The 5-star Monte Santo Resort in Carvoeiro, Lagoa, is a great choice for a luxurious Algarve break -- and, with a large range of activities and a kids' club, it's a particularly great option for families -- as reflected by its TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Award 2015 in the Family category.
Carvoeiro, 45 minutes' drive from Faro airport, is an area is rich in sandy beaches -- the resort provides a free shuttle service to the beach, as well as to nearby golf courses.There are also theme parks nearby. The oceanfront São João do Arade Castle in Ferragudo, completed in the 1640s, is 10 minutes' drive away, and the magnificent Moorish Castle of Silves, overlooking the Rio Arade, is an 18-minute drive from the resort.
The resort is set on eight hectares including gardens and lakes. Its free-form outdoor swimming pool has a bar, lots of sun loungers, and plenty of floats and toys for children. There are also six smaller pools, including one for children, and a heated indoor pool. There are several roof terraces with Jacuzzis, which are perfect for watching the sunset. Guests have free access to the spa, sauna, gym and health facilities, which offer treatments and fitness classes (at a supplement).
The Monte Dos Comensais Restaurant & Lounge Bar, overlooking the pool, offers a variety of traditional dishes with a contemporary twist. It is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, and also includes child-friendly junior menus. Outdoor fitness equipment and tennis is available on site, and is free for guests to use. Younger guests are well looked after, too, with a Planet Junior activities programme, a Baby Must Have! and a Kids' Club, which runs from April to October.
