stayed at pine cliffs over Easter. Sport facilities are good AND EXPENSIVE but it feels like they do not trust their clientele at all which is very surprising given the cost. Tennis courts really expensive per hour, towels need to leave a card to ensure they get them back, can only get 1 towel per person. Kids club and junior club is beyond uninspiring and a rip-off. Supervised football 14 per head, every activity has to be paid for. Equipment in the arcade shabby, table tennis bats broken etc. when we asked , we were told it was run by an outside company , too much info, client just wants it sorted.
All the restaurants are dark, 2 are in the basement which makes no sense considering people are getting away to the sun.
The shops are quite useless, I didn't see anyone in them while I was there and it looks like they bought the stock 20 years ago.
It's a shame to waste the facilities here as they are fantastic but a decent overhaul could double the occupancy,
Not a patch on the equivalent hotels in the US or Caribbean.
