Read more about this Hotel


The Rocha Brava Apartments are located just 3km east of Carvoeiro, a charming fishing village right in the heart of the Algarve. The resort itself is situated on the cliff top and surrounded by 11 hectares of beautiful landscaped gardens. The protection of the environment is of utmost concern and besides the countless variety of trees and flowers, artificial lakes have been created and many of the existing species of flora, such as almond trees and fig trees have been maintained. It is an ideal setting for lovers of nature and tranquillity.

## Please note that One Bedroom Apartments with a Garden View are all situated on the first/top floor, therefore stairs are required to leave or access the apartment. ##

There is also a pool bar serving everything from cocktails to snacks and a coffee shop and additional bar in the lobby. Please note that drinks are not included in the Half Board service.

There are plenty of activities on offer at the resort. Choose from three outdoor swimming pools (one of which is covered and heated during the winter), separate children’s pool, tennis club with four courts and a resident coach available for individual or group lessons or the games room with table tennis and snooker (open November to March). Keep the children occupied in the kids club which, for your convenience is complimentary, and offers entertainment for children aged 4-12 during the summer months of May - October (5 days a week). For added relaxation try the excellent beauty shop where fully qualified therapists can provide treatments from body massage to aromatherapy and reflexology.
