Just returned from the Vila Rosa, not a bad place.
Its located about a 10 minute walk from the main strip, so not noisy at night.
We were in block 4, a little dated but very clean and comfortable. some of the smaller blocks look to be either newer or been refurbished? Only minor problem was the air conditioning, it was a portable unit, so we had to leave the balcony door open for the pipe to exhaust, which sort of defeats the object. Not too hot at night, as I said minor problem.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Pool area clean, a paved area and large grassy area with umbrellas, could have done with a few more sunbeds though. The snack bar was reasonably priced with good service.
Gardens tidy and well maintained.
The resort itself looks a little shabby away from the front. On the front are numerous bars and restaurants all vying for trade, so plenty of choices. At night half the strip is pedestrianized.
It may be worth paying 7 Euros to jump in a taxi up to Alvor, the next resort, a smaller more intimate place, a different experience to Praia da Rocha.
All in all, the Vila Rosa, a good base, with no probs.
