Luxuriously nestled in the beautiful Sagres area of Portugal’s unspoilt western Algarve coast, the luxury, child friendly Martinhal is a sanctuary for new parents, young families, families with older children or a fabulous place for a mulit-generational holiday. There is something here to satisfy everyone. Stylish, contemporary architecture complement the organic personality of the resort, which has been shaped to blend effortlessly into the indigenous landscape.

Beach Rooms (in the Hotel Martinhal) 
Maximum occupancy: 2 persons + one infant under two sleeping in a cot (there is no separate sleeping area for the baby).

Arranged in clusters of four close to the beach, the Beach Rooms are just a short walk from the main building. Positioned to take full advantage of an outstanding coastal panorama, these rooms open onto private balconies or terraces where glorious ocean views and sunsets can be fully appreciated.

Beach Suites (in the Hotel Martinhal)
Maximum occupancy: 2 persons + one infant under two sleeping in a cot.

Positioned overlooking the ocean, the Beach Suites incorporate loft-style double height living spaces, with the open-plan bedroom situated on the mezzanine level. Outside, a private veranda has been carefully orientated to take advantage of the setting sun. Floor space is deceptively generous, and the enormous floor-to-ceiling bay windows greatly enhance the sense of proportion. A private ground floor terrace (fitted out with two chairs and two sunbeds) extends onto a modest lawn. The Beach Suites can also interconnect with the adjacent Beach Room, which is perfect for families – so for a family of 2 adults and more than two children, this would be a good combination.

Their position affords impressive views across the resort, the Sagres peninsula and the Natural Park. Cosmopolitan in character yet maintaining an important sense of tradition, the townhouses have been designed upside down: bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the ground floor while a large open plan lounge and state-of-the-art kitchen occupy the second level. Furnishings are stylish but functional. All townhouses have central heating, air-conditioning, satellite TV and a DVD player. 

Guests who book the Vilas Mimosa through Luxury and Little Ones will have full access to all the resort facilities.

To help ease the packing load the shop on site (Mercado) at Martinhal sells a choice of nappies/diapers, baby wipes, creams as well as high quality formula milk and food items. It also stocks a variety of sun-protection creams for adults and children.
