Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Rocamar
.It is a few steps from the old town, which was really good at night, to stroll around, full of atmosphere.
My only complaint was, paying for sea views which were obviously not available and the not so helpful reception staff. I booked a double room and had to wait until the next day day to get the sea view that was paid for months in advance. I also booked for a couple of friends and they too had to wait to be moved. Not a good start to the holiday. I have just received a call from yet another couple of friends who are there at the moment and they too are waiting to be moved to a room with a sea view. This is the main attraction of the Rocamar, the beautiful sea views, but if they are not available, they shouldn't keep charging for them!
Best Location in Albufeirafrom apw63
The Hotel was far better than we could have imagined, spotlessy clean, helpful staff, great location for both day and night activities.
We stayed in August and were apprehensive that it may be overcrowded but the location of the Hotel ( 5 minute walk to town) was both close enough or far enough depending on your preference.
We stayed B & B and the breakfast was excellent plenty of choice, the Evening Buffet was also excellent value all you can eat for 12 euros including a drink, alcoholic or soft, if you didn't wantto eat in the hotel, then Albufeira has resteraunts galore to cater for all tastes.
The Beach was also a 5 minute walk and there is a sun terrace with a small dip pool if you wish to stay at the hotel.
Finally it was very cosmopolitan which was also refreshing, English, Irish, German, Dutch, Danish & Portugese were all resident which was very pleasing.
All in all we cannot praise this Hotel enough and it is also very reasonable for a 3* though as already said it is more of a 4*.
Next time we visit Albufeira we will definately stay here again
brilliant hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Absolutely Fantasticfrom Paul02
Do not take any notice of the building work moans on here in the old town square, it is now finished until October when there is only minimal work left to do, its on the other side from the rocamar anyway , about a mile or so......no problem.
The hotel should be 4 star no problem and you cant complain at 45 euros (£30) per night per person with a seaview (after 15 th september it goes to 35 euros per night per person....£20).
The location is second to none,. music stops at 11.15pm so you can have a quiet night, and only a 5 minute stroll on the flat to the old town square,if that. Or .there are 3 or 4 good seafood restaurants and a couple of bars 100yds or so from hotel if you wish.
The staff are very friendly and have all been there for a long time, 10+years and even the manager took us out in his car one night to a restaurant he liked and dropped us off, it was off the beaten track and out of this world, says it all doesnt it.
Book this hotel direct on Rocamarbeachhotel and ask for rooms either 112,114,116,130,202,204,206,208,212,214,216,230,402(this was my room,fab), 404,406. These are all sea view and are not on the side of hotel.Then book your flights seperately on Easy Jet in advance for best deal although there are other flights available then get a cab from Faro direct to hotel,approx 45 euros.
Acess to the lovely beach is down a very easy path that is very easy to walk down as it goes back and forward to take the steepness out.
It also has a lovely small pool on 3rd floor overlooking the sea where you can cool off and a sun deck to relax and read.
Cannot recommend highly enough, Enjoy!
Beautiful Hotel! Great Location! Great Price!from DanielleChicagoIL
a four star hotel! We can't believe the great deal we got! 75.00 EUR. for a room with
a sea view! Very modern hotel with all the accomodations. They have a very nice pool. Great location. Five minute walk to town. Great breakfast included. Buffet with lots of selections. Restaurant with outdoor seaview seating!
Great Location. Cant fault hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Rocamar is a lovely hotel in a fantastic prime location. 5 minutes walk to the old town and the beach literally on your doorstep.
The rooms are very well kept and very clean - it is worth paying the little bit extra for a seaview room as the views and the sunsets are fantastic to see from your balcony.
Breakfast very good and overall I would rate this hotel as a 4* and not 3*.
I would definitely come back and I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay in a top location at a reasonable price.
Only ono timefrom A TripAdvisor Member
the service(staff) of the restaurant is also old and have a minimum of different food.
there is also no place on the restaurant and bar for no smoking
The airco on the room is old and nearly dead
there is on avery room no table on the balcony
The seeside rooms have a nice panorama over the ocean
We ware here for 8 days and the next hotel is not a 3 but a 4 stars hotel
Great Hotel, Shame About the Resort!from mistyblues
Unfortunately the same can not be said for the old town of Albufeira. At present there is major building work taking place everywhere including right outside the hotel and it is indeed like being in the middle of a building site with workman, machinery, noise and dust around every corner. I think it is highly unlikely the work will be finished before the end of the summer so if you are planning or have already booked to visit I would definitely check before going.
not this yearfrom frankhitc
workmen, machines, everywhere, give it twelve months.
the running total for this scheme to finish is 297 days, go in 2007.
Incredible locationfrom Gran4two
Top Local Tips for Albufeira
Sir Harry's Bar For great music played by fantastic musicians go to Sir Harry's bar in the square.
airport taxis if you book your holiday separately get a private taxi especially the company that the rocamar hotel used. the airport taxi drivers are nutters, drive far too fast
www.holidayroomsdirect.com We paid £10 each per night booked through holidayroomsdirect.com - don't think anyone can beat that!!
