Hello and welcome to my first attempt at a 'blog'!
I apologise in advance for my writing skills, but I was eager to get the ball rolling and get the blog up and running. This website was started over a year ago, but various work and other life commitments stalled its development. The time seems to be the right one now, with all the exciting happenings recently on the Hacienda del Alamo resort. Its so great to see the resort getting closer to achieving its true potential.
Firstly, I want to thank all they people who supplied me with amazing photos, mine mostly consist of questionable selfies and out of focus group shots! Simon Parks, Terence Coetzee, Angus McLanders, Stewart Smart, Vicki Hamilton, Alana Jones and Ivan Hughes.
I am a relative newcomer to the resort, having purchased here three years ago, I can honestly say it was one of the best lifestyle decisions I have ever made. Rewind back to a weekend in rainy Cork in November 2016. I was contemplating purchasing a property in my home town, having this romantic idea that I might someday retire back "home". My sister, who is as much of a sun worshipper as I am, pointed out to me that I will never move 'back home", that I hated the cold and the rain and why not buy a house in the sun!
I had been to the Hacienda once before and loved the elegance and at the same time the informality of the resort. I am not a golfer, but I was really blown away with the clubhouse with its amazing views.
In the three years that I have been coming here on a regular basis, I have enjoyed and shared so many great times with friends I have invited and the friends I have made here. The Friends and family I have shared the resort with have all loved it.
As I sit here in UK on a cold, wet February day, I am reminded of how lucky I am to have my "place in the Sun" and I look forward to many more happy memories.
I hope you enjoy visiting the website and I hope you will consider submitting your own blog.
