You can make the most of the warm Majorcan climate when you stay at the Hotel Rocamarina. For starters, the property has more than its fair share of sunbathing spots. The large swimming pool is surrounded by sunloungers and parasols. Plus, there’s a rooftop decked solarium where you can relax on comfy recliners.
The hotel’s location makes it easy to get out into the sun, too. It’s just a minute’s walk to a sandy cove at Cal d’es Pou and the centre of Cala Egos. And you can wander around the marina's cafes and bars of Cala D'or just 5 minutes away.
The post-sunset scene at the hotel is pretty impressive, too. In the main buffet restaurant the chefs set pans on fire at show-cooking stations. Best of all, you can dine al fresco on the outdoor terrace. Later, you can order a drink in the lounge as comedians and live singers entertain you.

Friendly & well run hotel
1st time here, on rec. of our friends who had been in July, & whom accompanied us this time (no, they weren't our carers!); 3-10 Oct, lovely hotel, friendly, helpful, courteous & efficient staff; room (221) was very pleasant, spacious, good shower with solid shower screen (better than those shower curtains which just wrap themselves round you!); room was on ground floor which was actually not a problem reall, garden outlook at opposite side to pool, got sun late afternoon, which was pleasant to sit in; dining facilities were fine, once you got used to the system, made 'friends' with maitre'd Juan, who looked after us well, changing our table & sitting (there are 2 sittings) to fit in with our busy evening schedule one night; we asked for & were allocated a table outside overlooking pool (the weather was still warm enough to sit out most evenings), handy for the evening entertainment which used the outdoor stage (go 2nd sitting & get this type of table to ensure a good position for the rest of the evening); weather cooled a little last 2 x nights & some rain, entertainment was brought inside, which meant things became a little cramped & not quite sufficient seating for everyone, so 2nd sitting diners had very little chance to get a table inside...not really a great problem but slightly annoying. Most coped with this. Food was good, albeit predictable, varied, something for all tastes, puddings were superb, waiters/waitresses very attentive & polite, lovely Polish girl who spoke many languages, put us to shame really! Thompson staff/reps busy & helpful, entertainment was varied & reasonable standard, no complaints really, comedian was superb; hotel was very clean, rooms were cleaned & tidied every day, spotless, thank you house-keeping team, very efficient & always a cheery greeting in the corridor. This hotel is well run & has a lovely atmosphere, most guests were friendly too & not clicky (unlike our previous holiday earlier in July at similar type Thompson Los Gigantes Hotel, Tenerife); Have I said Rocamarina had a lovely atmosphere, oh yes, well I'll say it again...! Not a criticism but we were the youngest here (we are early 50's) although the age range is usually broader than just >60yrs, we were informed...we had to laugh at the 9am race for the best sun beds, which was amusing to say the least, some impressive 'sprints' by seniors to achieve the ultimate goal - we English do this so well, sadly (embarrassingly well, actually), why, oh why, oh why, do you need to do this? I noted beds with towels on unused throughout the day - it really is pathetic! Varied locations for catching the sun within the hotel grounds, loved the decking sun area above the pool, which seemed popular & very quiet, if you wished to chill & relax you could, if you wanted to play games, etc, you could (we didn't ....enough of that at home). If you want outside bars & places to eat there are plenty, locally & in cala'dor & porto petra. Weather (early Oct) was still nice & warm, actually unusually high humidity 1st 2 x days, some rain on 2 x evenings, quite a bit of cloud most days, which was not unexpected for this time of the year, really. We enjoyed exploring the countryside, picking fresh almonds & figs. Hotel is handy for local beach & is only a short, pleasant stroll around the bay away from Cala D'or. Would we go back? Most certainly, but probably in June/July to ensure better/hotter weather.More

"Loved every second"
What can I say, this hotel is perfect in every way, food superb, hotel staff very helpful, room was comfy and clean, entertainment excellent, a week was not long enough so would stay longer if we went again which is most likely. Love Izzy and Mike, two very lovely bubbly people.More

Second visit this year
We've been to this hotel four times over recent years, and just returned from our second visit this year. We love everything about this hotel, including food, staff, and location. It's situated in Cala Egos which is quite a low key resort with shops, bars and restaurants - perfect for customers who like peace and quiet whilst on holiday. It's a short walk from the marina, which is stunning, and a thirty minute walk from it's neighbour, Cala D'Or. A short bus ride away, or if feeling energetic an hours walk away is the beautiful beach situated at Cala Mondrago which is set in a Natural Park, it is total peace and tranquillity, but you do need to be there early to ensure you get a bed, in the height of summer it is very popular and gets busy quite quickly. Can't wait to return next year!More

Another week in Heaven
It had been just over a year since our previous visit to this gem of a hotel and we were going at the end of the season. October is also the start of the rainy season for the area. However any worries or doubts we had were gone as soon as we landed at Palma airport. The weather was glorious the Thomson reps were ready and waiting with clear instructions and clear guidance on where to go for connecting shuttles. No sign of weariness or lack lustre performances so far. On arrival at the hotel it was as we remembered it, immaculate from the outside and even more so on the inside. A warm welcome was given by the on duty reception team and when we enquired about an upgrade on our room this was done in seconds without fuss or delay. Up to our room we went (a superior room number 252 on the second floor) and three doors along from our old room on our previous stay. The room was immaculate as usual with a well appointed bathroom and a large very comfy bed. The air conditioning was whisper quite when placed onto low and so efficient that, that was the only setting we needed. The balcony which is in all honesty not the biggest we have ever been on, but suitable and spacious enough for the table, two chairs and a bit spare. This looked over the pool, deck area and entertainment zone. Sadly due to the number of residents dwindling due to it being the tail end of the season the decision was made to move all night entertainment indoors. This had the benefit of making the atmosphere more intimate and immediate. The entertainment team worked very hard despite the small number of residents and did a cracking job and never lost enthusiasm or energy. The resident duo "Vegas" were a class act with Chris's powerful and smooth voice perfectly complimented by Wendy's keyboard, bass and other instrument playing (at the same time). They played/sang a massive variety of songs and all were preceded by Chris explaining the history and background to it, which was very interesting and informative. The other guest acts were a mixture with some that were outstanding and a couple that were cheesy, but entertaining in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Thanks to the limited number, sun beds were not a problem and whilst before we frequented the tennis club (100 metres away, pay for the beds and parasol at reception for a better price) we did not need to do so this time around. Towels were also available to hire from reception at 3€ each (deposit) and they could be changed every three days. The beach is also very close only 150 metres away and you can purchase tickets from reception at a reduced rate, but this can get pretty crowded. The food at Rocamarina was stunning, with a huge variety of different food types each sitting. Juan the dining room manager runs a very slick team and it was nice chatting to him again, he has the uncanny knack of remembering people, perhaps not by name but he does recognise you again. The bar staff are effective and smooth, with a wide knowledge of their products and are able to recommend drinks to suit any occasion or requirement. When we did venture into town after walking around the marina we found a lovely restaurant "Can Trompe" this was about 50 metres on the left hand side of the street after taking the first left hand junction after walking up from the Marina (go past Rizzo hairdresser on your right and the Bens Gym on your left). The Paella in this eatery was the best we tasted on the island and there was plenty of it. The Orange Blossom Trail tour was superb, a coach trip to the Monastary at Lluc which is glorious. the drive up the windy (snake pass) is not for the faint hearted or those of a nervous disposition. The guides knowledge was superb, informative and fun. We walked around and then sampled some delicious home baking from the cafe there (Almond cake and Carob cake is stunning). We then had a short drive to the fishing port of Soller, after an hour browsing and eating we then took a wooden tram ride to the railway station and from there a wooden train to Palma. Sadly the week passed far too quickly and we were soon on our way back to Blighty just in time for the predicted storms. Overall, Rocamarina delivers what we want, quality time, quality food, quality entertainment in a quality package. The highlight for this visit was for us "Vegas" if Thomson play their cards right they will keep them for another season as they were superb. We will definitely be back to this beautiful hotel.More
