Accessible Accommodation in the Algarve

Travel & Tourism
Portugal is a popular destination for summer holidaymakers in search of that perfect combination of sun, sea and sand, as well as fabulous food and wonderful wine. It is also an excellent choice if you are looking for holidays for disabled travellers.

The Algarve region is located at the southern tip of the country and is reputedly the sunniest place in Europe. Visitors flock to the Algarve to not only catch the seemingly endless rays, but also to discover the lush interior, enjoy beautiful views and experience pure relaxation. Choosing an accessibility-friendly hotel means that you can rest assured that you will have nothing to worry about if you have a disability. Here are four excellent hotels that have made limited mobility a priority.

Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas, Vilamoura

This five-star hotel is a haven of relaxation. Outdoor pools that resemble lakes have waterfall features. The modern spa area, where you can indulge in a therapeutic massage, is a veritable highlight, as is golf at the adjacent Pinhal Golf Course.

All areas of the hotel are accessible to wheelchair users, bathrooms are equipped with grab bars and rooms are light and modern with wide doorways and plenty of space. Each one boasts a balcony or terrace, which is perfect when you want to soak up the balmy evening and enjoy a beverage or two in the comfort of your own space. The resting area, with its tranquil waterfalls, is a real treat, as is the indoor pool that has been designed to mimic an ancient Roman bath.

The hotel offers free evening shuttles to Vilamoura Marina, which is helpful when you have limited mobility. Ramps access main entrances and lifts have lowered Braille keypads, as well as visual and audible alarms – the features here are truly second to none!

Vila Galé Cerro Alagoa, Albufeira

A great four-star hotel, this place is ideal for couples and families. Accessibility in all areas is excellent, and staff members are always on hand to help. Close to Albufeira’s shops and restaurants and only a six-minute walk from the beach, you can’t go wrong with staying here for your holidays.

For disabled people, the adapted bathrooms are a welcome sight, and you can choose between a bath and wet room. Bedrooms are stylish and air-conditioned and also have a mini-bar for your convenience. A delicious Portuguese menu is served at the restaurant on site, which also dishes up a wonderful buffet breakfast.

Vila Galé Ampalius, Quarteira

Another very good four-star option, the Vila Galé Ampalius is a popular choice when it comes to holidays. For disabled guests, accessibility throughout the hotel is good and bathrooms have either a bath or roll-in shower. Rooms are inviting and spacious, with some even boasting a balcony.

Only a two-minute walk from the beach, the hotel is in a prime spot. Facilities include a health club that offers a variety of therapeutic treatments, a Turkish bath and a sauna. Families can take advantage of the Vila Galé’s Nep Kids’ Club.

Vila Galé Marina, Vilamoura

Enjoying a quiet location, this contemporary accommodation has large rooms, some of which feature a living and dining area. One room has been specially adapted for people requiring a wheelchair. The bathroom has all of the necessary aids and there is enough room on either side of the bed for easy transfer, and access to the outdoor area is level. Close to the beach, Vila Galé Marina’s facilities include a tennis court, fitness centre and a tour desk, at which you can comfortably book excursions.

When it comes to wheelchair accessibility, spaces in all areas are generous, and the reception desk is at a suitable height to receive anyone with a disability. In short, Portugal is a wonderful place to choose for your holidays – for disabled visitors, too, there is everything that you need to make your trip one to remember.
