Noisy holiday in fuerteventura!
We have booked holidays many times with Thomas Cook and have always been
Completely delighted. However this time we were a bit disappointed. While the hotel was lovely it wasn't facing the sea as we thought, maybe we just didn't spot
This in the brochure. To add to this disappointment our room was not even overlooking the swimming pool even though the hotel clearly wasn't, full. Instead
It overlooked the back directly over the areas dustbins which were emptied in the middle to the night. Owing to the direction of the room the wind rattled through the
Windows causing sleepiness nights even when we jammed the armchair against it.
We went with another couple so It made it awkward to complain but we would
Not book again.

Ideal for older couples
Paid for all inclusive but that only applies up to 11pm after that all drinks are chargeable. The food was disappointing, not enough variety. Hotel location excellent, evening entertainment rubbish not for young couples you need to be over seventy to fit in. Free wifi limited to 30 mins per day and only in the hotel lobby

Excellent holiday for couples
Service from staff at hotel was superb second to none, helpful friendly and very informative about local issues. We had a lovely relaxing time at this hotel even though weather changeable (staff would have helped with this if they could).

Enjoyable relaxing holiday
Location excellent....close to some amazing beaches car hire/bike hire a must....local shopping centres excellent ....Bars and restaurants plenty to choose from, must Is the cocktail bar behind the square, McCarthys pub and visit the square for some excellent music entertainment ...
Hotel needs a complete re furb the furnishing in the rooms need to go on a bonfire and the linen needs complete refurb
Do not waste your time queuing for a sunned, hotel entertainment rubbish, go and find some of your own in the excellent local bars

Beautiful hotel. Felt very unwelcome as solo traveller.
Hotel was very nice.Reception area stunning and bedroom was extremely clean.
Dining room staff were friendly, alas not in the bar upstairs.
I felt very uncomfortable being on my own. The bar staff ignored me most evenings. Bought a Bailey's eventually but took it back up to my room and enjoyed the music from one of the local bars from my balcony.
Breakfast was excellent. Dinner variable. Food tepid and poor quality for 4 star hotel.

Barcelo corralejo fuerteventura .Had a week in this hotel, reception area very large and clean with plenty of places to sit and relax, only had half a hour free internet per night which was only available in the reception area. rooms ok but the bathrooms could be updated as its abit old fashion. shower over the bath plenty of hot water, double sinks. The beds have a topper on the mattresses but after the second night we asked to have it removed due to back pain, as the toppers are so soft. The food was very nice and plenty of it but each b/fast we had to ask for a microwave as the food was just warm NOT hot. Why they just didnt leave it out i will never know. The sun beds by the pool are so uncomfortable no cushions on them. all staff very friendly. Ps,,ask for a pool view as many rooms look over main roads, there is a kettle in each room.

Nice hotel shame about the food
The hotel itself was really nice adults only oasis of calm but the buffet food was the most mediocre we can remember having had anywhere. Maybe that's why Thomsons dropped it from their programme. On Xmas Day the hotel couldn't even be bothered to roast real turkeys for dinner. They didn't do so when we booked, but Thomas Cook should consider offering this hotel B&B as there are so many good places to eat only a short walk from the hotel. We had a fantastic meal out overlooking the harbour on our last night.

Great Hotel Great Holioday
Had a lovely weeks stay at the Barcelo Corralejo Bay, Corralejo Fuerteventura. The Hotel was spotless, food was well cooked and offered a good chocie of food. The staff were friendly and helpful and went out of thier way to be so.
Location wise the Hotel is perfectly situated just a few minutes walk from the beach and the main shopping street.
Room facilities were excellent with tea and coffee making facilities, flat scren TV showing 3 movie channels and 2 news channels.
All in all nothing at all to complain about from leaving Manchester airport to coming home everything was perfect even the weather.
