If you are looking for excellent resorts with excellent golf courses and leisure facilities, look no further than one of these properties for your next golf break.
Hotel Alicante Golf
Hotel Alicante Golf is a four-star resort that boasts an excellent location in Playa de San Juan, where you can find a great array of bars and restaurants to enjoy and is only a 10-minute tram ride away from the city centre of Alicante.
During the day, you can enjoy relaxing on the beach, which is just a 10-minute walk away or a free transfer from the hotel during July and August, or you can enjoy relaxing around the outdoor pool. Many different types of rooms will suit everyone at the hotel, including double, twin and family rooms and suites so that whoever you are travelling with will be comfortable and well catered for.
Alicante Golf Club was designed by Steve Ballesteros and consists of six par-3s, six par-4s and six par-5s, which means that there is a real variety in layout as well as length for each hole. Since the course opened in 1998, there have been additions to the course in the way of artificial lakes and rivers which have increased the difficulty of the course. The course isn’t overly difficult but isn’t an easy round of golf by any stretch of the imagination and you must play strategically if you hope to leave with a good scorecard!
With Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, a large outdoor swimming pool, many different restaurants and bars, a gym, a Wellness Centre and an indoor swimming pool as well as the fantastic 18-hole golf course on-site, it is no surprise that we recommend this resort for your next stay-and-play golf escape.
