A stand-out option for luxury family holidays on the Algarve, the chic Martinhal Sagres Beach Hotel & Resort is highly rated for its kids’ clubs, family activities and kids' sporting academies, which embrace surfing, windsurfing, swimming, tennis and football. Ages 10 and up can join in a great program of supervised activities including dolphin-watching, diving, biking and mocktail making.
There's also a luscious spa with treatments for all ages, from babies to grandparents, and several eateries including the surf-themed M Bar with a 1970s camper van booth, a gelateria, a kids' area with iPads and games and an outdoor play area. Alternatively, the beachfront seafood restaurant has a terrace from which you can watch the kids play on the trampoline or in the sandpit as you relax over a glass of wine.
Service is top-notch and the well-kitted-out houses and villas with their high-spec kitchens make this great for those who like some flexibility. They're also ideal for large families or for holidays with grandparents (who often get discounts). Whether you're travelling with a baby or toddler or are looking for an active holiday in Portugal with teens, Martinhal Sagres ticks all the boxes.
