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.

6th visit now and still love it
We once again returned to riu oliva beach knowing we would have another wonderful holiday, and it didnt disapoint. Check in was easy and smooth, on arrival we were sent down to dinner while our room was arranged. We had a lovely quiet room in the annex, nobody was next to us or above us during our stay so it was incredibly peaceful. The food as always was great with a good selection every day, we didn't tire of the food. Our room was cleaned well every day. The beach still is breathtaking, we wandered past the next riu hotel and found the beach to be much quieter and sat for ages watching the sea. The weather was cloudy for a few days so we walked into corralejo and had a look around. A bus is only about â¬1.20 each way. The beds were comfortable and clean. The free use of the safe is handy. You can buy a bottle of water then fill it up in the restaurants as you please. All in all another wonderful holiday at riu, and i have no doubt that we will return again soon.More
Olivia Beach Easter break
We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Olivia Beach. I cannot fault this hotel and for what we paid I think it was certainly excellent value for money. Check-in was efficient and quick. We were expecting a room in the annexe but ended up with a sea view room on the 5th floor. This was no disappointment and we had amazing views over the dunes and beach. The staff at this hotel cannot do enough for you wherever you are in the hotel. The bar staff were brilliant and extremely friendly especially Pedro and Luis. There was an excellent choice of food and we ate in the Asian restaurant and the Canarian restaurant too. They both need to be prebooked the day before but very much worth it. The food in the Asian restaurant was delicious. This particular evening when I had eaten loads, my partner and I walked along the moonlit beach where he then proposed to me!! The area around the pool gets really busy but obviously if you have young children then that's where you want to be. There are loads of sunbeds to choose from in many different areas and there were always plenty left in the afternoon on the rooftop terrace. The beach and surrounding area is amazing and the colour of the water is absolutely beautiful. The week we were there it was quite cloudy so we walked into town a few times and got a taxi back. Really enjoyed walking around Corralejo prom and harbour. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would go back tomorrow if work allowed! I am surprised it's only a 3 star as we could not fault it. More
Third visit in 12 months says it all
I have now be going to the Olivia since I found it in 2009, there have been times where standards seem to slip away but what attracts me back again is the truly amazing beach this hotel sits on. I could go into areas where improvements could and in some cases should be made, but as previously mentioned my 3rd visit in 12 months will suggest that I am satisfied with all on offer here. For those who are looking for a first visit then you wont go wrong at this hotel, lets start with the location yes remote but OMG this has to be one of the best beaches in all the Canary Islands and beyond, truly amazing soft talc sand that stretches as far as you can see well in to the dunes and a sea with a colour that would be top of any picture post card listing. Be mindful that there are some strong currents in certain parts, however flags fly informing you where its safer to swim. The hotel food, I never understand why some have issues, the choices are varied and should suit all tastes and diets. Full salad buffet so much choices, hot grill, the faster food elements, pasta dishes, roasts on an evening, sweets a plenty, fresh fruits, ice creams etc. etc. Never had a problem with the food with choice nor illness !! The hotel rooms are adequate again if you get a sea view then this will be a massive added benefit to your stay to wake up and look out over the ocean and dunes will take your breath away. Beds could be more comfortable but couldn't they in all hotels !! The cleanliness of this hotel surpasses any I have ever stayed in. The staff are continually cleaning all public areas, this place is spotless. There is a shower room by the pool for when you leave should you have to vacate your room well in advance of your flight back, again cleaned hourly and plenty of towels provided. If there is one area that needs some attention its the entertainment, the programme of events and shows never changes. If you are one for getting involved then first time around you may be entertained however after a few days it does become same old. There needs to be some new additions to what the programmes offers both in activities and shows, we all are aware that these shows are a little tongue in cheek but dance and mime almost every night is a little too much of the same throughout a week or two.. I would recommend this hotel if you love a beach holiday, good varied food, clean environment.. A trip to the town will cost you 6 / 7 euro by Taxi lots of bars and restaurants and other entertainment venues available ..More
Beautiful location, plenty to do and lots to eat
A real gem for the solo traveller - lots of people travelling alone, of all ages, from all parts of Europe. Friendly, hard-working animation team - wanting you to get involved, but not pushy. From Nordic walking in the dunes to rifle shooting there was plenty to do in the day. At night, a choice of either seeing a show or live music on most nights, together with a disco at which 20 year olds danced alongside 70 year olds. All inclusive is a real bonus as the hotel is away from the resort. Bar staff were really cheerful, as were the waiters and reception staff. The art was excellent - you paid by size of canvas - and the value for money of the tuition from the local artist was excellent. The location, in the middle of a national park, was spectacular. As it was away from the resort, people made full use of hotel facilities and made lots of friends. I was really fortunate to have a room overlooking the sea. Rooms ending in 44 or 43 have the best views, with 44 getting the morning sun. The 'village' of low rise buildings belonging to the hotel appeared newer, but was set back from the beach. The pool there however was more picturesque than the main pool. Lifeguards constantly on duty. Wifi needed to be paid for - available only in reception of the hotel - and also a very good signal on the dunes near the volleyball courts. This was offset though by the fact the safe was free. Taxis, complete with a map of set dates to parts of the island, were directly outside the hotel, but the bus into Corralejo was only 1 Euro 40 cents ( each way). Walking in is easier alongside the road than on the dunes, but the cross dunes route is amazing - you feel very remote. Food at the hotel was varied. The Canarian restaurant was the most intimate and had a lovely selection of specialty food. No surcharge, but needs booking at reception owing to limited space. There is also an Asian restaurant in the village part - this was okay, but I preferred the Canarian restaurant or the main restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday and will be returning. More
2nd time in three months and going again next week , lucky us!!!!!!
When we found this hotel in December last year we really did find a little peace of Heaven, we love it so much we go back again next week after only being home 3 weeks. The island itself is unique and so beautiful . We have never known such a beautiful beach and the colour of the sea takes your breath away. The hotel should be 5 star , the staff gave us a seaview which we paid and upgraded to and the view once again was amazing across the beach , sea and dunes and mountains amazing. The staff in the restaurant especially Marilis are amazing and the cleaning staff are so nice and work hard. Reception are so polite and always willing to help . I keep trying to work out why people find fault here and it deserves nothing less than a 5 out of 5, they must have their own insecurities to find fault in this amazing place . The value for money is second to none. The food is amazing with loads of choice. Don't hesitate book this great place. Someoe moaned about the WIFI not being in your room, we were in a room on the 7th floor and we run a business and it was slow but it was good enough to send e-mails and check internet so not sure why they couldn't get on the internet.More
