You have just arrived in one of the busiest areas in the Algarve: beautiful beaches, surrounded by picture postcard rocky cliffs, a blue sky and a calm warm sea.Such is the beach in Armação de Pêra, a town with its historical center, its lively local life all year round, and many, many people in the summer.
And this is where the story of your holiday changes, by choosing the Pestana Viking Resort - a 4-star hotel with a spa and wellness center away from the downtown bustle, right next to the quiet and secluded beach of Nossa Senhora da Rocha, with its gardens over the cliffs and its pedestrian access to one of the most beautiful and protected beaches in Western Algarve. The saltwater pools add an extra Algarve flavor to your holidays.
Overlooking the chapel, surrounded by the sea from three sides and by large gardens with palm trees and lawns, perfect to lay on a lounge chair and enjoy the many days of sunshine, the Pestana Viking Resort is the ideal hotel to spend your family vacation in Armação de Pêra. Nossa Senhora da Rocha is a traditional beach where fishermen still work on a regular basis, coming in their small boats with their daily fisheries. Despite having access to a gym, be sure to walk down to the beach every day and come back up again: the perfect exercise to make you want to lie down on the lounge chair for the rest of the day without a shred of guilt.
After all, if you indulged in more than one dessert yesterday or were seduced by a rump steak during that special barbecue last night, the beach access is the perfect solution to stay fit and be ready for the bikini - or the swimming trunks. It's hard not to forget reality when you have all you need within sight - and feet. Whether you seek the old Algarve authenticity or simply want to stretch out in the sun as much as possible to recharge your batteries, the Viking Resort is the place to be.
The light colors, in shades of sand and sea, dominate the decor, making you forget that there is life after the beach. The gardens - large, spacious and cool - always have a little nook for you to take a rest from the demanding rhythm of the holidays. To enhance this feeling, the wellness area, with its heated indoor pool with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, duckbill valve with pressurized water, and gym overlooking the street - all are ready to provide you with hours of entertainment. And of course, if you want to treat yourself to a massage every day, you can do it in the spa area with noise-free treatment rooms and relaxation zone.
And speaking of noise, if you came here because it's a perfect place to travel with your family and small children, how will you even think of silence? Pestana Viking Resort thought about you and created wide aisles, easy access, well-defined spaces, a huge indoor swimming pool and the Kids Club to entertain your children. The playroom next to the bar and the access to the indoor pool, the ping-pong tables outside, the swimming pools and the nightlife are the delight of this wide and open space where children can run and play freely and experience absolutely memorable holiday moments.
Pestana Tip: The key advantage of this hotel is its prime location, overlooking the cliffs, beaches and pedestrian access by the sea, stretching up to downtown Armação de Pêra. Given its characteristics, it's the perfect place to come as a family and spend a few laid-back days.
