This hotel is very good as a base for visiting around the area room was enormous and in very good condition the bathroom looked new and the fully fitted kitchen was well equipped. The problem was there was not a shop on site and if you were self catering you would have to take a bus to get supplies! We...

Stayed here for 5 nights 7-12th may, and the hotel had it's good and bad points. Firstly the apartment itself was very good, spacious and kept spotlessly clean by the cleaning staff, and plenty of utensils and equipment in the kitchen for self-caterers as we were. TV had a few English channels which isn't always the case, and there was...

Me and my bf stayed there for 4 nights. When we arrived, we got a bit surprised, the apartment was bigger than we thought. :) Free wi-fi is only in the reception, if you want to have it in your room you have to pay. The good thing about this hotel is also the location, very close to the beach....

We went all inclusive and ate out after day one, the food is ridiculously bad. The apartments are very nice and spacious. Only free Wi-Fi is in reception. Nearest supermarket is about a 10 minute walk depending on fitness and it's around this area there are some nice restaurants. Taxi into Armacio 6 Euros and to Albufera 21 Euros. Self...

Good location and spacious clean rooms, we were lucky to have sea views. That is the positive the negative is the 'all inclusive' is dire! Inedible breakfast, poor dinner and lunch we skipped due to the poor breakfast! Go to the amazing beach restaurant and forget the inclusive !!

“TIP. When booking, NEVER confuse Senhora de Rocha with Praia de Rocha or your holiday will be hell. Download tide tables for Faro.”
