There's not many places these days where you are welcomed as warmly as you are at the Rock Island Bar. Tucked just off the main shopping strip, it's a lovely bar with reasonably priced drinks and fantastic live music every night - what's not to like!!! The owners and staff are lovely and the musicians that they attract are incredibly talented. We found the bar on the second night of our first visit to Corralejo in 2010 and spent pretty much every night of our 2 week visit in the bar, relaxing and listening to the great music. We did try a couple of other music venues but they just didn't cut the mustard in comparison. We enjoyed this holiday so much that we booked another 2 weeks in the resort in January 2011 (something we very rarely do and never in consecutive years) and spent EVERY night in the Rock Island Bar and there is no doubt that we will be back again. Only problem about posting this review is the likelihood that we won't get a seat next time we visit!

A brilliant venue for live music . The bar has an informal atmosphere, very high quality sound system and very talented singers and musicians. It's a must do.

I saw a sign in Corralejo last week. "Isla Tranquila". The Rock Island Bar is quite probably the reason why, whoever came up with the tag, named the island so aptly. I spend a great deal of time going to music venues around the UK, for pleasure or on business and I've yet to find anywhere with such a cool, laid back vibe as the Rock Island Bar. The staff and artists are a really nice bunch of people, welcoming, funny and sincere. The atmosphere created there by them, along with the decor, nick naks and mellow audience is such a relaxing experience, Reminds me of so many friends' homes, places where chilling is the order of the day. The low lighting is perfect to kick back, sup your favourite tipple and listen to quality tunes played with a passion you rarely see here at home. I go there every night I'm in Fuerteventura....be damn rude not too! There are nightly webcasts too which always makes me miss the place so much. It has well and truely got under my skin, in my soul and has helped heighten my taste and yearning for quality acoustic music. God forbid but if ever there came a time were it to close, the island would this regular visitor, it means that much to me. Mandy, Gary, Nikky, John, James....and every one else who has contributed to making the RIB such a success, thank you. :)

Been going here for as many years as i'd like to remember, the acts have changed over the years but the standard of music hasn't. James Gillespie has taken over the throne from my previous favourite Eric (unpronounceable surname, now owner of imagine piano bar)
Thanks to Gary and all the Staff for another excellent time in November. Hopefully back soon!

We have been over to Fuerteventura twice and both times spent quite a few evenings in here. It's the very best live music, none of the other places in town are a patch on it. Drinks are great value aswell and the cava is delicious. :-) we will be back.
