First holiday as a young couple and couldnt of asked for anything better. Lovely hotel. Great spot near the quiet local village with easy access to the more busy areas across the river. Only thing to be very picky about would be no fridge in our double room. Big, modern rooms spotless everyday. Helpful and friendly staff making the stay even better. Amazing food from restaurants in the sqaure. Didnt want to leave and cant wait to return next year.
Our room smelled a bit like smoke, but the hotel addressed this up front, and did a very thorough cleaning the next day that took care of the problem. The staff person (Andrea, I believe) was extremely conscientious and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast facilities are decent, too, and we enjoyed our meals. I am not sure the hotel really offers a "sea view" as a building blocks most of the rooms for having this. A great staff person again makes all the difference.

"Great location, beach,restaurants and bars closeby"
We only went bed and breakfast but the location created much choice for eating out locally. The Coast line is fantastic and boat trips reasonably priced and fun. The beach is really well looked after daily. Overall a great break.
The staff at this hotel are so friendly and professional, always trying to go that extra mile to make your holiday better. Really recommend hiring the electric bikes from the hotel, so much fun! Room was very large and comfortable with good kitchen facilities. Beach was very close. Just wish we had paid a bit extra to get a sea view as that would have been beautiful! Throughly recommend and we are planning to return.
Great location, quiet and removed from the relative loudness of the rest of Praia da Rocha.
Staff were superb - and the breakfast could keep you going until dinner.
Pool was an oasis - and the rooms, while a little cramped, were fresh, clean and comfortable.
If you do stay - best restaurants with a view nearby are Restaurant F, and Dockside. The rest of the town is mostly British and Irish bars. If you want a bit more tranquility, take a 10 euro cab to Alvor - pretty little fishing village full of restaurants.
