The combination of the Algarve’s reliably sunny climate and Pine Cliffs’ relaxed atmosphere and excellent facilities makes this a great choice for a short-haul family holiday.

Regularly voted Portugal's best resort, Pine Cliffs is a five-star, family-friendly resort on the Algarve coast, easily reached via Faro. For children, there's one of the best kids clubs in Europe, linked to other parts of the resort by a mini-train and complete with a pirate ship playground, two pools (one for swimming, one for remote-controlled boats), an 18-hole mini-golf course and a bouncy castle. For older children, there's also a juniors club offering activities such as football, volleyball, basketball and archery. Things to do beyond the resort include exploring the nearby town of Albufeira.

For parents who happen to be keen golfers, beginner or otherwise, Pine Cliffs is ideal. As well as the nine-hole course - with its wonderful Atlantic views and famous par 3 across a chasm in the cliffs known as the 'Devil's Parlour' - there is a golf academy staffed by a team of professionals. Here you can practice your driving, pitching and putting or have your swing analysed with the help of the latest teaching technology.

A panoramic lift takes you down the cliffs to the resort's long sandy beach - the only one in the Algarve classified with a Golden Flag by the European Union - where watersports including sailing, windsurfing, body-boarding, kayaking, waterskiing and pedalos are available.

At mealtimes, Pine Cliffs leaves you spoiled for choice, with a dozen options ranging from a beach bar to gourmet restaurants. The rented apartments are also equipped for self-catering, an increasingly popular option.

A family-friendly hotel with a Champagne Bar? Yup, and once the children are tucked up in kids clubs or bed, there’s no better place to watch Atlantic waves rolling on to the beach below.
