We went to Portugal in November for the first time. We nabbed a last minute deal to the Club Praia de Rocha in the Algarve and thoroughly enjoyed it. Because it was so cheap, just £231 for a week, we weren’t sure what to expect.
The room had a balcony with a sea view. It was basic but spacious and was cleaned every day except Sunday. We were surprised to find that we had 2 single beds where we had expected a double, but it didn’t bother us enough to complain. We just pushed them together! The pool was nice but a bit chilly. The indoor pool came in handy! They charged for sun bed hire each day too, though it did stop people fighting over them ridiculously early in the morning.
The weather was better than I thought it would be but it became cold on an evening so make sure you take a jacket. The beach was lovely – very clean with plenty of restaurants and bars along the sea front, from Indian, Chinese and Italian to Irish and English bars. All in all we had a really good time and we were very pleasantly surprised at the standard we got for our money. If you have the opportunity to book a cheap holiday here, do it!!!
