Nice adults only hotel in Praia da Rocha. Hotel room was clean and comfortable but don't get one of the newly renovated rooms as the smell of construction material is overpowering especially when you decide to go to sleep.

We booked this hotel with Jet2 based on previous reviews. Location was excellent, at the end of the promenade and close to the Marina, I would imagine in summer this is a much quieter end of the resort. We had a lovely room, plenty of space and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was ok, plenty to choose from and loads of different...
