  • Has been an enjoyable round in the past, and no doubt will be again in the future, but course very tatty at the moment and not worth 105 euro. Try Santana instead. 
  • Unfortunately, during our stays in Rio real the vehicle hit by a golf ball and a disc completely destroyed (vehicle was parked on the official parking lot of the golf course). The management apologized while insured but that the damage would be fixed immediately and we would suffer no inconvenience. Furthermore, the management assured that the insurance of the Spanish Golf Federation would sign with us. We had during our holiday in Marbella at his own expense to repair the car and waited until sign the insurance with us. Time passed... Nothing happened. The management of the golf course responded to my letter with the request to pay the repair rude and only noted that it now is for insurance and of the Association. Grace and good customer management is different! In the next few weeks I will have to hit me probably around with Spanish insurance and the Association. Who wants to avoid headaches and spend his holiday stress-free, avoid this place!

  • This pleasant golf course has been a "must" for our golf trips over several years. The reason is the exciting topography on parts of the path, the scenic surroundings and the good quality as the path offers each time. A plus for the opportunity to use golf carts-normally in the entire path-not only on the path. The path is a classic pair of 72 with more than 6.000 metres from back-tee. Club House facilities are good with a new and larger pro-shop (this year), changing rooms and a great restaurant located with a view of parts of the path from the terraces. Highly recommended!

  • A really nice place for golf. The rooms are both clean and spacious but almost empty. The decor is rather nice. I wasn't so keen on the food. A place for an older and retired crowd.
  • This is a good course. Open layout with some trees here and there. Two or three holes have some major elevation, the rest of the holes are level. Walking the course is doable, be prepared however the pull trolleys are terrible, old and shabby! You can hit most long holes draw, only two or three fade. The course is of average length. There are some lovely views of the ocean, I was however expecting more spectacle. October 2014 greens are in a terrible state. They do warn you at the start but there is no compensation. The course needs to be in a much better condition for the price they ask.
  • Nice layout but the par 3's are a clear after thought and are so tight to villa's it looks like they are more concerned with properties than the course. I liked many of the holes though, 3/4 were good but the reason for a 2 star is firstly the condition is not good enough, in fact it was poor and they never tell 4 balls to let 2 balls through when starting. As such, you get bored behind slow 4 balls. If you're not that good, think about those behind that might be and let them through. Too many courses fail to tell 4 balls this when they start, which is poor! This course is a prime example of why Spain will lose and lose badly versus a Turkish golf holiday!
  • We spent a great weekend at the hotel. The facilities are great, the field was in very good condition. The truth, very well throughout and also very good try. We will return the coming year!
