    I have stayed there before. I find it comfortable and clean. I come to the Algarve to visit family. I also found it reasonabley priced

    the dreadfull plastic cups in the room that crack as soon as you try get them out of the wrapper

    Perfect location, facing the 'Algarve Casino Hotel', across the road from the beach. Attentive professional staff from the reception staff on arrival to the domestic ladies cleaning the rooms. Overall a great hotel and I will be returning.

    Near the beach, with a very good buffet breakfast, and excellent customer service staff.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Spacious and comfortable room, great bathroom. Breakfast was ok: good choice + different fresh fruits every day.

    I have no idea why but our bed wasn't made up even once throughtout our stay, even though the rest of the room was cleaned.

    Having the sea view was definately worth the extra few pounds, the breakfast was lovely, both continental and home foods. Staff were pleasant and accomodating. And the fact that there was someone there to check us in at 1am, which had been a concern for us, was greatly appreciated.

    I was confused that they had water bottles in the fridge that needed a bottle opener to open, but there was no bottle open in sight. Also, the mattress was very hard, and had to bulk up with blanket over blanket in order to get a decent nights sleep. Didnt see any internet access, as said in the description of the hotel.

    Excellent location and great value for money. Staff friendly and polite, hassle free check in and check out. Minor problem with room sorted without any fuss.

    Good value for money . Well situated , Good breakfast . Nice staff.

    Last two nights were noisy because there was a group of youngsters staying . They made lots of noise till very late .

  • Single

    I liked the location. the staff were friendly and helpful, especially reception

    There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. As the restaurant didn't open till late evening, there was no option but to go out to buy it. For the room rate this was not good value. Also the pillows were old and of poor quality - lumpy. Only one pillow per person and no extras in the wardrobe. The air conditioner was faulty. It seemed to just put out cold air. As it was cold outside, this was not good. The bath was not designed for anyone over 5'2"

  • Couple

    Pleasant hotel near the beach. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Surcharge e possible to get a room with the ocean view, but it is only partial. Breakfast are only average, but adequate price level of the hotel.

    Friendly personel and a very nice hotel for the price we paid.

  • Older travelers

    Central location in resort of Praia de Rocha. Parking on site, ok off season.

    Triangular shaped bedroom, no dressing table/desk, large bathroom but feet under chin when seated due to poor shower doors placement.
