Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort 

A resort of two halfs

This sun-kissed resort is part family friendly haven, part grown up's Algarve playground.

It might seem like a tall order for a resort to be both exceedingly family-friendly and perfect for an adults-only break, yet Anantara Vilamoura has masterfully executed the kind of resort that makes everyone feel right at home. On one side, there’s a kids’ club, a teens club, and a family pool. On the other, you step into a world of privacy and tranquillity exclusively for adults. Everyone’s welcome at the restaurants, but some of the venues have adult-only times. Add in a sumptuous spa, and three beaches within easy reach, and you’ve got a holiday that ticks a lot of boxes.

Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort is divided in two areas (room types and specific outlets), one that is perfect for families and one that's for adults only. The resort will operate like so during the summer period from Mid April to 31st October. During the rest of the year, all the resorts amenities will be open to all guests.

Why we love Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort

  • The family rooms that have direct access to the pool are brilliant – the kids will love you for choosing one of these. Plus, they come with child-friendly snacks and bathroom amenities.

  • Kids’ buffets and play areas in the restaurants help make mealtimes stress-free. Although if you fancy an adults-only evening, babysitting is available.

  • Cooking classes for children take place daily at Victoria Restaurant from 6.30 pm – perfect for tempting them to try new foods!

  • The resort is close to a handful of golf courses including the Laguna and Millenium courses.
