If you want convenience and luxury, Almancil offers some fantastic hotels with great amenities and golf packages. However if you’re traveling with a group of friends or family, you could potentially save money by renting a property. With a short-term rental, you’ll defer some expense by preparing your own meals, but you can use the saving towards higher-end courses.
Almancil is situated in the beautiful Algarve region of southern Portugal. There are a number of great activities to choose from besides golf including biking, 4-wheeling and horseback riding.

If you’re going to choose a hotel, they frequently offer packages that combine lodging and golf. Some hotels even include extras like free bike rentals or offer reduced rates on other services.
Be sure to search the many Portugal golf deal and package websites. Compare their rates against those of the hotels to find the best price available.
Almancil is close to the airport, which is a great benefit to those traveling internationally. Just 15 km from Faro International Airport, you can arrive to your destination in little time.
If you’re staying at a hotel, check with their concierge beforehand to determine if they offer transportation service to and from the airport. Taxis can take up to four people, however if you’re traveling with your golf clubs you may want to secure a rental car.
As you familiarize yourself with the individual courses that you choose to play, you may notice that many courses have a maximum handicap requirement. To ensure a golf experience without complications, you will want to bring multiple copies of your handicap certificate and consider sending it to the golf course prior to your round.
