Wind down after a day of activities with a session in the hotel Spa which features an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, massage area and gym.
Rooms are decorated in a classic style with muted colours and each has a private balcony or patio with most overlooking the driving range.
Guests can dine in the Green Pines restaurant, or you can find lighter snacks at the poolside bar. There is also another bar in the hotel where you can relax with a drink in the evening.
The hotel is only 15 minutes by car to Vilamoura beach, one of the best in the region, and the hotel offers free transfers in summer months. It is 17 minutes by car to Vilamoura marina where you will find a number of restaurants and a busy nightlife scene.
The lively town of Vilamoura has developed around its bustling marina which, with 1300 berths, is the biggest in Portugal and has become one of Europe’s most popular leisure resorts.
Even though Vilamoura began to flourish as a tourist destination in the 1970s, its history stretches back much further and the Cerro da Vila Roman ruins, which can be found in the town’s museum (of the same name), hint at the ancient origins of the town.
The marina is without doubt the entertainment centre with many shops, restaurants, bars and clubs in the area. This is also where you will find the grand Vilamoura Casino with its avant-garde décor.
Vilamoura is a short distance from some beautiful beaches such as the Vilamoura beach to the East, and the spectacular Falésia beach to the West which is part of stretch of sand that measures over 5km in length, so we’re sure you’ll find a space to sunbathe.
Vilamoura’s prime location makes it ideally placed to enjoy a range of activities including boat trips, fishing, windsurfing, jet skiing, and golf.
The Algarve, which is Portugal’s southernmost province, is a 150 km long coastal region of outstanding beauty, long golden beaches, dramatic sandstone cliffs, picturesque villages and undulating landscape covered with fig, almond and olive trees. Rich in history, the Algarve is noted for the friendliness of its people and its mild climate, which is ideal for outdoor sports almost all year around.
Faro Airport: 20,8 km
Region & Cuisine
The southernmost region of Portugal, the Algarve, is without a doubt the best-known to visitors to the country from overseas thanks to its popularity as one of Europe’s main holiday destinations. Certainly the Algarve’s attractions are many, and not least its enviable climate with sunshine virtually year-round.
The region is probably most famous for its beaches and its numerous golf courses. The Algarve has around 100 miles of coastline, stretching from the border with Spain in the east right across the south of the country to Cape St Vincent in the west (this is the most south-westerly point in Europe), and then north for about 30 miles up to the border with the Alentejo region. And it’s a wonderful coastline with a mixture of extensive beaches of fine golden sand, small sandy coves and, in places, dramatic cliff-faces and rock formations. Inevitably, since the sixties and seventies there has been a lot of development centred on the main resorts such as Albufeira, Praia da Rocha and Vilamoura with the construction of hotels, apartments, marinas and so on, but in the extreme east and west of the Algarve coast, smaller towns – Tavira and Sagres as examples - while still offering the same glorious beaches remain almost untouched by the frenetic activity of the tourist centres.
The Algarve is not, however, just about beaches and golf. Inland the region is largely rural – hilly, and in places mountainous – and many of the picturesque little towns and villages in the interior appear to have changed little over the centuries and still retain their quiet, unhurried and relaxed way of life. Like the rest of the Iberian Peninsulathe Algarve became part of the Roman empire in the second century BC (there are important Roman remains on the coast in Lagos), but the longest occupation of the region was by the Moors who named the region Al-Gharb and who were finally expelled in 1250, completing the reconquest of Portugal. As in Andalusia in Spain,he archtectural legacy of the Moorish occupation is much in evidence throughout the region.
The principal, and by far the largest, city of the Algarve is Faro. Practically every visitor arrives here thanks to flights into its airport from all over Europe, but very few actually stay in Faro. But it’s an elegant coastal city with a medieval wall and many monuments, museums and churches and it definitely deserves a visit. Away from the coast two particularly attractive towns are Monchique, up in the hills about 20 miles from the resort of Portimao, and Loulé, an active market town a short drive inland from Vilamoura.
Apart from high-quality ‘international cuisine’ stemming from the tourism so important to this region, there are plenty of delicious local dishes available throughout the Algarve. Pork and chicken are the main ingredients for meat dishes, notably ‘Cataplana’ (pork with lots of clams and garlic) and ‘chicken piri-piri’ ranging from mild to very hot and spicy. But fish and seafood reign supreme here; grilled sardines are excellent on the Algarve coast and available practically everywhere while swordfish, bass, bream, squid, clams, lobsters and prawns are all of the highest quality and fresh as can be. Wines from all over Portugal are freely available, but the local wines from Lagos, Tavira and Lagoa are all good and the region produces several local varieties of liqueur.
