Pine Cliffs Hotel, Albufeira, Portugal
The rambling, vast Pine Cliffs Resort in the Algarve has plenty on offer for its guests. First and foremost, it's perched on astonishing red rock cliffs that fringe the public beach. This beach is just below the resort and a lift takes you directly there, plus, lots of rooms have views out to the Atlantic Ocean. The resort not only has the hotel but also villas and town homes which are privately owned. There is a golf course, tennis courts, spa, and a range of restaurants for every culinary taste imaginable. The service is impeccable with friendly helpful staff. Décor is all about subdued pale colours with a few blue tile references thrown in for good measure. Nothing is overblown.
Your expert reviewer
An off-piste jeep safari adventure into the countryside is amazing, particularly in spring, when the almond trees are out in bloom.

Style & Character
This hotel is ideal for active, outdoor couples and for families. There is a whole range of activities including golf, tennis, and swimming. It's also very quiet. The view out to the sea, framed by pine trees and bathed in sunshine, is incredibly relaxing.

We love that the staff here want you to have a truly Portuguese experience, offering espresso coffees and lovely sweets like pastel de nata.

With the rain shower feature in the separate shower room and large bathtub, the bathrooms are well laid out. Without a doubt, the balconies are the best feature though, with comfy loungers, privacy and views out to the ocean. Bliss.
