Great hotel - but not if you're disabled or have a pram/buggy with you!

We greatly enjoyed our week's stay here - however there is one bad point to this hotel, and that is accessibility. We had our 7month old baby in a stroller with us, and found getting around the hotel and going up and down to/from our room an absolute nightmare. There are lifts, but the doors are heavy and have to be pulled outwards so you can get inside - made even more difficult by the fact that the doors don't stay open, so you need to hold the door open while trying to climb inside the lift. Ridiculous. A feat near-impossible with either a buggy or stroller, or if you're in a wheelchair or on crutches. Dangerous and a deal-breaker for us. We won't be back next year because it's too dangerous to take our son, who'll be a year and a half old when we next go. But, that aside, it's a great hotel. The food is good, with a decent selection of good food at breakfast time, and a mouth-watering evening menu. In fact, the evening meal we had here was one of the best of our whole holiday. The location is great - in the old town but just under five minutes away from the hustle, bustle and noise of the bars, clubs and restaurants of the main square. The staff are polite, friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, spacious and modern - and we really appreciated the balcony and amazing sea view. The pool area is nice too. All in all, a decent hotel if you're able-bodied and don't have a child in a pushchair.

Passed this restaurant which is part of the hotel a number of times & it was always busy & the food on the plates looked good, so one evening we decided to give it a go, big mistake ! Everything about this restaurant is superficial, the food was awful, the service insincere & the buffet we ordered at 21.00 actually wrapped up within the hour to facilitate for breakfast the next day, which wasn't an issue because it was so bad but would have been had we been enjoying it ! I was in a mind to complain or even walk away without paying but my better half chose to just pay the bill for a quiet life ! Just to add, not once did anyone ask if we were enjoying our meal & the jelly from the desert section of the buffet resembled something from Tiswas !

We had a great time rooms were clean and complete little on the small side but with a perfect view of the ocean. Service in the hotel restaurant and the front desk were perfect very friendly and professional. Could not wish for much more and definitely would pick Rocomar again.

We have just returned from the rocamar hotel after 8 days there. We chose there because it was the first hotel I had ever stayed abroad with my husband Even then it was a lovely hotel. Very modern and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Rooms cleaned and fresh towels everyday. You get what you pay for with this hotel we were on the 4 th floor with sea view and just above infinity pool which is fantastic just the right temperature on very hot day. The view when you are in the infinity pool is fab. The only one downside and it's not such a big downside Was the breakfast was not good the fried breakfast never changed on any day and everything else to eat was much the same I know people may read this review and think oh well you can't please everyone but we did pay for b&b but we only had it two mornings and had breakfast just across at the local coffee shop which I might add is great. That said it is still a great hotel with great staff.
