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.

Weather not as expected!!
Unseasonal weather for January but an enjoyable time all the same, it's laways a pleasure to return to this hotel with it's second to none location on Corralejo's Oliva beach.We have reurned here 3 times in short succession and have had a relaxing time eacj visit. There is plenty to do in the daytime for adults and children alike and you can join in or chill out as you feel. The food is always hot and varied and the themed restuarants are worht trying.More

Great holiday -stunning beaches !
Stayed at this hotel for 1 week. Ist night we had a very noisy room on the 1st floor just above the bar in the main hotel. We went to reception & they changed the room straight away we were put on th 7th floor we had paid for a seaview & the view was brilliant, & soo much quieter. It is very clean the rooms, rest rooms, restaurants,& the whole hotel. They also put fresh food out all of the time, plenty of choices. Help yourself food & drinks. They will also serve at the bar if needed. Entertainment, various but if you want a quiet drink plenty of places to sit. Some nights are very good others, depends on your taste, but the enterainment team work & try very hard. The beaches are fab, but watch out after the main beach by the hotel there is a nudist beach !! not very good if you have a family as it is only 5 mins away from your hotel did not see any signs for this. Beware it is not a good view ! Overall the hotel is very good. But the swimming pools are very cold ! Would go again. Only down side no free wifi anywhere in the hotel.More

Comfortable but food let it diwn
My partner and I stayed for one week at Club Riu. We were a little shocked on arrival at how ordinary it looked! We were expecting a grand hotel with an imposing entrance. Oh well we thought, it is only a three star. When we checked in we were told to go get a drink whilst they got our keys together. They snapped an all inclusive band on our wrists and off we went. Cocktails! I asked the man at the bar for a Miami Vice. Blank look. Strawberry Margherita? Nothing. Sex on the Beach? Yes he'd heard of that. He poured various cordials and house alcohol together and there was my drink. In a plastic tumbler. Oh well here goes. Eughhh! It was horrible! Far too strong and just disgusting. So I left it. On arriving in our room (in the main building) I had to stifle a little moan when I seen the decor. It was HORRIBLE. I don't know if this is because I am a graphic designer and perhaps it bothered me more than most but it was really really bad. Dark green carpet, khaki green ceiling, dark brown wooden furniture and dark red bed covers. Oh it was vile. To make matters worse it was two single beds pushed together. However at least the balcony had a wonderful view of the pool and beach. The pool area was nice. We did like that but it was nigh impossible to get a subbed. The Germans were up at the crack of dawn claiming them. The food was mediocre. I convinced myself the first couple of nights that it was fine. Really. But it was always lukewarm. They even had microwaves. They knew the food was cold! That's because they didn't keep it warm. It was just placed in dishes and that was that. Hot food cools unless kept warm. The soup was lovely. I did like that. But the mains, it was always pork, tasteless pasta some vegetable conjunction with loads of cabbage and cheap pizzas that they added cheese and toppings too. They have put me off burgers too. I had one for about 3 days. Each day it was cold, watery, soggy like they'd all been boiled. On the third day I got quite ill and felt sick. I never was sick but I couldn't eat much for a couple of days and slept loads. Since then I couldn't look at another burger. The entertainment was good! That's a plus. My partner loved the casino night. I loved the Lennon and McCartney tribute. They were wonderful. Came out in the St Peppers outfits towards the end singing their later songs. Had the accents and the hair. One the best bits of the holiday for me. If you aren't fussy and don't mind mediocre warm food and bad decor then maybe you'll like this hotel. More

We went here from the 13th June for a week and had a fabulous time! The beach is beautiful and we had real fun playing in the waves. Around the pool were plenty of sunbeds and the pool was very refreshing! The food was plentiful and nice and the self serve wine and beer was very handy and convinient. We thought it really was value for money and perfect for a week away in the sun. If you are looking for a quiet room, id advise to stay in the annex.... we were in the main hotel as requested and it was quite noisy from the bar below, but ear plugs fixed that for us! Would definitely recommend that you go into Corralejo as there are lots of bars and nice places to eat.. along with your standard souvenier shops. There are also so very lovely beaches there too and plenty of places to sit with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. I would go back here tomorrow.. you get what you pay for... its more a 3 star than a 4.. but the staff are fantastic.. the rooms are clean and have everything you need... Pedro at the downstairs bar was very good and made sure our glasses were never empty!!! Don't listen to the negative comments.... this place is lovely.More

Stayed here for our third time 23 May for 2 weeks. We do like this place, the location is excellent, beautiful beaches etc. The staff are excellent and we emailed ahead of our vacation to request an annexe room in the same area as before, we got a room just next door but one to our previous stay. I was also given a lovely flower by reception when we checked in, nice touch. We have absolutely no complaints about the food, if you can't find something you like you must be very fussy! And the drinks are very good quality, if not a little too strong at times. Love the cava. The hotel is dated in parts I agree but it is spotless, the cleaners work hard to keep it that way. The sun beds could do with a good scrub though to be honest some of them were really dirty. Now here comes our one and only bad bit sunbed reserving! Some people are just unbelievable, towels, bags, hats, books etc. at ridiculously early hours of the morning. We were told that some put their towels out at 4am, what the...... Come on hotel management you need to grow some and remove all belongings left out before a certain time, we go on holiday to relax and if we want to have a lie in in the morning we don't expect to have to wander around the complex looking for 2 available sunbeds. We noticed that some of these selfish so n so's didn't even sit on the beds they had reserved for 90% of the time, they were on the beach, round the bar or even off out for the day. Having said all of that we will return as they have some great deals and we do like it. Coralejo is a lovely place with lots of shops, cafes etc. And there is a little English owned bar 'The Phoenix' where you can chill, have a few drinks, watch TV and use the free wi-fi.More
