“relaxing holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Have stayed here at least 20 times .The owner and staff are lovely friendly people ..was there last rugby world cup and as the Ireland game was on about 6 am .The owners daughter came in and let me watch the game on sky in the lounge,even made me a coffee. Seperate entrance to apartment on side of building so you dont always have to use hotel lobby . showers could do with upgrading but I think this is getting done. Looking forward to my next stay there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We have been going to the Rosamar 1 and Armacao De Pera for about 25 years. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful.Have also got to know the owner who goes out of her way to say hello and chat. We have never had a problem with the rooms because if soemthing is not quite right it is fixed or put straight very quickly. Self catering allows us to sample the restaurants in the evening many of which are very good. If we need a taxi or need to book a trip the reception staff are able to help. We have visited in Spring and Autumn and the weather is generally very good. We now go twice a year in April and October

Room Tip: try and get a room facing the beach which is approx 50 yards away

Stayed in this hotel Nov/Oct a few years ago, it is an old fashioned hotel which added to the character of the place. Loved Armacao de Pera as it is a fantastic place to go on holiday if you don't want to be surounded by larger louts. It has the beast beaches on the Algarve and food to die for. The hotel staff were very friendly, it's not the Ritz but it is nice and clean.

We stayed here for 10 days with the family, a group of 6. The location is amazing, the price, and the available pools, 1 indoor, and 1 outdoor. The convenience of grocery stores and restaurants near by, walking distance, and the proximity to the beach. Awesome experience. Returning this year, 2010, and staying at the Rosamar again!!!
You should check it out. Will add photos this year....

We stayed at the Rosamar I which are in the quieter area and are quite dated but very comfortable and the cleaning was done every day. On arrival a bottle of port was on the table in the kitchen. The pool at the sister apartments was unavailable but we had the use of the pool at the guitar bar. This turned out to be an area with three pools and was a very well kept place. We tended to stay in the quiter part of the resort where we found all staff extremely friendly and the prices were so much less than in rip off Ireland. We would thoroughly recommend this resort for those looking to relax and unwind.

Reception area looks nice, accommodation is basic - not even an overhead light in bedroom. Music is banned in this resort so if you dont want to sleep at 11pm you must get taxi to Albuferia at 40 euro approx(return). Restaurants all serve the same food. Despite advertisements the nearest pool is quarter mile away at Guitar bar. You cannot use pool at Rosamar 2 despite the advertisements. You cannot flag taxis - must be got at official taxi ranks. Taxi drivers take long way round to fleece you so agree price first. Ours ranged from 13 euro to 22 euro for taxi to Albuferia (one way) as some of them take the longest route possible.
You must go to Albuferia to get most trips/attractions. Sand is roasting with no shade as cliff faces that overhang beaches are extremely precarious. Dont go into the water unless your an extremely strong swimmer as you sink in the sand and the waves/surf tumbled people into the water at less than knee level. Flag system operating and strong currents operating frequently so boat trips cancelled. Water park is well worth a visit. No toilets on the long haul buses. Only 2 english speaking pubs in the area. Boaring holiday
