We had a lovely time at Penina. It was very quiet while we were there, the hotel had very few guests so the atmosphere was extremely calm and sombre. Breakfast was particularly fantastic, the bars were ok but too quiet to make them enjoyable. Our room was lovely with a great balcony, though I’d have preferred to have been given the choice of single or double beds.
Penina stands out among the golf resorts of the Algarve as a truly epic destination, being one of the best resorts in not just Portugal, but all of Europe.
