Beautiful setting with plenty of palm trees around the course and the Atlas Mountains in the background. The course can be relatively difficult to play well given its length and layout, but it is a delightful golf experience regardless of handicap with new challenges all the time. Lovely club house with a really good restaurant.

Loathe Football

hate football (soccer)Had enough of the clichés ?, the hype? or just “don’t get it”?. Maybe you want to leave the other half glued to the box and get away from it all. A girls weekend perhaps?, an activity weekend with the kids ?

We recommend :

  • Get away from it all in Wales. Check for great deals at the Country House Hotel “Coed-y-Mwstwr” – Accessible luxury, this hillside hideaway near Bridged has a gym and sauna and gets great reviews for the quality of it’s service and food.

Love Football

love football (soccer)If you love football so much you want to immerse yourself in the beautiful game, concentrate on the games and get away from distractions at home, why not check into a city hotel for the weekend ? Get a room with a nice big TV or close to some great pubs to soak up the World Cup atmousphere.

We recommend :

  • Ten minutes from Old Trafford and Sports City, the Willow Bank in Wilmslow Road, Manchester is a friendly hotel offering great value for money with TV and wi-fi, they even have Sky Sports on the box and games consoles available for anyone that wants to play Fifa soccer while there aren’t matches on TV. Check for prices that won’t break the bank and no hidden fees.
