These are large 1 bedroom apartments with full size kitchen (oven, 4 ring hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster) with Ikea crockery/utensils, large bathroom, double bedroom, huge lounge/diner with double bed/settee. Cleaned daily, towels changed daily (they were obviously new and the bath towels are large) bed linen weekly. Air con in bedroom and lounge. The balconies on the ground floors are massive, but only big enough for 2 on other floors. It's a little bit out of the way but we didn't mind the steady walk to the bars and restaurants in the resort centre. If you need to do a "big shop" there are two large supermarkets 20 minutes walk away - Lidl and Continente - turn right out of the entrance, turn right at the roundabout and just keep walking downhill. We went to Continente, it's very big, got a taxi back (€4). To get to the resort centre we turned left at the same roundabout, walked down to the cliff top and turned left on the promenade. Not going to mention restaurants butw we went for a walk into the resort every morning and found a coffee bar called "Sunrise" (50m after Taffys Grill, on the left) where we used to have an espresso and a cappuccino for €2.20 - bargain.

we stayed here 12-19th May, our apartment was hugggeee and with 2 toddlers aged 2 and 3 it was very welcomed. the staff were lovely and always happy to help. the pool area is perfect for children and we spent most of our holiday around there. we were half board and would probably recommend self catering, there is no buffet for choice, limited breakfast choice and 2 choices for evening meal which seemed to be pork and hake most nights. not great for kids.
short walk down a track to the beach and seafront, which was an experience with buggys! lol
overall though i would totally recommend this resort to anyone, loved our stay and would def return.

A fantastic spacious apartment with a huge patio to relax on. cannot fault it in any way, although not as good location wise(for us) as studio seventeen's other aparthotel in the area...everything else about it was spot on and more than made up for it. was a massive bonus having an oven for late night Pizza etc..the tv was larger than anywhere else i have stayed in the Algarve and alsio had a few more english channels.
the free wifi was great and the pool area was fine.
Would stay here again and would have stayed here much longer than 4 days if we had known it was this good, ridiculously cheap too.

We stayed in may. The staff were really nuce at the hotel. Claudia the receptionist was always willing to help and give very clear directions to places. The restaurant staff were so nice nothing was ever too much trouble: Geshpar and Huben were very polite always explaining options and trying to find alternatives when needed. I went with my 2 year old child and it was very realxing and the apartment was so spacious. Defo would go again and recommend to family. Many thanks guys for the pleasant experience.

My wife and I booked a last minute holiday to Plaza Real for a quiet and peaceful week away. What a pleasant and quiet holiday we had.
When we arrived, the staff were very welcoming. We arrived early so wasn't expecting our room to be ready, but the staff had everything in place for new arrivals.
The apartment was unbelievable, it was like a one bedroom flat, massive lounge area, excellent size bathroom and bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space, and the kitchen was probably the best I have experienced holidaying abroad. It had everything you needed, from electric oven, fridge freezer to a microwave. It was also stocked up with cutlery, pans, plates and glasses. As we were just bed & breakfast, the self catering facilities were just how we wanted them.
The apartment was kept spotless the whole week we were there. The cleaners were brilliant and again very welcoming.
We were in room 103, so had the advantage of a large balcony area facing the pool. Also constant sunlight throughout the day.
Even though the hotel was nearly full, the poll area was never overcrowded, in fact it was just nice and peaceful. We spent most days around the pool without any noise or inconvenience.
The bar facilities were excellent, Casper the bar person, was a very busy man, but always had a smile, and never kept you waiting.
It is only a small hotel, so most people that stay there, tend to go into Praia Da Rocha for the evening. It's is about 15 minutes walk from the hotel, if you go by the main road. But if you take a left turn out of the grounds and follow the path through the dusty track, you can reach the beach in 10 minutes.
Praia Da Rocha has plenty of eating and drinking areas, so you will be spoilt for choice. There is also a very big supermarket about 15minutes walk from the hotel, so if you were leaf catering, it's ideal. It was cheaper than british supermarkets, and there is also a Lidl opposite.
All in All, this place was fantastic. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to go to Portugal for a quiet holiday.

Have just returned from Plaza Real. We had a two bedroom apartment, and surprisingly the bedrooms were upstairs and were a good size, massive bathroom and lounge, reasonable size kitchen with sufficient aids for a s/c holiday, and a good sized balcony. Free Wi-Fi and air conditioning. Pool was not massive but big enough for a swim.
The apartment was absolutely spotless with maids coming in to clean every day, Towels changed every two days. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, all speaking excellent English. We had several snacks in the hotel which were excellent and larger that we expected. We didn't have dinner in the hotel as we wanted to dine each night with a different cuisine and did so in Praia da Rocha which was approx. a 15 min walk or 3.50/4.00 euro for a taxi.
Overall a fantastic holiday and would certainly use Plaza Real again

Room Tip: Rooms facing road get sun on balcony from 9.00 to 8.00pm. Cant remember the block number but was roo...

This hotel was a great find. Easy to locate, plenty of parking, friendly and helpful staff, nice and clean with a nice pool. We had a massive two-bedroom apartment, 150m2 on two floors.
A couple of small negatives: Kitchen could be a bit better equipped and a little bit strange that dish washing products not provided. Also, there is a laundry service but at €5 per garment that's obviously not where you'd throw in your entire family laundry bag. Except for these minor points we highly recommend this hotel.
