We are so pleased we read the reviews of this hotel and decided to book. The staff, from reception to breakfast and cleaning, were all incredibly friendly & helpful. They were happy to make us reviving cups of tea at midnight and stored our luggage for a few hours on our last day. We travelled as a group of 3 friends (female) and the hotel kindly added a camp bed to our room. The balcony was roomy enough for three. As per previous reviews there is little storage, so bring extra hangers. The bathroom was lovely too. Breakfast was very good (lovely coffee) and no shortage of items, even later in the morning (it is served until 11am which is great if you have some late nights!). The beach is around the corner and very nice. The pool of the hotel opposite is available during your stay and was very quiet; all loungers have cushions. The ferry to Ibiza Town is 3.20 euro return and takes 5/10 min, & is just a couple of mins walk from the hotel. By the marina are some great cafes (Cafe Sidney was our fave) and boutiques, serving the yachting crowd. Very easy walk to El Devino, Pacha and the taxi rank (by Pacha). There is a useful Spar just opposite the Hotel Argos nearby. Overall, can't wait to go back, thoroughly recommended.

Just came back yesterday from this Hotel as it was recommended through Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint at all.

We were 4 professional girls in our 30's, not too strapped for cash, were looking for a mixture of a bit of nightlife, some sightseeing and some rest. We got all of them through this hotel.

Location:-
Firstly this area of the Island is quieter than other areas but also has enough bustle and life for the evening. The fact the hotel was really easy to get to Ibiza town (old and new) was fantastic..you can take a regular boat from outside the hotel or like us walk in the early evening and enjoy the warm and very beautiful ibiza dusks (took about 30mins by foot along the flat).

A 5 minute stroll around the back of the hotel brought you onto the very beautiful and laid back (no Croydon Chav types here!) Talamancia beach. Mainly singles in late 20s/30s/40s (hetro and gay mix), a spinkling of families and older couples. Lots of lovely bars and restaurants along the beach.

Right opposite the hotel is a larger hotel which we could use the pool. (large with lovely views) .didnt need to ask and never thought we were breaking any rules.

Hotel Rooms
We had one with a balcony and one with no balcony and sea views. All of us with happy with our rooms, clean, seem to be freshly decorated, beds very comfortable, fantastic shower (lots of power behind it), fresh towels and rooms cleaned and beds made at a very convient time (we never saw them do it rather than other hotels when you get knock on the door at 7am!!)

Only downside (which I think someone else here mentioned) is not much storage space (but to be honest ibiza you dont need much..we completely overpacked. They really could do with a few more hooks on the doors and in the bathroom but apart from that it was fine. Pack a few spare hangers though to increase your storage.

It is quite near another bar which one of my mates found a little distracting but they did keep the windows open and she was a light sleeper..and the bar closed around midnight. We, in our room, had no problems with the noise at all and slept soundly.

Breakfast
What more could you ask...sitting on the outside terrace overlooking the harbour and mulitmillion pound yachets..with old Ibiza town over th harbour. Fresh friut, unlimited fresh made coffee, fresh baked muffins, bread crosiiants etc, cheese and ham, cerels, toast etc. Really made us want to linger before dragging ourselves into the sunshine over the road to sit by the lovely pool!

Staff
Were wonderful..helpful,charming, smiling, nothing was too much of a problem, reception was always staffed despite the small size of the hotel.

Overall Style
Beautifully decorated..looked fresh and new, light and airy and dont think the hotels website does it justice. Quite quiet which is what we wanted from a hotel with 16 rooms..so really felt that we were coming back to a haven to relax.

Highly recommend this hotel..bit loathed to say how good it is because it will make it harder to get a reservation but with a quality hotel of this nature and run by such lovely people they really deserve to do well.

(PS we also noticed they had radiators in the rooms..so i guess they are open in the winter and now BA are doing winter flights..maybe a good option for the winter as well.)

This hotel definitely offers you more than a 2* would. The rooms are very modern and clean, you don't need to take your own beach towel, they'll give you one.

No swimming pool? Well, you can use the swimming pool of the 4* hotel in front of Rocamar. And the beach is just one street behind the hotel.

Breakfast is great as well as the breakfast room, where you can enjoy an excellent view over Ibiza marina and castle.
Our room also had this view.

Staff were very helpful, providing you all kind of information regarding motorbike rentals, boat trips to Formentera and so on.

The hotel is located in a quiet area, a 15 minute walking distance from the centre.

A few of us stayed here for a few days and what an unexpectedely fantastic hotel! Its in Talamanca, just across the bay from Ibiza town. The rooms were clean, with great bathrooms and fresh towels daily. The hotel had a great bar with outside terrace and the breakfast was brilliant. The staff were so helfpul and always on hand to pour another vodka-limon or give directions. No pool but less than 5 mins to the beach! And just a minutes walk to the ferry point to Ibiza town.We're planning on going back to Ibiza next year and this is definitely the place to stay.

We have just come back from the Rocamar after a 4 night stay. We booked back in December after reading the review on here. We requested a Sea view thinking that a Sea view would come with a balcony, Wrong! one room had a sea view, one didnt and neither had a balcony. As we were only there for 4 days it was ok but if we were there longer it would have spoilt our holiday.
The views from teh breakfast terrance were first class, Antonio was extreamly hospitable as were most of the staff.

The beds were very comfy, the rooms nicely decorated although I would suggest they change th colours of the walls, the bathrooms small but nice.

I was dissapointed with the lack of view and balcony as that would have made the expereince perfect as the location is brilliant for talamanca beach, pasha and el divino and only a 30 mins stroll around the harbour to the old town. Its an older style building whcih they have done up. rooms were 136 euro a night so not cheap either.

We have just arrived back from Ibiza this weekend and are already having withdrawl symptons. We stayed at the Rocamar hotel the first week after finding the hotel through this site. Can I thank the lady who put the first posting on the site in Febuary. She is totally right about this place it is clean, staff are very friendly and the view across to the marina is spectaluar, especially in a morning eating your breakfast.

The only thing we were a little unhappy with was the lack of storage in the room, if you are going for more than a couple of days expect to live out of a suitcase.

The hotel is within walking distance to Ibiza toown and the beach, the walks of which we thoughly enjoyed on an evening. We would hihly recommend this little gem of a hotel and plan to return some time next year.

We accidently found the Rocamar... and am so, so happy we did.
I spent my 30th birthday in Ibiza so was looking for something really special.
Its a small and personal hotel, where the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The rooms are contemporary and super clean although no luxuries like mini bar.
We had breakfast over looking the harbour (there is no beter way to start the day)
Its a five minute walk to Talamanca beach (which is a quite beach) and we could walk home from Pacha.
30 miniute walk to Ibiza town or take the ferry just at the harbour, which costs around 5 euro and takes 10 minutes.
28 euro to San Antonio
Staff know you by name and know the island very well so gave excellent advice on what to do etc.
Especially wonderful is Antonio who always took time to advise us and reccommend on what to do and not do. "Antonio you were wonderful"
I am already planning when to come back and visit... Seriously people if you like small hotels, friendly service and something within close proximity to the action but far enough away to escape... Rocamar is your place
Oh and hire a scooter you will see so much more
