Why You Should Consider Staying At Aqua Pedra Dos Bicos Golf Hotel
Those people thinking about a golf holiday on the Algarve often look at Albufeira as a base. It offers a vibrant nightlife, the beach and sea a short walk away and of course an excellent base for golf. The Algarve is a fairly compact area with all its courses fairly accessible. Faro Airport has regular flights from many regional airports further north and Albufeira is just a short transfer away from Albufeira.
The courses themselves can be booked in advance and likewise it is fun to arrange the whole holiday online. Something has to brighten up the dark nights of winter and planning a holiday in a warmer climate in the months to come can brighten your mood.
When it comes to a place to stay there are several reasons why somewhere like Aqua Pedra dos Bicos is worth serious consideration:
- It is a modern hotel, built just a few years ago.
- Its location means it is just a short walk away from the heart of the town’s nightlife
- The beach and sea I equally close
- The hotel’s restaurant, Restaurante Serenata offers cuisine that will impress every day of the holiday.
- A four star hotel in such an ideal location is the perfect choice for those wishing to enjoy golf on the Algarve. The courses closest to Albufeira are:
- Balaia is a beautiful 9 hole course but it is easy to arrange to play round twice. It is an excellent test of a golfer’s irons which certainly will help those playing a longer course later.
- Pine Cliffs, another 9 holes, is in a stunning setting on cliffs close to Albufeira. The 9th hole over a ravine is a great hole.
- Nick Faldo’s design at Amendoeira demands good course management. The terrain is unlike anything UK golfers will have come across before; rocky, scrub bunkers, cacti and watercourses.
- Christy O’Connor’s neighbouring course is certainly a contrast set on lush and fertile ground with lakes and watercourses.
- Salgados is close in style to links course found in other countries but brings with it the sun as well.
- The courses provide rich variety for a golf holiday which a good quality hotel like Aqua Pedra dos Bicos more than compliments. There are even a couple of suites for those who want real luxury for their holiday break. That is not a necessity because the whole facility provides an ideal environment in which to relax.
