The guest pictures we saw here on Trip Advisor before arriving do not do Pinhal da Marina justice. We have such a great appartment, spacious, clean, great situated in front of the pool.
The staff is very kind and the food is great too. There is a daily lunch Plate of the day for €7,50 including a drink. The pool area is great for kids too, we have a 2 year old daughters and she adores the pool. There is also a playground which makes it a perfect place for her.
You can choose to walk to the Marina and/or beach (20 mins) , but an Uber can pick you up in litteraly 2 mins and take you there for approx 4€
The wifi here is excellent. You have your own router in your appartment which gives a perfect connection (we brought our Apple tv and works great!)
So we visited Portugal for the first time for 3 nights to celebrate my sisters birthday, just the 3 of us. I had emailed ahead of the visit to see if they could add a little something special in the room as a surprise when we walked in, they didn’t disappoint, there was a lovely fruit bowl and bottle of wine waiting which was very nice.
The rooms themselves are large, we stayed in a 1 bed pool view room in block 62, it overlooked the main pool and the balcony is huge! The air con is great, it was just a little stuffy in the bedroom but if u leave the air con on all day with the bedroom door open it helps for sure.
Everywhere was very clean and the receptionist was lovely and friendly, the cleaners constantly cleaning The sun beds when people left, the poolside restaurant was nice, we only ate there once, we had pizzas and I have to say it’s the best pizza I’ve ever had! So fresh and tasty. We walked to vilamoura the first day as it wasn’t too hot and it was about a 15 min down hill walk. We used Uber a lot on our visit, it was only €3 euros per trip to the marina and back. Portugal is a beautiful place and can’t wait to visit again
I have been staying in Pinhal da Marina with my family for many years now and highly recommend it!
Its relaxed atmosphere, beautiful gardens, nice and attentive staff, and children friendly environment make it the ideal base for family holidays in the Algarve.
Close to Vilamoura, a number of great beaches and other holiday attractions, but far from some of the bustle of the Algarve in the summer months, it allows you to enjoy the best of what the Algarve as to offer.
