This white washed cliff side hotel was first constructed in the 1960s, and has since been spruced up to quite the chic beachside oasis, and is ideal for anything from a relaxing weekend away to a family holiday.

Harriet, Victoria and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 144 rooms and suites, all contemporary in design with light minimalist tones, with views over the sea and the Baleeira harbour.

The hotel's restaurant serves a range of local dishes and delicacies as well as international cuisine. Meals are complemented by the ocean views and great Portuguese wines. The bar is also a great spot to venture to pre or post dinner.

To surf or not to surf? That really is the question. With its own surf centre, pro or novice can enjoy a break on the Sagres coastline. Additional activities include bike riding, tours of the local town (a fresh seafood lunch is a must), jeep trips, golfing and a whole range of additional water sports.

For a slower pace of life Memmo also has a particularly good swimming pool, where guests can also soak up the Algarvean rays. There is also an indoor heated pool, sauna and Turkish bath in the hotel's spa, along with a range of beauty treatments and massages.

Why we love it

Aldeia da Pedralva

Aldeia da Pedralva

Just a few short years ago Pedralva was a ramshackle village full of derelict houses and one small pizzeria catering to the local surfing community. Then in 2008 along came Antonio Ferreira, an Algarvean advertising exec looking to develop a property in this beautiful unspoilt corner of the Algarve, the Natural Park of Costa Vicentina.
