The complex is right on the seafront of Puerto del Carmen, and although there is no pool bar, the Rocas Blancas Cafe is right outside the complex on the pavement with plenty of seating and sun umbrellas. Prices were very reasonable and takeaways were available.
Hotel staff were helpful, there is a small seating area with sofas just outside reception, and free WiFi. There are also computers available at a cost.
There is no entertainment on site, but as the complex is situated in the middle of the main area there are plenty of bars, restaurants and music venues within easy walking distance.
I would stay there again, but for anyone with walking difficulties there are a lot of steps up to both reception and to the apartments on the higher levels.
We stayed in block D which has a sea view, the apartment was very clean & bright with all facilities. If we needed anything it was brought to us promptly.
It was beautiful waking up to the sea view every day & nice to sit on the balcony & watch the world go by.
The bedrooms are situated at the back so you hear very little noise from the promenade at night. The maid service was excellent, towels changed most days, cleaned six days out of seven. The bar staff were very friendly & helpful & the bar has sattelite tv ,pool table & tables outside to relax for a quiet drink ,overall a lovely atmosphere.
We would stay there again highly recomended apartments & location.

Taxi rank right opposite very handy if you're going off to the shopping centre or water park.
Apartment was cleaned most days out of the 14 we stayed, maids and all staff very nice and friendly especially the 2 that ran the pool bar. Pool bar very cheap and nice to sit and just relax for the day, also does food which is nice and cheap but does take a while to come.
Pool is nice and clean a bit on the small side, but ideal for children and me as i dont swim!! Lots of loungers round though.
Room quite stuffy so would advise you to hire a fan if you go when its hot, we had to keep the door closed due to the noise from the bars whoich could then not be heard. Mosquito's were also a pain but soon helped that with the plug's bought from local shop.
All in all a very pleasant stay, very relaxing and would definitely book to stay there if went back again, Also would be much cheaper to book directly with them, google search Rocas Blancas Apartments

Situated right on main street close to all bars, restaurants and beach and also directly across from taxi rank.
Was in block D which overlooked main street and sea but bedroom at rear so street noise not heard when door closed.
Although there was a bar and its own pool these appeared not be much used, probably because of the apartments central location.
Only down side probably, which was not an issue in April, was the lack of air conditioning which I would imagine would make it unbearably stifling during the Summer and if you opened windows and doors then you would never sleep for street noise.
Book out time on day of departure was 1200 hours but I was allowed to keep the room until I was picked up by coach at 1800. There was no charge for this but again this could have been because it was April and that bit quieter.

The accomodation although not really modern was perfectly o.k. Everything worked, no problems. The cleaner came in every day to mop around & the towels were changed at least twice.
The pool are was hosed down every morning & kept tidy. Although centrally placed there was no cause for concern over noise.
We had an apartment at the front which meant that you could watch the world go by, even when it was raining ! This gave a great seafront / sea view. The road was a bit noisy but did not cause any problem at night as the bedroom is at the rear.
Overall excellent for a 2 / 3 star rating. We would recommend to family & friends.
We would use again ourselves.

There is no entertainment during the stay but Jose the pool side barman was a good laugh. These apts are slap bang in the middle of PDC so you can't go wrong for pubs, clubs,restaurants, and of course the beach is 50 yards away from the front door. We tended to eat at a different restaurant each night and all the food we had was very nice.
Overall an enjoyable relaxing holiday we would stay here again because everything is on the door step.

Just returned from Rocas Blancas and would recommend anybody to stay here, though the accomodation is basic the apartments are spacious, clean and the staff superb (especially Jose who looks after the pool bar).
The location is slap bang in the middle of PDC, never any need to pay a taxi but also quiet enough at night for a decent sleep.
The apartments have no organised entertainment but you dont need it as there is plenty on your doorstep.
Eat at Pinnochios for the best food in PDC. Situated 50 yards as you come out the apartments on the right hand side.

The apartments are very spacious and cleaned at least 5 days out of 7. The staff are very, very helpful and really welcoming.
The pool bar staff are brilliant,location is perfect. Right across from the beach and right in the midst of the bars and restaurants yet suprisingly the apartments are quiet at night.
Would recommend the Rocas Blancas to anyone and I know I will be back at least a couple of times this year as will my friends.

If you leave the apartment and turn left, about 50 yards away there is a little Irish bar called the Bodhran. If you are Irish, stay away, there is only so many times you can listen to Danny Boy. Consider yourself at an Irish wedding...long after the band has packed up and Uncle Harry wants to carry on singing. Great for the first night, after that try line dancing.
