If the words "kids" and "club" feature in your checklist of
requirements when contemplating your next holiday, we can highly
recommend Martinhal on the south western tip of Portugal.
It's a resort on the last bit of mainland before Brazil, and
it's absolutely brilliant if you've got children: masses to do,
fantastic food, seriously comfy beds (we know, we're obsessed and
needn't have bothered taking our own pillows!) and only 2 hours'
flight from London. It's staffed by exceptionally nice people who
were quite used to babysitting and dealing with the aftermath of
kids' meals. So if you're a knackered parent in need of a break,
give this place a whirl - it's a goodun. x
