High-end hotels are scattered across the Algarve, in some of the region's best locations. The Tivoli Marina Vilamoura
, for example, is sandwiched between a marina and a gold-sand beach, while the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa
is tucked away in four hectares of gardens, right in the heart of town. Then there's Blue & Green The Lake Spa Resort
, which puts you in arm's reach of six world-class golf courses, and the clifftop Vila Vita Parc
, which is cocooned in subtropical gardens.
