“A good apartment”
Reviewed 18 November 2010

In November, just 3 lots of people there. Desk manned 24 hours. Easy check in. 2 lifts. Spacious rooms. Full bathroom with towels changed and bins emptied daily. 2 beds and 2 sofa beds. Wardrobes, cupboards, tables and chairs. Fridge, microwave, 2 hotplates, kettle and toaster. Cutlery (no sharp knife for potatoes, etc), pots, pans, plates, dishes, cups, etc. Portable radiator in bedroom and air conditioning (but no remote to make it work). TV with four Portuguese channels; some English movies and programmes shown.

Very long balcony, medium sized pool and small paddling pool. Quiet area, OK for parking. To nearby dual carriageway and turn right, over ten minutes walk is Centro Commercial with a large Continente supermarket. Open 7 days a week. Big car park. Taxi rank if you have a lot of shopping but no car (3.90 euros to apts). Also McDonalds (very possibly infected wifi), Lidls, Aldi and Barclays bank in the same area. For Praia de la Roche (some beaches), dual carriageway and turn left. Reach bottom of road (15 mins), turn left . Beaches and shops nearby.

No wifi. Hotel machine costs 1 euro for 10 minutes. 30-40 minutes walk away, near the harbour, town centre and what serves for a bus station is “Chocolate” on Rua Judice Biker (near Banif bank). Buy something to eat or drink and use their free wifi for as long as you want. Power outlets for free to save on your battery.

Reviewed 17 September 2009

Myself and my partner stayed in these Apartments for a week in August/ September 2009. We were a bit wary having read the other reviews before we went but were REALLY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED. The staff were so friendly and willing to help in any way they could. Reception was 24 Hours and would help in any way day or night. Our room was gorgeous, it was very clean and spacious and very modern furniture and fixings. Everything worked really well and the we had a huge balcony. We expected (from some reviews we read) that the rooms would be basic and just for sleeping in, but they were so much more than that. I have nothing bad to say about the Mirochoro at all....the only 3 things that I could see that would perhaps annoy some people are:

1) Location: The hotel itself is about 10 minutes walk into Praia Da Rocha. However there is a shuttle bus (to both Praia Da Rocha and Portofino) that runs three times a day to and from the beach except on sundays. The ten minute walk is actually quite nice and by the time you get to the beach your not exhausted at all. We preferred to walk the ten minutes most days. A taxi into Praia Da Rocha is only around 4 euros which is quite reasonable. The hotel never charged us at all to order a taxi.

2) Air Con...as in the lack there of. If you really couldnt bear to stay somewhere without air con then dont go here in the heat of summer (July) I found that at the end of August/Sept is was totally bareable and we didnt even need it. We asked for a fan from reception and were given one for the duration of our stay. (free of charge).

3) Pool.....the pool is not big at all, but I think big enough. Myself and boyfriend are more beach lovers anyway so it was fine. The beach is like Paradise! Theres a little cove further along the beach thats a bit quieter....golden sand and crystal clear waters.

So to sum up, id def recommend the Mirachoro ii, great value for money and a lovely get away for couples

Reviewed 22 August 2009

Just returned from the mirochoro, at first We were put in a very dated moldy room with run down furnishing kitchen cupboard doors hanging off wall electrical sockets hanging off the wall not child safe I would say......this room was in the same block the reception was in...

All in All there are 3 blocks

We went down to complain about this ( btw we are not moaners just hard workers)
and we were begrudginly moved to block 2 which was much better, brighter cleaner loads of space (Room 317) Double balcony etc... my only gripe about the room was it was a twin so has a couple we had single beds, Also no Air con or ceiling fans it was extremely hot at night kids were irratated by this at night... we did ask for a fan at the reception but was told there wasn't any...

cleaners were friendly but really did the basics changed towels empty bins they never mopped the floors which over a week of going back & forth with the kids became really sandy...

The Hotel facilities no matter what they say on there web site are virtually non exsistant!!
*The pool is very very small no where to sit if not there early enough.
*'No Entertainment whatsoever'
*Bar With Restaurant Area Very Pricey A small portion of Fries 2.50Euro's
*internet 1euro for 10mins

They wanted to charge us 2.50euros to call a taxi from the reception area (what a rip off)
Also There was no public telephone in the hotel so make sure you bring a mobile or would have to find a telephone box out on the street....

Has mentioned before best thing to do Asap is to get some shopping in at the local food store.. There is a Lidl, Aldi, continente supermarket a mcdonalds barclays bank all within a 10 minute walk...

The Hotel does provide a shuttle to the beach 3x a day
also 3x a day to portimao harbour area which you can pick up a river cruise & see the caves,,,or just relax and have some fresh sea food or window shop (a nice little area)

Be carefull though when dining out has restaurants bring you bread&butter pat'e ollives etc we thought this was complimentry but its NOT so be warned...This added another 7.50 euro's to the bill.

Praia da Rocha beach gets 10/10 Is a beautiful beach loved it,, this is the closest beach to the hotel.......I wouldnt say it was in walking distance for young families (about 1/2 mile a way) but you could always get the hotel shuttle...

So to summarise Hotel Very Basic But O.k

Would I stay there again??????? if a couple maybe yes If a family with young kids Noo.
Not that its not family friendly just nothing for the kids to do apart from the tiny pool.

Reviewed 28 June 2009

Hotel has been refurbished since previous comments. Room was very spacious, although no air con, however they gave us a fan. Pool has had tiles repaired, and new fence fitted and we went off season therefore we had pool to ourselves. The reception have maps if you want to walkanywhere and are very friendly and helpful but had a bizarre sense of humour. Nice cheap hotel.

We walked to town and beach but caught bus back (20 min walk). Not recommended for elderly or little ones too many steps!

Restaurants are geared towards the British, very few local specialities but we recommend the Mistral, and Cletonina by the Sittting Bull Steak House. We recommend the pirate ship trip and BBQ on the beach.

Reviewed 19 October 2008

Visited the hotel in June with 3 of my friends two days after our a levels finished. I was quite concerned by other reviews Id read and the cheap deal we’d got that we where going to end up in holiday hell but we where very pleasantly surprised. The rooms where bright and fresh with two balconies, a good size kitchen area and one of thee best showers ever it was very good. We quickly realised this was going to be a walking holiday but with the supermarket 5mins down the road this wasn’t bad however Id defiantly recommend a taxi back up. We walked down to Praia da Rocha every night and we tried walking home the first night and it was defiantly a wake up call. DO NOT DO THIS. The road was dark and deserted and not a good idea for 4 18 yr old girls. Praia da Rocha was good, plenty of Irish bars and tacky shops to keep us amused with cheap food and not so cheap alcohol. The staff at the hotel proved to be very helpful, when I thought id lost my passport the receptionist was very helpful and rang the taxi firm to check if they had it. (It was actually just behind the sofa). Slide and splash the local water park was amazing and defiantly worth a trip. The pool in the hotel was actually a lot better than expected with enough room for getting on diving etc and was very deep which we liked and there where a lot of shaded sunbathing areas which was vital for us gingers. So all in all despite the sunstroke the holiday was a success and we loved Mirachoro.

  • Liked — The pool, that the hotel was small and the shaded sunbathing areas and the free bus
  • Disliked — the long dark walk home
