I attended a conference at this hotel. It is well designed around cobble courtyards atop cliffs overlooking the beach. Nice pool areas. There is lift down to a wonderful beach. You can walk literally for miles along the beach and there is a pleasant beach bar. Also a wonderfully situated sunset bar on the top of the cliffs. Even in...

We've stayed several times at the Sheraton resort and it's always a great experience. Service is five stars, as well as a great location.

This is a lovely hotel with plenty to recommend it – but don’t go there if you are looking for peace and tranquillity.

Once more the overall service at the Sheraton Algarve was outstanding. We loved our room although it wasn't on the sea side, we felt a warm global reception and spent a fantastic week-end. Out of season and not going to the beach or playing golf we spent a marvelous time- Congratulations!

I cannot fault the hotel at all. We even had perfect weather. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, everyone was friendly and efficient, but with that little extra something. Loved it.

We stayed in the hotel for 5 nights at the beginning of September. The hotel is very nice and the grounds with several pools are beautiful. The staff is very professional and friendly.

I stayed at the Sheraton for five nights October. I found that the hotel is of an acceptable standard, but certainly nothing special. The food was average and the service tended to be erratic.

Pine Cliffs is a beautiful location set in amazing grounds which are well maintained.
