The apartment's were excellent , couldn't have asked for more, they were a little far out from the resort itself , accessed by a rough track 10 to 15 min walk so if you want the beach close by don't choose these apartments, the only real down side is the shortage of sun beds for the amount of people using the lovely apartments, the management need to get there act together & buy more

Nice clean apartments slightly dated but good value. Had a great holiday in praia da rocha with our two year old. Friendly people no hassle hol.

Only gripe is in hotel i had to repeatedly ask for correct change over bar and if i hadn't been switched on would have been quite a bit down over the hol. Oh and nowhere near enough sunbeds around the pool. All in all a great bargain base camp for a fantastic holiday.

Excellent facilities , large apartment, well equipped. Friendly staff. Good, quiet location, 10 minutes from the beach. Returning later in the season! Breakfast waiter was very friendly and gave information about the area. Arrived at 12.30 am, we were expected and dealt with professionally. Green Bus transfer service was excellent.

Room Tip: Room 312 is excellent, good view from the balcony. Higher floors are quitter.

We arrived at 1.30am and the receptionist was awake and directed us to our fab apartment. As everyone always says, the apartments are very large and very clean and well equipped. The pool was very freshly filled with cold water (no chlorine) and freezing for the end of May. It was a lovely quiet time with a maximum of 11 of us sat around pool. Drinks were expensive at the bar on site (E3 for pint San Miguel) we didn't stop there again, as when you walked the 10 minutes to the main strip of tourist bars (via the dirt track) the day price was from E1 to top eve price E2.50. Plenty of lovely bars and restaurants to choose from with good daily special 3 course meals for E9. We liked Claires, Casa de la mer and Outro bar overlooking sea and very sheltered. Red wine very cheap in supermarkets from E1.50. Beautiful sand but sunbeds and parasols E12, best to take a towel and pitch on sand.

Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, and huge self catering apartments. Everything one would need for a great holiday. Very relaxed and casual atmosphere. Would reccommend. One caveat, a car might be an advantage as it is 3 kms from the centre. Hire is very reasonable.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartments have great balconies with sun loungers and tables. Perfect for families.

We have just returned from 10 days at Plaza Real, the apartments are great, so spacious. We asked for a ground floor apartment and that it what we got. The rooms were clean. The bed was changed every other day. We had some nice meals in the restaurant. They were brilliant with my 4 year old nephew. This is our 6 time to these apartments and we are never disappointed. We will be returning again next year.

Stayed here with family from 10th-24th May and cannot say a bad word about the apartments..we were luckier than others as we had a ground floor apartment(we had baby with us) therefore we had a huge terrace along with 2 sunbeds and plenty of sun !! the apartment is quite big and well equipped..ok, the kettle on the stove takes longer than the normal electric one but u get used to it! Pool + baby pool was great, although freezing.. The apartments themselves are quiet, and in a very quiet area..We ate only once or twice there for lunch and it was ok..small menu.. Staff very helpful if you want any info / taxis etc.. the only drawback is the location..a dirtrack walk to beach / nightlife...but u need to get a taxi back as it wouldnt be the safest coming back in the dark..
Praia Da Rocha in general, quiet, not much going on(maybe it was time of yr) beach is lovely and the restaurants along the beach do some lovely fish dishes.. some restaurants in Praia da Rocha offer 3 course meals for around €8! Great Value! We went to Alvor twice + a boat trip up to Silves...Would also recommend the Agua Shopping mall...5 min taxi from hotel..the continente huge supermarket is 10-15 min walk away..Taxis are 4-5euro around the place..

Room Tip: Ground floor apartment if available!
