Best for… a family holiday

To say this huge, seaside resort is fun-packed doesn’t do it justice: from pirate ships to playgrounds, paddle courts to pristine pools, there’s an activity on offer for every day of your holiday. And that’s not even including the short stroll to the beautiful village of Alvor and its beaches and golf courses. The resort’s huge gardens and sports grounds make it the perfect place for an active family holiday – but if that sounds like too much work, its huge spa is the equal of any of its tennis courts.

Pick a pool, any pool...

Best for… staying active

Climb into paradise at this huge resort – or, at least top the top of it’s on-site climbing wall. It's one of the largest all-inclusive resorts in the Algarve, and its every pool, playing field and playground was designed with the perfect family holiday in mind. The size of 12 football pitches, it's equipped with its own concert hall, restaurants, bars and spa, as well as multiple pools, including one for people with limited mobility. The beach is a short walk away, and most likely the only time you’ll want to leave.
