Atismar May

Hi everyone,

I've just booked a 10 day stay at the Atismar, going in early May.

I will be travelling with my hubby and our daughter, who will be 3 (closer to 4).

I was just wondering if any of you could recommend any activities that we could do as a family. I've already thought about the water park and thought a couple of days on the beach would be enough.

We are not really a family to sit around and lay in the sun, we are quite active. In previous years we have been scuba diving and quad biking but this will obviously not be suitable for my litlle one. This will very much be a family holiday and I do not plan to leave her in any kids clubs etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated!! Thanks

sorry to be a bit gloomy but there is nothing in the immediate vicinity except beach the hotel has no entertainment at all and gets very very poor reviews for food/drink offering, however check with water parks as some do not open till June,Zoomarine would be a fantastic day out for you and will be open at that time of year and there are also boat trips leaving Villamoura marina that you might enjoy, weather has not settled into summer pattern at that time of year so be prepared for some not so nice days, it will still be warm but maybe not wall to wall sunshine but ok for getting ouand about

Ok thank you for your help, we are prepared to be out for a full day so dont mind going on buses etc. We will definately try the zoomarine as my little girl loves animals.

I read the reviews on the hotel before booking so i fully expect there to be no entertainment in the night etc. We just wanted something cheap and cheerful for a quick break. :)

The bus station is only a 7 min. walk from the hotel.

In May Quarteira will be lively enough to enjoy yourselves at night.
