The townhouse accommodation was good, apart from needing to go down a staircase to reach the bathroom from the top bedroom, where there was nowhere to put towels and no waste bin. The house was cleaned every day and the staff were helpful and friendly. The outside area was not fenced, so one had to be careful with children. We...

Our first time visiting Portugal, and so wanted to search for a good holiday with a great family resort. The positive reviews on TripAdvisor sold it for us, and the beautiful photos shared of the cliffs down to the sea. It really is a stunning beauty, a must see!

We really wanted this vacation and location to be great, but alas, it was sadly mediocre. Let's start with the goods: the location is fantastic and the cliffs are really beautiful. The grounds are sprawling (enormous to be exact) and for the most part very well maintained. We came after huge storms and they were busy picking up but after...

We stayed in a 2 Bedroom Pine Cliffs Residence Garden Access Apartment, very close to the main pool and shop. A very safe and relaxing environment, with no need to worry about where the children are. Since we last came the wifi has been improved, much to the delight of teenagers and adults alike, although it is irritating to be...

We stayed at Pine Cliffs for a week at the start of October. I can only echo what other reviewers have said about this resort.

Grounds, gardens and room product are great but seriously let down of the lack of generosity and service. As a family, we have stayed at many resorts in the US, Europe and the Middle East.

A lovely resort that has truly 5 star facilities, setting & location. Unfortunately, it is completely let down by the lack of friendliness/customer service of staff but even more so....the unnecessary charging of absolutely everything, which leaves a very bad taste & is the reason we'll never return or recommend. Wi-Fi was charged at 50 Euros for 5 days, the...

For vacationing is this a great place with an abundance choice of accommodations. The beach is lovely as well as the route to it. Very spacious in his surroundings and swimming pools. Disadvantage: it is in the middle of nowhere and the restaurants have a lousy quality.
