    Golf courses were great and that was the only good thing about the hotel.the hotel itself is dated,
    overpriced food £15 for a cheese toastie,£6 for small chips, £5 energy drink.
    no entertainment in hotel at all.
    The hotel is really for the older golfer as us being in our 30s very out off place.

    The availability of tv viewing of the Masters was far from satisfactory .Penina closed the Henry Coton lounge with the large screen (this was closed to guests on the last two nights of the golf one could only see the golf if you purchased a meal in the restaurant( with limited viewing at many tables).This was seen by many as a cynical money-making move on the part of Penina

    I had just finished writing a letter of thanks to the General Manager when I received this e mail. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by spending a week playing golf at the Penina and the hotel and especially the staff made it a great experience.

    One of the few jarring notes of the whole stay was when one evening my wife was waiting for me to return from parking the car and she had to endure for 3-4 minutes the appalling language of a visiting young British male golf guest - part of a group of 4 males staying at the hotel who stood close by. As an ex Army officers wife she is used to soldiers language so was surprised and irritated at the nature of his foul language in such a public place. Fortunately as I re-joined her she decided to tell the individual his language wasw una acceptable and I also informed the reception staff.

    I really hope this group were not booking through you but it would be useful in your guest information pack to make clear that those who visit Penina understand that the usual standards of polite language applied in the every UK official golf club should also be adhered to abroad.

    However everyone else we met there - whatever their background was really friendly and you will be pleased to learn that we already plan to return either in October or next April and the current intent is to book with Golf Breaks.

    As a useful suggestion for those visiting we would recommend that people take time to play the Academy course though short it has longer holes and is more technically difficult than its name would suggest and is much quieter than the resort or championship course. It really tests the accuracy of your game a useful warm up for later taking on the Championship course.

    Finally it would have been useful to know in advance that the EDGA championship was on during our stay as although it was great to watch it also impacted slightly adversely on our and other guests golfing experience for 3 days.

    Many thanks for a great week
