Our View of the Penina Resort for Your Next Golf Break:

We visit Penina frequently during our trips to the Algarve and, in our opinion, this is one of the best on offer. Penina was the original golf resort in the Algarve and still maintains that traditional style. It has almost legendary status among golfers. We found the resort tranquil and relaxing, with 360 acres of beautifully manicured grounds overlooking the championship course. It’s just under an hour's drive from Faro International Airport. When driving through the entrance, you immediately feel at home. The hotel has such a welcoming atmosphere.

This is one of our favourite hotels and, in our opinion, one of the best on offer in the Algarve. It is also an ideal venue for golfers, with its own three golf courses on-site. In our view, the resort offers a lot for families too, including the largest swimming pool in the Algarve, which is genuinely impressive. Once you've tried it, you'll understand the hype even more and want to come back again and again.

Peter B
Great customer service and great value for money. The customer service was excellent. I had to amend my booking several times but nothing was too much trouble. Could not fault them and Maria was excellent. Great value for money compared with other providers
Phil H
Lots of e-mail contact, so immediately after we had paid the money, I didn't feel we had been abandoned to get on with it. Yes, the taxi/transfer service in Portugal was punctual and polite. On the first evening, our minibus had a puncture on the motorway, but we stopped safely and the team took care of sorting it out and getting us to the hotel with minimal fuss or delay.
