If you are heading for Southern Portugal this summer, spoil yourself rotten this year. There are many outstanding top shelf resorts in The Algarve waiting to attend to your every need. The following four have caught our eye for their unbelievable amenities…
1) Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa
Those looking for the ultimate in luxury in The Algarve needn’t look any further than Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa in Porches. Boasting a commanding view of the sea from its cliff top perch and its very own private beach beneath it, this resort is the perfect place to enjoy a dream holiday in The Algarve. When you tire of the beach, a world class spa awaits within, as does five restaurants, one of which boasts a chef with a Michelin Star to their name.
2) Estrela da Luz
Situated in Luz, this resort is more of a luxury apartment style development, which will appeal to those looking for a more homely experience during their time in Southern Portugal. Unlike your traditional holiday apartment rental, you likely won’t have to trudge your way to the supermercado and back, as hotel staff stock essentials like tea, coffee, and dishwasher detergent in the fridges in your suite.
When the heat of Southern Portugal begins to get to be too much for you, cool off in any one of the three pools on site, each of which has their own personality.
3) The View Beach Holiday Resort
A villa style resort that can be found in the delightful town of Salema, The View Beach Holiday Resort is a peaceful and quiet spot where one can soak up the beauty of The Algarve without being bothered by the more boisterous tourists in the bigger centres.
The resort grounds are kept immaculate by groundskeepers that are diligent in their work, and the individual units have enviable views, as many are built into the side of a cliff.
4) Vale d’El Rei Suite & Villas Hotel
This high class getaway in Lagoa offers the best of both worlds when it comes to resorts in the area: the privacy of personal villas, while a main complex offers the high class amenities that you would expect in a 5 star hotel.
The meals here (especially the breakfast buffet) are superb, while the accommodations offer all the accoutrements of home. Those looking to enjoy a refreshing adult beverage while they while away the day in and around the pool will be well attended to, as a pool bar serves up all the cocktails and beers you could ever want.
