Heading up to the Conrad entrance is an immediately impressive event for guests to this ultra-luxe hotel in the Portuguese Algarve. The avenue leading from the access road is a long drive. However, it is saluted by sentry-straight rows of palm trees and serenaded by water fountains' splashing.
Banks of fragrant flowers and aromatic shrubs welcome the guests to a magnificent modern building. Moreover, it was designed in the style of an 18th century Portuguese Palace.
Entering this haven, the huge vaulted interior is with natural light, enhancing the palatial experience. Furthermore, the staff is immediately on hand to complete the welcome reception.
The Conrad Algarve, part of Hilton hotels, commands an excellent situation right in the Golden Triangle, a wealthy area within easy reach of Faro airport. This comprises three regions popular with tourists and locals for the Algarve beaches. Many sporting activities, as well as high-end shopping and fine restaurants, are here.
The hotel is in Quinta do Lago, an exclusive, gated community beloved of golfers. Besides, this area, along with Vale do Lobo, has several first-rate golf courses. These have hosted PGA European tours and the Portuguese Open Championship.
Here golfers can hone their skills or receive expert instruction and then enjoy Conrad’s relaxing spa and top-class dining facilities. The fine sandy beaches and yacht marina of Vilamoura on the Atlantic coast, and award-winning restaurants of Almancil are close by.
This resort has been highly commended for its exceptional staff and concierge facilities, which match Conrad's overall top-notch standard.
Guests are warmly and efficiently welcomed to the light-filled magnificence of this 154-bed building. It is with Moorish themes and elemental motifs by Miguel Cancio Martins.
The designer uses pastels to create an airy quality enhanced by an average of 300 days of Algarve sunshine streaming through the windows onto marbled floors. Moreover, contemporary art pieces grace the walls and add color.
Grand Deluxe, Single, Twin, or Grande, king-sized bed, and pool view. These 134 rooms echo the spaciousness and pastel tones of the public areas.
Wide windows allow natural lighting inside. Shades of blue and grey bedeck super-comfortable sofa seating and beds with huge padded headboards and white linen.

Gusto by Heinz Beck restaurant is the pride of the Conrad. Besides, Chef Beck has achieved three Michelin stars in his illustrious career, helping Gusto gain one in 2018.
His inspired cuisine blends traditional Mediterranean dishes in a modern and innovative style. These are complemented by a knowledgeable sommelier and a great wine list. The suave Scandinavian décor is a quiet backdrop for fine cookery, including Beck’s must-have specialty, Fagotelli Carbonara.
Gusto has a seasonal menu from March and is only open evenings. Conrad cocktails spiked up with spice and fruit are in the bar. Of course, this is before the pleasures of dining here are lingered over beyond midnight.
The Louro restaurant offers an alternative to Gusto throughout the day and evening hours, starting with a Portuguese fare luscious breakfast. Local hams, cheeses, bread, fresh fruits, and vegetables are in original ways up to 10.30 pm.
The Louro has a perfect setting overlooking the Infinity Pool. Lots of glass and elegant aqua seating tone well and drift into an outdoor space and pergola.
For visitors who enjoy swimming and/or poolside lounging, the hotel offers plenty of choices. The Sereno Infinity Pool and Dado are outdoors (in fine weather), with the Maria beachside facilities a few minutes away.
Alternatively, the heated indoor pool is close to the children’s area for parents to drop them off for supervised activities. The Dado Pool, behind attractive gardens, is suitable for guests enjoying family together time. Moreover, it has a sun terrace, cabanas, and a children’s pool too.
Furthermore, the Sereno Infinity Pool is heated and benefits from a poolside bar and dining area.
The spa at the Conrad is an exceptionally luxurious feature. Above all, swish outdoor and indoor amenities include options of superb full wellness treatment programs. Also, an infinity pool, showers, and plush relaxation/ refreshment areas are included.
The fitness center is also a state-of-the-art facility with the latest cardio and strength training equipment plus a personal trainer (fee applies).
The Conrad is a family-oriented hotel with many organized activities for parents and children. For instance, the Little C Kid’s Club activities are seasonal and involve all kinds of arts and crafts. Also, water sports fun, treasure hunts, and cookery lessons are here.
A delightful ‘princess’ dressing-up day or safari ride and picnic are also arranged occasionally. Besides, parents can join in family fishing trips or boat rides, and the youngest ones can end the day with a bedtime story.
The Algarve is famed for its superb wines, and guests can experience wine and winetasting days. Olive-oil or clam and oyster tasting are other options with bikes and boats of all types for hire or just the pleasure of walking routes.
In conclusion, the Conrad has everything to offer for active visitors or lounge-lizard guests wanting a break from hectic lives. If this could not possibly be enough, the hotel is an ideal base for exploring the Algarve countryside's wider joys.
