When we first arrived on Friday afternoon, I have to say I was a little disappointed. In terms of decor, the hotel is a little dated now and definitely 3 star, not 4. A few beers later and we suddenly saw some commotion from the top level above the pool. Foam Party! This was awesome and I recommend you don't miss this if you're staying on a Friday. Both the kids and adults had an amazing time. Really got our holiday off to a flyer and I began to change my mind about the hotel!
The food and drink here can't really be faulted. Plastic cups during the day as you'd expect, but bigger than I've had at other all inclusive hotels. You get glasses with dinner and in the evening for the entertainment. Self service beer and wine means you're hardly ever queuing and the self service Mojito in the evening went down a storm!
There were lots of Spanish there, probably more over the weekend as mentioned, but they didn't cause us any problems whatsoever. Not sure what all the negative comments are about. If you desperately want to be surrounded by Brits, go to Blackpool for your hols :)
One downside is the hotel isn't really near anything. The coach to the beach though is great and there is a special reserved area on the beach for Roc hotels so you always got a good spot. Cheaper to pre-book the loungers at the hotel. I wasn't very impressed with Torremelinos at all though and as a result, we spent almost every evening at the hotel. Meant we had a very cheap holiday though, which was a result!
We did spend at a day at the Waterpark which was great fun although some of the rides weren't really worth the long wait. If you go, I'd avoid the Black Hole and the Slalom rides - all the others were generally better rides with much shorter queuing times.
We had some stress on the last day as we got stuck in the lift, but they came to sort us out within 10 mins.
Over all, I doubt we'd go back because the resort was way too built up for me. I much prefer the smaller resorts in the Balearics.
If however you want a great family holiday, happy to spend the majority of your time at the hotel and don't want to spend much money when you're there, you'll have a wonderful time at Roc Costa Park
