Wow where do I start... there are so many things to tell you about this amazing hotel...but most importantly for us it starts with the customer service and we can tell you that it is absolutely 1st class here with a bunch of genuinely caring people working hard, with a smile & genuine empathy making you feel that you could actually be at your best friends house, we have rarely felt so relaxed in a hotel.... The location is perfect 5 mins in a cab to Cascais, 25 mins from Lisbon or Sintra and a nice walk or bike ride to the beach or a choice of 2 world class golf courses! Combine this with fantastic onsite facilities for kids, a spa, 3 pools, 2 restaurants & 2 snack bars that all served amazing food all day and night... The hotel was full when we were there but because everything is spread out & there is so much to do it still felt very quiet & relaxed! No worrying about getting a nice sunbed or a table of choice to eat at here!! Spa treatments whenever you fancy, quiet swimming sessions, table tennis, football, this place really is an absolute gem, do not bother considering anywhere else if you want a high quality relaxed break where the kids are safe & happy with plenty to do giving you some quality time to yourself to relax. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners and their 4 kids while we were there and I was so impressed by their ability to understand what a family needs on a holiday. I have no doubt that with their commitment and dedication they will continue making this hotel and the Martinhal brand top of the list when considering a high quality family holiday in Portugal.

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!

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.

The child-friendly hotel has been specially designed, with pastel tones and wood detailing throughout the rooms.
Each family room has a luxury en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, bath, twin basins and an enclosed loo.
Huge windows open out onto a spacious balcony, where you can chill out with a glass of wine after a busy day with the kids.
There are no kitchen facilities in any of the rooms but the hotel’s restaurants are close by, and 24-hour room service is available; there is a mini-bar, a Nespresso coffee machine, and tea making facilities in the rooms.
We have three different family room types available:
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.
