“Dramatic coastline”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Walking through the caves or spotting rocks in the water; this is not the average coast. The prom is full of quality bars and restaurants. Long beach and lovely walks.

“Great Holiday Destination”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The main strip had great selection of bars, retaurants and cafes. Shops, banks and newsagents all easily accessible. Loved the beach, so clean with crystal clear waters and spotless sand. Only downside I can even think of was that there was only one ramp to get down to beach and was quite steep, not easy with puchchairs!!

Reviewed May 12, 2013

I liked that it wasn't too big a resort, but still had a good choice of bars and restaurants.

“Beautiful spectacular beaches”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Praia Da Rocha is a beach town outside off Portimao. in the 1930's haven of the rich and famous. now it's quite built up and caters to tourists. however, travel west along the A3 for a kilometre and walk across the cliff to see some amazing unspoilt beaches.

“20 years on .”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

being going to Rocha for the last 20 years first arrived with allocation on arrival been going back ever since never fails to offer great service value for money and a warm welcome, the beaches are clean safe ideal for families. There is only a couple things that annoys me British time share touts do tend to be pain in the rear but you spot them early and avoid them and gypo,s asking if want to buy watches ,sun glasses cigs drugs etc DONT even stop to talk to them walk on.
