Barcelo Montecastillo Golf Resort, Cadiz, Spain
Montecastillo is one of Spain's best golf resorts and owned by Barcelo Hotels, who have already invested heavily in bringing the golf course back to its very best condition, with new bunkering which is great news, as this really is a Jack Nicklaus masterpiece. The hotel lies to the right hand side of the spectacular cliff top 18th hole, where a slice will put you out of bounds and into the hotel gardens!
The course has hosted the Volvo Masters 3 times and is in close proximity to the lovely historic town of Jerez, which is famous for its wine and sherry cellars. The golf clubhouse is set in an old Castillo, with a superb spa treatment centre and a great indoor swimming pool. These parts of the hotel have also seen major reinvestment in 2013 alongside a refreshing renovation to many of the hotel bedrooms and public areas.
Next to the Hotel is the magnificent Castle which was constructed in 1901 where you will find the Pro-Shop, caddie master and the clubhouse bar. The spacious entrance hall of the Hotel offers an air of grandeur with stunning views across the golf course. All bedrooms are decorated in classical Andalucian style and many look out over the course. The El Lagar restaurant offers the finest a la carte Mediterranean cuisine and top service levels, the Montecastillo is a boutique hotel and qualifies well as an elegant golf resort.
