We stayed here for seven nights recently and would definitely return. Its in a perfect setting with fabulous views. The beach across the road is lovely and although busy at times, its away from the commercial beach, just a short walk away. Its the perfect stay if you want to be away from the centre of everything, and still just... More

The hotel is literally on the beach, the staff are very vriendly and helpful, the rooms are cleaned daily and the pool area was the most amazing one in the whole of Praia da Rocha. The hotel is situated right... More

Pool is supurb with lots of parasols and chairs and a decent bar area serving drinks and snacks, beer 3 euro snack 6/7 euro, great for kids and couples, rooms... More

My 22 year old daughter and I have just got home from a wonderful week in Prai da Rocha. This was Mum and Daughter quality time, we spent most of our days on the beach, climbing the steps everyday has given us both well toned legs and buts! not advisable for the less able bodied though. A bit if retail... More

Hotel is clean and in a great spot for the beach and places to eat and drink. The pool is lovely. Beds are comfy although the rooms are basic . This is a great 'no frills' place to stay and I found the staff helpful and friendly. Forget breakfast - you might get a coffee/tea and piece of toast but... More

Bacon bits soak in old oil for hours. Rolls stale. Fruit juice cheap and acidic. Rooms basic as stated - tv didn't work, nor did bed side lights. Nor did... More

This is a very modern hotel.... if it would still be 1980! I guess nothing was upgaded or updated ever since. Having said that, everything is still in good condition and clean. Rooms are cleaned every day. The beds are a bit hard yes, but ok to sleep on, but I guess that differs per person. The batroom has a... More
