• Overview


    The Robinson 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.


    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 transplanted in order to maintain the ancient border of the Quinta da Ria Golf Course and the typical features of the region landscape.


    Compared to Quinta da Ria, the Quinta de Cima Golf Course 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.

    Quinta do Lago Golf Club – South Course

    The Quinta do Lago South course is the crown jewel of Quinta do Lago. Designed in 1974 by William Mitchell, who introduced American-standard greens, tees and bunkers to the Algarve. Soon the course gained a prestigious reputation and became a flagship in the European Tour Course. A favourite among European tour players, the 6,500 metre par 72 course is set among umbrella pines, lakes and wild flowers, overlooking the serene Ria Formosa National Park.  The South course has hosted the Portuguese Open eight times, including Colin Montgomerie’s win in 1989.  Having won 24 under par, he finished 11 strokes ahead and broke the world record with a round of 63.
