Myself and 11 other male golfers have just spent a week at the Pinhal da Marina complex in Vilamoura Portugal. On arrival the girl in reception was very nice, she quickly sorted our rooms and even got a member of staff to show us where they were on the grounds. The rooms where very spacious, we had four sharing each apartment with two bedrooms with twin beds. The apartments had everything you could want, a spacious lounge, nice bathroom with shower over bath and a good size kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, kettle etc. The rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels and also had air conditioning at no extra cost. The grounds and gardens in the complex were very well looked after and very secure being fenced off from surrounding areas. The main pool and childrens pool were excellent, they were cleaned every morning and the pool area was spottless. The restaurant was very good and had breakfast from 7 to 10am which was continental, if you like a good fry up your out of luck but the continental was more than adequate to start the day. There is an all day menu with pizzas,sea bass and other simple foods but if you want an excellent meal there is another menu which you order for the next day which has some fantastic sea food dishes. I can highly recommend the "Cataplana" which is southern Portuguese dish of praws, clams, pork or monkfish. The prices at the restaurant were very reasonable for food and drink, and I would like to thank John and Manuel who were very helpfull with nothing being to much trouble. Also a thank you to the ladies in the kitchen who produced some excellent dishes, one of my friends Henry who is Spanish and a chef was most impressed with the standards. He went into the kitchen to thank the ladies and said the kitchen was spottless and very well organised. We didn't walk down to Villamoura Marina because we had hire cars but other guests said it was about a fifteen minute walk. This complex is just nicely away from the Marina and is very peaceful.
All in all I would highly recommend Pinhal da Marina to family's or couples alike, the place is spotless and the people are very nice.
