The Real Marina Hotel & Spa sits just outside Olhao, east of Faro, which is known for its big fishing port. With its wonderful coastline here, including some world-class natural wetlands alongside the beaches, and sitting just outside town, there is touch of luxury to this exciting new location.

Bang up to date, the hotel boasts eco-friendly credentials, so you can enjoy the sun with a cleaner conscience. You’ll enjoy the very finest facilities in this 144-room complex with its lush gardens and ocean-view swimming pool. Your room will be bright and light, with en-suite bathrooms, satellite TVs, furnished balconies, and views over the village or the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

Enjoy fantastic spa facilities at the Real Marina, including saltwater pool, Vichy showers, shiatsu and lomi lomi massages, and many more beauty and wellness treatments. You can complement this relaxing, immersive experience with a work out at the gym.

Five-star facilities mean great service, including babysitting, laundry services, and plenty of help and advice to get the most out of your stay. On your doorstep is Olhao’s marina and the town itself is a busy port, with long links to Africa that are reflected in Moorish-style architecture in the historic quarter. It’s also developing new facilities like the long seafront promenade, and a large shopping and dining mall. Get a taste of the area though the fantastic seafood restaurants, on the nearby unspoiled beaches, or in the wildlife-rich parks of the Ria Formosa.

Faro is just along the coast, and the area’s capital is certainly worth a visit for its family waterparks, museums, and some other excellent excursions.
