  • About this holiday

    On the coast of the Algarve, Pine Cliffs Resort is an intimate and sought-after destination in Portugal.

With a fantastic location, and a range of facilities, Pine Cliffs Resort is well-suited to long, relaxing holidays on the coast, which provide guests with ample opportunity to explore more of Portugal's famous Algarve.

    Our opinion

    As a Luxury Collection property, Pine Cliffs Resort offers outstanding accommodation in an enviable position on the seafront of the Algarve.

    Hotel description

    Overlooking miles of pristine beaches, the Pine Cliffs Hotel and Resort is located in a magnificent cliff-top position, surrounded by pine trees. This impressive resort combines classic Portuguese architecture with Moorish elements, such as blue tiling and arched doorways. This design produces interiors that are light and airy, luxuriously appointed with grand columns and marble floors. Terraces spread out from the hotel towards the ocean and lead to one of the resort’s five swimming pools, which is set amongst landscaped gardens scattered with graceful fountains. A broad variety of facilities enables guests to indulge in both relaxation and active pursuits, such as golf at the compact, yet challenging, 9-hole course near the Atlantic Ocean. A variety of watersports are also available at the beautiful Falésia beach, which is reached via panoramic elevator and a footpath that crosses the cliffs. The resort’s nine restaurants include excellent fresh seafood beside the pool at O’Pescador, and grills and light meals overlooking the ocean at the Beach Club. Guestrooms are large and have been furnished in pale, graceful colours. A hand-painted Portuguese ceramic tile bed top is an opulent addition to each room, and adjoining terraces provide ample space to enjoy the scenery over breakfast. Perfect for an active beach holiday.
