Perfect course, excellent service. Totally o.k.

James brooks2019-09-25
Great experience. Golf course and setting outstanding.

William Townson2019-09-06
What can be said of this premier establishment...service is the key to selling golf here. The course is true challenge with some unique holes from the great Jack Niclaus. Valet parking, shown around clubhouse, given a souvenir key ring, taken to the range, chipping and putting green, collected by the starter. Given yardage book, card pencils, water, etc. Buggy set up to yards, of we go. Always someone checking on you, food, etc. Cold towel lovely touch on back nine. Best bit is being presented with an engraved bag tag as you walk of the last green. It’s the attention to detail that makes the difference!

Paul Mustoe 2019-07-28
Great experience all round. Staff all exceptionally friendly and attentive. I understand it was a quiet day but it felt like we were virtually the only ones there. Only us and another 2 guys on the range, which was of good quality along with the short game practice area, and then only saw one other group on the course. I like the 12 min tee slots and no pairing up. Makes the whole round very relaxing. Course immaculate and both challenging but also playable! Whilst expensive, with buggy and range balls included, I would recommend it.

Franco Piergiovanni2019-06-21
The best course in Algarve. A little bit too far to drive.

Tony Abbott 2019-05-30
Simply the best on the Algarve . The staff are excellent the course is very challenging and in excellent condition. You always feel like you are the only people on the golf course. In a class of its own. Expensive but the Tapas deal is very good value for money when you consider you get an 8 course meal included . Practice area is fantastic we love it !!

Stuart young2019-04-20
If there was and 11 we would give it that

Mrs Teresa Gaughan2019-04-17
Monte Rei was the icing on the cake of 5 days of golf at 5 different courses. From arrival to departure it was a superb experience - staff, facilities and the course were exceptional. Only the weather could have been better but it couldn't dampen our spirits!

Dave Abbott2019-04-15
Words fail me how good this place is. Simply brilliant

WINKELMANN Brigitte2019-02-24
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.

Acacio do Carmo2019-02-14
A jouer absolument. Le monte Rei mérite son titre de plus beau golf du Portugal

Richard Sunderland2019-01-28
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.

Andrew Collings2018-11-09
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.

Adrian Thorogood2018-10-29
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.

Peter Elliot2018-10-20
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.

Terence2018-10-02
Amazing course and facilities. Staff treated us first class.

Billy Duncan2018-09-18
Great Course worth every penny

Robert Mcilroy2018-06-29
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

Gareth Toms2018-06-19
The best course on the Algarve by miles

Philip Halpenny 2018-05-17
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.

Michael Fahy 2018-05-12
Absolutely fantastic. From arrival to departure staff are courteous and helpful. Just a wonderful day enjoyed by all

John Franklin2018-03-14
Expensive but worth every cent

Jerry Crowley2018-03-13
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.

Tilman2017-11-16
Most iconic course on the algarve. A pure masterclass. Great service from the beginning to the end. A highend golfing experience!

Wolfgang Spreitzer2017-10-28
Everything just perfect. Fantastic golfcourse in pure tranquility. Hole 13 is one of the best golfholes in the world!

Jack Nicklaus2017-10-25
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.

Darren Howlett2017-07-03
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.

Andrew Collings2016-11-07
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.

Phil Clements2016-09-22
Absolutely first class. Could not fault it.

John Graham2016-09-12
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 .

Tibor Mlynka2019-11-15
dry fairways, inadequate price to the quality of the course

Nigel Lucas2019-11-12
Always an experience playing Monte Rei.....great staff, great course, all the extra touches make it a special day....even alignment sticks on the range now too. Greens not quite as fast as normal, but still true as ever.

Henry Nash2019-11-11
probably the best experience of hospitality and quality golf course.

Tony Calnan2019-10-31
First class course. Great ambiance in club house and with course staff. Extremely enjoyable

Jane Sheppard2019-10-28

What a great, with capital G, experience

Nick Fry2019-01-20
Excellent experience including hospitality of staff. Course immaculate. Greens fast & true

Andrew Watson 2018-11-19
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

Mikko Raunio2018-11-15
Best golf course in Portugal - WAU many times

Monica Young2018-10-08
An amazing golf course

Steve 2018-07-22
Still my favourite...

Sabina Yeo2018-05-24
Good course maintenance and great service

Steve Threader2018-05-20
Awesome course for sure but attention from the staff was also excellent too

Stewart Eden 2018-05-14
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.

Peter Heinecke2018-05-08
Just perfect!

Darren Gatward2018-05-03
Staff first class, course better than anywhere else in Portugal by some way. I couldn’t recommend this course more! #Stunning

Jonathan O'Neill2018-04-29
Outstanding course but very penal if slightly off line World class facilities

Stuart young2018-04-25
Just superb. Expensive but very worth it

Dave Abbott2018-04-10
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!

Kevin McGrath2018-04-10
Excellent course , facilities and service . Well worth the visit and will come again . Very friendly staff

Philip Townsend 2018-03-11
In spite of heavy rain the course was superb and we well well looked after.

Klaus-Dieter Feldmann2018-02-23
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.

Beate Heß2017-11-20
Great Course. Very nice People

João Moutinho2017-10-20

Martin Gallagher 2017-10-17
Top course, looked after us

Fraser Low2017-09-17
Superb experience from start to finish. Will continue to make the journey from vilamoura region each year - best course and service in the algarve

Ian Smith2017-08-19
Fantastic course. Very welcoming and helpful staff and a truly fantastic course.

Neil Rodgerson 2017-06-10
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.

Paul Pheby2017-05-24
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!

Martin Gallagher2017-02-21
Unfortunately the weather was bad - we were forced off the course because of heavy rain Thunder and Lightning, having completed just 1 hole

Paul Dickinson2017-02-02
Excellent

margaret platt2016-11-08
A very manicured golf course with wonderful views.

Tom Darcy2016-09-15
Best Course but greens were hollow tined

Tony Abbot2016-08-05
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

Nicholas Kjelgaard2016-06-26
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.

Peter Grant2016-04-16
Excellent course but very expensive

amr el cherif2016-03-21
monte rei best overall golf experience - excellent service

Paddy Duffy2016-03-15
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.

Alan Crooks2016-02-08
Worth a visit Staff a bit over the top but a fantastic course, not for high handicap golfers !

Pritpal Padam2015-12-27
excellent service and course in good condition

Barton Fields2015-12-07
World class golf course and service to match.Never get bored of this place.

Joerg Beringer2015-11-22
I don't like cart golf and US style intrusive servicing.

Nicola Mick-Kohler2015-11-15
super golf course

olga2015-11-13
Fabulous course. It deserves the price

Clive Sims2015-11-10
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

Doug Montgomery 2015-10-23
always a pleasure to visit and the course was in excellent condition - very enjoyable day despite the rain.

Brian Buckeridge 2015-10-16
best course in eastern portugal by a long way.

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-10-04
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.

Paul Brown (England)2010-09-05
This is the second time i have played Monte Rei The experience just gets better without doubt the most beautiful course I have ever played Every hole is a signature hole The course is always in perfect manicured condition And the staff the most helpful i have ever come across They say you pay for what you get but this course is worth every Euro paid Play it you will not be disappointed
