If Dad likes his golf, coupled with a bit of sunshine, you need look no further than the Algarve. We recommend the 5* Hilton Vilamoura, a contemporary hotel embraced by lush gardens offering plenty of things to do. Take a stroll down the nearby Vilamoura Marina and onward to the fantastic selection of local bars, restaurants and shops for an authentic taste of Portugal. The resort also boasts a wide choice of swimming pools and it's own fully equipped fitness centre.
The appeal of teeing off in the embracing warmth of the Algarve will be more than enough to put a smile on Dad's face however. The 18 hole course offers fantastic sea views as well as a challenge that most golfers should appreciate. After winding down on the front nine, the back nine returns upwards revealing breathtaking views of the Atlantic.
If you feel he needs something other than golf to unwind, try sending your father to the Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque in Tenerife. Sat on the southern point of the largest of the Canary Islands, this sundrenched hotel is engulfed in the fascinating local landscape.
Set within the rich greenery of the resort is The Spa Bahia Del Duque, containing treatment rooms build from the cooling volcanic stone from the island. This serene spa offers unique treatments inspired by the temperate climate, the rugged landscape and even the local sea water and marine wildlife surrounding the island. The spa uses indigenous materials from Tenerife including lava stone, woven grasses and natural wood to stimulate your senses.
Our offer includes one night completely free in a 7 night stay for £815pp.
For a more all-round treat, take him on a trip to Nice, France and the 4* Splendid Hotel which serves up a treat for everyone. Superbly situated in the heart of Nice, you'll find yourself only a short walk away from most of the top attractions in the city, including a whole host of spectacular restaurants. You may not want to venture too far anyway, with the pull of the hotel's rooftop pool and whirlpool bath providing a taste of the high life.
If you'd rather have the sand between your toes, take advantage of the hotel's discounts on local private beaches kept in superb condition. Stroll along for a fantastic day by the seaside before closing out the day with a trip to the spectacular casino for a little flutter!
Stay for five nights and pay for 4 staying in Nice for £179pp.
Any of these fantastic holidays will give your Dad something to look forward too after Father's Day and could earn you an extra birthday present next time!!
