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.

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.

Stayed at this hotel for a week in May this year with my partner. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We flew with Thomson and got to the hotel around 9.15pm, even though there was half a coach of people to check in it was done very smoothly. We were given our key, towel cards and advised to drop luggage off and then go to dinner. This we did, the food considering the restaurant was closing in 30 mins was delicious, the roast pork was fresh out the oven and carved infront of you. With regards the room, it was slightly dated, but it was spotless, as was the bathroom. We were on the second floor in the main hotel, on the side that the swimming pool was on. The view from the balcony was lovely. Only one thing that would of been nice, a lamp on the balcony as at night it can get rather dark. Getting a lounger was fine, but if you had a particular spot that you liked, then its best to get up really early to get this. The area where we liked was on the sun terrace, above the swimming pool, this area tended to be popular, so it was a 6am towel drop - that may sound early, but each day it was the same group of people at 6am putting their towels out. By 7.30am there would be no beds left in this area. Food at the hotel was really nice and plentiful, always lots of choice at each meal time. Also tried the Mandarin Restaurant, which is chinese themed and delicious, would definitely recommend you reserve here on your stay. Drinks were also of good value, branded softs (Coca Cola, Sprite etc) and beer (Amstel), the wine was also good, as was the cava, which is something I have never experienced on an all inclusive before. Spirits & cocktails were also very good. Entertainment: In the day there was plenty to do depending on what you like, there was water aerobics of some sort every morning. In the evening, there was a main entertainment area in hotel, can't really comment as only saw the acts whilst on way back to room. In the little bar in the hotel (with small dance floor) there was usually a music act on, these were really good and the atmosphere in here was great. All nationalities getting on today. Location of the hotel was beautiful, surrounded by sand dunes, it was a real area of natural beauty. All I can say is that the week went way too quickly, next time I would definitely book for longer, I think that this is a view shared by many of the other guests we talked to, as most had been on multiple visits to the hotel.More

I booked this holiday for 14 including 3 children in the group, it was my 40th wedding anniversary. I was a bit apprehensive as had a lot of stress with the booking through Thomsons but I needed not worry as the hotel was lovely. We were in the annex part of it, the rooms are spotlessly clean and of a good size. Staff are very helpful. Food is of a good quality and drinks are ok although I found the mixers were very sweet had to ask for soda with a dash of cola. There is entertainment on although found the layout of this particular room not very good, very long room with seating in rows so you feel your at the pictures if you know what I mean. They have a disco that adult can go to but this was only opened certain days of the week. Also there is what you could describe as a pub with small dance floor which we did use but on a Friday evening they didn't put any entertainment on, which found strange. This is a very large hotel and the grounds are kept lovely. Regarding pool towels if you are in the annex you might not get these as they are for the main hotel but I asked and the manager gave us them, so ask before you go. The beach is lovely, I'm not a beach person but my friends are and loved it as did my grandchildren and my friends grandson. I honestly can't fault this hotel other than maybe the furniture is a bit tired in the rooms but that is all. It is worth a visit.More
Fab hotel in a beautiful location
We stayed at Riu Oliva for 11 nights from 3rd June 2017 and we had the most lovely time! The staff made a great first impression, welcoming us and promptly checking everyone in. We arrived at the hotel at just after 10pm (which is when dinner finishes) but they laid on some food for us all which was fab. Wasn't sure what to expect of the hotel and/or hotel room due to reviews saying how it is "dated" but I genuinely had no complaints and thought it was all fine! We had a first floor room with sea view which was lush. Wifi was free and could be used throughout hotel: lobby, pools, entertainment hall (and if you're on floor 1, the wifi can be used in your room!) All inclusive is until 12am, however when the 'disco' room is open (downstairs) - you can get drinks until 2am. Lots of different drinks available throughout the day - amstel on tap and self-serve juices, fizzy and water. Food is such good quality. Yeah, you get some repetitive foods that are there everyday including pizza and pasta (which are both amazing may I add?!) but the pre-prepared salads and the 'main' food is changed daily and is really good. Mandarin restaurant was lovely and made you feel like you were 'going out for dinner' outside of the hotel as they seat you and bring drinks to you. We unfortunately did not manage to try the Canarian restaurant, however, we heard this was lovely too. All staff were really friendly and worked v hard and there was lots going on throughout the day and evening - for both kids and adults. Evening entertainment was okay and was interpreted in Spanish, German and (slightly) in English. There are a few different bars which are open till late too. All in all a really lovely hotel, I cannot think of one fault for the hotel and it is in the most beautiful location. We walked to Corralejo town alongside the beach which did take ages!!! but it was a lovely walk. Taxi back costed us around 6 euros and was less than 10 min drive away. There are also lovely sand dune walks too. We really enjoyed our stay at Oliva Beach Hotel and would 100% return again and recommend to anyone thinking of going! :-)More
Just been to the Clubhotel riu oliva beach resort, near corralejo. Stayed 11 nights all inclusive, and found it good value. It does cater for the german tourist, but it didn't bother us. Two points to note though; Be prepared to find and put your towels out early on sunbeds, each morning the majority of them had gone by 8 am. Do ask for a room not overlooking pool/ bar areas in main block, they were very noisey. The hotel provided plenty of food, and branded drinks, which were ok. The staff were polite, and couldnt do enough for you. The place was spotlessly clean, maid made beds and fresh towels each day. What more do you want from a holiday at this price? It appears some people find fault too easily, being a very well travelled person, i would recommend. Nice hotel on fantastic beach.enough said.More
