Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a 9day stay at The Hotel Marina Sao Roque. The staff were all friendly and they went out of their way to make sure everyone was ok. The manager was extremely funny and his little stories made us laugh and we enjoyed having a drink with him in the bar. The reception staff speak very good english and the young girl especially was very helpful and called our transfers for us. Breakfast was lovely just what you wanted to wake up to every morning. The room was a nice size and shower did take some getting used to but was fine. If you want 5* then book 5*. The location was perfect!!! Bar Paris is to the left of the hotel and they do some lovely food and its very reasonably priced. Its a couple of minutes walk to the marina where there are lots of bars and restaurants. The town is a 10 minute walk from the hotel and its a lovely walk we wouldnt have wanted it any closer. There are many lovely places to eat but the best one by far was "Maharaja's Tasty Indian". We walked past it in the day many times but one evening thankfully we decided to eat there. The staff were so nice and they cook in an open kitchen which is wonderful. The food was the tastiest I have ever eaten in a restaurant anywhere!! Do not eat in the Kohninoor unless you like everything creamy and cooked in yogurt. The staff in the Shalimar were very rude so we decided not to bother and the Pashmina seemed to keep shutting earlier because they were quiet. The "Piri Piri" did lovely food and their salads were a work of art. Make sure you go to the english pub "Fool's and Horse's" you won't have a dull moment. The beach is about a 15 min walk from the hotel and is absolutely stunning! Make sure you go on a boat trip to see the grottos its 10 euro's and the views will blow you away. All this right on the doorstep of the really lovely Hotel Marina Sao Roque . We left at 6.45 am and they even opened reception early so there was someone there to see us off and thank us for our visit. This was a lovely thing to do and made us feel very special. Do not read the bad reviews on this hotel they are NOT true!! Book yourselves in and make up your own mind. I can assure you that you won't be disappointed. Thank you to everyone at the Hotel Marina Sao Roque we will see you soon :) xx
