Loved this hotel. Booked as a second choice after a terrible experience from first choice. Rooms are very big. Very clean. Beach right in front of the hotel. Staff where very nice and helpful. My favourite was the cleaning lady.

The hotel is very well situated and our room looked over the beautiful beach. Nice large room and comfortable bed. Unfortunately, there was a smell in the bathroom which, despite being cleaned extremely well, could not be sorted. Breakfast was excellent but staff did not welcome guests enough and very rarely said good morning. Also, when I mentioned that there were no teabags, I was told they were just left for the first day! I thought that was penny-pinching and showed my amazement. However, it was acted on straight away and more tea bags were left in the room. Complaints quickly acted upon every time. Special mention needs to be made of the Restaurant Manager who was charming. Salvano? Also the mature reception gentleman, helpful and courteous. Likewise, the room cleaner, excellent, she was very thorough. Sadly, the weather was not good and many restaurants etc were closed but I would come back to this hotel in early summer and make more use of their excellent facilities.

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary on the 'Romantic Evening' offer having noticed this when passing on an earlier occasion. Firstly we must say it was superb in most respects and with a little bit of thought could achieve (for us) 5* or 100% status.
Staff 100% - everyone with whom we came into contact with, reception, waiters,cleaners were extremely friendly, pleasant and did everything they could to make our stay memorable.
Room 95% - large,recently refurbished with magnificent views over the huge Praia da Rocha as far as the port entrance to the East and to Lagos to the West - large TV, fridge, settee, comfortable king-size bed and large bathroom with walk-in shower. Marked down because the provided dressing gowns labelled XL were so small (shrunk in the wash ?) that even my wife could not wear it and a slight drain smell in the bathroom. Nice touches were the silk roses on the bed, good quality 'sparkly' and provided chocolates and strawberries.
Food 90% - the 'Romantic Dinner' was superb with decorated window table and a near Michelin standard meal spoiled only by one thing - FROZEN CARROTS (slimey) AND BEANS - when fresh vegetables are cheap and readily available in Portugal. Breakfast was good by continental standards but not the typical British 'fry-up' !
Overall we would thoroughly recommend this hotel, will probably repeat our experience for our next anniversary and would hope that, if the manager reads this, the chef is sent to the local market for fresh vegetables and we can give 100% all round.

Room Tip: Whilst all rooms have view of the beach the superior front rooms have a panoramic view and the corner suites huge balconies.

Lovely little hotel at the quieter end of Praia da Rocha. Interesting styling with lots of Moorish features such as gorgeous lanterns, indoor water feature and Arabic style windows and doors. Really sets it apart from some of the local "shoe box" architecture. Very convenient and picturesque location above the fabulous beach. Sadly the weather did it's best to put a spoiler on that side of things. Like most of the Algarve, we weren't exactly surrounded by other guests, in fact quite often the only ones in the bar or restaurant. Not a lot to do at this time of the year but by April or May I would think there are some lovely pre and after dinner strolls to be had. Half board menu was a bit hit and miss, but adequate and a lot better than having to go hunting for a restaurant in the rain. The star are very friendly and chatty and the hotel is kept extremely clean. Our room faced the beach and looked to have been recently re-furbished. A possible for a return visit

Room Tip: Some room have kitchenette, if you have a preference let them know in advance
