“Just NOT Inclusive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

First the good points:
Large, clean spacious accommodation.
Staff friendly and helpful, when you can find them.
Bad Points:
Location - On a busy main road opposite a roundabout to the front, all weather football pitches to the rear. A good 20 minute walk to the beach and set in a pretty depressing run down area.
Outdoor area: There is none. You cannot sit outside with a drink unless you're by the pool, then you're into plastic glasses and swimming costumes. What about a cocktail before dinner or a coffee outdoors after?
All Inclusive is NOT all inclusive - Basically, there is a very minimal choice of food that is included, anything remotely appetising costs extra.
They even close the all inclusive bar at 11pm! If you would like a beer at 11.05pm you're going to have to pay!
Would I stay here again? Not a chance. Anyone that can be so tight as to refuse to serve me a drink when I've already paid for it will not see my custom again. It's just plain tight and counterproductive.

Apartment was lovely and spacious. It was cleaned daily with fresh sheets and towels. Pool area was nice and quiet. Staff were great and very helpful. Not too far from praia da rocha strip. Shopping centre close by with lare supermarket. Had a lovely relaxing week here and would stay here again.

We have use of an apartment here and so travel quite regularly. We fly from Cork now with Ryan air and book yellowfish transfers com to take us to the hotel , they never fail us and to be fair neither have Ryan air,
Modern apartments well fitted out with flat screen tv's an DVD player.
The pool area is a let down its not a good size it's a bit wee!
The walk to the shops is 10 minutes its a big shopping centre. The beach is only 10 minutes away too as is the Strip .
Praia da Rocha in my opinion is the best place on the Algarve as it has something for everyone old or young .

Stayed here last summer with my partner for a week. Wonderful choice, so close to the beach and all the pubs/shops. Great value and the apartments are beautifully decorated. I'm a bit of a clean freak but Oceano Atlantico lived up to my high standards! Spotlessly clean. We will most definitely be back.

From the moment we walked into this hotel we were very impressed. Nice and quiet very clean although lift floors would like an introduction to the hoover. Staff very friendly and helpfull bedrooms very spacious we had a two bedroom apt. sitting room kitchen two bathrooms which is brilliant when there is four people.We had a massive corner balcony which got the sun from morning to evening. requested a sea view when booking, what we got was a Sea View, a view of Monchique Mountains and a view of Praia Da Rocha. We have never seen a self cetering apt. so well equipt with fridge freezer, washer dryer, dishwasher, all delf and utensils no electric kettle asked at reception and one was sent up within minutes.Cleaners in every day excellent service.Would stay here anytime.

Great place to say, fairly near the beach and the "strip"
Apartment was huge, 4 bedrooms, 2 of which were ensuite, 1 large bathroom, huge lounge and dining room, dining table and 8 chairs. Kitchen was small and could do with a few more utensils, but it did not bother us as we ate out most of the time. There were no wine glasses, we got some from the bar but the barman wanted them back in the morning, he got them back when our holiday was over!! Ask for a kettle as it only has a small coffee maker. There is a large fridgefreezer, dishwasher, washing machine and also a clothes airer.
We had to call reception to say we had no hot water and needed a bulb for the lamp in the lounge,we had no sooner called when someone came to sort out the problems.
The downfall was that we had one small patio table and only two chairs for using on the balcony, there were 8 of us. Throughout our week we asked for more chairs but they never appeared. Everyday we were told maybe tomorrow, at the end of the week we were told that it was only two chairs allocated per apartment. We had to use the dining chairs if we all wanted to sit outside.
The pool is very small and very, very cold so we didn't use it much. There are two pool tables which was good for some entertainment on the rainy days.
There is a small shop nearby which we used for basic things. We walked to the shopping centre and did a big shopping at the supermarket and got a taxi back.
Good place to stay but it was quiet so it may not be for you if you want a livelier holiday.
