Masks had to be worn inside and sanitizers were everywhere. That is the good part. Service was poor, this is not five star, bordering on 3 to 4 star. I would say it is probably understaffed. It can take you 15-20 minutes to buy a €5 ice cream as there is only one till at the clubhouse by the pool and if it is being used you have to wait. A meal on the first night was a farce, a bottle of wine was ordered which never arrived until we asked again, a beer never arrived at all. Mayonnaise was requested twice as was cheese for the bolognaise. You cannot get a drink after 11pm so if you have a night out in Vilamoura and fancy a nightcap when you return you are out of luck and sent to bed. I know COVID has had its effect but expect queues out the door at popular times for breakfast and it is not self service. I stayed in the hotel where you have paper cups for tea or coffee in the room. Plastic cups in the bathroom which I used for a soft drink were never replaced. We even had to ask for a toilet roll. On checkout I mentioned my displeasure and all they did was offer me a complimentary lunch which didn’t include a cup of tea. Needless to say I will not be returning to Pine Cliffs.

The setting is unbelievably beautiful. And the staff at this resort is unparalleled in the service they provide. Paula assisted us when we checked in. She is the personification of hospitality! I hope to return one day.
