“An ideal place for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 14 August 2009

We have just come back from a 2 week holiday at Pinhal Do Sol and found it a beautiful location to stay at...
Before we set off we read a few reveiws on the internet and to be honest we were a bit apprehensive about going,but to our surprise on arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly,giving us information about Quarteira and Vilamoura (the nearby villages) and their bus service (although there are only a few busses a day,it was enough as they were at good times).
Our rooms were always kept immaculate,the cleaning service was excellent.
I can't understand why there were so many complaints about the food as for the price they offered a wide variety of food which was delicious and to a very high standard...(i put on so much weight!!! LOL)...Although we were only b&b we spent most of our nights eating at the hotel restaurant as for 11 euro the buffet was great!
I do agree that the hotel was a bit out of the way but if you are looking for a hotel in the centre then that's your own responsability to check out the location before you book a hotel...they also offer car hire...for those who enjoy peace and quiet and relaxing it's ideal...although even being a bit out the way we managed fine with the bus service.
We went for dinner a few nights in Vilamoura (beautiful place,highly recomend!!) and simply got a taxi back which only cost aprox. 6 euros...we also booked many trips through the hotel and a bus came to pick us up and take us back right outside reception...
The pool area was relaxing,mabie they could do with a few more loungers but over all nice.
There was entertainment most nights...look out for Elvis!!!....was good fun and we had a good laugh.
Personaly i really enjoyed my stay at Pinhal Do Sol and would go back again.

We had a lovely holiday here and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is set in really beautiful settings and surroundings.
You do need to hire a car as you are quite a distance from any shops etc....
The hotel was clean and the rooms were comfortable, The weather was fantastic and had many days laying by the beautiful pool and the beaches.
I would certainly return to this Hotel, and a visit to Villamora Marina is a must however to eat there is quite expensive.

We arrived at 10:30pm so there were no buses running at that time. There is no public transport from Faro Airport to the hotel after 7pm so you will need a taxi for around 27 Euros. On arrival the staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly.

The surrounding area is a bit isolated but very tranquile and the service at the hotel is excellent. The room was a double room and was very spacious and clean. The breakfast was excellent and had a variety to choose from. The hotel provided a free shuttle bus to the town and Villamora.

I would recommended this hotel as it is very reasonably priced and we had a thouroughly enjoyable time for the 2 nights we spent there.

We have just returned from a week at this hotel. From reading other reviews was a little apprehensive. To be honest it was really nice. We like a nice quiet location as a base and this was perfect. We paid extra for a superior room and this was huge, with tea coffee facilities and a small fridge with ice box. We opted for b&b and this was always very nice, cold ham and cheese etc and also hot choice of bacon and scrambled egg or sausages and mushrooms. Plenty of toast and rolls etc. There was also cereals and fruit. I think a car is essential unless you want to go on the shuttle bus or taxi.
We chose to have lunch by the pool and whilst there was not much choice, the ham and cheese sandwich was always fresh and tasty.
The staff we encountered were pleasant and friendly . one small prob was that drains were a bit smelly in room. but rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless.

Hotel kept very clean, staff were excellent, food was good, free bus took 10 minutes to
beach and marina. Hotel was reasonably quiet which was a plus for us. We would not hesitate in returning to Pinhal Do Sol.

The hotel is like its out of the 70's, the staff were generally okay, the rooms are fine. The place is spotless, couldnt fault the cleaners and the domestic staff.
The breakfasts were okay and the lunch was edible but the evening meal was poor, its was like school dinners.
The amazing thing was that some people were paying for it, we were all inclusive. The drinks were okay if you drink the draught beer but the spirits were local and a bit nasty. I saw the bottle of vodka they were giving us in the supermarket for 5 euro ( about £4) , not exactly top quality. If you are going to stay there do yourself a favour and rent a car.

Can't fault it... great place to relax and wind down. Clean rooms, great Portuguese food, 2 nice pools(if a bit cold :o) ), friendly staff, free bus shuttles - the holiday is what you make it! We definitely will be back!

Anyone who has had a problem with this Hotel needs to really consider the package they are paying for - it is exceptional value for money.

Watch out for Portuguese Elvis... you'll never see anything like it.

Perfect 3* Hotel.
