The Encosta do Lago resort is located within walking distance of the beach in Quinta do Lago and yet snuggled in peace and quiet right by the lake. It’s a family friendly destination with all the luxury facilities you would expect of the premier resort Quinta do Lago.

Stays here include return Faro airport transfers.

Each of the apartments are stylishly decorated with a luxurious palette of contrasting tones, both neutral and rustic. Attention has been given to every detail. Guests can enjoy the simple addition of a welcome basket of fruit and other yummy treats as well as a free welcome drink in the on-site restaurant, Tucanos. Laze by the pool for the afternoon or get competitive with a game of tennis. Head to the spa to relax and be pampered or slog it out in the gym. There are lots of things to fill your day during your stay in Encosta do Lago.

Best of all, this is one of the few resorts that is also pet-friendly. That’s right! You can bring along your little furry friend on holidays so the whole family can enjoy fun in the sun. Read more information on travelling with pets.

There are great restaurants which are only a short walk away from the resort. If you want to watch live sports and enjoy some great food and even a spot of live music then Danos Sports Bar & Restaurant is the perfect match.

The second choice would of course be the famous Shack bar and restaurant which is located on the lake and is great for all the family to enjoy, including food, drink, live music and water activites for the children. This is only a 7 minute walk away from the resort.

Outside of the resort, the area also has lots to offer with plenty of fun things to do - everything from afternoon activities to day trips down the coast.
