Penina Hotel & Golf Resort
One of Europe's most famous golf resorts and with a loyal following, the Penina is a most elegant and welcoming hotel. Guests return year after year to Penina; it is easily the highest-ranking hotel among our clientele for repeat visits. With unbeatable service, fantastic leisure facilities and a world-renowned golf course next door, it comes as no surprise that the Penina was voted "Portugal's Leading Golf Resort" and "Portugal's Leading Resort" in the 2012 World Travel Awards.
For years, the hotel was known as Le Meridien Penina, but the hotel became independent at the beginning of October 2013. The high standards of service remain, and despite much modernisation and refurbishment over the years, the hotel has kept its unique charm and character. If you can drag yourselves away from the superb leisure and golf facilities here, the pretty village of Alvor with its lovely beach and excellent selection of restaurants and shops is just five minutes’ drive away, and the interesting towns of Lagos and Portimao are just ten minutes from the resort. Portimao is known for its stunning beaches and is widely considered to be the best golfing destination in the Algarve.
Penina Championship course has been a regular venue for the PGA Tour's Portuguese Open; a true testament to its impeccable quality. Conveniently for guests at this hotel, the first tee is just a few yards from the hotel, and the course is an excellent test of golf with numerous trees, water hazards, bunkers, big greens and large teeing areas. Alternatively, the Penina Resort course is not as challenging as the Championship golf course, however it still poses as a good challenge to the best of golfers.
