Sheraton Algarve & Pine Cliffs Resort


I finally discovered a little paradise by the name of Sheraton Hotel Algarve – A Luxury Collection Hotel.

With summer showing up, we went to Algarve to visit this luxurious hotel complex, the Pine Cliffs Resort, with an area of 72 hectares over one of the loveliest beaches in Algarve, Falésia in Albufeira.

With a stunning view of the warm tones of the cliff, the golden sand of the beach and the turquoise water, the visual pallet takes us to a unique and exceptional environment with paradise touches.

This Resort is an authentic city, exquisite, clean, nicely integrated in the environment, from where its “inhabitants” hardly need to leave, with all the elegance and comfort of a luxury hotel and all the harmony of a family house, where everyone loves to spend a vacation. The Sheraton Algarve & Pine Cliffs Resort allows a vacation without chores; it has everything inside, mini-markets, a tobacco shop, a boutique, hair dresser, restaurants, bars, everything, like the Italians would say, you just have to enjoy the “Dolce far niente”.

Pine Cliffs Vacation Club

Sheraton Algarve is inserted in the Pine Cliffs Resort and has the typical architecture of Algarve with Moor influences. It has 215 rooms decorated with our traditional tiles combined with classic furniture. We stayed at the hotel and the room blew me away, besides the tiles, marbles and the wide space it had an incredible terrace with a view over the pool and the ocean, being the cherry on top of the cake. There’s no better way to wake up. As a matter of fact, every room in the hotel has its own private terrace, either with a view of the gardens or the ocean.

The complex, besides the hotel, has also the Pine Cliffs Residence, 154 luxurious suites, decorated in a contemporary and elegant style with view to the Golf course, the gardens and the mountains; the Terraces Pine Cliffs, 20 separated residences of contemporary style; the Pine Cliffs Vacation Club consisting of 78 golf suites, authentic family flats; the Pine Cliffs Village, 45 Townhouses, 14 apartments and 7 private villas; and the Pine Cliffs Villas, 3 residences with private pool and garden, located in the most peaceful area of the Resort.

I told you it was an authentic city!

Basically, the variety of the installations the Resort offers cover everything and everyone, from all the needs of a big family to the romantic ambiance for a couple getaway. And the interesting fact is that if you want you can simply buy one of these houses and have your own space all year, for whenever you need to run from the daily life stress!

Aldar – Moroccan Restaurant

As to the restaurants and bars, the visitors have a total of 9 to choose from, since the traditional Portuguese food, passing through Italy or Morocco to a more international steakhouse.

We had the opportunity to try three restaurants, the Pescador, with a view over the sea, a cozy and elegant restaurant specialized in fish and seafood; the Piri Piri Steakhouse with an excellent meat selection, from the four corners of the world and the Beach Club Pine Cliffs by Olivier, located in a privileged spot, right on top of the beach, with the cliffs as background.

Mirador – Champanhe Bar

For me, one of the best spots of the hotel is one of its bars, the Mirador, what a perfect place, what a divine view, environment, cocktails… An amazing sunset, it is without doubt a moment to hold for life. This place is easily one of the favorite spots of everyone who stays at the hotel.

But not only of restaurants and bars a vacation is made, so we were able to relax and enjoy the good life, like I like to call it, not only at the Hotel Spa, Experience Wellness at Pine Cliffs, driven by Thalgo – La Beaute Marine, but also because we enjoyed the gym, the Jacuzzi, the sauna, Turkish bath and the indoor pool with warm water in one of the Health Clubs, there are two.

Speaking of pools, there are several of them, not counting the private ones, surrounded by garden areas where we can relax in the sunbeds while we get a tan!

To those who prefer the beach over the pool, don’t worry, I warned you there was something for every taste and need, from the Resort we go down in a panoramic elevator and a staircase that take us to the beach, a truly magnificent trip, that can take a while because you stop at every step to enjoy the view that nature presents.

Because the Resort is the destiny of many families that seek for leisure, fun and peace, the hotel tries to respond to every need, therefore it has been creating more activities according to the expectations and purposes of those who go there. To the sports fans, there’s the Ténis Annable Croft academy and also, even more wanted than tennis, we have Golf, with a marvelous golf course that delights the practitioners of the sport, the jewel in the crown is the Devil’s Parlour, requiring a 198m shot over the cliff so the ball reaches the immense Green. For the starters there’s also an academy to learn how to give the first shots.

There’s also the Porto Pirata & Júnior Club, so you can enjoy everything even if you have kids. Of course many things you can do with them, but there are other you deserve to do as a couple and probably the kids won’t even want to join you when they see the club! This first place is the children paradise, a village supervised by qualified professionals, that includes two pirate boats, real size!, basketball court, bicycles, cars, a pool, a bouncy castle and mini golf, everything the little ones dream of! The Júnior Club is more appreciated by the teenagers, and there are several sports activities and challenges organized.

Everything is possible in this Resort, even getting married! Yes, imagine saying the “Yes” with the skyline on your look and the crystal blue reflex of the ocean touching the face of you loved one, making a perfect memory for all your life, it is possible here!
It is perfectly comprehensible why this paradise wins so many awards, namely the Best Portuguese Family Resort.

Well, our experience was outstanding, exciting and so unique that just now I realized that I’ve writing for hours, allowing myself to relive so particularly all the sensations I had on this small vacation.

Allow yourself to get away from the real world and live in paradise for some time… I assure you that you’ll certainly get as addicted as I was!
