My husband and I visited the hotel for a cocktail while staying in the area simply because we're not fans of English/Irish style bars and the resort doesn't offer much else in the line of bars! On entering this hotel I was impressed by the prominent water feature which runs through the ground floor of the hotel, the bar and...

We stayed here for a week in mid October. At first we were really impressed with everything about the hotel. It is beautifully situated. Lovely grounds overlooking the sea and a very nice pool. The hotel looks pretty from the outside and very impressive inside with a long full height central hall with a impressive long water-feature with fountains running...

Just returned from 11 days at the Oriental and as always we had a great holiday. Lovely balcony, clean towels every day, clean bedding and excellent maid service. At breakfast plenty of choices. Staff all friendly and helpful. We will be back next year for the 4th year.

Dear Guest, We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our service in the restaurant. We do not realize why you have found our food so poor as in the same period we had many other guests without any complaints. We will surely try to improve and hope that you may give us another opportunity to prove...

A beautiful hotel with luxury rooms. Fabulous views to the beach and everything you need onsite. Luxury sunbeds and fluffy towels for the pool and modern shower room with special toilitries. It is lovely and quiet as there is no late entertainment. They even provide service to your sunbeds by the pool. Good buffet breakfast too.

We were welcomed with a choice of drinks and the cases were dropped off to our rooms. I never have a ground floor room whilst abroad but we were put into one and I was pleasantly surprised. Very clean, with fantastic sea views, large tv, little kitchenette with fridge and microwave, plenty of mirrors to get ready by, lovely shower....

This hotel is beautifully positioned on top of the cliff at Praia da Rocha overlooking the beach and sea. There are 56 steps from the hotel gardens down to the beach and the boardwalk. The gardens are mainly grass and are big with plenty of room and plenty of sunbeds. Our room was on the 4th floor with a big...

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback, it is very important to us as it allows us to improve. We regret that the presentation of other guests at dinner time have caused you discomfort. It is true that we do not have a mandatory dress code to attend the restaurant at dinner time since there was never any embarrassing situation...
