    Our opinion

    A fantastic new family resort on the southern coast of Portugal in greater Lisbon.

    Hotel description

    Opening in March 2016, Martinhal Cascais Family Resort is located in Cascais, on the outskirts of Greater Lisbon and lies around 10 minutes’ drive from the golden sand Guincho Beach. Martinhal already has a fantastic reputation for family holidays and this latest resort, found between two beautiful golf courses, promises luxurious accommodation and fantastic family facilities. Accommodation at the Martinhal Cascais is composed of 82 rooms, suites and villas found throughout the resort. The style of accommodation is contemporary with neutral colours giving a crisp and sophisticated edge, enhanced by furniture in modern design with cool, white walls. Despite its sleek appearance, the accommodation is geared towards making families happy and comfortable with every room type accommodating families of three or more with a combination of twin beds, sofa and bunkbeds to accommodate children. Martinhal Cascais runs children’s clubs in its Clubhouse, a dedicated and expansive space designed specifically for children. Infants from 6 months to teenagers are welcome at the children’s clubs and all age groups benefit from a range of fun activities, games and sports under supervised care. For parents, the Finisterra Spa offers a range of treatments and relaxing facilities with a sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. Relax by the three outdoor swimming pools, one with a children’s pool or enjoy light snacks in the resort’s M-Bar where there is an outdoor play area for children with a trampoline, sandpit and wendy-house fashioned out of a red VW Campervan. Enjoy coastal walks and golf, or take the short journey to the Guincho Beach to relax in the sun. At around 30 minutes’ drive to the centre of Lisbon, the hotel’s location in Greater Lisbon combines beaches and beautiful landscape with the culture, museums, theatres and history of central Lisbon.
