Just a short drive from Faro International Airport, Formas Park combines superb accessibility with a privileged setting. It’s situated on the borders of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve – a coastal lagoon of green-fringed waterways that are animated by everything from colourful flamingos to one of the world’s largest populations of seahorses. It’s no surprise that the reserve is billed as one of Portugal’s ‘Seven Natural Wonders’. At Formosa Park, you’ll also have the Blue Flag Ancão Beach just a short walk away for some of those typically Algarvian white sands along with golf courses, watersports and sailing.
What sets Formosa Park apart is its apartment layout. Stay a while with kitchen facilities and comfortable living areas that make the most of each suite’s generous 80m2 layout. They even feature spacious balconies that come fully furnished to help you make the most of views over the hotel’s immaculately landscaped gardens. If you’re a larger group, the two bedroom suites are perfect, featuring larger kitchens and living areas. Whatever you choose, you’ll be able to relax in a delightfully heritage style, with wicker furnishing and tiled floors typical of Portuguese décor.
Many guests are Formosa Park choose to settle right into the relaxed swing of things by making use of their apartment’s self-catering facilities. Return from days spent on the beach to dinner on your private balcony. However, full-board dining is also available at the excellent Arcos Bar. Here, buffet breakfasts are followed by snack services and à la carte dinners and lunches. Expect a full range of international and Portuguese favourites served either in the restaurant or on the poolside terrace
To match its resort sensibilities, Formosa Park features an excellent spread of amenities. There are outdoor swimming pools equipped with sun loungers and parasols while the Ancão beach is just a nature-trail walk away. Here, you’ll be able to enjoy a spread of watersports that range from banana boating to water-skiing and pedalos. There’s also superb bird watching in the area, along with the Cerro da Vila Roman ruins. And, if you need a break from it all, in-room massages and physiotherapy are available on request.
