HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

This was our first trip to Portugal and I definitely want to go back! Pinecliffs was amazing. We travelled with our twin daughters (3 years old) and stayed in the residence with garden access. It was great as we could just walk straight over to the pool. I can say nothing bad about the place. The apartment was beautifully appointed...

As stated above, try not to come to this place! If you win a stay in this hotel in a lucky draw: do not come here! If you are offered a free round trip, pick up in a limo and free food and beverages: do not come here! Stay home! Go to the South Bronx or to Limerick! Service mentality...

The hotel is very, very clean, we received excellent service, the room (a simple double room) was spacious, clean and quiet. The surrounding area is green, with grass, pine trees, several plantations, extremely relaxing. You can have a walk around or simply lay down in a sunbed and enjoy the day. The beach is just below the cliffs, you can...

This hotel is a 5 stars but in this world everyone wants to be able to access internet. They would be out of business if it was in the USA. The food was great and the beach was really nice. The rooms were recently remodeled and very clean.

This is a fabulous hotel resort. We stayed for a weekend, Friday to Monday and cannot fault the facilities or accommodation.

The hotel is beautiful, with a moorish style to it with modern comfort. There are 3 pools to choose from an excellent gym and spa. The beach is beautiful with sunloungers and shade. Where they fall down like most 5*hotels is the food. Breakfast is VAST, though I felt it was more quantity over quality. The beach bar a wonderful...

Superb hotel supported by equally high quality staff and surroundings. Cliff top location is great with elevator to a walkway down to fantastic beach. Although 113 steps from elevator base to beach they are easily negotiated as only 2 or 3 steps per section and therefore easy access to beach. Onsite costs of food and drinks are a little high...

I stayed 4 nights during a conference and enjoyed my stay . Rooms are to a good standard and very clean. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel has a stunning location and staff are excellent. It is a 5 star for sure but no free WiFi means I can only give it a 4 rating
