Re: buying at rocha brava

Hi Gary. As an outright owner on Rocha Brava for 18 years I can thoroughly recommend this development to you and the management team who in our view are excellent.

Re: Is Bella Napoli open?

We are out on Saturday and know that Helder's is open and I can only imagine that Bella Napoli is already in full swing so we will be enjoying many meals at both establishments over the coming days.

Re: Taxi to and from Aldi

If it helps. I have taken taxis from Rocha Brava to both Internarche and Apolonia which have tended to cost 8/10 Euros. Both supermarkets will call a taxi for you once you have finished shopping and we have usually had to wait no longer than 10 minutes. I have heard of people having to wait longer b...

Re: Please don't slam the lid.

Weather.

Reports suggest that Portugal is heading for a massive heatwave. I noticed that the weather station was recording over 31 before 9am this morning which is quite amazing. I thought it was bad enough in the UK at the moment. How are you all coping out there?

Re: Ex Flamingo Restaurant next to Bradys

Yes it is called Gum Tree. I visited it many years ago and I forget what it was called then. The only thing that struck me then was the somewhat dangerous pathway leading to it which was even more precarious coming down after a few drinks. Now some years later and with poor eyesight I wouldn't even ...

Re: My poor cat

So sorry. It is heartbreaking to lose a family pet under any circumstances but that is probably the worst. My thoughts are with you.

Re: Sales Office

My wife and I spent 5 lovely days here just before the storms arrived. A lot of work has been done on the resort over the winter and everywhere is looking immaculate. Will be back in a few months time for a longer stay.

Re: Helders - Rocha Brava

Back again. We spent 5 lovely days at Rocha Brava last weekend and ate most evenings at Helder's. The food as always was excellent and there have been a number of additions to the menu. Looking forward to our next visit.
