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 2 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.

Stayed as a couple for a week all inclusive end of Jan/beginning Feb, booked through Thompsons around Â£350 each including transfers. We booked a sea view (what a view!) and were given room 434. Check in around 8pm was fast and friendly, considering the amount of us arriving. We were pleased to hear the dining hall served until 9.30pm! The room included a little fridge and safe (at no cost unlike some hotels) and television. Beds were comfortable (2 singles pushed together); have a bad back so comfort is important to me. The room had a balcony with table and chairs. From this balcony if you look to the left you can see the magnificent dunes, beach and sea, look to the right, beautiful mountains. The selection of food outweighed expectations and the re stocking continual. The chefs and dining room staff were lovely. We tried the 2 specialty restaurants which you have to book the day before but preferred the food of the main dining hall overall. The friendly staff working in the bars in the evening are so good, you are not waiting for long. The entertainers mainly mime but what they lack in vocals more than make up with their enthusiasm! They are youngsters and give it their all. And, hey, surely we can entertain ourselves with good company! The pool and outdoor jacuzzi area was kept clean and warm. It was quite noticeable how much cleaning was always going on, all around the hotel, inside and out. Our room and balcony was cleaned thoroughly every day, beds made and towels changed if you left them on the floor. As the weather was so bad, we went out on 2 days, once getting the bus (around 1.50 euros) to Correlejo harbour and took the ferry to Isle of Lobos. If you like walking you'll have a lovely time walking from the south to the north of the island amongst the volcanic rocks and marshland. The island is uninhabited but there are some very old fishermans cottages on the south east of the island where you will find one open to serve lunch! We took a packed lunch but instead enjoyed paella and fish washed down with wine! We also did the Fuerteventura tour which is worth doing to see the island properly - beware if you don't like heights and narrow bendy roads! Our guide was brilliant (think her name was Monica). In all my life I have never visited the same place twice as this is a big world to see, but perhaps if sunshine could be guaranteed I would love to be able to swim in that sea and sunbathe/ read on that beautiful, beautiful beach and would not hesitate to stay again at Rui Olivia.More

The Hotel is situated in an Oasis in the Sand right on a spectacular beach with beautifully kept gardens and the whole complex exceptionally clean and tidy. Whilst the building is a little dated the accommodation in an apartment in the grounds was fine very spacious and clean. The staff are very friendly and the choice for dining is good with a large buffet style main restaurant and two speciality restaurants at no extra charge. The choice of food was very good with something to suit all tastes. Two negatives though the wifi is only available in the Reception Area and is not free, also the evenings can be very chilly in winter and the rooms do not have any heating.More
The good far outweighs the bad
So the hotel is a little tired.... No problem, it is impeccably clean the food is exactly the same good standard as every other all inclusive hotel we have stayed in and the staff are by far the friendliest and most hardworking bunch I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I recommend that you give it a go and ignore the nit picking reviewsMore
Value for money
Stayed as a couple for one week and for the Â£850 total we paid for the two of us all inclusive, it was a fantastic deal. The staff are lovely, very friendly, not one miserable face! Yes the hotel is dated but the location (if you don't mind being out on a limb) is fantastic - a beautiful beach, one of the best on the island in our opinion. I emailed before we went to ask for a south facing room in the main hotel, my request was noted but couldn't be guaranteed but they totally delivered and we had a fantastic view. Food was fine, you would have to be a very fussy eater to go hungry. Drinks were good. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel if you get a good deal. Our only gripe would be the entertainment, it was quite poor. There was live music in one of the bars but this catered for the older generation and we would like to have seen more contemporary music. Save your kisses for me and tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree just isn't our thing lol.More
Stayed here for one week as a couple, the hotel is a little dated but has everything you could need, it's right on the beach which is really beautiful, more than likely to get a sea view room, the lighting in the rooms isn't that great but has lots of storage, kept very clean and the bed is comfortable enough. You can get either a taxi or bus to town taxi is â¬6.40 on average and bus is â¬2 something for the two of us, and drops you right at the top of the strip where there are lots of shops, correljo is beautiful and has a beautiful harbour a must see. The food in the hotel was okay, lots of salad, not a lot of different fruits, pastas, burgers hotdogs, some fish, not a lot, meat was okay, quite fatty, usually had a joint of something pork usually breakfast was eggs, scrambled, fried and boiled, toast which you had to use the toast machine, sometimes a little wait, beans, bacon on somedays, and past rys, they had a selection of spreads and usually melon, apples, bananas, and oranges all very close to date. The drinks are very strong in the hotel, but were lovely, a lot of choice, cava was lovely, and can get bottles, there are a few bars to drink in, the bar at the apartments was the quietest, staff were lovely, manwell especially, there are two themed restaurants which were not the best, the Chinese was tasteless and the canarian was little choice and much the same as what is in the restaurant. Overall the hotel was quiet in February and has lots of space to go to loads of sun beds, you have to pay for ones on the beach, there are also bars on the beach, correljo is very windy but was warm in the day and quite cold in the evening, cheap and cheerful overall stay, just the food can do with improving.More
