“Very clean hotel, fantastic area!!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Me and my partner fully enjoyed a two week break at the hotel between 20th July and 4th August. I have been to the area lots of times with family but this is the first time my partner had been.
We arrived in the early hours of the morning having been on an evening flight, had to wait a while for the transfers but wasn't too much of a problem, when we arrived at the hotel the man on the desk was lovely and told us everything we needed to know and kept it quick as we were really tired and just wanted to go to bed.
The room was lovely, lots of space and really, really clean (the cleaning staff are absolutely fantastic and really friendly). We were at the back of the hotel with nothing of a view, if we returned we'd probably pay a little more for a sea view so we could really use the balcony.
Having your own table for the evening meal was fantastic, you never had to fight or wait for a table which was brilliant. We had a table on the terrace and I would definitely recommend the terrace as it's a lovely view. The food at breakfast was lovely! We felt that as we had two weeks there the evening meal food was a little repetitive, it also was very much catered to English and we would have preferred a little more cultured food as I didn't particularly want a roast dinner in the hot Spanish sun. One thing I will say about the evening meal is the ridiculous dress code, come on how old fashioned is that! Women could get away with wearing anything but men's dress code was very strict, who wants to wear smart trousers in 30 degrees of heat, smart shorts would definitely be enough. The waiters and waitresses were all fantastic and very accommodating!
We didn't see much of the entertainment but what we did it looked really good. We tended to go out to the local bars or get a taxi into Cala D'or, which is only 6 euros! We ate out a few times, I would definitely recommend eating at the marina it's a fantastic atmosphere and not expensive either. One bar in Cala Egos I would definitely recommend is Bambu Bar on the corner, it's fantastic in there and the drinks are large and not expensive.
The pool area is very small and I felt that the sunbeds we're that packed in that you felt like you were virtually lay on top of each other. We paid for the sunbeds over the road at the tenis club a couple of days and that was brilliant, much comfier, much more relaxed and away from the somewhat irritating daytime entertainment, although most people seemed to enjoy it.
Overall, I would definitely recommend it to anyone, maybe more for a week or 10 days but as we were there for 2 weeks we hired a car and saw lots of the island which was brilliant. The area is amazing so would definitely say go. I'm not sure me and my partner will return to this particular hotel but we will definitely be returning to the area!!

Just returned from 2 fabulous weeks of holiday. This family run hotel was everything and more than we expected. The staff make sure you enjoy your stay, from the friendly receptionists to the very hard working catering staff. My wife and I like to eat out when on holiday, but the quality and choice of food on offer at the Rocamarina made it very difficult to do so. The Thomson reps were always on hand and made sure you were fully aware of everything that was going on and available. The entertainment was to say the least very entertaining. All in all The perfect holiday so much so that the first thing we did on our return was book up for next year, something we have never done before.

Room Tip: We enjoyed high floor (there's only 2) quiet room. You can pay a little extra to get a room faci...

Our first visit to this hotel. First impression lovely welcome at reception considering we arrived late from a delay, Very friendly. Room as expected, very clean, light, large balcony, we backed onto the road but wasn't noisy at all, amazingly quiet, view was restricted due to a large pine tree but was ok watched the birds which kept us amused :). Bed needs a different mattress rock hard, as I suffer with back issues was a challenge. Hotel overall spotlessly clean and lovely friendly staff throughout, a few waiters seemed to struggle with smiles but must be hard work in the heat long trousers and shirts. Restaurant was very well organised liked having the same table, all staff so helpful especially Stella and Zineb and the maître D was very friendly too. Food varied and very tasty, loved the deserts very well catered for English. Pool area this needs to be sorted out a disaster. A rope is moved at 9.00am with a charge of regulars running for their sun beds to the extent a lady broke her ankle! There are far too many leaving towels on their sun beds and leaving them for hours, the hotel needs to address this, at some hotels we stayed at they stated no one to leave towels unless on the bed they had two security/ reception team members monitor towels and removed them if no one on the beds tough but has to be done to stop greedy people. We went to the Tennis club to sunbathe lovely peaceful and comfortable sun beds, yes you have to pay but we thought it was worth it. The hotel have the same sun beds but no mattresses around the pool very uncomfortable. The beach is down from tennis club five minutes from hotel if that, lovely cove, it does get busy but the fruit man selling pineapple and melon is so funny worth seeing well you will hear him. The little town is five minutes walk many restaurants and a few shops. Go to Lomer bar and restaurant excellent prices for food and drink, the Polynesia cocktail bar is double the price looks fancy but weak drinks Lomer ( Laurence owners name) great drinks. Marina is 35 minutes maybe bit less to walk to but worth it lovely. We booked a couple of trips with Thomson reps, SonAmor show FANTASTIC worth every euro! Palma shopping good, Orange Blossom trail FANTASTIC a must. Although I have to say Shaun and Emily need to learn the trips and what's involved so dipsy Shaun didn't have a clue about Palma where El corte was for free Tapas lunch and coach was to pick us up for show from town street but market was on Emily didn't have a clue where we were to be picked up, go to roundabout, if bus comes to hotel we will send it there for you!!! The rep on the Palma trip (not Thomson was so bad rude and said not to go to free tapas and weak wine and horrible food NOT what you want to hear) . OK enough said all in all would we return YES we would we had a fab holiday so even though the little downs above we loved the place don't be out off they a minor

Cannot fault this hotel on cleanliness and the service is second to none. My only concern is that it has a rather small pool area and if you didn't want to be part of the morning 9 O'clock rush for a sun bed around the pool, which we didn't, you could find it rather difficult to get a space. Also the beach, which is a short walk away from the hotel, is a little tiny and rather crowded. This aside, we did have an enjoyable 10 day break and I would recommend it.

Just returned from a very hot week.

1 hour transfer from airport, swift check in and spotless, spacious room.

Food was good with lots of choice - no problem getting a sunbed if you went down reasonably early.

Husband joined in many of the activities and had a great time with lots of like-minded people. I was happy with my books and a bit of aqua gym.

All staff work very hard to ensure everyone has a good time.

Just what we were looking for - Thank you

just returned from a two week stay and have to say this is the cleanest hotel we have ever stopped in. Rooms cleaned every day, and a special thankyou to maria who works very hard. Food especially breakfasts really good. The reps were fantastic thanks emily for takeing the time to explain everything about our trip north, and for telling the management straitaway when the outside shower was off. Shaun we wanted to take you home with us. Candice might see yer in shields over winter. A job really well done and thanks for making our holiday.

Room Tip: trip north to pollenca
