I'm a 21 year old man who visited Hotel Rocamarina with his parents, sister, and brother-in-law. We were offered to stay at this hotel on account of it's lack of children. The best thing about the hotel is how clean everything is. It feels very upmarket. There's a decent about of sunbeds and the pool is a decent size. If you happen to be stuck for a bed or pool space, there is a club across the road affiliated with the Rocamarina that has its own pool and beds. The hotel rooms were nice and had effective air conditioning if you happened to get too hot.

We went half-board, and whilst the range of food on offer for breakfast was decent, it never changes. The rota seems to be more apparent during dinner, but the food was hit and miss. One day would be really good for food, and the other would be very questionable in terms of quality and temperature. You're free to have as much tea, coffee and juice in the morning as you want, but you're charged for all of your drinks at dinner (even water). Make sure you take long pants with you too, as they want you to dress smartly as dinner time. The biggest issue with the catering was the rules about where you sit and when. We were assigned a table to sit at and at what time, yet some people claimed they didn't have to sit where they were told to. We heard of one group of visitors who were eating breakfast, only to have the waiter pick up their food off the table and tell them to sit outside. it's a very questionable system that I'd recommend you go through with the head waiter thoroughly incase you end up sitting somewhere you don't want to. You do have many alternatives to go to in Cala d'Or, however, which happens to be a very nice and clean area consisting of various shops, restaurants and bars. It's worth looking at hotels based in Cala d'Or for the sole purpose of having these places at walking distance.

The biggest issue I had with this hotel (remember my age) is that about 98% of people staying there weren't young. The average age of people staying at this hotel seemed to be about 60 or so. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, because you're highly unlikely to have any of them making a nuisance with noise or something. But as a 21 year old, I felt alienated, almost to the point where I felt I didn't belong in this hotel. I do have to stress that I'm not one for 'lads holidays'. I much prefer going on holidays that are relaxing. But even my brother-in-law, who's approaching 40, was hesitant to take part in quizzes and competitions incase the other guests were annoyed that somebody younger than them won. That was another thing too. Each day, the Thomson reps handed out daily quizes to complete 'for fun,' that you'd believe were copied out of the puzzle section of a newspaper. I don't want to generalise the older generation, but this isn't the sort of thing younger people do very often. Even the 'quiet room' looked like the reception in a retirement room.

The Thomson reps were friendly and happy to help. Despite the quizes, the entertainment they put on isn't too bad. Depending when you eat, you can be having your dinner while playing along to a quiz going on inside (which can be good or bad, depending on whether you like eating while playing a quiz).

Overall, it's a nice hotel in an even nicer area. The age-issue isn't a massive hinderance, but it's very hard to ignore. And depending on your age and who you go with, you might end up noticing it more than you'd want to. I'd suggest looking at the trips and activities on offer so you don't get bored (except the Orange trip, which pretty much consists of sitting on a coach, a boat, a tram, a train, then a coach again with not a whole lot to do). I would recommend the Starfish boat trip though, which gives you the opportunity to have a swim in the Mediterranean (I did, and now I won't eat salt for a month). I'd HIGHLY recommend Son Amar though, which is a cabaret/variety show with a free three-course meal and endless supply of water and wine. It's one of the greatest shows I've ever seen.

We can recomend this hotel. Food always hot and plenty of choice at breakfast & evening meal.
Evening Entertainment was first class Vega duo most evenings, Thomson Gold touring team 3 times during our 14 day stay.
Daytime & Evening entertainment reps Yzzy & Mike both outstanding and made our holiday very enjoyable, they both worked extreemly hard to keep all the guest entertained.
The hotel is spotlessly clean. All staff are friendly and very helpful.
It was nice to have the same table in the dining room through out the holiday.
We have already booked to go back again in October.

We've just returned from a 7 day holiday at this hotel & can't wait to go again! This is a comfortable, clean & friendly hotel in a beautiful location. The evening entertainment was a little 'old' for us but never the less very well done, we made the most of the location & went for some lovely walks in the evenings. The staff are very friendly, there was no problem getting sunbeds, excellent breakfast, evening meals a little bit boring but well cooked & lunch time snacks very good. Highlight of the week was Izzy's Splash dance - very funny!

Room Tip: If you like to go to sleep early ask for a room away from the pool area as the entertainment goes on until quite late at night.

After just reading some reviews i think we must have been in a different hotel,The rocamarina we stayed in was fantastic, staff were all very nice, rooms were spotless and furnished to a high standard. The food was really good PLENTY to choose from always hot food cooked on front of you was excellent e.g. anything ranging from fish to meat chicken prawns etc also all the meats carved for you were good, good and varied selection of veg & potatoes,not to mention the other dishes that were available e.g. casseroles, fish,paellea,salads oh & the indian curries are a must. oh forgot to mention breakfast what can i say if you could'nt find anything you liked then i'm afraid there's something wrong with you even the jams & marmalades were homemade. Pool area was nice as was the garden never had a problem getting a sunbed. Went to tennis club one day nice & relaxing also had a lovely lunch there. Did,nt stay in much for entertainment as we like to wander a few nice bars near by.Also went into cala'dor one night only 5euro's in taxi lots of nice bars if your looking for a change.Went on trip to puerto pollensa good day out nice market i'm not really into markets but this one was nicely set out around all the little windey streets.Also enjoyed Palma.Only fault i can think to mention is it was'nt long enough! P.S we had plenty english channels on t.v can'nt wait to return.

Room Tip: We were in room 0014 on the bottom,only down side did'nt get much sun on balconey was'nt a problem as we were'nt in room much ,very peaceful & quiet for a good nights sleep.

My wife and I stayed for 7 days to 4 June this year. We didn't know what Thompson Gold meant and from some reviews we didn't expect much. We were so wrong, the hotel was excellent, the Staff brilliant and the food (and I am a big eater) fantastic and plentiful. We got from previous reviews that the dining room supervisor was a bit of a sergeant-major....not at all what a really nice man...on his day off things were not as well organised, staff tried but it was not as well co-ordinated, he was always courteous and very pleasant. The young man who cooked eggs was friendly and always smiling...Diego who was a barman/waiter both down the Cove and in the bar/lounge was brilliant, The room cleaners were so pleasant and willing to help, we had a thoroughly great holiday and would certainly go again. I would encourage people to spend their holiday here, the only 'down' side was the transfer from Palma airport to the hotel..(2 and half hours and we were the last stop) but that had nothing to do with the hotel and staff.

Room Tip: South side rooms are quieter.
