The pine cliffs Sheraton is a fantastic family hotel. The hotel has
real class and if you are looking for an upmarket hotel where money is no object then I can't think of many better in Europe that cater for kids. The townhouse we stayed in was comfortable and very private. Set in beautiful grounds it offers up picture postcard settings at every turn. Then there is the beach which stretches as far as the eye can see beneath the pine tree strewn cliffs. Truly magnificent views but only for the fit an able bodied. The stairs to the beach are just manageable with a toddler on your shoulders but the lift to the top of the cliff is a welcome site. The restaurants are of a quality you would expect with prices to boot. The imported steak in the piri piri restaurant was delicious but at 49 Euros probably had its own seat on the plane.
This really is the only thing I can fault this hotel on after a thoroughly enjoyable stay. To be frank I am probably not quite wealthy enough to stomach an average of 250 euros per day to eat and play. Even the tennis (which was fabulous) was 30 euros. This in my opinion to hit a few balls with a 6year old at 7oclock at night leaves a bad taste.
Despite the cost the hotel is fantastic. It reminds me of some Italian hotels with climbing flowered wisteria in abundance and lots of perfectly tiled courtyards with painted tiled murals. If you have the cash to splash and want a short flight for kids (btw kids club 80 euros pd) then this is the place for you. I am going to have to work hard to make this a regular family jolly but have been filled with fond memories even if they were expensive ones.
