This large glass-fronted resort has a setting on Alvor’s peaceful outskirts. It’s surrounded by manicured lawns and just a short walk from the nearest shops, bars and restaurants. The beach is a little over 20 minutes’ walk away, but the hotel lays on a handy shuttle bus several times a day that’ll whisk you to and from.
The swimming pools steal the show here. There's a huge lake-sized number, fringed by loungers and thatched parasols. Little ones have a neighbouring paddling pool all to themselves, complete with an in-water play area. You’ll find one more pool inside the spa, which is all geared up for indulging body treatments, and comes with a sauna and a Turkish bath. Take some time out here to recharge while smaller guests are entertained at the hotel-run kids’ club.
When it comes to dining, this resort specialises in international buffet spreads. And there are two restaurants to choose from, so things never get samey. Three bars take care of cold drinks – there’s a stylish lobby variety, a lively sports bar with a big screen, and another right on the poolside.
The Five Senses Spa
A trip here will have you sinking into peaceful tranquillity. There’s a steam room and sauna. Massage treatments are available, and there’s even bubbling hammam baths too.
Impressive pool collection
There are two outdoor pools here. One is exceptionally large, lined with sunbeds and parasols. And the other is for the little ones. Indoors, there’s a heated pool for adults only with its own whirlpool.
Super fun kids’ club
There’s a lot to get involved in here for children between the ages of 4-12. Whether its treasure hunts, face painting or creative drawing, you won’t run the risk of your young ones being bored.
