We have stayed in the Rocamar in 2008 and loved it so much returning this year in September. We visited Albufeira last year at a different hotel but found we were always revisting the Rocamar each day for drinks both at lunch and night time and to sit and admire the lovely views of the sea. The service, particularly in... More

Just got back from our 2 week holiday in Albuferia...All i can say about this hotel is: IT'S JUST PERFECT!!! The look, the views, the rooms, the clealiness, the location, the staff, the pool on the 3rd floor with the great beach views!!! (though it's just a small one and only 0.95 cm deep)...there are just one little "not so... More

We visted the Rocamar for a quiet relaxing break for our silver wedding and while it catered for our needs it could have been better. The rooms are clean and modern, more Travelodge style than the Ritz in size. The balcony was small but adequate. We only ate once in the reastaurant at dinner and once at breakfast. The dinners...

Just arrived back from a week stay. Hotel is in the perfect Location just a stroll down to the square and the views from hotel fantastic. We were half board but only ever ate breakfast with so many great eating places outside the hotel we never wanted to eat in. And as it was a little like a cattle market... More

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Rocamar. The staff where very helpful and friendly. The location is the strong point with wonderful views and you can easily walk into the old town. The dining room needs another manager to make the best of it. The bar is great, but too much football television spoiled the... More

Myself and my husband stayed at the Rocamar Hotel in August 2009. The rooms were lovely, but wished we had paid the extra for the sea view. Location was great, practically on the beach, and only few minutes walk from the old town. Hotel itself was very clean and well run. Breakfast was nice, but it was the same things... More

The Rocamar appears to be a nice hotel. Dont be fooled. Miserable staff -- from the front desk reception to the waiters -- ensure guests have a horrible holiday. I arrived for supper 10 minutes before the restaurant shut down only to be yelled at by a waiter, who then chased me to the buffet still screaming at me. He... More

The best feature of the Rocamar is its location. We stayed in room 118 which had a lovely view overlooking the sea. The room was fine, nothing special but perfectly adequate. The bathroom had loose floor tiles and was a bit tired looking. The balcony was small with 2 chairs, although if you sat down you could not see the... More
