Just back from a week in the sol flor da rocha. We had a one bedroom apartment on the5th floor. The apartment was fabulous. Huge and so spacious with a balcony off the main living room and off the bedroom also. It was very well equipped and had shutters over the balcony doors which meant it stayed nice and cool. Cleaners were great, everyday had clean towels. The were very friendly. The Reception staff were very nice also. The pool area was terribly quiet, no music and the guy at the bar was uncommunicative and unfriendly. He really didnt want to be there at all. There was no entertainment whatsoever in the complex. We had a drink one night in the bar but we were the only ones there so left pretty quickly. There is no need to spend much time in the complex anyway as the beach is just a 5minute walk away up a steep hill though and down a lot of steps. Plenty of great bars in the area eg on the rocks, Croke Park, The Celt Inn, Dalys, and I could go on and on. For eating you have to try Claires, up the hill and turn right. So cheap. 3 course meal 7.95Euro. Pints for 1euro from 9am to 5pm and very nice staff. The area is very clean and the people are very friendly. We did find a shorter way home from the strip but as it was late at night and dark I would advise you to walk the way you know. Stay along the strip and down the hill. Would definately reccommend Praia da Rocha. And while these apartments are very nice we found not many facilities in the hotel, no atm, internet didnt work and no place around reception to purchase any water or anything. Amarilis complex next door has a supermarket but you're better off going to the Alisuper on the strip for your messages. Much cheaper, even cheaper than the Spar. Oh and defo pay a visit to Bacchus Bar and to Arthur there with his beautiful dog and talking parrott. Food gorgeous here too. Would definately go back to Praia da Rocha however I think I might try to book one of the many complexes or hotels on the strip to be nearer to the nightlife and the beach.
