Fairplay Golf & Spa Resort is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain, in a conservation area between Gibraltar and Cadiz. The hotel is about 80 minute’s transfer from Malaga airport, 45 minute’s from Gibraltar. The hotel has a classic parkland course on resort called Benalup par 73, laid out over rolling hills, with beautiful sweeping panaormas of mountains just north of the resort.
The hotel package is based on a minimum inclusion of half board, with an optional supplement for all inclusive which we would highly recommend.
The Hotel is reopening on 1 September 2017 after 3 years of closure, when the original owners went into liquidation. The new set up is excellent with a new owner and new financing, with lots of reinvestment which started in 2016, especially in the golf courses which never really was as good as the hotel in the days when the Fairplay was at its best. Now, the course is being re-born to be much more of a challenge, the worst holes have been reshaped a lot to improve the overall layout considerably. The restaurants at Fairplay are going to be impressive, with the main buffet in the main building, the new a la carte venue, the poolside grill venue for the afternoons, which was always extremely popular and there is also a small a la carte venue in the golf clubhouse.
The rooms at the Fairplay have also been renovated dramatically, with great style and attention to detail. We would highly recommend upgrading to one bedroom deluxe suites or royal suites, although the basic rooms called superior or deluxe are very good also!
The hotel is designed to be originally a suites hotel, so there more suites than standard sized bedrooms, the design is in the form of a white wash pueblo village, with lots of terraced areas, hidden gardens and set on high land overlooking the golf course below. The views from the main building are spectacular.
One of the highlights of the hotel is indeed the spa which is stunning, with the biggest hydrotherapy pool in Spain, superb for the ultimate relaxation post golf! On our 7 night packages the inclusion is 2 entries per person to the Spa.
