der var god plads ved poolen, der var ingen der spærrede liggestole midt om natten el-koger på værelset
Personalet er meget positive. Hotellet ligger skønt ved stranden. Stor pool med håndklæder. Flot casino. Nej, alt var helt i orden
Perfect location , the strip that it is on is fantastic for restaurants and shops. The views are beautiful. The pool does not get much sun and No Wifi at present.
Great location. Free internet. Very helpful staff. Missing wifi
great variety for the breakfast, lift very quick,very clean and bright, staff very helpful, reasonable priced. room for three using bed sofa there was very little space for coffee table
A brand new Hotel with great design ans style in the centre of Praia da Rocha in Portimao right on the beach with private parking..I advise staying in the junior suites, just perfect. Nothing,
everything: exelent location, staff, room facilities, plenty of space, pacefull atmosphre, good internet acess, room designe.
Proximity to the beach was good and rooms were big and comfortable, bathroom well equipped. Some of the female staff at reception were a bit rude - some customer service skills would be of benefit to them
Excellent location of the hotel, very kind staff, new equipment of the facilities, very clean facilities... Great location for visiting several beaches in Algarve! Breakfast should be improved (poor selection).
Modern well furnished room. Good breakfast selection Noise overnight from street as room was on ground floor. Pool small and as in basement had no outlook Hadn't booked car park and there is no parking adjacent to hotel
great friendly service. excellent clean modern contemporary decor. locatino is awesome. not the hotels fault but the music from the hotel across the road was very annoying.
Lovely hotel,modern and very clean. It is ideally located beside beach and in close proximity to shops restaurants and bars. I would definitely recommend Rocha Hotel Apartamento to family and friends. The buffet breakfast provided a wide variety of breakfast dishes - the only criticism I would have is that the hot food section was by no means warm let alone hot!!
The location right next to the beach at Praia da Rocha is superb. The bathroom was showing signs of age, as there was mould around the bath and in the grout in the tiles
Excellent roomy accomodation for discount price. Worn towels (but clean!)
Proximity to the beach. Swimming pool on site. Very good breakfast Overly expensive restaurant on site. We asked for a room for 4 people and the bed for the third and fourth persons was really uncomfortable.
Bad service; Dificult to find a place in swimming pool
Location,breakfast,cleanliness,tranquility,facilities and staff.
Location excellent, the staff were more than helpful. The rooms have a small kitchenette and are ideal for making snacks. The complex is large built around a marina, the restaurant and bar facilities are in the central area quite a walk from some of the outer situated rooms
Comfortable apartment with a good restaurant attached. The view of the Marina was a bonus.
Just everything. A Great Stay. I am not that spoiled.
Really nice hotel out of season (end of October). Down by the Marina front, with a close walk to the beach and lots of shops/resteraunts & the Praia Da Rocha strip. Its also not too far from the town of Portimao (15 minute walk). Marina was filled with boats but even on the windiest of days, you couldnt hear the rigging (thank god). Would defo go back and utilise some of the hotels many facilities. 2 Beds pushed togther to make one bed??? Just invest in some double beds, 2 singles pushed togther is rubbish
It would be better if the bedroom was separate to the rest of the room instead of like a studio .. i thought i was getting a junior suite
The beds were incredibly comfortable! We had booked a wine/pairing dinner hence decided to stay overnight. It was a nice event but we were both ill that night and the next day. At first we thought we'd had too much wine (a few glasses but I don't think more than anyone else at dinner). We mentioned at checkout feeling a bit rough but we still had mild food poisoning type symptoms the rest of the day and realised it was in fact 'in the stomach' and not a hangover! It was difficult to know what to do but we thought the chef ought to know in case it was bad seafood ? so we reported it to the hotel front desk later on 13th but she wasn't very helpful. It's not a complaint as we didn't ask her to do anything only to tell the chef and to be aware others might report symptoms.
Superb surrondings, very charming hotel with tasteful decoration. Huge swimming pool. Very efficient service. And a super plus, fresh toals and private chaise-longs on the nearst beach. We just loved our stay. No free Wi-Fi; but that forced us to disconnect more :-)
staff helpful and friendly / hotel grounds were superb / drinks were extremely expensive
Swiming pool and garden. If you are not a golf player, this is not a hotel to stay in. It is far from anywhere I.E. Alvor and Lagos. Rooms are average for 5 star hotels. No beach nearby. Their private beach is not good for swimming: too cold.
The standard of housekeeping was very poor. Room not made up some days until late evening despite several calls to reception. Only on last day was this satisfactory.
The swimming pool area is great! The staff at reception was not nice. And the rooms need to be renewed.
Wen I arrive, the room that was reserved to me was very poor ( a two stars hotel dont have a room like that ). I made a complain and they change the room. But I think a 5 Stars Hotel can put a guess in a room like that, and if we go to a Hotel like this one, we never think that we must have to discuss the quality of a room
I have been visiting Penina for over 30 years now - it is truly a special place. The setting is spectacular, with immaculate golf courses, and beautiful garden areas. Facilites are superb and the staff are charming. With fewer than 200 rooms, the hotel never feels crowded. Highly recommended.
The Garden,bathrooms very clean, nice linnens, entertainment, breakfast.
Great setting; fantastic golf; hotel with a lot of charm and personality; casual but professional lunch at the Cotton Club and a marvellous wine tasting dinner at the Grill restaurant on Nov 12! A fantastic experience. Need to rent a car if you want to escape
Five star atmosphere, lovely food. Good shuttle bus to the beach
Selve værelset - dog med undtagelse af den ekstra opredning, som var en på en udslået og (for) spinkel sovesofa til en dreng på 80 kg. Han valgte i stedet at sove på gulvet på madrassen. Bedre sovesofaer.Af en eller anden grund forventede jeg, at ALLE værelser var med DIREKTE panaronama-udsigt over vandet/stranden. Vores værelse var på siden af hotellet og vi kunne ikke se ret meget af stranden og vandet. Lidt skuffet i fht. hvad jeg havde forestillet mig ud fra beskrivelsen.
Helpfulness of staff, possibility to cook thanks to a very functional kitchen, position of hotel near at the sea and at the bus stop, spaciousness of rooms. We are Italian people and we need to eat "Pasta"...well, in this hotel it wasn't a drainer for Pasta...but it is a trifle, we like very mutch this hotel!
I really loved this hotel. Our room was very spacious and we even had a ocean/see view which was perfect for relaxing evenings on the balcony. The beaches were really near (just across road) and Staff was very helpful (and nice!). This hotel is amazing for somebody who is looking for quality accommodation with average price and great location.
the size of the room was perfect and the kitchen was perfect also the should wash the dishes every day
the room, the design anything
Very nice apartment on 16th floor with excellent ocean view. Comfortable and clean You had do wash up your dishes yourself as it was not included in the service. Furthermore cleaning ladies always wake us up in the morning.
Good location off main strip but not too far at same time. Near beautiful beach. Spa/Gym great value at 15euro for 3hrs all inclusive.
It has a nice room, big and clean. Very confortable and near the beach. The kitchen has everything we need. - The hot water finished before we could fill up the bathtub. - The health club only works during commercial time, we arrived saturday 19:20h and couldnt use it, cause closes at 19h and dont open on sundays.
A localização, (está a poucos metros da praia), a zona da piscina, o acesso aos apartamentos, bem como a dimensão dos apartamentos. Os funcionários não são muito empáticos, não deixando no entanto de serem bastante profissionais. A decoração é já um pouco antiga, assim como os aparelhos, nomeadamente a televisão. No entanto a nível da relação qualidade / preço, este Hotel é bastante satisfatório
The apartment was new and nice. In the kitchen you can find everything you may need (except for the Italian moka obviously). The apartment was not really clean. The daily maid service was approximate. Sheets were not "fresh". I expected a better service due to the many comments I read on the website before booking the apartment.
Noting much. It was pretty much what I expected. So, it didn't surprise, but it didn't disapoint either. All in all, a good value for money hotel.
The staff were so helpful and accomodating, always pleasant to deal with. The hotel was right on the beach and close enough to Praia Do Rocha to avail of the local amenities, but far enough away that you didn't feel like you were slap bang in the middle of a high rise resort. The hotel was very dated, the reception/rooms/restaurant could all do with some redecoration, but I fear that that would come at the expense of the customer as with all these things! So maybe it's best to leave it as it is, a reasonably priced family hotel with a great location and lovely staff.
Good location and facilities
relaxing,enjoying the facilities of the hotel,swimming in pool and sea Found one and only one receptionist not very friendly.Abrupt with a bad attitude.
The size of the apartment was perfect, large enough for 3. Not many activities available as they only run on certain days.... which is ok if you have two weeks however if you only have 4-5 days it limits what you can see and do without a car. This is not the hotels fault is is the organised tours with which they work. The fact that you have to go into town to buy dishwashing detergent and sponge - a containted apartment with complete cooking facility and dishware should as a basic standard come with products in order to clean these utensils. Simply ridiculous! On top of you are not told of this until you find out the hard way - with dirty dishes in the sink.
pool, beach at the door step, short walking distance to Alvor and Praia de Rocha, golf nearby
Was located adjacent to beach. Hotel staff cleaned room every day and provided clean linen. Staff were helpful. Nice pool although water could be warmer ! Good facilities. Not much in Praia do Vau itself - a few below average restaurants. It was however no more than EUR 4-5 to either Praia da Rocha or Alvor. The hotel is located on a fairly busy road so there is noise from traffic so a light sleeper may suffer from this. We picked accommodation because of quality and proximity to beach and were very pleased in those respects. Also contacted hotel in advance regarding transfer from airport to hotel. Told me they could organise taxi for EUR 80, didnt go for this. While there, they were however able to organise shared transfer to airport for EUR 34 !
The superb attention of the staff was overwhelming and very much appreciated,reception was excellent,as were the housekeeping staff. the restaurant was perfect and food served was first class, really loved the towels supplied by the resort for use in the spa which was spotlessly clean at all times. all in all a very enjoyable and relaxing time was had,we will certainly be returning soon. not one thing,
The location of the hotel is excellent as are the facilities and staff,an all round great place to stay, The beach is spotlessly clean with an excellent selection of reasonably priced restaurants,staff are very efficient and provide a first class service. no
The staff were always friendly and accomodating. The access to the indoor,outdoor pools and beach was easy and safe which is important with kids. Everything around Jardim do vau was very accessible either by a short walk or a short taxi ride. If being pickey I found the beds were too hard for me.
Friendly staff, very good location . Got up early and had a long wait for hot water in shower
The staff was very friendly, the facilities were clean and comfortable, and the price was great. We were really, really happy with our stay - we even stayed an extra night. We would highly recommend the Made Inn. No - it was everything we expected and more.
Cool, modern hotel. perfect for young people Yes. The terrible, terrible t e r r I b l e stink in the morning...was it the river, was it the town sewers...i don't know but sweet jesus....what smell!
Decor and excellent breakfast
A problem on arrival - but all was handled in a very professional way - They thought of the customer and all staff seemed to have been told of the problem and everything was very well handled and dealt with. I would stay here again. Walls are a bit thin!! If you have noisy neighbours you are in trouble!! but I always travel with earplugs - you never know when you might need them!!
Warm welcome from receptionist - who spoke English. Decor bright, clean and vivacious - all roomes are themed. Room spotless, roomy enough for a short stay, theme was motor racing so huge mural behind bed of racing car. Bathroom good size with bath and very clean. Breakfast good with choice of hot and cold food, great coffee and very friendly staff. Location central. Bathroom lighting very dull. Bedside lights were motor racing helmets and although novel, they were ineffective. These are small things and do not affect my overall opinion of this great little boutique hotel.
The modern, clean style of the hotel, the staff were happy, enthusiastic and as helpfull as they could be at all times.
The staff was very helpful and friendly, room was cleaned everyday. Good internet connection and nice breakfast
Hotel is based in town center. They have bike for rent which is cheap too. Great Price, Staff and Location. Clean and tidy room. Only the room doesn't have fridge. but they provide you with ice
The hotel was perfect for our needs, it was immaculately clean and fresh,staff were friendly. Highly recommended.
I like very nice designed rooms and very good breakfast bufet The staff of hotel deklare about Wi-fi internet, but it didn,t work often.
very good size studio villa, excellent breakfast, near the town and beaches.
Our room was located far away from central part of hotel with more 10 other rooms. It took us about 10-15 minutes to get to breakfast or reception. This was very, very uncomfortable. Beach was same about 10-15 min .. Room design was far from 4 starts hotel , i would say 3 stars.. very simple. Room was cleaned only at 16:00 .. to conclude , the hotel was very far from expectations we had...
Pleasant environment with nice grounds and and pools. Within walking distance of restaurants in old town.Good breakfast selection and facilities.
Excellent breakfast even with champagne. Indoor heated pool when cold. Very friendly staff. Slightly far away from the town, about 20 minutes walking. To get to the very small beach you have to clamber the stairways.
Very picturesque, clean, quiet and easily accessible (not loads of steps and long corridors to content with). Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and took us personally to our room when we checked in rather than just wave us in the general direction which was a nice touch. It was a nice start to the day to eat breakfast on the leafy veranda by the pool in the sun before wondering down to the D'Ana beach which was a 10 minute walk and was absolutely gorgous. The complex seemed very well maintained and our room was always very clean when we returned from the beach each evening. Waiting staff in the morning could be slow to clear the tables and it was not busy during the period we stayed there. Also, on occasions, some of the breakfast would be gone and not replenished even though there was still another 30 mins of breakfast and staff could be difficult to find to address this.
the "indoor swimming pool" is actually an outdoor pool with some sort of cover over the water... you can't use it in cool weather as you would expect from a proper indoor pool
Loveley place to have a relaxing holiday Clotch to wipe the bench would be appriciated in kitchen
in a quite area and located close to beautiful beaches
Good position, near to Lagos center and the beaches. Nice atmosphere, swimming-pools, good breakfast-buffet.
Det venlige imødekommende personale, som altid var parat til at yde enhver tænkelig service, om det var placeringen af en internetcafe eller henvisning til gode restauranter. Jeg synes der skulle være internetadgang fra værelserne.
Perfekt beliggenhed ved en ægte algarve strand. Dejlige værelser med "gratis" aircon og stor altan. For få spiseplader - ofte ventetid på en plads til morgenmaden.
very clean hotel inside and out. pool area never over crowded so sunloungers were always available. very good location, its at the heart of everything in praia da rocha.
Really liked the proximity to the beach. Excellent location on the quieter end of Praia da Rocha, but very close to the beach and easy walking distance to the activities of the area. The hotel is really starting to show it's age, it needs a face-lift and update.
Everything was ok No
On the beach, quite zone and one minute walking to the restaurants way . Easy to find parking.
All the staff spoke English and were always availabe to elp with information and services. The rooms were simple but ample. The room was made up very well each day. There were no noisy complaints from other guests or from facilities in the hotel.
very bad breakfast
The hotel is superbly located behind a famous beach. Many souvenir shops, bars and restaurants at walking distance. The hotel is clean and fairly priced for the amenities they provide. Considering that this hotel attracts mostly beach lovers it would be considerate of them if they provided their guests with beach towels. Most people don't travel with beach towels after all.
When I looked up the trip adviser for this hotel there was a number of complaints regarding breakfast, however I found the breakfast as good as any , with even a hot breakfast available for a very nominal charge of less than €3.00
Price, pool, value prices in hotel bar, location, tasty snacks, friendly staff. Poor airconditioning. Hotel exterior needs repainting. Rooms could do with decorating. Replace carpets with floor tiles. Repaint the rooms.
easy access to beach and excellent pool
Vor lejlighed var stor, begge værelser store og reelle. Lejligheden havde også 2 gode badeværelser. Restaurant var god, men underholdning (animation) middelmådig. Tennis var så som så, bordtennis kom mens vi var der. Minigolf er helt nedslidt. Stranden er fin, men snorkle-oplevelser begrænses af harpunfiskere
Personalet er meget imødekommende sengene er lidt brugte og meget rokkeløse
space. view. for the value payed, nothing in particular.
It was an excellent,basic apartment, very clean with everything you needed in it.The position was good for the resort and it was quiet at night. Hair dryer would be handy
liked the closeness to beach would have liked a full sea view. intend going back in may and september
nice and quite
very clean- friendly staff -good location for beech-shopping - proximity to all facilities twenty four hour reception. the exterior could do with a touch up
Everything! For us no problem, but I think that the room cleaning could be better
Quality Vs Price Air conditioning doesn't exist.
meget venligt og hjælpsomt personale. interiør pænt og hyggeligt. ro på hotellet. rar atmosfære i det hele taget. iøvrigt meget dejlig morgenbuffet :-) een aften spiste vi på hotellets restaurent og det var da bestemt en kæmpeskuffelse:-(
lille meget flot moderne hotel rigelig mad til prisen, gratis internet, meget venlig betjening parkering på hotellets grund, og ligger meget tæt på meget fin badestrand. manglede et lille skrivebord
