Just returned from the rocamar after a week staying there, we were in room 513 view from balcony was out on to the road no problem with this as we didn't pay extra for sea view room. I think your better staying on the 5th floor less noise from the road and probably better from the sea view side also with the noise from the pool on the 3rd floor and people walking past at night on the promenade.
I would probably avoid getting a room on the 3rd floor where the pool is unless you want a view of other guests getting tanned out your window. Of course if your the type to be lounging by the pool all day then its probably ideal as you can probably reserve a bed early. As others have said previously you have to be up at daft o'clock to reserve a place on the pool deck. What we tended to do was go the beach first thing then have a dip in the pool after 3pm where there seemed to be a few spare seats. The infinity pool itself was great with stunning views on to the beach.
All rooms have a hairdryer (if you were wondering ladies) a safe where you pay to use about 10 euros for the week, tv has itv/bbc1/e4 also. My only gripe was the issue we had with the air conditioning it started to leak during our first night, we reported it the following morning at reception. It was attended to but the only way to prevent it occurring again was to empty an overflow bottle each night, which became somewhat of an evening ritual.
The resort of albuferia itself is superb all sorts to do to for all ages, the hotel is in a prime location for the old town, not too far to the marina etc. Excursions can be booked via the front desk,pick up is normally via bus stop near statue of monk about 250 yards from hotel. We would definitely considering returning again to the rocamar more so if the air con is sorted :-)
