3 minutes (maximum) walk from the train station in Torremolinos.
The Roc offers good clean rooms without the frills. Rooms are cleaned evry day and towels are changed daily - doesn't always happen in many Spanish resorts.
The reception staff are always helpful and check-in is always fast and efficient.
Breakfast offers a plentiful choice of both hot and cold options - they do try and cater for most tastes.
The bar area is pleasant and overlooks the pool are and gardens.
This is a three star hotel, so keep the low price in mind and enjoy the great location, right in the centre town.

Room Tip: Facing the pool rooms have the sunniest aspect with seaviews from the higher floors. If you want a...

Stayed at the roc flamingo in the 4th July for a week. Had a great holiday. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful the while time, our room was spacious and cleaned everyday. The hotel is a 2 min walk to train station were the trains are very cheap to Malaga, benelmadena and fuiengarola. The beach is about a 20 minute walk but there are lots of shops and restaurants on the way down some steps, however the hotel does provide a free bus to the beach and back. The pool area is set out in a strange way with only a few sun beds around the pool but we didn't stay around pool much anyway because the beach so was nice. The hotel was mainly full of Spanish guests but they didn't bother us. We stayed all inclusive which for what we paid was value for money, breakfast was fried eggs bacon etc and for tea and lunch always meat fish pasta and salad. The bread was a little stale sometimes and the orange juice tasted like water! The snack bar only consisted of ham and cheese sandwiches wrapped in cling film, which was disappointing. Walls in the rooms are quite thin and was woken up around 3 by the couple next door.
Overall we had a lovely holiday and for what we paid the hotel did the job !

Room Tip: Pool view or else you will be on the main road

Have recently returned from a week long AI stay at the Roc Flamingo and we found we had nothing to complain about. It's not a 5 star hotel and if this is kept in mind and remembering how inexpensive it is, I would hope people have similarly good experiences. The staff are friendly, the hotel is clean and tidy, our room was cleaned daily and fresh bedding on the 3rd day. The food was good; enough to choose from and plenty of it. The pool area is adequate with plenty of loungers and a nice grassed area if your prepared to spread your towel out on the ground. Yes, majority of the guests seem to be Spanish but that's not a bad thing and us Brits were even outnumbered by the Danes. It's a short walk to the railway station so no need for costly airport transfers 1.6€ per person each way! The walk to the beach is straightforward but not for the weak of heart - plenty of stairs to get the ticker pumping. All in all the Roc Flamingo represents great value for money and we would seriously consider returning there. A special word should go out to Sara and Dumi, the animacion staff, who worked really hard and tried to get us to join in with all the activities despite our constant rejections.

Stayed with 3 girlfriends for 3 nights in June. The rooms are basic and the hotel needs abit of updating but for what we paid for it, it did the job. Good location for the bars but it's abit of a walk to the beach, just get a cab, it's only a few euros.
The pool and outside area are spot on though. Really good sun trap. We didnt really see any of the staff as we were self catering but from going to the bar and reception, they seemed really nice.
All in all a good hotel if you are using it for a base.

Room Tip: lower levels as the lifts are slow, very slow!
