Portugal offers a wide range of first class resorts. Many of them are concentrated in the Algarve, the most touristic region of the country; however, no matter if you are heading north, south or even the Portuguese archipelagos, namely Madeira and Azores, you will find the perfect first class resort for you.
Bellow are listed some of my favorite ones. I choose them mostly for the wonderful time I spend in all of them. Hope they provide you as good memories as they did to me.
