Food & Drink

The main restaurant, Real Cozinha, dishes up gorgeous Portuguese cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a range of ample buffets to choose from. For dinner with an Italian flavour, there’s also the fabulous Bellavista a la carte venue - and for drinks, there’s a great choice of bars, including a lobby bar, lounge and two seasonal pool bars.

Please note that Real Cozinha is closed during December and January, and that pre-booking is essential for Bellavista. A ‘resort casual’ dress code applies to both venues.

All Inclusive Food & Drink

The hotel’s All Inclusive programme includes breakfast (07:00-10:00), lunch (12:30-15:00) and dinner (19:00-22:30), all served buffet-style in the main restaurant. A choice of snacks are also offered from 10:00-12:30 and 15:00-19:00, along with a wide range of locally-produced alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from 09:00-23:00, subject to each bar’s individual opening times.

All Inclusive guests can also benefit from complimentary use of the sauna/steam room, 50% off use of the gym, 10% off selected spa treatments, and 25% off meals at Bellavista.

Sports & Entertainment

There are four sparkling pools to choose from in the outdoor complex – two for adults and two for children – along with a heated indoor pool for a spot of shade. Active holidaymakers can get stuck into a superb animation programme, which includes water games, football, archery and language classes - whilst for those who prefer to chill, there’s a stunning spa (swimming cap mandatory) complete with a Jacuzzi, experience showers, fitness suite and treatment menu. Plus, little ones will be right at home at the seasonal Realito Kids Club, which offers activities for ages 0-3 (with parental accompaniment) and 4-12 - and the evening entertainment is great for the whole family, including live music and professional shows.
