Why you should visit Pine Cliffs Resort this Spring
This vast multi-property Luxury Collection resort at the top of a soaring red sandstone cliff surrounded by aromatic pine woods is a family favourite, with something for all ages. The amazing facilities on offer here include a nine-hole golf course, an Annabel Croft tennis academy, a state-of-the-art, 1,000sq/m spa, a private lounging area on iconic Falesia Beach, and a huge kids’ club and children’s village with two life-size pirates’ ships.
Twelve bars and restaurants means there’s something to fit all moods and tastes, with offerings including the casual O Grill family restaurant in a secluded spot overlooking the golf course and the swimming pool of the Residence, with a buffet plus full American breakfast in high season.
In Easter, weather on the sun-drenched Algarve is balmy, with temperatures averaging around 20°C (17° in the sea) and occasional showers but little rainfall –perfect for those who don’t necessarily want the heat of high summer. Among other reasons for staying at the Pine Cliffs Resort this spring are:
Its huge array of accommodation options, including villas
