We have been coming for year's and have always loved the Penina, getting a little tired now with flaking paint every where. Just needs touching up. But we love it just the same.

History, charm and something special.
Whilst slightly dated the hotel and staff have a unique and very special charm. You can sense the unique history and how it was the place for the jet set in the late 60s'. Have returned many times for exactly that reason. Also the best hotel pool I have experienced and magnificent grounds.

Beautiful hotel
It was a beautiful hotel, set on acres of land, surrounded by a beautiful golf resort

8/10 Very good

Lovely hotel for golf relaxation and dinner. The two golf courses are superb, the hotel has a lovely calming and relaxing feel but is dated and lacks a bit of style. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The main restaurant dinner is a la carte and the food is of a very high standard. Buffet breakfast has lots of choice of hot and cold food, nespresso coffee machines in rooms and breakfast buffet. Fantastic location and grounds. Only a short taxi ride into town or a hotel courtesy bus to the beach. Highly recommend 😀
