All this is just to say thanks to your great team¡

After such a long delay we at last visited our villa at Desert Springs last week.

We were worried about many things –  many people had had access to redecorate, change some major plumbing fitments, clean and prepare for our arrival.

What a pleasant surprise!

The villa was immaculate, the painting was excellent, the plumbing excellent and the villa looked like we had been there all along!

We congratulate Leticia on her management of all these activities.

We were most impressed with the new arrangements at El Torrente where the staff were friendly, professional and efficient, a good compliment to the cuisine which was excellent. Golf reception was also up to the usual high standard.

All this is just to say thanks to your great team¡

Dinner at El Torrente

There is a wide choice of lovely and well presented food on the menu which is great value for money. The manager Adria and his team go out of their way to make a visit to the restaurant a great experience in a wonderful location.

They were proactive and have been fantastic and I can’t imagine what we would have done without them

We arrived here in DS just over a week ago and we are all so happy to be back. We are so grateful to the property management team and the green keepers for keeping the resort and golf course  looking fantastic over the last 18 months in the most unprecedented times. We would especially like to thank Brigid, Juani, Leticia and Juan Diego for looking after the villa. They have arranged for the villa to be painted, arranged maintenance work, the patio was cleaned and the furniture covered with plastic and the villa was immaculate when we arrived. They were proactive and have been fantastic and I can’t imagine what we would have done without them.

A pleasant evening

I hadn’t been back to this restaurant since 2010 when my experience wasn’t very good. But I went back yesterday with some friends and our children to whom I wanted to show the place and the surroundings, which I remembered as very original and pleasant, and also encouraged by some positive opinions I had read here, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that both the service and the food had changed for the better. I didn’t ask if the management has changed, but in any case we had a great evening, and the price seemed very reasonable for the good food we had. I hope to return soon.

It went above our expectations!

We took our parents as a suprise to El Torrente and the food, ambiance and service were perfect! We all took the Chef’s menu which exists of three choices for each course, the ones we chose were delicious! The portions are great and you can tell the chef has worked for a Michelin star restaurant. The service was great, the staff was nice and knew exactly when to come to the table. Apart from that the restaurant hosts special nights with music and entertainment. Overall a must go!

Great Experience!

We are looking to buy in the area and wanted to try few of the DS facilities before making our mind up. We decided to book a table for dinner at El Torrente. The reservation process was easy and straight forward. The manager (Adria) was also able, at short notice to accommodate our request regarding dining with our dog. The setting on the restaurant deck offers some really lovely views towards the golf course. Now to the food: we both had the chef menu and it was great! All the courses were full of flavours and beautifully presented. The service have been outstanding, attentive and friendly. If I was to comment on something would be the lighting. It did get quite dark out there so if they can sort something out without loosing the atmosphere it would definitely add to the whole experience which is already top notch.
We look forward to go back and hopefully it will become our local restaurant in the near future.

Hi Oana,

I just thought that I would send an email about our visit last Thursday.

Firstly, a big Thank you for inviting us back.

All of the players found the course to be in impeccable order and thoroughly enjoyed playing it at its best.

The fairways and greens were faultless.

I would like to thank all involved for a great day’s golf on a course which is one of the best we have played.

Once again thank you for an excellent day and service from all involved.

Golf Gem In The Desert

Located in the region of Almeria, this golf resort was a splendid experience.

The grounds are truly stunning, there are so many attentions to detail, the reception at the clubhouse was professional and welcoming.

The buggy was in pristine condition.

Each hole is varied and challenging, the views are breath-taking.

We would certainly consider returning for a spring or autumn break.

We highly recommend you visit this unique Arizona style golf.

All of our Amigos were certainly impressed and will talk about it for some time to come.  

Hola Oana,

What a shame I missed you on Thursday!

I have to say that all of our pre-game plans and arrangements, playing conditions, quality of accommodation and bar, restaurant and all-round service fully met with our expectations.

You even managed to provide spectacular weather for us too!

All of our Amigos were certainly impressed and will talk about it for some time to come.

Desert Springs proved an excellent choice for the event.

We all have had to deal with very difficult and trying conditions for well over a year but at least those that made the event will take away a memory but feel a bit sad for those who couldn’t manage to make it this time.

Thank you Oana and all of your colleagues.

Muchas gracias


On behalf of Amigos Organisers who all look forward to playing at Desert Springs in the future.

Again, a great meal, so glad it’s open again.

Good Morning Simon,


We have arrived back at Desert Springs and feel we need to send you a few comments.

The course is absolutely magnificent, Zach has done a great job establishing the new fairway and rough grass.

Also, the work on clearing all the old vegetation and weeds is making the course look first class.

Adria ran his first Sunday lunch event yesterday which looked to be a sell-out, it was well organised, and Sergio’s food was very high standard.

Jose Vioque Lorenzo

Delegate of Guadalajara. Castilla la Mancha Golf Federation

The golf course is in perfect condition, well preserved, demanding and highly technical, fast and well defended greens, with winding fairways.

A challenge in every shot.

Thanks for your attention.


Javier Blanco Pérez

Youth Committee of Castilla la Mancha Golf Federation

A great course, well maintained, excellent greens, technical and difficult, made even more so with the wind.

In short, a first-class course and excellent service.

Thanks for everything.


Joaquín Ángel Mínguez Cano

Professional Committee of the Castilla la Mancha Golf Federation

A great course, very technical and at the same time pleasant to play for its environment and maintenance work.

Very good service in the Clubhouse, a shame not being able to enjoy the facilities of the restaurant due to present Covid-19 restrictions that also presents an ideal environment.


Fernando Cebrián Tapia

Secretary of the Castilla la Mancha Golf Federation

The course is well maintained, it is very intrepid and unusual.

The attention of the staff has been outstanding.

It is a very technical and varied course.

Thank you very much for your attention.

The Indiana course is within the middle of the Almeria desert and playing it is an experience from the moment you enter the Resort.

I have found the course in very good condition.

Over-seeding a few months ago makes the course attractive (green) during this time of year.

I have found the greens excellent, and the ball rolls wonderfully.

The practice area seems wonderful to me.

The practice tee allows you to hit balls from the grass and there are three greens to practice the short game; 2 putting greens, and 1 chipping green, all in very good condition and with tranquillity in the background, due to the location of the academy.

I recommend coming to Desert Springs to live the experience of playing golf in the middle of the desert.




The Indiana course is integrated within the middle of nature with a tremendous diversity of plants and trees, a challenge for any type of player.

I totally recommend Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club, it is top quality.
