Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really amazing in every way! This was by far the best accommodation we had in Portugal. Incredible location, just steps from the beach. Sparkly clean, cozy, lovingly decorated, breathtaking view from the balcony. Our room was lovely, bathrooms were squeaky clean, we could not have asked for more! Our host was amazing. Sofia was always available and her ideas and suggestions were spot on! We had an amazing week at Villa Joaninha and will definitely be back soon! Thank you Sofia! Best host ever!

We stayed at the new appartment in the villa and i'd highly recommend it to everyone looking for a place to stay in this area. Sofia and her husband are really nice, they saved us a lot of money for transfers and they even sent us something straight away that we forgot in the appartment. The appartment itself is really beautiful and also well equiped, especially the kitchen really surprised me as they got way more than just the basic equipment. The location of the appartment is also really good. Our stay there coudn't have been better! To Sofia and her husband, thank you for hosting us and we wish you all the best, Lena & Jacob

Yes! You can book Portuguese cooking lessons at guesthouse Villa Joaninha, too: Sofia and Pedro are not only amazing hosts, she is a fab cook, too! I can therefore advise everybody to book a lesson in Portuguese cooking when staying at Villa Joaninha. (Btw, it runs in the family: their son is a trained cook now working in a 5* restau in Sagres.) The Portuguese cuisine is incredibly rich / diverse / eclectic, hence feel free to voice your preferences when booking your cooking class and enjoy the result... with a good glass of Portuguese wine or two. I want to be back.

We were lucky that during our stay we were the only couple in the whole villa, so we had the villa for ourselves, Sofia was really helpful and understanding and a perfect host, the villa is in a quiet location but only 5 min walk from the beach and main amenities.

If clean and cosy is what you want, then this is where you'll need to be! Great service, cleaning several times a day. Communal kitchen and fridge and great view from the balcony at the living room. The hosts are friendly and do everything to make one feel at ease, both in the villa and in the Algarve. Following their recommendations we have connected with a surfing school. Villa Joaninha is situated in an elegant and quiet part of Praihia da Rocha and is very close to the beach as well as to shops and restaurants. The villa has beautiful authentic details, is comfortable and exceptionally clean. If you book the room for 2 or even 3 they are quite private and big in size. Beds are quite big and very comfortable, even additional one.

If you are going to Praia Da Rocha this hostel is really super. But it feels a little miss placed. I only have good coments about Villa Joaninha. It's clean, Sophia (owner) is super awesome and helpful, they have an amazing view and I sleept really good here. But before going here I wish I did a better reaserch about Praia Da Rocha, which offers you a big beach, big apartments buildings and big hotels. I missed the Portugise atmosphear and the place felt really turistic. If you go here this is the place to stay, and then take a taxiboat to Ferragudo!
