    Our opinion

    A state-of-the-art modern resort with abundant facilities.

    Hotel description

    The Conrad Algarve, in the naturally picturesque area of Quinta do Lago, prides itself on being the most current and up-to-date five star resort in the area. From your first view of the grand driveway, lined with fountains, two long decorative pools, and palm trees, you will gain a sense of the opulent luxury offered here. Appealing to both couples and families, the Conrad Algarve has a diverse, yet sophisticated, array of activities to offers; including a spa, a stunning central infinity pool lined with shaded sun loungers, tennis courts, kids’ clubs, and a concierge on-hand to organise excursions such as wine-tasting tours and bird-watching trips. Conrad Spa has something of an ethereal feel, with individual canopied treatment rooms each draped with white linen on the very edge of a candlelit pool. Services include Aromatherapy, access to an ice fountain, and specialised manicure and hair treatments. Dining experiences at Conrad Algarve are just as exclusive. Enjoy Mediterranean and Scandinavian food prepared by Michelin-starred chef Heinz Beck at Gusto. Become better acquainted with the area you are staying in with the modern Portuguese food served at Louro, either in the dining room or under the outdoor pergola. Lago Lounge is a relaxing space that offers Sri Lankan teas, cocktails, champagne, and light patisserie snacks, with the additions of a homely warm feel and a large terrace. Beside the pool, enjoy cocktails, a BBQ, and seafood fresh from the aquarium at Dado and Dado Seafood, or fresh fruit and drink at Sereno. After dinner and a night cap or final dip in the pool, retire to your fresh, contemporary room. Decorated in a blend of soothing neutral colours and modern floral designs, these spaces are both extremely comfortable and attractive. The patterns woven into the rugs and curtains, carved into the edges of the shelves, and painted onto the feature walls add depth beside the block colour leather headboards and vast chaise longue. All rooms have spacious balconies with excellent views and comfortable furnishings. Many options are available for those travelling with children. Spend a week or two at the Conrad Algarve to ensure you have time to utilise all of the resort’s facilities as well as time to explore the rest of the Algarve.
