We have just come back from our stay here for 4 nights and everything was 100x better than we could have imagined for price we paid. £300 each, for flights, 4 nights, Buffett breakfast that suited every culture, and hotel transfers. Hotel could not do enough for us, it was incredible. On the first day our room was ready at...

Hotel da Rocha is in a great location. Very close to the beach. Our room has a sea view and a nice balcony. We get to enjoy the view while having a meal. The rooms are large with kitchenettes. Great for families with kids and babies. The food is mediocre and I have had much better meals elsewhere in Portimao....

The hotel location is just in front of the beach, just across the street. Suits are very cosy and extremley big, in the room was kichenette and the rest zone was seperated so everybody is in comfort in the room. A big variety of food every evening in the restaurant.

Room with bacony and superb view, super kingsize bed and just 1 minute walk to the incredible beach. Parking normally 10euro per night, but the fee was waived, maybe because we were there in the low-season. Room not particularly cosy because of the tile floor and kitchen, but it very large. Breakfast restaurant crowded and a bit cramped, but lot...

The Hotel was spotlessly clean. The room were very large and the location was excellent. The staff on reception were very friendly, helpful and very accommodating, Our daughters bed was a sofa bed, I said this was not suitable for her, so the next day they changed it for a full size bed. The only downside was that the swimming...
