“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

Just returned home after a ten night stay at the Oriental.
We could not fault this hotel. The breakfast was good, with plenty of choice, the staff were courteous making our stay here enjoyable.
The room was cleaned everyday and clean towels put out as required.
The only thing I cannot comment on was the dinner as we were only B&B but there are plenty of restaurants nearby as the hotel is only two minutes walk from the main bar \ restaurant area.
This made it better at night as you were just out of earshot of the pubs and clubs.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

We have just returned from an 11 night stay at the Hotel Oriental and i have to say it was amazing - food was good lots of things to choose from at breakfast - if you cant find something you like you are very hard to please. The staff were all very helpful and courteous at all times. We stayed in room 26 and the view in the morning was amazing the balcony looked over the gardens and the beach - miss it already. The bed was huge i think it might just about fit in my bedroom at home, it had a small kitchen too with a two hob rings and a fridge which was great for chilling some wine to drink while sitting on the balcony before we went out. The balcony is a good size too and had 2 chairs and a table with two sun loungers as well so was perfect for us to sit and chill. There are lots of bars and restaurants to visit all of which are pretty similar in price although a couple like On The Rocks and The Red Lion had happy hours from 9am to 9pm with large beers 2 euro and a glass of wine for 1 euro - happy days. The view from the bars on the left side of the street is great as if you walk through them from the street they overlook the ocean. The Chinese restaurant which is up above Cheers bar is absolutely amazing we ate there twice :). All in all an excellent holiday and i would definitely go back to the same hotel again it deserves the stars it has.

Just arrived back from Praia da Rocha (09/05/12) , we had a lovely time, even though the weather was not always full sun shine. This is our 3rd visit to Portugal, but our 1st to Praia da Rocha and the Hotel Oriental.We were very happy with both ,the Moroccan style and layout of the hotel was very well set out. The facilities and standards of the hotel are really good and all the staff were very friendly.We had booked bed and breakfast only and both were fine, the room was very spaces and offered and small kitchenette. It was a continental breakfast which was ok , but at times I could of enjoyed a little more variety (being from the UK)..
We did eat all our evening meals out and found great variety and value in Praia da Rocha. I would recommend a visit to a restaurant called "Safari", excellent food (try the lamb Stew).
We intend to make our 4th trip to Portugal very soon

Room Tip: Did not see fitness centre or Spa. All rooms have great rooms views of the great beach from this hot...

Just returned from a week here. The room was spacious with a lovely king sized bed and crisp white linen; also a kitchen area so had a fridge and small electric cooking element to make coffee. Plenty of hot water on tap too for baths/showers. The garden was also lovely and the position was overlooking the beach and sea. There was plenty of choice at breakfast, I don't like greasy stuff so did not miss the 'English' element and was quite happy with what was on offer - cereals; breads; fruits etc. Everything was spotlessly clean; crockery, cutlery, towels etc. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. So 10 out of 10. The only downside? The weather was awful - windy, cloudy, hailstones, rain for most of the week (but cannot hold them responsible for that!)

Room Tip: Stayed in room 024 is at the side of main building, in an extention overlooking the sea.

This hotal is very central, spotlessly clean and very good value.
The rooms are spacious and airy all with a view of the beach which is only steps away. The staff
were very efficient, helpful and friendly. The breakfast included was continental but very substantial, with fruit, breads, meats, dairy eggs and bacon.
The beds were large and the mattresses and pillows very comfortable, possibly the best I've slept in.
I would have no hesitation on reccommeding this hotel to anyone.
