Indoors & Outdoors


These two-bedroom townhouses are in their own quiet area at the top of the resort, looking out over the natural park and down towards the sea.  Their upside-down layout makes the most of those fab views. Each townhouse is individually decorated in a fresh, modern style.

  • Private garden for playing in
  • Big sun-trap balcony with views over the resort and out to sea
  • Large open plan living, dining and kitchen area on the first floor
  • Master bedroom with en suite bathroom
  • Twin bedroom
  • Family shower room
  • Private parking
  • Air conditioning
  • Laundry room

TOTS Top Tip: There is plenty of room for a cot in both bedrooms.

Parent Points:

  • Although the stairs are gated top and bottom, the balustrades are slightly wider than recommended so parents will need to supervise children
  • Both bedrooms lead out into the garden which is unenclosed; please ensure that the shutters are closed and locked to prevent unsupervised access
  • As with all balconies, children should not be left unsupervised – please note that there are small triangular openings in the balcony walls that young children may try to climb on
  • The garden is surrounded by hedging but there is an opening that leads to an enclosed communal garden, so children will need supervising
  • The large glass doors do not have stickers on them so please take care that children know whether they are open or closed
  • Under Portuguese law smoke alarms are not required as statutory and this villa is not fitted with them, however Carbon Monoxide alarms are fitted as standard


You have the entire Martinhal Beach Resort as your playground. Your challenge will be choosing what to do first.

  • Head to the glorious sandy beach for sandcastle making or paddling in the shallow surf
  • Families with older kids can try their hand at watersports like surfing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking
  • For refuelling after all the activity, head to As Dunas at the beach for a buffet lunch, with kids’ buffet station and outdoor play area
  • Back in the resort you have a choice of swimming pools, eateries and bars. The Village Square is the ideal hang out for families – grab an ice cream at the Gelataria or a chilled drink at M Bar
  • A brilliant kids’ club for children aged six months to 16 years will keep your littlies happily entertained while you grab moments of me time at the Finisterra Spa
  • Work up a sweat in the gym, at a group exercise class, hire bikes for a family cycle to explore the local area, have a game of tennis or PADEL or squeeze in a round of golf. Older kids will love the football academy

What's Around?

You’ll be hard pressed to leave all the resort fun behind, but this beautiful corner of Portugal is well worth exploring.

  • Sagres town nearby is beautiful and relatively untouched by tourism. Visit the old fort and see the traditional working harbour in action
  • Children’s Science Centre with loads of interactive displays and workshops, 35 minutes’ drive away
  • Lagos Zoo, home to a host of animals and two playgrounds just 30 minutes away
  • For more seaside exploring, hop on a boat trip – you might catch a glimpse of friendly dolphins
  • Take a 10-minute drive to Cabo Sao Vicente, mainland Europe’s most westerly point, a wild headland that feels like the edge of the world
