The Rocamar are situated on a hillside location overlooking the town of Puerto Rico and out to the ocean. Rooms are light and spacious, and come with a kitchenette, terrace and air conditioning. The swimming pool here is paired with an ocean-view sun terrace, where you’ll find plenty of loungers and parasols. A bar takes care of drinks and snacks, and there’s a handy shop on site for stocking up on supplies. It’s a short walk to Puerto Rico’s shops, bars and restaurants, and a convenient 10-minute stroll down to Puerto Rico’s beautiful beach, if you fancy a change of scene.

Overview of Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria

The laid-back resort town of Puerto Rico is ideal for families and couples who want the best of both worlds on holidays to Gran Canaria. Sweeping golden sands and the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Sea are easily accessible, with the hustle and bustle of Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas easily reachable by car or bus.

It is a great base from which to explore Gran Canaria’s beautiful south coast and soak up the warm climate thanks to its close proximity to the west coast of Africa.

Resort Summary

The two main beaches in Puerto Rico are pretty unique, and we aren’t just saying that – both are man-made, which means both had their sands shipped in from foreign locations. The tranquil Amadores’ shores came from the Caribbean, while the golden grains of the bustling Puerto Rico Beach came directly from the Sahara, making that first squish of sand between your toes that much more exotic.

A Blue Flag award-winning beach for its superior water quality and attention to environmental preservation, the Amadores is loud-music free, ball-game free stretch of sand, whose calm bay is ringed by a wall of rocks that keep the waves tempered. At the Puerto Rico Beach, relaxation-ready holidaygoers can rent sunbeds and stretch out underneath the Spanish sun while children splash in the lightly lapping water.
