What a place! Just got home after a week's holiday in Fuertaventura and came in here every night. Chilled out atmosphere and great music every night. Gary and Mandy are brilliant hosts and the musical acts, in particular Dave, Jonny and Gary himself were a treat to listen to (and that's from a professional musician!). If you're in the area...

Found this place online before we went to corralejo and wasn't disappointed one bit. Cozy intimate atmosphere with musicians who are some of the most talented absolutely flawless and also built a rapport with the audience. Anybody who loves music will be well satisfied and the prices are reasonable too!! A must if your in town!!

If you love music, this is the bar to go to in Corralejo. There is live music every night of the week. Excellent guitar playing, with sometimes a little bit of comedy thrown in. Mandy (one of the owners) is usually serving behind the bar and always greets you with a lovely smile. Not ideal for small children, but children... More

Even after more than 10 holidays in Corralejo and visits during each of them to Rock Island it remains simply the best music venue and bar in town. Dave, Gary and Johnny entertained us with songs new and old to us and thoroughly entertained us with their musical ability and their humour. We even mananged to stay up until 02:00... More

The interior was super cool. Being a fan of dive bars with a rockabilly twist, this was perfect. You can tell the owners really wanted to create an "upscale" yet "at home" rock bar. The only problem is (sorry, guys!) the music was terrible. The owner (sorry, again) plays with his pals every-so-often and it's all the hits, which you... More

Hi ilusasha, many thanks for your review, although I think you may have us confused with another bar. We don’t have bands playing at the Rock Island bar, just solo or duo acoustic acts. Either way, we hope to see you at the Rock Island on you next visit to the island :) More

I have reviewed the bar before but felt it was well worth posting again because this bar has everything for the music loving holiday maker and the fact that no two nights are the same. Aside from the music, which is most professional when it needs to be but always delivered in a very laid back atmosphere, ( RIB style... More

Love this bar. Great live music every night hosted by the adorable Mandy and the annoyingly handsome Gary. Always made to feel welcome. Just off the main strip. Prices are good and a great ambience. Faultless.
