I apologise for the very late review but we had a fabulous stay at this very charming property. In addition to the beautiful room with a great view of the sunset from our spacious balcony, fast wifi and good breakfast in the mornings was an added bonus during our stay. The place to stay in Praia da Rocha, close to... More

Just spent 5 lovely days in this hotel. Perfect location beside beach but also lovely pool area. Really quiet but only a stroll away from restaurants, bars and nightlife. Helpful tip: wear your flip flops when you walk through grassy area as there are a lot of honey bees feeding on the clover.

Nice hotel with great location. Rooms are big and clean. Realy a nice place to spend holidays. The beach in front of the hotel is huge and the sand is smooth. Plenty locations and atractions around but best to have a car

Parking can be a problem, but free within 5 minutes walk. We were 2 couples & booked adjacent rooms 3 months in advance. However on checkin we were told these adjacent studios were not available. Poor arrangement by management with no apology forthcoming except reluctantly by manager on duty after the weekend. Our room offered was in fact recently upgraded... More

With very friendly staff throughout the hotel and a great position overlooking the beach it is a shame that the evening buffet consisted of a choice of 1 meat or 1 fish course and 2vegetables . Cabbage as a vegetable one night and cabbage soup the next night with this as a recurrent theme. On complaining to the restaurant manager... More

This Hotel is very nice but lets itself down by not trying that little bit harder to become excellent. It in a great location, at the quieter end of the main strip in the resort, on the top of a 20m high cliff with its own private (gated) steps to the boardwalk and the beach below. The gardens and pool... More

The staff are charming, friendly and efficient. the hotel is spacious, clean and well cared for. Our room was cleaned every day and towels replenished when we left them out to do so. Breakfast was plentiful, varied and... More

We had high hopes for this hotel but it is pretty average. The staff on reception are fantastic but thats where fantastic ended. We paid for a sea frontal superior room and what we got was a roof top suit but the wall was so high you couldn't see the sea. The room was basic, the floor was always gritty... More

A small hotel with Arabian style architecture and interior design. All rooms have sea view. The staff were all extremely friendly, and made you feel special. Would certainly recommend this hotel to people who like smaller hotels and the views from the Restruant over looking the bay are stunning.
