“Comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Room is lovely and clean. Big with 2 balconies.
Bathroom is lovely and clean. Good shower and toilet etc but nowhere to put anything.

The bath towels aren't allowed out the room and the cost of hiring a towel for the pool is 15 euros each with a charge of 3 euros each to change to a freshly laundered towel!

The cleaners are amazing ladies and want to clean the room every day! When they do, the room is pristine!

All inclusive- food is ok. But chips are always cold. Not much difference each day but that's all inclusive for you.
The beer is ok but I found the white wine a bit hard on the taste buds! When it runs out of the dispensers the hotel staff just tell you to have the sangria or red wine!

The morning snack is toast, ham, cheese. A toaster is provided and butter and mini pastries, but not many.

Evening snack is burgers, hot dogs, fish nuggets and mini pastries again.

There is a shuttle bus to the beach and sunbeds can be hired for €12 for 2 with an umbrella.

The shuttle bus also goes into torremolinos town. It's about 10 mins drive. 5 euros for 3 of us on the bus. 6 euros for a taxi back!!
The shuttle buses to town aren't very frequent in the low season.

Torremolinos town- full of shops varying from dirt cheap to very expensive. Plenty of restaurants.
Steps from town centre lead down to sea front. A bit of a climb back up though.
The sea front is again full of restaurants and shops.
Clean town but not very attractive. But not as bad as I expected given it's reputation.


Hotel pools- main one and kids pool (which is shaded-good, but cold because it gets no sun-bad)
Open 10-6 pm then locked. Life guard in attendance some of the time. Although on some days the life guard on was very strict with inflatables and crockery/glass wear round the pool.
Sun beds are wicker like. Leave imprints on your skin so best to have something to lie on. Sunshades and showers available at pool area.

There is a smaller pool which doesn't get much sun but less crowded and near to bar and food. Has a toilet there too. Restaurant has a loo and is not far to walk from pool. Toilets located under main pool also.

Steps and slopes everywhere so not great for pushchairs. Def not good for disabled. Lifts are very small too.

Music around the pool is piped all day. So far had chilled Ibiza which us tolerable, Spanish music which is very repetitive and enya!! Including a Christmas song!

The hotel pool sits above the main highway and can be noisy with birds, music and cars.

Flies are a nightmare!!!
The hotel gardens seem well tended and all loos are always clean.

The usual motivating entertainer tries to get you to do activities in the pool and sign you up for stuff.

Spirits are kept behind bar but included on all inclusive. Full board does not include alcohol.

The shop in the hotel leaves a lot to be desired but has the basics. Only open mon-sat 9.30 til 1.30 then 5.30 til 7.30. On Sunday it's open 11.30 til 5.30.

An Aldi, lidl, Burger King and supermarket are about 15 min walk towards the town.

If you arrive late at night there is a cold plate of meats and cheese left for you and some fruit and bread (which was rock hard).

If you are on a special diet I would advice to byo especially if gluten and/or dairy intolerant although there's nowhere to cook anything except microwaves. Not a great deal of choice for veggies and very minimal for vegans.

There's no way of keeping anything cool either so getting wine from the supermarket isn't perfect. The wine you can buy at the hotel isn't brilliant either. €8 a bottle but at least it's cold.

The hotel sits on a slight hill. The bus from the airport will drop you off at the bottom of the hill but it's only a short walk up to the hotel. Depends how fit you are I guess.

The view from the right side of the hotel is lovely of the Sierra Nevada from our room. Right as you look at the front of the hotel.

The main pool is sunny from 11-4.30 ish due to the height of the sun and the trees (October half term). It closes at 5 pm from the 28th October.




There is slush, cold and hot drinks available all day and crisp snacks at certain times but they go quick!!

There is a yellow Brick road to a play park and volley ball/tennis court.

The entertainment bar is a bit sparse and entertainment limited. We didn't bother to go but there is not a great deal else to do at night in the hotel except a games room which costs a small fortune.

The vending machines are in a few spots but temperamental. You can get change on the ground floor near the games room-opposite the lifts. There is another one but it was out of order when we were there.

This place shuts down next weekend. The day we leave. So everything is winding down including the entertainment.


Wifi in rooms is chargeable. 12 euros for 3 days. Wifi in reception is free. Ask for the code. No one told us this and we discovered it by accident.
Overall nice clean hotel. Good for families. You won't starve but you won't get fat either.

GETTING THERE-You can get the train from the airport. Get off at la colina and head out the station onto the main road and head left towards the hotel.
The train also passes a big shopping centre called 'plaza maya'. Worth a visit if you fancy a bit of shopping. Top name brands but expensive. Nothing's cheap. Places to eat in the court yard and a big cinema.
The train also goes to Malaga. Torremolinos and fuengirola.
But you can't get to Marbella out of season on the train.

Just back from a 4 night break at the Roc Costa,we stayed all inclusive,twin room was huge and spotless,beds made every day,lovely view of the sea,and the lights at night was beautiful,food was very nice,if you could'nt find something to eat you are very fussy,a lot of fish on the menu,my husband was in this element,staff were extremely friendly and helpful,help yourself to the beer,wine and soft drinks,the only down side to here is the location,we did'nt mind as we knew this before booking and love walking but if you have walking issues you could be in trouble,in saying that,the shuttle bus runs every 15 minutes and free of charge,would go back again but only for a short break

Room Tip: Our room was 1010,no noise and lovely view of the sea during the day and the lights at night,lovely...

Me and my husband are leaving this hotel today after a weeks stay.We enjoyed our stay but was disappointed with the hotels location. The room was nice and clean, staff friendly and helpful. This hotel is more suitable for families who dont want to leave the hotel during their stay and for people that like walking to town and the beach. Nice hotel but wont be returning due to its poor location

Take notice of the all of the reviews and make your own mind up. Our expectations weren't met and our experience wasn't great but yours maybe.
We stayed for a week and opted for all inclusive. The staff were friendly and helpful, the check in was efficient and we were advised food was ready in the dining room for us even though we arrived late.
Our room was OK and was cleaned daily with the towels and sheets being replaced regularly. We did not experience any issues with the lifts. However this hotel is not really for anyone with mobility issues. The food was varied and plentiful but hot dishes were not very warm. Although microwaves were available in the dining area. There was an issue with hot drinks was not always available and there are no drinks making facilities in the room. The bars weren't always open when they should be however the staff did open them once they had been made aware.
The entertainment seemed to consist of only bingo and loud piped music, which catered for only some of the hotel guests.

just back from a 4 night break in this hotel. i had read the reviews and when i arrived we were greeted by reception and shown to our room in the old part of the hotel room 312 it was clean comfortable and very spacious. then we were taken to the restaurant because it was late were a salad and rolls had been left for us and we were told to help our self to juice wine and beer. the hotel food was very good but sometimes a bit cold but there are microwaves to heat it up in if you wanted and the food was plenty full with lots of choice. staff were friendly and helpfull. the hotel is a little out of the way from the town but the hotel put on free buses every hour so this was no problem. overall a very pleasant break.

My boyfriend and I stayed at roc costa park hotel for a week and had a lovely time. We arrived very late and we were checked in very quickly and they had saved us some dinner. The staff were very polite and helpful and the reps were very entertaining. The hotel is not far from the beach and they run a free bus/coach that takes you to the beach and back. The food was lovely and overall had a great time. Value for money
