Pros: Our stay at the Vilalara was first rate. Although not inexpensive, given the location and amenities, this is a value. Breakfast each day overlooking the Atlantic was excellent. Beach was clean and organized. Three pool options. We did not eat dinner at the resort; we choose to sample the dining options around the area, all of whom where very good to excellent. Several Michelin rated options to choose. Fresh fish each day. The locals are proud of their wines and it shows. Best to sample wines from Portugal, as there are many choices. A couple of things to note- if you have limited abilities for walking, this may not be your choice. 120+ steps from the beach to the main level, then a continuing climb to the suites. Also, water temperatures were cool during our stay(late Sept/early Oct)19C/67F. Pools were 22C/72F. Other than those two issues, I suggest you go to the Algarve, and this resort in particular.
Cons: Everything was first rate

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Location is amazing. Views are incredible and the grounds are very, very well kept - beautiful. Breakfast is very good - great views. Private beach is very nice. Staff outstandingly helpful.
Cons: The prices in the main restaurants are ridiculous, especially given how good (and cheap) the local food is. We ate outside the hotel most nights as we were not prepared to pay the prices in either restaurant. The only complaint I have with the staff is that they were pretty pushy about us eating at the b&g restaurant which was a bit annoying. Same applies to the activities on offer - tennis equipment was free but everything else came at a ridiculously high price. Seems pretty mean given the hotel isn't the cheapest in the world to start with.

If you’re reading this review - don’t hesitate, book now! Thanks to everyone at the hotel. We will be back!!!

Pros: The location was excellent, close to the beach and a lovely walk to the marina. I also liked the swimming pool, which was a pleasure after a day walking around Portimao. The breakfast was excellent, offering a great choice of hot and cold food and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Cons: Unfortunately our fridge was not working, which I did not realise until our milk went sour. It would have also been nice of have a bar facility in the evening for a nightcap.
7,1 Good
Pros: Excellent space in bedroom. Very good shower. Large beds, great (the best) location in Rocha . Very good buffet breakfast.
Cons: Pool gets no sunshine. Fan in bathroom not working . Staff are courtious but not friendly . Give you a key and you have to find your way after that. No service at breakfast but you must give your room number. It appears staff do as little as possible when they should be trying to ensure a connection with guests.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The bed was the most comfortable bed i had ever slept. Almost better than home. And waking up to the view of the ocean is real magic.
Cons: The breakfast was always too busy with too many people walking around and even though there were a lot of things still there were really no options for people with intolerances or special diets. The swimming pool is directly next to the breakfast tables on the back side of the hotel between tall buildings, not inviting at all but other people seemed to like it.

9,6 Excellent
Pros: The room was great, very spacious with a lovely balcony overlooking the tennis court. Breakfast was good. The staff were friendly. The resort is a bit remote, aside from the hotel, there is only one restaurant within walking distance so if you are travelling, we would recommend hiring a car. The hotel do offer a free shuttle Monday - Friday into villages / beaches close by. Uber is a good option either. We would stay again.
Cons: Nothing really, the housekeeping seemed to go on for most of the day but the rooms were left clean and tidy every day. Complementary water could be left daily given the remote location of the resort and given it is a 5*.

Pros: We stayed for six nights in a two bedroom apartment equipped with a kitchen and good size bathroom plus a spacious living room. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were great. Beds were comfortable and WiFi connection was very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The resort has two pools and sufficient number of lounges and umbrellas. It is very close to a beach on the ocean. Nicely landscaped with great views of the ocean from the resort.
Cons: There are no restaurants in the vicinity of the resort, and access to the main road is very narrow.

Pros: Great little houses full of everything you need in an amazing location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close to a cute little beach and incredible cliffs. Highly recommended!!!
4,2 Okay
Pros: The site was excellent with access to coves and protected beaches. Water was freezing cold.
Cons: The beds were rough and so firm it was hard to sleep on. We couldn't have a full resting night in our entire stay. The matresses were also covered with a poor quality protective plastic and this was making noise at every movement. Pillows were old and uncomfortable. Sofas were stuffy and smelly, not very clean. Breakfast was ok but not excellent. There were moldy tiles in the bathtub. Bathroom door not closing well. Microwave, AC and TV not working properly initially and required a visit from Maintenance. Food was expensive. The site itself is however excellent, even with the access being somewhat difficult.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Those Portuguese tarts at breakfast were divine !! And, the bed was, in fact super comfy. !!
Cons: We could have had daily complimentary water in the suite. Something we expect in a 5 star resort. Also, we had to return two out of date bottles of juice to reception. These were replaced within an hour or two.

Pros: The place for family and couples! The resort provides you an excellent opportunity to enjoy nature, breathtaking views, swimming at the hidden beach( only limited number of people), 2 pools and small kids pool, apartment is very comfortable for 4 persons, kitchen is sufficient, but not for much cooking. The surrounding is very quiet! Hope to come back!

Cons: swimming pools
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Clean and lovely setting.
7,1 Good
Pros: The apartment was very spacious. Our townhouse was right across the pool and restaurant area. The beach was quite close and the beach towels were provided by the hotel. Warm welcome with excursion. Silent area.
Cons: The furniture in the apartment was outdated and needed renovation. Jacuzzi bath had rust or some dirt on it and the housekeepers never removed it, so it was useless for us. By the way, the housekeeper used to come daily at around 4 or 5 pm. It was totally inconvenient, no chance for afternoon nap. No drinking water provided (would expect from that star level hotel). The pools were very small. Food for breakfast was the same every day and couple of days we had to chase the waiters to serve us tea/coffee, since they were ignoring our table. There was also no cold water in the apartment for two times during our stay. It usually started running again within half a hour, but you usually don't want to bother with such things while staying in the expensive hotel. And the second time it happened right before the checkout so my husband had to take shower in the gym. The remark near the bed regarding charges for late check out also looked cheap to us. The restaurant was too expensive and the portions were small. No activities in the resort other than a pool/beach and small gym.

Pros: The overall experience. The pool area is clean, nice private beach access. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Room was bright & clean. Breaskfeast is ok. You have plenty of choises. We were in Portugal, Algarve for 8 days. We booked 3 diffrent hotels, ranging from 3* to 5*. I must say, that Hotel Oriental gives indeed value for the mpney.
Cons: The room had bufet dinner included. Do not recomand the food. Really bad. Thy do not provide parking. So take this into consideration if you are driving a car. In regards to services, everyone was lovely, besides the staff that was serving the drinks for the pool. You have to wait sometimes up to 40 min for a drink, even of there is barely any other orders.

Pros: The room was O.k. The bed is comfortable. The staff is very nice and very helpful.
Cons: The food is absolutely tasteless. You can have complementary two bottles of water in the room at check in, drink as much as you want to, whatever you wanted (even champagne) at the breakfast, but at the dinner all drinks, even water, needs to be paid. At the HOTEL'S PRIVAT beach you have to pay for sunbeds everyday! I didn't understand first and asked " we are guests here, isn't it hotel's private beach?" " Yes, mam, but you still need to pay". The hotel is not the cheap one. This things needs to be included in the price. As long as free water in the room everyday.

Pros: Great location, just a 5 minute walk from restaurants and the beach. Nice to have continental breakfast since I always wake up hungry. We didn’t use the pool but it looked very clean. They provided beach towels and an umbrella which we really enjoyed.
Cons: Our room smelled of cigarette smoke. We had to leave the doors open for a full day before it improved. The woman who helped us on the first day said it was a nonsmoking room and that the previous people only smoked outside but it really stank. The pillows were also very lumpy and uncomfortable so we both woke up with neck tension the next day.

Pros: The breakfast was great, really comprehensive. Left you full until lunch! I can’t compliment the staff enough, so helpful. The place had a really homely vibe.

The pool area was in a wonderful setting- very relaxing with beautiful trees The restaurant was delightful - great breakfast and romantic evening meal on outside terrace Was kindly accommodated with a ground floor room as requested for mobility reasons. Very nice quiet location , but transport definitely required.
Cons: The lovely walk in shower/ wet room was potentially great but there didn’t seem to be appropriate drainage for overspill water on the bathroom floor so it was a bit messy. There was no outside seating/ patio outdoor space with this particular room but as we only stayed for one night it wasn’t really an issue.

7,1 Good
Pros: The surrounding garden and pool of this hotel are really beautiful. However it is clear that everything is a little outdated and budget for maintenance and repairs seems low. All in all a good place in the Algarve region to get away and relax.
Cons: A little disappointed as I expected more from this accomodation. I booked a suite because this was our honeymoon and I also communicated this to the hotel, however there was no mention of this from the staff and the suite was not worth the money at all. The quality of the cooked breakfast items was really poor (canned mushrooms??) but the pastries were nice. Service at the bar was extremely slow and the person at the checkout seemed to have no clue what he was doing.

Nice relaxing pool area. Request for ground floor room was met and although it was a long way for me to reach the restaurant, after the first morning we found they had a wheel chair which made life easier.

Pros: - The best thing about the hotel is it's location, right in the middle of the Portimão Marina, very close to the beach. - There's a free, large underground parking. - There's a nice big swimming pool. - I received a birthday gift in the room, which was a nice surprise.
Cons: - The quality of the food was simply not good. The breakfast and diner buffets have very few variation (that's not so bad) but we regularly experienced simply bad food and this was not acceptable for me (rotten fruit, cheese slices with hairy mould on it, uncooked pasta, warm food that's not being kept warm correctly, very greasy sunny-side up eggs and french fries and so on). My partner was sick from the food one evening, after eating unfresh salad. - The rooms are a bit outdated, and not always cleaned correctly (our bathroom had dirty footsteps in it after cleaning?)

Cons: There was a big dance music festival which started at 2pm and finished at 6am for 3 days. It didn't affect us too much as our room was the furthest away and we went on trips for those days but it's worth checking if anything is going on when you book to stay.

Pros: The view from our balcony was great, the size of the room exceeded our expectations, the facilities were very modern, the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was very complete and varied (our favourite things were the omelette station and the nespresso machine!). We were on our honeymoon and the hotel surprised us with a bottle of sparkling wine and some strawberries with chocolate, which was a lovely gesture.
Cons: Even though the hotel was quiet in general, we could hear the people in the room next to us. This hotel would be absolutely perfect if it wasn't for this

Pros: Hotel Alcaide really made my stay enjoyable. Parking: When we arrived it was already midnight. The man at the reception was waiting for us. He showed us where we could park and even helped me to park lol with a big smile even there was plenty of space available on the road. Service: The staff was super welcoming and always with a smile. They helped my mum to prepare a birthday surprise for me, also suggested boat trip to the caves. The cleaning service is very good. The room was always spotless and always clean towels.

Pros: We really liked our room which was lovely n the older area. It was spacious, super clean and in the traditional Portuguese style. The verandah downstairs was lovely to sit in morning or evening and it looked out into the garden. The pool was great, breakfast very good, staff super efficient and friendly.

Cons: The rooms in the villa are very dated and the shower is not attached to the wall in the correct position therefore you have to hold it the whole time. It is definitely worth paying more to be in the main hotel and to have a modernised room!

Pros: Breakfast was wonderful!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything nice and clean, beds and towels changed everyday. Lovely staff at the hotel, super friendly and helpful, always smiling and they made us love hotel Alcaide. They helped us rent a car, arranged taxi from and to airport, etc. Breakfast tasty and various, plates were filled constantly if something was empty. Located very good. Close to Praia da Rocha (15-20min walk) Praia do Vau (5 min walk), perfect spot to start any trip to Alvor, Lagos, Silves, Albufeira and everywhere else:) Restaurants and supermarkets, bus stop nearby. Safe(paid), hairdryer and beach umbrellas available. Overall, we recommend this hotel as quiet, clean and perfect for stay for couples without children - we really did enjoy our stay.
Cons: Overall hotel is renovated, but furnitures in the room could be newer; not enough hangers in the closet nor shelfs, so we had to keep our clothes in the suitcase. Other thing what was bit annoying was noise which we could hear in our room from the hall and every evening loud entertainment from hotel nearby.

Pros: The rooms were okay, not too small. Very nice shower. Balcony had enough space to sit outside together and play a little game. Air Conditioning worked well, especially when you closed the blinds. The pool has a good size and is located so you get a lot of sun during the day.
Cons: The beds are quite small. We're not the biggest persons and even we felt this was a bit too close together, especially in Portuguese weather. The bar is really boring so at night there's not a lot of places to go. I missed a table to sit at with my laptop, the chairs and tables were all low unfortunately.

Pros: Very well located, just in front of the beach; Perfect for some vacations with small children because beach and pool are perfect to entertain them. If this is not enough, there is also a small park for them to play;
Cons: Buildings are a bit old and an overall remake of the apartments would be advised; Even though cooking is possible, if you want to eat out, there are some restaurants nearby but a wider variety would require some sort of transportation;
3,3 Mediocre
Pros: I liked the location of the property. Beyond that there was little to like.
Cons: This aparthotel needs to have a major renovation. It’s at least 25 years overdue. The inside of the room was not only severely dated, it was dirty and uncomfortable. The master bed mattress was so thin and barren that I got poked with springs all night long. The pull out sofa bed with its 3 inch thick mattress my 5-year-old slept on was actually more comfortable. My kids feet were black if they didn’t wear their shoes in the room. There were black hairs behind the bathroom door (we are blondes and brunettes), a giant hairball in the kitchen. There were no toiletries, the washer/dryer barely worked (I had to hang every piece of laundry I washed), no detergent to wash any dishes we used. The walls of the room were paper thin and we could hear road noise and the 11 pm dumpster pick up like it was in the room with us. The WiFi signal was unreliable and weak. The main pool was frigid and the most shallow point as over 5ft deep. My kids are great swimmers, but the pool wasn’t enjoyable because they couldn’t touch anywhere and we were told no floats were allowed. They did have two kiddie pools but they were tiny and only 1.5 ft deep., which weren’t much fun for the 8 and 9 year olds. We had breakfast on site once, and that was enough. The food was not good. We also ate at the pool bar one afternoon. We sat down at 11:58 and the waiter promptly told us they didn’t serve lunch until 12. I said that is only two minutes away, so I think we can wait. Well, the food again wasn’t good and the whole process took 2 hours!! Ridiculous amount of time for chicken nuggets and burgers to be served and eaten. Overall the hotel was run down, uncomfortable and unfriendly. I would look elsewhere. Conversely we stayed at Martinhal Chiado aparthotel while in Lisbon and it was outstanding. Clean, awesome service, comfortable. Wish we would have chosen their Sagres location for the second half of our trip.
7,5 Good
Pros: Clean, spacious appartment with everything you need. Close to beach, great views.
Cons: Appartment was out of power three times per day, had to plug the main switch over and over again (a bit of issue when dark). Mandatory swimming hat in pool, only finnish sauna working.

Pros: Location good. Beside the beach and pool a good size with no difficulty in getting sun loungers. Staff pleasant and sorted out any problems quickly. Great restaurants in Alvor.

Pros: This hotel is owned by a family who also live in the hotel. They are always available to help and offer any services that they can. They first helped us find a place to eat when we arrived late. Then they borrowed us free beach towels ( and offered free umbrellas, chairs, and beach paddles), allowed us to use their printer, and were overall excellent hosts. Breakfast was nice bread, meat, and cheese and was very good (best free breakfast we have received while in Europe). The room was very clean and nice enough condition. I absolutely would stay again.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant place to stay at. Staff is exceptionally kind and informative. We came after the midnight and we are offered with a welcome drink, which is a small but very effective gesture. Hotel is older, but very clean. They clean room and change towels every day. Wi-fi works well. Hotel is placed in the quiet neighborhood, on the walking distance from beach and city center. There is a supermarket near hotel too. If you have moderate expectations, this place will be great for you.

Pros: Staying at Sao Roque was great. The couple running Sao Roque thought about absolutely everything and treated us like queens, from offering us a welcome drink and letting us check in early to a huge, wonderful, personalised breakfast, tips for great places to see and eat and help with taxis and transport. A really wonderfully personable experience - would definitely stay here again.

Pros: The hosts are amazing and friendly if you ever need anything just ask and they are always willing to help out with airport transfers or irons. Just a ten minute walk from the beach in a beautiful residential area. Supermarkets and atm is close by and the orange juice at breakfast is incredible you will constantly want more. Each room has a balcony and its a comfortable place to stay with family, friends or partners. Would definitely stay here again as its amazing value for money. Thank you Sao Roque!

Cons: Nothing !

Pros: The breakfast was continental with white buns, mini brioche, butter, jam, ham, cheese and different types of hot and cold beverages. The owners even offered us fresh sliced tomato with olive oil every morning and nutella for our son :) Overall, we received a LOT of food; as soon our plate was empty, they refilled the table immediately with new supplies. The hotel is situated in a great neighbourhood, you really live with locals here, away from the tourists. The owners are super friendly, they helped us with tips about attractions, restaurants and activities every day. Special thanks for the champagne for my husband's birthday, it was so unattended! The beach is about 10-15 min walk, the center 5 min, so everything is nearby. The free parking on the street was a big plus!
Cons: It would have been nice with a browner bread as alternative but as said before, we had a lot of food for breakfast, so we never left the table hungry.

Pros: very familiar, friendly, helpful

Pros: This was just a perfect place to start our holidays. The service was very good and warm. They booked a transfer for us from the airport to the hotel.

We will remember this place as a very welcoming one and we will surely recommend. Thanks!

7,1 Good
Pros: The size of the villa and bedrooms, the private pool and garden. The staff of the breakfast was very attentive and helpful when we ordered food to our villa
Cons: The lights of the swimming pool were not working and spent the weekend without using it at night. The room service was very poor. Whenever we wanted to order something we had to call the reception, then the restaurant, then the bar, etc... For each simple order we had to speak to 3-4 people at a time as they were very unorganized. There was an incident with my non-portuguese girlfriend and the receptionist. During the check-in they asked for my ID as the reservation was made under my name but they didnt ask for the ID of my girlfriend as we were speaking in Portuguese and they assumed she was Portuguese too. Next day my girlfriend called to order dinner at the hotel restaurant and spoke in English. A minute later the receptionist called and basically accused her of being Portuguese and faking that she was a foreigner. The receptionist demanded my girlfriend to hand in her ID to the staff that would bring our dinner because she was not convinced of her nationality and even threatened of kicking her out of the hotel and reporting her to the manager. After this offensive phone conversation, we went straight away to the reception to speak to the manager. Once the receptionist realized that my girlfriend was greek and not Portuguese, she said that the manager was not there and that she assumed that we should both be Portuguese as Portuguese don’t date foreigners (!!!!!). The whole experience was upsetting and her behavior was rude and offensive. Something that we were not expecting to experience especially in the Algarve that lives of tourism.

7,1 Good
Pros: The villa was spacious and very modern with a lovely little pool and a hot tub. It was very clean with a nice garden and enough wardrobes for everyone. The common pool area is good however the spa is quite small.
Cons: The receptionist was very unfriendly and unhelpful at check in and the staff in general seemed inconvenienced whenever we asked for something ie. a cup of coffee at breakfast. They had not given us enough towels so we had to walk 10 minutes back to reception to get more as no one picked up the phone. When we tried endlessly to call room service on 2 occasions, we could never get through so ended up having to go to reception to order food. Our villa had 3 bedrooms, however the main bedroom was on the 2nd floor and was completely open at the top of the stairs with no door or wall to make it private. Therefore those sleeping in the main bedroom could hear everything going on downstairs in the rest of the villa, and vise versa. The quality of the room service food, which is a very small menu, was very basic and tasteless. They had run out of pizza bases for 2 days and the pasta bolognese and pasta with tomato sauce were very watery and poor quality.

5,4 Okay
Pros: The breakfasts were good, lots of choice. The reception staff were polite. Our villa was in a staggered terrace and some aspects of the design were good. E.g. no noise from neighbouring villas, quiet and private. We had pleasant areas to sit outside with a small patio and an upstairs covered balcony leading off the bedroom. The whole place was kept clean. The gardens were well kept.
Cons: At first glance the villa looked well equipped with Bosch appliances in the kitchen and spacious, freshly decorated rooms which appeared well furnished. However there was a lack of attention to detail and to simple comforts. The mattress cover on our double bed was very uncomfortable to lie on. It was too small for the bed and it did not lie flat. It was thin and backed in plastic so easily became skewed and creased and it felt sweaty. We informed staff in reception of this problem but it was not resolved. Two of our pillows felt lumpy and were the type filled with chunks of foam. During our first couple of days we needed to ask reception twice to get a second mug provided in our kitchen (there were lots of small coffee cups and glasses etc- but only one mug). Although we were pleased with the breakfasts, we only had one evening meal in the hotel’s restaurant - as we found it over priced and poor quality. There were not many other guests when we stayed, so nice and quiet but to the extent that it felt a bit weird and lacking in atmosphere. Many of the villas on the large hotel complex appeared to be empty. We were told it was too early in the season for the bus service to the beach.

Pros: Fantastic property both inside and out. Lovely pool area, clean open rooms. I would highly recommend a “sea view” room. Free parking outside. A full supermarket about 5 mins walk away.
Cons: It was just a little bit a of a walk from the village of Alvor, about 10 minutes if you walk fast. We were a couple, I wouldn’t like to be a family without a car bringing all your bag and baggage (and kids) down to the beach. Also one thing which I thought was really annoying. I spent ages trying to turn on the oven in the room to no avail. I read the booklet back to front in the room and it just gave instructions for the hob (which didn’t work either). My last resort was to ring reception to which I got “Did you pay?” .... very confused I reply “Did I pay for what?” To which I got a snide reply of “You must pay 3euro per day to use the oven”. To be honest it’s not entirely the fact that you have to pay for the oven, (We are in another hotel now for the next part of our stay and the oven works for free!) it was more that no where in any of the literature does it say or was it mentioned at check in that you must pay for the oven. Such a silly thing to leave a bad taste in my mouth after our Lovely stay.

6,7 Good
Pros: Really can't beat the location. Everything you need is in walking distance including a small grocery store, cafes and restaurants. The main strip of Praia do Rocha is about a 10 - 15 minute walk away which contains countless restaurants, bars, gelatoria and clubs along with other amenities. Makes for a fun evening out. Besides the location, the pool is the highlight of the property.
Cons: We stayed here a few years ago and the level of cleanliness has deteriorated. Washrooms, kitchen, floor, bed linens and furniture such as the sofas could be cleaner. It seems not much maintenance has been done to the rooms since our last stay. Walls could use a cleaning or coat of paint. Some of the ceiling corners and curtain rods had layers of cobwebs. The furniture and kitchen are showing their age. Not horrible, but the rooms could use a good cleaning and a sprucing up.
