The Levante Course with its characteristic Nicklaus design, is an American styled course with narrow fairways, exquisitely shaped greens and is more than 6,612 metres in length with stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra de Finestrat.Because the course is not located within any urban development you can enjoy the golf in completely natural surroundings with constant views of the sea and of the mountains.
The Poniente Course: executive and par 62 is 3,858 metres in length and is located on the hill side of a Mediterranean pine forest with views over the sea and the mountains. Its design provides a great golfing experience for all
types of players independent of their handicap.Although shorter it is still exciting. It requires skill from short irons and is demanding for a player with a low handicap, although all the holes offer alternatives for medium and high handicapped players.
Played the Poniente Course on a sunny Sunday in early March. Play was smooth and we completed the round in 3h 15min. Poniente is the shorter par 62 course with mostly par 3 holes. All par 4 holes are reachable from the tee for the more experienced player. The terrain is very hilly. Therefore, a cart is a must.
Even though the course is short, not an ideal course for a beginner because of the challenging tee shots. On some holes the first shot must carry atleast 100 m.
+ Nice views + Fast greens + Fairways in great shape + Interesting layout
- Ground under repair around the greens on many holes - Unfixed pitchmarks on greens - Rather short - No back tees set up (suitable tee boxes do exist)

Played both courses in October. The short course is good fun to play with interesting short holes, but the Championship course was very disapointing. The bunkers have had no work on them for a good while leaving them looking scruffy and unplayable at times. The greens were in very poor condition. A 30 foot putt needed almost a three quarter back swing with the putter. The facilities at the complex are first rate, but they need to get the Golf courses up to a similar standard to attract people back.

Nice course and beutiful settings. Course was in good condition. We was renting clubs and got clubs that was 15 years old. I also got clubs for a women, no one said anything about that. Villaitana is a 5 star complex but the people who was working at the golfshop was not very profesionell. We asked if they could do anything on the price for the rental clubs, but they just said that they have a new management and could not do anything. They charged 20 euros for the clubs and they did not want to have any better clubs becuse the customers just dont take any care of them. Sorry Villaitana this is not how to take care of your geusts at the hotel.
