Treat yourself to a golf trip in Alvor
For this blog I will give a quick breakdown on where to stay & play during a golf break to Alvor. Alvor is a former fishing village located in the Algarve, it offers a traditional charm along with modern resort amenities. Groups of golfers looking for excellent value in Portugal might want to consider the lovely beachfront accommodation & excellent golf options on offer in Alvor. Arriving into Faro Airport it takes about 30-35 minutes via car to get there.
During my time in Alvor, I stayed in the Alvor atlantico apartments right along the stunning Alvor beach and it is one of numerous places to stay along it’s picturesque coastline.
Alvor provides golfers with great beach view accommodation on the sunny Algarve coastline along with fantastic value on top quality golfing venues close by….. Whats not to like 🙂
As with almost every destinations in the Algarve, Alvor has plenty of quality accommodation to stay in which are well suited for golfing groups.
The Pestana hotel chain have a number of outstanding hotels in Alvor, most of which are located right along main beach, the Praia de Alvor which is a splendid long, sandy beach flanked by dunes.
One of the most popular places to stay among golfers is the Pestana Dom Joao hotel, which has 247 rooms and offers a morning breakfast spread which has to be seen to be believed. The hotel is a favorite among golfing groups and even in mid-February there was many golfers there enjoying their stay & golf. I stayed in the newly refurbished Alvor Atlántico apartments, a stone’s throw away from the Dom Joao hotel, offering fine spacious self-catering apartments with an option for breakfast in the Dom Joao. What struck me most was the location, you really can’t beat waking up and looking out at the beach & sunny skies.
The Pestana South Beach hotel is another great option close by. it is a more modern hotel also right along the beach (only 97 steps from the beach) it is vibrant boutique style hotel, guests will pay slightest extra for the location and facilities but can be sure to have pure relaxing visit.
Other ideal accommodation for your golf trip is the Alvor Praia Hotel, the Luna Alvor Bay Hotel & the Pestana Delfim Hotel – you can view all of Golfbreaks.ie’s Alvor accommodation options here.
