“For the price, worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

In short, we couldn't fault anything in the apartments, other than the fact, if someone had of wanted to break in, the windows and doors were going to put up a minimal fight. Otherwise, was clean, all appliances worked, including cooker, and sharing the same apartment with 4 other people made getting ready each evening a treat compared to flitting between rooms in most hotels...

What a lovely hotel/apartments. We have just come back from 1 weeks holiday, the room was lovely and spacious. The entertainment around the pool was great for the kids and David on reception was lovely. We will definitely go back!

This was our second visit to the Roc Portanova, 6 years apart but it is a great place to stop!
Yes i agree that it does need updating but for the amount of time spent in the apartment it is nothing to worry about. Cleaned and towels changed regular, enough appliances in kicthen to make breakfast and snacks, freezer and fridge great. Balcony on the back of the kitchen with sink and washing line , great for drying any washing and storing inflatables out of the way. We were on the 2nd floor over looking the sea and pool, balcony had table, 4 chairs, drying rack, loads of space lovley to sit and watch the boats on the sea. We had a two bedroom apartment, loads of wardrobe space. Pool was great, could get a bit busy but it was school holidays, kids section very good, kids were in everyday pool was open 9am - 8pm. Staff were very polite and helpful. The location of this hotel is perfect, beach is a 2 minute walk away just over the road, kids play area is in front of the beach steps. A lovely walk down the seafront to loads of good resturants to please any tastes, with shops to browse in on the way. Plenty to keep kids of any age entertained. Taxi from airport to hotel takes 30mins at tops and cost us 36 euros. We spent a day at the Western Water Park a 6 euro taxi ride. This is a great day out but very expensive especially if you have young children who might not want to use a lot of the slides, can get very busy aswell, but still fun!
All in all a great place for a great holiday, this is 3* so dont expect the Hilton, but all you need is clean, spacious, friendliy staff, great location, great pool then this is a great place to visit!

We had booked to stay in another hotel but there had been a mix up and we were put here for the first night. Lobby is fine and staff are very welcoming and extremely helpful. However, the corridors are grotty and the room we were put in was extremely depressing with the view of the back of a restaurant kitchen, complete with the sound of washing up and chip smells at night. Although we were serenaded by a Mariachi band at one point which was fun. The apartment was a good size but grotty, the shower was cockeyed and the drains a bit smelly. It was OK for one night but I would have been very disappointed if I had to stay here all week. I appreciate we were probably put in the worst room as it was only for one night and maybe the other rooms are better. Large pool area seemed very busy with a really annoying entertainer.

We stayed in an apartment in Portonovo for 3 weeks...Apt 22..Owned by Donna and tended to by Mandi..The apt has EVERYTHING one could possible need,home from home,Washing machine,cooker with oven,fridge freezer and not only had it a double bed it also had a memory foam matress!!PURE HEAVEN!!Mandi had the apt gleaming and called to clean,change bed and towels once a week..Well done Mandi.
Pool bar is run by Mags and John,a very friendly,helpful,accomadating couple.
Pool area clean,tidy and lovely athmosphere..this could be due to the fact that majority of apts are privately owned and people just gathered in pool bar each evening and bonded and chatted.
Overall a lovely place to holiday.

Room Tip: Although apt 22 where i stayed for 3 weeks did not have a view it was home from home.

I returned to the Roc Portanova because I enjoyed it so much last time (about 3 years ago). I say mixed feelings as I would agree with many of the reviews here that the apartments are definitely overdue for a redecoration. What I experienced as 'retro' last time I would now describe as shabby!! The other thing I really wasn't happy about is the fact we paid 5 euros for a day's use of wireless internet and the signal was so weak it simply didn't work.

Having said all this, I still have a soft spot for the Roc - it's located in a quiet, beautiful corner of Palma Nova and is literally ten steps away from the beach. The other thing I would say is that the staff - without exception - from the housekeeping to the reception were some of the friendliest and most helpful I have experienced.

Room Tip: West facing rooms get more sun in the afternoon, but you will not get a sea view if you book a one b...

we spent two wks july/aug 2012 in the roc portanova,with our two young kids.on arrival we were a little dissapointed with the "look" of the hotel and room,there is no doubt that this hotel could do with being updated and have some money spent on it!,however we soon reolised that the staff make up for this shortcoming, dave at reception couldnt have been more friendly and helpfull, a smashing guy, the cleaners were great,fresh towels and sheets every other day,and the kids entertainer" elitsa" was fantastic,so much so my son was in tears on our departure!!!she has been missed and is a credit to the hotel.The location is perfect! 100 yards fron the beach,plenty of aminities nearby.if u get put in room 101(overlooking the wall) speak to dave ,he will move you!
