This is a very well-run hotel in a beautiful spot. Good-sized attractive bedrooms which are kept very clean. Breakfast, either indoors or out, is as good as it gets with piles of fresh fruit followed by omelettes cooked on the spot. Lots of sunbeds were available either around the pools or on the lovely lawns and the cushions were thick...

Pine Cliffs is a cared-for nice resort overlooking the ocean, dramatic and peaceful, within the pine park. The hotel itself very good overall, i.e. good room size (not huge but good size and well decorated, newly upholstered furniture, large comfy twin beds with good matresses and nice pillows, armchairs), but there are areas needing an update, mainly communal corridors and...

This is a real 5 star hotel! The rooms and the grounds were beautiful. Beautiful pools and gorgeous beach.

They were friendly and extremely accomodating! Only one complaint and that...

A fabulous spot with direct access to a lovely beach, and a great relaxed hotel with friendly staff. It was my partner's birthday during our stay and they noticed that from his passport ... and left a bottle of bubbly in the bedroom for him. What a nice touch!

Beautiful hotel. Cheaper than Hilton and much much better looking. The resort is very big with two outdoor pools and an indoor pool. The view of the cliffs and beach is really spectacular. The breakfast was excellent with lots of fresh fruit and a large variety of breakfast foods including deli meats, cheese, eggs, cereal and an omelet station. You...
