Carvoeiro is a little seaside town in the Algarve, just a short 2-hour flight from the UK. We visited in July and found the local square to be bustling but not overcrowded in the balmy evenings. Live performances on the centre stage serenade you as eat or enjoy watching the sunset, and bouncy castles and balloon makers entertain the children.
The Monte Santo Resort has a colourful and well equipped kids playground, indoor swimming pool as well as the main pool, baby pool and smaller individual townhouse pools.
Our fully air-conditioned townhouse at was very clean and spacious with stair gates on both floors, a cot and an IKEA high-chair. You can order a whole host of items online prior to your stay, including extra bottles and teats, bottle warmers, crayons, colouring books, baby bath tubs and more. The complimentary kids club, Planet Junior has a range of activities in the morning and afternoon for children aged four and over. A nice touch were the goodie bags at the end of each participant stay. Additionally, they even have a team of Baby Concierges, qualified English babysitters, a baby listening services and children’s menus.
To top it all of, the hotel is linked up with a great app called ‘B-Guest’ which enables you to plan your stay, which certainly makes things that little bit easier when organising activities.
