Located on a cliff facing the Atlantic, a large green park and encircled by a nine hole golf course. The Pine Cliffs Hotel is well designed for outdoor lovers. Other good points : smiling, efficient service and varied, quality catering service.

    Location 4.0 /10

    The Pine Cliffs is located at Albufeira 22 miles west of Faro international airport (a half hour by car). To go there, take National road EN 125 towards Albufeira until a crossroad (BP gas station on the right). Then turn left to enter Albufeira. Go straight towards Olhos d'Agua, then follow the "Falesia Beach" sign until you see the sign for the hotel.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The 215 rooms, 34 m˛ for "Classic", 56 m˛ for duplex suites, can accommodate up to three people. They are comfortable and perfectly equipped (central air conditioning with thermostat, satellite television with 29 channels, extra domestic channel broadcasting 4 movies per day, a large electronic lock safe, a telephone with direct key access dial to reception, room-service and dry cleaning, full minibar, bathroom with welcome products, bathrobes, slippers, hair dryer and separate toilets). The head of the bed is tiled with azulejos, but the very international standard impersonal furniture is disappointing. Large terrace with table and armchairs. The hotel also recently opened a new Ocean Suites area, comprised of 148 bedrooms and 76 apartments.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    The Pine Cliffs Hotel has several two floor white buildings in an eastern mudejar style. All have views on the gorgeous park planted with maritime pines and whose lawn is as worthy of appreciation as the nine-hole golf course encircling the property. The reception in the form of a large white patio with moucharabieh windows extending to a large tiled patio with yellow and blue azulejos, is surrounded by a gallery leading to restaurants, shops and the garden. The whole setting is spacious with pleasant fountains and a total of seven swimming pools, both indoor and outdoor. At the Pine cliffs, there is room to breathe and to take the air. To add to its services and facilities, the resort has recently opened several new shops, including clothing boutiques, wine and golf shops, a pharmacy and a hairdresser.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    In all the hotel has 11 restaurants and bars throughout the resort. They serve food such as Portuguese, Moroccan and seafood specialities, along with the main restaurant which serves buffet-style international cuisine and four bars. The evening buffet also lets you sample Algarvian, Spanish and Italian dishes. The dishes are healthy and superbly presented. You could also say the same thing for the breakfast buffet which has a diverse choices of delicious cakes and homemade croissants, fresh fruit salads, fruit juice, and omelets prepared on request. The latest restaurant, Zest, offers healthy vegan options, as well as fruit juices. As for bars, remember "the Mirador" on the terrace overlooking the cliff facing the Atlantic.

    Spa

    The hotel has recently opened a spa as part of its offering. Serenity, The Art of Wellbeing is a 1000m2 space with 12 treatment rooms, an interior swimming pool, a jacuzzi, hammam, sauna and communal relaxation areas.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    Across from the hotel, surrounded by ochre cliffs, the splendid beach, 600 m long, is pleasantly equipped with deckchairs and sunshades, and, in the high season, a snack bar. Its crescent shaped configuration makes the place difficult to access and therefore reserved almost exclusively for hotel clients. A little marine base (activities are charged extra) is open from April to October. Some will find access a little bit long by elevator and a staircase that passes through a kind of canyon, covered with sand. But how beautiful it is !

    To know

    The Pine Cliffs has a well-known 9 hole golf course. The number 9 hole "Devil's Parlour" is known to be very difficult. To reach it, you have to send the ball over the cliff. Families can book a two- or three-room apartment adjoining the Pine Cliffs Vacation Club.

      The Algarve Club Med is the only club worthy of the name in the region. It is an institution with a true daily entertainment program. This sumptuous property on a cliff welcomes kids but they are not supervised.

      The Falesia hotel is a small simple hotel which will please those who want nothing more than relaxing near the pool and whose culinary and esthetical standards are not a vacation priority.

      The sprawling Balaia Golf Village is a large apartment-resort with hotel facilities, however, the founders have made sure that unlike many of these types of resorts in the region, and emphasis is placed on the resort gardens. The beautiful and well-maintained laws and colourful blooming bougainvillea, help to break up the heavy concrete structure of the establishment. Calm and pleasant with fairly good quality accommodations, the Balaia Golf Village is ideal for golfers due to its various golfing ranges as well as families and large groups of friends just looking for somewhere to spend some quality time together.

      Alisios is just two steps away from the beach, so that you almost forget the absence of an outside swimming pool. With its facilities it is more suited to couples than families.

      As soon as you enter Vila Joya's gates, the rest of the world just becomes a distant memory. Along with the Bela Vista in Portimao, the Vila Joya is the best hotel in the Algarve as far as luxury boutique hotels go. With an intimate setting and extremely high-end facilities, stunning views and direct access to its own private little beach cove, there is absolutely nothing to add to this lovely hotel. Located close to Albufeira in Praia Galé, this is the only place to stay during a holiday around Albufeira. Not really a place for children, but more of an adult haven of peace and tranquillity for spending quality time with your other half, the Vila Joya is the jewel in the Albufeira crown.

      Our favourite Vila Galé hotels in the Algarve region, the Vila Galé Praia, unlike its sister hotels, is a small hotel of 40 rooms that welcomes mainly couples due to the quiet atmosphere of the establishment. Modern, clean and comfortable as well as being just a two-minute walk to Praia Galé beach and a couple of beach restaurants serving excellent grilled fish, the hotel is one of our favourites for small budgets.
