I visited this hotel in April, a friend and I shared a twin room. The room was sparsely furnished but did the job. There was no oven, only a 2 ring electric stove and a microwave, by the sound of things it was well equipped . According to other views there where barking dogs and seagulls, neither of which I noticed during my stay. Generally the place was clean and the towels renewed frequently.
I would however say the rooms could do with a re-fresh but then it was incredibly cheap money. We paid about £20 a night. Its a very well run 3 star in my opinion, the staff are excellent, very friendly and clearly happy in their jobs which makes a big difference to the customer service you receive. The beds where simple but very comfy, relatively firm but not to hard. The tennis courts where fun and a good way to get exercise. Parking was plenty and I would recommend a cheap car hired directly from the small guys at the airport (cheapest and best option over big names) as the location is not really ideal for walking, there are buses however we did not try these out.
The pool area was lovely, chart music was played through-out the day but nothing too intrusive. The free wifi was really good however we did not reach it in our room, block at the back of the resort (possibly number 2 cant remember) the code was always the same for each of their routers so no fuss trying to get onto it.
All in all if you get a very cheap rate and a cheap flight and don't plan on venturing out much then this is decent enough resort, especially for young holiday makers or couples with very small children.
The area its self, praia da rocha however is not somewhere i would personally recommend. Struggling economic times are quite obvious in this area.
