Between Isla Cristina and the marshlands of the Piedras river in Spain’s province of Huelva, is the stunning Islantilla Golf Resort. The location makes the perfect base for a brilliant holiday to relax on Huelva’s beaches or play the many excellent golf courses that the Costa de la Luz has to offer. The resort is very accessible being almost exactly 60 minutes from Faro airport in Portugal – don’t forget to add on one hour as you cross the boarder into Spain!
Opposite the clubhouse to the 27 hole golf course on-site, is the 4* Islantilla golf hotel. Luxury accommodation consists of 204 rooms and suites that are designed to ensure a relaxing stay. Choose from well equipped standard or Superior rooms or treat yourself to one of the spacious Junior suites. All room types have private outdoor terraces to enjoy the far reaching views and spectacular sunsets after a wonderful day of golf.
The resort has superb leisure facilities that includes a spa equipped with heated indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, sauna, solarium, Turkish bath and jacuzzi. A range of massages and other treatments are available at the Wellness Centre, with the added bonus of a Beauty Salon and Hair Salon.
The Beach Club at the resort is open during the summer season. Surrounded by palm trees, the club has swimming pools, bar, restaurant, solarium, sun beds and live music. The GVine bar serves champagnes, cocktails and refreshing gin and tonics, to name a few. No walking or driving is needed to visit this modern beach club as the resort train covers the 800 metres that separate the beach from the hotel every 30 minutes – great fun whatever your age!
27 holes of golf are on-site posing a challenge for golfers of all abilities. The three loops of nine holes, many with excellent sea views, make up the Blue, Green and Yellow courses. Characterised by different features, each course offers real variety each time they are played. If you fancy golf off-site then consider playing the North and South courses at the nearby El Rompido Golf Club or a round at Isla Canela. Both these golf clubs are less than 30 minutes’ drive away from Islantilla Golf Resort and are well worth a visit.
Only a short stroll away from the resort are the traditional tapas bars and restaurants of the commercial center of Islantilla. However, the resort offers daily half board with breakfast and buffet dinner (drinks not included) at Restaurant Las Carabelas as part of the TLC golf packages. It’s no wonder that Islantilla Golf Resort remains a firm favourite with small or large golf groups within The Ladies Collection!
