The Algarve Casino is perfect for anyone looking for a "foot in the water" stay in a quiet hotel, two steps away from urban activity and located directly on the large Praia da Rocha beach.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The Algarve Casino is on the Praia da Rocha beach overlooking the city on one side and the Atlantic on the other side. It is 43 miles west of the Faro international airport (1 hour drive) and 1.55 miles away from Portimao. To get there, follow " Portimao" and then "Praia da Rocha." The hotel is on the east beach section.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Out of the 193 rooms, 143 have a sea view ; 50 overlook the city. There are also 16 suites. The rooms have appropriate size (28 m²), in blue and ochre tones, and have a large terrace. They have central air conditioning, direct telephone (old equipment from 1967), full minibar, television ( 12 channels ). The light marble bathroom has a bathtub but is a little sombre (neon lighting). Hairdryer, welcome products and bathrobes are available.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel is a building built on six floors and opened in 1967 - it was renovated in 1998. The large reception - totally in blue azulejos - and the common areas are furnished in baroque Portuguese style or even older (there is an old "pirate" treasure chest) ; with a decoration reminding the 70's (amazing niches with white leather serving as telephone booths) and some more contemporary pieces. The small garden is well maintained (beautiful lawn, palm trees) and has a large bean-shaped swimming pool filled with seawater.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    Breakfasts and dinners are served in the main restaurant "Amendoeiras" which has Portuguese and international cuisine. The room is large enough, bright with golden 70's style and columns on the ceiling. The "Zodiaco" with simple white garden furniture offers breakfasts on the verge of the swimming pool (grilled fresh fish, barbecue and folklore once a week from June). The Casino restaurant, " The Aladino", has the same menu as the "Almendoeiras" for dinner accompanied by a music hall show. Also two bars, including the Panorama, casino piano-bar.

    Beach

    The hotel overlooks the long and wide Praia da Rocha beach. It is separated by an avenue and a promenade. Two steps away from the city, its setting is pleasant, punctuated here and there by rocky needles and ochre cliffs. Nautical bases where you can practice jet ski, dive, wind sail, kayak, pedalo or canoe. Small dark wooden boards, installed in some areas, serve as bars.

      Thanks to its location in the heart of the Praia da Rocha area, the Jupiter will please party-goers and those wanting to be near to everything : restaurants, stores, beach... Nevertheless, should you look for calm and space, this address is not for you.

      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.24
      • Location 10.0

      The unusual five-star boutique Bela Vista hotel, not to be confused with the Real Bellavista in Albufeira, is one of a kind and is the only place worth staying in Portimao and neighbouring Lagos, budget-allowing. A stunning relic of the past that has been brought well into the 21st century, with fantastic views of the main beach, Praia da Rocha, and upmarket facilities like a L'Occitane en Provence spa. The only negative aspect of this hotel is its location; set amidst cheap hotels creeping in closer and closer. However, the Bela Vista is a good base to explore the rest of the region from and also a fantastic and intimate setting for ultimate lounging by the pool. The hotel clientele mainly consists of couples on a romantic break or small groups of friends looking for a bit of sun while relaxing in luxurious surroundings, so not recommended for rowdy children.

      The Tivoli, in an exceptional location between the Arade River and a marina, will please anyone looking for stillness. It will also seduce golfers due to its proximity to several golf courses.

      Made Inn is an unusual trendy little budget hotel where the most has been done to give good results with a small budget. It is located in Portimao town between Lagos and Albufeira about two miles from Praia da Rocha (beach). With its bright orange lettering and small trendy functional concept, it reminded us of easyJet hotels. However, the simple décor in the rooms is more personal than the basic tiny white rooms of the airline's properties. It's a great place to stay for travellers who want to get a feel for the local atmosphere as it isn't in a particularly touristic area although Portimao isn't the most beautiful of the region's towns even if the beach is a bus ride away.
