We stayed here recently on a dance holiday, and as the original 4 star hotel was full, we were accommodated in the Esmeralda. Initially I was disappointed as the Esmeralda is a 3 star property but I've got to say I was pleasantly surprised. Good points: * Great location, just a few steps from a lovely, soft sandy beach. *...

My wife & l are at present enjoying a 14 days self catering holiday in the Apartments in front of the hotel (not the suites). The apartments are basic but very clean and are front line to the wonderful beach. Our apartment is on the 11th floor with stunning views from both balconies. Each one has a table and chairs...

I have just returned (4th October) from a weeks all-inclusive stay at the Roca Esmeralda with my family, (brother and parents). The holiday was excellent from start to finish, friendly and efficient reception staff greeted us on arrival, clean rooms with excellent views and all the amenities we needed. The pool area was spotlessly clean and the bar staff were...

Staff were not helpful at all, the food was either luke warm or cold, but the rooms were clean but need upgrading. After 1 day of being there, we asked our tour operators to move us, which they did the next day, the reception staff never once asked us why we were leaving. Public transport was poor and for a...

This hotel is basically where you shouldn't go if you're less than 60 years old. First : it really needs to be renovated: rooms: creepy / lobby / fitness room: all the machines are old and they charge you if you want to use them / spa : everything is old. You feel like you are in the seventies ......

I found this hotel to be very good, some previous critics complained about too many old Spanish people there, what they forget is that early September the children go back to school so it is the ideal time for us seniors to have our holidays. The food was OK, remembering that it is a mainly Spanish hotel so it won't...

Absolutely 100% Spanish hotel. Most of the guests are over 50 Spanish and ignorant/rude. Food is disgusting and cold no matter what time u go down to eat. hygiene is a serious issue and would be closed down if in england.
