"Hi Ron We have just had a wonderful trip to the Jupiter Hotel in Praia da Rocha - everything went off smoothly, even the weather cooperated with no rain all week which was good. No complaints at all and your tour manager Sue looked after us all magnificently, dealt with everything calmly and with great humour - tracked down missing bowls, retrieved forgotten bags and all in all was a great hit with everyone. I have already been asked if I will do another tour next year -"

Alcazar Hotel - The Algarve - March 2023

Cynthia May

"This is our 14th Bowls tour with Bowling Abroad we had a great week from start to finish, The fact that we had booked with Ron Scott for so long speaks for itself, also this year we had the pleasure of Ron himself looking after us which is very rare as he is always so busy, we would not even consider another company as long as there is BOWLING ABROAD already looking at 2024"

Jupiter Hotel - The Algarve - 15th March 2023

Roger Woolland

"May I thank you so much, Ron Scott, for our wonderful bowling holiday in Portugal in March this year, our party of 16 bowlers had a fabulous time on the tour and so enjoyed playing against the club venues we visited where we were made very welcome, The hotel Jupiter that we stayed in was excellent the food could not have been better with a large selection for all taste especially my wife who has many allergies. our tour manager Lone was great and very helpful we will be back in 2024"

Jupiter Hotel - The Algarve - 29th March 2023

Ian Dixon

"This was the second visit I had organised with Bowling Abroad, although they have been many times before with them, this one was even better than the first. The hotel accommodation, Staff & Amenities were excellent, the food was average because it was warm and limited desserts, our tour manager Geoff was excellent as well, very clear and organised and well-liked by the group joined in with us in the evenings, we will return in 2025"


Karen Kennedy

"Henfield Bowling Club had the most amazing bowls tour to Athena Beach hotel, Geoff our tour manager from Bowling Abroad was fantastic, helpful, fun, informative from the moment he met us at the airport to the time we waved goodbye at Gatwick (he was going back to Portugal) can't wait to do it all again in 2024☺️"

Athena Beach Hotel - Cyprus - 14th March 2023

"We have had a wonderful tour to Cyprus and Geoff our tour manager looked after us very well. Unfortunately, the weather let us down for ONE match but we managed an indoor practice session for those who wanted to play. The hotel is excellent."

Ampalius Hotel - The Algarve - 2nd October 2022

Julie Tullett

"Wow, Wow, Wow Our third tour abroad and they just keep getting better! From the moment we arrived in Faro, Ron and Sam were there to greet us, took us to the hotel and made sure everyone was settled and happy. Steve our Tour Rep for the week arrived later that evening and from then on, the week just got better and better. The hotel rooms and the facilities were excellent, and the location superb, right on the beach front, our best yet. We played four bowls matches during the week, which were all organised for us and couldn’t have asked for more. The clubs and its members were so welcoming, and we have made some lovely friends and contacts for bowling back in the UK next year. All I can say is that a week on, everyone is still talking about what a fantastic time they all had this year, and can they book again for 2023 – a huge thank you to Ron, Sam, Steve and the administration team for Bowling Abroad, you really do provide a 1st Class service which is second to none – See you in 2023!"

Ampalius Hotel - The Algarve - 1st October 2022

Lyn Roberts

"2022 was my first time as a group leader but it was the seventh time at the Ampalius Hotel. As always we had a really great time enjoyed by all. As a new leader, I was guided and helped by Ron Scott from the beginning, nothing was too much trouble with even more help on arrival! With very little notice he quickly rearranged a match for us when our opposition couldn't play. He always wants the best for the group and is full of suggestions to help the tour. One suggestion this year was dinner in a restaurant after a match at Alvor. This was a great success and hopefully will be repeated in 2023. Thank you, Ron and your team."

Ampalius Hotel - The Algarve - 1st October 2022

Jenny Smith

"This was Woodcroft Bowls Club's first tour with Bowling Abroad. We couldn’t have gone with a better company. From the moment we stepped off the plane we were pleasantly greeted by Lone our Bowls Tour Manager for the week. She was great and we enjoyed her company. We all enjoyed the games at Alvor, Valverde and Pedras. The clubs were great and had fabulous hospitality. Coaches for pick ups etc were all on time and ready and waiting when we left. All we can say is see you next year. Jenny Smith Captain"

Ampalius Hotel - The Algarve - 11th October 2022

Brenda Cox

"Just to say how much we all enjoyed our stay at the Ampalius Hotel in Vilamoura on October 11th 2022. As a tour organiser, I have organised six other bowling tours abroad in the past and this is the first with Bowling Abroad - and it certainly won't be the last! We are already planning for 2023!! The attention to detail, all transfers were on time, and personal service from Lone our tour manager was outstanding. Our meal on the last night - courtesy of Ron Scott MD of Bowling Abroad - was fantastic and one we will always remember. The bowling clubs we visited were extremely friendly and all our games were enjoyable. So thanks again to Ron and his fantastic team for a memorable time."

Don Jose Beach Hotel - The Algarve - 1st October 2022

Lyn Kirby

"We have just returned from a two-club joint tour of the Algarve in Portugal, organises by the Bowling Abroad company led by Ron Scott. The entire trip was organised by Bowling Abroad. Two separate clubs meeting for the first time at a holiday hotel and then playing four games in a week, with a couple of days off to enjoy the sunshine. At the start, there was a hitch when one of the flights was cancelled at the last minute, but our dedicated organiser, Ron Scott simply took that in his stride and adjusted the tour to suit the new flight. our tour manager for the week Geoff was brilliant from start to finish, ensuring that the games were fully attended by bringing in extra players and playing, himself, if that was necessary, to ensure the games went smoothly. Four games were organised, game 1 was the two clubs against each other because of the delayed flight. The other 3 games were against Pedras, Valverde, and Alvor. None of the clubs could have been more welcoming. They were great and provided good and friendly games. The after-game drinks and chats were better than excellent. The transport was also laid on by Bowling Abroad After the last game, the touring sides were taken out to a local Portuguese restaurant for a slap-up meal (including drinks). We were joined by Ron Scott himself for the evening. Ron was most interested in how the week went and how the experience could have been improved. After the meal, there was a great prize-giving speech by Geoff, followed by the Horsell, and Banister Park organisers. The whole evening was a great wind down to the tour. On behalf of the Banister Park team, I would like to say a great big thank you to Ron and his team at Bowling Abroad. The entire experience was superb. We started to organise the next tour as soon as we returned and Ron is in the process of sorting it all out for us"

Don Jose Beach Hotel - The Algarve - 2nd October 2022

Pam Lawrence

"We cannot thank Ron and the Bowling Abroad team enough. Having our flight cancelled only 4 hours before we were due to travel could have been difficult but within 20 minutes Ron had us booked on the first flight out the following day. This meant a re-jig to our schedule but by the time we arrived everything had been sorted so we could enjoy our 4 matches as promised. Our group leader Geoff was an amazing host, nothing was too much trouble. The Hotel Dom Jose in Quarteira was a perfect place to stay, with sea views excellent food and atmosphere and very attentive staff. We enjoyed a fabulous presentation night at the local La Cabane restaurant as a perfect end to our tour. We will definitely be booking again in future years. Thanks to all at Bowling Abroad for another great tour"

Jupiter Hotel -The Algarve - 1st March 2022

Cynthia May (Group leader)

"'After having had to rearrange this tour twice since March 2020, it was a great pleasure to the Cornish Travellers to land at Faro airport. Once again we stayed at the Jupiter hotel in Portimao, an excellent location right by the beach, and always a great place to be based. During the week we played 4 games of bowls, all at very welcoming clubs, where we acquitted ourselves well, enjoying the bowls and the social side of the game. This was our eleventh tour with Bowling Abroad, and the organisation was as we have come to expect - first class. A big 'thank you' to our Bowling Abroad Tour manager Geoff and to Lone who assisted and deputised for him as required, we hope to see you both again at some time in the future. An long awaited bowls tour, which was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. Now to enjoy the memories, browse the lovely new brochure and decide on the destination for next year!' Many thanks from the Cornish Travellers Cynthia May (Group Organiser)"


Keith Sparkes (Tour Organiser)

"Dear Ron, We had the AGM of St.Johns (Meads) Bowls Club on Friday, which was the first opportunity for all the members who came to Portugal on the 1st October 2019 to get together and give their comments. Bowling Abroad’s arrangement were without fault. From our arrival at Faro Airport where we were met by three representatives of the company until we got back to Faro on our return journey, every aspect of our trip was superbly organised. Our hotel The Ampalius was without fault the staff were so friendly and helpful. The Bowling Abroad Tour manager Geoff was outstanding and if not in our company then he was available on the phone. His arrangements with regards to our coach transport were excellent as were the coaches and drivers. The Clubs that we visited made us feel welcome and with the help of Geoff’s organisation all our players were accommodated with games. A special thanks to you Ron for organising lunches at the clubs. I would like to say a special thank you to Paul Lazenby from the office, who I was able to meet in person on our night out at the restaurant (another super time had by all) for the efficient way the administration of our holiday was dealt with, everything delivered on the day he said it would arrive. Ron thank you and your team for a truly memorable trip, and I can assure you that we are organising our next trip with Bowling Abroad. Keith Sparkes and Members of ST.Johns (Meads) Bowls Club"


Sue & Dave (Tour Organisers)

""It was our first ever tour abroad. We chose the Vila Gale Ampalius Hotel in Portugal. There were 20 bowlers and 3 non-bowlers. A few people had some reservations especially those who would not be bowling but partners were. By the 3rd day each and every one of the group were 'demanding' we return next year. It was so brilliant. Thanks to Ron & Paul - amazingly efficient organisation and responsive attention throughout. Cannot recommend highly enough. Re-booked for next March 2020!"


Jackie Thomas (Tour Organiser)

"Reflecting on our club bowls tour to the Algarve, I would just like to thank Ron and his team for putting together a first class package for our group. The main thing that I will personally bring home with me was the complete deal that Ron put together for us, leaving time to enjoy our bowls, days off, excursions, quality hotel and the very friendly, welcoming teams that we played against. Every detail was covered unlike previous tours we have been on with a different company! A big plus for us was that we were accompanied from the minute we landed by Geoff Bailey who quickly became one of our friends, he met us at the airport, accompanied us to every game and helped us out in many other ways. The visit was finished off perfectly with a presentation, party and copious amounts of alcohol all provided generously by Ron. We will be using Bowling Abroad again and are more than happy to recommend their services."


Kerry Ring (Tour Organiser)

"Dear Ron, Gilfach Goch Ladies BC are writing to let you know how your company ‘Bowling Abroad’ has made my 1st effort at organising an overseas bowling trip seem less demanding and trouble free. From my perspective I can only thank you enormously for delivering everything you promised in your brochure. I have nothing but praise for you and for Paul at Nirvana, and Steve Hibberd for being an amazing ‘Tour Manager’ His temperament was fantastic. He genuinely made everyone’s holiday and bowling experience abroad all the better for being there. Everyone was very impressed by the hotel, the transfers to and from airport, bowling venues and matches, the flights to and from Cyprus and all the documentation we required. Once again, a huge ‘Thank you’ from me and all my group for delivering a fantastic, enjoyable bowling holiday."


Julie Tullett (Tour Organiser)

"Coney Hall bowlers would just like to thank Ron, Sam and Bowling Abroad for looking after us in Paphos, Cyprus this year. Wonderfully organised staying at the Athena Beach hotel, which had great food, facilities and sunshine! Some challenging matches played at local clubs, making new friends along the way. Looking forward to Portugal with Ron and the team in 2020! Thanks again from your friends at Coney Hall Bowls Club."


Cynthia May (Tour Organiser)

"The Cornish Travellers have had 10 fabulous tours with Bowling Abroad, travelling to Spain, Portugal and Cyprus. Everything has always been well organised, hotels, transfers, excursions and bowls matches. Looking forward to tour number 11 when we revisit the Algarve in 2020 Many thanks to Ron and his team."


Edvj (Tour Organiser)

"Hello Ron, Just wanted to thank you, and also on behalf of the Bushill Park bowlers for the nice week you arranged for us in Portugal. We all had a great time and Jayne your tour manager was most helpful. Thanks again Ron all the best regards Edvj"


Frank Oliver (President & Tour Organiser)

"This was the first time the London Irish have toured abroad. Absolute superb service, wonderfully organised tour and cannot speak highly enough of the Tour Manager Paul Lazenby. Everything from the pick up at the airport when arriving, all the arranged matches and Gala Night through to our departure was expertly organised. Everyone of our party, both bowlers and non-bowlers had a very enjoyable week. We would definitely recommend the services of Ron Scott and Bowling Abroad and we look forward to our next tour."


Jill Martin (Tour Organiser)

"Dear Ron, well you nailed it again. Flights, transfers and matches all went well even though we lost most of our matches. But the wine compensated for that. This year Hampden Park Bowls Club was joined by other various clubs within East Sussex. We all had a fantastic time and the hotel was great. Food, entertainment and hotel facilities were of a high standard. We would all like to thank Geoff Bailey for being a great Tour Manager he help to ensure that the week ran smoothly and made every effort to make our holiday memorable. Well done Bowling Abroad.👍"


Chris Millard (Tour Organiser)

"This was the first time we have ever organised a trip like this, so did not know what to expect, but the efficient organisation and friendliness of all the Bowling Abroad staff we met (Ron, Sam and Paul at Nirvana) was second to none. As we were a smaller group of 12, we teamed up with the 5 lovely ladies from Kenfig Hill & Pyle Bowls club near Bridgend to make the rinks up and were also joined by Ron and Sam in some matches. All the clubs we played at made us very welcome and we were very pleased with the quality of the greens!! All in all it was a great week and we all hope to come again next year. We highly recommended Bowling Abroad"


Jan Baker (Group Leader)

"We, five Welsh ladies, have just returned from a most wonderful bowling holiday in the Algarve. Ron Scott and the lovely Sam pulled out all the stops in ensuring our holiday was a great success. We stayed at the Hotel Ampalius in Vilamoura and joined forces with another of Ron’s clients – Somersham Bowls Club. We enjoyed four matches during our week long stay and all of our host clubs were very friendly and welcoming. The grass rinks were truly superb to play on , just like velvet!! We cannot fault the hospitality shown to us by all the clubs we visited. Ron and Sam accompanied and played with us, took us shopping on our free days and escorted us to a lovely Portuguese restaurant for dinner one evening. They and the restaurant were absolutely great! Their organisation and attention to detail could not be faulted and we are already looking forward to another memorable holiday with Bowling Abroad next year."


Phil Lock (Group Leader)

"Well that's another bowls holiday over, and a great time was had by all. Now to start planning the next one. We shall of course be booking with Bowling Abroad as Ron Scott and his team always come up with the goods, in as much that nothing is too much trouble to ensure that all their clients get nothing but the best while on holiday. We were absolutely delighted with our tour rep this time, and in Sandra Heath we had a real diamond. Sandra stood in for us, and she worked her socks off in making sure we were well looked after. Thanks Ron Scott, speak to you soon. From all Moonfleet bowlers. 🌞"


Julie Tullett (Group Leader)

"Coney Hall Bowling Club, West Wickham, Kent wanted to say a huge thank you to Ron Scott, Sam and Jayne our Tour Manager for the fantastic time that we had on our first bowling trip abroad, staying at the Hotel Jupiter in Playa da Rocha, Portugal. Ron and the team were first class and had arranged everything from the moment we landed. Our coaches, lunch, additional trips and not to forget being welcomed for matches by four different bowling clubs across the Algarve. The hospitality, facilities and company was excellent and we have all made some new friends. It is fair to say that we didn’t know what to expect when we booked but as a Club we have had such a great time we are already booking again for next year! Thanks again everyone at Bowling Abroad- 1st Class!"


Maureen Jordan (Group Leader)

"Orpington Bowls Club: Had a fabulous group holiday in April with Bowling Abroad, have been a few times now and we are always very pleased with the standard of the hotel arranged and the great Bowling Abroad reps that are with us. A high standard is always given. Many thanks. Until the next one!"


Dennis Gibson (Group Leader)

"Hi Ron, the following is a report of Sunderland Bowls Club tour with BOWLING ABROAD Administration: (Nirvana Europe Ltd) this is the third tour and found the company first class everything was dealt with promptly and efficiently, particularly Paul Lazenby. 100% satisfaction. Hotel: The hotel Meridional was excellent, waiter service and good food, the staff were very helpful allowing us courtesy rooms until the time of our return flight and even provided us with a Sunday evening meal ( a big thank you to them ) Transfers: The coaches and drivers were great, and the guys were very accommodating agreeing for a small fee to take us all to Cartagena a very nice city indeed. Tour Manager: Our tour manager was Sandra who arranged an evening visit to Quesada BC for a social evening. Full Marks, she was very good and played for us in all four matches, both her welcome and farewell presentations were very good and her knowledge of the area was excellent and I would personally recommend her to any visiting groups. Overall: It was a very good week, as I said earlier this was our 3rd tour with your company Ron and we are already looking forward to the next one. A big thank you to you and all your staff. See you next year. Kind Regards Dennis"


Cynthia May (Group Leader)

"The Cornish Travellers have just returned from our 9th tour with Bowling Abroad, this year In the Algarve in Portugal, actually staying in the lovely town of Vilamoura. As always the organisation was excellent with our tour rep doing a great job in coordinating everything and ensuring that the bowling and our holiday ran smoothly. Our 4 games of bowls were all played at very friendly clubs where we were made most welcome. Thank you Bowling Abroad, looking forward to next year already."


Ian Dixon (Group Leader)

"Hi Ron As an inexperienced bowler who had never bowled abroad I was somewhat surprised when I was volunteered to lead the trip to Portugal. I need not have worried because everything went very smoothly. We were all very pleased with our hotel. We didn't come home with suntans but we were able to get out and walk and sightsee on most of our free days. Some of us made good use of the heated pool. The trip to Silves was enjoyed by all, our tour manager Steve, who looked after us well throughout our 10 day stay, put in a medal winning performance both on and off the greens. He organised good weather for our bowling days and played for us as two of our group had to withdraw shortly before we left Eastbourne. The host clubs all made us very welcome and the lunches provided were excellent. We succeeded in coming a close second in all our matches but our opponents can bowl all winter and we were rusty! I will end with a big thankyou to you Ron. Bowling Abroad obviously has lots of experience dealing with bowling groups and you made things easy for me. Ian Dixon"


Margaret Winton (Group Leader)

"Dear Ron. It was with much trepidation that I undertook to arrange a group bowling holiday with Bowling Abroad having never done anything like this previously. However, I need not have worried as you and all you staff helped all the way and made the whole event a great success for us all, folks are already asking when the next trip will be. The holiday went swimmingly [I am not referring to the storm that lashed the Mediterranean the day we arrived] the hotel exceeded expectations. the greens were top rate and the company excellent. Cherril your Tour Manager and her husband were delightful and very helpful. I will definitely book with you again should we repeat this venture. All in all every one of us were well pleased. My best wishes to you and your company. Margare"


Tony Redford (Group Leader)

"In 2012, I was a member of the 'Bowling Abroad Tour' organised St Albans & District touring party to the Algarve, based at Pedras da Rainha. Following an extremely successful tour, in 2013 I asked Ron Scott to arrange a Bowling holiday for my club. We have now enjoyed four years of tours at Dom Jose Hotel, Quarteira for two years and Pedras da Rainha for one year and last year Ampalius in Vilamoura. A fifth has tour has been arranged this year based again at the Ampalius Hotel in Vilamoura. My experience of Bowling Abroad has been one of first class service providing for our every need in producing a superb holiday for all! Tony Redford, Harpenden Bowling Club."


Carol Horgan (Group Leader)

"Topsham Bowling Club in Devon have been 'touring' with Ron in both Portugal and Spain now for many years. With Ron Scott and Bowling Abroad we have never had anything to complain about in any of our many tours abroad. Ron is a wonderful organiser and highly recommended."


Phil Lock (Group Leader)

"MOONFLEET 2017 ALGARVE BOWLS TOUR Now that we are back from our bowls holiday in Portugal, all of the Moonfleet bowlers are agreed, that the success was largely due to the outstanding efforts of Ron Scott from Bowling Abroad. Nothing was too much trouble for Ron, and ably assisted by his staff on the Algarve, they made our holiday, one to remember. Thanks Ron, here's hoping we can have another fantastic time with your company next year. PHIL LOCK"

"Hi Ron, We all arrived home safe and sound after a superb Bowling Holiday in the Algarve thanks to your brilliant organization.

"A big thank you to Ron Scott and his team - Tony and Gill Brimley for organising our bowls tour this year to Praia de Rocha. The Hotel Jupiter surprised us all in its high level of excellence, from the buffets, the rooms and most importantly the attentiveness of all its staff. The Bowling Abroad team looked after us from the minute we arrived at the airport until the minute we left. We enjoyed 3 games of bowling with 1 unfortunately cancelled due to the heavy rain but we were welcomed at their club for lunch, after spending the morning in the shopping mall! All the clubs we visited extended such a warm welcome and we look forward to returning at some point. We had a surprise visit from Sarah our rep from last year, when we visited Spain on our tour. The club enjoyed that tour so much that we requested one for this year, hence our visit to Portugal. So again many thanks to Bowling Abroad for arranging the two tours for us"

From the coach driver to the fabulous Jupiter hotel, Antonio and his staff in the restaurant, I could eat for England there, the housemaids, the reception and bar staff to all the members of the clubs at which we played they were all top notch - thanks to them all. As for you, it has been a pleasure dealing with you for the past two trips, it won’t be long before I am in touch again, starting to organise next years. Well done Ron, but to top it all the way you directed the hurricane which hit the Algarve on Saturday and Sunday keeping it away from where we played and blew the clouds away to provide sun - that’s impressive !! Regards Brian Collins and all the Dolphin group."

"Most of the ladies in the group hadn’t been on a bowling holiday abroad and I am delighted to say they were very impressed with our tour in Guadamar. They loved how well organised everything was, they loved Steve for his informative knowledge of the area and for his patience with a bunch of manic Scottish ladies. We enjoyed it so much ,that we are planning another trip in 2016 and another 8 ladies have signed up because of the rave reports."
