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.

we will be going back....
Stayed 19th Nov-3 Dec. Unfortunately, there was completely freakishly bad weather, a lot of rain that is uncharacteristic. One of the main reasons to go to Oliva beach is that fantastic beach which we didn't get to as much as we would have liked, The beach is textile in front of the hotel, and naturist (nudist) a couple of hundred yards to the right (looking at the sea). Sun beds are 3 euros each and another 3 for an umbrella. At 9 euros a day can mount up a lot. If you are on a budget, invest in a wind break from the local shop, or take a beach tent type shelter (it can get very windy). Or, if you get to the beach early, the naturist section has stone bunkers that have been built over years and you can occupy one of them, as my partner and I did on our trips to the beach. We stayed in the annex, the rooms are spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Food is good, varied and plentiful. there are two themed restaurants, one Canarian, the other Chinese, both are well worth a visit. They have to be booked at reception the day prior. Hotel staff are polite and very friendly. They seemed to pull all the stops out to entertain because it was bad weather and went the extra mile. If you want a relaxing beach holiday, I don't believe there is anywhere better in the world! It is fantastic value and we had a wonderful stay despite the rain. It was our third visit, we will be going again. EnfysMore
My Annual trip to Riu Oliva Beach
What can I say, can't beat this hotel for location, friendly staff, cleanliness and exceptional Animation team. I keep coming back as I travel on my own, I feel safe coming here, I adore the beach and just have to step outside the hotel garden to be there. Many of the staff remember me now, its like Im visiting my friends when I visit. Some useful pointers, even though it is all inclusive you have to pay for Wi-fi - I paid â¬20 for 7 days this time, You can purchase by the hour, day etc. I think its â¬2 per hour, not sure of the other amounts for a day, or 3 days etc. You get a receipt from the wi-fi machine, its a good idea to take a photograph of your receipt which has your user name and password on it so if you did loose it at least you can still get access. It only lets one device connect at a time, also I had a couple of issues when using it and found I had to logoff the site to resolve them,, the logoff ip address is also on your receipt. Someone mentioned you have to pay for water now, you can get still water from the drinks machines around the hotel, I just took a small water bottle with me and re-filled it when necessary. The bus to Corralejo is â¬1.40 each way and only takes about 10 mins (they don't always arrive on time, but do arrive eventually!), very handy when loaded up with shopping, otherwise on a nice day the walk along the beach is spectacular but will take you 1.5 - 2 hours. If you enjoy activity whilst on holiday there are plenty of exersise classes, gentle stretching and aqua gym in the morning, body toning, step, Zumba etc in the afternoon, so don't forget your trainers! As other reviewers have also mentioned, I rate this hotel against others I visit, and even though I visited a 5 star hotel in Turkey I prefer this hotel by far, don't expect it to be 5 star standard, its only 3 star but as I said what is great about this hotel is the location, the staff and the cleanliness. Already booked to return March 2015 - looking forward to it.More

The weather during my stay wasn't the greatest,and this meant that you were stuck in the hotel,which although dated the staff were very friendly. The negatives are there was many older Germans who seemed to think queuing was for suckers,I also played dodgems where they walk right into you,now good manners cost nothing but a kick in choonies hurts,thats how I was brought up,met some great people of all nationalities who were of same opinion,I would advise anyone who wants nightlife looks elsewhere,the entertainment consisted of adults dressed in nappies bouncing up and down in space hoppers,thought someone had spiked my beer....More
Great Great Fun and Great value
Booked a late break for a bit of pre Xmas sun at an all-inclusive price that couldn't be beaten. Expected to make comparisons to the Grand Palace on Gran Canaria but hey that would have been at least twice the price. Local brand spirits and pretty weakish wine but the beer on help yourself tap was fine. Food in the main hotel buffet was a bit school dinnerish and so we ate in the themed restaurants (still buffet) for six out of seven nights. Staff superb other than a couple of front of house staff that are the subject of a complaint to Riu so can't say more. The entertainment in the evening was a scream and very un-PC run by the animation team. So what if it was amateurish , it was FUN. Weather could have been better as others have said but the Paella and Sangria lunch event was brilliant. For the money would return in a heart beat. Last in Corralejo 12 years ago (7-8 Euro taxi ride) and time had not been kind and it was a bit of a dump. Beach at the hotel was spectacular as everyone has said.More

Good except for dire weather...
This has been our fifth (I think) stay at the Oliva Beach and as usual lived up to our expectations. good facilities, friendly staff, very good selection of food, bars well staffed, and clean rooms. It must be said that the Hotel and Annex are in need of refurbishment, but on saying that it is very well maintained. The Riu Oliva Beach is sited on the beach, which caters for clothed and un clothed people (I used to be one of the un-clothed but since I've turned seventy my body has taken a turn for the worse !!!!) The Oliva Beach has two specialised restaurants, which must be booked at reception, Chinese and Canarian (both part of the all-inclusive deal). Lot's of stuff for the kids, but not sure what as I avoid them like the Plague! Wi-fi i available in the reception area only, but at a price,(2 euro an hour), disappionted that it is a pay facility.We started our holiday on the 19th of November for two weeks....and the weather was awful, driving rain, heavy winds.....I am thinking of suing God. But other than that it was perfect. there is nothing outside the site except one Supermarket. To do serious shopping one must travel to Corralejo, about 8 euro's by taxi or go by bus.More
