Stayed hear for a week on 7April with my husband and our daughter .what a beautiful hotel it is so relaxing. rooms are nice and clean we had a nice side sea view on second floor you could hear the waves of the sea while lying in bed also loved hearing the clock chiming every hour very nice.breakfast was ok food could have been slightly warmer the only downfall of the hotel is the pool area not enough sun beds for the amount of people.the whole of the hotel is stunning too .the maids were happy at there jobs always saying hello and very pleasant. They did a good job of the room cleaned towels every day. some of the bar staff were helpful .the hotel is a good location not far from the square I have been to albuferia a lot times and stayed in a lot hotels I will be staying here in the future .also as you come out of the hotel on the front turn left there is a new tapas bar open facing tunes bar clalled Sal Rosa it as a lovely seating area at the back were you could have nice jug of sangria while looking out to the sea go in you will love it staff are lovely . I could go on forever love albuferia cannot wait to go back.

I had the pleasure of visiting this hotel and yes it is well located, views to die for a pool a little bigger than a bath and the rooms are very similar to what I would call a premier inn in the UK. The experience went bad when I made a mistake coming back from a night out at 5am in the morning!! The concierge talked to me in a way which was tactless and rude. Even though I was in the wrong and admitted as much later both verbally and via email to the director. I think clients need to be respected and valued but clearly not at the Rocamar Hotel Albufeira Portugal. I later on went to chat with the same concierge as I was unhappy and uncomfortable with the events of the earlier encounter but he then became aggressive and raised his voice which was unbelievable in itself. After asking for his name and his directors details I emailed his boss with a minute of the events of both encounters. I did so in Portuguese to make sure they understood what I tried to convey to them. To my great surprise the director saw no issues in talking to clients with disregards for the manner in which they handle a situation and the fact that the employee raised his voice was not an issue and he applauded his employee for enforcing a rule. He went as far as SAYING HE WAS NOT WORRIED ABOUT MY BUSINESS NOR MONEY effectively saying I could do one. My question to him is what if all his clients took their business elsewhere he would pay his wages how? Still it is a well known fact Portugal is in no financial trouble and jobs are easy to come by there (sarcasm). All in all I am shocked and would recommend anyone with self respect to stay well away. As my business is in customer service I am speachless in the level this case reached. I would if I was the owner of the business send them to the states and let them experience what service means .....

we stayed for a week and had a very comfortable stay at the hotel the rooms are basic but adequate,, the rooms were well maintained with fresh towels each day and the domestic staff were very polite and thorough. we had a room to the back on the road side of things I thought it might be noisy but double glazing is a wonderful thing we heard little traffic noise or any other noise for that matter.the comments related to the bar staff I can relate to most were good and competent but one was decidedly unhappy and he was difficult to get a smile out of on most occasions but he did his job and kept us supplied in drink when asked.at the end of the day it was a great stay and would return another time..
