Nestled within spacious landscaped grounds overlooking the shoreline of Salgados beach, Vidamar Resort Algarve sits beside a nature reserve and is dotted with palms and greenery. Making the most of this privileged spot on the Algarve, the resort lies within easy reach of towns such as Albufeira and Portimão but also boasts the best of nature and the sea on your doorstep. The international airport at Faro is only about a 45-minute drive away.
Immaculately designed with a sleek, Eastern aesthetic, the Atlantic Health Club & Spa has an indoor pool with massage waterfalls, a well-equipped gym and outdoor classes from pilates to meditation. Treatment rooms offer massages, facial, body and nail pampering and there are also facilities such as a sauna and steam bath. Be sure to ask about their spa packages or complimentary services with upgraded room types.
The 18-hole Salgados Golf Course is located near Albufeira, within a protected natural wildlife reserve. With a unique setting and stunning sea views, it features a driving range, putting green, clubhouse and golf shop for the use of Vidamar Algarve guests.
Set back from the beach dunes, the rooms and suites here will allow you to throw open the windows, hear the sea and feel the cool breeze. Views from your accommodation range from relaxing landscapes of the verdant grounds to panoramic Atlantic vistas. All of the resort’s rooms and suites are decorated with fresh colours, with floor-to-ceiling windows, walk-in rainforest showers, large balconies, and HD TVs. Complimentary wi-fi comes as standard, as do a selection of drinks from the mini-bar.
Kids are well catered for here, with supervised play areas and their own special heated pool for an afternoon dip. They’ll also love trips nearby to the Aquashow Water Park, or quad biking, suitable for teenagers. Watersports such as scuba-diving and kite-surfing are all available in the area and the coast is also popular for dolphin watching excursions and bird watching around the lagoon. With 200km of coast, the Algarve’s beaches are its biggest draw – not to mention its abundance of golf courses – but venture inland for hiking trails that take you past the clifftops to the orchards and granite rocky climbs of the Barrocal countryside.
Four restaurants within the resort offer an incredible array of cuisines. At Aji Oriental Flavours, sample your favourite Japanese raw classics; or at Sunset Restaurant & Bar, enjoy fresh seafood with Portuguese cuisine to the fore. The latter is set within a palm garden and offers specialities of the Algarve and further afield, from charcoal-grilled fish and meat to cataplana and feijoada served in the pot. At Ocean Restaurant, the spacious outdoor terrace is perfect for an evening buffet, while Italian passion is stirred at Mamma Mia, which offers comforting homemade pastas and wood-fired pizzas, with an alfresco garden terrace. Guests may dine in all 4 restaurants with the half-board dining option.
