“Martinhal is Magic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Just returned from a fantastic week staying at Villa (7)38 in Martinhal. We had been down to Sagres before Martinhal was developed and loved the place - the West of Ireland with heat and we had always planned to go back to Martinhal which was just being developed at the time. Firstly, the Villa was a privately owned villa that can be booked through the hotel and entitles you to all the facilities of the hotel. It was in a prime location just overlooking the beach but with a sheltered deck area which means that you were not exposed to the winds that most reviewers mention but which were surprisingly absent during our stay. I am loath to mention it as it may drive up the price for when we return next year. During our week at the end of June, it was clear that most of the guests were parents of pre-schoolers and the resort is made for this demographic. The kids clubs, the kids and baby meals in the restaurants, the pools and play areas, etc are all hugely suited to younger kids and their parents. In all restaurants, a table with a baby chair in situ is the default setting. Where does this leave empty nesters or those with older kids? Stll in a very nice place. Going back to the West of Ireland analogy, Sagres is a magical place which does not have the "packaged" feeling of other Algarve resorts. The beaches are fantastic and the Watersports offering at Martinhal is first class for the older ones as is the body surfing (tip - don't be tempted to paddle with your sunglasses on as their are big waves lurking). There is no real heart to the town of Sagres but with Tripadvisor as your friend, it will be possible to find some first class restaurants - we loved Mums and trips to Cape Vincent are worthwhile. The beautiful town of Lago is about 20 minutes away, golf at Parque de Floresta is about 10 minutes away and Slide and Splash is about 45 minutes away.

Room Tip: Try Villa (7)38.

We spent 11 nights in an Ocean View house in June. I had extremely high expectations having read they had 'thought of everything'. We have two girls age 3 and 5 and no longer need much baby paraphernalia so we probably weren't quite as impressed as we might have been had we travelled with younger children. Having said that, the accommodation was excellent and we would go back. The shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and moisturiser were lovely - quite a herby scent so unisex, but I think they were irritating for children's sensitive skin so I used our usual chidren's products. It would have been useful to have a handheld shower in the bath to make it easier to rinse children's hair. The bedrooms had blackout blinds although light comes in at the sides. I liked that the towels and sheets were only changed every 3 days unless you requested otherwise as I don't like all the wastage in hotels. Also, we didn't change our beach towels very often as we were able to dry them easily in the house. It was great having a washing machine/dryer and airer. Dishwasher tablets were provided every day, as well as washing up liquid and cleaning products. The Intermarche in Sagres is good for stocking up - gorgeous strawberries and melons, and Birds Eye fishfingers! The shop on site is very handy for essentials and I didn't have a problem with the prices as it is a small shop - ice creams were cheap there.
It was very windy for our first few days, and also cold whenever the sun went behind a cloud. However, after a final extremely windy day, the rest of our holiday was hot and sunny with barely a breeze. I would not have enjoyed my holiday had it been windy for the whole time. On our first day we ate lunch in As Dunas and dinner in Os Gambozinos, and the following day had breakfast in O Terraco. Lunch and dinner were average quality food and poor service. Staff seemed inexperienced and unprofessional. There is a playground near As Dunas which was great for our 5 year old, but our 3 year old needed more supervision so we were up and down to the sandy playground throughout lunch. We did not go back there. We ate one more meal at Gambozinos and were well looked after as we had not been happy the first time. Breakfast was lovely but at 70E for a family with young children we only returned once - on our daughter's birthday, when they presented her with a pancake with candles and all the serving staff gathered to sing happy birthday. They also brought her a cake and a T-shirt later in the day whihc was a very nice touch. Our girls enjoyed colouring and playing in the area set aside for entertaining children with staff to look after them. They attended the kids club for a few sessions and mostly enjoyed it. Our eldest was a bit bored in the Raposinhos Club as it is for 2-4 year olds and she was almost 5. She was sometimes able to move into the Fox Club which she enjoyed more. They attended one sunset club and loved it. A minimum of 3 children are needed for the sunset club and this was the only night of our stay when another child was booked in - probably because most people had young toddlers and babies who would be asleep at this time. The circus entertainment in the village square was really good fun, for adults and children alike. The bouncy castles were a bit too 'rough and tumble' for my two who kept coming off in tears. It would have been helpful to have a daily page on the Martinhal web-guide which is updated with all the daily activities each day as it wasn't easy to find out what was going on every day. Weather forecast could be included.
I think all the pools are heated to a comfortable temperature. I would have liked more toys/slides (for the kids) but I assume others don't like this otherwise I'm sure they would have them. Perhaps they are tacky...
The beach was lovely and we found some others that we really liked nearby - Tonal near the fort in Sagres (lovely toasted sandwiches in the little beach bar), Zavial which has a lovely restaurant (closed Mondays I think), and Amado - this was my least favourite but was by far the busiest and popular with surfers. If it's windy, it's worth trying to find a sheltered beach. There are two beach restaurants on Martinhal beach, we preferred the one furthest from the hotel - staff were lovely.
We enjoyed a couple of meals out in Sagres - Villa Velha was lovely, and they were good with children. Mum's was great food but I wouldn't go again with children.
I am sure we will visit the area again although I'd be worried about the wind, and as we would probably approach it as a self catering holiday in future we would look at alternative accommodation possibilities - having said that there's a good chance we will return to Martinhal.

Thank you for taking the time to share your detail impressions on your most recent stay with us.
We are very glad to know how much you enjoyed the luxury and comfort of our Ocean Houses as well as all our superb facilities, programs and activities for all ages!

We regret that the service provided in our Restaurants has not met your expectations.Please note that your comments and impressions have been conveyed to our F&B Management Team. Nevertheless we apologize for any inconveniences experienced which have fallen short of the outstanding hospitality we always strive for and that certainly bares no resemblance to our usual standards.

We are delighted to hear that your daughter enjoyed spending her birthday with us and we were able to make it a special occasion.

With regards to the wind, please kindly note that we have done our best to build all our facilities in sheltered areas but, as you may understand there is only so much we can do for sheltering without compromising aesthetics and our clients safety. However, when planning your return to Martinhal, kindly note that the windiest period is between June-August.
By reading your comments regarding the water temperature in our swimming pools, please note that all our swimming pools are heated at an average temperature of 29ºC - including the pools for the little ones. Our Village pool has a children’s slide and floats to keep the children happy along with a play area with swings and helicopter outside.

We will continue to do our upmost to ensure that you and your family have plenty of reasons to love Martinhal and make us your first choice - many surprises already being prepared for next year.
We look forward to welcoming you all again very soon to Martinhal not only to experience all we have on offer but also to witness and enjoy our continued positive progress.

We stayed at Martinhal for 10 days in June. Our daughter is 2 years old and I am pregnant so we wanted a stress free relaxing holiday. We booked the resort through baby friendly boltholes they were very efficient and we would recommend them. Although we only booked a room in the hotel We were lucky enough to get upgraded to an Ocean House. The hotel was being used for a wedding and so we were asked to stay in a house for the duration of our stay. The house was spacious and clean . The location was amazing as we were only a two minute stroll to the restaurant for breakfast , the pool and the village square. There was so much to entertain our toddler and we loved the fact that she could enjoy herself playing whilst we could enjoy our meals. My only issues are as others have mentioned :
1) the wind is relentless . For the entire 10 days of our stay we had to endure fierce winds , so we spent much of the time being blasted by sand grains on the beach or chasing sunhats down the road (i recommend taking a childrens hat which ties under the chin ! ) . After the sun went down it was also very cold so please take warm clothing if you plan to stay out after 7 pm .
2)We also were surprised to see most of the restaurants empty after 7 pm , so don't expect to see any night time entertainment.
3) You have to pay for the beach sun loungers ....
4) There are no bath robes outside of the hotel room so take your own if you are staying in the houses
Despite all of this we would stay at Martinhal again but maybe not in June as the weather wasn't great .....

Room Tip: Ocean house are close to all of the amenities

Thank you for your great review! Your comments are extremely valuable to us and they motivate us to continue to improve and to create lifetime memories to all our valued Clients.
On your note regarding the wind (normally more common in June – August), kindly note that we have done our best to build pools in sheltered areas. Nevertheless, we are constantly looking at ways to improve.The sunbed operation is a beach concession whereby we have a limited space on the beach granted by the authorities for the summer months only. As the space and numbers of sunbeds and umbrellas are limited, a fee is the only way a guest can guarantee a booking or reserving his/her private and luxurious space. If we give this space for free for all guests of Martinhal, not all guests will get to enjoy this limited space given that some guests will reserve beds/ loungers for the whole day with towels/ books, and others will not get to use this very precious facility. Compared to many other beach concessions in Portugal, Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel really offers a better quality of concession.
We hope you choose to give us another opportunity again soon and find your experience very much improved.

Martinhal, as so many other reviewers have said, is a fantastic place for a holiday with young children with excellent attention to detail with regards the children and very good, modern well designed accommodation.

The rooms / villas are excellently thought out and specced to a very good level. The resort has only been open for about three years, so the decor is modern and all the equipment up to date. Cleaners come everyday. Our (Pinewood 2-bed villa) also had a decent size pool which is nice and warm. The pool is child-proofed and a stair gate was fitted without us even asking.

Each restaurant in the resort has some sort of assisted Childcare or activities, from the sandpit / trampoline at Dunas to the Little Tikes style houses at Gambozinos. The village square also lays on a circus act a couple of nights a week and a bouncy castle another couple of nights. This works really well, as the children can have a bit of a play while they wait for their food and the adults have a chat and a drink. The food is not amazing. The fish at Dunas was good, but Gambozinos is sub-Pizza Express in terms of quality but a lot more expensive.

The buffet breakfast at Terraco is pricey at €23 for adults, but really good. You probably won't need lunch afterwards.

We tried both the beach places (independent of resort) and Nortadas was good value, very friendly to the children, and in a lovely location on the beach. Recommended for a night or two.

Others mention it, but Martinhal is REALLY WINDY. We were there for 10 days and it was windy every day apart from the last one. It's not like some places where you get a sea breeze it is 24/7 windy, frequently 20 knots plus I would say. The trees at the end of our garden all lean one way because of the wind.... In some ways it is quite nice because it gives you a breeze, but it can make it feel fairly cold even if the thermometer is in the low 20s C. It is pretty hard to escape - but the best place to do so can actually be the beach which has lovely sand - great for sandcastles.

Overall, as a family holiday for young (under 4) would rate Martinhal highly. It is comfortable, well organized and low stress, but it does lack soul. Personally, in a couple of years time, when children are a bit easier, I look forward to a holiday with a bit more variety and character.

Few tips to avoid some expensive purchases while you are out there (the Mercado is uber expensive for some things):

1. Take dishwasher and washing machine tablets with you
2. If you have a Nespresso machine, the rooms have them, take your own capsules. In the mercado they are €7.50 for 10 capsules!
3. You can stock up on essentials at the intermarche in Sagres. It is pretty well os rocked and a lot cheaper than the Mercado. The resort runs a shuttle service into Sagres and stops here en route.
4. DVD player rental is expensive - €10 a day. If you have a portable, take it and cables with you (or negotiate!)

I have never bothered to write a review before but I feel I can add some new information about staying at Martinhal, my wife and I ,3 children have just returned from a 9 night stay in a 3 bed garden villa situated opposite the Bay Houses. On arrival we asked to view a Bay House as they looked very impressive but on inspection we quickly realised that the Garden Villa layout is better suited to family life including a small private garden. The accommodation is first class and very well equipped. The main entrance has a modern key card entry system, unfortunately the main door is locked by pressing a button and unlocked by simply pressing down on the handle which my three year old boy worked out and could let himself out at any time, the door needs an additional lock which is out of reach of children. A similar problem exists with three boxes just inside the front door the main fuse box and two telecom boxes these are all in easy reach of children I had to use a hair clip to secure one box, these boxes need secure locks on them as in their current state are very unsafe.

Moving outside all of the path ways have been constructed with a very fancy looking crazy paving which has very shape edges, this is clearly not suitable for young children as most children have a tendency to run and fall over or just trip, this could easily lead to a holiday ruining injury. I have attached several photos on my daily route to the main square showing areas where the paving has become loose manly around drain covers. The management need to sort these asap.

The garden villas are built around a garden with a pool in the middle, we assumed this would be for children with short grass for them to play on. We were wrong, the garden is wild (photos attached) the pool has an infinity feature and looks very pretty but is not suitable for children and during our stay we only noticed it being used once, it’s very exposed and therefore very windy. I would like to know why the family friendly villas have been set out in this way?

Getting to the beach took approx. 20 minutes as well as negotiating the previously mentioned path ways there are 35 steps down to the reception and then another 50 steps to the pool and restaurants then another 10 steps to the beach . The Ocean view villas are in the most convenient position but not as family friendly as the Garden villas.

Now the WIND!!! We had read previous posts about the wind and decided how could it be that windy in the summer in Portugal? We spoke with several families who were holidaying for the second time and did not mind the wind, personally even if all of the above was changed I would never go back to Martinhal because of the wind, during our stay the wind was a constant 25-30knts with gusts 40knts night and day that’s 24/7, it felt like being in Cornwall in the Autumn. I did a little research and found out the North wind is a constant feature in Sagre’s I have attached photos of some trees which clearly show the effect of a constant wind. The wind rendered the beautiful unspoilt beach useless as the wind wipes up the sand either into your eyes or stinging your legs. Martinhal supply plenty of beach towels, you will need one when you get out of a swimming pool as the wind chill on a wet body is ridiculous, you will see plenty of guests hiding under there towels rather than laying on them. The pool by the beach is very windy so we many went to the pool near to the main square as it has an indoor section and this was the only place we could get a rest bite from the dam wind. To find out yourself how it will feel get out of your bath/shower and go outside when it’s windy and see how much fun you have. A BBQ is almost impossible unless you light it in the villa in the open fire place then transfer it once it gets going, not a very safe idea but it worked.

For my wife and I the biggest disappointment was the food, we love our food and the three restaurants on offer left us wanting more. The Os Gambozinos was awful and overpriced serving most things with reheated chips, I noticed monk fish with mash for 22 euros, not a sardine in site, silly me I thought I had gone to Portugal! The only time I saw sardines was at the As Dunas Rest For 18 euro. The As Dunas was the best restaurant but most tables had a high chair with child which was a waste for us having paid for a baby sitter. The O Terraco is sterile with no atmosphere the menu does not reflect the region and very pricey.

May I suggest turning the empty beach hut into a BBQ area and sell fresh local fish? Perhaps play some music and try and create some fun and atmosphere.

We found Martinhal to be a very high standard but soul-less with little atmosphere and very few guests having fun, perhaps the constant wind has that effect? The staff are all very friendly and helpful and have obviously been trained well but tend to be a little wooden.

In summary fantastic 5 star accommodation, but with the wind and poor food I would recommend going along the coast where its warmer has better food choice and more fun. Martinhal has been built in an unspoilt location which is totally isolated, very little to do a hire car is a must. Sagre’s port is for commercial purposes and not tourists.

Thank you for sharing your impressions on your recent stay with us.

At Martinhal we do take every aspect seriously and we also strongly believe that small details do make a difference to properly enjoy a wonderful family holiday.
We are very glad to know how much you enjoyed the luxury and comfort of our Garden Houses. On your note regarding the central part of our Garden View Houses, kindly note that the initial concept was to bring into it the same flora species as found in our surrounding Natural Park.

We have also registered your comments towards our walking paths in the resort, please note that we have forwarded them to our Engineering team who will try to make the necessary improvements.

We regret not knowing earlier that you would have liked to have child-proof locks on the main door as our Housekeeping and Maintenance Teams do have them available upon request. These and many more items are available from our extensive Baby Concierge List specially created to ensure a totally stress-free holiday both for parents as well as their children.

We do appreciate your comments regarding the wind, nevertheless just wanted to say that we have no secrets about the weather in our unique and privileged location. Also whilst July/August are regarded as the windier months in Sagres, the wind stops in September - opening a fantastic Indian Summer all the way into November!

Please also note that we have done our best to build pools in sheltered areas. There is only so much we can do for sheltering without compromising aesthetics and our clients safety, besides, all our swimming pools are heated at an average temperature of 29ºC - including the pools for the little ones.

We regret that our restaurants did not meet your expectations. Please note that your impressions have been conveyed to our F&B Team and Senior Management.

We would just like to take this opportunity to inform that as standard practice, we do not encourage our clients to have barbeques for safety reasons. As you may understand we are surrounded by a Natural Park therefore, the sensitivity of our fire alarms and smoke detectors is high. However we do have electrical grills available to our clients upon request/ availability.We regret if this information was not made available to you during your stay.

We hope you choose to give us another opportunity and find your experience very much improved.

Stayed here for a week for a week with our 18-month-old. Another reviewer said this place had succeeded in combining family-friendly and five star - and I agree - but boy, you will pay the price! We had a partial sea view beach room which was perfect - amazing view, cleaned twice daily, spacious, safe, free wifi, Sky TV (including Baby TV channel - Godsend!!!) so no complaints there. The facilities are also great - pools are clean and safe with lots of sun beds available and an efficient bar - and all the attention to detail is with children in mind - the free ice pops in the afternoon, the beanbags, the play areas, the childminders in the restaurants (genius idea!), the availability of highchairs, the staff seeming to love kids, etc, etc. The resort as a whole is very easy on the eye and all the staff are friendly and efficient. The buffet breakfast is also excellent. However, the reason I haven't given this five stars is because of the prices - €17 for a club sandwich, €29 for 2 hours in the crèche, €20 for a simple pasta supper, €3.70 for an Ella's Kitchen pouch (99p in Waitrose at home!!), the extortionate sun lounger prices, etc, etc. You can of course get around this....buying supplies at the local supermarket, not using the sun loungers, choosing you dinner frugally, etc, but you do feel somewhat like you are being exploited a bit...is it the price you pay for keeping your children entertained? Perhaps. But I wouldn't come here if I had more than one demanding child - a weeks' stay could end up costing you a small fortune!
