And what a difference! The Hotel da Rocha is a very modern hotel (renovated in 2009), a very friendly staf and clean &... More

It is also the case that it can be somewhat pricey but if you shop around there are smaller prices to be found. One should also be weary of booking the hotel on it's own site... More

Hotel was very good, staff very friendly, my only criticism being that the hot breakfast was buffet style and it was luke warm, but the fruit and pastries were good, service brilliant, nothing too much trouble. The pool area is too small for me but beach is a short... More

The hotel is amazing so close to the beach and a short walk to the night life. The service and staff are top quality and the rooms are modern and immaculate. The pool is secure for families and nice to relax by can't wait to stay there again
