I had wanted to stay here last month but it was too expensive. As it's now the end of the reason the prices have really come down. Hotel de Rocha is a large, modern hotel in the middle of "the strip" in Praia de Rocha, right opposite the beach, and has lots to recommend it. The staff is attentive and...

Pros: - Outstanding beach, 5 mins walk over the road from the hotel. Spacious, sandy, great waves for the kids, lots of beds and umbrellas to hire.

Room was spacious with a large bed, sofa and chair, kitchenette and large bathroom with stunning views. Breakfast was truly excellent. Pool is outdoors and the hotel has a fitness suite. English spoken and the staff were helpful but not overbearing. A short distance to the beach but there are 71 steps to contend with!

The hotel itself is in a great location in Portimao. Although it is on the main road its is about 3/4 of the way along it. It is not right beside any loud bars so is quiet compared to the others that are right beside them. It is nicely decorated and the 'double bed' is enormous and very comfortable. The...

Stayed here for one week at the end of September and couldn't have been happier. When we arrived it was only mid-day and our room wasn't ready but we just went and had some lunch and got our room about 2pm.
