This sophisticated design hotel and resort, located on the rugged south-western tip of Portugal, is an ideal destination for active family holidays.

Set back from a long, sandy beach, the resort sits within a wild and windswept national park, offering the ideal balance of nature and luxury. The bold contemporary architecture is a perfect match for the dramatic setting of the resort, whilst the organic interiors, featuring local stone, cork and wicker are both stylishly minimalist and warmly welcoming.

Martinhal features 37 hotel rooms (some interconnecting) with partial or full sea views, as well as dozens of sleek self-catering villas and houses. Conceived very much as a family resort, children of all ages are expertly catered for. A baby concierge can reserve baby and toddler gear – from cots to sterilisers – and children of all ages are well cared for, either at the crèche or a series of kids clubs for children aged up to 16.

The culinary offerings are a highlight at Martinhal and the three excellent restaurants all offer fresh creative dishes that put a new spin on Portuguese classics. The focus is on local, sustainable products, so expect plenty of fresh seafood, seasonal fruits and vegetables and wine lists featuring Portuguese-only vintages. All restaurants have special baby and children menus and the thoughtful layout, which places play areas adjacent to restaurants and snack bars, means children can entertain themselves between courses.

A stay at Martinhal is all about action: at the resort one can play tennis and padel tennis, join fitness classes or swim in one of the five pools, whilst outside there is the national park to explore on foot, bike or jeep. Steady breezes and an ocean-side location make it a mecca for lovers or wind- and water-sports and guests can practice surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, SUP, Kitesurfing, blokarting and more.

Our Reviews

Alice visited Martinhal Sagres in May 2018 with her family: "Wir hatten dank der überaus individuellen, umfangreichen und kompetenten Beratung einen wunderbaren Familienurlaub in Portugal. Vielen Dank dafür! Wir werden bestimmt ganz bald noch einmal über The Little Voyager buchen."

 

Erika visited Martinhal Sagres in July 2020 with her family: "Zu Martinhal Sagres, wir hatten zwei super Wochen Ende Juli/Anfang August. Während es zuhause in der Schweiz 35 Grad hatte , waren es in Sagres “nur” angenehme 25 - genau unser Ding! Aus dem Pool oder Meer heraus kommend schon etwas Gänsehaut Feeling, aber dafür auch Schlafen ohne Klimaanlage im Hochsommer und viel Atlantik-Wind um die Nase, der bei uns spontan Lust auf ein paar Windsurf Stunden machte, während die Kinder im Kids-Club ihren Spaß hatten (etwas abgespecktes Angebot aufgrund von COVID). Das Sicherheitskonzept wird gut umgesetzt und man fühlt sich bestens aufgehoben. Klar, es ist alles etwas eingeschränkt, nicht alle Restaurants sind geöffnet und wenn man beispielsweise ins Fitness-Studio möchte, muss man vorher seinen Slot reservieren. So wenig war garnicht los, also zumindest in unserer ersten Woche. Unser “partial seaview” Ocean-Haus hatte eigentlich vollen Meerblick, zumindest aus dem im ersten Stock gelegenen Wohnbereich, wo sich das Leben abspielt. Insgesamt ist das Martinhal schon sehr gut durchdacht, gutes Publikum, wunderschöne Lage und ganz wichtig, wir hatten jetzt nicht den totalen Kinder Overflow, wovor wir immer etwas Respekt hatten (mag aber auch der geringeren Auslastung geschuldet sein). Super Wassersport-Möglichkeiten! Kompliment an Ilonka von The little Voyager, die immer zeitnah antwortet und jede noch so kleine Rückfrage zuverlässig und geduldig beantwortet. Wir freuen uns schon auf’s nächste Mal! Bitte weiter so!"

 

Bill had booked a holiday at Martinhal Sagres in July 2020 with his family: "Thank you Ilonka! My family (of 14 with 3 generations) booked a Golden Wedding holiday in Sagres, Algarve. Unfortunately the Covid-19 virus took over and it looked as though we would lose thousands of pounds. But Ilonka stepped in and with great kindness and professionalism negotiated the full return of all our costs. She responded immediately and never once did we have a cross word. She kept us included in all her negotiations and fully informed on her progress with the resort. . What a women! It took her a lot of work on our behalf and we are eternally grateful. Obviously we are now looking for a holiday with The Little Voyager for 2021. Muchas gracias amiga Ilonka y hasta la vista. Perhaps you could take over RyanAir?"

 

Claire visited Martinhal Sagres in August 2021 with her family: "Ionka, thank you so much for helping us sort another fabulous holiday. This place was pure luxury for adults and perfect for kids. I almost cried when we saw the view from the hotel it’s just so gorgeous. Thank you again and we look forward to booking another holiday soon xxx!"

Carmen H. visited Martinhal Sagres in April 2024 with her family: "Dear Ilonka, I wanted to reach out and say thank you for always being so amazing in organising our family holidays. This time there was obviously a massive problem with the flight being cancelled and I can’t thank you enough for helping rearrange our stay. We had a brilliant time and loved our time at Martinhal Sagres. Your team are incredible and I look forward to booking more holidays soon."

The Area

Sagres is quite unlike anywhere else in southern Portugal. Located on the western tip of the Algarve and occupying the most south-westerly point in Europe, it’s isolated position gives it an end-of-the-world feel.

Up until the 15th century, this was as far as the known world extended. It was here that Henry the Navigator, the Portuguese prince who ushered in the Age of Discovery, brought together ship builders, cartographers, astronomers and mariners and challenged them to find out what lay beyond the horizon.

Today, Sagres sits within the Costa Vicentina national park, a protected coastal area of dramatic natural beauty characterised by towering cliffs, pounding seas and dozens of vast, empty beaches.

Sagres town perches on a headland, overlooking a picturesque harbour that is still a centre for lobster fishing and boatbuilding. Here one can find a handful of casual bars and eateries, but little else. Mass tourism has yet to reach this remote corner of the Algarve and those that visit therefore tend to be of an adventurous mind-set.

Surfers, windsurfers, kite surfers and body boarders all come to enjoy the wind and waves whilst hikers and mountain bikers find solitude and spectacular scenery on land.

Sagres enjoys around 300 days of sunshine per year and the constant breezes coming off the Atlantic take the edge of the heat in mid-summer.

It is around 20 minutes from Lagos and the nearest airport is Faro, 1 hour and 30 minutes away.
