Location Location Location!
We have just returned from a week at the Rocamar Hotel in Albufeira and usually mean to write reviews but never do but I appreciate reading them myself before we book so here goes....
The Rocamar is in a fantastic location, over looking the beach and it is well worth getting a sea view even if you don't spend much time in your room or on your balcony as the views are brilliant! Also you get the sea breeze in the evening that cools your room down.
It is a very clean and well run hotel, no complaints at all about it's 3* rating,it is quite an old hotel so if it was updated slightly it could go to a 4*.
We had clean towels every day and several changes of sheets which you need when it is so hot and the rooms were cleaned every day.
The breakfast too was very good, we had thought from some reviews we had read we may need to eat out but no probs at all, choice of scrambled egg,bacon,beans,lots of fresh rolls,toast,cheese,cooked meats,5 different cereals,yoghurt,fruit, everything you could want!
A nice restaurant in the old town ( which you are only a few mins away from) is the Casa Nova but lots of choice.
I would not hesitate to recommed this hotel to you!
My wife and I stayed here for 5 days in October 2004. Unable to find it while driving around ourselves, we were escorted by a couple of local police officers to the hotel. They even had to call back to the office to confirm how to get there. The hotel was in a great location, adjacent to the Old Town tourist area and overlooking the sea. There is a walkway to he beach directly behind the hotel. The service was good, the breakfast was more than adequate and the atmosphere was excellent.
The hotel is old and small, the rooms are only okay but the location and quiet environmet make it very suitable for those looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay. There was little in the way of planned activities and amenities there but for us, it was very suitable.
Welcome to Paradise
We have stayed at this excellent hotel for the past three years and we will be returning, hopefully, in June of this year. If you want to simply relax and re-charge your batteries this is the place. No noisy pubs and clubs nearby but they can be found in the centre of Albufeira for those who wish to 'party'.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable with an excellent staff team (they are like family to us now) The food, especially the fish dishes, are to die for. The beach is just across from the hotel you can just walk from the hotel in your swimsuit its situated so close.
We could live in this hotel forever (if they would lets us).
Location, location, location!
We stayed at the Rocamar Hotel for a week in Sept04 and would recommend it. It sits on the cliff looking down over Albufeira beach in an absolutely perfect location. It's just a five minute walk into the Old Town and just two mins to the beach down a flight of steps.
The rooms are fairly unexceptional - comfortable enough and clean. We didn't bother upgrading to a sea view room as prefer to be out and about than sat in the hotel! Buffet breakfasts were a little dull, but adequate.
Be sure to visit the incredibly friendly Olly's bar - you'll pass it on the way from the Rocamar to the Old Town. Olly and his wife advised us on all the best places to visit/eat in Albufeira - it was like having a personal tour guide!
Good hotel on prime location
excellent hotel in prime position overlooking albufeira beach. minutes walk away from town centre. NO pool but sunbathing area and beach right on doorstep. Rooms kept clean daily, fitted carpet, telelevision and air conditioning/heating in winter. Good hotel for people travelling on their own due to location etc. Spectacular views.
Just spent Christmas (2003) here and the hotel had everything going for it. The location was perfect with a sea view to die for. I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.
Exellent location, helpfull staff
stayed for one week beginning of oct, exellent location, very helpful staff. five minutes beach and town square. only one bad mark the room was quite obviously previosly occupied by smokers. booked again for two weeks next year first two in oct.
Excellent Location - Excellent Value
Right on the beach at the top of a cliff, beautiful views and short 1 minute walk to town. Definately get a sea view room, you sleep only to the sound of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and the rooms very clean. At 60 E a night, it was a fantastic deal. We booked through the hotel directly. Only disadvantage is parking is on the street, but we had no problems getting a spot. Breakfast included and was good.
We love it
Excellent location, friendly staff,great sea views,close to the centreand buffet breakfasts to remember!
The Hotel is in the right place at the right price. Literally overlooking the sea, the sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking. We (12 of us) were on a golfing Holiday in the first week of November 02. It was glorious. We all had sea views from our rooms. We did a B&B deal. I think we paid something like 70 Euros per room! (£25 each person!). Incredible value. The staff were polite, unassuming, efficient and very proffesional. The Breakfast was presented with Pride and Quality, but no fuss. The Main old town is literally a 5 minute stroll, downhill into the town, a little steep coming back, but it is one of those places where you feel really safe, even late at night. Loved it.

Today was a travel day. We stopped in Seville for two hours on our way to Portimao. Seville is a beautiful city with some incredible, ornate architecture at its centre. The stopover was definitely a treat in the five hours of bus. A few of the boys (and Devyn) were feeling the effects of their sunbathing from the day before. As I said - a lesson well learned. Until they forget. All we really know about Portimao is ...
