“Was very pleasantly surprised! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

After reading all the reviews on here i have to say i was expecting a pretty average stay in the hotel but it was far from that! The hotel looks noway near as dull as it does on the photos ive seen online, it is a very clean hotel with a decent sized pool i suppose it could have been bigger but we never had any problem with it. The hotel itself is situated in a perfect place just five minutes from all the shops and ten minutes walk from the beach (which i have to admit is a bit tiring with all the steps!) but there is a free shuttle bus which the hotel provides which i thought was brilliant! Our room was adequately sized not huge by any means but there wasnt any need for it to be, it fitted two twin beds in nicely with a tv and desk and a good sized bathroom so was perfect for me and my boyfriend. Our rooms were cleaned everyday top to bottom which impressed us even the balcony window was cleaned! The one niggle i do have is that the shower hook was too high up but like i said its a small issue.
The food was very nice and varied, different foods everyday and even my boyfriend who is incredibly picky found something to eat so must have been okay! There was plenty of choice about 8-12 meat, fish and vegetable dishes to choose from plus about 15 different salad items and 6 variants of bread.
The one thing i would say is there isnt many young people at the hotel so if that bothers you you may be better staying at another but there is plenty of bars nearby if you want different nightlife although we were just happy to relax by the pool to be honest.
All in all a very good hotel very reasonably priced for what you get so if you want a cheap sun holiday with a good hotel book here!

Basic Hotel thats clean & safe, with very helpful & Friendly staff. Breakfast buffet style with a good choice of food on offer. Hotel is in a central location, just a few minutes walk from Train & Bus stations. Ideal if your stay in Spain involves being out & about most of the time, there is so much to see & do and all on the doorstep

Room Tip: We book online, never been dissapointed yet

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was perfect. the room was okay and the staff were really friendly. they have entertainers at night and it is varied and so good to watch before you go out.
The hotel will call taixs for you and they helped us find certain bars we wamnted to go to.
The hotel helped with all our problems and we really fast. The pool and seating were really nice. the train station is about 2 mins away and only costs 1.35 from the airport.
Plus this hotel is not far from a good time out. The shopping centre is only down the road and the beach is a 10 minutes walk which is fantastic as you past sooooo many restaurants and shops where you can buy gifts from. If you have forgotten anything, then just pop down to the shops
The entertainment includes Eugenio's bar, this has great music and atmosphere. the international Bar is down the road and a great karoke bar and cheap drinks. The staff are fantastic there.
Great for a bargain and there is so much to do around there and you can go to benaldmadena for a great party scene where there is an ice bar!!!
Also a visit from the station to Malaga city is great

Just returned from 4 nights stay at hotel Roc. Was quite disappointed with the room we stayed in. There was 3 of us in the room, the room itself was a good size, but the air-conditioning didn't work. The bathroom is tiny and could do with a make-over, or maybe just really good cleaning especially the floor.
I accidentally dropped a sweet on the bedroom floor the first day we got there and that was where it stayed all the holiday, so the floor is not been brushed at all.
The beds are comfy, which we felt was a bonus.
The balcony is a tiny little triangle size, with 2 plastic chairs!
The lifts are sooooo slow, so give yourself enough time to get down to reception if you are booked on any trips etc.
We booked an early morning call at recption to get up on time for return journey to airport, but we never got it, so don't rely on hotel if you have to get up early.
I have to say though that the staff were very nice and helpful.
The food in the restaurant was varied and acceptable, but needs to be kept warmer and regulary probed to ensure food is kept at correct temperature.

This hotel is OK if you are on a budget it has seen better days and could do with a good face-lift. Staff are very nice and friendly but the maids have no concept of the do not disturb sign. The pool is far to small for the hotel and as fore the balconies if you are some one who like to sit and have drink chat with friends then forget it you can only fit 2 plastic chairs on it with no space to move I kid you knot. The food in the restaurant was self-service with a decent selection but some times a bit cold. The hotel is situated in a run down part of town but is not far from Main Square and train station, with very cheap travel. It is also 5 mins walk to the GAY area and that is just a dump full of rent boys and pick pockets all the bars have seen better days and are situated in what looks like to be an old shopping centre top tip for any one GAY I would give this place a miss it has got nothing good going fore it when you have Playa Del Ingles, Sitges, Mykonos and other great resorts through out the world.

Room Tip: Ask for room with large balconie

This hotel does what it says on the tin as previous reviews have stated. Fantastic staff, good rooms, (a bit tired though) and a good selection of food at meal times. Only criticism of the AI package was the quality of the spirits. I can drink supermarket value brands with no problem but could not touch the spirits the hotel provided - they were awful. Did however find other drinks to enjoy during our stay. So if you only drink gin or vodka you might want to consider another hotel.

Never been to Torremolinos before but what a hidden gem. Its fantastic. Clean streets, lots of shops, bars and restaurants, beautiful beaches and plenty of long leisurely walks. Wish I'd found it years ago instead of trotting around Europe.

Get the train from the airport - its a very easy two minute walk at the other end.

Just back from a week in roc flamingo hotel, 3rd visit, was disappointed as i returned there due to the activities they organised durin the day, ie. french bowls, darts, shot putt, etc.. none of that goin on this time, also night time entertainment was not as good.. Chair situation a disgrace, all worn and almost impossible to sit on, mad dash at night for the few decent ones was hillarious, not enough of chairs good or bad to accomodate the amount of people there. Staff are lovely, rooms clean and food is as good as you get anywhere in spain.. Still had a great time..

Room Tip: train station at bottom of street.
