Took B@B. Great room, good b,fast. Good courteous staff. Nice pool and garden areas,spa and indoor pool. Gym facilities. View from room interesting but scrubland to front did not make for highly recommending. View across river and watching river traffic pleasant enough. Shops etc in easy reach. Rear of hotel area (ie streets) not very pleasant and local council should do more to brighten and clean it up to keep it in line with a good class resort.
Very welcoming staff - all round. Reception staff and waiting staff extremely friendly. Room cleaners very friendly also.
Room kept clean on daily basis.
Praiae de Rocha very friendly place. We went in October and found that it was busy enough.
Plenty of places to eat - at good rates.
before I start I will make you aware that I am an ex hotel manager, and I have helped opened 2 4* hotels in the UK and another hotel in Greece. this does pose a problem for me as I constantly look at the finer detail whenever I stay away.
However over all the hotel was great and we had a fantastic holiday, we arrived late in the evening and went straight to our room, I had only booked and paid for a studio but the room we got was huge and very comfortable. the hotel was well presented and had some good facilities but needed a little husbandry. meaning that in places it needed a little lick of paint mostly in the corridor areas as there were a lot of scuff marks from the trollies. the pool areas were well kept and good but in the toilets some of the fixtures and fittings were rusty. the gym was adequate for a bit of CV training but was very basic and I felt the games/recreation room was heavily under utilised. that said you wouldn't go there to play games etc but it could be better for the kids. the area was great and there are lots of restaurants and bars to explore. the boat trips were great and reasonably prised but may cost more in the summer months.
the area is generally a sleepy fishing village and ideal for families or couples and there is a good bus service to get you to most places for a day out.
overall a wonderful holiday and worth a visit.
We went to Alvor for my birthday ,the hotel exceeded our expectations,the staff were so friendly,we had a room with a sea view,the room was very smart and stylish,the indoor Pool was great ,and it was warm,we eat in the hotel ,breakfast was excellent plenty of choice.and the buffet of a evening was good value for money.
I would love to stay at this hotel again
Hotel clean and comfortable. Most staff were friendly and polite although 1 female staff person at the front desk could be snippy!
Cleaning staff thorough and friendly.
Unfortunately the pool was closed for 1/2 our stay due to cleaning issues.
Wifi worked fine in our rooms.
Excellent hotel about 15 minute walk from the town and a further 10 to the beach or harbour. Harbour has all restaurants. Amazing room just could not fault the hotel if you tried. The staff were very friendly and attended to all your needs. Will definitely be returning in the near future. Even had champagne with breakfast!

Beautiful hotel rooms with silent beautiful room views, we stayed in the superior rooms with breakfast included well worth the value , food was very very good and staff go out of there way to help you , ideal for a golf break with two very high end course but also for the golf widow who does not play plenty of pool time and relaxing time in boutique rooms , would go back again
A real find, during my stay , I overnight end in two hotels and while this is not on the waters edge . The size of the swimming pool more than compensated.Staff were friendly and efficient ant the apartment was more hotel suite.
Overall as good as it gets almost.
