Family (the eldest child is at school)
- Family of 4 with 2 children (6.5 yrs and 10 months). We stayed in the ocean suites with 2bedrooms. The suite was brilliant as it had a large lounge area and 2 large bedrooms. Fully equipped kitchen with washing machine, cooker, microwave, juicer, hand blender etc which made it ideal for nights when we stayed in for dinner. Everything was new and decor was modern and fresh. Bathrooms were lovely and luxurious with a stand alone bathtub in one bedroom and standard bath in the other. Ceiling rain showers in both bathrooms.
Eating at the hotel was very expensive e.g dinner for 2 adults for just 2 main courses, 2 glasses of wine and a children’s dinner was around 80+Euros upwards. Food was good quality though. We arrived on the 24th March and the hotel was very quiet and most of the restaurants were closed. Towards the end of the week most of them had opened. There are plenty of supermarkets to go - one opposite Pine Cliffs and lots of others a short drive away if you have a hire car.
There is a lot of building work going on as you enter the resort for residential apartments which is a little off putting but once you are in the hotel and grounds this can’t be seen. There was a lot of painting and general work and maintenance going on around the hotel (digging up pathways, drilling etc) as they were obviously getting it ready for the main summer season. This was a little annoying as we were unaware of this.
I am sure once the hotel finishes the building and maintenance it will be lovely. The complex is luxury but the ongoing work tarnished it a bit for us. Great beach - we only used the indoor pool as the outdoor ones were too cold.
Overall I would recommend the ocean suites - they are amazing. If you are visiting pine cliffs through April be aware of the ongoing works. Otherwise during summer I am sure it will be much nicer!
