Family Stayed June 2018
The Ocean Suites at Pine Cliffs provide truly 5* accommodation - they are newly built so lovely and modern and very well equipped. The resort has a great range of activities on offer (spa, golf, tennis, gym) as well as several outdoor swimming pools (just a shame none of them are heated!). The kids club is also a great bonus and covers a huge area.
The Pedersen Family, April 2017
We had a formidable family vacation, 5 adults and 1 kid. Everything was nearly perfect, even the weather :-). We had ONE minor problem, and it was solved in a minute.

The Ocean Suites have been newly built as a luxury range of suites with premium level service including butler service, valet parking, and in-room luxury family amenities. The three-bedroom suite is made up of two interconnecting suites - a one bedroom and a two bedroom Ocean Suite.
Inside, your generously sized suite will be decorated in neutral tones with big bedrooms and open plan living spaces for flexible family living. There is a huge king-size bedroom with its own seating area and en suite bathroom, and a twin bedroom opposite a family bathroom.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed with an integrated en suite bathroom, separated by a glass sliding door; it has an oval free-standing bath tub and a separate loo and shower.
Your private terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy an evening drink, and your suite is kitted out with a kitchen so little ones can eat at any time.
These suites have inland or resort views but you can request an Atlantic View or Garden Access suite at an additional cost. We'll do our best to accommodate your view, but we cannot guarantee availability, particularly during peak season.
The Ocean Suites share their own swimming pool and toddler pool, perfect for splashing and playing.
Beyond this, the resort has several other pools and plenty of gardens so the whole family can be entertained all week.
Pine Cliffs has a wide range of leisure facilities but the real star of the show is the 7000 square metre children’s village, Porto Pirata, that little ones will love.
The outdoor playground has two huge wooden pirate ships, which have an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean – just like a real ship.
The children’s village is also home to a playground, toddler pool, a bouncy castle and a range of activities including mini-golf, which the whole family can play. There is even a separate pool just for remote control boats!
There are daily supervised sessions at Porto Pirata, so you can let the little ones have fun while you relax; there are half and full day sessions available at a cost. Activities are organised by age and include finger painting, treasure hunts, arts and crafts, face painting, water games and sporting activities. Subject to seasonal opening.
But don’t worry, even if you’re not looking to use the kids’ club, you can visit the pirate ships with your little one and supervise them playing; there are also loos in the pirate ships so you can play for hours.
If there are older kids in your party too, there is also a seasonal Junior Club, open to ages eight to 13 years old, which runs supervised activities including mini-golf, football, crossbow and aim shooting.
Pine Cliffs resort is right on the beach, with access down to Falésia Beach via a glass lift; once you get down there, you’ll be able to see the stunning gouged red cliffs which shield the beach from winds.
The beach is fully equipped with sun shades, loungers and towels for guests, and you can take a trip to Beach Club, which serves sandwiches and snacks, as well as ice creams.
Restaurants and Bars
Pine Cliffs is home to 11 bars and restaurants, offering a dining selection from poolside snacks to gourmet meals, with a range of kids’ menus on offer.
Choose between poolside snacks at Corda Café, lunch at O’Grill, a bite to eat on the beach at Beach Club, themed breakfast and dinner buffets at Jardim Colonial, golf course-side snacks at Pine Cliffs Clubhouse or tapas and wine at the Tapas Club Bar.

Please note, restaurants are subject to seasonal opening.
Activities for Parents
If the kids are enjoying themselves at the children’s village, then you’ll have some time to enjoy by yourselves; how you choose to spend it is up to you but Pine Cliffs has many choices.
The Health and Fitness Club is newly renovated, open for ages 16 and up. Inside, there is an indoor swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, three massage rooms and a beauty salon; you can treat yourself to massages, manicures, pedicures or get your hair styled for a special evening meal.
Pine Cliffs is also known for its golf course, which is home to a Golf Academy. Other onsite leisure facilities include tennis and water sports.
You’ll have all you need to keep you entertained at Pine Cliffs from the pools to the beach but if you fancy a day trip out, head to Zoomarine Algarve, which is a marine centre and aquarium, where you can play and learn. It is a 20 minute drive from the resort.
There are several tours and talks including the dolphin presentation, tropical birds presentation and birds of prey presentation, which adults and kids alike will love.
