Golf Holiday to Gran Canaria including hotel, golf and transfers (11 persons)

Thanks again for all your help. You were great. We all had a wonderful holiday and plan on going again next year!
One hiccup, though, was that one other couple and ourselves didn’t have a sea view due to the palm trees that blocked it. The other couple moved to a better view room but the other room offered to me, although on the fifth floor, was still blocked with palms, so we stayed where we were.
The [H10 Playa Meloneras] hotel admin said that they sell the rooms, although blocked by palms, as rooms with a view.
Kind regards,

Golf Holiday to Fuerteventura (1 person)

The [Sheraton Fuerteventura] hotel and [Fuerteventura] golf course were superb, the staff at both were wonderful. The winds gusting to 80 km/hour made for some great fun and memories which will live on - sad for the people who cancelled on the Tuesday because of the wind, great for me because I could get a buggy ! On the Monday, we had rain on the 6th and hail on the 8th and impossible to get the waterproofs on because of the wind. Clothes dried by around the 15th, except the socks which were still wet on return to the hotel ! As a result, I barely made it up the hill of 17th and to 18th. I should perhaps have done a bit more research, but it could be worth advising others, particularly those of us with ageing bones, that the finish is tough and to consider a buggy. Maybe worth adding as a booking option if you can pre-book with the club, as they are in limited supply.

No complaints, excellent !

Group Golf Holiday to Gran Canaria (11 people)

Thanks very much, Carol. We now have vouchers for [H10 Playa Meloneras] hotel, [Maspalomas and Meloneras] golf and [private bus] transport and that seems to be all that we need! If anything comes to mind, you will be the first to know!
You were great to liaise with and couldn't have been more helpful. I will contact you after the hol with, hopefully, all the good news about it.

Golf holiday to Tenerife (2 people)

These few lines to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Tenerife and that your organization as well as with the [Sheraton La Caleta] hotel and all the tee times [at Buenavista, Costa Adeje, Golf del Sur and Las Americas] worked out perfectly!
Thank you very much!

The Sheraton [La Caleta] was perfect and an excellent choice! The pool was really heated to an acceptable temperature of 27-28 C. We visited also other hotels and not all of them had a temperate pool. For example Abama had several pools but not even one of them was warmer than 26 C.

What I am always missing in the advertisements of all the hotels is the temperature of the pools they offer. This could really be used to choose out of all the offers and make decision easier for the customers!

For us its always one of the decision factors and if you know about other hotels which really heat there pools ( Canary islands or other Golf destinations) I would be happy to get some names from you.

Take care and perhaps there will be some future occasions

Golf Holiday to Spain and Portugal (4 people)

Everything was organized perfectly , Again :)
[Senator] Cadiz hotel was very good, parking was quite expensive 70€ three night ( not any whole day), because our car Peugeot 508 did not fit in hotels garage ( or lift to garage) and we did not like far away parking places, Cadiz old town has no room for cars. You can recommend hotel.
[Marina Club] Lagos hotel was good+ , rooms were big and nice, full kitchen and so on. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok. You can recommend.
[Melia Costa del Sol] Torremolinos Hotel was absolutely nice, rooms were just renewed and when I asked about that, they said that they renew hotel +0.all the time. Bre
akfast was very very good. Also they have car parking 12€/day. You can 0be sure to recommend this hotel.
Golf courses:
GOLF LA ESTANCIA was nice course , good condition and not bad walking course.
BOAVISTA was hard to walk ( first round) , long transit from many fairways to next fairway and also lot of going up and down, we took buggy next time. Course was in good condition although there has been no rain in six month.
PALMERAS was also hard to walk (first round, others with buggy) long transits and up and down also on this course. Greens were good, but fairways was like concrete because lack of water.
ESPICHE was best of Portugal courses, Greens and fairways was excellent, Staff was super and clubhouse wonderful. This course could go also walking at this time, but earlier when it is more hot, the buggy is must.
PARADOR was in its normal condition, so in good condition.
So many thanks again for this holiday, next holiday will be 1.3.2018

and after that I will retire :)
November 2018 we have planned two week golf trip to Florida, have You any contacts there?

Golf Holiday to Ireland (2 people)

We had a great trip, wonderful hotels etc.

Best things though was the golf courses – especially Ballybunion was an experience.

Golf Holiday to Costa Blanca, Spain (8 people)

Thank you so much for organising such a fantastic golf trip. It was really
so well organised from start to finish. The [Servigroup La Zenia] hotel and staff were brilliant
and the [Lo Romero, Mar Menor, Las Colinas, La Finca, and Hacienda Riquelme] golf courses were top notch. Also, our travel arangements were first class.
Everyone had such a great time.
Thanks again Carol, and looking forward to arranging our 2018 trip with you help.

Kind regards,

Golf holiday to Mallorca, Spain (2 people)

siamo tornati da Maiorca e, come sempre, è and­ato tutto benissimo, la tua organizzazio­ne è impeccabile! Co­mplimenti!
Potresti consigliar­ci qualche pacchetto, anche semi-all inc­lusive, per il perio­do dal 1 settembre in avanti?
Non troppo lontano dall'Italia, al mass­imo a due ore di vol­o. Ci sono delle off­erte interessanti?
Ti ringrazio fin d'­ora e resto in attesa di tue notizie.

Golf holiday to Costa Blanca, Spain (2 people)

Just a note to say, thanks for the booking.

The Vista Bella still has not opened the other holes, they think it will be about November now, still a very good course.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing the fabulous Colinas course, it was very, very busy and slow, but still very enjoyable.

The LA Finca course, played well, the greens and course was not up to the standard last and previous years, and the rest of the site was
to say the least neglected, and scruffy. Dirty buggies with rubbish still in them from previous players. We were some whatdisappointed, and wonder if you have had any other reports on this course.

Golf on La Finca, Las Colinas, Villamartin - Costa Blanca, Spain (6 person)

Just returned from our golf trip and would like to thank all of you for such
a quick response all went well very enjoyable golf trip.

Once again thank you for all your help will be in touch for our next trip.

Paul, UK, June 18, 2017

Golf and transfers in Costa Blanca, Spain (11 people)

As always all things were flawless from your side.
All transportation were perfect, as always, and 4 out of 5 Golf courses were fantastic.

Something to actually follow up, is our welcome at Lo Romero:
When we arrived the Pro Shop, the person there, said; “Mr. *****, 11 players and 6 Buggies. That’s €196 for the Buggies please.”
Not even a welcome.
And not checked if buggies were prepaid, as we always have… I don’t know if this is because of unclear messages from you, or what is it….
And they also pushed in at least 3 groups in before us, and we were 40-45 min delayed for our tee time.

And even thought La Finca is a great course, they could have noticed us, that the greens on the first 9 holes, were holed and sanded that morning…
Back nine were totally different with great greens.

And next year, you could promise us a little better weather ;) 13 degrades, rain and quite windy, isn’t what we hope for when going from freezing Norway, to warm spain ;)
Other than that, this was as always a great vacation.

So thanks to all of you in Golf Sun Holidays, for yet again making this a golf trip without concerns for us.
Everything went as planned, and some great golf were played :)

Rune, Norway, May 18, 2017

Golf on Gran Canaria (4 people)

We were very pleased with the arrangements which you made for us. The receptionist at Anfi Tauro remarked on how efficient the booking process was and the clarity of the communications. Well done.
Anfi had just dressed their greens so they were slower than usual. A reduction in the buggy price on both days of our visit as compensation was very welcome. It's such a spectacular course and always in excellent condition. Pace of play was acceptable and, despite the top dressing, the greens ran true.
As usual the penalty for wayward tee shots was severe. Your clients would be well advised to stock up on balls before a visit. Lost balls are a small price to pay for the stunning views, especially from the 13th and 17th tees.
The staff in the pro shop were friendly and helpful. If you can negotiate discounts for your clients, I'd appreciate it for my next visit. I couldn't get my wife out of the shop!
Meloneras was better than I remembered. I must have played poorly on previous visits! Their greens had been dressed in the week before our arrival and were getting back into good shape. The grain on the greens took a little getting used to. The place was a hive of activity as the tees were being hollow tined on the second day of our visit. It didn't affect our game, nor detract from the enjoyment of the course which, although lacking the spectacle of Anfi, is still a superb layout. The pictures on their website don't do the place justice. The stretch along the cliff top is very picturesque. That explains the many photo breaks which some parties took. It didn't help the pace of play but it is only to be expected.
Again the staff in the pro shop were excellent. I borrowed a Taylormade M1 driver on the second day. Sadly it didn't help and my wayward drives were punished. Fewer lost balls but any stray shots are punished by the placement of the palms.
We hope to return next May (or sooner if possible) and will certainly be using Golf Sun Holidays for our golf bookings. I think a 10 day stay will be required if we are to combine some of the other attractions with golf. I'll be in touch when our plans are firmed up.
Once again thank you for all of your efforts. Please feel free to quote any of our comments if you wish.

Peter, UK, May 13, 2017

Golf holiday to Costa del Sol, Spain (2 people)

we had a really good week, the [Los Monteros] hotel was great if not a bit pricey a bit too far away from any attractions if one did not have a vehicle. The golf [at Santa Clara and Marbella Golf & CC] was outstanding, everyone was lovely and we shall definitely visit again, maybe next spring.
Thanks for all you did, much appreciated.

Maureen, UK, May 13, 2017

Thanks for your email, I am very satisfied with your service and golf course.

Best regards

It was all great thanks Daniel - we loved it all.

Wattie, May 13, 2017

Golf in Costa del Sol, Spain (4 people)

We came back happy and with very good experience. Weather was excellent for
golf, [La Cala Asia, Parador Malaga, Lauro, Calanova, Guadalhorce] golf courses were great and our game was not bad. We avoid golfcourses close to airport in the future, nevertheless they are nice. Car rental company Kaddy was good and friendly. Hotel La Fonda Benalmadena
Pueblo we choose is extremely nice and the village is an good option for
traveller who like some additional value. The after golf atmosphere in the
historical village is completely different from the costal mass hotels. Many
thanks for your assistance,

Kind regards

Just a quick thank you for booking our golf break.
Although due to a family bereavement 1 of our group had to fly home early and missed the last 2 days golf. The clubs were good about it and gave us a free buggy.

Thanks Again.

I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you for all the excellent service you gave us when booking this trip. We have now been home for a week and certainly miss the lovely weather and the daily round of golf!
We were very happy with the stay at the Sheraton Salobre and will most likely return in the future.

Once again - thank you for 5 star service!

With my very best -
