Really good hotel and the room and facilities (other than the pool area) were brilliant. The location of the hotel is central and absolutely superb for exploring Praia da Roche. We had room overlooking the street and beach and had no noise issues when the doors were closed for the night even though we had a balcony at low level facing the sea front - with a lot of passing pedestrian and car traffic- so I don't understand any complaints about noise.
Only reason I would say it was very good and not excellent was the pool area was too small for that size hotel and really could do with a drink service (although to be honest if the pool was full we just went to the beach which is superb). Lastly the cost of the Spa and parking was laughable. Couldn't park a hired scooter for the night without paying 20 euros! I left it on the street.

Room Tip: Premium room and sea view was worth the extra money.

Have to agree with a lot of the positives and negatives (not many though - food but to be honest nothing really to moan about) of previous reviews.
Location -
The hotel has definitely one of the best ones of this resort (custom built resort with rather a crammed layout). Right above the steps (if you have mobility issues this could be an issue) that take you down to a wonderful beach (sun beds were never a problem but what we didn't realise is that you can book your favourite bed/spot for the duration of the holiday and even if the bed is free it doesn't always mean you can use that day, due to someone else already paying for it!). As someone else previously commented it's good because the hotel is at the end of the busy more or less pedestrian strip (which is choc-o-bloc in the evening). There are plenty of shops on the doorstep and a taxi rank outside.
Hotel -
The room (707) was lovely, clean and spacious. Very comfortable 2 large single beds, good quality bedding and decent pillows, I am fussy about my bed but this was comfortable. Small seating area with TV and another TV facing the bed. Great room to relax in. We had asked for a high room and side view - great view over to the Jupiter (so if you wanted to listen to the music from the balcony it was ideal) (once patio doors closed sound wasn't to much of an issue but I would definitely ask for a high room). The view to the left was looking down the beach and strip (room 706 would have given an even better view). I wouldn't want a room overlooking the pool as it seemed a bit dark with no view apart from the pool. Obviously a sea view would have been the best.
Pool -
Small pool but managed to get a sunbed most days for the short time I wanted to use it.
Restaurant/food-
Have to agree with previous comments on this - it was ok but nothing great and there's plenty of restaurants on the doorstep for a lot cheaper.
Claire's, out and to the left, live music playing was exceedingly great value and attentive service (to the point you felt that they were just about giving away the food). We had a lovely meal there so would recommend.
We only had one bad meal, which was expensive and pretty awful (opposite end of strip and served chicken piri piri - maybe just bad choice of food from the menu).
Vegetarian choice not particularly inspiring - basic salads, pasta or pizza.
A good Indian which was inside a shopping complex along to the right. Loads of Italians.
People tend to eat very late in the evening.
Resort -
A relatively new resort which just seems to be a pile of hotels dropped into it, not particualrilt pretty apart from the marina area and sea front (definitely get seafront accommodation and along towards marina area). Very much a family resort, one disco and Club Blanco. Had a pleasant feel about it and very busy. We got a private taxi from airport and back which took under an hour.
Staff -
All lovely and helpful.
Wi-fi -
Great coverage and speed.
Pool/beach towels available from reception (20 euros deposit each to hire).
Gym was ok.
Would I go back again? Yes!

Room Tip: High room, seaview or 706/707

Just back from a 10 night stay. Superb hotel. Staff really friendly, language no issue. Recognise some of the comments about noise from returning ' night owls' - note the young crowd - but we were 8th floor and with windows closed (air con a must) no problem. Amazing breakfast, varied with plenty of fresh produce and, if you are English breakfast obsessed, a recognisable sausage. I tried on my last day, only as I prefer the lighter options, and I can certainly recommend. Hotel room large and cleanliness across the whole hotel 'spot on'. Don't be 'put off' by any negatives about the pool. We were expecting limited use but my two kids had an amazing time in there, both morning and afternoon. True it doesn't always have the sun, but you can 'catch it' in the morning, and although limited in the afternoon it is still warm. I guess though that might be an issue earlier in the year. Evening buffet good; again plenty of varied options, great salad, and we were also able to switch the evening meal for a lunch time. Drinks also reasonably priced, 4€ for a large beer and 3€ for a generous wine. Amazing views of the sandy beach; the 'strip' to the left is somewhat 'cluby' with not the best designed architecture in the world, but the marina is very pleasant and a short ferry taxi across the water to Ferragudo will take you to a Portugal of narrow streets.

Room Tip: Higher floor sea view
