The Martinhal Sagres Beach Family Resort is a 5-star hotel situated in a protected natural park, whilst overlooking the sandy Martinhal Beach.

Kids will feel more than welcome here, thanks to the wide range of activities on offer. The Martinhal Sagres features Kids’ Clubs suited to all ages as well as The Blue Room, an independent games room with the latest video games and other activities such as pool tables that the whole family can enjoy.
This 4-star hotel truly has something for everybody! While the Aquashow Park Hotel is home to two large outdoor pools, it’s the waterpark which steals the show. The whole family can enjoy a range of rollercoasters, water slides, splash parks and lazy rivers.
There is also a Kids’ Club here which will keep the youngsters occupied, whilst the parents can take full advantage of the spa facilities. So, put your feet up after an active day at the waterpark with a treatment or two. Make the most of the evening entertainment as you sing your heart out on karaoke night or leave it to the professionals on live music nights. Thanks to the Aquashow Park Hotel’s location, Quarteira Beach is just a five-minute drive away, so a day at the beach is never too far away.
The 5-star Vidamar Resort Algarve is a great pick when holidaying with the family in the Algarve.

Situated in the well-known town of Albufeira and near Fisherman’s Beach is the 4-star Vila Gale Cerro Alagoa.

On the other hand, there is also a games room, so children will surely be kept entertained during their holiday.
The 3-star Alfagar I Village is an ideal budget-friendly choice for families.
