“Outstanding !!”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just come back from a 4 day stay at the Pinecliffs Villa, had an amazing time there .
There were 10 lads that stayed, the villa was an ample size for us, the pictures truely do not do the villa justice, I was blown away when we arrived and were led round by Miguel .
Everything from the rooms to the pool, it was absolutely superb. We used the bbq everyday after buying food from the local supermarket which is a 5 min walk from the villa. I would go back in a heartbeat.
The communication before, during and after was faultless and can't thank the owner and his team enough !! Highly recommended !

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This villa was absolutely lovely for the 12 of us girls all staying for four days for a hen weekend. From the moment we landed in Faro, Miguel the property manager made sure we were all okay and arranged all of our transfers for us during our stay, nothing was too much trouble for him. Albufeira is a 10 minute drive in to the old town and Vilamoura about 20 Minutes.

The villa is idyllic and has plenty of space for a large group of girls. The outside area is well kept and there were enough sunbeds for all of us to lounge around the pool listening to music and drinking prosseco ( heaven ). The pool was a bit cold in May but we did brave it and take a dip and its lovely and clean too. The living area is large enough for big groups and there is plenty of space at the tables outside should you wish to dine alfresco.

There is a beautiful beach which you can reach within a ten minute walk which has a lovely little restaurant to have lunch. Also, the Sheraton hotel is next door which has a really nice restaurant called Piri Piri which is worth a visit. There is a supermarket at the end of the road along with a few bars and souvenir shops.

I would defiantly recommend this villa and would certainly go back again.

There were 10 in our party staying in the villa, there was plenty of room for all of us to sit outside or sit in the lounge. We asked for there to be enough seating around the table and both combining tables (one from outside and a smaller round table) there was enough room for all 10 of use to eat around the table. The villa was clean and tidy and is directly next door to the Sheraton, there are restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance, although Albufeira was a 15 minutes car ride.
When we arrived we were met by Miguel, the property manager who was very friendly and couldn't do enough for us (he even organised a taxi for new years eve). He started by giving a tour of the villa and pointed out all things that were needed to be known. We had a small problem with an over door closing and Miguel came the next morning and quickly changed it without any issues.
There was a bath towel and small towel provided for each bed and the beds were made, although the pillows were a little thin, but that may just be a personal preference.
Overall, all 10 people who went were impressed with the villa and wouldn't hesitate using it again.

Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were a small party with very late flights into Faro but we didn't have to worry as Patrick had arranged transfers and when we arrived at villa everything was as we would like to have it. Beds comfortable with plenty of towels. Beautiful tranquil location with plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and bars in the locality. Walking distance to a very clean beach. Pool was cleaned twice during our 10 day stay.would love to go back

“Great villa for large group & excellent location.”

There were 9 altogether celebrating a 40th Birthday. Great villa for large groups & lovely pool. Villa is situated in a picturesque, quite road with supermarket & local restaurants literally 5 minutes walk. Supermarket has great choice of food & drink so no need to travel to a larger supermarket. Sheritan resort almost next door, with walkway to the beach, which was stunning and has a beach restaurant (prices on the higher side but worth it for the beachfront view). You can use the restaurants etc at the Sheritan but beware if you want to use their pool - €50. Not that you need to as the villa's pool is perfectly adequate. Villa had everything you needed. I've marked it 4 stars instead of 5 only for minor points - lighting in bathrooms & lack of sockets near mirrors but we worked our way around this. It also could have been cleaned better but really wasn't bad at all so don't let this put you off at all as was just under beds & bin in loo not emptied so nothing much. Colombia company we booked through were brilliant. We were also allowed to check in & depart when we wanted due to no immediate bookings either side of our stay which was great as no hanging around for the keys etc & felt like it lengthened our stay. Taxi to Abufeira is about 10-15mins & cost approx €10 for a minibus. Albufuria town is stunning - lots of old winding streets with shops & comes alive at night with the restaurants facing the beautiful coastal views & great bars for nightlife. Would definitely recommend this villa & may stay there again.

“Perfect Villa For Total Relaxation”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I spent a short break at this amazing villa in August along with some friends and on arrival we were all impressed at how well presented the villa was. The spacious and beautiful lounge was often a welcome cool haven after indulging in too much sun around the pool just through the french windows. We loved the mature garden with its pine trees and mature gardens which was the perfect location for long chill out days around the pool. and quickly found Brothers Bar across the road to spend our evenings needing no taxis at all! The kitchen is incredible and had everything we needed with a great dining room attached. Seemed to be bathrooms everywhere all beautifully appointed, especially the showstopper one upstairs of which you could only say WOW! Great time was had by all. Definately go back.

“Great holiday, highly recommend.”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had 3 families that was made up of 6 adults 6 children aged from 4 months to 7 years old. I hope this review helps.

We arrived at the villa and the maintenance staff were still preparing the Vila which wasn't a great problem. Within an hour the villa was ready to go. The pool was noticeably cold which was a major concern as the children would go on to spend all day everyday in the pool. After a quick phone call to the management and some negotiating we had someone over within an hour to turn the pool heater on which sorted it for the rest of the stay.

The outside space was good, pool a good size, grass for the kids to play on to the side of the villa. It had 2 large tables and loads of chairs and sun loungers. There is an outside brick BBQ which got loads of use whilst we were there. The only real disappoint for us was the pool table was very slanted towards the middle so quite unusable, I'm sure they can adjust this. I think there need to be more pool towels.

The kitchen did lack pint glasses and some decent knives but had just about enough of everything else for us to get by. The beds weren't the best we have ever slept on but certainly not the worse. The bedrooms were all a good size with bathrooms all over the villa which is nice as we had at least one per family plus spare. The lounge had a good size TV with more than enough TV channels for the kids to watch when out the sun also showing loads of European football keeping the dads happy. We also had the wifi which is a must for most people.

The location is great down a quiet street on the side of the Pine Cliffs resort. The beach was about a 1-2 mile walk down a winding sandy road. There may have been a quicker route but we never managed to find it. At the bottom of the road turning left there is a great supermarket selling fresh warm bread, cheap alcohol, fresh fruit and veg as well as normal supermarket groceries. If you turn right at the end of the 200 yards on there is a similar supermarket but they have a massive choice of fresh meat and cheese. Opposite this supermarket is a fish monger with the FRESHEST fish straight from the boat!! This is all within a 5 minute walk from the villa so position A. Within this distance is probably a dozen bars a restaurants. A couple of recommendations is the brothers bar and restaurant, bar a lagosteira (best), and also the piri piri restaurant at the end of the road in the Pine Cliffs resort, all very good.

My summery is this is a great villa in a great location (15 minutes to Vilamoura and albufuira) We have a very chilled relaxing stay with very few issues and none which weren't sorted.
I would highly recommend this villa.
