It is in the Algarve, in the extreme south of Portugal, that the Martinhal Quinta awaits, a luxurious complex dedicated to families.

With its natural reserves and splendid golf courses, the Algarve is the region of choice to recharge in Portugal.

It is just a 25-minute drive from the Faro International Airport. The center of Faro is also about 20 minutes away by car, an opportunity to visit this still somewhat unspoilt city of tourism.


The Portuguese Martinhal chain has been designed for families. The 4 hotels of the group (all bookable on our website with Little Guest special conditions) offer luxurious infrastructures and a wide range of family services, each in their own style and in different regions of Portugal.

The Martinhal Quinta is a small village, surrounded by beautiful gardens, which offers each family comfort and privacy. Everyone can, at their leisure, enjoy the common areas or enjoy the quiet, while enjoying the many services of the hotel.

The property features:

  • 12 designer villas with private pools
  • 1 outdoor pool
  • 1 indoor pool
  • 1 child pool
  • 2 restaurants
  • 1 market
  • 1 spa
  • 1 massage service at home
  • 1 baby club for babies from 6 to 23 months old
  • 1 kids club for children from 2 to 9 years old
  • 1 playroom



In order to fulfil all your needs, there are different villas layouts. As a matter of fact, you can choose between the 2-bedroom houses (133 sqm – 1431 sqft), the 3-bedroom houses (194 sqm – 2088 sqft), the 3-bedroom villas (310 sqm – 3336 sqft) and the 4-bedroom villas (346 sqm – 3724 sqft).

All of them are carefully decorated with elegance to make you feel at home. The light tones and sands are privileged, which is reminiscent of the coastal villas’ style. The floors are made of stone to guarantee maximum freshness in all rooms: en-suite bedrooms, living room and fully equipped kitchen.


In order for you to enjoy your own fully equipped kitchen, the Martinhal Quinta offers you the Deli & Bake Market where you can find delicious ingredients and fresh products.

For a quick snack, M-bar welcomes you to the main pool throughout the day, offering a wide variety of snacks (burgers, sandwiches), as well as ice-creams and refreshing drinks.

That is at the family restaurant O terraço that you can enjoy a tasty breakfast buffet, ideal to start the day.

In the region, restaurants are numerous, whether star-rated or more suitable for casual family meals. Do not hesitate to contact the receptionist of the Martinhal who will find you a suitable restaurant.

FOR the children

To make it as easy as possible for families, the Martinhal Quinta offers: barriers for beds and stairs, cots for children, adapted toilet seats, bottle warmers and sterilizers.

Be sure to book these items in advance via our “booking” page, in order to guarantee your availability.

The Raposinhos Club and the Fox Club take care of children from 2 to 5 years old, and from 6 to 8 years old, respectively. In Portuguese, Raposinhos means “little foxes”, and this illustrates the club’s philosophy. Through games and activities, children are invited to be as curious and keen as small foxes. All activities are supervised by professional leaders, who are recruited with care.

For children over 8 years of age, many activities are possible in the region (from water sports to horse riding to walks). Within the hotel, the Blue Room is also a place where young and old can have fun and make new friends, regardless of the kids-club. You will find game consoles, table football, billiards, table tennis etc. An additional babysitting service is also available for children of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest.



Thanks to its exceptional location, between nature reserves and the Atlantic Ocean, the Algarve is full of activities. It is possible to try out many water sports (kayaking, surfing, diving, jet skiing and many others), or to discover the natural parks by jeep, on foot, by bike or even on horseback.

The city of Faro is only 20 minutes away from the hotel. Often overlooked by tourist routes, Faro has kept its charm of yesteryear. You will be able to visit its magnificent cathedral, its historical center or taste typical Portuguese cuisine in one of its many restaurants and bars. Children will be delighted to learn that several water parks are located in the vicinity of the Martinhal. Thus Aquashow Park offers water attractions of all kinds, just 20 minutes from the hotel. A little further on, Zoomarine (about 40 minutes) offers, in addition to water attractions, dolphin shows and magnificent aviaries where tropical birds fly.

Finally, the Spanish city of Seville, a true jewel of Andalusia, is only 2h20 drive from Martinhal Quinta. You can opt for a complete tour of the city by horse-drawn carriage (to spare the feet of small walkers), stroll in the gardens of the Alcazar palace or visit the renowned aquarium. Why not finish off your day by savoring delicious Spanish tapas?



The Algarve is THE region of golf par excellence in Europe. The Martinhal Quinta offers you 7 different courses. Come practice your swing with the family, as a couple or among friends on these splendid greens whose reputation is peerless.

For shopping enthusiasts, just a 10-minute drive from the Martinhal is the Quinta Shopping, a large shopping and restaurant complex. The opportunity to discover unique Portuguese brands, to grab a bite to eat or to make yourself beautiful in a hairdresser or beautician. Less than one hour’s drive from the hotel, Mum and Dad will enjoy a fun day at the kids-club to explore the Quinta Dos Vales wine cellars. The cellars are located in the countryside, adding a touch of charm to the tastings.

Finally, the hotel offers a spa service, in the comfort of your House / Villa. Different massages are available, you just have to choose and be pampered!

Family holidays under the sun of portugal


Juglair Couple Martinhal Quinta


Pascale, proud mother and grand-mother, from France



In May 2019, my (very) large tribe and I headed to the Algarve region of southern Portugal to spend a week at the Martinhal Quinta. Everyone agreed that this hotel was just great, both the 8 adults and the three children aged 7 years, 3 years and 7 months. Between entertainment for the little ones and activities for the grown-ups, resting by our swimming pool and a relaxing session in the hammam, we had a really delicious stay.


A stay between comfort and intimacy 

Upon arrival at Faro Airport, three vehicles brought us to the hotel gates in less than 30 minutes. The welcome was extremely warm and the children especially liked it as they received several small welcome gifts including backpacks that they used throughout their stay. As for the hotel itself, we immediately compared it to a sort of small village. Indeed, between its super cute common areas, its gardens that give the impression of being the last woman on earth, and the magnificent villas that offer a real sense of intimacy, the Martinhal Quinta really guarantees a warm and relaxing atmosphere.


Two villas for one large family

The establishment offers rooms, suites and villas. Since there were many of us, we opted for the last option. So, I booked a two-bedroom villa and a three-bedroom villa. With their welcoming interior design, comfortable living space and quiet private outdoor areas, the villas were cocoons of happiness for the whole family.

Each villa had its own garden and private swimming pool and the bedrooms had direct access to the bathrooms. They therefore guaranteed us real privacy within the hotel and we particularly appreciated this. Special mention should be made of the fully equipped kitchens in both villas; we often ate there for lunch and they had everything we needed to prepare good meals for everyone.

All in all, the Martinhal Quinta really seems to have been created for families. In addition to cooking in the villas, it is possible to shop at the hotel’s supermarket, the Mercado Deli & Bake, or to enjoy delicious food in one of the hotel’s two restaurants. While we often had lunch in our houses, we also had breakfast and dinner at the main restaurant, the O Terraço.

The services offered also met our expectations. Between the entertainment for the children during breakfast, the great massages that we were lucky enough to enjoy and the beach located just a stone’s throw from the hotel, every day was a real treat. It is also important to stress that families with children will not lack anything. Indeed, as we have seen, the hotel provides its guests with children’s beds, toilet seats adapted to the smallest children, bottle warmers and other small daily necessities.


Idleness, swimming pool and relaxation

We were looking for a restful and relaxing week, and that’s exactly what we experienced. We found that the hotel had two great looking kid clubs, the Raposinhos and the Fox club, but we didn’t use them because we really wanted to spend time together as a family. It’s good to know, though, that a babysitting service is also available if needed.

Bicycles and pedal boats were also available, but the week went by so quickly that we didn’t have the opportunity to use them. We preferred to take advantage of the swimming pools, swim in the nearby sea and go for beautiful walks to discover the region. Faro and its historical centre are less than 25 minutes away by car, so the hotel is the perfect starting point to discover the city.

Finally, some of us offered ourselves the services of a team of truly gifted masseurs and came away satisfied. After a good day in the sun, I loved going to the hammam, perfect for relaxing before a good night’s sleep. For sports enthusiasts who will be lucky enough to stay in this little paradise, the hotel also has a fitness room and a tennis court.


At the restaurant or at the villa, the choice is yours

As mentioned earlier, we had lunch in the villas but had breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant. The Martinhal Quinta has two of them, the M-bar which is located by the main pool and mainly serves quick snacks, ice creams and cold drinks, and the O Terraço, the main restaurant.

As we have seen, many holidaymakers, like us, decide to eat at the latter. In the morning and in the evening, we were delighted with the dishes served there; I am thinking in particular of the absolutely perfect breakfast which allowed us to start the day in a joyful and good mood!

Finally, even though we preferred to take advantage of the hotel’s services, it’s a good idea to point out that the area around Faro, and the Algarve in general, is full of restaurants, from the most family-friendly to the most luxurious, and even a few starred ones.


In a nutshell

Our stay at the Martinhal Quinta was like a dream. Whether you are a fan of water sports, nature walks, cultural discoveries or simply relaxing by the pool, I can’t recommend it enough. Luxurious but family-friendly, intimate and warm, it’s the ideal place to spend a great family holiday and forget about the daily routine during a stay under the sun.
