Just had a short break in Praia Da Rocha - very beautiful, and a good stay at the Algarve Casino Hotel. Eating out was so so - chips with everything, until on the last night we discovered the newly opened VOC Restaurant. Food was beautifully presented and delicious - sirloin steak was melt in the mouth, with coriandered potatoes. For... More

We love da Rocha. Hotel da Rocha especially. But Jardims is also very good place to stay. Beach is fantastic. People are very friendly and sincere unlike Spain.

Praia da Rocha is one of the nicest resorts I have visited on the Algarve. It has lovely beaches and lots of shops, bars and restaurants all in the centre. Great for families

very close to the beach... wonderful views from our balcony. Algarve Mor was like a block of flats, did'nt see much of other people staying there. Would have been nice if there had been a bar or small restaurant available

Incredible how much better the weather here always was compared to 20 km inland where we came from. To actually go to the beach, you have to descend from the pier via the rocks.
