"Lovely hotel, free bus to shopping centre&old town"
Arrived late on a Friday night, staff were excellent and offered a porter to carry our bags to our room. Facilities in the room were excellent, the free bus to the shopping centre and the old town was a great help to see Albufeira. The entertainment in the evening was excellent and varied for all ages.
This is a very friendly hotel. The staff, including the manager were all very helpful and remembered us from our previous visit. We found the shuttle bus to Quartiera & Vilamoura to be very handy. The Chef, as usual, really gave us large portions of food, The only negative was the weather -could have been better as we had quite a bit of rain. However, nobody has control over the weather.
The hotel location may be better suited to Seniors and golfers as young people may prefer to be nearer to night clubs.
I visited on my first ever solo holiday so was quite apprehensive given some of the negative reviews. The hotel, staff and location are fantastic. I was booked in bed and breakfast and the buffet breakfast set me up for the day, no need for lunch later. The hotel is very relaxed and only a few minutes walk from beach and town. I will deffinately be returning next year. The hotel is for adults only, so no kids to annoy relaxation. The views are breathtaking and service by the pool great. Make sure and get the fabulous treats given out at 5pm each day at the pool. The hotel is clean and tidy and rooms are serviced each day. Have a treatment in the Spa, deffinately recommend it.
I stayed at these apartments knowing nothing about them.we chose them from the internet.
We arrived in the evening,we were given our keys from the reception. On entering the apartment we were pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was. My partner was delighted at the cleanliness. We were pleased that we had a lovely balcony which overlooked the swimming pool and sunbathing area , although not all of the apartments have this. There were plenty of sunloungers,which were washed every night for the following day. We ate in the restaurant one evening, I enjoyed my steak, although my partner thought there was not enough choice. The Hotel bus which takes you down to the Marina and the Beach is a great service although the last service is 5pm. The staff were always approachable and helpful. I certainly would return and recccomend this Hotel.
Monte Gordo is perfect for those seeking a quiet relaxing holiday. The Alcazar is close to beach and town centre but no noise at night from bars or clubs. The hotel was full for the first weekend due to a national holiday. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the room comfortable and clean and the breakfasts excellent. A memorable week and we will be returning next year.
Just back from a four day Photo shoots stay at the Jardins da Rocha. Was located on the 21th. floor with a
fantastic seaview from our balcony. We had a tree bed studio, which was plenty big enough
and huge bathroom, plenty of hot water and clean towels, which were changed daily.
I never saw a more equiped kitchen, even had a washing machine ! Even though we dined out
every night, everything was there if you wanted to cook at home! which I,m sure a lot of people
There,s a kiddie's pool and a good size adult pool also, with free sun beds and a nice garden area.
The beach is one of the best in the world with one end a vast sandy area with a boardwalk and about a dozen bar/cafes and the other made up of smaller ones with giant rock formations seperating them, although at certain tide times you are able to walk from one to the other.
There's plenty of restuarants in Praia da Rocha, good food at a reasionable price.
Overall the staff they were so helpful, and all spoke fluent English and would definetly stay there again, it was very good value and location.
Oh and by the way the weather was just fantastic wall to wall sunshine!!
