This resort is blissful. Just had a 5 night break and we had a brilliant time. The apartment was clean and they came twice in the 5 days we were there to change towels and clean. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. The bus that takes you into town is free and the swimming pools are great. If... More

We visited the coffee shop at the entrance to this resort for lunch and a drink and all I can say is fabulous food! The Italian crepe was superb - fresh cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and ham, the tuna and olive pizza and the tuna wrap were both excellent -fresh and plentiful and a decent price (pizza €9.50, crepes €8 and...

This is a fairly large resort, and indeed can seem more like a small village as it has several streets and mini roundabouts. There are villas and apartments aplenty and the resort is close to the sea. There is even a nearby lighthouse which shines its beam on many balconies once it starts getting dark. There’s an onsite restaurant (O’Farol... More

To start with my partner and I are biased as we have an apartment on the complex. But the reason we bought it is that we love it here! It was peaceful and we were able to go at our own pace and walk around by the lighthouse unhindered. Food is always good staff always friendly and our apartment is... More

We found the people very polite, staff very helpful, we got the room request for a higher level with a balcony. We did initially find the room smelled a little musty, but still clean. The apartment had everything you would expect in the kitchen, washing machine, cooker etc... We stayed half board and used the O Farel Restaurant for our... More

We have just returned from our holiday at Rocha Brava, Carvoeiro. Our 2 bedroom villa was wonderful, spacious, clean and well equipped. The grounds are very well maintained and all the staff were very helpful and polite. As it was the week before Christmas the pools were too cold to swim in, but there were plenty of beaches within a... More

This was my second trip to Rocha Brava and everything was the same as the previous year. Service is great, the facilities clean and tidy and the weather consistently warm. I like the bars around the site which are reasonably priced and serve nice meals as well. The pools are excellent, the gym and tennis courts clean and reasonably priced-... More

This village is excellent if you are looking for something quite traditional. A mixture of around 400 properties ranging from small apartments to large villas with private pools. It offers good facilities with its own restaurant,shop,cafe,pools,tennis court and gym. It sits ontop of the cliffs about 3km outside of Carvoeiro which you can reach via the shuttle bus , or...

This is the third time we have stayed at Rocha Brava, the last time about 15 years ago. This stay was wonderful, the apartment was excellent with all facilities we could have wished for, (except the wifi in our apt was very weak, probably due to our particular location). Beautifully and discretely maintained grounds, daily cleaning and bed-making, helpful, friendly... More
