Stayed with 4 other females as a cheap girly holiday in May 2008 and loved it!
Went back in July 2008 for another week with my husband.
Going back in September 2009 with family party of 6.
The hotel is very very clean! The beach is the best I have ever seen, and I have been to Kenya, Australia, Dominican, Canada.
This is the best place to stay in the area for cost and location.
Also I love a little flutter and it is across the road from the Casino. If you play poker like me or the tables, you have to pay a fee to enter the gaming room, this is not a Casino rule but a law of Portugal. You can go to the slot machine room free and it is huge compared to British ones. Lucky me I won £1000 last holiday. I love Praia da Rocha and the Santa Caterina Hotel and will recommend them both to anyone who will listen.
PS I know the Hotel has no pool but the sea and beautiful beach are just across the road.More
