Stylish and design-oriented, Martinhal family resorts offer luxury vacation experiences that are created with family in mind.

Rising above the cliffs of Sagres, Portugal in the southernmost Algarve region is the vast and impressive Martinhal Sagres, a family resort sitting among a protected national park and beach where luxury meets nature. A stay at Martinhal means a chance to relax and unwind, while knowing that your family’s needs are taken care of.

Martinhal’s ethos is about thoughtful curation and family rejuvenation. The resort boasts five different kids’ clubs with age-appropriate activities among expertly trained staff, from 6 months to 17 years old, and babysitting if parents just need a night off. It also has lots of activities that families can do together, from renting family Coconut beds on the beach to heading to the private family cinema to exploring all five on-site pools.

Sustainability is an important part of Martinhal’s design focus, incorporating sustainable design like solar panels onto its property and offering organic produce in its restaurants, as well as fresh purees for babies. Electric car charging points are also available on site.

Families can stay in one of the hotel’s 37 hotel rooms, designed with massive floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning views on all sides, or rent one of Martinhal’s 132 villas, which are spacious 2-3 bedroom properties with their own kitchens. They can dine together at a number of on-site restaurants, cafes and grills, and can even rent water sports equipment from the beachfront Water Sports Centre to spend the day windsurfing and enjoying the waves. The on-site tennis court and pump track have bikes and tennis equipment for kids and adults to enjoy together.

While you may never want to leave the resort (and we wouldn’t blame you), just beyond Martinhal’s limits is vast national parkland, stunning beaches and adorable towns worth visiting. There’s a reason Martinhal is often called the finest luxury family resort in Europe…and you’ll have to see it for yourself to find out why.
