Pousada do Setubal****

High above the town of Setubal perches the 15th Century Castello within which in the 1960's was created the Pousada de Sao Filipe.  The Pousada is a simple white building occupying about half of the original castle grounds and from its sunny patio you have fantastic views over Setubal and across the Sado estuary to the Troia peninsula with its outstanding golf course.

The Pousada is quite a simple affair in keeping with its historic surroundings; bedrooms are of average size and furnished with straightforward wooden beds chairs and wardrobes, bathrooms are bright and clean.

The restaurant is one of the main attractions, whether you eat in or outside, you are assured of superb food with a view to match.

There is also a lounge bar and a small games room with pool table. 

One of the most unique features of the hotel is the ancient blue and white tiled chapel, perhaps to pray for that course record...

Cars are parked at the foot of the castle from where there is a long flight of stone stairs up to the Pousada, don't worry the concierge will assist with your bags!

 

Please Note: The Pousada is currently closed for restructuring work but should open again soon...

Hotel do Mar**** - Sesimbra
Hotel do Mar**** - Sesimbra

Sesimbra is an older style Portuguese beach resort that has catered to thousands upon thousands of tourists over the years looking to profit from its stretch of sunny sandy beach.  The Hotel do Mar has one of the prime positions, at the western end of town cascading down the hillside to the sea.  The way the hotel is built backing into the hillside assures every room of a sea-view, if your room has a balcony so much the better (most rooms do at a small supplement).

Although an older hotel, the founder's family still run it and lavish sufficient care and attention on their pride and joy that it is always in tip top shape.

From the restaurant and bar with its wooden verandah there are lovely views over the beach and pool.  There is also an indoor pool in the spa area plus sauna and treatments available.

Lying to the West of Setubal, Sesimbra is well placed for the Quinta do Peru and Aroeira courses, getting across to Riba will take a little longer, but the main roads and motorway are good.

The Montado golf resort is just a little outside Setubal but handily placed for the main roads so getting to Riba and the other golf courses around Setubal is relatively easy.

The hotel is encircled by its own course, which is an entertaining test of golf and after your round you can reflect on your performance from the comfort of your balcony overlooking the still waters of the 18th lake.

The hotel has an indoor pool and small spa area, a friendly little clubhouse bar and a very good restaurant.  For dining out, a short drive into Setubal will be required.  Oenophiles should note that there are several of Portugal's finest vineyards close by.

Esperenca Centro*** -Setubal

If all you need for your golf holiday in Portugal is a simple, clean and tidy hotel that is surrounded by good golf and good restaurants, then the Esperenca Centro in the centre of Setubal (practically opposite the Troia ferry) will fit your bill nicely.

No pool or restaurant at this business-like hotel but there are many places to wine and dine in the streets all around the hotel.
