Belmar Spa & Beach Resort
Why We Love This Hotel
- Just a 5-minute walk from the golden sands of Praia de Porto de Mós
- 3km from the pretty, cobbled old town of Lagos
- Bright, modern apartments with well-equipped kitchens
- Great facilities - a gym, spa, indoor and outdoor pools and a children’s playground
It has sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, but the deluxe Belmar Spa & Beach Resort looks and feels like a Mediterranean resort. And when you think of the warm climate, the beaches, bars and restaurants on your doorstep, and the pretty, cobbled old town just a short drive away, is there really any difference?
If you’re at the Belmar, you’re there for the beach. But if you can drag yourself away, nearby Lagos, just 3km away, has plenty to offer. Stroll around the old town and check out some of its museums or galleries. Alternatively, opt for one of the many watersports on offer, take a boat trip or head for the zoo.
Nearby Praia de Porto de Mós offers bars and restaurants, as does Lagos, and you can cook for yourself in your apartment. Or head for Restaurant Levante, which serves Mediterranean dishes. The Sunset Lounge (open seasonally) and Lounge Bar serve drinks and pre-dinner cocktails. Other facilities include a spa with a sauna, Jacuzzi and hydrotherapy pool (both open seasonally), Turkish Bath and indoor heated pool. The gym has sea views and personal training sessions (extra fees apply), and there’s a sports pitch, children’s playground and outdoor swimming pools.
The resort is made up of an aparthotel and two ‘clusters’ of apartments. Apartments are bright, modern and air-conditioned, and available in every size from studio to three-bedroom properties. Kitchens are well-equipped, with dishwashers and washing machines, so you’re almost entirely self-sufficient.
