Taplow Family (with only pre-school children)
- Incredible! I had high hopes for this resort and our villa and I am pleased to say that the apartment - and everything - was even more amazing than I expected it to be. My biggest thing is cleanliness and this accommodation surpassed even my (very!) high standards. I’ve never been to self catering accommodation with such a well stocked kitchen - a blender, juicer, coffee maker, everything! It was so peaceful - another big plus for me. Very tastefully decorated. A feeling of luxury in every detail. Super practical and yet very luxurious - just perfect really! The resort is one of my favourite places I’ve ever visited - it’s so big with so much to offer and yet doesn’t have that big “packaged” resort feel. It’s quiet and relaxed with an intimate feeling to it. It’s so green and lush with courtyards, beautiful gardens, little pathways, seas views, myriad pools, shops, a delightful bakery, so many different terrains and places to enjoy. I only gave the pools a 5/10 as they are not heated so were pretty cold - even though it was 30 degrees while we were there. Even more limiting for us as we had a baby with us so couldn’t take him in. That would be my ONLY slight critique of this resort. I loved loved loved it! I can’t recommend it highly enough. I never usually look to visit the same place twice (just as there is so much world to see!) but I am definitely returning to Pine Cliffs. It was heaven - could have stayed forever! :) Finally, big shout out to the team at the on site wine shop! Make sure you go there - the staff are amazing, so many Portuguese wines to try and the prices are trade so more than reasonable!
