We stayed in block 44 behind the restaurant/larger pool. We now know we privately rented the accommodation, it wasn't clear when we booked with booking.com but was made very clear to us by reception who were not impressed and stressed we were the owners guest and not theirs n we weren't allowed to us any facilities on site. They were... More

we stayed in the older part of the complex so I can only really talk about that. Ok so it needed a bit of a refurb but the accommodation was very good indeed, spacious, airy and well appointed. I think the newer ones are a bit smarter looking at them. Great pools with plenty of beds etc, good poolside bar... More

This was the first time we had stayed in apartments in Portugal and we are already looking at going back next year! Absolutely fantastic two week stay at the Pinhal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The resort itself was always kept immaculate. Myself, my husband and two children stayed in a one bed apartment and could not fault it.... More

Place is nice and quiet with nice gardens. Staff very friendly. On-site restaurant fine, occasionally not coping with amount of custom and getting orders wrong or taking longer than they should. Apartments fine although a few lights need to be trunked as wires are long and hanging so not ideal with children. Spacious rooms and good kitchens. 10 min walk... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with a group of friends. Upon arrival the reception staff were very helpful giving us a map of the area and explaining how we could find the nearest shop and quickest way to the marina etc, We were then shown to our rooms which we found to be a lot more spacious than expected....

Arrived home today from Pinhal De Marina with my wife and kids (7 and 9) after a fantastic week. Everything from arrival to departure was excellent. We arrived at 9.30 a.m. as we had an early flight. Our check-in time was 4 p.m and we expected to drop off our luggage and then have to head into Villamoura for the... More

Very disappointed of the quality of our accommodation. This was supposed to be a 4 star apartment but it is probably a 2-3 star by UK standards. The bath was only big enough to wash a child and the decor was from the 1970's. The apartment block where we were staying resembled a council estate. There was no blind or... More

Our experience with Pinhal da Marina is very disappointing and upsetting. Unfortunately we had booked this accommodation through Low Cost Holidays. Two days before we were due to travel we received an email from Pinhal stating that they had no accommodation available as a result of Low Cost Holidays going into administration. This hotel gave away our accommodation for the... More

Just back from staying in the pinhal da marina with my wife and son, The two bed apartment was perfect for us. Clean and spacious with lovely views. Plenty room around the pool with restaurant there aswell. Playground was perfect aswell. Planning to return next year. fifteen to twenty minutes away from the marina and the beach.
