The hotel is located on the outskirts of Corralejo, but just a 5 – 10 min stroll into town. The view as you are walking into town is dominated by the hinterland of Lanzarote.
This is quite a large complex of low rise 1 & 2 bed apartments, also some Villas.
Some of the apartments are privately owned, and have awnings and BBQ areas.
The apartments are joined by a series of pathways around the site, so you can just ‘go for a walk’ within the grounds and take in the gardens and flora.
It was quite pretty at night walking back to your apartment.
Reception is bright and large, staffed by some of the most friendliest people you’ll encounter, all speak very good English.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, which was simply huge compared to just the one room in a hotel.
As we were on the ground floor, we had a small patio area to ourselves.
The apartment was obviously fully equipped for self catering, but the all inclusive option was so cheap we decided to take that. There were two restaurant’s, one was the traditional buffet…
…which had self-serve beer, wine and soft drinks.
The second restaurant was a themed restaurant, open 5 nights a week, which had different foods from around the world on different days, such as Mexican, Indian, Chinese etc. We only ate in there once, on Indian night, we didn’t particularly like the offerings as they were ‘the Spanish version’ of the more popular British idea of a ‘curry night out’, and not to our taste or variety.
I have to say that the let down of the hotel was the quality of the food, although I have some sympathy with the hotel.
Whilst we were there, the hotel was only at 30% capacity, with only half of those (so 15%) on All Inc or FB. That equated to about 100 meals per sitting, and I think it’s virtually impossible to keep such a small quantity of meals fresh and hot for the two hour window in which the restaurant is open.
However, there was pretty much something you could find every time.
The pool bar was open from Midday until 16.30, self-serving hot dogs, pizzas, burgers, chips, plus salad fruit and cakes.
There were five pools on site, each had plenty of sunbeds, although the hotel was obviously not full.
There were two pools at the lower end of the site, we called them the ‘secret pools’, because there was no bar open by these they were virtually deserted every day, so it was like having your own private area.
There were some areas of the hotel that could be due for a revamp, like the slabbing around the pool, but on the whole the hotel was clean with efficient staff, and in my opinion represented a good value for money option for holidaymakers.
