Our exclusive offer for your Martinhal Beach Resort booking includes your own Tots Baby and Toddler Essential Kit, and only the most child-friendly accommodation that we have specially hand selected and safety checked.
Designed with families in mind, Martinhal Beach Resort sits at the south-western most tip of the Algarve, looking out over the ocean, and surrounded by a protected natural park.
Wander down to the beach for early morning sandcastle building and snacks at the Beach Club, and then wander back for splashes in one of many pools, and playtime in the outdoor play area at the Village Square.
The Village Square has loads more for families to do, too, including M Bar, the family-friendly bar and hangout, a Gelateria, live entertainment, and a huge swimming pool which has indoor and outdoor sections.
This area is also home to the kids’ clubs, which are available for little ones from the age of six months, up to 16 years, with loads of fun activities on offer; outside of peak season, it is open to little ones aged six months to five years, free of charge.
The Ocean Houses are in prime location overlooking the sea, and are very close to the beach; the resort’s leisure facilities, Finisterra Spa, and the Village Square are nearby too, so you won’t have far to go all holiday.

Please note: This villa has spectacular sea views; however, it is possible to book the same style Ocean House with partial sea views for a lower price, please contact us for details.
Reynolds Family, September 2018
We have visited many family resorts across Europe and this resort blew all the others out of the water. I really cannot recommend this resort enough. Tots to Travel made the whole process so quick and easy and I will be using again for next years holiday!
The Mellers Family, June 2017
Fantastic family resort, where nothing seems to be too much trouble. Lots of toddler toilets which are a godsend for the recently potty-trained! Only downside was the prices in the onsite supermarket - astronomical :( if you don't hire a car this leaves you a bit dependent on their offering. Apart from this it was an utterly fabulous family holiday!
The Walls Family, June 2017
Excellent week in the most child-friendly destination we've ever visited. Lots for all of us to do and it managed to strike the balance between luxury break for the adults and non-stop fun for the kids. The Martinhal staff were all excellent. Overall, expensive but worth it.
Best Family, April 2018
Martinhal has mastered 5* relaxation for the parents whilst giving children a fantastic fun holiday.
Hewitt Family, April 2018
The resort was great. Everything was so easy and our 18 month old had so much fun swimming, playing on the beach, jumping on the trampolines and running around at the play areas that she was so worn out she did some fantastic napping for some downtime for us too! Would thoroughly recommend for anyone looking for a hassle free break in the sunshine.
Family Stayed June 2018
We all had a lovely holiday, food was good, the villa and resort very clean and the children’s entertainers at mealtimes where excellent! Bit windy and cool of an evening, wish I’d brought a light jacket and jeans but, otherwise a lovely experience .
Family Stayed May 2018
Excellent stay at the Martinhal. Everything was as good as the reviews we read about it before we went.
The Trapp Family, June 2017
Martinhal Sagres is a beautiful resort and perfect for a completely stress free holiday with toddlers. The resort is completely geared towards little ones and the staff are incredible and so friendly and great with children. The only downside is that the shop is very expensive so to cost effectively self cater you need a car to get to a supermarket.
The Fidler Family, May 2017
Fantastic place for our 3 and almost 1 year old, they really have thought of everything to make it as relaxed as possible for mum and dad. It was our first holiday with the 4 of us so a perfect setting.
Family stayed March 2016
My wife, myself and 10 month old daughter spent 4 nights here. After the first night we already regretted not booking a longer stay. There isn't much that I could add to all of the other glowing reviews except that they are correct and that this is one of the best places that we have ever stayed. Our daughter felt that "this was about her" immediately upon arrival as all of the staff are so kid-focused and friendly. After a long journey from Western Canada this was such a welcome retreat. We will certainly be staying here again once our daughter is old enough to enjoy some of the many activities they provide for kids. The Martinhal team has thought of absolutely everything a family could possibly need to have a relaxing and enjoyable stay with a young family.
Family stayed June 2015
I chose the Martinhal Beach Resort on the strength of numerous travel reviews. My view is consistent with the majority of travellers on this site - this is a fantastic family resort, in a wonderful location with excellent facilities. I spent a week here in June 2015 with my 4yr old son and 74yr old mother - they both absolutely loved it. For me, what I remember most was the friendliness and warmth of the staff at the resort and the people of Portugal in general. The world is such a big and beautiful place, but I'm tempted to return here with my son now aged 5 :-)
Family stayed March 2016
They really have thought of everything families could wish for at Martinhal resort. The resort is situated right next to a lovely secluded beach and within a short drive to some great surfing beaches. The resort is very well laid out with playgrounds located right next to all the main eateries so that the kids can play while the parents can watch them from the comfort of their table! The design of the complex is very sympathetic to the local environment and although it is a big resort it doesn't feel oppressive at all. As we travelled over the Easter break there was an extensive program of activities on offer for the kids from water sports to soccer to tennis (at additional cost), cinema club as well as a really well run kids club.
The Holt Family, November 2016
It was our first family holiday with out 16 month old and couldn't have been more perfect.
The Clark Family, May 2017
An excellent holiday resort. Perfect for small children and parents. Very high standard of accommodation and good food. Good choice for little ones.
The Yallup Family, May 2017
Our first stay at Martinhal and we are so glad we have found it. Great accommodation, very clean and quiet. All staff super helpful with amazing yoga and pilates instructors on-site and a beautiful beach on the doorstop. Our 3 year old had a terrific time on the beach trampolines and pools which never seemed crowded. We are planning our return.
The Barber Family, March 2017
Fantastic holiday, great facilities and lovely food. Children are definitely the number 1 priority at this resort which makes travelling with twins and young children so much easier and even relaxing!
