Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Boavista Golf Resort

Our 2 luxury holiday apartments offer some of the most delightful golf views available at the Boavista Golf & Spa Resort. The Firstgreen apartment has South-facing frontline golf views over the 1st green, 17th hole and lakes. The Lakeview apartment has unrivalled panoramic golf views over the 14th green, 15/16th fairways, lakes & tranquil pool...a golfer's paradise.

This is a superb resort catering for both golfers and non-golfers alike. Relax or be as active as you wish. Take a morning stroll along a one of the many award winning golden sandy beaches nearby, then challenge one of the Algarve's best golf courses - right on your doorstep. Maybe spend a lazy afternoon napping next to the tranquil pool, or pampering yourself at the resorts spa/health club (our guests get FREE entry & 10% off treatments), totally relaxed and stress free. In the evening explore the narrow cobbled streets of bustling Lagos - lined with white washed architecture and family friendly restaurants serving traditional Portuguese dishes. Or simply unwind on the balcony as nature provides an amazing display of sunsets over the fairways.

There is an unrivalled range of leisure and sporting opportunities to suit all ages and tastes.

Here are a few ideas...Take a day out to the Slide & Splash water park, Zoomarine or the International Sand Sculpture Festival, great entertainment for all the family. There is Karting at the Algarve Motor Park, horse riding, mountain biking adventures, winery tours and shopping centres for those needing retail therapy. From the marina you can book day trips such as dolphin safaris, it's also definitely worth taking a small boat trip to visit the 'grottos' and coves around Lagos. The mountain countryside town of Monchique is approximately a forty minute drive inland where you can experience a contrast to the coastal areas. At Foia the Algarve's highest point you can view the entire coastline on a clear day. Heading west the picturesque fishing villages of Salema and Burgau are a 15 minute drive, both are very quaint with lovely beaches where fishermen still launch their colourful boats from and tend to their nets. Sagres & the most southwesterly point in continental Europe Cape St Vincent is around a forty minute drive.

Beautiful apartment, fantastic location

  • 5 out of 5
We've just returned from Firstgreen where we had a brilliant holiday. The apartment and resort exceeded my expectations and they were already high. The property and resort were perfectly maintained and the facilities had everything we needed. We loved the indoor pool and gym and all the boys thought the golf at Boavista and other nearby courses was fantastic. The non golfers even made use of the driving range.

The food and service in the clubhouse were a really high standard, we had dinner twice which was excellent and reasonably priced. The outdoor patio overlooking the 18th green is also a lovely place to sit over a coffee.

We did have a car and made use of it most days by driving 5 minutes to Luz which is a gorgeous place where you can watch the most stunning sunsets. This has a lovely beach but we alse found the beaches of Salema and Burgau to be scenic and quiet too.

I really can't praise the apartment and resort highly enough and Phil was really helpful and patient even when I changed and extended my booking. Thanks for a great holiday.

An excellent holiday apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We found the First Green apartment to be a spacious and comfortable .It was very clean and well presented on our arrival.The apartment has all the mod cons you could wish for.The main balcony is south facing and overlooks the 17th fairway and gets plenty of afternoon sun.

We enjoyed the Boavista resort. The golf course itself was beautifully maintained and would recommend it to any golfer, regardless of their ability.The facilities at the clubhouse are excellent and the Spa is a very relaxing environment.It has superb views over Lagos Bay. The resort is on the outskirts of Lagos and the centre is not within walking distance,but the taxi service is reliable and relatively cheap.

We would certainly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a relaxing location with excellent facilities who do not mind being outside the town centre.

Boavista Golf Resort

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent two bed apartment overlooking 17th hole on Boavista Golf Resort.
The resort is an easy 50 - 60 minute drive from Faro Airport. Apartment is in excellent condition and has a fully fitted kitchen and all the appliances required for a stress free holiday. Local beaches and shops are all within easy reach whether walking or driving. On site amenities include heated outdoor and indoor pools as well as a sauna,steam room and well equipped gym. Golf course is in excellent condition and well worth playing although it is a bit on the pricey side at 60-90 Euros a round. On site restaurant serves excellent food at very reasonable prices. Resort is maintained to a very high standard and staff are all very friendly.
Would have no hesitation recommending apartment and resort to family and friends.

Firstgreen Apartmemt

  • 5 out of 5
Returning once again to this excellent apartment we were not disappointed by the standard of cleanliness and range of excellent facilities that it offers. The kitchen provides all you would need for a prolonged stay. Making breakfast in the morning watching golfers pitch into the firstgreen and attempt their putts is a wonderful way to start the day. After a day on the course ourselves we delight in returning to the apartment to watch the golfers attempt the 17 hole. As we sit on the balcony it is so easy to give advice to each golfer we see - not that they can hear us!
Myself and golfing colleagues have returned to this apratment over many years. We cannot recommend it highly enough. It is outstanding in every respect.

Owner's Response: Thanks Clive, both I, and many of our guests do exactly the same. The 17th is a tricky hole and many balls are lost in the lake. Thanks again and hope to see you next year.

First Green apartment was all as described and more. Excellent location and equiped to a very high standard. Everything very clean and the Careways staff friendly and welcoming. Excellent details provided by Phil and lots of information on what to do/see and where to eat. The clubhouse restaurant provided great food with very friendly staff. We would highly recomment this apartment to others and it will be our first choice on a return to Portugal.

Thank you Phil and family.

Lovely Lakeview apartment

  • 5 out of 5
My Family & I stayed at the Lakeview apartment. The apartment had 3 T.V's which in the evening was perfect for the 14yr old who liked to watch a movie & the 19yr old who loved Sky sports. It was a lovely apartment everthing was thought about down to a screwdriver set which came in handy for a loose sunglasses arm. There were also some basic kitchen towel/toilet roll, water already there and replaced on our departure. The facilities where great, complementary use of the gym, indoor pool & a discount at the club house for lunch went down a treat with the family. Phil is extremely helpful and quick to respond to queries. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a home from home. Portugal is child friendly and there are some great places to visit & eat. Would recommend the Adega in Lagos 8 mins drive from Boavista & for seafood/fish lovers VAI A Remos
try the toast & garlic dip (splendid) 5 mins drive. For time out/watching the world go by visit Meia Praia it's a long beach 4.5 Km, You can walk to your hearts content. I know my husband and I have done it twice. Here you'll find The Bahia Bar for drinks and live bands. It has got to be once one of the best places for a family to lay back and enjoy themselves ideal for the young and old. Enjoy....

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, we are please to hear everything was perfect with the (Firstgreen) apartment and location. Meia Praia is great for a long stroll, all the way to Alvor estuary, and both Bahia and Lindas bar are good locations for a meal or drink as the sun sets.

Lagos - a bustling town with a unique charm.

The Western Algarve is a land of unspoilt natural beauty with some of the best golden sandy beaches in Europe, nestling in rocky coves. It's a haven for those in search of tranquility or the chance to experience the 'real' Portugal in quaint towns and picturesque fishing villages.

Just a 5 minute drive away from Boavista is the historic fishing town of Lagos, arguably the most attractive town in the Algarve. Explore the narrow cobbled streets of Lagos, that open onto tiled plazas with open-air restaurants and pavement cafes. Maybe take a leisurely stroll around the bustling marina where you can browse the yachts or simply sit and watch the world go by.

Several blue flag beaches are just a few minutes away, including the picturesque beach resort of Praia da Luz, Porto de Mos & the truly spectacular 6km Meia Praia beach - one of the longest and most spectacular beaches in the Algarve. The Algarve coastline is often compared to Cornwall - but with over 300 days of sunshine a year.

The journey from Faro airport takes about 50 to 60 minutes along the A22 motorway - a simple journey. We can recommend a local hire car company who we have used for 6 years or an airport transfer.

The nearest supermarket is 2 minutes away by car. There is variety of supermarkets in Lagos and a daily fish, fruit and veg market with lots of local produce on offer.

Taxis cost around 7 euros into Lagos or Luz, the local bus also passes the resort.
