Barceló Montecastillo Golf 5*
The Barceló Montecastillo Golf & Sport Resort ***** is a modern and elegant hotel that guarantees stays of luxury, exclusivity and sports in Jerez.
THE HOTEL MONTECASTILLO GOLF
The hotel is located on the outskirts of Jerez, next to the racetrack, surrounded by a fantastic natural environment and a 19th-century castle. The resort has a good location just 10 minutes from Jerez Airport and 30 minutes from the region’s main beaches.
Jerez de la Frontera, a city known worldwide for the quality and variety of its wines, is just 8 minutes away by car. We can also mention the proximity to historic and emblematic cities such as Seville and Cadiz, which can each be reached in fifteen or thirty minutes. The Natural Park of the Sierra de Grazalema and the Route of the White Villages is also a great option for nature lovers as they are only an hour away from the hotel.
If you prefer to rest and relax in the hotel, Montecastillo offers its guests a wide range of facilities, including swimming pools, spa and sports such as golf.
It is an 18 hole, par 72 golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. It was the venue for the Volvo Masters 5 consecutive years and for 3 years of the Peugeot Tour. The golf course is located in an environment of 160 hectares, surrounded by native flora and fauna. If you stay at the Barceló Montecastillo Golf 5 *, you will receive special conditions when booking green fees.
The handicap is medium high, much appreciated for experienced players and at the same time a challenge for beginners. There are interesting courses and greens at different heights, with different obstacles to overcome.
The golf course has a large practice area: driving range, putting green and chipping green and an exclusive golf academy offering classes for groups and individuals. In this area, which will be available in autumn 2018, an extension of 5,000 m² is planned.
The new golf shop will delight all golf lovers, where you can find a wide range of products. We have top branches, complements and accessories as well as the purchase and rental of rackets and strollers.
The hotel or resort has two football fields of international standard size. The construction of these fields was carried out with the intention to host football teams of the higher leagues during the rest or preparation phases.
The fields were designed under the advice of Manchester United and the English Football Association. Both fields have the approval of FIFA.
OTHER SPORTS ACTIVITIES
In addition to football and golf courses, Hotel Barceló Montecastillo also offers a tennis court, a rugby field and a gym. Since the hotel is located in a beautiful environment, it is also suitable for hiking. Its strategic location allows for water sports activities both on the beaches of the coast and in the nearby lakes.
Montecastillo is characterized by the attention to detail and is also reflected in the kitchen. At El Lagar Restaurant you can enjoy a varied buffet and carefully selected dishes on the menu, where Jerez wine is an undeniable protagonist. As a member of the Jerez wine and brandy tour, Montecastillo prepares dishes in a very special way.
In breakfast Montecastillo is one of the pioneers. It has the services of a registered nutritionist who is currently preparing smoothies with fruits, vegetables and superfoods. It is available several days a week.
