Nearby Things to Do

Measuring roughly 26 by 15 meters (85 by 50 foot), an irregularly shaped outdoor pool paired with a six-meter (20-foot) children's pool provides warm-weather swimming, while a 12 by 6 meter (40 by 20 foot) heated pool in a Plexiglas solarium supplies year-round recreation.

The nearest beach is Vale do Garrão, 800 meters (875 yards) from the hotel, with complimentary shuttle service available from May through October. Unlike the western Algarve, where cliffs interrupt beaches, sand extends unimpeded for miles along the Atlantic Ocean in this area. The hotel provides complimentary use of lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels on the beach. Independent operators rent water sports gear on the beach during the summer.

The hotel rents bicycles.

6 golf courses lie within five kilometers (three miles) of the hotel, 2 within the Vale do Lobo development to the west and 4 within the Quinta do Lago development to the east.
