“Desert Springs Delivers Again”
This was my 3rd visit to the beautiful Desert Springs Resort and I had yet another superb time.
On this occasion I went with three friends and we enjoyed making full use of the facilities, including the tennis courts, paddle tennis courts (this proved particularly competitive) and gym, as well as of course the range and golf course.
Whilst not a great golfer myself (in fact a very poor golfer), my friends who play more often than I, thought that the course was in fantastic condition and loved the design and variability of the holes. The setting is quite breath-taking so even someone of my standard was able to enjoy.
We stayed in one of the course-side villas which worked perfectly for us. It was clean and tidy and catered for our every need.
We never felt it necessary to venture too far from the resort, however we went to a great beach on one of the days (20/25 minute drive), we watched a professional football match in Almeria (for about €20) and visited the local market in Villaricos one morning (10 min drive) – this is well worth doing even if it’s just to buy some chorizo and fresh veg for lunch!
We had breakfast at the clubhouse every morning and made use of both the crocodile club and/or the club house again for supper. The menus were good and fairly priced, and we had no complaints at all with the quality or taste of the food.
All in all we had a fun, active, yet relaxing time and hope to return in 2020.
