Simply superb, from day 1 we were welcomed and they made everything easy. Great staff all round the village from reception to the cleaner and maintenance team. Very well kept and great restaurants and coffee shop. The only problem was sunbed around the pool, it was very busy and it could do with a seating area apart from the pool bar.

Rocha Brava Village Resort is a lovely family resort. We booked to stay in a 'superior villa' which would be ready at 2pm. We could not get into our accommodation until 3.30pm which wasn't great as we arrived about 12 noon. The last thing we wanted to do was search through five cases to find swimwear, towels and sun cream to use the pool before accommodation was ready. Our accommodation was very nice and extremely clean, however these 'superior villas' are not villas they are 2 storey apartments. I had requested a 3 bed villa and these apartments are only 2 bedrooms. We then asked for the z bed to be put in the twin bedroom and was told it was in there already. On arrival to our 'apartment' the z bed was outside the front door. So after a long journey and waiting around for 3 hours we then had to drag the z bed upstairs.

The pool area is really nice and most days we managed to use sunbeds, the pool bar serves nice food and drink and the staff are very helpful and cheerful. The reception staff however are not the best. Quite sullen and unhelpful, luckily we only had to encounter them a couple of times. I wouldn't recommend using the green bus service as we had to wait at the airport for an hour before the driver turned up. Although there a few niggles we did have a great holiday but feel it is important for people to know that if they are expecting a villa they will not get one. We have stayed in villas for a number of years so this was a let down.

Lovely clean resort. My top tip if self catering would be to get a taxi from reception on arrival day to the local Aldi (about 10 Euros each way) and stock up as apart from the water the local supermarket has sky high prices for most goods.

We had a lovely holiday at this resort. We were staying for a month and were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment, the apartment was so spacious and very well equipped with washing machine and fridge freezer. We bought logs and had a lovely open fire. The apartments are about 5 minutes by car from Carvoeiro where there are plenty of shops and restaurants and bars. We hired a car which was necessary to get our food shopping. The shops in the complex were very expensive. Helders bar on the complex was very good for a drink and we had a lovely meal there too.

It was very quiet when we stayed but we were looking for a relaxing holiday anyway. The cliff top walk is good and the sunsets breathtaking. The gardens are well maintained and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

We had booked a 1 bedroom apartment with sea views but were given a 2 bedroom villa with beautiful views of the sea and cliffs, it was fantastic, very clean and very well equipped. Staff were pleasant and helpful and I would recommend this resort to anyone wanting a relaxing break in the sun.

This was our second year at Rocha Brava, staying in a two bedroom superior apartments with a sea view. Like last year it was clean and well equipped. The kitchen had what looked like new fridge/freezer, dishwasher and cooker. With three children we used the fold down bed for our youngest (6) and that was fine. The rooms were cleaned pretty much every day. There is the larger central pool which was very busy, but we tended to use one of the smaller pools. The resort overall itself was reasonably quiet, which is why we went back. The staff were very friendly and really helpful.

The whole complex is clean, beautifully landscaped, with lots of space between each row of apartments. There are plenty of useful amenities on site, with a well stocked shop selling freshly baked bread, a good selection of fresh fruit and for those less adventurous souls some English branded goods. Next to the shop is a spa/treatment business which seemed a little pricey and hence we didn't use. Then there is the wonderful cafe which offers a wide and tasty selection of food and drink and shows live English Premier League games. The main restaurant is the 'O Farel' and although convenient the food is only average and over-priced. In addition, just outside the main entrance, there are two further restaurants which are friendly and reasonably priced. There are three swimming pool areas with the main one having plenty for the kids to do and is well serviced by numerous sun beds. You can usually still get a good choice of the beds up until around 9:30 am which was a pleasant surprise. There is usually a member of staff monitoring the beds and he will neatly fold up towels on 'reserved' beds if bodies don't appear on them within a reasonable time limit. The two other pools are smaller with one in amongst the accommodation/garden area and the other having a beautiful view of the sea. The facilities are completed with four all-weather tennis courts with racquet and ball hire available and a gym where there are also different fitness activities. The staff are all very friendly and helpful with reception arranging taxis upon request. There is also a very useful free mini-bus shuttle service which runs three times daily into nearby Carvoeiro from the reception area. The accommodation we had was spacious, well stocked with utensils, had plentiful storage space, but needed a little modernising in the kitchen area. Particularly the cooker which we needed an electrician out twice to fix. From speaking to other guests the accommodation is a little hit and miss with most of the apartments being privately owned. It might be worth the site owners setting a higher minimum standard for the apartment owners to bring them all in line. The only reason Rocha Brava doesn't achieve five stars is because of the niggles about the apartment and the 'O Farel' restaurant. Although these seem a little 'picky' they do detract from what is essentially a beautiful complex which we would recommend to anyone.

We stayed in one of unfurnished and owned apartments, even though it was dated we had a good time and it suited our family. The pools were good although the main pool could be a little shallower for kids. The main restaurant on site seemed a little dated in style but didn't eat there favouring exploring the area and searching for restaurants. The cleanliness was very good and the gardens were very nice. As a location it is a great base to explore from as we preferred the quiet rather than the overdeveloped area of Albufeira. In all a good family location and base to explore the Algarve.

The complex was well maintained, very clean and tidy. We were pleased with our apartment which was quite spacious for 2 adults and a toddler. It had everything we needed for our stay (except a hair dryer).

The resort was perfect for our 2 yr old. There were 3 pools to choose from and he swam everyday - this was better than the beach as the sea was quite cold and a bit more rough for him. We opted for B and B option, the breakfast was lovely. Good choice, fresh and replenished quickly. The cafe, supermarket, restaurants etc in the area provided everything we needed.
