Is the SOUTH of GRAN CANARIA WARMER than the north?

No doubt. The South of Gran Canaria is warmer than the Northern part.
In the south, the climate remains consistently warm even in winter. 

Gran Canaria where to stay

Which part of Gran Canaria has the best weather?

The South West resorts of Gran Canaria, like Puerto Rico, Anfi del Mar, Puerto de Mogan, Taurito... are sheltered from the prevailing northerly wind and thus are usually the warmest.
The best part where to stay in Gran Canaria especially in winter is Puerto Rico: one of the most popular seaside resorts on the island.
The temperatures during the day in winter are between 20°C and 25°C, you can sunbathe comfortably and work on your tan.

Listed below you can see the offers for accommodation in the less windy area of Gran Canaria. Prices for 7 nights, per accommodation, NOT per person.

Gran canaria north or south?

If suggest you to stay in Gran Canaria northern part only in summer or in february (carnival time). You can stay in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria: the capital of the island.

I suggest staying in this cosmopolitan city in the summer months which enjoy a stable climate while in winter it is more cloudy and rainy than in the southern resorts. The prevailing wind is from the North East, so often rain heavy clouds will empty on the North of the island while the southern tip stays bathed in sunshine. 

It is also very touristy but if you are looking for the classic seaside resort in which to spend the winter months, it is better to stay in the sunniest area: in Puerto Rico. 

is the south of gran canaria warmer?

Las Canteras, the beach of Palmas, is more windy. Swimming is possible but the water is colder and the ocean is more wavy compared to the sheltered beaches of the South.

Largest carnival in canary islands

Las Palmas have the largest carnival in the world after Rio De Janeiro.

I would advise you to stay in Las Palmas at least for 3 nights in order to visit the historic centre and walking in the avenue that runs along Europe's most beautiful urban beach.
