Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 7 nights, 23 - 30 June. It was our first holiday together abroad, we arrived at the hotel and were very surprised at standard of it considering how little we paid. Our room was a nice size, on the 4th floor with a side-sea view. The room itself and the bathroom were very clean, it had a mini bar stocked with water, soft drinks and beer, priced upto 1.20, and a tv with a couple of English channels. We weren't really looking forward to the breakfast after reading the reviews on here, so we kind of knew what to expect, the cereal was served with lukewarm milk and the bacon & scrambled egg isn't great, although the coffee was really nice. But it has to be said this is the ONLY bad thing I can say about this hotel! There is a safe in the room costing 7.50 with a 15 euro returnable deposit. We ate out the most of the time at many of the restaurants in and around the 'strip' with 3 course meals starting at around 7 euro's. We recommend Taj Palace Indian Restaurant in the evening, and Irelands Eye for breakfast. Safari Restaurant was also very nice with gorgeous views over the beach. Praia Da Rocha itself is really nice with probably the best beach I have ever been to, the strip isn't too big, or too hectic with a family atmosphere, there is a few bars which are open till about 4am if your up for the party though :) the only bad thing we can say about the strip itself is all the gypsies offering us hash, I'm not sure if this was just because we are young or they do it to everybody. We got the bus from near the hotel to Alburfeira for 4.50 which took about 45 minutes. All in all we had an amazing holiday in an great hotel in a lovely place and would recommend Luar to anybody.
