I have just returned from 4 nights at Pine Cliffs. We stayed in a Premier Grand Deluxe Room with Resort view. Room no 22.
There have been a number of reviews which have stated that the staff were surly, rude,dismissive etc.
My experience could not have been so different. The Staff at Reception were polite,informative & helpful. All the staff were polite and friendly. I did not come across one person with a bad attitude.
Room 22 was very well appointed. Fabulous bathroom, lovely bed, nice terrace with 2 very comfortable loungers with a lovely view of the garden and quiet. Whisper quiet and efficient Air conditiioning!
We ate in the Corda Cafe,O Grill and the Beach Club. All served very nice food. We had Sunset drinks in the Mirador/Champagne bar where the service was also exceptional.
As mentioned in other reviews there are plenty of sunbeds and areas of natural shade to sit. We stayed mainly by the O Pescador pool.
We played 9 holes of golf on 3 occasions. The course is very well kept, the greens were " fast" and we avoided the 6th Hole,not having the confidence to land on the Green!
The beach is long and my one criticism is that the Sunbeds and shading should be upgraded so that people are not packed in like Sardines.I did not use the beach as the sunbed area did not look appealing to me. Great beach for power and sunset walks.
