Water babies are in for a real treat at the Aquashow Park Hotel. It’s home to two palm-fringed pools and a huge waterpark packed with chutes, slides and a lazy river. It’s easy to get some beach time in here, too – the silky sands of the Quarteira stretch are just a 10-minute drive away, and there’s a handy shuttle bus to get you from A to B.
The hotel is well geared up for relaxation. The grounds are cloaked in shrubs and blooms, giving things a nice private feel, and there are loungers and parasols dotted all over the place. Indoors, the Aquafeeling Spa offers up soothing massages and facials, and there’s a whirlpool bath and a heated pool to unwind in, as well.
If you like things a little more fast-paced, you can hire bikes to get out and explore the countryside as a family. Little ones can burn some energy in the playground, or catch a movie in the kids-only cinema. And after dark, karaoke nights and shows keep things lively.
Restaurant Charme lays on big buffet spreads in the mornings, and it’s a waiter service set-up for lunch and dinner. Expect Mediterranean dishes and local specialities. The poolside bar, meanwhile, does a mean line in fruity cocktails.
