“A lovley hostel!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

If you are going to Praia Da Rocha this hostel is really super. But it feels a little miss placed. I only have good coments about Villa Joaninha. It's clean, Sophia (owner) is super awesome and helpful, they have an amazing view and I sleept really good here.

But before going here I wish I did a better reaserch about Praia Da Rocha, which offers you a big beach, big apartments buildings and big hotels. I missed the Portugise atmosphear and the place felt really turistic.

If you go here this is the place to stay, and then take a taxiboat to Ferragudo!

Villa owner was very hospitable and really wanted to do as much as possible to make our stay easy and enjoyable. There were no other guests there the night we stayed so we had the entire villa to ourselves. Amazing location--great view and just a brief walk down to the main street and beach. We really enjoyed our stay there!

I travelled to Portimao, Portugal, on hollidays with my family and stayed at Villa Joaninha. Was received by the hosts with the nicest and most welcoming manners. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed all the activities suggested by our hosts. Also having a big family, they knew exactly what we needed and made it so that these were the best hollidays we've had.

If clean and cosy is what you want, then this is where you'll need to be! Great service, cleaning several times a day. Communal kitchen and fridge and great view from the balcony at the living room. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

...we really felt at home, very nice hosts! very clean, 2 minutes way to the large and nice sandbeach with coffebars etc. everything was perfect, the double bed is usually too small in portugal. it´s better to take a twin-bed-room and put the beds together. in the morning the other guests, if there are any, could wake you up, just by making their breakfast etc., so if you want to sleep longer than 9 am you should tell the other guests to close doors.
a very nice stay, looking forward to next time!

Pedro and Sofia are the best hosts, always with the most adequate suggestions. Praia da Rocha is a pristine white sand beach at one stairway distance and Villa Joaninha a cosy/no frills ambiance, higlhly recommended for everyone looking for great value, tranquile sunny holidays. All sorts of amusements at hands reach, from night live to day time diving and driving experiences, including some free treats.
