Excellent place to stay, perfect comfort and service. We can't imagine a better place to be. Nice design, good restaurants, comfortable room and much to do for kids. Nice Portuguese wines and food. The Spa was relaxing.
Second time in the spa, both times with Andreia who has a spectacular technique when it comes to deeply massaging your body. I felt in heaven and the feeling endured... plus, Voya products are soooo pleasurable, your skin feels pampered and pretty and nourished. Close to Paradise.
Everything in this hotel is stylish and spacious: the entrance, the bar, the restaurant, the meeting rooms and the rooms. The rooms have a spacious bedroom, bathroom with shower and bath and terrace. The surroundings are beautiful as well.
I am happy to have discovered the new SPA of Martinhal with its interesting offers and very friendly atmosphere. They even provide private Yoga lessons with a very experienced and good teacher called Andreia. I appreciate the tailor-made programs and special attention!
Very good hotel for families to go with small kids. Very secure, friendly staff from the reception to the kids staff. Will return for sure. The food is also nice and with 2 restaurants there is plenty to choose from. SPA and all facilities are good.
We just had 2 days here, after a New Year trip to Lisbon and it was the perfect ending to our holiday. The hotel staff were so lovely and helpful. We chatted with everyone and they all seem happy to work there - it's a friendly place that suits families perfectly. The kids club staff were amazing - on duty at all hours in the little play rooms where you eat breakfast and have dinner, playing with the children and suggesting activities to keep them busy, so parents can have a minute to themselves. Location is stunning, hotel was immaculate, food was delicious, room clean and so big. My youngest son wanted to live there! The outside playground for the children is perfect for energetic legs.. Would love to come back when it was the proper season so you could use all the outside swimming pool areas. The inside pool was great fun though and the Spa massage I had was the best! It's a hidden gem of a place.. We were really happy, just wished we stayed longer. Definitely would return if possible.
There are two things great about the hotel. Well, actually there is three. 1 (One) is the fact that you can take your kids along (as you may normally do) but in this case there is someone to take care of them for you while you enjoy a bike ride, or a spa massage or your meal. 2 (Second) its the mix of location (in the middle of a pine forest, horsetrack, 1 km away from the beach and restaurants) plus design (very friendly, with natural lighting and beattiful outside arrangements). 3 (Third) is the fact that kids have a club of their own (where they can jump, play, paint, slide, run, etc) with adult supervision. I found a 4 (fourth) one: service is nor fancy, nor too exquisite, it is just straight, simple and friendly with staff that (you'll quickly gather) do their best so that your family can have a great stay.
In September 2016 I booked a villa and family room at this hotel for a week 9-16 April 2017. A €3456 deposit was taken. On Tuesday 3 January I was informed by email that my booking was not going to be honoured and that I would have to choose a different hotel. This family holiday/reunion of 6 adults and two children was booked to celebrate my 70th birthday, my son's 40th birthday. Flights have been booked from US and travel arrangements across Europe have been made by various family members. The hotel quoted 'operational reasons' for the cancellation but when challenged, they admitted that they had accepted a group booking. Clearly this hotel has no sense of service, care about its reputation, or what is acceptable business practice.
It's hard to be kid friendly in a forced way. That's what we realize when we see all the very sponatneous reactions from people working at this Martinhal hotel. Everybody is genuinely interested in your and your kids well being. It is an axception to feel welcome with loads of kids. So we really appreciated the warm atmosphere created by all the personnel and the general approach towards children. We will recommend this place to our friends for sure.
The moment you arrive at the airport is when your holiday feeling truly starts: a private chauffeur to pick you up in a brand new van WITH tv screen so the kids can watch a movie. During our stay we felt so spoiled: great entertainment for the kids so we could enjoy breakfast and dinner, staff members organising (half) day trips for us, a brand new gorgeous luxurious villa, beautiful spa area with fun for everyone.... Most of all we loved the friendliness and thoughtfulness of the complete Martinhal staff who where always willing to lend a helping hand whenever, wherever. Martinhal felt like home away from home! In Kids Friendly Hotels you are sure that the kids are having a great time, but at this Family Friendly Hotel you can be sure that also grown ups are not forgotten. We would LOVE to come back soon or visit one of the other Martinhal resorts and hotels.
