Monte Rei Golf Course, is set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. A truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, Monte Rei golf course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout. Monte Rei golf course presentation is highly individual, each hole a design gem blending effortlessly into this natural canvas, from its ingenious shape and sculptured bunkers, to the impressive presentation and attention to detail making every golf hole as remarkable as the next; fairways and greens are bordered by several lakes, indigenous plants, native grasses and trees adding drama to the landscape, and providing golfers with unforgettable moments to cherish in this unique and tranquil golf environment.
Our No 1 in Portugal. Quiet, very friendly staff. Greens are very fast; course in a good condition. You almost never see the other players; no direct sight from one hole to the other.

A jouer absolument. Le monte Rei mérite son titre de plus beau golf du Portugal
First Class, special place and fantastic customer service. Tremendous course, you feel like you are the only people on the course, the way holes are designed in almost their own valley.
We all really enjoyed played Monte Rei; by some way, the best course of the week. My fourth visit to Monte Rei and as usual excellent service and the course was in good condition. A very good day indeed.
Despite strong, high winds the course was in perfect condition and you are treated as royalty. The best thing is not having to wait on each tee, which is the case on many of the Algarve's overcrowded courses.
My third time here and I love the whole experience. Good design that allows every golfer no matter what handicap to enjoy the course. Don't be too ambitious with your choice of tee. All the staff are polite, helpful, and always smile.
Amazing course and facilities. Staff treated us first class.
Great Course worth every penny
wonderful course front 9 more scenic than back nine but the attention to detail is the real key from parking the car to having clubs on buggy to taking us to the range all superior customer service thoroughly recommended
The best course on the Algarve by miles

Loved it. Luckily, played well so very happy. Difficult for high handicapapers, especiall off gold tees. Wonderful reception from all staff, from front of house to gardeners on entry road.

Absolutely fantastic. From arrival to departure staff are courteous and helpful. Just a wonderful day enjoyed by all
Expensive but worth every cent
Myself and my friends had a wonderful experience at Monte Rei. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The course was in very good condition despite a lot of recent rain. Monte Rei is the best golf course I have ever played.
Most iconic course on the algarve. A pure masterclass. Great service from the beginning to the end. A highend golfing experience!
Everything just perfect. Fantastic golfcourse in pure tranquility. Hole 13 is one of the best golfholes in the world!
I believe it was 1989 when I made my first trip to Portugal to see this rugged piece of land in the Eastern Algarve. At that time, I immediately recognized the potential for us to design an extraordinary golf course. We had wonderful cooperation and support from the ownership of Monte Rei, because everyone shared a vision-one connected by a goal of achieving the highest level of quality and excellence.
Fantastic experience, from the minute you arrive and are made to feel welcome, to the pre round introduction, complimentary range balls, 12 minute tee times, the amazing course itself with some stunning holes to the personalised gift at the end. Expensive but a great experience.
What a superb golf course. The service at Monte Rei is second to none - from the moment you arrive until you depart you are very well looked after by the team there. A truly exceptional experience.
Absolutely first class. Could not fault it.
the golf course was amazing , the staff made us feel welcome and they could not do enough for you. when you consider the cost of the game for the day it is not really that expensive when you consider the experience , buggies ,driving range and tapas lunch .
Excellent experience including hospitality of staff. Course immaculate. Greens fast & true

Service was excellent. Course was interesting although it relied on water rather than natural terrain which is a feature of courses designed by Jack Nicklaus. It was an excellent venue although I personally feel that there are better courses in Portugal
Best golf course in Portugal - WAU many times
An amazing golf course
Still my favourite...
First class service from moment of arrival through to leaving the course/club house. A must play golf course.
Good course maintenance and great service
Awesome course for sure but attention from the staff was also excellent too

In all aspects apart from 1, Monte Rei was a fantastic experience. The Staff were all excellent and we were made to feel special which is important considering the price tag! The course was in excellent condition. A truly memorable day. However we had an issue with our breakfast which I will communicate directly to Monte Rei.
Staff first class, course better than anywhere else in Portugal by some way. I couldn’t recommend this course more! #Stunning
Outstanding course but very penal if slightly off line World class facilities
Just superb. Expensive but very worth it
It is the best golf course I've played. Each hole is brilliantly designed. I can't find fault if I tried. Monte Rei is a must for any golfer who loves the game, fantastic course and facilities. Brilliantly looked after before, during and afterwards. I'll be back!
Excellent course , facilities and service . Well worth the visit and will come again . Very friendly staff

In spite of heavy rain the course was superb and we well well looked after.
Even the course was quite dry conditions good. Very friendly welcome and staff everywhere. As the group of four player often with pressure from the back from single or two players. But without difficulties. Overall that was not a busy day.
Great Course. Very nice People
Nous avons été satisfait
Excellent condition and service but outside twilight a little expensive
Martin Gallagher 2017-10-17
Top course, looked after us
Tremendous course and was empty the day we played. Great facilities and you are well looked after. That was our 3rd visit and it gets better every year. Rated this 2nd
Superb experience from start to finish. Will continue to make the journey from vilamoura region each year - best course and service in the algarve
Fantastic course. Very welcoming and helpful staff and a truly fantastic course.

Fantastic experience from pulling up at the clubhouse to leaving. Best course anywhere I have played. Great value at 150euros. 220 is too expensive for me.
6 star service unrivalled anywhere in I've played in Europe. Truly sublime course. I have played many and this is the best of them all!
Unfortunately the weather was bad - we were forced off the course because of heavy rain Thunder and Lightning, having completed just 1 hole
A very manicured golf course with wonderful views.
Best Course but greens were hollow tined
By far the best gold course in the Algarve I love it. The whole experience staff are very courteous, the food is good too. Would love to see more offers from them as Monte is very expensive. Perhaps a bigger discount if you play it twice or something? I love the early ticket before 9.30am where you get Tapas included. This is very good indeed.
Franco Di Fonzo 2016-07-06
Monte Rei is unique. Played three times and is always the best course of Algarve
A great experience, there was a VIP group playing in front who stopped for lunch after nine which meant we had to weight, however the course provided us with a free drink to compensate. The course is great the service exceptional and very much worth doing this once.
Excellent course but very expensive

monte rei best overall golf experience - excellent service
Monte Rei was superb and service outstanding. We will definitely return. Course was excellent and the 12 minute time gaps is very comfortable. Everyone was very welcoming and we appreciated all the attention to detail.
Worth a visit Staff a bit over the top but a fantastic course, not for high handicap golfers !
excellent service and course in good condition
World class golf course and service to match.Never get bored of this place.
I don't like cart golf and US style intrusive servicing.
super golf course
Fabulous course. It deserves the price
Unfortunately it was cancelled after 3 holes due to bad weather. Monte Rei gave us a twilight voucher valid for one year.
Adrian Thorogood 2015-11-02
A great experience and fantastic course. One of the best I've played on and in excellent condition

This week, with the start of the Ryder Cup 2012, we were that much more inspired and so we played on the Sunday to be able to go back and watch the singles competition. We played at Salgados Golf Course, just north of Albufeira, set in a beautiful nature reserve by the sea. An ensemble of 15 players gathered under the beautiful Algarve skyes, the perfect conditions to golf in. As you may know, Salgados golf course is rather tricky when the coastal winds pick up. The course was in great shape with impecable fairways and greens - the rough, which was quite deep and punished at times a wayward shot. We played in the morning and the course was rather quiet, which allowed us to get around in a reasonable time. A great sightseeing course, populated by a vast number of migratory bird species that often come to watch you play.
