Child friendly hotel, Portugal

About Vidamar Resort Hotel Algarve

What a fabulous five star experience - kids loved, I loved it - spacious rooms, excellent air-con(!), lovely pools, lots of space, consistently good food, easy access to the beach, kids club for little ones - for an 'easy' family holiday on the Algarve, Vidamar is a must. 


The beautiful Vidamar Resort provides a luxurious and restful escape, with wonderful facilities and activities for both kids and parents. Set in a stunning location next to natural beach dunes and the Lagoa dos Salgados nature reserve, yet only a few kilometres away from bustling city life, you can enjoy the best that the Algarve has to offer.

Kids will love spending time at the VidaClub where they can swim, paint, play and explore whilst grown-ups can escape to a little bit of paradise at the adults only MarClub. There is a gorgeous wellness centre on-site with pool, gym, spa areas and treatments, as well as an 18 hole golf course.


The rooms and suites are all spacious, light and offer fabulous views of the Atlantic, the lagoon, the pools or the exotic gardens. Each sleeps up to 4 (2 adults and 2 children up to the age of 11) in either a double bed or twins, plus a spacious sofa-bed that can comfortably take two kids.

All rooms are equipped with LCD televisions, Wi-Fi, Minibar and safe. The en-suite bathrooms are large and bright. Each room has outdoor space with seating to take in the wonderful Algarve sun and beautiful scenery.


Chill out by one of the 3 pools, or stroll along the wooden walkway over the dunes of the nature reserve to Praia dos Salgados. For the energetic you can also hire bikes and take on the 18-hole golf course.  Nature enthusiasts and gardeners will be in their element in the extensive gardens, plus there are grass fields for playing family games.The Osmos Wellness centre offers indoor swimming for all the family, treatment rooms,sauna, jacuzzi, spa rooms, Turkish bath and gym, all wellness facilities are accessible from 16 years old, except the indoor swimming pool which allows children in with supervision.

If you’re planning on using the indoor pool, pack a swimming cap or purchase one from the spa reception.

Spend some time at the Lagoa dos Salgados nature reserve – as one of Portugal's most important wetlands for birdlife you might catch glimpse of a number of waterbirds- including flamingos!

Slide & Splash waterpark is less than half an hour away, and has slides, rides and animal displays, or take to the seas under the expert eye of marine biologists and dolphin watch, kayak or snorkel with WildWatch.  Zoomarine is a favourite with our guests and only 10 mins travel from the hotel.

Experience the hustle and bustle of Albufeira, explore its history and moorish influences on culture and food -it’s not all about nightclubs and bars. And if you can drag yourself further away from the resort it’s well worth exploring the wider region on foot or by bike - there are some great walking and cycle paths for all levels of ability.


There are 5 main restaurants on the resort, each offering delicious gastronomic treats. Choose from sushi, wood fired pizzas, fine dining, or select from a range of options at the Ocean buffet. Make sure you book a table if you want to dine in any of the a la carte restaurants.

On top of this there are several indoor and outdoor bars where you can grab a coffee, cocktail, drinks for the kids or light meal and enjoy the stunning landscapes that surround the resort.

Please note that in some of the A La care restaurants there is a minimum age of 8 years.
