Editorial review:

This family-friendly resort is packed with children and is located above beautiful cliffs. There's an exclusive beach, amicable staff, and a great environment. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from, but they're not outstanding. There's a golf course, spa services, and the rooms have extremely comfortable beds. There's also a children's club that received praise.

                      The only thing good is the location next to the beach but there are a lot better hotels near by so don´t bother.

                      The hotel was very old and would need some renovation. In my opinion this is not a 5 star hotel!

                      Pine Cliffs Residence 2 bedroomed suites are exactly as portrayed on the website. Fully equipped - particularly the kitchen and utility room, even a juicer provided. Full size very comfortable beds, daily maid service, all in all superb.

                      Bar prices are a bit steep. No DVD or CD player in the room. In the shower, only one type of shower which is unusual for a 5* deluxe these days. None of these issues would put me off staying there again though. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property whatsoever.

                      Main restaurants food was very poor, not of an acceptable standard.

                      Joe in the golf shop refunding exactly 15.99 euro instead of 16.00 euro for a golf cap. For the sake of 1 cent.

                      The resort itself is superb and cannot be faulted, however the staff in the entire resort make this hotel what it is with their friendliness and efficiency Thank You

                      Luxurius residences, beautiful location, amazing 9 holes golf on the cliffs, fantastic breakfast, very friendly staff. Large indoor pool and several outdoor pools.The seasons starts on April 1th, so the beachclub was closed. It was a 15min. But very nice walk from our residence to breakfast in the main hotel.

                      We had a disagreement about breakfast beeing invoiced to us (690 euros) in spite of it beeing included in the Booked.net arrangement. According to them their contract with Booked.net is without breakfast. After some discussion it was arranged to our satisfaction. Still this is something which needs to be solved between Booked.net and pine cliffs residences

                      The location is fantastic and the grounds are gorgeous. Also, the food at the restaurants was very good.

                      There were a few small things that were not up to what we were expecting for a luxury 5 star hotel. Air conditioning seemed to make the room hotter, so we slept with the doors open. Not all the restaurants were open even though we were paying for peak season. We were told some were seasonal, so the hotel has a different idea of peak. No complimentary water. Most hotels these days provide this, and seeing as this was a beach resort, we found it very odd that they didn't provide them in your room for after a hot day. Service was inconsistent.

                      Luxury apartment was superbly equipped, hotel facilities were excellent, breakfast outstanding, extremely courteous and helpful staff, kids loved indoor pool and access to the beautiful beach was first class by way of a lift and private stairs

                      It took us over an hour whilst in the complex, to find where to book in, the reception was closed, the ground staff gave us wrong directions but help came through the sales office who directed us correctly. During the low season you have to book into the Hotel reception which, had it have been made clear on our booking, would have saved some time and red-faces! - but the apartment more than made up for this error! We had a great time.

                      We visited just 'pre-season' and were extremely fortunate to have clear blue skies and sun bathing temperatures in early March so lying by the various pools was delightful. The rooms are spacious, the setting around the hotel compound is a landscaped country park which is fabulous and very peaceful.And the beach is spotless.

                      The apartment was big, modern,comfortable and spotlessly clean. Kitchen bigger than expected and very well equipped. The grounds around the hotel are huge and immaculately kept. All the staff were courteous and friendly and breakfast was fab. We travel a lot and have stayed in many hotels around the world and this rates amongst the best ever.

                      Paying 15 Euros a day for internet. Grrrr

                      Location, beach and gardens

                      Service far too slow and ineficient, understaffed; kids club needs improvement to make it more appealing; no recycling and not very environment friendly; tighter security over who accesses the resort.

                      We Stay at the Pinecliffs resort every year for the past 10 years and we have always found the staff friendly efficient and more than willing to be of assistance. A beautiful resort for all age groups. Can't wait for our next visit, Breda Hague

                      If you go out of season too many resturants and facilities in the resort closed

                      Very big hotel, so there is a lot of people. There was a queue at breakfast. The hotel looks like turkish or egyptian beach hotels.
