• Overview


    The Robinsons Club, opened in 2008, presents a superb combination of quality accommodation, service, cuisine and facilities.  The resort simply provides the very highest standards on all fronts.   The resort is also very close to the charming Algarve town of Tavira.  The bedrooms are modern in style and come equipped with two bathrooms, one of which features a shower.  In-room amenities include a hairdryer, a make-up mirror, a direct dial telephone, a safety deposit box, a mini bar, satellite TV and an individually regulated air conditioning and a heating system.  Internet access is available, and the beds are double or king-size.  Balconies and terraces also feature.  The hotel features an outdoor pool and a heated indoor pool and the well equipped gym has ocean views.  There are also four tennis courts, a spa area with two saunas, steam rooms and a solarium.  The terms of stay at the hotel are now ‘All Inclusive’ which encompasses breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks throughout the day and all but a few drinks.  Both Quinta da Ria Golf Club and Quinta da Cima Golf Club are located on-site.

    Quinta da Ria Golf Club

    The Quinta da Ria course is a wonderful golf course located on a cliff overlooking the most beautiful inlet of the Ria Formosa nature reserve and the Atlantic Ocean.  The absence of building sites and excellent green keeping make it an excellent golf course to play and to enjoy the spectacular views.  The course comprises of two loops of 9 holes. Five lakes present various challenges as the round unfolds.  The greens are undulating and well protected by bunkers. More than 300 trees, such as olive and carob trees have been planted in order to maintain the ancient border of the Quinta da Ria Golf Course and the typical features of the regional landscape.

    Quinta da Cima Golf Club

    Quinta de Cima looks and plays more like a top tournament course.  This is not only a matter of length but also balance and difficulty of holes. From the very first tee of Quinta de Cima we will need to carefully consider our game strategy, with choice of club and ball trajectory.  Hazards are definitely very much in play on all holes, whether it is the well designed and cleverly located bunkers or the water hazards in the shape of lakes, streams and ditches.

    Monte Rei Golf Club 

    Set in 1,000 acres in the Eastern Algarve, between the Serra do Caldeirão mountains and the Atlantic Ocean lies a haven of peace and tranquillity that is the jewel in the crown of Portuguese Golf, the Monte Rei Golf and Country Club.  This Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is consistently rated number one in Portugal, with the course complimented by a magnificent clubhouse.   Jack Nicklaus is arguably the finest player ever to pick up a golf club. After retiring from the professional game in 2005 with 73 PGA wins (including 18 majors) under his belt, the Golden Bear became synonymous with the design and development of top-flight courses across the globe. A legend of the game, Golf Inc. voted Nicklaus the Most Powerful Person in Golf for four straight years between 2004 and 2007.  His Signature course at Monte Rei Golf and Country Club is regularly ranked as the best and most exclusive course in Portugal, the home of European golf, and has been challenging players of all abilities and handicaps from across the world since 2007.  The golf offering at Monte Rei is unrivaled in the region. The breathtaking Jack Nicklaus Signature course together with highest levels of service make for an experience like no other.
