“Excellent location and price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010

Stayed in an apartment at the Jardins da Rocha Sept 15-22. Location was ideal. Nice size apartment with microwave, dishes, pots&pans, etc. Great view of the beach from 19th flr. Front desk staff were great and provided lots of info and assistance. Hotel was just (and I mean just) off the main strip where you could find many shops and restaurants. A little older apartment but rooms were all a fairly big and housekeeping came a number of times during the week (not everyday as it is an apartment not a hotel). The best beach ever was about a minute walk (you have to go down over steps in a number of places along the strip to get to the beach - not great for mobility impaired). Two pools at hotel (1 was kids) with lots of sun chairs available. In Sept not a lot of people around so had no problem getting a chair. Small supermarket nearby but larger (much better) supermarket was a 4 euro taxi ride away. Bus station around the corner. Would stay there again, no hesitation.

Stayed here for a week in july.Read reviews b4 i booked,all seemed good.Cant believe not one review mentioned how hard and squeaky the beds were.There were five of us and none of us got a decent nites sleep for a week.We were glad to go home back to our own beds.
The place is clean enough,apart from a large cockroach in our room one nite.
three of us were on the 12th floor and the others were put on the 17th which was a bit of a pain.......
The whole place is very basic and did not really feel like a hotel.
Nice seaview which was spoilt by empty derelict building.
Would not go here again. xx

Really good location, so near beach and bars, but still far enough to sleep well! We had well equipped apartment. Balcony with nice view. Good parking for our car. Little contact with staff but impression was positive. Good choice for both, having couple of days fun and sleeping between long days of car racing activities.

We arrived at midnight to a friendly welcome. Appartment was of good size with well stocked kitchen incl fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee machine etc.. Hotel location is only 5 min stroll from beautiful beach and amenities. Supermarket around the corner. It has 2 beautiful pools and a lovely little garden and also a playground. There is a takeaway/sit in pizza restaurant on site which is great value. Will definitely be back next year if not later this year!!

This is a great place to stay, staff are so friendly, rooms are cleaned every two or three days!! It is only a short walk to the main street where all the pubs are, and a 2mins walk to the beach!!! Beautiful views from the Sea View Rooms, only negative thing is the balcony is so small but to be honest it is fine. Pizza place downstairs is good!! Highly recommend to couples and families!! Can't wait to go there again!!!
