Fifth time here and Hotel is still great, staff are always pleasant and very helpful.The hotel is always clean and spotless, and the rooms are cleaned everyday. food is great and a good selection to suit everyone,location is excellent go out through the back gate and you are 50 meters from the beach, we have booked again for 5 people in October and looking forward to being back in Roc Lago.

My husband and I (both 31 and English) stayed here for 3 nights in the Easter holidays 2012. The staff were generally helpful and attentive, although there was a new guy on reception learning the ropes (hey, we've all been there) who struggled a bit to get his information right. Positives - good location near beach, large rooms, good food including enough for vegetarians, quick commute from Malaga airport (15 mins or so). Negatives - small pool which was unheated and shaded by surrounding buildings so was freezing and unusable despite good temperatures generally, room was a bit sparce and the matresses were nice and firm but the springs stuck into my side. Also we were overlooking the street rather than the pool/sea which was very noisy and the bin men woke us up at 3am on the dot each night! Think it would be fine in the other side of the building and I believe these are the more modern rooms, but you do have to pay more. Parking was secure underground but cost us 11 euros per day. Not a lot of other parking available in area which surprised us out of season, but we did manage to park a couple of roads away for the second and third day. Most of the guests were pensioners from a variety of countries, but facilities for children would be limited. A reasonable stay for a short break for us in a friendly hotel.

My parents are just home from a fabulous 2 week stay in this hotel. They found the staff were extremely friendly and helpful especially Liam and Isobel. The rooms were spotless and the cleaning staff could not do enough to help. They will definetly be back and highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Fourth time at this hotel and still very pleased with the standard. The rooms are super because as well as the bedroom you have a nice lounge attached with settee and coffee table, nice place to sit and read instead of lounging on the bed. The food was good, the service great, many staff having been at hotel for over 20 years. Cleaning level excellent and most nights hotel provided entertainment. Out of the back gate practically on the beach and a lovely walk to Benalmadena Harbour, definitely worth a visit. For the very reasonable price paid, we would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Fourth floor and above overlooking pool have a seaview. Otherside of hotel overlooks road which can...

My wife and myself returned today,19th February after having spent 28 nights at this hotel.
Not up to four star standards but a realistic three. There are certainly lots of plus points with this place. The location is brilliant. 50 metre back from the beach via the gate in the grounds.
Straight into the restaurant/bar/beach area makes it a brilliant place to start your day.

The rooms (junior suites) are a fantastic size. Lots and lots of room with a good size bathroom.Sadly,all furniture very tired.....clean but tired.

The rooms are kept clean by a lovely team of cleaners. You have your own heater/air con unit which gives you individual comfort in the room.

We were on a half board basis and you will certainly never go hungry. Enough choice aimed
mostly at the European guests who are by far in the majority.We were always happy enough
with the meals.

Helpful tip: Take extra plastic hangers for the wardrobe and hanging up washed clothes left in the bathroom. Also take clothes pegs for use on the wall hung drying frame on the rather small balcony.

Now for the negatives which are only a couple.
The bar, apart from the daily happy hour discount is very,very expensive. Luckily you are very close to several bars which have a more balanced approach when it comes to pricing.

In the dining room it is NOT possible to order a FREE jug of water to accompany your evening meal.Neither is coffee or any other liquid.
The only way is to buy a small bottle of water which is expensive for what it is.However,most
people go for this option apart from those on a "wine included" deal.

So, apart from these couple of niggles it is pretty good.

Will we spend a month there again next winter ? Most probably !!

Room Tip: Overlooking the main road will get more sun but could be noisy. We took a 4th floor room overlooking...

We had a 2 week stay in Hotel ROC Lago Rojo, Carihuela, Costa del Sol from 26 Oct to 9 Nov 2011. We were pleasantly surprised as we had read some bad reviews on Tripadvisor and were rather wary. Our experience was very different - we were extremely satisfied with the Hotel. It was well located and easily accessible. The staff and management were attentive, friendly and helpful. We were on full board stay and the food, which was a buffet, was wide and varied, fresh, very delicious and the service was exquisite although the Hotel was busy. The dishes were replenished promptly and there was no attempt to skimp, even towards the end of the mealtimes. Our room which, we understand, was similar to the others, was a split-level room, with a spacious bedroom area and roomy bathroom on the upper level, and a large "sitting room" down a few steps. The room was cleaned daily and the beds made; bed linen was changed every few days. We had never stayed on a full-board basis before, nor had we had such a long stay in any one hotel so had been just a little dubious that we might have been bored with the food. However, we need not have worried as it was a great experience, and hassle free, so we are planning to go back again - this time for three weeks!!! The Hotel had been recommended to us both by friends who had stayed there earlier in 2011 and by Killiney Travel; their assessments proved to be reliable and did not accord with some of the negative experiences of other "Trippers". This is basically a good hotel with good management who are succeeding in providing a good product that pleases a large proportion of their guests - but no hotel can ever satisfy 100% of their guests 100% of the time - and that may not be the fault of the hotel.
