Thanks to its size, with nearly 400 rooms spread across 11 different categories from deluxe guestrooms all the way up to decadent Presidential Suites, The Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Algarve Resort comfortably doubles up as a family-friendly hotel and luxury couples retreat in one. For example, if seeking lazy days of not doing much at all while you’re away, the stylish Purobeach Club is the place to be, with its adults-only pool and cocktail bar, sun loungers and live DJ music to match. Then there’s the spa and gym, itself home to a dozen private treatment rooms, an indoor pool, Jacuzzi and countless relaxation therapies, not to mention three lounge and poolside bars and the hotel’s own golf course, plus a specific concierge advising on the best places to play.
However, families and groups will be just as well looked after, thanks to a huge child-friendly swimming pool and surrounding gardens, a kids’ club, playroom and playground – while watersports can be enjoyed by everybody! You won’t be going hungry either, with Pepper’s Steakhouse providing a suitably romantic spot for a candlelit dinner, overlooking the marina, or handmade pizzas and pasta at Oregan. Though, for just about every other type of internationally-inspired cuisine, head to the Chilli Buffet Restaurant and marvel at the array of hot dishes and kaleidoscopic salads; a real foodies delight. At the end of each Algarve evening, your room or suite at Tivoli Marina Vilamoura will be decidedly modern and well-equipped too, with a private balcony and huge sliding windows there to ensure the perfect sea or marina view when the sun comes back up.
