Reasons Why Golf Players Choose Mar Vimeiro Hotel In Portugal

If you are looking for a hotel to stay in during your next golf trip to Portugal, you'd be wise to follow in the footsteps of many golfers who stayed at the Mar Vimero hotel. To help you pull the trigger and book, here are a few reasons to consider the Mar Vimerio:

Location, Location, Location

The hotel is situated less than 2 miles (3km) from Porto Novo Beach and a one-hour drive from Lisbon, making it ideally situated between the city life and the coast. If Porto Novo beach is not to your liking, Santa Cruz beach is just a 30 minute drive away and if you've had enough of sand, Lourinha Museum is nearby for you to get your history fix. You can find history even closer with the Batalha Do Vimeiro Monument within 3 miles of the hotel.

Past visitors to the hotel say it is a great place to unplug and refresh. The Golf Mar was built in a region famous for its hot springs and in which agriculture and vineyards dominate the local economy. If golf is not your thing and you broaden your horizons, there are bars, museusm and surf schools nearby.

Family And Facilities

The 252-room, 3-star hotel is popular with both business and leisure travelers. It boasts 2 outdoor pools, a full-service spa, and free breakfast. Test your game on the tennis courts or golf course. Failing that, visit the equestrian center, swim at the pool and enjoy yourself at the various spa facilities. You can also strut your stuff in the on-site nightclub.

Depending on your needs, you can book the family package (with children's activities) or the romantic package, complete with mountain view, sea view and balcony.

Golf In The Area

Get some rounds in at the nine-hole Vimeiro golf course nearby. The Course is about 60km from Lisbon, and it's only a 50m walk from the beach. While only 9-holes, the course has breathtaking views of the sea.


Free breakfast (from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM) is included in the price. This hotel is home to a buffet restaurant and a bar/lounge. You can get a quick energy boost at the coffee shop/café.

Rooms & Hotel Features

All 252 rooms have balconies, safes for valuables and phones. All TVs have satellite channels and you can connect to the free WiFi any time. You can enjoy free parking and an area shuttle bus for a fee. You'll find helpful, multilingual staff at the front desk 24/7 to help you with everything from dry cleaning/laundry, tickets, and luggage storage.


I wanted to find a good adviser on golf trips but find this indeed helpful place where you can both boost your skills and pick the most picturesque golf spot.
