ClubHotel Riu Oliva Beach Resort  

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.

No Food Bugs /// Beware The Sea !!

Lets get some facts down re the comments on Food issues / food poisoning etc. Total hogwash !! I have just returned Saturday 22 August after a two week stay. I didn't come across anyone who had suffered any illness due to poor food hygiene. I say hogwash as everyday without fail the whole entertainment and management team eat in the same restaurant, eat the same food as the clients, if there was any issues around food hygiene I am sure they would not be sat eating in there. For those who say the food is rubbish I am totally astounded the choice is wide and varied, large Salad bar and for both Vegetarians and meat eaters from Grills / meats / Fish / mix bean dishes/ pastas / roast meats / steaks / the usual burger / hotdog areas/ local specialist dining / Asian restaurant / sweets ice creams / variety of cakes / pastries and son on. Some say limited choice absolutely ridiculous !! There are no food bugs here whatsoever. Those who suffer appears to be the same people who drink beers / wines / cocktails and spirits throughout the day eat the pool snack food which is the burger bar fan club, pile on the chips and then allow themselves bowl filled with ice creams choc sauce etc. Then stay in the sun until they turn lobster red and then blame the food !! Equally those who allow their children to drink fizzy pop like its going out of fashion and again eat a staple diet of chips burgers and ice cream is it any wonder they become ill !! Now a more serious problem on my 2 nd day I witnessed the very sad tragic event of a young Englishman drowning after over an hour of the lifeguards on the beach trying to revive him sadly he lost his life. I know people in the town and during my first week along this coast there were another 2 deaths through drowning. The beach is beautiful and the lifeguards who patrol it were vigilant , however there are in the region of 5 / 6 guards patrolling, it is impossible for them to watch 100's of people over such a large coast line. They do show flags Red being the one to watch for, if this is flying the answer is simple don't go in the water as many still do even with children on inflatables !! The guards blow whistles and re direct people who risk themselves however one 18 year old English guy who thought he knew better and having being told to stay away from the red zone decided to punch one of the guards , unbelievable.. !! There are sections that will fly either yellow or green these are safer bathing areas but be aware this is the Atlantic and whilst the sea is beautiful and very refreshing the waves are strong I would suggest don't go above waist deep, you will still have waves coming over you. I don't wish to be a kill joy however its important you know that this sea can be, as I witnessed unforgiving.. !!! There is a breeze but very welcoming, don't assume you wont burn as again the wind is deceiving !! Plenty of water is a simple way to remain hydrated during the day and pop beer etc on eve will help with avoiding stomach upsets. sorry to be parental but its basics that appear some have a need to know !! Ok the hotel may need some paint here and there but in all honesty are you going to spend hours in your room looking at the décor !! Its all very clean in all areas which is the main thing.. For evenings out a taxi from hotel to the town will cost about 7 euros. If you like simple basic entertainment and wish to join in then try , The Talk of the Town run by Dave and Tracy who have been there for 20 years, they can give you advice and are very welcoming, some live music, quiz and if you like some karaoke. They keep a lovely Guiness and offer basic English food. Or the 7 pints, some light family entertainment on Monday and Weds (toned down drag show) ok for kids nothing too daring !! live band other evenings.. On the whole this as many say lovely location, for some isolated but there are options for all tastes. Don't worry about the Food or Bugs, as there aren't any hygiene issues. Stay safe in the sea and only go where the guards show you its safe to do so. They speak English so if unsure ask..More

August 2015 summer break

Lovely summer holiday Rooms are old fashioned as dark furniture, but had everything we needed. Currents at beach strong and red flag 9/10 days we stayed, we were warned by rep on coach to resort to respect red flags and advice of lifeguards as were dangerous tides, number of people swimming anyway. Normal problem of towels reserving loungers nearest to pool all day but we did find places to sit when wanted. Entertainment team worked hard happy to leave you alone if didn't participate but would have been good in such a large place to have some different external music acts in evenings. We were limited in food choices as vegetarian. Hotel and reps encouraged people to refill water bottles from water dispensers but this is really unhygienic idea.We didn't experience any stomach problems. Staff all very helpful and keen to please. Great trips to Oasis Zoo and Lanzarote volcano experience.More

Fantastic Holiday...well worth a visit

Just returned from an amazing week at this hotel. I am honestly shocked by the terrible reviews and had to check twice if it was the same hotel!! Yes the rooms are slightly dated but they are cleaned to such a high standard and who really goes on holiday to stay in the room? All staff were very welcoming and more then happy to help. The manager always seemed to be on hand and checking everything was ok. The rep Abbie was excellent, we requested a new bed as ours was too hard and we had a new one within an hour or two! There was plenty of choice with drinks. You could help yourself to soft drinks from the machine,beer, wine in the restaurants ice cubes and lemon slices.. Which avoided having to queue. The food was of an excellent standard and there was so much choice. All the utensils were regularly changed and food was a good temperature. You must try the Oriental food during your visit, it's the best I've ever had! You had to pay €3 for a sunbed on the beach but this seems the norm for each hotel there. The transfers were quick and easy and check in and out was very fast! I don't often go to the same destination twice but I will be returning next summer. More

Wouldn't return.

Very Disappointed with this hotel.We stayed in the annex apartments which were ok really if you are booking 3*, could do with upgrading.Stayed at Riu hotels before and loved them so much that we always have tried to stay with that chain.This hotel has made me re-think my choose in future.The hotels facilities were very inadequate for the size of the place.We were never able to sit or sunbath around any of the two pools (towels would go on them from 12pm so if your not close you've no chance).So had to go to the beach where you cant take food or drinks so you have to buy them there and also pay for the sunbeds and parasols.If you need the loo you have a long walk back to the hotel as there are no facilities on the beach.The beach is beautiful but the sea is very dangerous as me and my friend found out.There are plenty of life guards but my advise is don't go and deeper than your waist.The two main restaurants are very busy but the food was ok.We had to stand up one day to eat our lunch by the pool as there were never any free tables because the sunbeds were all full that people were turning the tables and chairs in to sunbeds.The evening entertainment room is horrendous, you sit in rows of four with hardly any tables to put a drink and the music is too loud but the animation is to quite to hear what's going on.You pay for wifi, 20 euros for a week and you still cant use it.Its rubbish nothing connects.No water is supplied which is very unusual for Riu.If you're not good with walking and stairs stay away.This could be such a beautiful place if there was another couple of pools and a better entertainment area.To busy for me! I need a holiday!!.The staff are hard working and try but its just to packed.More
