If you have children, the idea of family vacations may not sound relaxing, romantic, or luxurious. One hotel chain in Portugal, however, wants to change all of that. Founded in 2005, Martinhal Family Hotels & Resorts offers a luxury holiday experience and was conceived with families in mind.  Their aim is to offer a luxury holiday experience with high class family-friendly facilities in some of the most prestigious areas in Portugal. Four properties make up the collection: Martinhal Sagres Beach Family Resort, Martinhal Quinta Family Golf Resort, Martinhal Cascais Family Hotel and Martinhal Chiado Family Suites in Lisbon.


The original Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel in Sagres opened in 2010 and is the first resort in the small collection of child-friendly hotels and resorts that the owners of the Martinhal brand are building up.

Martinhal Quinta Family Golf Resort opened in 2015 in the prestigious Quinta do Lago area with its award-winning golf courses, sophisticated restaurants, lake water sports activities, and much more.


Martinhal Cascais Family Hotel, which is located along the coast in the Cascais suburb of Lisbon, features 68 hotel rooms and four hotel suites, as well as 12 exclusive villas. The hotel is uniquely located between two championship golf courses – Quinta da Marinha and Oitavos.

Their newest property, Martinhal Chiado Family Suites is located in Libson’s cultural epicenter. Chiado opened its doors officially on September 9, 2016 as the first elegant city-center family hotel. With 37 luxurious apartments painstakingly designed with families and style in mind, accommodations range from studio to two-bedroom apartments, each featuring a full kitchen and washer/dryer.


An ideal base for families interested in exploring Portugal’s capital city, children interested in history can visit UNESCO World Heritage sites like the Belém Tower, Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, and the famous Oceanário de Lisboa—Europe’s second largest aquarium.

Inside the resort itself, Martinhal has children placed at the forefront of their resort. With a Clubhouse, Kids Club and ‘Pyjama Club’ offering childcare services each night until midnight, parents can enjoy a night on the town with peace of mind knowing their youngster’s are having just as much fun as they are.


Martinhal even has a Baby Concierge service that lets parents pre-book everything from safety gates, to bottle sterilizers, and even diapers. Without a doubt, the hotel chain is setting the bar high for this new genre of luxury-family resorts.
