A big dilemma that many families face when thinking about their holiday is the temptation of the luxury of hotel versus the practicality of a villa or apartment.
The perfect solution is to take an apartment or villa connected to a hotel or resort. This option gives you the best of both worlds – the resort facilities with additional privacy. We have picked the best resorts with hotel-style facilities giving you the option of family-friendly apartment and villa accommodation for flexibility and space.
You are absolutely spoilt for choice in the Algarve, Portugal which has traditionally been a favourite family destination. However, we have included some other destinations below.
A best seller – choose from 1-3 bedroom ‘houses’ or 3-5 bedroom individual villas all with fabulously spacious living areas and modern kitchens. The resort has great facilities including a crèche and kids clubs, spa, tennis, restaurants (casual and fine-dining), bar/ cafe and is located on a perfect sandy beach. The pools are heated too!
Located beside a stunning beach, the studio and 1-bedroom apartments at Epic Sani share a pool and playground of their own with an all-day cafe. Of course all the facilities of the hotel are open to guests including a baby room and kids clubs. There is a supermarket very close by and the hotel has several restaurants.
Monte da Quinta Suites, Algarve
These 1, 2 or 3 Bedroom Suites are sold on bed and breakfast like hotel rooms but each has an open plan living area and kitchen too! On-site there is a crèche and kids’ clubs for younger kids as well as a restaurant. Located in the unspoilt resort of Quinta do Lago, a car is useful to get around and explore.
Always receiving outstanding reviews, The Lake Resort is an option well worth considering. There are 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, a kids club from 3 years as well as a family-friendly sandy-bottom pool. We love the location that’s just a 300m stroll from Falesia Beach as well as the marina, bars and restaurants of Vilamoura.
1 and 2 bedroom apartments surround the family pool at this luxurious 5-star resort in the quieter Western Algarve. With a sandy beach and the charming harbour town of Lagos nearby, the location is ideal for families. The resort features a spa, tennis courts and a children’s club from 4 years.
