This Flamingo show is in a fabulous cave with tons of copper pots and ladles hanging from the ceiling. The dancers are between mediocre and moderately good and they are accompanied by a singer and a guitarist who are fine. What they lack in talent and energy, is made up for by the lovely room.

In Cueva de Rocio you can enjoy the real flamenco dances. Of course nowadays only for touristic purposes, but you can see and feel that the artists love what they are doing. Some dances with the beats of simple instruments, shoes and one guitar were very good. As vegetarian you can eat well prepared vegetables, the meal tasted well. The... More

An evening spent at Rocio can be a fantastic experience, if you're lucky enough to catch their lead singer and not some replacement. On the downside, the quality of their show has diminished over the last two years.

My Granada friend and I bought the tickets at the door. It cost 20 euro and include a drink of either sangria, wine or beer. The Rocio family is one of the earliest gypsy family that had settled in Granada. I agreed with what most of the reviewers said about this place being real touristy but disagree that the show...

Seeing Flamenco in a proper Sacramonte cave rather than a restaurant should be a part of any trip to Granada. You have to realise that this is where Flamenco was born in the gypsy area of Granada, so if you come here you have to accept their culture and for example, the fact that they don't speak English. You can... More

Very expensive at the first place. And what you will see it people simply working. doing their everyday job. I went to Jazz Club in Barcelona where i was amazed by Flamenco performance. Do not go to La Rocio you will regret spent money and time. Everythign is set up for tourist who DO NOT know what Flamenco is. When... More

Two words: stay away. Our hotel M.A Nazaries recommended this for food and flamenco. we got some old salad, over cooked meat and very bad service for 62€ p.p. this is clearly a tourist rip off where the hotels get a very high commission to recommend.

We loved the show. We paid 20 euro for a one hour show including a drink and felt it was worth it. The cave felt genuine and the music and dancing was quite entertaining.

We saw two flamenco shows in Sevilla, but neither could touch the show we got in this cave in Sacromonte, Granada. The show was complete with ruffles and shawls tossed in our faces and sweat flying. It was raw and beautiful and filled with emotion and soul, and left the audience gasping and begging for just one more dance, as... More
