Stayed here for 4 nights and we love it. Lovely location, quiet, with a great beachfront location and a very short walk from shops, bars and restaurants, too many burgers and chip type restaurants though. Spotless and spacious room. We found the staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was adequate with eggs, croissants, toasts, cereals etc. Overall we would... More

We stayed here for a few nights at the end of October. It is a lovely, relatively small hotel situated at the quietest end of Praia de Rocha beach. We arrived around lunchtime, before the usual check in time and were a little concerned to find the hotel doesn’t actually have a car park. There is a lay by outside... More

Just had 11 days in this hotel. As always everything was perfect. Big room with lovely balcony. Maria our cleaner was so friendly and the girls at reception were very helpful too. Have stayed before and will be back next year. Thanks to Anna and Delia at reception for their help when we changed room. Another great holiday.

Just returned from a short break at the Hotel Oriental. Situated in the quiet part of Praira da Rocha, but close to all amenities. Extremely helpful staff, clean rooms and an excellent breakfast would not hesitate to book again.

This hotel is gorgeous - the decor is beautiful - an eclectic mix of oriental and contemporary design. The staff are helpful and friendly. The service is good and the room (full Seaview) was spacious and very well appointed. It is a relatively small hotel (compared to others) but we liked the cosier feel and the unusual layout with each... More

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights in September. A great time of the year to be in Portugal after the crowds have left but good weather. After a coach tour of Northern and Central Portugal we caught a bus down to the Algarve from Lisbon terminal which we had pre booked from South Africa. It took 3 comfortable... More

Had a great week at the Oriental, relaxed and enjoyed the overall feeling of good quality rooms and public areas. Near good places to eat quite inexpensively, eg the Dolce Vita pizzeria opposite, either the all you can eat buffet, or the restaurant menu. Their crepes with ice-cream are fabulous, check out the crepe fragado (strawberry).

just back after 12 days there and we really couldn't fault the place. Position is great, breakfasts were great and our room was superb. Clean and spacious with a great sea view. Nothing was too much for the staff from booking a car hire, taxis, photo coping documents, and even finding us a tube of super glue!!!!
