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 two 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 two pools, too.

EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY
The transfer from the airport was efficient & our room was ready on arrival. Hotel was very clean & comfortable if a little dated. Room keys are attached to a sizeable fob - electronic passes would be much better. Very small safety deposit boxes available in reception area for 13 euros per week plus 6 euro deposit - only suitable for passports/tickets. Pool towels were available if you paid at reception & then sought out a Thomson rep who provided you with the towel?? We didn't take advantage of this so not sure of the process if you wanted a fresh towel. Plenty of sunbeds - we didn't witness any mad rush as described in previous reviews but we were there at the start of the season & hotel was fairly quiet initially. TV in bedrooms had several English channels. English newspapers available to borrow in hotel lounge. Restaurant was exceptionally well staffed, tables extremely close together. Wine started at 13 euros per bottle, water 2.5 euros, soft drink just over 2 euros. Food was very good, sufficient choice - sometimes some dishes could have done with being a little hotter. We had originally planned on eating out a couple of nights but didn't in the end as we were happy with hotel restaurant. You can ask at reception set up an account to charge drinks/snacks to your room. Continental breakfast was made available for our early departure on the last day which was a nice touch. Watched (sometimes endured!) a little of the hotel's evening entertainment. There were singers, musicians, dancers & a comedian. Some were lacking in ability but they were all very enthusiastic. Cala Egos & Cala D'Or were pleasant & clean. Marina was quite pretty & there were lots of little coves to discover. We explored on foot most of the time. Local bus services were not that frequent but you could go to Palma for 17 euros return. Bus fills up quite quickly. Bus stop was quite near to the hotel & there were several supermarkets in close proximity. Nearby were Porto Petro & Cala Mondrago - both quite scenic & worthy of visiting. We caught the bus to Cala Mondrago & walked back. The novelty tourist train around Cala Egos/Cala D'Or cost 2 euros - it's less busy late afternoon/early evening & doesn't operate between 1.00pm & about 4.00pm. Cycle hire was available in both resorts - 9 euros per day. There were no set cycle lanes but there wasn't too much traffic. We did two Thomson excursions. The Son Amar Dinner Show just outside Palma was excellent, the entertainment was first class & the food of a good standard (it would have been cheaper booking through a local agent or on line). The other trip was to Valldemossa & Soller/ Port Soller & included tram/train rides. Both resorts were lovely. Booking with Thomson for this trip was preferable as you didn't have to listen to the tour guide speak in multiple languages. Thomson reps visited daily. There was enough to see & do for a week & the weather was very good. We felt this holiday provided excellent value for money & would recommend.More
No thankyou Rocamarina
I wouldn't waste your money on this hotel. It's barely a three star in my opinion. Save your money and choose somewhere decent. The only thing going for the Rocamarina is that it was clean and the maids were the nicest people in the whole place. Sunbeds were reserved by towels first thing so you could never get one unless you were queuing at 8am and this routine was never ever challenged by staff contrary to the hotel's written policy. The pool was tiny and you needed to pay to use the other pool across the road which isn't made clear in brochure. No tea and coffee facilities in the room unless you want to pay even more money. Food system in restaurant was chaos. Entertainment was poor and the pool closed early when it suited the hotel. Overall the hotel had the feel of an unfriendly care home. Won't return here even if you paid me. Vile holiday.More
Much better than I expected.
This was a change of booking, made rather hurriedly, so my wife and I visited the Rocamarina with modest expectations! However, we were very favourably impressed! Our room was pleasant and immaculately clean, albeit with a view across a patch of grass to the corridor opposite! We had no sun at all on our balcony. Everything else proved very good indeed. The food was good, and the maitre d' Juan obliged us by putting us on a table in a quiet corner as we requested. My only mild criticism of the restaurant would be the positioning of the show cooking area - people queue in front of other food, so diners are constantly having to lean over people in the queue to reach food. Otherwise, plenty of choice, hot and tasty. Gluten free rolls will be provided on request. Waiters and waitresses were always cheerful, polite and helpful. The half litre carafe of house red wine was pretty good and reasonably priced. Evening entertainment, which we often avoid, was pretty good - occasionally very good. We also attended a wine tasting, run by the Thomson reps, who turned out in force!!!! Great fun! The resort of Cal Ego is small, but with most shops and restaurants you are likely to need. The pharmacy was helpful and we lunched at two different cafes, both very good. Hotel lunches are not over expensive and very good, too! The evening market was a pleasant diversion. It is worth noting that it is a fair walk to Cala d"Or. Following the Thomson map by road is easiest for those with limited mobility or energy!!! The path to the harbour is very uneven for walking. The land bus runs fairly often but gets busy at times. Do not get the bus to Cala d'Or unless you plan going to Palma first!!! All in all this was a really enjoyably restful break at a very good hotel.More

Thomson Gold Comes up Trumps again
Been busy and only just realised had not put my review of this really good hotel, Thomson have come up trumps once again. From the moment we checked in everyone was so friendly, situated in Cala Egos just a nice walk into the local town and a very pleasant walk to Cala Dor. Entertainment at this hotel was first class and our two entertainment hostess were fantastic they have great personalities and always had time for their guests ( well done to you both ) hope to see you again and the resident duo (Without A Doubt - Helen & John) were terrific, hope they are there next year, yes we are returning for a 2nd visit. The food and cleaness were very good. The only thing I would suggest the hotel do by way of an improvement would be to add the Safe Deposit Boxes into the Bedrooms and change the Key Lock System to Entry Cards as people do not want to Have tiny little boxes with not a lot of space for their valuables stuck at the back of the Reception and with the keys attached to a very heavy key fob it means you have to hand it in each time you go out and ask for it on return, whereas if this was a card entry reception staff would not have to keep breaking off what they are doing and guests would not have to wait if staff were busy . But we are really looking forward to returning next year and we have already booked.More

Last, but not least
A wonderful break at a truly excellent hotel. Although it was the end of the season and the hotel was shutting down until the Spring, the Staff could not have been more attentive. Our 11 days went far too quickly and I'm sure that we'll be back again before too long. The hotel was spotless and all the Staff very professional, giving excellent service but always with a smile and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent with a wide choice of dishes with at least something to suit most guests. It was always fresh and beautifully presented at the spotlessly clean buffet counter. The Thomson reps. and the Entertainment Team also did a cracking job in what was the last week of operations when it may have been a temptation to ease off but no, they were on the ball to the last day even though the guests were down on the last morning to only two couples. We still were provided with a full choice for breakfast with Juan effortlessly multi tasking. It was unnecessary nit picking for our fellow departure guests to complain about "cold coffee" when such an effort had been made by the Dining Room Staff who, when it was brought to their attention immediately resolved such a minor problem. We made great friends amongst the other guests and by the end of our stay, we also regarded the Rocamarina staff as friends. On the last day we were asked to cast a vote by the hotel management to nominate the employee who had done the most to make our stay enjoyable. We chose the entire hotel staff as it would have been very unfair to single out any one individual. The food had been excellent but you never see the kitchen staff, The rooms, public areas and reception were well cared for by the cleaning staff, but you rarely saw them either, and the same goes for the staff who clearly put a lot of time and effort into maintaining the lovely garden areas. It was a real TEAM effort where everyone played their part. Well done Rocamarina! Good new friends, good weather, a great hotel and a quiet and lovely area - just the job. Hopefully, same again next year and we're always happy to lockup on the way out and leave the key under the mat! Liz & SteveMore
