How could you possibly resist only being five minutes from the Algarve’s most prestigious beaches? The sand between your toes and world-famous golf courses in sight, and that’s just the beginning with a holiday to the 4 star Eden Resort. This set of fully equipped villas ensures an unforgettable escape with an elite kids’ club, five outdoor pools and sports courts galore.
Couples will also fall head-over-heels for this establishment, after all it offers premium spirits to All Inclusive guests as standard and has a state-of-the-art spa. Set among expanses of lush green landscapes, you can well and truly unwind in Portugal’s tranquil countryside before checking out Albuferia’s biggest draws.
Traditional Portuguese interiors
Although the hotel boasts a modern flare, there’s plenty of subtle Portuguese touches throughout the building with art adorned walls and warm colours providing that homely feel.
Villas enjoy many perks including complimentary Wi-Fi, an LCD TV, sofa bed, kitchen, sunloungers as well as a bathroom which features both a shower and bathtub.
These two-story houses are located amidst the gardens and ooze tropical allure. There’s also a generous living room and a private outdoor area for sun worshippers. For a more intimate setting, we suggest staying in an apartment which still includes all of the same additional extras but in a smaller space.
The hotel’s showstopper and mouth-watering buffet, the Sin Restaurant caters to all tastes with its fantastic range of fare. On the terrace you can dine al fresco under the stars, while feasting on the twice weekly barbecue. Come morning you’ll be welcomed by the delicious smell of fried eggs or sweet pastries, which will be washed down by the restaurant’s choice of fruit juices or coffees.
You can’t leave without heading to the dessert table, and we wouldn’t be surprised if you go back for seconds once you sample the sugary cakes and chocolate infused mousse. Once appetites are satisfied, there are four bars ready and waiting with snacks and alcoholic drinks. Original cocktails are served at the Apple, meanwhile over at the Kiosk kids can help themselves to fizzy pop or squash.
Perfect for families
As well as your accommodation being completely child friendly, there’s an endless list of daily activities and top-notch facilities for all generations. The kids’ club has tots up to 12-years-old covered with multi-sports fields and a playground. There are also karaoke nights, quizzes, aqua Zumba and concerts that the entire family can enjoy. However, the animation team are only on hand between April and October, so bear this in mind when booking your sensational getaway.
Adults this one’s for you, the Adam & Eve spa is your gateway to peace and quiet. Let those aches and pains float away after a dip in the Turkish bath or a steam in the sauna. Treatments come at a cost, but they’re worth every penny with professional therapists on hand to ensure nothing but serenity.
Discover the Algarve
As you walk out of the Eden Resort doors you’re met with once in a lifetime activities and breathtaking sights. Surrounded by the sun-soaked Blue Flag awarded beaches of the Algarve, lazy days on the sand are encouraged. Adventure seekers can head on off-road safaris through the island’s most rural spots and laid-back types can sip the flavours of the vineyards on a wine tasting tour.
As for families, there’s a adrenaline-pumping waterpark just moments away and boat tours for underwater swimming and cave explorations.
