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.

Parent Points:

  • The balustrades are filled in on the landing but not on the stairs, so youngsters will need extra supervision
  • The rear gardens are all enclosed as one space; however, at the side of your villa, there is access to the unenclosed front garden, leading to the small public road, so extra supervision will be required when using the rear terrace


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.
