Hassle-free holidays at their finest – Martinhal Cascais has been designed especially for families with a fantastic Kids’ Clubhouse (and supervised sessions for ages six months to early teens), several safely enclosed play areas and a selection of pools.
The private villas give you your own cosy living space, and are located right by the Kids’ Clubhouse and main heated pool. While your youngsters are playing and making new little friends, chill out with a coffee at the nearby M Bar, or treat yourself to a treatment at the spa.
Evenings will offer the choice of enjoying dinner in your private villa, indulging in some Italian cuisine at Os Gambozinos in the main hotel, or heading into the nearby Cascais to explore the delicious restaurants – especially if you’ve booked a babysitter.

Family stayed July 2016
We had a fantastic holiday with our 6 year old twins, our kids would go back in a heartbeat. The kids club deserves a special mention. The staff there were wonderful and the girls had a great time with them. It has it's own pool area and a huge playground.
Family stayed July 2016
We had an incredible holiday at Martinhal Cascais. We really wanted a relaxing but fun holiday with our 5 and 7 year old children and that is difficult as we need to keep them entertained. Martinhal is such an excellent hotel for families because the kids club incredibly professional. The staff were fantastic and knew exactly how to keep unruly children under control and also make sure they have a lot of fun. The kids club itself is huge with lots of fantastic facilities - a kids cafe, outdoor play area with big trampoline and zip wires, a kids pool. Also it was affordable! 10€ per child for an entire three hour afternoon is brilliant. We honestly could not recommend this hotel enough for families and will definitely come back. Its magical!
Family stayed June 2016
Visited the resort over the half term break with two other families. Very contemporary style hotel. We stayed in one of the villas which was of an equal standard. The whole resort was spotless, even around the pool. Plenty for the children to do and always felt they were safe. Breakfast was excellent and the staff polite. All in all, highly recommended.

For all of your home comforts while you’re away, these luxury villas are modern and comfy, with the added bonus of a kitchen, living room and dining room.
The villas have two bedrooms with en suite shower rooms for comfortable living for all of your family.
Downstairs, the loft-style double-height living spaces have an open plan kitchen and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the garden.
The villas are right by the Kids’ Club and green areas, so, although they are private, you won’t have far to go to get to the heart of the action.
Our photos and description are for the Grand Deluxe Villa with bunk beds – it is possible to book a villa with a sofa bed instead of bunk beds for a lower price, please ask for details.
Martinhal Cascais is designed especially for families, so you’ll all find something to love here, from the enclosed play areas dotted about the resort, to the selection of pools and restaurants.
The star of the show is the 700 square metre Kids’ Clubhouse, which has play space for ages six months up to early teens; the supervised sessions include age appropriate games and activities, with a Baby Room for babies and toddlers – the sessions need to be booked in advance and may incur an additional charge depending on season.
If you would prefer your youngsters to be looked after in your villa, babysitting is also available at an additional cost.
There is a choice of pools, both heated and unheated, with a new Pool Hangout, which is open in July and August. If you fancy the chance to relax, head to the Finisterra Spa, where you can enjoy a treatment – there are men’s, mum and child, and teens and tweens treatments.
Indulge in yoga or personal training sessions and if you fancy a workout, there is a well-equipped gym nearby.
Breakfast is served gourmet buffet style in O Terraco restaurant, and you’ll also find the Italian Trattorio Os Gambozinos onsite, and M Bar, which is located at the Kids’ Clubhouse – perfect for relaxing with a pastry and a frothy coffee while your kids are making friends and having loads of fun at the Kids’ Club.
All three of the restaurants are super child-friendly with kids' menus and their own play areas.
The perfect spot for exploring, Martinhal Cascais is just a short drive from Cascais – the lovely coastal town has a choice of delicious restaurants.
Visit Guincho beach, which lies within Serra de Sintra National Park in Cascais; it has its own restaurant, and steps lead down from here to the beach, where there is also a shop, shower and loo facilities by the car park. Shuttle buses from the resort to the beach and into Cascais run all day.
It is a 30 minute drive to the centre of Lisbon, where you can visit Oceanário de Lisboa, Lisbon Zoo or Parque das Narções.
If you’ve got a variety of ages in your group, then Parque das Narções has plenty to please all, from an exciting cable car that runs across the whole park to bike hire for exploring as a family and interactive outdoor activities. Oceanário de Lisboa is also set in the park, so you can tick them both off your list in one day.
Considered one of the best aquariums in Europe, Oceanário de Lisboa is super fun for the family, with lots to keep youngsters interested; we’d recommend visiting on a week day, as it can get very busy at the weekends.
There’s so much to do at Lisbon Zoo that you should leave a full day to visit – children will love the well-cared-for animals, dolphin and sea lion shows, and petting farm.
Before booking, please read our Terms and Conditions.
