A guide to Best Hotels in Corralejo

With understated, low-rise buildings and a rugged natural beauty, holidays to Corralejo bring an intoxicating blend of old-world charm, elegant beaches, and relatively bijou resorts. For a totally blissed-out, secluded retreat, the Hesperia Bristol Playa Aparthotel is a lovely spot with jaw-dropping mountain and ocean views. If you’re seeking pure luxury by the beach, the five-star Riu Palace Tres Islas, with its gourmet restaurant and sea view pools, is right on the money.

Riu Oliva Beach Hotel

Situated where the Grandes Playas sand dunes meet the turquoise ocean, this award-winning beach resort has everything for an unforgettable stay. Whether you want to chill out, bask in the gardens or get active, you’ll find something here. From the art and fitness programs to the RiuLand Kids’ club, the activities are plentiful. There are two pools including two for kids, live music, a nightclub, and a variety of restaurants to explore.

Suite Hotel Atlantis Fuerteventura Resort

This delightfully quaint property has had a cheeky makeover recently, and it looks impeccable. The six sculpted pools are inviting, and the beach, just 50 metres away, is so picturesque they do fashion shoots on it. If you’re travelling without kids, you can upgrade to the Premium Club option where you’ll have private access to a buffet restaurant, lounge, and two pools. Corralejo centre is a 10-minute walk away if you can bring yourself to leave.

Labranda Hotel Bahía de Lobos

With a cracking pool area and lush green gardens, this hotel is the perfect home from home. That is, of course, if your home has two massive pools, a tennis court and a gym. There are themed nights at one of the two restaurants, and live shows are laid on in the clubhouse come the evening. Baku Water Park is close-by, there’s a beautiful sandy beach 600 metres away, and a variety of shops opposite.

Riu Palace Tres Islas

If you’re after an indulgent beach escape with all the trappings of five-star living, you’re in the right place. As if the palm trees and plum beachfront location aren’t enough, there are two sea-view pools – complete with poolside tapas bars – a chic spa, and a gourmet a la carte eatery. There’s a mini-club for the kids, and the evening entertainment offers everything from cabaret performances to piano music.

Barceló Corralejo Bay

Located in the heart of town, this adults-only hotel feels like your own piece of paradise. It’s quiet, private, surrounded by greenery, and has two inviting pools. The spa facilities are excellent but if you want to shift up a gear, there’s tennis, scuba-diving and aqua gym on tap. There are a couple of bars and restaurants on the property but all the local action is right on your doorstep if you want to venture further.

Barceló Corralejo Sands

This is a beautiful new hotel in a perfect spot just a five-minutes walk from the beach. The pool is big and lined by palm trees, there are massages on the menu at the spa, and there’s a buffet restaurant too. The kids have their own pool, and there are water sports on the beach. The famous dunes are a short drive away, and everything Corralejo town has to offer is a short stroll away.

Arena Beach

Moments from the dunes and five-minutes to the beach, this modern beach-chic hotel is blessed with two big pools, a swanky interior, and an elegant promenade right on the doorstep. There’s a kids’ pool, hot tub, and loads of sports and activities to keep everyone happy. The buffet restaurant serves up a variety of cuisine, there are two bars including one by the pool, and there’s also a stylish fitness centre and spa.

Hesperia Bristol Playa

This feels more like a relaxing, high-end Mediterranean village than an apartment hotel. The headland setting is impossibly beautiful with mountain and ocean views, delightful whitewashed dwellings, and scattered palm trees. You’re 10 minutes from Corralejo town here, with the beach another five minutes on. The sunken lagoon pools swirl around the grounds, and there’s also a gym, kids’ pool, buffet restaurant and poolside bar.

Labranda Aloe Club Resort

With an idyllic location overlooking the dunes, this traditionally-styled property has a lot to offer. There are loads of sports and activities both on-site and down the road at the Aloe Club Resort. There are three pools with two for kids along with a mini-club and playground. The apartments are well-equipped, there’s a theatre showing live performances, and the local bars, shops and eateries are only 500 metres away.
