Hi Simon,

I want to say a big thank you to everybody at Desert Springs, for the fantastic way they looked after my Captain’s drive in day, the day was a brilliant success, and I want to thank everyone who was involved, my special thanks and appreciation goes to Javier who went above and beyond to make the day a huge success, he is without a doubt an asset to Desert Springs.

The Mayor of Cuevas del Almanzora, Antonio Fernández, thoroughly enjoyed Desert Springs hospitality and wishes to pass on his thanks to you, your staff, and the catering team for a wonderful meal.

I also wish to thank, the pro’s for giving their time to raise money for the charity, which in total amounted to €5,000 on the night.

Once again a very big thank you to you, and all at Desert Springs.

Kind Regards
Club Captain

Dear Simon,

I hope you are well.

I am writing to send my thanks to all of your staff for their hard work and effort in dealing with everything connected with the golf and the gala dinner for Club Championship.

It was my last event as Captain and one of the big days that many owners and members come to Desert Springs to be involved with and I am so grateful to everyone for helping to make the day and evening so successful

Oana, Kate, Juani and Fran all had a busy time dealing with golf registration and meal options and despite none of the reception team having dealt with a ‘big day’ at Desert Springs before, under Oana’s leadership, they all performed to the highest standard, always smiling and being totally professional and so helpful.

I would also like to highlight Javier and the F&B team for ensuring that everyone had an amazing evening. The meal was so delicious and the service was excellent. The level of customer care shown by every member of staff was exemplary.

I met several times with Javier, in advance of the evening, to make the arrangements and nothing was ever too much trouble and he is so calm and takes everything in his stride. Javier communicated with me regularly to advise and check on progress of the plans and to assist in any way he could.

Your staff are all a credit to you and to Desert Springs overall. Thank you to them all.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi Javier,

Just a quick note to acknowledge the effort of the kitchen and front of house teams who did the service at last night’s dinner.

The food was most enjoyable and the whole service as very efficiently “marshalled” by Juan and Luna – well done and thanks to all concerned.

Best wishes

Good morning Oana,

Would like to thank you for yesterday.

We love desert springs and the reception you gave us was great.

The ‘Hole-In-One’ was an added bonus so can you thank Alexandra for sorting my certificate.

So, thanks once again and Feliz Navidad.

Only one word identifies the place: STUNNING.

The location is splendid, the customer service is attentive and courteous, the table service is excellent.-

The menu is limited but complete and able to satisfy the most demanding palates; the wine list is also very good.-

I would like to recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a different day surrounded by greenery and in the open air, ending with a good lunch or a romantic dinner, even by candlelight.

Good evening Laura,

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you to you and the staff at Desert Springs.

The golf course was in fantastic condition. The greens were as good as we’ve played and between us we have played some amazing courses worldwide. The service was great from start to finish, Rihanna on reception, all of the staff in the bar/restaurant and the caddy masters/on course staff.

Please pass on our thanks. I would love to bring some clients for a coaching trip at some point soon so I’ll be in touch.

Kind regards,
