This resort has a spectacular oceanfront setting and exceptional sports and leisure facilities.

This large resort has influences from Portugal’s Arab heritage, and beautiful architecture which creates a charming setting. It sits in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and red sandstone cliffs, with direct access by lift and steps down to Falésia Beach. Enjoy use of the loungers, parasols, towels and a beach bar with a choice of sandwiches, snacks, grilled fresh fish, ice creams and drinks. During the warmer months, there are plenty of watersports such as windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking and banana rides. There are eight outdoor pools, a 9-hole golf course, five tennis courts and a health club. Budding Wimbledon champions can enjoy coaching and tennis clinics at the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy. Kids can let their imagination run wild while playing in the two life-size pirate ships and take part in a range of daily activities such as treasure hunts and games.

There’s a great choice of restaurants which range from themed buffets at Jardim Colonial, the main restaurant, to mouth-watering prime cuts at the Piri Piri Steak House. Try some of the region’s fresh and delicious seafood at the O’Pescador Restaurant and tuck into delicious Japanese-fusion cuisine at Yakuza Algarve by Olivier. The elegant lobby bar is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of port or local spirits.

The elegant rooms and apartments reflect Moorish heritage in their style and are in gardens, with some overlooking the sea. Deluxe Rooms are in the hotel’s main building. Upgrade to a Deluxe Sea View Room for views over the red cliffs and sea. Spacious Grand Deluxe Rooms have a living area while the One Bedroom Ocean Suites have an open-plan living area and kitchen, as well as a dining area.
