We were transferred here from the Mirachora Hotel and were thrilled with our 1 bed apartment. We spent 2 weeks there over Christmas and New Year.There were very few (about 5!) guests so the reception was only open from 8am til 7pm. This is ok until you have a problem e.g. fire alarm going off in seemingly empty apartments. The... More

Even at the end of season it was fantastic. The staff were great, apartment was cleaned and towels changed every day. Pool was great and spotless. Fantastic overall service. It is a few mins walk from the main strip but well worth it.. Free wifi at bar/pool area. We were also upgraded to superior which has very good air con.

An amazing family holiday of 21. From infants as young as 2 and adults 50+ and there was something to suit us all, good location within a ten minute walk to the beach. Fantastic swimming pools within the hotel. Amazing staff that were so friendly. Perfect self catering hotel, I recommend trying the chicken or tuna baguettes. Best 3 euros... More

Arrived at the hotel at 12.00am, but they were expecting us and we were able to check in. Walked down to the bar and were greeting by Elvis tunes being belted out by some other guests!!!......Oh my god what have we done However in the warm light of day, this hotel turned out to be absolutely fine. Our room was... More

It's probably our 9th visit to the Vila Rosa and it was the best apartment we have ever had. Lots of room but basic and very clean. Only suggestion I would have is to supply electric kettles and update the TV channels (BBC & ITV) get sick of listening to World News!! Reception and cleaning staff are all very friendly... More

We enjoyed our one week stay at Vila Rosa. We were in the apartment block separate to the main complex. Although basic and in a block where most of the other apartments were privately owned, it was very well equipped with electric kettle, toaster, microwave, full oven and grill plus iron and ironing board. It was spotlessly clean with comfy... More

There is a very polite personal. We stayed 8 nights and for any information the receptionists were very very friendly. The resort is nice and spacious. It's about 10 min from the beach The apartments are very spacious and clean.

Have just come back from a week in Praia Da Rocha. Stayed at the '3 star' Vila Rosa Hotel. Firstly, its Not a Hotel, its a handful of apartment blocks set around a central hub and pool. Secondly, its NOT 3 star, one or two at max, its comparable with a tired travellodge type budget accommodation, We were on half... More
