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.

Great

Had a great stay here in 2015. The hotel is, simply put - a hotel. It's clean, it's friendly, has lots of restaurants, staff are efficient, food and drink was nice. It did its job, if you're expecting to be wined and dined and blown away by it, this isn't the place for you. We couldn't fault it however, we have been to the island a few times and so booked this for location, we knew what we were getting so knew what to expect. And the location is faultless, the beach is outstanding, so big, so quite and relaxing. Just get away from the doorstep of the hotel and you can find a spot that makes you feel like you have your own private little island, it's stunning. The dunes are captivating, just make sure you don't get too disorientated by them! Correlejo is fantastic, huge selections of restaurants and bars, from quite little gems to big busy bars, it has it all. We never ran out of places to visit or things to do. More

First visit to Fuerteventura

This was our 14th visit to a Riu Hotel and sadly this hotel was not up to Riu standard, it looks like it needs to be completely renovated to improve its run down appearance. However it was up to standard for service and cleanliness and this is why we like to stay with Rui. We did visit the other Rui hotel further along the beach and this was very much up to standard but it is not all inclusive only half board. So why is this Riu? you must be one of the market leaders in all inclusive are you changing your policy?More

NanuBucks,

Disappointed

Spent a week at this Riu hotel at the end of June, all I can say is I'm really surprised that the Riu chain have not picked up on all the bad points that people have raised, Iv stayed in many Riu hotels & always been highly satisfied, unfortunately I can't say the same for this stay, BAD POINTS Hotel rooms are not only old fashioned but shabby the carpet in our room 623 was actually threadbare in areas!!Towels were so washed out & worn thin, & bedding consisted of furry blankets & 1970's bedspreads! Not quite what you expect from a 4star Riu! The food in restaurants was just OK def not anywhere near to the standards I've had at other 4* Riu's, The entertainment was DIRE!! Worst I think I have ever seen anywhere! This needs sorting out big time as some people who pay for all inclusive hols intend to spend all their evenings in hotel, thankfully for me we ventured out into town, Last but not by Noway least the awful drain/sewage problem around the main pool, how anyone could spend their days laying there breathing in that acrid smell defies belief, you could actually taste it!! When I queried this with hotel staff they just shrugged their shoulders & said its ongoing problem!! The speciality restaurants were all still buffet style, would be so much better if they had waiter service, GOOD points And there are just a few, il reiterate what a lot of other people have said & that is that the STAFF & the BEACH which is truly amazing are this hotels saving grace, oh & the Cava is pretty good too! Ha ha! every single staff member was professional, helpful & friendly they are a credit to this hotel & I truly hope they get the recognition they deserve, More

Lisalon,

Shabby and not the normal Riu standard

Stayed here for 5 days from 2nd July until 7th as part of a two centre holiday,staying both here and the Riu Paraiso Lanzarote. We are a couple travelling with 8 month old baby and 16 year old, my mother and father in law. I booked direct with Riu as I have stayed with them before,this is a hotel that Thomson travel to though. I am part of their Riu class loyalty system and have always found them good. This hotel however,did not meet my expectations. Firstly, the check in was easy and quick and reception staff were great,although no one offered to take our bags with a 4 star all inclusive, this would usually be the norm. We arrived just before midnight as our flight was delayed a couple hours. No food or snacks available and we just caught the bar for a drink before midnight. We were given no water and on arrival at the room,there was no water there either and no where to get it from at that time of the night ( well the nightclub maybe, but not with the baby!) Our room was a family sized room in the annex, consisting of a double bedroom and separate large lounge area with two sofa beds.Great location as not far from the pool and restaurants. The room however was really, really dated. I dumped the cases on the bed and went straight to the toilet to be met by two big cockroaches on the bathroom floor. They scuttled away down a hole next to the bathroom door and they made numerous appearances over the 5 days. Air conditioning was limited to the bedroom only so my husband's 16 year old was very warm at night. We also had an ant problem..... I left my nappy bag on the dining room table and in the morning the bottle, baby snacks and even Sippy cup were covered in ants. I then kept everything in the fridge. Food was OK. Breakfast had a great selection.Numerous breads and pastries along with the usual cooked bits and pieces and plenty of fresh fruit and yogurt. Because there were two restaurants you could have meals in, we never found them to be too over crowded or busy, although we did normally go to breakfast quite early. Lunch and dinner was quite repetitive although there was plenty to eat if you didn't gorge on everything. You had the same stations every day with pizza, chips, burgers etc. Canarian potatoes with green and red mojo sauce (which were lovely) fresh fruit and yogurts. They had a cooked station that varied daily, items included a paella type, rabbit stew,beef stew etc they also had a daily roasted meat that a waiter would carve for you. They were generally very good. The cocktails in the bars were terrible. I stayed at the 4 plus star Riu Vallarta previously and they were all freshly made with separate ingredients.These were all pre mix and tasted terrible. The cava however was pretty good, I stuck to drinking that. Pool areas were great,although I only managed to get a sunbed once as I'm sure people were up at 5am reserving them. If you want a sunbed, I suggest getting up early! Location was great,the dunes really are impressive and a ten minute drive from Corralejo. We hired a car and did a day exploring the island. Plenty of parking at the hotel and all free. All in all, not what I expected from a Riu. After this stay, I went straight to the Riu Paraiso which was a whole different ball game. Both 4 stars but miles and miles apart. If you are booking with Thomson or First Choice,I would suggest paying slightly more and going long haul to the Dominican, Mexico or Cuba...all of which are a whole different standard ( I had free spirits in the room, free drinks stocked daily in the fridges,lobster and T bone steak cooked fresh on the gala dinner night - all at the 4 star hotel Riu Vallarta Mexico and I paid £800 for 14 nights!!) If you want to stay short haul,the Riu Paraiso is a million times better than the Oliva. I would say a whole star apart. Please check out my other review of second stay. More

3 stars and that's being generous!

We stayed here from the 8th until the 15th of June but only just got round to writing the review. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist and he told us to go to the bar to get a drink whilst he checked us into the room, we went to the room and it was lovely! We had a room near the front of the hotel overlooking the beach and the sea. We went for tea in the main restaurant and there was a bit of choice but not a great deal but we thought there may of been different things on different nights.......we were wrong, they had pretty much the same selection of food for the whole week we were there, we noticed that the hotel was mainly full of Germans and this is who they catered for. The breakfast wasn't any better with anemic bacon and hot dog sausages out of a tin! In the end we resorted to eating doughnuts and pastries. We went in the snack bar by the pool and the food was OK there but there were birds sitting next to the pizza and eating it and then people were going up and getting the slice the bird had been pecking at as they hadn't seen it. One of the nights we were there me and my fiancee went for tea in the main restaurant and picked what we were having, my fiancee had a couple of slices of steak, we were talking and eating and then half way through his second slice of steak my fiancee glanced at his food and noticed that his steak was hardly cooked! That night when we went back to the hotel room he said his stomach felt off and then he ran to the toilet and was being sick throwing up blood and raw meat for a good half an hour to an hour! After that we checked everything that we ate and didn't risk it if it looked a bit dodgy! We went over to the other restaurant where the apartments were and the food seemed to be cooked a bit better but it was the same selection. We chose the hotel because it was located on the beach and we thought we could go in the sea everyday.......we were wrong, the first day of our holiday the flag was yellow so we bought some snorkeling gear from the hotel shop and spent the day snorkeling which I loved because I had never done it before! I was excited to go snorkeling the rest of the week, the next day we got up and went on the balcony and the flag was red so we went to Corralejo which is the main town and it was alright. For the rest of the week the flag was red which meant we couldn't go into the sea at all! Someone even got swept out to sea and it took three life guards to save them! Half way through the week we hired a car for the day from a rent a car just down the street from the hotel and went to explore Feutorventura and it was amazing to see how they lived! We also went to El cotillo which was a little bay and is perfect for snorkeling!! The water is crystal clear so you can see everything in there! I just want to mention that the staff here are amazing and very friendly and they make sure you always have a drink! Its just a shame the hotel doesn't match the people who work in it! More
