Overview

VidaMar Resort Hotel Algarve offers direct access to Salgados Beach and views of the Atlantic Ocean. This relaxed resort is ideal for adults seeking an escape – the MarClub has an adult-only heated pool, Bali beds and an outdoor massage area and the impressive Osmos Wellness Centre offers a broad selection of treatments. Families are well catered for too, with a kids’ pool, club and dedicated restaurant menus.

The resort enjoys a privileged location, in front of the beach and beside vast green spaces. Salgados Beach is one of southern Portugal’s largest sandy beaches and is accessible via a wooden walkway over the sand dunes, approximately a two-minute stroll away. Neighbouring Salgados Lagoon nature reserve offers a whopping 37 miles of wetlands, which are home to a wide range of birds. Salgados Golf Course is also just behind the resort, giving additional views of the open green spaces. Bustling Albufeira is just over six miles away and Faro Airport is 32 miles away.

Rooms feature colour schemes inspired by their surroundings – blue rugs brighten sandy-coloured walls and furnishings. Prestige rooms offer a wide choice of views. Superior rooms provide ocean views, while Club rooms also include a welcome drink on arrival, personalised check-in, access to the spa circuits (for guests aged 16 and over) and daily access to the MarClub with a Bali bed for two (for guests aged 16 and over, must be booked 24 hours in advance, subject to availability), among other benefits.

Other facilities

The resort has three outdoor saltwater pools – a huge 70-metre pool, next to a children’s pool, surrounded by a vast sun deck, and another located amongst the palm trees. Pool towels are available with a deposit, so you can free up space in your suitcase. Salgados Beach is accessible through a pathway over the sand dunes, providing extra opportunity to unwind under the sun. To take your relaxation one step further, visit the sleek Osmos Wellness Centre where the Water Circuit includes a whirlpool, sauna, steam bath, ice fountain, Turkish bath, cold bucket showers and a relaxation area. Spa options include massages, body treatments and wraps, facials, manicures and pedicures. It’s also home to an indoor pool (swimming caps are required). There’s a fitness centre too, open 24-hours a day, equipped with a treadmill, elliptical machine, spinning bikes and weights.

Adults seeking an escape can join the MarClub, overlooking the beach, with sunset views. It has an outdoor heated pool (pool towels provided), massage area and bar service for food and drinks. Hire of a Bali bed or sunlounger is mandatory at the club – prices vary depending on location, and fees are deductible from food and drink purchased at the Tiki Bar on the same day. Reservations with customer services are required and are subject to availability – beds or sunloungers can be reserved for the duration of your stay. The MarClub is open from 10:00 to 19:30, June to September, subject to change.

Additional family friendly facilities include the VIDA Club, where children aged 3 to 11 can enjoy supervised activities, a reading area and a game room with arcade machines. There’s even a spa area offering children’s manicures and pedicures. A nursey is also available for children from six months to two years old. 

Dining information

The resort’s main dining venue, Ocean Restaurant, serves breakfast and dinner. In the mornings, choose from a varied buffet, as well as hot eggs, omelettes and pancakes cooked to order. In the evenings, themed menus combine Portuguese flavours with international favourites. During the day, tuck into relaxed poolside eats at Sunset Terrace – ask the waiters for the chargrilled meat or fish of the day. Open Friday to Sunday for dinner, Primadonna serves Italian-inspired cuisine on an outdoor terrace. A choice of freshly baked pizzas and pasta dishes are offered – some featuring local Portuguese cheeses – as is a kids’ menu. Olivio Meat and Wine serves a selection of aged beef alongside Mediterranean cuisine and tempting wines. Please note, some restaurants may not operate at the same time.  

Three bars include the chic lobby bar, a poolside bar and the Tiki Bar, serving cocktails and light bites in a Polynesian-inspired setting. There’s also a Nespresso Café serving freshly brewed coffees.

The half board package includes breakfast and dinner in the Ocean buffet restaurant. Dinner can't be exchanged for lunch and drinks are not included.
