Just returned from an 8-day stay at Pinhal da Marina. A fabulous holiday made extra special by the remarkable reception staff- Claudia and Carmen. They really went the extra mile when we were struggling to book a day trip to Fiesa (amazing sand sculpture park- well worth a visit). They ended up making a number of phone calls on our behalf and then booked the travel for us! Such stars.
We requested a quiet ground floor room and got exactly that. The apartments we were in were exceptionally well sound-proofed and I can honestly say I did not hear a single voice from the apartments either side of us for the whole holiday. The views through the pine forest out to the sea are delightful. We were also given free safety box use during our stay and all kit for tennis, petanque etc, were also free.
We only ate at the restaurant once but it was absolutely delicious - a cod, potato and egg dish. A large selection of leftover holiday novels are available in the restaurant, and outside, free use of leftover buckets spades and armbands. It all felt very home from home.
The downside? The walk to the nearest supermarket, town, and beach :-(. A better map would have made our first day a lot easier.
Overall a five-star stay.
