The elegant Rocamar Hotel offers contemporary style and eagle-eye views of the Albufeiran coastline.
The views from this clifftop hotel take in the Atlantic Ocean and Albufeira’s tumble of white buildings. Some steps just outside the hotel lead down the craggy cliff-face to the beach, or there’s a lift just a minute’s walk away.
The interiors have a striking monochrome palette, with cherry red sofas and neon orange corridors providing a splash of colour. Bedrooms are just as stylish, and you can upgrade to a superior room for extras like a Nespresso™ machine.
This review is about the restaurant - Don't Bother eating there!
We went to the area looking for the Iguana Cafe, but it was Monday and was closed. So we strolled along and decided to sit for supper at the Rocamar. What a mistake! We ordered two pizzas and a pitcher of Sangria. The pizzas were like a 3mm thick cardboard with some tomato and cheese, any supermarket frozen pizza is better than this. After a week in Lisbon and Algarve I can say with certainty that the Sangria we ordered was the worse I ever had in any country, it tasted like watered down murky juice with no fruit and practically no wine content. I would honestly just stay away from this place.More

Perfect for the old town
I stayed here with my partner and it was Just perfect. We upgraded for the superior sea view room which I highly recommend! The location was key for us as we enjoy eating out at he old town in the evenings. Just a few minutes walk away from the square. It's also about a 10/15 minute walk to the marina. The room itself was a good size, modern and clean. The infinity pool was lovely but there isn't many sun loungers. However, the beach is just in front of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

superb hotel in a great location
The Rocamar is a very modern very clean hotel. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the room cleaning and towel changing happen every day.The staff are truly amazing and make your holiday. Don't know the names of them all but the gentleman on reception when we arrived was delightful and so welcoming and was the same every time we saw him through out the week Gheorghe especially in the restaurant was wonderful and entertained everyone throught the day with his chatter. I have to say the staff mst be hand picked they are amazing. The food was superb with lots to choose from. Located in a great spot overlooking the beach. Albefeura is beautifaul breathtaking even the portugues are so friendly. Will definitely be returning here and will strongly recommend this hotelMore

Convenient Location with cruise-ship atmosphere!
Gorgeous views from the pool, A+ for location, as long as one does not spend any time in the room. Once inside the hallways remind you of cruise-ship narrow and winding halls with a Playtex glass with shadow image of people with kids (bit scary, it feels like shadow is following you). The feeling continues in room with the size and fixtures.The staff are cold at beginning as if you are interrupting their work, but eventually they smile. The greatest attribute is location, five min walk to center yet far enough from crowds. Breakfast is cold and limited.More
Just returned from this hotel. The view from the 5th. floor was amazing. Nice quiet area.Spent 10 nights. Room was well appointed, spotless and plenty of wardrobe space. Towels were changed daily and sheets every 3 days. An advantage was the multi-channel TV, air conditioning and mini fridge. Breakfast offered a good choice and despite other reviews stating seating was minimal, we had no problem getting seats both inside or outside. Staff were friendly but not in your face.The only downside was the lack of sunbeds at the poor area. I would recommend a stay in this hotel, lovely area in the old town.More
