Superb spacious child friendly accommodationPosted May 21, 2017
Pros: Superb accommodation and child friendly pools
Cons: There is no Hotel directory in the room so you learn things as you go on. The online catalogue isn't very helpful - like what time is check out?!?
Location: Sagres doesn't have a lot to see and do - hire a car and get out to see the Algarve. The journey from Faro to the resort is very easy.
Spent 7 nights at Martinhal Sagres - we had an ocean deluxe 2 bed. With a toddler and a baby the accommodation was ideal and had been really well thought through - really felt like home from home in terms of all the equipment we had. The pools are great for small children - our son was just happy for hours on end playing in the paddling pools. Our children used the creche and the kids club and the staff seemed very competent - in fact our son liked it so much he wanted to go back after they had closed. The 'village square' is great with small children - you can sit and watch the sun go down with a drink. Couple of things to think about if you visit this place: - Having a hire car was ideal for us - meant we could easily go to the close by local supermarket and do day trips. The cost of the hire wasn't much more than a transfer - I will give it the benefit of the doubt as we weren't in high season (May) but Sagres wasn't the best - not a lot to see and do. Hence comment above - if you want to see something of the Algarve you really need a hire car - The resort is quite hilly down from reception to the main pool - there are buggy ramps but its better to walk or carry your child down and leave your buggy at the top - It's not easy to find out what equipment the accommodation comes with ahead of arrival but they are really well equipped (inc washer/ dryer) for families so its easy to self cater. Also ask for the list of baby equipment that can be provided

Exceptional family hotelPosted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: The standards of service lived up to the price. We weren't once disappointed - very refreshing!
Cons: The shuttle to the town could be a little cheaper and more regular.
Location: Sagres is a lovely, sleepy little seaside town. We visited Lagos which made for a busier day with more shops, etc. The beaches are clean and beautiful
I cannot rate this hotel enough. The standards of care, service and cleanliness are second to none and we had the holiday of a lifetime. It is pricey but, unlike some hotels, it lives up to it's cost - and more. I would definitely re-book and it's a lovely spot to holiday. Portugal is a wonderful, friendly and clean country and this hotel captures that culture. Stunning beaches, delicious food and friendly staff who cared for our son and us. Expedia offered a good mid-season package with flights.

Home from homePosted Nov 7, 2016
Location: Surfers' paradise!
For those wanting a family holiday with a 'home' for a base, Martinhal provides all that is needed - along with lovely views from the ocean houses. Well presented, comfortable and easy to live in. For those with older families, the restaurants can be a little noisy - but the main restaurant tips the balance back with lovely panoramic views of the bay, and there are plenty of options town.

Excellent for young childrenPosted Sep 23, 2016
The resort is fantastic for young children with playgrounds, pools and clubs galore. The villas are fab. Only problem is the food. The terrace is the only restaurant that does good food. Others are poor. The supermarket on site is poorly stocked and far too expensive eg. 18€ for 11 swim nappies. Take a taxi to the local supermarket. Would say it's more of a 4 star but still a great holiday destination.

Great location right on by the beachPosted Jul 10, 2016
Pros: The staff are lovely.
Cons: Grounds maintainance. Restaurants food.
Location: There are great relaxed restaurants in Sagres and well worth a visit.
Our recent stay at the hotel was great. Not a five star hotel but by far a super hotel with kids in tow. It definitely is set up to ensure parents enjoy it as equally as the kids do. Our three year old was a joy during the week - mainly because there was so much for her to do. Food in the restaurants could certainly be improved - other reviewers comment on it not being value for money and this is definitely accurate, but there are lots of great little restaurants in Sagres so you are no forced to eat at the resort. All in all I would most definitely return and would highly recommend for families.

Kids everywhere!Posted Jun 17, 2016
If you are on holiday with your kids, it is ok, but if it's a romantic break you are after, this is not the place. Average food, constant noise of children and very average hotel staff, especially on reception and when you check in.

High quality, family friendly accommodationPosted May 12, 2016
Pros: Great standard of accommodation. Amazing friendly staff. Quality food and drink easily available. Play facilities are great. And plenty for adults too
Cons: The watersports charges are excessive. Team great but equipment is pretty standard and basic stuff (canoe, SUP, body-boards) should be free for sure.
Location: Great location. Amazing spacious beaches all around. On site facilities are great And the local amenities though not glitzy are great quality.
We had a great break here in this excellent hotel. Stress free and plenty for everyone to do.

Great accommodation not so great restaurantsPosted May 12, 2016
We just came back from a week in a 2 bed sea view house. Whilst the house, resort and facilities are top notch we were less impressed with the restaurants and staff. The restaurants are very expensive for what they are and the village shop is a rip off! By day 3 we decided this was a self catering holiday and that we should explore local restaurants. A car is an absolute must as you really are quite stuck in the area otherwise. The waiting staff do seem to spend most of the time standing around chatting. The accommodation was awesome and the views stunning! Highly reccomend house 207 ocean view! If you don't mind your holiday being self catering then you will have a wonderful trip!
