This hotel is close to the beach, and it comes with a lounge bar that hosts comedians, live singers and tribute acts.
It’s a minute’s walk to the sandy cove at Cal d’es Pou and Cala Egos, a little place dotted with shops and restaurants. And there’s a marina complete with cafés and bars just 5 minutes’ walk away.
Dining is covered by 2 restaurants – one here, one at the hotel-owned sports complex over the road. There’s also a lounge bar which fills up each night for live shows. You get a choice of 2 pools, too.
We returned recently after a lovely holiday at the Rocamarina Hotel. This was our first time here and we are sure to visit again in the future.
It is a very clean and modern Hotel with good spacious rooms, some with sea views.
There were plenty of sunbeds available around the pool and in the garden. A few people gathered around for the 9am rush to the beds, but it wasn't a problem.
We had great fun joining in the games beside or in the pool and I did Aquafit each morning. It is a great way to mingle with other guests. It seemed to be the more or less the same people who joined in the games each day.
The Food was excellent and there was plenty of choice. A different curry was available every night which suited us perfectly. Also there was fresh fish and meat cooked to your taste when you wanted it. You would be a very fussy eater if you couldn't find anything to you liking.
The Evening Entertainment was varied to suit all ages. We particularly loved the Spanish Rock Band performing Classic rock songs like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creedence Clearwater & Free. That was just our type of Music.The resident Duo were also very good and very friendly and ended a night with Pink Floyd!
We only stayed in a few nights as such nice bars nearby with Mollys Irish bar and Yates showing football, and Smugglers down by the Harbour for a nice view.
We will look forward to staying at this Hotel again.More

Spent a week here with the missus during September. Hotel was excellent and my third great experience of a Thomson Gold holiday. The hotel was exceptionally clean, the staff from reception, the entertainment team, the restaurant and bar staff were all fantastic, friendly, professional and hard working.
The food was also superb. In fact, during our 7 nights, we ate out twice (once in Cala Egos and once at the harbour). The 2 nights we ate out were the worst meals of the week. Just one tip - please provide croissants at breakfast.
Despite us arriving any time between 10am and 1pm at the pool area, there were no problems with sunbeds around the pool.
The thomson staff in the hotel worked very hard to keep us entertained and there was always something going on. The professional acts every night at 10pm were a mix of good and bad = we particularly enjoyed The Sundaes.
The rooms were modern and equipped with everything we would expect and our room at the rear of the hotel was quiet
The resort was pretty small so I doubt we would return. However, with 100% certainty, we will book again with Thomson Gold as yet again, they gave us a great holidayMore
Lots to like ...
My main reason for writing this review is to absolutely refute the opinions expressed in the reviews by Peter W and karlos89. The latter review is so obviously a cobbled together composite of every previous negative comment ever expressed about the hotel by someone who has never visited it. We visited the hotel in the same month and were once again impressed by the pleasant staff, the efficiency of all aspects of hotel running, the wide choice of food, the good bar, the fine rooms, in an ultra quiet street locality.More

Another visit to this lovely hotel.
This was our 4th visit to the Rocamarina, once again we received a warm welcome when we arrived. We arrived at 9pm and were advised by the reception staff to go straight in to the dining room for some dinner before actually checking in.We were greeted by Juan who remembered us, with a warm welcome.
This hotel is a very clean hotel, our room was looked after by Rosa who was a lovely friendly lady and kept our spotless.
The food is good and plentiful with a vast variety of dishes.
The staff at the Rocamarina are all very friendly especially the bar staff who all seem to remember what drinks people have.Antonio, Diego and Juan all remembered us from last year.
The entertainment is mostly very good, there were a couple of acts not quite to our taste.To mention a few - The Sundaes were hilarious and they can sing, they all had good voices, but, especially Keris (chocolate). Craig Harper was also extremely good with a great singing voice. The Tina Turner/Kenny G act was equally good, although we felt that they would be even better as two separate acts as the base sax appeared to almost drown out the singer.
Helen and John the resident duo were also good. Unfortunately the gold hosts were not as good as those that we have had before, there were too many 'mistakes' during the games and quizzes with some people having to remind them that they hadn't received there prize, We also saw a few people given prizes without even taking part in the activities !!!More
Our first visit to the Rocamarina and Cala D'or. The Rocamarina hotel was as expected of a Thomson Gold hotel. The food served in the restaurant was very good and varied. There were usually 4 varied meats and / or fish being cooked to your liking by the chef plus numerous other dishes already prepared. These were constantly topped up and never left short. The only problem was when a large number of guests required the chefs service at the same time and then a delay was inevitable. There was always a hot sweet but it would have been nice to see a sponge pudding on odd days instead of the crumble but all in all the sweets were more than adequate.
The staff were helpful and cheerful and a special mention for the bar waiter called Antonio who had us in hysterics most nights but was quick and efficient with the service. The only downside was the lack of a safe in the room. Using the ones in reception was a bind.More
