Great facilities, super for families
Posted May 14, 2016
We spent a week at Martinhal at the beginning of May in a 3 bed villa (upgraded from 3 bed town house which was a lovely suprise on arrival). The villa was immaculate and well equipped, with everything you could need for babies/children including stairgates, cot and high chair all set up for us on arrival. The concierge were fabulous, nothing was too much trouble. The private pool was cold as not heated but we braved it and enjoyed using the lovely garden and bbq. There is also a communal outdoor and indoor pool and breakfast was of an excellent standard with really friendly staff who clearly all love little ones. The shop is perfect for essentials but a car is beneficial to get to the nearest big supermarket in Almancil. We didn't use the childcare as our baby is too little but it looked great. We walked to the beach and back once (20 mins each way) and drove once, exceptionally clean and quiet. We also drove to Martinhal Sagres for lunch, gorgeous coastline and super food with a puree menu for babies! A fabulous holiday and we're now real fans of the Martinhal brand, they've thought of everything for families so you can go with complete confidence that you'll have a great time with little ones.
A watch out, we had issues sitting together with our flights booked through Expedia. Although in online check-in we had seats together when we got to the airport it transpired that they weren't in both directions due to where baby masks are located, very disappointing.
