The Barcelo Corralejo Bay is an adults-only retreat with a great spa and a pair of pools. It's in a fantastic location, too - the bars and restaurants in the town centre are within arm's reach, and the sandy beach is a few minutes' stroll away.
The adults-only Barcelo Corralejo Bay is nestled in the heart of Corralejo. You’ve got shops, bars and restaurants on your doorstep, and a sandy beach just a couple of minutes’ walk away. Better still, the hotel is surrounded by waxy palms and tropical shrubs, which give things a peaceful, private feel.
The greenery continues out by the swimming pools. There are two of them, and they’re shaded by glossy vines that line up along the water’s edge. Sunbeds and parasols dot the surrounding terrace, and there’s a bar out here, that’s well-stocked with drinks and snacks.
Elsewhere, you’ve got a tranquil spa that’s perfect for unwinding. Among the facilities on offer are a string of showers with different aromas, colours and music, a toning pool and a bubbling hot tub. Plus, you can enjoy treatments like a full body massage.
Open Monday to Sunday, this modern spa has a fitness area and four individual treatment rooms. You'll find a hydrotherapy bath and two double rooms ideal for massages. There are water jets, hydro-massage seats, water cascades and swan neck showers. Plus a Turkish bath, steam room, overhead shower, Jacuzzi®, solarium and a Finnish sauna.
For buffet breakfast and dinner which you can enjoy indoors, or on the terrace. This place also has show cooking where you can watch dishes being prepared right in front of you. Come the evening, there's a dress code, it's long trousers for gentlemen.
I am staying there right now. Into my second week here, so I have got a good feel for the place. We booked it because it is child free. It certainly is child free, there are quite a number of older residents, but that's fine. It is lovely and quiet.
The breakfast is nice, if not the same every day... We have had dinner here twice now and I have to say it is pretty good. They have a trouser only rule for men, but don't enforce it at all. Which irritated me the first night, because I was getting sweaty, and there were people in shorts and vests! If you have a rule you should stick to it, or why have the rule...
The pool is nice and refreshing. The only problem we found was all the smokers, and there were a lot. There was a constant fug in the air, and people are not very considerate at all. But apart from that it is great. Some people reserve their sun loungers bang on the opening hour, but there really is no need, there are loads of them.
We booked a sea view, but as has been said many many times on here, they were overbooked so we got upgraded. Kind of glad we did, nice room, and the sea view would be rubbish.
All the staff are first class, very helpful and always smiling.
Location is excellent - main bit of town is only a pleasant 10 minutes away. We will definitely stay here again.More
A great hotel and location
An adult only hotel which is what we wanted and it was great. All the rooms are great but we stayed on the second floor (recommended) in room 2215 with a view of the pools from our balcony (as opposed to a room facing the roads) which was excellent. The buffet style food in the restaurant was brilliant with lots of choices for different tastes. The service is second to none and they can't do enough to make you happy.
The location was very good for us as we are not into sun bathing around the pool or on the numerous little cove beaches and there are walks into the main village/town where you can wander around a multitude of restaurants and bars and shops and around the area in general. The closest beach is literally 2 minutes walk and the beach follows the walk into town with little coves jutting in and out which is nicer than one large beach. Sit at one of the beach side bars and relax with a drink and/or a meal. We stayed half board so as we could sample the local food for lunch at the other venues mentioned.
The weather was an average about 30C but with lovely constant breezes coming from the nearby African coast (only 64 miles away) so you were not uncomfortable.
The entertainment in the hotel in the evening was very good, especially the jazz quartet with Luis the saxophonist who was brilliant, so much so that I asked him for a CD which I was prepared to pay for but he gave it to me for free as he appreciated our enjoyment of the quartet so much.
To sum up, a fantastic weeks holiday and one that will remain in our thoughts for quite a while I feel sure - and yes, we would go back again and probably will. You will love it.More

Barcelo Corraljo Bay
Excellent hotel, well located , although if you are driving there yourself get good instructions as it can be difficult to find due to the one-way systems. Food good, pools good staff freindly and helpful. Near enough to walk easily to port with restaurants and bars, town however is a bit tatty.More

A peaceful relaxing hotel
Had booked a week's stay but due to emergency at home, we had to leave after 3 days. The Reception staff were so kind and helpful to us, especially Mati. We will definitely return and would recommend.More
