A very good hotel in top-beach location with probably the best View (with room with a balcony and a view of the sea) on the whole beach of praia da rocha, and adjacent beaches and bays of praia da luz and praia da vau To the coast at Lagos. read hotel review

    Our room with a balcony and a view of the sea number 428 was very nice And comparable to more modern hotel today's time abnormally large and comfortable. A sufficiently large bathroom in marble with tub/shower and toilet. Allegedly worn, fixer-upper rooms we can not speak. Only the floor tiles are still on a previous era back. Incomparably however, the view from the balcony overlooking the garden with swimming pool and the fantastic sea view and the praia da rocha. Since we the sliding door to the balcony never completely closed, we are in the evening with sound asleep and in the morning we woke up. The air conditioning we right on the first evening were completely switched off.

    Because of the numerous recommendations in the internet only inclusive booked breakfast, we can otherwise no rating for the hotel kitchen to deliver. After what we heard from other guests, is this however good to very good his. We remain nevertheless with the recommendation, the Restaurant with the rich offer in place and if necessary, a price advantage to a reservation with half board. In about 400 meters away there was a small market of spar. The other great Mercado there are some expensive. Breakfast in the hotel was sufficient and good. Good restaurants on site are for example the casa da rocha, both pizzeria in the immediate vicinity of, the casa del mar and the pizzeria Dolce Vita diagonally opposite the hotel.

    The pool is with about 10 times 25 meters absolute great and looks for its same on site. It is, however, only for swimmers, As he from 1.45 to 3.15 metres deep. In addition there was also a smaller pool for children. Around the pools different decks with free pool chairs and umbrellas. The pools are also in an attractive gardens integrated. Many water sports can be found through various private concessionaires liable to pay the costs at the beach. Two beach chairs with umbrella at the beach cost 1 0 €on the day. Since we in the evening regularly on the restaurant and party mile on the way were and during the day at the beach or pool, we cannot possibly entertainment of the hotels nothing say. At night, adjacent to the reception a regular mr piano music. If you like it, was in the hotel complex integrated Casino go, which 16 until 04 am opened.

  • Location

    The hotel is located in absolute top position right on the beach the approximately 1 kilometer wide praia da rocha and about 200 meters wide fine-grained Sandy beach. The mit 67% small recommendation rate to the right, for example, abut hotel oriental (mini pool, aberteuerlicher treppenabgang to the beach!) With 92% is absolutely not comprehensible. For us this hotel was when reservation with sea view and balcony our absolute best recommendation, even if it is by the architectural style (the first and oldest hotel in town) definitely more apealing hotels. The large pool is fantastic and looks for in the praia da rocha its same. The restaurant, shopping, bars and pubs from good 1 kilometer starts at all hotels in the first and 2. the beach directly behind or in front of the hotel.

The hotel is located 5 -minute walk from the touristraße away and thus always finds one a restaurant, where one could eat evenings. Good. The room was good, big enough and you have everything you need. Except a-mounted cabinet, with a few -mounted fan. Have half from the bags and half from drawers used. Clothes in schreibtischschubladen? Oh well. Breakfast was okay, was more for the english. But fruit every day. Dinner in the hotel was very expensive and we thankfully declined. Distance to the beach was perfect. But you have to with the things from the room from komplettdurchs ... hotel and at the pool past, apart from the elevator. With the mattress and umbrella rather stupid. Excursion possibilities from there, without a rental car, more difficult and the lady at reception could not do anything about, has not so good understood english. A shame! But actually it was a relaxing great holiday. Enough pocket money pack up!-) Much fun! read hotel review

The service and friendliness of the staff, as well as the cleanliness of the whole house including grounds, really impressed us. It's not the newest hotel, the decor, as well as the tv could have been a bit be modernised, but the beds are great, The breakfast buffet offered all you could ask for.

    Rooms and bathrooms getting quite old but generous in size. Furnishings functional, beds very good. Air conditioning in september only rarely used, but it worked perfectly.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    We had only breakfast. Ridiculous was waiting in line at the entrance, because its table only in the company of the maître d'hotel reserve was allowed. Drew attention to complaint to the manager improved the approach in this respect, as a 2. maitre d'hotel seconded and thereby the queue at the entrance much shortened. Quality and selection of the meals were probably highest 4 stars.

  • Service

    Friendliness was not the main feature the front desk. That also nothing that we speak portuguese. There were partly the waiters in the restaurant especially the cleaning staff better trained. The cleaning of the rooms was sometimes even in the afternoon but always thoroughly.

    As it in the last week of september not always nice was we used the (mostly empty) pool with its pleasant 24°. Internet access took a bit, worked however perfectly.

    The location is hard to beat: through the well-kept garden by the pool, some stairs down and you're on the long and broad, daily cleaned sandy beach! The atlantic was middle september surprisingly mild (felt like) 21 °, according to the bulletin stayed in the pool area only 19!?

Here we have a great beach vacation in September with almost 30 degrees Celsius worn. Very large beach with about 19 degrees Celsius warm Atlantic ocean. Very high waves then leads, also beautiful pool to use. The salt water pool was perfect and one on the free sun loungers direct sea view. The hotel is really a bit older, but very clean. Had room to the side of the road, which unfortunately especially at the weekend was very loud and unfortunately without balcony. The service was great. The small Schlender and shopping we used every night. The lots of British ... people were mostly older and pleasant. Altogether there was nothing to moan about for a very reasonable vacation. read hotel review

The ageing hotel has the charm of the 70.! It must then one of the best hotels have been, but then! Renovations were only sporadically carried out!

    The rooms are big enough. The furnishing is but also old as the hotel and therefore not excessively good and optically not in a good condition. Unfortunately we had a room to the street what not made! But the extra charge of scarcely 400, -€ for a room with sea view also worth it not!

We have a beach vacation in the five star hotel looking forward to it and in the days that concrete block at the parymeile recovered. We were very disappointed. If you would like to sleep calmly, the hotel is definitely the wrong choice. We had a room on the seaside - also here was at night partytime. The room for our son was actually the hallway - was not done!. Room very badly soundproofed. Extremely unpleasant was the fußbodenabfluss in the bathroom, from the permanently after sewage smelled. Unpleasant was the partly broken floor tiles in the room, where you ... had tried, through paint with a similar color improvement to reach. Also the chairs and sunscreens were old and faded. You have altogether the impression, that the hotel the funds for investment are missing. The breakfast room (in its ominous, totally old-fashioned decor I am not as in the airy-light summer vacation felt) was too small and it formed every morning long queues at the entrance. Super were great beach is right in front of the door and our trip in rental car to Lissabon. On the hotel I can however totally do. read hotel review

The hotel has a wonderful views of the Atlantic ocean, offers much comfort and deserves the stars absolutely. Because we in the low season traveled, were the most of the adjacent restaurants closed and you had little choice. However offers the hotel a first-class service. The location of the hotel is also very convenient to attractions such as the Cabo de Sao Vicente or Lagos in a short period of time by car to visit. All together a successful stay. read hotel review

Ideal for a beach holiday, there were enough pool chairs on the hotel terrace are available, and there to decide for yourself, whether you're in the pool or in the sea. (no clothes to the beach drag, remaining on the couch in the hotel) and in the town there is available at very reasonable pinches to shop. read hotel review

I can agree with my predecessors have told me only: all in all a good hotel. Without a rental car you can but not much, to to explore the beautiful Algarve. You should book in Germany. In Portimao it is, for example, Hertz. A trip to Lisbon is strenuous (about three hours drive) but unforgettable beautiful! Tip: hopp on-hopp-off tour, you will see the most of the beautiful city. We had booked only breakfast in the hotel. This was not very varied and very english. Big minus: the scrambled eggs was from powder and tasted terrible! It was the same ... each day, no alternation. Service and cleanliness but spotless! The restaurants and beach bars in the area offered all identical 'english' Food: burgers and co-delicious pizza in the pizzeria was it. Fish have we only get fresh in Albufeira and Lisbon. Trip tips: Lagos, Sagres, Albufeira, Monschique, old, Lisbon. read hotel review

Portugal-short get away. Have a relaxing four days on the Atlantic Ocean and with the hotel just the right place found. With a rental car from the airport only 30-45 minutes drive it. Everything was well signposted. In the hotel we were very friendly welcomed. The room was very nice, with a large balcony and a view of the ocean (I believe, all rooms facing the Atlantic Ocean). Had breakfast included in the price, which was very good-plenty of choice, prepared, the service was very friendly and even champagne, if you wanted. The wide beach could be reached over footbridges ..., which was very pleasant, since the sand was very hot. Nearby there was a shopping street with lots of little shops and restaurants. We ate lunch only ate a little, and in the evening, we went to the Casa da Rocha (Portuguese cuisine with delicious, same gem eighth sangria). Very recommendable, since not only is the kitchen was very good, but the view from the terrace overlooking the ocean. With the rental car we got during the day trips and to the south-westernmost point of Europe (Sagres) travelled. There was also the last bratwurst prior to America. Otherwise, we have long walks on the beach very much. Very recommendable. read hotel review

The hotel is large with a large heated indoor seawater pool for adults and a smaller one for kids. Everything was very clean and well-kept. Recommendation: The room with seaview. The view of the beach and the Atlantic Ocean is breathtaking at any time of day. We had booked only breakfast, which in the heat also us, as some places in the surrounding area are available and the number of restaurants to suit all tastes which has to offer. Our recommendation for delicious Portuguese cuisine is the restaurant Casa da Rocha with ever-changing table d'hote dishes at the end of ... the promenade toward Alvor. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk. The hotel guests were mostly international (British, Dutch, Portuguese etc. ) and the atmosphere was pleasant quiet and a relaxing atmosphere. read hotel review

    The hotel is in the middle of Praia da Rocha directly on the beach. The beach is directly accessible by a flight of stairs. Faro airport is about 70 km away and easily with a rental car in 45 minutes. A promenade with lots of little shops, restaurants and bars are very close. The town is relatively quiet, but on the weekend is high-life. The place itself is granted no eyes, but the view over the beach and ocean compensated everything. In the few days we have done with our rental car short day trips (e.g. B. At the end of the world in Sagres and on the west coast of Portugal, small trips to Lagos and Alvor). But most of all the walks on the 3.5 km long beach at low tide.
