Perfect for a young family

Review by garryw495 Dublin, Ireland

We were delighted with our one bedroom apartment on the 24th floor. We asked in advance for a sea view, and got two balconies with amazing views of Praia da Rocha.

Have a good read of the amenities and look at the pictures. It is a no frills place and the price point makes it fantastic value for money...

The proximity to the beach is the big feature. The shop is right outside and has a small bakery for croissants, coffee. Try the Pasteis de Nata: a little custard tart from the region.

The kitchen was fine for basic cooking. I get the impression they completely clean out the apartments every visit, so don't expect to find salt, pepper, oil etc.

Thanks so much to all the staff for a lovely week and we look forward to seeing you again 😀

Fantastic location.

Review by lynne19532016 Pontypridd, United Kingdom

The apartment we stayed in was on the 23rd floor, what a view! The room was very large and spotlessly clean and comfortable. The reception staff were very helpful from printing off boarding passes, arranging taxis and arranging our room for an extra day. The location is superb, a few minutes walk to the beach and shops and restaurants.

Holiday gem!

Booked this then read reviews and was a bit worried as a few were not very good, I don't know where they stayed because it's a really good apartment block. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and have everything you need for self catering. It has a great pool and lovely gardens...

Location is perfect only 2 minutes from the beach, shops and restaurants. We had a great deal when we booked, well worth the money. I would recommend Jardins da Rocha.

Great spot

Review by anothertripalone Dublin, Ireland

We arrived home today from our two week stay at these apartments and I already want to go back. The apartment we stayed in was huge with beautiful views of the beach from both balconies. The apartment was cleaned most days with towels changed every second day...

Good kitchen with all appliances including a washing machine. We were even able to borrow an iron from reception for the duration of our stay. Pool area is excellent with plenty of sun loungers available. Staff on reception were helpful with calling taxis and any issues we had. Shout out to Gemma for printing a couple of passes for me. Can't wait to return next June and thanks to all the staff for making it a really enjoyable stay. Gary.

Excellent stay

We have stayed in Jardins da Rocha on 3 separate occasions over the past years. Excellent central location, extremely helpful and friendly reception staff, apts are a bit dated but are big and airey with a fully equipped kitchen which is great for preparing food if you don’t want to eat out every night and the washing machine helps for keeping beach clothes/ towels clean. The hotel has a lovely pool area which is surrounded by gardens and is very tranquil...

The building has 24 floors I believe, we stayed on the 7th floor and had lovely views of the sea. Air conditioning is also included which helps to keep cool. The apts also have private parking which is free (and is great as Rocha can get very busy) there is a deposit of 40 euro for the remote to open the parking gate which is returned to you. There is also a supermarket across the road that sells a wide range of items as well as fresh bread/ pastries which are delivered daily. The beach is less than 5 minutes as is the main road of Praia da rocha but it’s far enough away to not be bothered by noise. The lifts can get busy at peak times so we either waited or used the stairs. If you want a comfortable, secure no frills stay then these apartments are great. We were out all day every day so we just wanted a comfortable base to be at night with good facilities which this was. We will continue to stay here when in Rocha as we can’t find any faults with the apts or the services they provide. Can’t wait to return.
