About Cheryl Smith from www.GreatHolidayLocations.com

Our first visit to the Algarve was in 1998 when some of the main roads were still dirt roads.

The area reminded us of Africa, where we are from, so we made the Algarve our main holiday destination and we have returned every year, some years on multiple occasions visiting various parts of the Algarve.

We have stylish and child-friendly luxury holiday rental apartments privately owned at the Sheraton Pine Cliffs resort or our country retreat villas in the Algarve. There is something for every one from a one bedroom apartment on the beach sleeping 4 to an upmarket luxury country villa in Silves that is spacious enough to accommodate two or three families comfortably.

Cheryl Smith from www.GreatHolidayLocations.com purchased this apartment in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in the 1 bedroomed appartment in Pine Cliffs twice. It was so good the first time we went back a second time. The appartment with ac is fully equiped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bedroom is very spacious and bed very comfortable. We did a mixture of self catering and eating out as eating on the site can be expensive. The appartment is situated at the entrance to the resort so is very handy for the large supermarket outside the complex. It is also very peacful there with a small terrace and outdoor BBQ which we have used alot. We have eaten in all of the restaurants on site at various times and while they can be expensive there is a good choice, with the self service buffet particularly good value. The resort its self is in a wonderful location with stunning views over the ocean. The beach is immaculate and towels are provided to guests. The wide variety of pools and restaurants and the many sporting activities such as golf and tennis and the junior club make this an ideal family holiday. My idea of heaven is sipping champagne at the champagne bar watching the sunset. We would definitely recommend this apartment and can't wait to go back again.

A wonderful relaxing week and a top resort!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful week with my family (Girl aged 13 and boy aged 8). We did not do any of the kids clubs that were available mainly due to not having enough time, but could tell that a lot of the kids seemed very busy with clubs and sports that were held in the resort. All the pools were outstanding with very comfortable sun loungers and plenty of them too. The restaurants were also lovely Piri Piri being our favourite. The apartment itself was quite large with a lovely big bed in the bedroom. Bathroom was also a good size with two sinks and a bath/shower. Kitchen is fully equipped and my favourite is the washing machine so you can keep on top of the laundry without it getting out of hand. Large sofa bed in the living room for the kids with plenty of spare bedding. Towels were also in great supply. No need to take pool towels either. The balcony area is small but is well equipped for bBBQ and seating for four. No sunbathing on there though. The owner of the property stayed in touch with us right up until before we left and is very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend this property due to the resort as you are hardly in the apartment. I would return to this apartment.

Fantastic holiday destination for kids and adults

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Cheryl's one bed apartment about 2 weeks ago and had a fantastic time. The apartment itself is great - it is really spacious and has everything you could possibly want from an apartment, ie. dishwasher, washing machine, telly (with Cbeebies - a must for all families with wee ones!) and dvd, and it was totally geared up for little ones, even providing socket covers to keep them safe! The apartment is only a short walk to the beach/pools/kids play area and it's also a short walk to the nearest supermarket/restaurants external to the resort, so it's in the perfect position really.

The resort itself is lovely - 5 star luxury and very well kept. There are numerous pools to choose from, both outdoor and indoor, heated and unheated, with kiddie pools adjacent. The quality of the facilities is great, and the beach is a beautiful, sandy beach (great for hours of sand castle building!) with a great beach bar/restaurant.

In short, this is a great holiday choice for people looking for something that caters both for children as well as adults, whilst retaining the quality and luxury that you're looking for when treating yourself to a holiday. It would of course be a great holiday choice for just adults too, but it offers lots of great activities to keep wee ones entertained.

Highly recommended!!

Great for young kids

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday with a 2 year-old. Comfortable apartment in a child-friendly resort. Choice of pools, clean beach and plenty of bars/restaurants nearby. Hotel bars and restaurants were pricey but there are plenty of others in walking distance. Hiring a car meant that we could venture around the area but it was not essential. We'd love to go again.

One bedroom apartment pine cliffs village Algarve

  • 4 of 5

This resort is superb. It is a large, clean & pretty complex with several swimming pools & restaurants. There is a kids playground, kids club, crazy golf & a large smart adult golf course.

At one end of the resort is a large grass area with sun beds & pine trees near to the cliff top with a cocktail bar, plus a lift & stairs which takes you to a lovely soft sandy beach.

Pretty much, all what you need for a wonderful holiday, is all here on this resort?

This one bedroom apartment is a great size property throughout which benefits from a through reception room & a private roof terrace. The property is well located within the complex.

Comfy, well equiped Pine Cliffs Apt.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days with our 1 1/2 year old in this spacious 1 Bedroom near the main entrance to Pine Cliffs. Within walking distance to pools, playgrounds, golf, restaurants and totally quiet, it was an ideal place to have a baby who needed her afternoon rest. The kitchen was totally equipped,

and the covered terrace was a perfect place to take refuge from the sweltering late August heat...the A/C worked like a charm when needed.

Kid friendly, comfy and well located...like a vaction should be!

A8C Pine Cliffs

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for 2 weeks in April 2010 and enjoyed it so much we are going back there in the summer. The property is very comfortable and contained everything we needed. The apartment was very clean, there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows, a good sized fridge-freezer and sun loungers to sit outside.

The apartment provides a lovely cool haven from the heat of the sun and I loved the fact that from the sun lounge all you can see is the tree tops, so you can imagine being hundreds of feet up in the air.

The train around the resort is just outside and the apartment is a 10 minute walk from the Sheraton's pools and restaurants, golf course and of course the walkway to the wonderful beach.
