Rocamar Exclusive Hotel & Spa
Ranked #44 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed November 15, 2013

My wife and I have just returned from the Rocamar where we had five wonderful days. This was our second visit, previously having spent a week there in October. The hotel is in a perfect position for the town and beach, both being five minutes away.Its well worth booking a sea view for the view of the beach and surrounding area. We enjoyed the breakfast and evening meals and found all the staff very helpful. As we had a return morning flight we had no time for breakfast, so we requested a packed lunch, around 9 pm we had a knock at our door and we were presented with a basket of cereals, milk, orange juice, ham and cheese cob and fruit. I must thank Annabelle at reception and all the staff for all the help given to us.

We stayed for 4 days at the Rocamar in October. We arrived early and our room wasn't available but the hotel stored our luggage until regular check in time.
We had a room on the 2nd floor with a balcony and a wonderful view of the beach directly in front of the hotel. The sunset was lovely.
The location of the hotel is excellent with direct access to the beach, an easy walk to both restaurants and shopping.
The room was spacious and comfortable and the shower had great pressure. The bathroom products are very good and there's a washing line above the bath. There's plenty of wardrobe space as well. The lighting for reading was also excellent, something that is lacking in many hotels. There is a safe but it comes at a cost of €1.50.
Breakfast was included in our tariff and the choice of food was good. You can get a drink and have a bite to eat so there is no need to leave the hotel if you don't want to.
No beach or pool towels are provided by the hotel. We purchased 2 in the local shopping area for €7.50 each which was the cheapest price we could find. We left the towels behind as we had no room in our suitcases.
The Rocamar is a lovely hotel and we would be very happy to return.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 2nd floor with an uninterrupted sea view.

We have just returned from a week in Portugal where we stayed at the Rocamar. This is a Lovely Hotel in a great location just minutes from the old town.
We stayed in room 317 which is on the reception floor and yes we did look onto a fence which was in front of the road but there was not much noise and we had a large area to sit outside if we wished, we however did not as we were either at the pool or the beach. If you want a sea view you will have to pay extra, we did not. Our room was quite large as was the bathroom and very nicely decorated, The breakfast was a typical foreign breakfast and plenty to choose from. As for the staff they were all very helpful if you needed anything. The rooms were cleaned every day, and the towels were also changed every day
I think people like to moan about anything, maybe they should stay at home- you could not fault this Hotel, rooms or staff.

Me and my Wife recently stayed at the rocomar for our honeymoon and had no issues whatsoever, we were even provided complementary champagne on our arrival.

The rooms are immaculate and cleaned to within an inch of their lives by pleasant and chatty staff.

The Hotel staff themselves may at first come across as stand-off-ish but what we discovered is that as there are so many nationalities that frequent the hotel they are often hesitant to speak first as they unsure what language to use. Once approached, they are friendly and more than happy to help, more so, if you take the time and effort to be friendly with them they will of course reciprocate.

The food is exactly what you would expect from any Hotel buffet. I have to repeat a comment i read previously on here. If you want an english breakfast, stay in england!! You always have the option of going to a restaurant if you dont like whats on offer.

My wife used the spa and beauty facilities onsite and could not speak highly enough of the beautician. I used the gym and found this always clean and the equipment in working order.

We stayed on the 2nd floor with a sea view which was only spoiled by the rear security fence being partially visible from our balcony which in the grand scheme of our holiday was really not that important. I would agree with most the comments on here, avoid the 3rd floor, too close to the pool area and lack of privacy.

The hotel is visually very well presented especially the bar/restaurant area.

You can leave your room and be on the beach in less than 3 minutes which is a plus in anyones books is a very good point.

We would both be more than happy to return to this hotel!!

Room Tip: Avoid the 3rd floor, Sea view is essential!

Lovely hotel, beautiful views, small but perfect pool with gorgeous sunbeds, breakfast was fine with the waiters efficiently clearing up to cater for the next guests. We were in room 406 overlooking the sea but if others found it dark then maybe they should have opened the curtains, yes the bathroom was dated and small but was adequate and if refurbished then would be wonderful, fresh towels every day and I slept like a log. This is a lovely small 3* hotel in the old town and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
