Hotel Clube Dos Arcos
The Praia da Rocha area is a cosmopolitan centre for tourists located on a beautiful sandy and shingled beach in the Portuguese Algarve.
The Algarve runs along the southern coast of the country which means it is blessed with a Mediterranean climate, with warm seas and stunning landscape. The area is incredibly popular with tourists from all over the globe, returning time and again to enjoy the rustic villages of the Algarve, delectable traditional cuisine, beautiful sea and lagoons and a wide range of activities on offer. Perhaps most importantly for many tourists, the Algarve has over 300 days of sunshine a year!
The Clube Dos Arcos is a modern hotel complex located close to Praia da Rocha. Only 150m from the beach, the hotel offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea together with the beautiful sand and shingle beach areas. As you are so close to the beach, you can enjoy the sun, sea and sand every day of your holiday and even try a range of activities such as swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling.
However, if you want to do more than enjoy the relaxing seaside lifestyle of this Algarve resort, then the centre of Praia da Rocha, with its bars, restaurants and clubs, is also within walking distance from the Clube Dos Arcos and has a lot to offer the whole family. In the town there are numerous shops, street vendors, craft stalls, parks and even a water park to enjoy. Nearby Portimao and its brand new marina are also close by and in the quaint village of Alvor there are great opportunities to sample more of the local Algarve culture. Alvor in particular really showcases the local fishing industry, so you should make the most of the just-caught flavours of the local seafood in its highly authentic Algarve restaurants.
The Clube Dos Arcos complex is well equipped and modern with all of the convenience and facilities expected of an international tourist resort. The apartments come in various sizes depending on your particular requirements, but all of them have their own private bathrooms with shower facilities. Rooms also come with hair-dryers, satellite and cable TV, an in-room safe for your valuables and a balcony or terrace so you can make the most of those stunning views of this area of the Algarve. For disabled and handicapped guests, there are also appropriate rooms and facilities on offer.
The main complex centre has an excellent restaurant and a lively bar, both of which serve international and locally-inspired cuisine. There is also a small supermarket stocked with holiday necessities, both an indoor and outdoor pool, sun loungers and parasols available and car parking spaces for those with hire cars. You will also find a twenty-four hour reception service and for those wanting a touch of luxury, there are massage rooms, a steam room, fitness and gym facilities.
Things To Do Nearby
In this region of Portugal there are many and varied things to enjoy, ranging from the more active scuba diving, water-skiing or snorkelling to relaxing pastimes such as trying the local cuisine, driving around the winding country lanes or taking in the Portuguese architecture. A hugely popular activity is that of taking a boat trip along the shore to explore the coastline and its wildlife as you can see the lagoons and admire the scenery from the cooling, calm sea.
Another great day out is an excursion to the region’s capital, Faro, to see some local museums or enjoy some Portuguese shopping! Faro boasts a beautiful old port area which contrasts with its modern marina. In the old town you can have fun losing yourself in a maze of winding alleys. If you are looking for a holiday with a bit of night life, both Faro and Praia da Rocha are destinations with a lot to offer.
What Have Previous Guests Said?
Unless you want a beach holiday only, previous guests have recommended that you hire a car to ensure you really make the most of your time in Portugal. The Algarve is a beautiful region with lots of hidden gems in the form of small villages, tucked away restaurants and stunning landscapes, many of which are best or indeed only accessible by car. However, many guests have chosen to enjoy just the beach and the top quality facilities on offer – and of course the gorgeous weather. The Clube Dos Arcos is also regarded as an ideal location for families, couples or groups of friends as there are so many things to do both in the complex and nearby.
