Vila Vita Parc is a family friendly resort in Portugal’s Algarve.
Accommodation comes in a variety of formats, from deluxe rooms to private villas which have their own pools. Each room has either a kin size or two twin beds with goose down pillows and duvets - hypoallergenic is available on request, a large sitting area which comes with a sofa bed, and a private terrace or garden overlooking the verdant grounds. There is also twice daily housekeeping - ideal for helping keep the chaos small people leave in their wake in check. Larger suites have walk in dressing rooms, separate living rooms and large indoor and al-fresco dining areas, which can seat up to six people. There are also wine fridges and enormous TVs in both bedrooms and living rooms. Every room and suite also comes with a sound system.
The resorts five private villas sleep between four and twelve guests, offering guests the perks and amenities of staying in a fully staffed resort and the seclusion and privacy of a private villa. Each villa has its own pool and a private butler. Each villa is just a short stroll or golf buggy ride away from the beach, spa, and all of the other facilities at the resort.
Vila Vita Parc has dedicated on site kid's clubs, catering for children from six months onwards, where their fully qualified staff will keep children entertained with a wide variety of fun and educational activities - from painting to sports and (almost) everything in between. They'll even help to wear children out by letting them loose on the swing, trampolines, and slides of the adventure playground. Teenagers can have surfing lessons on the beach, go on day trips to the water park and join in on adrenaline fuelled jeep excursions across the surrounding countryside. Parents can take advantage of the peace and quiet to enjoy the tranquillity of the spa, play a few rounds of golf on the driving range, Pitch & Putt practice course, or one any one of the Algarve's fabled fairways, or perhaps indulge in a few poolside cocktails by the adults only pool.
Flavours at Vila Vita's six bars and ten restaurants span the globe, from the sun soaked Mediterranean to Japanese dishes - there is something on offer for even the pickiest of palettes. For guests staying in the villas, the hotel can arrange in-villa cooking and dining experiences, along with private dinner parties.
