  • Unfortunately for me the bad weather decided to come in the days I got to spend a few days with family in praia das rocas. Reserve a room in banglows, simple twin room with tv, refrigerator, bathroom with shower but with water tank and WiFi. Modest room but resolves to spend a few days. Was clean and arajeado qd demos input, I love one of the details they had a baby and cot with bedding for baby girl. This is a gesture that caught my attention. On the beach we can only enjoy the first day we had some sunshine but it was cold so I was in and out and enjoy a little waves. We other days was rain, wind and cold that is not enjoyed anything. I can't evaluate a big deal cuz I couldn't enjoy the attractions you have available.

  • The Praia das Rocas is a good place to spend quality time with family and enjoy real waves quite far from the Sea (created by a system of 10 hydraulic pumps, which allow for periods of about 10 to 15 minutes of waves several times a day). I think however that there is too much red tape to access the facilities/activities, in addition to everything you pay. € 70 per night in a bungalow with no meal included, but includes 2 tickets to the beach, 1 for each adult, which otherwise would have to pay 7 € each. On entering the strictu sensu Beach, put a bracelet (a genus of green card) If you want to practice any activity (canoeing, seesaw, slide, climbing, ...) you have to pay extra 5 € per person and get another bracelet, but if you want to ride in the paddle, you must make another extra payment and maybe more a bracelet (when you come on vacation you're all marked on the wrist). The shadows (palhotas, toldes) also pay, as well as the espeguiçaderas and mattresses. I'm not against payment of these "extras", but the prices are too expensive in my opinion. As for the people who work on the premises, no negative point, talent, helpful, friendly and attentive. In the vicinity there is little restoration for meals, I recommend the restaurant "Gil" in another restaurant served us piglet to the Bairrada cold, so we left a bit disappointed. There is also a grocery store where you can purchase essential goods for the day to day. The sympathy of the population is contagious! Thanks to the local fire brigade Corporation, for your courtesy! In summary, a few days of fun with family and friends, but with the budget a bit exceeded.

  • Very nice location for those who like waves but don't like sand. The wave pool is the business card, but in addition has a wide variety of activities that you can do from canoeing, slide, climbing ... Etc. obviously everything has a cost, and when will we see, with input, two or three activities, meal, arrives around 15 € per person. In the bar/restaurant has the option of the dish of the day for 6 € or so menus with sandwiches that are between 4 and 6 €.

  • Great day at the lido with the family. Around 20€ for a family of 4 with teens. Weekends would possibly be packed, but about the right number on a Tuesday in August. One pool is shallow and perfect for kids or throwing a ball about and it's linked to the deeper pool with the wave machine. This comes on about every 45 mins for around 15 mins. Don't expect 'typhoon lagoon' Florida type waves. It's more Atlantic rollers, but great fun all the same. Everyone piles in the water to this before returning for a sizzle in the sun. Get there early for a palm parasol. You can also hire cushions but the concrete isn't too uncomfortable with a towel. You can take nothing more than a drink or ice cream pool side, but can sit in and eat burger, hot dogs, chips etc in the cafe. Good idea, as no flies poolside! 1PM seems be the busy time in the cafe though. Hope this helps :-)
  • Absolutely wonderful!
  • Excelente dia, os putos adoraram! Recomendo vivamente!
  • Excelente! Uma praia no interior do país
  • Bom local para passar um dia nas férias. As regras relativas à entrada das geleiras é um pouco confusa e com um pequeno défice de lógica. Piscinas grandes e com grande vigilância. Piscina de ondas é a grande atração da praia das rodas e definitivamente a melhor
