“Fun in the sun”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Stayed in an apartment overlooking the pool. It was very clean and had all the amenities you could want for a self catering apartment. Staff were friendly and always happy to help and the cleaning staff offered to clean the apartment and change towels/bedding every other day. The town and beach are a 5 min walk away with plenty eating establishments to chose from. Laura the owner and Maria in the pool bar made our first visit to Portugal memorable.

We had a great family holiday, our two bed apartment in block four was very spacious and all on one level which was great since we have a very active 2 year old, I had arranged this with Laura prior to our stay. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed, lots of crockery, cutlery and pots and pans which came in useful when we ate in, we even used the washing machine. The maid service was a little patchy, we waited a week before our sheets were changed but had 3 sets of clean towels throughout our stay. We used the main pool area by the bar as didn't have a key for access to any of the pool areas, the pool by lot four i suspect was kept for private use. The main pool area was always clean and tidy some of the sunbeds however do need replaced as most were broken in places, the kids pool was perfect for my 2 year old however the apartments would benefit hugely from a childrens play area, as the nearest we could find was half way along the beach. Access to the main street and lovely beach was just a short walk down then up a small hill which was perfectly manageable but a little challenging with a buggy, the pavements in the area are a nightmare for buggys as they are all small stone cobble like, we ended up pushing the buggy on the cycle paths when we could. There are plenty of fabulous restaurants and bars in close proximity with a personal recommendation for humbertos and the all you can eat sushi restaurant.
Overall we absolutely loved our stay and found the apartments fantastic value for money, we will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: If traveling with young children contact Laura in advance to request a room on one level

We got diverted to Porto airport en route due to a passenger being ill, so arrived at the apartments over an hour late (about 01.00) I had rung Laura to tell her we were going to be late as we left the airport.
apartment 2 beds 2 bath 2 balconies. A bit light on crockery which was mismatched, especially as the apartment technically slept 6 people. The balcony over the front was directly above the main doors to the block, so when the party animals arrived home at stupid o clock there was a lot of slamming.Towels changed 3 times during our 10 day stay and beds changed after 1 week.Maids emptied the bins 6 days out of seven. Short walk up to the front a bit of a hill but I've known worse and you have to build up a bit of a thirst somehow. The little cobbles used for paving are very slippery, I dont know how anybody walks in heels on them.

Room Tip: Book early.

Apartments are brilliant, pool are is well maintained. Ten minute walk to the front for your nightlife, restaurants etc and the fabulous beach. Hope to see more of Rambo and Pintash Lauras cats next year. Fantastic holiday.

Just back from a week in these apartments and I want to go back! Laura, the owner is very friendly and helpful. We arrived in the dark after a long day travelling and where greeted by Laura and the 2 parrots. She showed us to the apartment and showed us around it. The apartment was great- split level and spacious. The were excellent kitchen facilities including a washing machine. The pool area and snack bar were just what you needed. The whole complex is well maintained and clean. The location is a short walk to the beach and also convenient to Portimao for shopping. There is a lidl, aldi and Continente near the apartments for your food shopping. We had rented a car and there was plenty of parking at the apartment. There is some landscaping work in the filed beside the apartments but it did not bother us during the stay. There is also a donkey and horse grazing in the field so it gives a slightly rural feel even though you are in the centre of Praia da Rocha. When we were going home, I asked if we could stay on in the apartment as our flight was in the evening. This was no problem and it meant we could spend more time at the complex. I thoroughly recommend a stay here and hope to return
