Four seasons or As Cascatas Apartments?

Hello

Just looking for a bit of advice, we are a young but large family (4 children ages 2, 5, 7, 8) and are looking for a summer break to Portugal. We normally holiday in the US or France and have never been to Portugal and have narrowed it down to two hotels The Four Seasons or As Cascatas.

So going on child ages does anyone recommend one over the other.

We don't really want to hire a car, but love walking and ideally want to be able to try a variety of places to eat out in.

Any advice would be great

Many thanks

Location wise you'll be better off in Four Seasons. A walk to the marina will take you around 15 minutes. There's also a road train which passes both Four Seasons and the Hilton. It runs to the marina and the beach (see under Top Questions to the right of this page).

Next to Four Seasons is Old Village with a supermarket, restaurants, cafes and a playground.

As Cascatas is a newer construction but it's further out. A walk to the marina is approx 25 minutes. There's a Michelin star restaurant just behind it as well as a bar which I believes sells some food as well.

I would definitely recommend the Four Seasons. The Hilton is a bit stuffy.

Would highly recommend the Old Village next door to rhe Four Seasons.

Enjoy.

Thank you, just another quick question. How far is the nearest beach?

There are two beaches, they are at each side of the marina.

Just add 10 walking minutes to the ones I gave you above.

You could also have a look at Google maps to get an idea.

The tourist train goes at ten past the hour from the four seasons and drops you off at one of the beaches, We have stayed three times in the four seasons and would highly recommend it.
