Greetings from Portugal!


Summer has arrived and we look forward for one more terrific season at Martinhal! In the meantime I wanted to share some of news about Martinhal as well as our interesting packages and programmes.

We are excited to announce that we have won the Junior Magazine – Junior Design award for “Most Iconic Family Hotel” against a number of other hotels, most notably “Atlantis The Palm” in Dubai! We hope you will join us in celebrating this award!
EXTEND YOUR SUMMER INTO HALLOWEEN – Our great value Extended Summer offer has been extended and is now valid from 5th September until 1st of November. From 5th to 9th October, we’ll have our Martinhal Quiksilver and Roxy Surf Days



Sagres has the mildest climate on Continental Europe in the winter months and the weather really goes from Autumn straight into Spring! Sagres is like the “Califronia and Florida” of Europe – all in one! The south and west-coast beaches are fantastic surf beaches and the Algarve has the perfect conditions for the “snow-birds” of Europe for the winter months. And we have a lineup some Autumn/Winter events:
2nd – 9th November – Mother & Child Fitness Week and Wellbeing week  – Combine fitness and wellbeing with family Yoga sessions, nutrition workshops, vegetarian and raw food, tea making workshop, and more during this week.
9th – 16th November – Luxury Week – Charm, luxury brands and fine dinning.
16th – 23rd November – Walking week – We have a number of different walking routes to help you appreciate the wonderful natural park, historical landmarks and the stunning beaches that surround us.
23rd – 30th November – Bike Week -There will be road and mountain bike tours, as well as “electronic bike” tours. And we haven’t forgotten our children: children will have the usual fun riding bikes around the resort with special obstacle circuits, and perhaps even learning how to ride a bike.
24th November – 1st December – Kundalini Yoga – Join Andrea Schipper and Andre Danke for a week of yoga e meditation. There will be a complete programme to help guests to achieve Piece of Mind in stressful times.

Looking forward to hearing from you!Yours sincerely,Rosa Santos
