Paul Muumford – ALGARVE – OCT 2018

Hi Dianne

All went very well and all had an excellent time.  ( one near miss with a lost phone hour before pick up but all sorted in the end after us chasing the taxi with said phone in it all over Albueferia ! )

Some feedback for you that might help with future groups.

Hotel complex,   excellent facility,  perfect for this type of group,  some of the rooms are a little bit tired but nothing extreme or significant to be critical.   All staff really helpful and they let us have a late checkout on one room to help with pick up time…

Transfers  –   Transfair were brilliant,  always there early and happy to change time at drop of hat when we finished earlier than expected on one round.  Vans in very good condition and drivers all very pleasant and helpful.   I really would recommend them to anyone in the future,  in fact we might use them when I go back for family holiday in May 19.     It was them that helped us chase that Taxi round.

Courses  –    All good and different,      Salgados – lots of water and therefore very tight but good course.    Espiche  –  superb course with some of the best greens I have ever played on.  However very very tight and difficult.  I would suggest that if only very high handicappers playing (say 16+)  then this would be too difficult and not enjoyable.   I play of single figures and found it very tough. ( and I wasn’t hungover ! )     Alamos  –  Another good course,  much more forgiving than the other 2 and for that reason a number of our group thought this was the best.   This course would suit all.

So all in all fantastic trip and I have a funny feeling that we might end up looking at Portugal again in the new year for next October.

Thanks for all your help.
