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!!

Arrived early with airport hotel transfer but the appartment was ready with a nice wecome. Well equiped kitchen. Balcony. Large sitting room. Lots of room. Bathroom a bit dated and the TV was small.
The facilities were OK. Wifi only available downstairs but good value for a 24hr ticket. The sauna, indoor swimming pool area I found dissapointing with extra charge with no area/seating to relax but the outside pool and garden were excellent.
Just a few minutes walk to the lovely beaches and restaurants/shops. Felt very safe.
My hotel transfer was due to arrive mid-afternoon as I had an evening flight. They extended my check out until 2.30pm without any problem.
All staff very friendly and eager to help.
Very satisfied with the hotel and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much and they were a mine of information, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good with plenty of choice, I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.
My boyfriend and I had a lovely first holiday together at this peaceful hotel. I have visited Alvor previously and stayed in a beautiful neighbouring hotel which is also owned by Pestana. Both hotels have been a pleasure to stay at. We would both like to return together in the future to explore more of the beautiful Algarve. Staff were both friendly and helpful. Alvor is a truly magical and special place. I would recommend people to visit Alvor and consider this hotel as an option. Happy days!!
We stayed for 9 nights in this hotel and we could say that it was a very good choice. The hotel has a very good location ,very close to the beech. The hotel is very clean,the room was comfortable and well decorated ,air con,the bathroom was amazing:big,new and very clean! Hot water at any time of the night or day. The staff was friendly and very nice and helpful. Praia Da Rocha is a very good choice for a holiday! Well done Avenida Praia!
