I have read all of the negative reviews on here,and can honestly say I have never had a bad time at Pinhal.We have stayed here four times,and will be going again in mid October.The place is very clean,quiet(yes you get a dog or two barking on occasions,it is not persistent,and certainly has never kept me awake at night.)
We always book a one bedroom apartment overlooking the smaller pool,these get the sun on the balcony all day,and the self catering facilities are excellent.It is a 20 minute walk to the Marina,all downhill-a taxi will cost 5 Euros.
The Marina itself can be expensive,but the views of the place as you eat are worth it.The hotel restaurant has a limited menu,but the quality of the food there has improved since we first stayed six years ago-it is also cheaper than the Marina.There is also a takeaway option.
We use Jafers supermarket,5 minutes from the Marina,I have always found it to be very good value.
The weather in October has always been great,late 70s to 80 degrees most days.Enjoy!
