Praia da Rocha, Portimão, Algarve



Five minutes’ drive from Portimão, Praia da Rocha has one of the Algarve’s best beaches, backed by ochre-red cliffs and the small 16th-century Fortaleza da Santa Catarina.

Behind the beach looms the town; this has long known the hand of development, with high-rise condos and luxury hotels sprouting along the cliffside, and a row of restaurants, bars and clubs packed along the main thoroughfare.

If you look hard beyond the concrete facade, Praia da Rocha has several vestiges of an elegant past, including some 19th-century mansions, which are now atmospheric guest houses.

There’s also the sleek Marina de Portimão, painted autumnal colours (to match the cliffs), and a well-known casino where you can fritter away your holiday money.

COVID-19 Supplementary Information for Guests

Our Bluesea apartments team is excited that you are joining us and we hope to make you feel as safe as possible while you are with us.

Please read our COVID-19 Supplementary Information for Guests. This is for the safety of everyone: you and your family, but also the health and safety of our staff and their families, as well as of other guests.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Cleaning and disinfection
  • To ensure proper cleaning and disinfection, we are no longer accepting early check ins or late check outs. This means that all check outs must be completed by 11:00 am and that check ins cannot be done before the 16:00 pm.
  • After check out, all windows are opened to allow air to circulate in all rooms.
  • All surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected with bleach or alcohol-based cleaning products, and heavy-use areas will be thoroughly disinfected: kitchen countertops, bathrooms, door handles, light switches, keys, remote controls, etc.
  • All our beds and bed pillows have impermeable covers that are changed for every new reservation.
  • All our sheets and towels are washed at high temperatures.
  • Curtains, sofas and other tissue surface items are disinfected with disinfectant spray.
Preparing your trip
  • As always, we recommend that guests purchase travel insurance so that they are fully covered in the event of cancellation and trip interruption.
  • Bring masks for yourself and all other guests. It is mandatory for check in. All public places in Portugal require that you wear masks indoors.
  • If any of the guests do not have a mask for check in you will need to purchase it from us. Price is 2€/mask.
  • Because of the need to report any possible cases of Covid-19 to the health authorities, it is crucial that you or someone in your party have a mobile phone that works in Portugal. If you or someone in your party becomes ill, we have a protocol in place to isolate the suspected case and help you as much as we can.
Upon check-in
  • We will keep operating on a personal check-in basis, but with the necessary measures.
  • Please let us know your arrival time ate least 24 in the day before arrival and let us know if you need to change it for any reason
  • No handshake or contact compliment is allowed.
  • The guest registration, shall be performed online previously, with the filling of the form you receive some days before arrival. Unfortunately, we do not have any other way of receiving the city tax, so it should be paid in cash. Please try to have the exact amount to avoid changes.
  • The house book with rules and instructions about the house is available online. You can find the link inside the house. Please take some time to read it and contact us if you have any questions.
Inside our properties
  • All apartments have alcohol gel in the entrance of the house and soap dispensers in every bathroom. Please wash your hands well immediately upon entering the apartment.
  • We have removed most of the rugs, decorative pillows and other decorative items. We realize these items make the apartments ‘homier’, but they are also potential problem spots for infection and are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • The apartments have been cleaned and disinfected according to the recommendations of Portugal Tourism Government and Government Health Department before your arrival. During your stay, please also take care to keep you and your family safe. Each apartment contains cleaning items which you can use to periodically clean heavy-use spots such as door handles and light switches.
  • If there is any problem with the apartment that requires assistance either from a member of our staff, they will only enter with your permission, and everyone who is in the same room should wear a mask. In entering any apartment that is currently occupied, staff will always be wearing a mask.
  • Consider keeping at least one window open in each room so that the air can circulate. To keep the apartment cool in the summer heat, lower the blinds about halfway.
  • When on the property, do not linger in common areas longer than necessary. Please maintain social distancing: keep any visitors to your apartment to an absolute minimum and that you do not visit other guests or have them visiting your apartment.
  • Consider leaving all shoes at the door.

    • In one bag: add all used bedding. Tie the bag and ensure it is properly closed. Please leave duvets and quilts folded on the bed to avoid mixing with the bedding and make it easier for our removal
