          Hi, we are visiting the Pestana Viking at the end of August. Is there a playground for the kids? What is the gym like? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :).

          There is no playground for the kids but a large children's pool and plenty of grass space (with sun loungers) for them to play. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. We didn't use the gym so couldn't comment.
