Food, Drink and Entertainment

Concurring to the possible boarding options, the main restaurant serves buffet breakfast (7:30am to 10am), mostly continental but with a good selection of local items and beverages. You can have buffet lunch (12:30pm to 2:30pm) in the restaurant or at the poolside bar. And for dinner (7pm to 9:30pm), you can choose to have the buffet meal or head to the a la carte restaurant. The buffet restaurant serves wine, beer, soft drinks and hot & cold beverages to compliment the meals—and you will find local and international items on the spread. The main bar opens between 11am and 11pm, the poolside bar operates from 11am to 6pm, and the albatross bar opens from 6pm to 11pm. These bars serve a huge collection of classic infusions and mixes along with local specialities and premium drinks.

Sports, Games and Entertainment

The hotel features two outdoor swimming pools with loungers and parasols—aqua entertainments and games are held during summers. Recreational activities popular among guests are tennis, table tennis, giant chess, darts, and other board games. The hotel also opens kid’s mini club (6 to 12 years) between the months of June and August—professionals conduct a wide range of games and sports and workshops. And some extra leisure, you can visit the wellness centre that comes with sauna, fitness centre, indoor heated pool, and whirlpool—in the list are Turkish bath, body treatment and relaxation therapies. Night animations are held regularly including live performances, DJ parties, theme dinner and other entertaining live shows. 


Located in Vale de Centianes (Algarve), Hotel Baía Cristal is a family friendly four-star destination. The resort is equipped with 120 modern rooms and features a luxurious spa.
