What is it?
Kangaroo Club, Dona Filipa & San Lorenzo Golf Resort, Vale do Lobo.
What makes it special?
A children's club covering over 2000 sq. metres, with play and activity areas including an indoor activity room, adventure playground, outdoor swimming pool, table tennis and badminton/volleyball. Children are able to play, participate in games and learn in a safe, supervised environment, as well as make new friendships.
What age range is this suitable for?
From 6 months up to 12 years.
Fun activities are segmented by age groups to increase children's learning capacities. Children up to the age of 3 are cared for individually. Children between 3 and 5 can participate in a programme of activities such as play-doe sculpturing, painting and constructing. Children aged from 6 to 12 are offered the same activities but with higher skill levels, as well as excursions and sport lessons.
Why do you love it?
Parents are always welcome at the club, especially during lunch times, picnics or when specific events are organised. To guarantee complete safety the club uses a colour-coded wrist band system, depending on granted permissions, specific restrictions and/or
special health and dietary issues that staff may need to be made aware of.
The club offers specially prepared meals, taking into consideration children's preferences and nutritional requirements. Meals can also be planned according to parents' indications.
The club was originally set up as Penguin Village, an established brand of children's clubs when the hotel was part of Le Meridien. Following JJW Hotels & Resorts' acquisition of the hotel, the club was re-branded with a new name and mascot whilst maintaining the high quality and safety standards that guests have become accustomed to.
Access to the Kangaroo Club is free of charge for the children of Dona Filipa & San Lorenzo Golf Resort guests. Children of non-residents may also attend the club although a fee will apply - contact the hotel for details.
Daytimes from Easter until the end of October (plus Christmas and New Year).
