Clube Atlantico enjoys a quiet, cliff top location to the east of the former fishing village of Carvoeiro, where you’ll find friendly cafés and bars and a huge selection of restaurants clustered around the little town beach. The delightful beaches of Marinha, Paraíso and Vale de Centeanes are a short drive away while the glorious Praia do Carvalho, is within walking distance of the resort.

Clube Atlantico is ideal for families, with an array of facilities on hand including tennis courts, playground and communal pool. It is also well placed to visit the thrilling waterparks at Lagoa and Alcantarilha and a sea life park at Guia. Those looking for some retail therapy should head to the town of Portimão or the Algarve Shopping mall, both around 15 minutes away by car, while the golf courses along this stretch of coast will exceed the expectations of even the keenest of players.

John

Family (the eldest child is at school)
A spacious and well maintained villa in a good and quiet location. The villa is very close (across the road) to an excellent Italian restaurant (Bella Vita) and several other good restaurants and small beaches are within a 5 minute drive.

Colin

Family (the eldest child is at school)
The villa was very spacious and clean although the beds were a little on the hard side. the cleaner came in every day and the times varied from 1.30pm to 5.45pm.

5.45pm was a little inconvenient as I was about to start making the evening meal.
