My wife and I and 4yr old child have just returned from a 7 day stay in this complex. We chose this hotel as a result of it's high rating and favourable reviews on TA and once again thanks to TA reviewers we were not disappointed. We stayed in one of the garden facing, 1 bedroom appartments in block 4, not far from reception and only 100m from main pool and bar/restaurant which served lovely food and drinks at a very reasonable prices. The appartment is basic but with everything you need from cooking utensils, dishwasher, satelite TV with 16 stations including Sky News,comfortable beds, daily towel change, sunloungers and table & chairs. The garden outside the appartment enjoyed the sun throughout the afternoon and by night was extremely quiet with the exception of the odd barking dog from surrounding villas. The main pool area beside the bar/restaurant is very well maintained,our boy enjoyed splashing about in the children's pool and sunloungers were always in plentiful supply. A 7 min walk takes you to the local, well stocked Spar shop, ATM machine and paper/tobacco shop. We strolled to the marina each evening in 15 minutes and normally got a taxi back for around E4. Overall, we had a great stay in Pinhal and found it extremely good value compared with other accomodation nearer the marina. We will definitely be back to Vilamoura to enjoy great restaurants like Il Trio, Braganca Mar & Fairways..we'll also be returning to visit Zoomarine which was without doubt the highlight of our trip.
