“Very much for little money”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Rov´åcamar is an apartment hotel, situated ar walking distance from the old town of Santa Cruz. Our apartment (for 2) was 3 bedrooms, a small kitchen and a living room with a balcony facing the sea. WIFI was provided in the breakfast room and around. The service was very friendly, yet efficient. Breakfast was OK. The price was about 270 euro for an whole week!

My wife and is stayed at the Rocamar Apartments in early June 2010. They are located about 10 minutes walk to the north of the centre of Santa Cruz.
We found the apartments very spacious, with a well equipped kitchen. They were very clean. Patio door/s lead from the living area out to a long narrow balcony. Apartments are located at the sea-side with wonderful views and crashing waves, or the roadside. While some traffic noise is present during the day, very little traffic noise is present during the night. They appear to be set up for a maximum of 4 people per apartment.
WiFi in Reception/Dining area

The continental breakfast is served from 7:30am to 10:30am.

This complex does not have a star rating (to my knowledge). I would rate is as a very good 2 star accommodation.

We found the staff to be very helpful. The very helpful Maeve speaks perfect English, and, while the other staff members speak very little English, they were very helpful, in particular a lady named Susie.

While the normal vacation time is 12 noon on the day of departure, we were allowed to stay in the apartment till 4pm as we had a late flight. This would not have been possible in high season.

It is easy to reach from the airport using the public bus service. When the bus enters Santa Cruz, it travels along the seafront to the northern end of the town. As soon as it turn left (away from the sea) look over your right shoulder and you will see Rocamar Apartments. Get off at the next stop (about 100m up the road), located opposite the replica of a ship. When you wish to return to the airport, you can catch the bus at the opposite side of the same road (Ship side of the road)

We rented a car from a Garage about 250m from Rocamar on the seafront (Autos S/C. de La Palma, Avda. Maritama 68 ) €25 for one day. No credit card required. Very hassle-free.

If you are lucky to get an apartment with sea view this is a nice and quiet place at the north outskirt of town, within walking distance to the town centre pedestrian area.

Bus: About 15 - 20 minutes stroll to the main bus stop area, which is located further south in town. Approx. 3 minutes walk to the nearest bus stops (i.a. for the airport bus)
But if you plan to take a bus to the north side of the island, there is infact NO bus stop between the Main bus stop area and Rocamar!!!!

Breakfast; buffet is included, you get cheese, ham, jam, toast, coffee, cocoa, orange juice and water.

Service: The reception is not open between late afternoon and the next morning, so I guess late arrivals should be agreed upon in advance.

Beach: There is one row of private houses between Rocamar and the sea and there is a piece of sandy beach, but not very suitable for relaxing/swimming, as there is no space onshore. The nearest beach is about 30 minutes walk to the south outskirt of town, and there are very nice beaches further south at Playa de Los Cancajos, towards the airport. It is possible to walk to Los Cancajos, it takes about 1 hour on esplanade/pavement. And the airport bus also takes you there (10 – 15 minutes)

Apartment; large living room with pantry, separate sleeping room, and private bathroom. Very good cleaning service.
