I recently visited Fuerteventura or the ‘windy island’ as it is affectionately known with my husband for a breakaway in May for his Birthday. We were lucky to have stayed at the Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real in Corralejo. This hotel is situated approx. 10 min walk to the centre of town and is located beside the beautiful turquoise waters and directly on the beach. The soft white sand dunes of Corralejo Natural Dune Park are only minutes away too for those who wish to experience and abundance of activities both in water and on land!

The hotel itself is like a haven of luxury in a very Canarian style of furnishings. From the moment we arrived we were greeted and given a glass of champagne and once checked in shown to our room whilst a porter took our luggage. Our room over looked the pool which certainly didn’t disappoint us, it wasn’t noisy and was lovely to sit out in the evenings on the balcony before heading out for the evening. The room was spacious, very clean, ample sized bathroom with all amenities needed and most importantly a huge very comfortable bed! Every evening there was a turn down service and lovely Little touches throughout the hotel to make your stay with them more enjoyable. The restaurants throughout the hotel are exceptional offering a good variety of food to suit all tastes. The feeling of calm surrounds you at this hotel, staff can’t do enough for you. There is waiter suffice for drinks both at the pool and on the beach making this a most relaxing break away from it all you could imagine!

Correlejo itself is a lovely town, the main town on the island yet it still holds that charm of a small fishing village when you’re in the old town. It’s a great location for couples and families alike with many hotels and apartments to suits all tastes and budgets. Great beaches with many water sports. The island has its own water park and Zoo. For those wishing to visit Lanzarote there is a regular ship running back and forth! There really is something for everyone on this island. We hired a car and explored the many small towns and beaches around but I still prefer Corellejo!
