having travelled to Gran Canaria 10-12 years ago and staying at the busy end of the island and really not liking it I was worried when my husband said he had booked for us to go again - but I neednt have been. Roca Negra is a wonderful hotel in a beautiful and rugged location. If you're looking for lots of bars, restaurants and full english breakfast then this hotel and area is not for you. If you want a peaceful, relaxing time local food and drink and a chance to practice your spanish (mines not very good) then Roca Negra is the place, Staff are friendly and helpful, some with more english than others. Food is good although limited choice, but plenty of veg, salad and fruit and lovely desserts and cheese. We were staying B&B which gave us opportunity to explore the local port area for lunch and dinner - lovely. The hotel is immaculately clean, pool area lovely, kids pool and jaccuzzi hot, adults pool a bit chilly. Gentle, but initially hilly walk into port area along sea front - if i can do it most people can. Great place for a few days in the sun - 4/5 nights would be enough - perhaps 2 weeks would be too long. A good place to stay if you're island hopping as catamaran to Tenerife leaves from port. Would like to visit again, especially later in the year to see how different it might be later in the season
