The Club Praia Da Rocha however is so rundown and is in need of major refurbishment but i feel it would be easier to knock it down and rebuild it.
We went all inc, 4 adults. We had read reviews and took a chance. It is what it is, very poor 1 star if that and food is very hit and miss, poor choice and repetitive. Poor cleanliness and very very shabby. We ate out after the first 2 nights, Drug dealers hanging around, was asked 2 or 3 times a day if we wanted Hash. Didnt particularly go in the pool, looked very scuddy around the edges so went in the sea instead.Beds were rock hard and appts very basic and in need of a facelift.
If you want cheap and cheerful and can smile past how poor it is then go for it, been there and done it, will not return.

Menu a basic set menu each day fish meat salads, desserts with cake jelly fruit and all drinks. But all bad reviews must be used to 4 star that's all I can say as we were pleased.
Families would be pleased by pools, and these were indoor and outdoor. Bouncy castle and pool table tennis and pool tables. The evening entertainment was okay but not child friendly a Quizigo and name that tune but fair.
We just got back and we must tell people how bad this hotel is. Some of the rooms are up for sale for £52 thousand pounds in the local estate agent. When we got there loads of rooms had tape over the doors with do not open police on them. The main pool had green netting around it, and was taped off to be re done, (we were not told about this), and the rooms are like something out of Butlins 20 years ago. The indoor swimming pool is a health hazard, honestly it had green slim running down the walls, and black and green mould everywhere. The games room looked like a big old warehouse, and smelt bad.
The bathrooms are awful and when I went to get my clothes from the wardrobe, they were soaking wet, water must have leaked through the bathroom wall.
I will say I feel a bit bad about writing this review as I know the staff were very friendly, and helpful, but people need to know what to expect.
The hotel needs a total re-furb but seen as how they are selling rooms on all floors, I can’t see this happening soon.
The hotel is in a good location, a short walk from the bars and clubs and the gorgeous beach.
It was a cheap holiday but very enjoyable would go back no problems at all.
There was no shelves in some of the cupboards and you had to pay extra money for the TV and sun beds. The food was basic and repetitive always including rice and chips. The staff and locals were unfriendly and stared at you rudely.
There was a short walk to the beach although it was tiring because of hills and steps. The beach was lovely and the sea was warm although once again I found lots of locals staring. On the day we left we were told we had to leave our room early and couldn't eat the all inclusive food (Our flight was 8:00pm!)
All in all, this hotel is basic, but clean suitable for singles and families, and we would go there again.
