The Sheraton Algarve Hotel at Pine Cliffs Resort has been awarded a 2015 Orbitz Worldwide Best In Stay Elite Award. The Orbitz Best In Stay Awards honour nearly 400 top-rated hotels in 125 popular destinations based on reviews by Orbitz Worldwide consumer brand (, ebookers, and HotelClub) customers. There are a maximum of just three Best In Stay winners per destination, and exceptional hotels with the highest customer rating are given special distinction as a Best In Stay Elite hotel.

Speaking about this latest accolade for The Sheraton Algarve Hotel at Pine Cliffs Resort, General Manager James Munro said: “We are honoured to have been awarded a 2015 Orbitz Worldwide Best in Stay Elite Award. We pride ourselves on our unique lifestyle experience offering and our friendly team provides the finest level of hospitality. Receiving positive feedback from our guests is so important and knowing that it’s their reviews that have resulted in us achieving this accolade makes it even more rewarding.”

Orbitz Worldwide Best In Stay Award winners are selected based on the overall numeric score of verified hotel reviews submitted by Orbitz Worldwide customers that have booked and stayed at hotels over the past year. Customers are asked to rate a variety of hotel attributes on a scale of 1 to 5, including amenities, maintenance, hotel staff, room comfort, location, and value. Those ratings are supplemented by input from Orbitz Worldwide hotel experts who factor in other market conditions, such as the number of reviews, frequency of booking and reputation of hotel staff. 

“Each day, our customers utilize the nearly two million reviews across our sites to get real-time advice from other customers on where to stay when planning vacations,” said Peggy Bianco, Group Vice President of Global Hotel Services for Orbitz Worldwide. “We are happy to once again honour the best-in-class hotels around the world that display outstanding amenities and service based on the review scores by Orbitz Worldwide customers.”
