We particularly enjoyed Oitavos Dunes, which we got on a very nice day with no breeze.. as its flat from 4th hole on , we didn’t bother with buggies which reduced our costs considerably .

Penha was enjoyable, Belas was also quite a good course – with a few really tough holes on the front nine, and a buggy is definitely required for a few  massive treks from greens to tees.

Other than that the hotel was grand, with really helpful staff and our transfers were very well organised with extremely helpful drivers (particularly for the juggling act in returning clubs to terminal one for the early  flight from terminal two).

Peter

Hi Ross.

We had a great time. All very happy with hotel and golf.  In fact we’re wondering when they would need to book the hotel for next year.

Costa Dorada 2017
Hi Ross ,
Everything ran like clockwork , no issues with transfers and golf . Lovely weather and good golf courses so the guys were happy. Overall Lumine Hills was probably our favourite course. Hotel was very centrally located and service was very good from hotel staff. Great choice of food for breakfast and evening meal. All in all we were very happy and thanks for arranging everything.

Dona Filipa Golf Resort 2017

Hi Karl,

We had a really nice time.   The hotel Dona Filipa was very nice, despite their being a bit of refurbishment going on.   We were upgraded from our original room to a very nice spacious room overlooking the garden and sea view.   The golf at San Lorenzo lived up to its challenging expectations, notwithstanding the fairways being a bit shabby, nevertheless it didn’t take away from the really good layout of the course.    We also played Pinheiros Altos which was also very good.

In terms of organisation, everything went like clockwork from the pick up at the airport, golf vouchers and times etc.   Well done, we will definitely be talking to to you again.

Maura

Hi Michael

Firstly I would like to thank you for looking after our booking. Our trip was perfect, the transfers were exceptional, always on time and without any problems. The hotel was extremely helpful in every way. the hotel standard was spot on also, with very little complaints if any from any of our group.

I think the location was perfect also, the courses were top class, among the best I’ve played, lumine hills was really 5 star in there little extras that they throw in. We will definitely be using golfbreaks.ie for our next outing.

I will be highly recommending you lot.

Many thanks again

William

Amendoeira 2017

Hi Michael,

We are just back from the weekend golfing at Amendoeira, we had a great time altogether. It is a very nice golf resort but the staff were excellent compared with other resorts. The only down side we had was the length of time it took for a round of golf on Friday and Sunday on the Faldo course, we were left waiting at least 15 minutes on each hole from the 7th on wards, think there was a society out. Yesterday I played 18 holes in 3 hrs 45 mins.

Best regards,

Anthony Doyle

Vale do Lobo 2017

Hi Karl

We just back today from our golf trip to portugal.
It was a brilliant trip and San Lorenzo has to be the best course in the south of portugal.
It is only spectacular to say the least.
It has everything you could wish for in a golf course.
I wont even mention the crack we had in the apres golf   enough said !!!!!.
Thank very much for all your help and we are already planning a return trip next year.
We will be in touch to book again as time comes up.  Well done.

La Finca Golf Resort 2017

Hi Michael

Thanks for arranging and all went well. All pick ups\drops to Airport\courses really well organised. Hotel was really nice, spacious room and good breakfast, helpful staff. La Finca Golf facilities excellent – driving range, chipping\putting green. The 3 courses we played on were top standard – they were all different, challenging and very well maintained. Club Houses of golf courses were also very good, nice bars\cafe with tapa’s to eat.

Kind Regards,

Joe

Hi Michael.

The week was perfect buses were like clockwork, weather was fab. And the courses were nice thank you very much.

Pat

Vilamoura 2017

Hi Ross

Yes back safe and sound thanks. No problems with the organisation and the courses we selected. As usual we were well looked after by your colleagues on transfers etc. The three courses we selected were all fine and very pleased with the tee times we had booked. The hotel also as usual very suited to our needs and location excellent. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best although we managed to avoid most of the rain with the tee times we had..  Can’t hold you responsible for that I suppose!! Thanks again for all the help this year and I’m sure we’ll be back again to you later in the year.

Kind regards

Murcia City 2017

Very enjoyable week. Murcia city very interesting. Hotel excellent. Good restaurants within walking distance hotel.  All golf courses good with nice staff. Played 8  rounds in total. Played extra 18 on Altoreal,  We also played Alhama twice. We were allowed to use our Saturdays voucher for Hasienda Del Alamo on Friday evening so that freed up Saturday to go to Alahma twice on Saturday.

Martin

Vilamoura 2017

All went very well and everyone delighted with the organisation and facilities. I think we’ll be booking again for next year and perhaps upgrading the hotel slightly – no complaints about the hotel, but might treat ourselves a little. Well done – it went like a dream really.

Thanks,

Des

Estoril 2017

Had a great time. Antonio our driver was brilliant. What a knowledgeable man. The courses were great but Penha Longa the best by far. Hotel was good and Central but next time I would rather a five star.  So …..I plan to go again but would drop Estoril in place of penha longa and play it twice. Finally found the best restaurant ever, Conceito food store ….fantastic

Best wishes

Alvor 2017

Hi Ross,

Just to let you know that our golf trip last week worked out very well. In particular the transfer company was very punctual  which helped the weekend to run smoothly.

Carvoeiro 2017

Hi Karl,

We had a great holiday and the facilities at the resort are outstanding. We had a few changes in the accommodation as it was extremely busy and we ended having an apartment upgrade to villa. The Villas are 5 star and the lady at reception “Therese” was extremely helpful and courteous.

Thanks for all your help.

Girona 2017
Hi Ross,
It was all good except for golf disrupted by thunder and lightning on the last day when we missed playing the Stadium but got out on the Tour again. Hotel and transfers service excellent. Talk to you later in the year

John
Vilamoura 2017
All went great. We’ve had a lot of golf trips to Marbella and three to South Carolina and this year’s Vilamoura trip was well up with the best of them. Courses were great, hotel was perfectly located and all staff were excellent and the price was very right. We’ll be back with you again next Easter.
Cheers,
Niall
Costa del Sol 2017
Everything was generally very good. Pick ups all on time. Golf course suited us fine.
Hotel accommodation was again fine for 4 lads. We didn’t spend much time there in any case. Overall no major complaints from us.
Thanks.

Hi Michael,
The whole trip worked out fantastic the hotel and the coach went like clockwork, the golf courses were very good the stand out one of course was Victoria we will be going back again next year and  I will be in Touch I would recommend to my friends to use your travel company without any hesitation.

Islantilla Golf Resort 2017
Hi Karl,
Just a brief note to let you know how we got on at Islantilla Golf Resort. It was exactly as you said. We really enjoyed the golf as it was located a couple of yards from the hotel. All in good condition and tee times all worked fine. Transfers and everything worked extremely well. In summary we really enjoyed the week, and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Golfbreaks to friends. Look forward to travelling with the Co again. Many thanks for all your help, really appreciate it
Kind Regards

Torremolinos 2017

Have to say thanks for everything and everything went super could not fault it at all, all lads felt the same and would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone and we are already planning to go next year, so when ever you have any deals going for next year give me a shout. Would be looking for 4 nights 3 rounds.

Thanks

Robbie

Vilamoura 2017

Just to let you know everything went very well on our golfing trip, the hotel was perfect located directly next to Pinhal and within easy reach of the other courses. All courses were in very good condition and though it was very windy two of the days we still managed to enjoy our golf.

The hotel was excellent far better than those around the Marina and we will definitely stay here again.Transfers were very good and efficient.

Regards

Kieran

Montecastillo 2016

We were a group of 6 Lady golfers looking for good golf on challenging courses. John recommended Montecastillo in Jerez, Spain. We had played there twice before back in 2009 and were very excited about returning.

We stayed in the five star hotel on the golf resort. Being so close to the course ensured that we were able to play as often as we liked. We played 5 games of golf and the tee times were booked in advance of us travelling which was a real bonus as we got the tee times that suited us.

We were very pleased with the service that we got from golfbreaks.ie, transfers to and from the airport were organised, tee times booked and the complete package from end to end was superb and great value. They even gave us recommendations for restaurants and places of interest to visit.

Marty Mescall

Alvor 2016

Ross

Our Alvor trip went really well. The hotel was fantastic (Alvor South Beach), the transfers very efficient, and the golf courses really good. We all had a fantastic time and will recommend you, and Golf Breaks.ie, to everyone we know !

I am handing over the ‘bainisteoir’ role for 2017 (everyone has to take a turn) so I am sure she will be in touch. Thanks for all your help over the last two years, it was a pleasure dealing with you.

Kind regards.
Pam

Tavira 2016

Hi Ross,

I would like to thank Golfbreaks, and you in particular for organising the recent Glen of the Downs Oaks trip to Tavira.
The organisation was first class. The hotel was ideal for golfers, and the buffet, which was very good value, was used by most of the group. The transfers were always on time and the drivers were most helpful.
Your choice of courses was excellent, and thank you again for the efficient way that you were able to switch days for us due to a forecast of rain on the Thursday.
Tavira is an ideal location for golf groups, if we were to return , I would suggest that we would substitute Quinta de Vale for another course, maybe play one of the others twice, or try to get a good deal with Monte Rei. The first nine on Quinta de Vale were extremely difficult, particularly for my Group of “Senior Golfers”, it had water everywhere and most of my group lost 3/4 balls on the front nine,the average score was 9 points!.
Again Ross well done, the trip was a great success, and enjoyed by all.

Regards,
Michael

Fuengirola 2016

Just a quick mail to thank you for the organisation on the trip. It was one of our better trips, transport was fantastic. Will be looking for something the same next year if you can keep me in mind.

Thanks again
David Kavanagh

Torremolinos 2016

Hi Ross,

Just a quick note to say thanks for orgainising the trip for us. The Sol Timor was spot on for our needs with all the Irish Bars on our doorstep and we had two lovely meals in Spanish Garden and El Trillo again less than 100 yards from the hotel.

The La Cala golf was well organised and the courses were very well kept but some of the holes were irritating and to be honest need to be altered. Thanks for sorting out the buggies on the second day which was an excellent intervention by you after having a mishap of lost money on the first day! The only down side was the 50 minute transfer to La Cala which is a bit away from the Sol Timor but it was a small blip only.

Once again thanks a million and I hope we will be back to you September/October 12 months for a similar trip but perhaps back to Portugal again.

Thanks,
Mick

Alvor 2016

Flawless! Every pick up transfer was on time. Return transfers were also all on time and at times we chose.

Dom Joao is a grand golfing hotel with a decent breakfast and good bar times and an easy walk to the ‘metropolis’ of Alvor. The Front Desk there staff were exceptionally efficient and accommodating.

Gramacho & Silves were great once again. Gramacho is the real deal. Silves is a bit rough around the edges (no proper changing room) but a great course to play and very nice people. Alto has some good holes and we’d go back. Vila Sol is too difficult for 16-26 handicappers. We averaged 22 points there whereas 28-32 other days. It was a slog. Every 2nd shot a 3-5 wood! Our only single figure handicapper loved it!

The buggy cert notifications had all been received and were all honoured. That was vital because Silves is always short of buggies.

I can’t think of a single criticism!

Just let me know when next years deals start to get announced and we’ll do business again.

All best,
Kevin

Salgados Dunas Suites 2016

Ross, we had a ball, hotel and facilities excellent. Played five days, there was no concession on the fifth day despite having played four days consecutively beforehand. We swopped from Alamos to Morgado on the Thursday as the latter is far superior, Alamos is easily the worst of the tree, surprisingly lost no ball on salgados despite my fears.

Thanks again for the excellent service,
Murt

Costa Dorada 2016

Everything went very well with Transfers ,Hotel and Golf we all enjoyed it.

Each course was different with different challenges but all were playable and in good condition. Lumine Hills was in the best condition , Bonmont next and Costa Dorada was maybe not up to the same condition as the other two but it was top of the list in terms of layout.
We actually played Lumine Ruins 9 hole course on the Sun…

Food & rooms were great in the Hotel but Hotel was busy mainly with families on Holiday there. .

Regards,
Pat

Lagos 2016

Well…. needless to say we are all a bit wrecked. Great time and everyone interested in perhaps Lagos again next year. We keep finding
new places and things to do.

The three golf courses were great – Boavista and especially Palmares were fab – Espiche was lovely but difficult and for us girls who come from very wide fairways with little trouble it certainly put manners on us. Loads of lost balls!! Palmares is definitely a course to play earlier in the day when there is some hope of getting a buggy – we only got three which was fine but pulling a trolley around there was a bit tiring.

Vilamoura 2016

I would like to thank you for organising our trip to Vilamoura. We had an unbelievable time. Everything from the hotel (Vila Gale Marina) to the courses and transfers went perfect and the weather was excellent. We had a great time and are already taking about the next trip. (wife permission permitting) The winner of our company completion had a combined score of 70 points over the 2 courses.

Thanks again

Kind Regards,
James

Cascais 2016

All went well. Hotel lovely and we knew the golf courses. Antonio the minibus man was fine too.
Only downside was we got rained off the last day but we had 4 scorchers.
Hopefully speak to you for a trip next year.

Regards JC

Girona 2016

Hotel was perfect (Hotel Carlemany), (PGA Catalunya) stadium course magnificent.
This year the tour course has a lot of new construction taking place so lots of noise and half built houses on some holes which was disappointing as we did not experience that last year. We paid a supplement on the Saturday to play the stadium.

Staff are excellent on the course and did a good job managing the card on our first day when the morning was very wet.. We went out later than planned and enjoyed a dry round.

Best regards
Dave

Penina 2016

Everything went great and all impressed with the hotel.

The rooms were lovely and very clean and a lot commented on how comfy the beds were and the quality of the bed linen and towels.

The golf was great, with good feedback on the course.

The only piece of constructive feedback I would give them is that at breakfast they seemed to be under staffed so was difficult to get a waiter to get tea etc. and the staff seemed a bit under pressure.

We will definitely be returning next year, so let me know the deals for last week in April/early May!

Thanks for all your help.
Karen

Penina 2016

Hi Ross

It was perfect for us. The hotel was clean and staff friendly. Airport Transfers were punctual. Food was good. We were delighted that we picked the championship course for the three rounds. Practice facilities on site are very good. My golf was mixed but I’ll blame you for that.

Thank you so much.
Joe

Majorca 2016

Thanks for organising a very good trip. Everything went like clockwork. Everyone happy and 3 of the 4 golf courses were very nice . The hotel was well located and weather was perfect. I hope we can work together again later this year.

Regards,
Eric

Vilamoura 2016

As usual everything went according to plan, apart from the golf but that’s out of your control.

The hotel reception had a good makeover since last year.

Hopefully will chat to you later in the year to plan next year.

Again, thanks for everything.

Regards
Stephen

Vilamoura 2016

I would like to compliment Golfbreaks on a recent trip to the Algarve. We are a group of 8 golfers & we used Golfbreaks for our golf holiday to Portugal in February.

From begining to end , the trip was organised in a very professional manner, coupled with an excellent Hotel & top class Courses. All told, I cannot speak highly enough about Golfbreaks & Ross Melody & we would certainly travel with them again.


Best Regards

Amendoeira 2016

It went perfect, very impressed will be arranging again hopefully October this year. Thanks very much for great service.

Facilities fantastic
Fairways, tee box all great
Greens quite slick
Bunkers s little inconsistent on both courses.
Faldo greens the best.
All in all – very happy group

Thanks,

La Cala Golf Tournament 2016

Everything was great. Courses very difficult but still good fun. La Cala Hotel and staff are highly recommended, particularly competition director who looked after us very well. And the weather was great too. Only thing that would stop me going back there would be courses are difficult for high handicappers.

Thanks for all your help.
Pat

Portimao 2014, Vilamoura 2015

2014: Many thanks for helping arrange our 20 person trip in April 2014 to Portugal. Your courses and hotel recommendations were extremely helpful and arranging all our transfers made life so stress free. Everyone on the trip had a great time and we look forward to booking again with you for 2015, many thanks again Ross.

2015: Great trip, all 30 very happy. Pinhal was the favorite course of the group by far, it had a nice blend of everything and was much better than I remember. The hotel was good perfect location and the marina was very busy. Everyone is buzzing for next year already and we have even more wanting to go next year. Again many thanks for your help it went down very well with the group.

Penina Golf Resort, Portimao

Hi Ross, on behalf of Brona and myself, many thanks for a wonderful holiday experience. Yes, we were lucky with the weather but everything fell into place nicely for us to make a great holiday. Wonderful location! The course, as you knew, was ideal as it was flat but a great challenge. We look forward to travelling with you again this time next year.

Take care, Liz

Dom Joao, Alvor

Had a wonderful trip. Golf courses excellent though weather not great. On Wed. we had hailstones. Fairways white, greens white and hailstones almost cut the faces off us!! Still we soldiered on!! Friday we played my favourite golf course, Gramacho. (4 of us played it again on Sunday. We were the lucky ones because there was a dreadful thunderstorm in Alvor while we were away.)

Played Alto on Saturday. This was quite wet under foot. The best weather was on Monday when we played Pinta. Our hotel was fine though would have preferred more choice for breakfast. Transfers were brilliant. On the whole a wonderful experience.

Without doubt will use golfbreaks.ie again.

Many thanks for all your help.

Regards, Maureen

Vila Gale, Tavira

HI Ross,

All back safe and sound (always a relief for me) and looking forward to next year already.

The hotel was great. It actually suited us better than the Tivoli in Portimao, because it had a big bar and pool tables. The whole group could go out and then meet back in the hotel

Transportation was a luxury coach every day. We were a bit late finishing the golf on the Tuesday, so I asked the driver did he mind waiting for a short while. He had no problem. I paid him for waiting.

The golf courses were tough (for us anyway) but very enjoyable. As with our previous experience in Portugal the staff at the hotel/golf courses/transportation gave us first class treatment, always friendly and very helpful.

I would like to thank you and your company for your help in making the organising of the trip and the trip itself a very enjoyable experience.

I intend to start organising for next year even earlier than I did this year, so I will be in contact with you around the end of July early August to see what is available.

Regards and thanks,

Bernard.

Vila Gale, Vilamoura

Everyone very impressed with full package the way it was organised on your end top class, talks already of doing it again in two years time,thanks again for everything. Will talk again for definite!

Regards Andy

Tivoli Lagos

Just to let you know that we are all back safe and sound!!! Had a great time – didn’t have time to scratch ourselves. Loved both courses. Everyone happy and already talking about next year!! Tivoli was great – didn’t realise just how close we were to the village until Monday when we eventually went out during daylight hours!!! Left a lot of money in the local bars!!!

Thanks again for your help and advice. Will be in touch.

Regards, Cathy

Vila Gale Hotel, Cascais

Everything went very well. For starters the flights were at great times of the day especially when we had a few hours driving each end. Antonio Vieira was excellent for all the transfers, with a great knowledge of golf himself , the courses and places to go in Cascais. The courses were great, not overcrowded and relaxed and we would like to go back again. Hotel was fine, just a bit away from Cascais.
On behalf of myself and the lads we would like to thank yourself for your excellent work on a great package put together. We will be back to you before year end for something similar.

Many thanks, Nathy O Connell.

Fuerte Miramar, Marbella

I just wanted to let you know that the Power Group (!) got on very well in Marbella. The Hotel was great, the golf courses were great and the transport to and from airport and golf courses could not be faulted.

Thanks so much for your help organising the trip. We may change the venue next year, just for a bit of variety, but will be back to you for recommendations.

Thanks again, Pam

Hotel Porta Nova, Tavira

We were very pleased with our golf break in Tavira. We had been to Vilamoura for the past few years and all members of our group would prefer to return again to Tavira. We were happy with the hotel which was ideally located near an Irish bar and good restaurants.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the golf courses especially the Quintas (Cima & Ria). The temperature was up around 30C so, we took a chance on getting an early tee time & got to play at 9:00am on a few days instead of the booked times of 12:00.

Best Regards, Jim Quinn,

Tivoli Marina Portimao

Hi Ross,

The trip was very enjoyable. Accommodation was superb as was the golf. The golf clubs themselves were also very accommodating as, although on a couple of occasions we missed our tee time, they were very flexible and ensured we still got out.

We’re already thinking of our next trip and once we decide when, we will be in touch. Thanks again for everything.

Kind regards, Ross C

Luna Olympus, Vilamoura

Everything was perfect, fair play to you delighted with the deal we will be back to you again next year.

Praia Del Rey, Lisbon

Hi Ross,

We really enjoyed our first golf holiday. The hotel was very good but not a five star. The staff were very friendly and excellent service. We felt very relaxing hotel. really loved it…..
The golf course in Praia D’el Rey was very well maintained and well run. Royal Obidos was excellent too… challenging to say the least and would keep you fit. Worked off all those calories gained with the eating and drinking.
Bon Sucesso grounds are not in great condition but it suited us for the first round of golf as there was no one on the course on the Sunday and this settled us for our first day.
I was very happy with the whole experience and was very pleased with the whole package. I would like to thank you for all your help and your services have been top class. Roll on next year…… or maybe sooner

Yours Sincerely – Aloma and Ian

Dom Joao, Alvor

Hi Ross,

Back last Sat. from trip to Alvor. ‘FANTASTIC’ Everything went so well.Hotel : Great. Transfers : 100 per cent. Weather : Brilliant Courses : Maybe would not go back to SILVES others ‘FAB. Golf : As I halved the best score for the week, it must have been good !

Thanking you for all your effort on our behalf. Hope we will talk again about another trip.

Kind Regards, Des

Penina Golf Resort, Portimao

We had a wonderful week at Penina, the weather was glorious, the golf course was excellent and a beautiful place to stay.
The transfer arrangements went very smoothly and the drivers were on time and very courteous. The tournament was well organised and efficiently run. When you hear about the dates for next year, we shall be very interested.

Sueno Resort, Turkey

The organisation from the Ireland end was absolutely perfect. When we arrived in Sueno the staff could not have been nicer, we were in our rooms before we knew it and everything was organised to a tee. The package that we got included unlimited golf and that is exactly what we got. The two golf courses are superb. The meals in the restaurant were varied and well done, my favourite was the desert table, in fact, it was a pity to take something off it as it was a work of art. All in all, the organisation of our holiday meant that we had nothing to worry about. All transfers from the airport both flying in and out were exactly on time. I and my husband have the holiday of a lifetime and would recommend Golfbreaks.ie any time.

Transfers all on time perfectly, Hotel staff in Tivoli Marina were 10 out of 10(Wonderful) and courses great especially naturalness of Morgado. The price was excellent for the service, hotel and courses we played. Well done, See you next year.

Errol

Sirene Belek Resort, Turkey

Initially I was slightly apprehensive about having to take 2 flights to Antalya. However, the change in Istanbul was seamless and bags and clubs arrived promptly at the other end. It was a bonus to find that Turkish Airlines carry the clubs free of charge too! The Belek area is an incredible golfing resort. There are about 16 courses to choose from and they are all top class. We played the Montgomerie (where the Turkish Airlines open is played), The Pasha, The Cornelia Faldo and The National. You have to see these to believe them! Without question they far surpassed our usual haunts in Spain and Portugal. We stayed at the Sirene Belek Resort. Great value for money, an all inclusive option with great food and drink. There are other Hotels but this one suited our budget. We are thinking of going back again and may look at staying in The Cornelia Diamond. Ross looked after our arrangements and it was great to talk to a golfer who knew his product. Everything he said he delivered on. I have no hesitation in recommending Golfbreaks.ie and Turkey as a destination.

Thanks,
Bob

Mar Menor Golf Residences, Murcia

The three of us who went on our golf holiday through your company had a great time. We found your company to be very easy to deal with. We found everything in Spain was as you organised and said it would be. We have no hesitation in recommending Golfbreaks.ie to other Irish golfers looking for deals on accomodation, courses and club hire.

M Kilmartin

Vila Gale Ampalius, Vilamoura

Everything went fantastic, from the pick up at the airport on arrival to the return pick up. Hotel and its location was brilliant. All the golf courses were amazing and of course we were very lucky with the weather. The only criticism (for want of a better word) is the Pinhal course…we wouldn’t be inclined to play it again. Otherwise everything was fab!!!

Already talking of our return trip for 2015 (if we can’t squeeze one in later in the year!!!)

Thanks a million for all your help in organising this holiday.

Penina Golf Resort

We had a fabulous holiday…Frances says it was the best ever. We played 13 and 14 rounds respectively on the championship course and met very friendly people. The transport was spot on and the hired clubs were very good and clubstohire didn`t charge us for the extra day because of the Aer Lingus strike. We will certainly revisit Penina again. I should add that the weather was very good and not too hot.The resort is particularly well designed and the one complaint I would make is there wasn`t a place to get a quick snack after a game…the numerous eateries provided bigger meals than is good for my age group! All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Many thanks for your help.

We had an great holiday in Portugal. The accommodation was excellent and the golf courses were v enjoyable. We got v heavy rain on the day that we played Laranjal and gave up after 6 holes but on request they allowed us to play the following day. We appreciated this gesture v much. All on all a v satisfactory holiday for everyone.

Thanks for you help. We hope to go back around same time next year.

Thanks for your help in arranging the golf trip last week. Great time had by all, everything went smoothly……….hotel fine, the coach guys were very professional and 3 great courses played. Most importantly, I got them all back to their loved ones in one piece!!

Thanks again for your help, I will recommend your services to anyone I know planning one of these trips.

Islantilla Golf Resort, Huelva

I visited Islantilla Golf Resort for the first time in 2013 and was so impressed that I returned with a group of 12 in 2014.

All arrangements from booking process and airport transfers to hotel accommodation and golf tee times went without a hitch. Very professionally handled. The quality of the hotel and golf course and the friendliness of the staff made for a very enjoyable holiday as echoed by all my travelling companions. I would recommend the location to all golfers.

We used golfbreaks.ie in 2014 for our annual 5 day golf break and would recommend them without hesitation on the grounds of price , communication and problem solving. There was one slight glitch and we were so impressed with the speed and manner that it was resolved, we were kept in the loop at all times during resolution of the problem and that is what impressed me most. We hope to use them again next year!!

Marian Barry

Luna Olympus Hotel, Vilamoura

Back home safely but a bit tired still. We had a really enjoyable trip. Everything went smoothly, with no problems whatsoever. The courses were excellent. (Only gripe was the greens in Pinhal were very very slow) Victoria was quite challenging but we really enjoyed it. 5 star experience here. Thank you very much for organising us, and we certainly hope to repeat the trip or similar soon again.

Best Regards,

The holiday was a fantastic success. The hotel was perfect as it was in a very central location. I have been to Lagos before so knew the area well. The most important point was the transfers and I can’t stress enough how impressed we were with the company who took care of us. They were always on time, always helpful, if we were having a few drinks after golf they never rushed us and all round they were exceptional. The weather was amazing which helped the golf. I personally loved all three courses and the new club house in Espiche was amazing. The general consensus was that Palmeras was the best course. Thanks again for everything.

Pestana Carvoeiro Golf Resort

We arrived after Mid night Saturday night to the resort. Immediately shown to our 2 lovely spacious apartments/Villas. Played Silves twice Monday. 15 mins drive from Gramacho. Again Lovely course and some fantastic holes. Had Dinner in Carvoeiro village that night. Played Vale de Pinta twice on Monday. Only a short spin. Again another lovely course with more great holes. Carvoeiro village again that night for dinner. Played Vila Sol twice on Tuesday. About a 40 minute drive. Another fantastic course and setting and a real test of your game. Stopped in Albufeira on way back for dinner and to get a taster for where to go for our final night out. Played Gramacho twice on Wednesday, Again another lovely course with lots of interesting Holes.

All the golf courses had beautiful carpet like fairways, Greens were lovely and the rough not over penalising. Its hard to pick your favourite course. Do you pick the course where you played your best or the course that was the biggest challenge. In all we enjoyed every single minute of every round we played. No problem getting a second tee time in the evening. Food was probably best at the Gramacho and Vila Sol courses. 43 euro per buggy was slightly steep but 30 euro per buggy for second round.

We had our final night out in Albufeira, great place for a night out. The Gramacho bar organised an 8 seater bus for us. He also brought us home at 5 in the morning I was told : )

I asked you back in December for a recommendation for a trip for 8 golf enthusiasts (age 31) you suggested this trip for us and to rent a car. You got it spot on. Everyone agreed it was great. We will be back probably with a few more golfers after they we told them how it was.
