We'd walked past this hotel on previous visits to the island and thought we would like to stay there. we were not disappointed. It's even better on the inside! Staff friendly and welcoming, whole place immaculately clean. We booked B&B because we wanted to eat in the town but unfortunately we got caught up in the lock down. Hotel was under instructions to close down so first we lost the restaurants and then the bars, the evening entertainment and the pool but the buffet was a not bad second best. Under these circumstances the hotel did extremely well. we will certainly be back again when this is all over.
Fantastic hotel - great staff, facilities and food
I was a little concerned about the size of this hotel (around 350 rooms - we usually go for a maximum of 150) but was agreeably surprised. Everything was first class! From the moment we arrived and were offered a welcome drink to departure the staff were brilliant and the facilities great. The hotel was not full so we always had a choice of beds (around the pools or over the sea) and again the staff were very friendly. We used the spas for massage and hairdressing and were very impressed (Daniella is a great masseur). Food was very good. The buffet restaurant had an enormous choice for breakfast and dinner and themed evenings with show cooking. The a la carte restaurants are OK (it is nice to have the food served to you sometimes)! I am very sorry that the hotel has to close with the current situation. We came home just before it was all closed down (we had two days where we could not leave the hotel but we went for a restful holiday and hardly left the site anyway). I hope the hotel can see the current situation out and the staff are well looked after as the only income source is tourism and hotels need good trained staff. We will come back and support you when this all goes away. Good luck!
Super 5-star hotel with wonderful staff!
We stayed at the Gran Hotel Bahia Real for 9 days at the end of February. Unfortunately, this coincided with the awful (very unusual) sand storm, so the anticipated winter sun was a little lacking for most of the trip! However, if you have to be stuck somewhere because of the weather, we couldn't have been anywhere better than this hotel! Our room had a lovely view over the beach to the sea, very spacious and absolutely spotlessly clean, the housekeeping staff here are second to none! A nice big private balcony outside which we would have used more if the weather had been better. The bathroom was big and roomy with lovely towels and good quality toiletries which were replenished daily. The walk-in shower was lovely and powerful with lots of room, just great. The communal areas are lovely - the pool area with its shaded palms and little pathways is delightful, and the sunbeds are some of the most comfortable we have ever had the pleasure to use! Yes, some of the corridors could do with a touch up here and there, but certainly nothing major or to detract from how lovely the hotel is. We ate every lunch time at the restaurant by the pool and enjoyed a different lunch almost every day - the sea bass was to die for! Breakfast is superb! A magnificient choice in lovely surroundings, with something for absolutely everyone, just fabulous. We used the gym every morning and again, it was spotless, with a good range of equipment - treadmills, cycles, cross-trainers, weights etc with an excellent choice of daily classes. The staff at this hotel are all wonderful - from our warm welcome by the congierge team to the housekeeping staff, without exception they are fantastic. A real credit to the hotel. I just hope that the current situation with the Coronavirus doesn't impact too heavily for too long on this lovely hotel and their amazing team. We would certainly return and would recommend very highly.
What a perfect break!
We were there at the end of February which unfortunately coincided with the Sand Storm from the Saturday to the Tuesday, but we wish to express our thanks to the wonderful staff who were constantly hosing down sun beds or clearing sand from around the hotel. All staff were helpful and the Concierge Staff especially provided ideas of places to see or visit during our week. Nothing was too much trouble especially in the Buffet breakfast as I am a coeliac and each morning one of the lovely serving staff provided gluten-free products for me. Yes, as some have said the furnishings are a little tired but the hotel is in the process of closing next autumn for a refurb. The rooms were kept spotless and all toiletries were topped up regularly and we were able to avail of the pillow menu and the linen menu to aid better sleep. Location perfect with the beach in front of the hotel and the inner courtyard complete with pools. Relaxing sun beds with comfortable mattresses to while away the time and a pleasant guy on the towel kiosk issuing towels. We didn’t eat in the hotel at night preferring to try restaurants in town, but enjoyed the little restaurant overlooking the pool for a mid day snack. We enjoyed visiting Fuerteventura and hope to return. Thanks to everyone on the staff for making this a relaxing break.
Wonderful place for some winter sun.
This really is an great hotel. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. The standard of cleanliness is impeccible. The location is quiet with great views of the sea, and only a short taxi ride from all the restuarants in Corralejo. However what makes it are the staff, all we met were without exception very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast has something for everyone - I have never seen a better spread. Highly recommended.
