The Monte Rei resort is set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South. Located in the unspoiled countryside between the dramatic Serra do Caldeirão mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the landscaping has been carefully designed to ensure that the Algarvean lanscape is preserved and enhanced.
The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - opened for play in June 2007. This par 72 Championship golf course measuring 6567m from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, the golf course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout.
