This sprawling hotel is right next to an 11-kilometre sandy beach.
This tall hotel is right in the middle of Grandes Playas, Fuerteventura’s biggest sandy beach. Corralejo’s restaurants and bars are just 15 minutes away by bus – it stops just outside the gates.
The hotel has a pair of pools that both come with their own snack bars. As for dining, the Canarian and Asian restaurants are supported by weekly theme nights at the two main buffet places.

2 outdoor pools
The pool scene gets the thumbs up here. The main one comes up pretty big while the other is a curvy number surrounded by glossy palms. Not only that but there's even a whirlpool bath thrown in the scene. Heated in winter at the manager's discretion.
If you enjoy art then look no further. Come along to the art workshops, part of the activities programme held several times a week.

This hotel is really good value. Everything works. No queues for beds, drinks or dining room. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and cleaning is constant and thorough. Food was plentiful and varied and the usual Riu serve yourself for almost everything worked extremely well for us. We stayed poolside on the 3rd floor of the older hotel block. This gave us a view to die for, over miles of soft golden sand and beautiful sea. We walked and walkedâ¦just being there lifted the spiritsâ¦then back for a cava. Our room was well fitted with a renovated bathroom. The furniture was classic Spain, but probably a little dark for some. We felt very much at home. Other reviews mentioned the annexâ¦a poor name for what turned out to be modern and campus- like with a number of low rise apartment blocks surrounding itsâ own island pool and large dining room. Rooms here are larger and more modern, but you give up the view. Our fellow guests split German-UK with a smattering of others. The staff handled the language issues calmly and professionally. It is not a glamourous hotel ..it reminded me of my treasured old Volvoâ¦.past itsâ best, but still many miles under the bonnet. It is 6euro from the main town by taxiâ¦ie a bit out of it. We loved it for that.More
Stay in Annex family room
We stayed in room 3119, a family annex double room located the furthest away from most. This gave us a nice quiet room with a sunny south facing terrace and a more shady westbound terrace turning outward to a beautiful garden with grass and palm trees and a nice desert view where we spent a lot of afternoons when our kid was napping. The rooms (west facing especially) are cold in the mornings and evenings and the tile floors are especially cold, so bring some thick socks for this time of year and if someone needs to sleep in the living room, get extra blankets or wear a lot of clothes. Water is warm and plentiful, hair drier cold and crappy, so bring your own. The apartment is worn and is strangely filled to the brim with wooden furniture to a degree where the door to the bedroom couldn't even be opened more than half. The rooms are clean and functioning so we found the aging to be no big deal. The TV is old school, so no HDMI or any other fancy stuff for your Chromecast/PC viewing pleasures. There are technically three pool areas: A big area in the main hotel with a heated small kids pool and a larger cold pool. In the Annex there is a large cold pool. By the playground there is supposed to be a small kids pool, but it was drained the time we were there. All inclusive is OK. The drinks are plentiful. The food is so-so. After a week you'll be tired of the same food all the time, and it's not really quality. Cold bread for your hamburger, overcooked vegetables and so on. There is a lot to choose from though and the italian pizza/pasta station was pretty good. You can eat dinner three different places and breakfast and lunch in two different places. The clientel is probably 80% germans, so maybe that's why there were a massive amount of sausages and ham to choose from at all meals :-) Spekaing of germans all kid activities are mainly in German so other nationalities' kids won't have too much fun there. The staff is excellent. Very helpful, smiling and are running a smooth sailing hotel. A small bus (1.8 euro) or taxi (6-7 euro) will take you to Corralejo, where there is a few shops and a nice harbor area should you be inclined to dodge the all inclusive buffet for a meal or two. The beach by the hotel is huge and you can have a large area for yourself. It is also one of the prettiest I have seen with the best fine white sand and most turquoise water. It easily matches some of the caribbean beaches I have been on. It was quite windy when we were there so there were red flags for 6 out of the 7 days we were there. All in all March was a bit too cold for my taste for a bathing holiday, but in the summer this would be a great place to be.More

This hotel stands in a stunning position on the beach but away from hustle and bustle. Staff are lovely, always very friendly. Food was very good although hot breakfast choice was a bit limited but loads of choice in everything else. Hotel is a little tired looking but the enviable position makes up for that. Hotel was very clean would definitely go back. It would be nice to have wi fi in room you can buy a ticket in reception for 1 hr and upwards but you have to stay in reception to use it.More

Great value hotel
Just returned from this hotel and can recommend as a great value holiday. As mentioned by others it's a little dated but in very good condition. It's spotlessly clean, the rooms are comfortable and the bathroom was immaculate. Food does become a bit repetitive but if you try to stick to one dish per course instead of a little bit of everything you could eat differently every evening. The quality is as good as any we've been to in the Canaries or Mediterranean. The wine was pleasant and there's cava available at the bars. Pool areas are very well kept and the views are stunning. The staff is the hotel's greatest asset, pleasant and curteous without exception. We'll definitely consider returning here if we come back to Fuerteventura.More
