My second stay here and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful hotel, wonderful friendly staff, COVID safe and secure. The hotel was spotlessly clean with all sun beds being disinfected after each use, both around the pools and on the beach. Daily made service very efficient providing fresh water and replacement coffee tea etc.. golf course in immaculate condition and the weather couldn’t have been better. And to top it all without even requesting it, the management delivered a lovely bottle of sparking wine (Method Champagne) to my room on my birthday. The only slight downside is the hotel restaurants are very expensive to eat and drink in. However there are a number of decent restaurants across the main road just outside the front entrance and also down the road, not to mention the village of Olhos D’Agua which is only a 20 minute walk (5 minutes taxi ride) away. All in all a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, absolutely luxury, with 2 huge rooms, 2 bathrooms, huge terrace! We loved it.. first I made booking for 2 nights, but we prolonged for 3 :)) could not resist :) What we liked: Our apartment - super clean, spacious, modern Beach - absolutely amazing, clean, and well maintained Personnel - very friendly and helpful, they answer via bonvoy chat within 2 minutes! What could be better: Some salt, oil, towels in the kitchen, a bit of detergent to wash clothes.. we had to buy all that for our 3 nights stay - not very comfy Prices - the resort is already quite expensive, and they want you to pay for spa (30 EUR), for sunbeds (those that are in the 1st raw cost 90 EUR - seriously?!), prices in the restaurants - very, very high Even so I would definitely come back once more! Because it is just amazing place.

Ok, so Portugal only opened to UK visitors four dats before we arrived, so the resort was not functioning at 100% (fewer restaurants, staff and sunbeds). Despite this we had a great stay. We liked: - spacious well equipped apartments - comfortable beds - very green environment; it literally smells of pine - friendly service - reasonable but not spectacular food - beautiful pool and beach - close to other restaurant options outside resort - car and bike hire on site Things to work on: - noisy aircon - long distances to everything, particularly with residences reception and restaurant closed due to Covid. Shuttle wasn’t very reliable and we walked a lot - hard to get sunbeds after 10am - food and drink expensive for what it was (although similar to other 5 star hotels) - quite far from Albufeira (20 min drove)

We came back to Pine Cliffs resort in August 2020 after a wonderful stay we had in July 2019. I am very disappointed with my last experience as they literally packed the resort to the max. Everything you do, you have to queue. From breakfast to finding sunbeds at the beach. We even paid one day for a “premium” beach experience which was a total joke: you pay 90€ to have exactly the same sunbeds as the ones for free and they give you one bottle of water and a “plate” of fruit which in reality was 2 watermelon small bites and 2 melon small bites. A total joke. All restaurants were busy, the Maré close to the beach made us wait 1 hour once just to sit at a table. The gym as well was super packed and had to queue for the cardio machines. If I was managing this hotel since there are rules on reduced capacity/social distancing I would have allowed fewer people to book and maybe covered that with a bit higher prices but like this the experience has been really unpleasant.

Dear Cecilia V, First of all, thank you very much for sharing with us and other travelers your recent experience. We are very sorry to read your comments and we sincerely regret to know about your disappointment on your stay with us We are sure that the adjustments that we were lead to make in our operation, regarding the current pandemic situation, had reflections in the guests' experience and for that we would like to present our most sincere apologies. In regards to the beach and its facilities, please be informed that a small number of sun lounges, 36 spaces, have been made available to be reserved, (opportunity to book in advance to guarantee the sits) for a daily fee of 90 euros (1 shadow and 2 sun chairs) or Balinese with a daily cost of 175€ for 5 persons, over 200 spaces available for free sitting. The number of spaces and social distance regulations are due to COVID situation, and in compliance with the Portuguese authorities. Also and in order to clarify, please note that in Portugal all beaches are public, except for the concessions, in which the number of sun chair and shadows are regulated by the local authorities. Regarding the sun beds in the pools and gardens, traditionally guests would go out of the resort to explore, now and due to the current situation, they spend the day in the premises to avoid being exposed to risk. Therefore, operationally it creates some challenges in some of our services and facilities, which we have already improved by adding more sun beds in all the pools and gardens. Once again, we regret to know about your unpleasant experience in these unusual times, and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in future and be able to provide you a better time. Kind regards Guest Relations Team
