What’s new: Conrad Hotels & Resorts has become even more family friendly with the addition of the Little C Palace kids' club at the new Conrad Algarve, Portugal. Designed by children, for children, the Little C Palace allows children to be the decision makers on their holiday.

Design and concept ideas for the Little C Palace came from school-aged children in local schools in the Quinta do Lago area who were asked to draw pictures of their favourite things to do and see on holiday, as well as what their favourite healthy meals were. Using this research, the Little C Palace team developed the mascots Afonso and his lizard friend, Liz. These mascots welcome children on their arrival and give them their own key and secret code to encourage children to find the hidden doorway into the Palace.

Children aged three to 12 years old will have the opportunity to learn about the local culture and will be encouraged to use their imaginations through a variety of challenges.

Activities: Little C Palace has top-secret assignments, which are posted on a teaser board every day, for children to complete. All of these missions encourage the explorers to use their imagination and interact with other children. Aside from the secret tasks, the club also has a variety of other age-appropriate activities like fancy dress parties, face painting, gymnastics sessions, mini golf, Children’s Yoga, and Zumbatonic.

While children are solving the top-secret assignments, parents can enjoy a relaxing holiday; taking advantage of the spa facilities, four pools, and enjoy meals from Gusto restaurant by the award-winning Chef Heinz Beck, making Conrad Algarve the perfect choice for a family holiday.
