4 star hotel on the beach. Breakfast was 4 star. Evening meal and drinks expensive Plenty of restaurants within minutes from hotel. Good local cuisine, reasonabley priced. Plenty to do around and near hotel. Book dolphin viewing early as it's popular.

You MUST see this area! Pictures don't do it justice. All of our pictures looked like postcards. Such an incredible sight!

First visit to Praia Da Rocha during Spetember 2016. Had a great holiday, beach is lovely and clean but the sea was pretty chilly and quite rough but maybe this was because we were edging towards the end of summer.
