Just returned from a week long stay at Pinhal da Marina with my 15 year old son. We stayed in a studio and I was amazed at the size of it on arrival. It was spacious and very clean - the maid service was excellent. This is a very quiet complex, situated in a lovely area of Vilamoura and I would highly recommend it for a relaxing holiday. The staff were great and the pools were excellent (not too busy). The main gates were locked at night and security guards were on patrol which made you feel secure & safe. The shops,beach and marina were about a 15 - 20 minute walk away which we did every night so it is not a problem and the closest supermarket is about a 10 min walk. There is a mini market on the complex but it did not stock a lot . All in all we had a fantastic holiday and definitely intend to go back - infact I really wished I had booked to stay longer.

The hotel can't really be faulted to any great extent.

Yes like most hotels it has faults but to pick them out would be 'nit picking' and not real relection on the staff, hotel and location.

The hotel is in a quite location, away from the main harbour centre (20 mins walk away). The hotel is located at the top of a hill, but the hill is not to much, as we walked it everday and never really noted it as an issue.

The hotel is clean and rooms well funished.

The pools are ideal for all and you can always find a quite space if you wish.

The best selling point though is the staff, who are friendly, curtious and welcoming.

I would happliy go back to the resort and stay at the hotel

Get over the rather basic accommodation on arrival and this places becomes a great base for a stay here. We are used to paying more for a stay here so found the rooms a little old fashioned however very clean and maid service excellent. 15 min walk to Marina at night is better than most places we have stayed here. Staff very helpful and friendly. Pool nice and quiet. Restaurant great for lunch but venture into town for dinner. The gardens are nice, tennis court excellent and free table tennis. A word of warning we had no washing machine which was tricky, however we had a dishwasher! We have been here for ten years and will definitely come back as it suits young families.

We had a fabulous few days staying in the Pinhal Da Marina. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the cleanliness of our apartment could not be faulted, with clean bed linen and towels provided daily. Our one-bedroomed apartment was spacious, and had a secluded outside space with sunloungers. The decor was slightly dated, but the kitchen was extremely well-equipped and we had everything we needed for our stay, including plenty of storage space, a modern bathroom, and a television with English channels. Air conditioning and a safe were included for free. The apartment complex felt very safe and was extremely quiet. The two pool areas were always quiet, although this was perhaps due to the time of year - late September. The bar by the main pool was lovely, and represented extremely good value for money throughout its drinks and snacks menu. The walk down to the very beautiful marina and beach took us around 15 minutes, although at a leisurely pace. The nearest supermarket was even closer, and it was large and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. The reception staff booked us a taxi to the market just outside of Quarteira on the Wednesday, which is well worth a visit, with the taxi journey costing around 7euros. Our trip was extremely enjoyable and relaxing, and we would recommend these apartments to couples and families, especially those who wish to save money by catering for themselves some evenings. We plan to return soon!
