Set on the edge of the Ria Formosa natural park in Olhao, Real Marina Hotel is one of the Algarve's newest 5-star resorts with superb views over the estuary and the Gulf of Cadiz beyond. The fishing port of Olhao isn’t the liveliest of towns in the Algarve -- Faro, a short drive down the coast, has more nightlife -- but its peaceful centre and Moorish architecture make it "a rare gem", says The Guardian.

At the hotel, the Restaurante do Real serves up tasty Mediterranean cuisine including fresh local seafood and traditional Portuguese dishes. More casual all-day dining is available at the Ria Lounge Restaurant & Bar, while the Bar do Real (open until 1am) offers evening snacks and regularly features live music. The spa is kitted out with 10 treatment rooms, a fitness gym, sauna, steam room and a thalassotherapy saltwater pool with massage jets. Outside, guests can swim in the freshwater pool or sunbathe on the deck, and it's just a short boat trip across the lagoon to the beaches on laid-back Culatra Island.

The large rooms are crisp and modern with a nautical theme and there’s a hint of the city's Moorish history in the fretwork detail. Half of the rooms overlook the water and half the town, but all have balconies. Suites are larger and come with separate sitting areas and dining tables for four.
