Spanning the full length of Portugal’s southern coast, the Algarve has established itself as one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. The year-round sunshine, sandy beaches and famous championship golf courses all add to the appeal of this attractive area. Faro is the capital of the Algarve and most holidaymakers arrive through its international airport. Dom Pedro Portobello is situated in the popular resort of Vilamoura, around 25 kilometres to the west of Faro and is easily reached from the airport. Public transport in the Algarve is modern and comprehensive although for those planning to explore the area extensively, car rental can be easily arranged either before arrival in the Algarve.
With over 300 days of sunshine each year, one of the main attractions of the Algarve is undoubtedly the great year-round weather, although the landscape, facilities and sandy beaches also appeal to holidaymakers from across the globe. The region is situated in the south western corner of Europe with the clear waters of the Atlantic lapping the attractive coastline and can be reached from most UK cities in just a couple of hours.
Guests of the Dom Pedro Portobello hotel can enjoy the freedom and flexibility of their own private apartment combined with all the facilities expected from a modern resort.
The outdoor swimming pool is ideal for a relaxing dip and the terrace surrounding it is equipped with sunloungers where guests can enjoy the warm Algarve sun. Guests can also visit the onsite sauna and jacuzzi to really unwind; or for the more active holidaymaker, a tennis court and games room are also available. If you are travelling with children you will appreciate the separate children’s swimming pool and playground, where they can play safely with other young people their own age.
Each of the complex’ one-bedroom serviced apartments offers lovely views either out to sea or across the surrounding area. There is a balcony or terrace attached to each apartment so you will always have a private place from which to enjoy the pleasant Algarve weather. A private bathroom is included in all apartments, as well as a kitchenette with fridge to allow guests the freedom to prepare their own meals whenever it suits them.
