We have recently returned from this hotel with our 2 young boys, 7 and 4 years old. We have travelled to many 5 star hotels around the world and this is most definately does not pass 5 star rating for us! First impressions arriving at the hotel late at night (9pm) with 2 tired boys in tow, were very good, we received a glass of Cava and the boys a juice and check in was straightforward apart from one small niggle, we had booked late so had to have 2 rooms instead of 1 for the 4 of us, so I requested interconnecting rooms or at least next to each other when I booked, but when we checked in I was given room 217 and my husband 212 so 5 doors apart!! I queried this and the girls on reception were helpful after seeing how young our boys are and said that tomorrow they could give us 216, right next door, wouldnt it have been simpler to have just given us that in the beginning. Very disappointed and absolutely ridiculous to expect families to stay in 2 separate rooms wiihout interconnecting doors, one night my son was poorly and my husband had to text me at 4am to ask for calpol. We wasnt sure if we would be allowed into the restaurant that night but luckily it was open till 10pm so we were able to have dinner and there was still lots of choice available and restocking all the time. Just one point about dinner, unless your children like pasta, fish or steak there is very little choice for them to have, not that I am saying they should have nuggets and chips every night because I am not, but my boys lived on pasta for a week, so we made sure they ate properly at lunchtime with more variety. Even we were bored after the 3rd night of the same food. They do advertise theme nights in the newsletter in the morning with different themed food every evening, if you call 2-3 dishes theme night then forget it. When we have been to hotels in the past with themes, the whole restaurant has different variety of food. Breakfast however was a totally different experience, this was fabulous and had something for everyone, just a shame about the stroppy cook on the omelete station who completely ignored people standing there while preparing food, think her name was EVL. so rude with a queue of people standing in line waiting. My husband gave up waiting one day and had fried eggs instead. Staff in general were friendly especially with the boys and majority spoke English apart from the cleaners really, the bell boys were the most polite out of all of them and other staff were just rude. Wifi is free within the hotel and pool grounds and never had problem with a signal so that is good. TV has lots of english channels too again which can be handy trying to keep kids occupied while waiting to go to breakfast. We had 2 sea view rooms, which were lovely and view was nice, one thing to bear in mind is though going at this time of year we never had the sun on our balcony, not sure if this is different in the summer months such a shame as we would have loved to sit out there at times. Entertainment in La Boheme was good and varied and they like audience participation. The bar in the main reception is more for adults with musicians playing. Pools are nice but quite chilly, very few people made it into the large pool, but by the end of last week they were a nice temperature. There are also life guards around the pools looking after the children, my youngest tripped and cut his foot on a tile and I cannot thank the life guard enough how quickly he responded and made him better with spray and a bandage, just wish I had got his name. very impressed . Gym looked good but we didnt manage to find any time to try it out. Spa is lovely I had a deep tissue massage with Rita and she was fabulous so I had to go back and have another. One of my best deep tissue massages. If you dont have children then it is nice to lay around the jacuzzi on the roof near the gym for peace lol. Beach is nice but as per another comment on here would love to know when photo was taken or was it airbrushed as there are many rocks. Also shocked to not have any security on the gates from the beach so anyone could have walked in, didnt like that. Cleaners made sure the rooms were kept very nice but something we both found happening was that after they had been, our patio doors were not locked back up. We only realised this on our last couple of days so didnt report. If you want to go into town or to the harbour, it is a nice walk along the beach and took us about half hour with the boys stopping every 5 mins, unfortunately they didnt like to walk back so we got a cab for about Euro 4. There were some nice restaurants around there our favourite with huge portions sizes and good price was LaMARquesina. And now for my final comment, the mini club - OH DEAR, OH DEAR, OH DEAR what can I say, the entertainment schedule is crap, we thought being school holidays there would be lots of fun things to keep them occupied and out of the sun for an hour but their first visit they were making easter bunnies, not really a boy thing I know but we had a spa treatment booked so had to put them in there for an hour, because they didnt want to do this, they got given some bricks as the only option!! We asked if they wanted our details and they said only if their first time, which it was, we told them we were only next door and they ignored this and there was no secuirty password to collect, they didnt have a clue who was who and with what children. One night they went to mini disco while my husband and I popped into the japanese restaurant next door and my elddest told us they only played 2 songs in an hour. But our most appalling experience of all was the easter egg hunt, we dropped them off after breakfast and then went back to our room to sort out bags for the beach/pool, we then walked back down to collect them approx 45 minutes later and our 4 year old was walking around the pool on his own OMG our hearts skipped a beat, then a man that had been walking about 10 paces infront of him said oh is he with you, he was helping out on the easter egg hunt, he was English but definately wasnt staff and was helping out with other peoples children, i take it he wasnt CRB checked????. I immediately walked into the mini club and complained to the girl there who said they were on a easter egg hunt i said yes I didnt have a problem with the hunt but I do not expect to find my 4 year old (who cannot swim) wandering around with a man who i do not know without uniform and not being with his older brother. She just pretended she didnt understand, I was and still am FUMING. I immediately followed this up with reception as this is not acceptable for a mini club to behave, you expect your children to be in safe hands, again reception I got a similar response, and didnt seem to understand the problem, I then spoke to the front of house Manager who referred me to the PR lady Susan who apologised and said she will sort this out and speak to them and speak to the Manager, I asked can she let me know the outcome to which she said yes..............guess what I am STILL waiting, we even saw her in the restaurant when she greeted us and didnt even recognise me. What sort of PR person is that. So be warned if you care about your kids enough, you might want to avoid the mini club!!!! I know this review might sound quite bad but we did manage to have a nice holiday, would we come here again, NO, would we recommend, yes but not to families.

My husband and I have just returned (4/4/15) and we highly recommend this hotel if you like beach access, large comfortable rooms, wonderful staff with a positive attitude to customer service, good food, nice surroundings and well groomed grounds. Our flight was delayed for 6 hours on the way home and the hotel staff were so very helpful, they simply look after their customers.

As my first time visiting a Canary Island, I was skeptical as to the kind of hotel I was going to be visiting, but the Bahia Real lived up to and exceeded all expectations. However, Fuerteventura is not the place for a beach holiday; unfortunately the beach outside the hotel was subject to strong winds and was frankly too cold to sit out on. This is the only major complaint, aside from a few minor complaints, such as many sun loungers by the pool being broken. The Bahia Real's main positive for me was the cuisine. With three distinct themed restaurants, I was astounded by the quality of each one's service and food. The reservations were staggered so the restaurants were never crowded or noisy, plus the food was always excellent. The pool area was always popular, and was never short of kids, but they mainly stayed by the kids pool which was away from the main two pools, so they never disturbed us much. Would recommend grabbing a couple of sun loungers around 9am, as this is when they start to disappear. We stayed in a suite, with unlimited free wifi and a desk, and a lovely sea view. The room was always spotless, and there were always staff available to provide the room with anything we needed (mostly milk for tea!) Overall, the Bahia Real is a great place for families of all ages as a relaxing getaway. Warm weather not always guaranteed though, as we ran into one unlucky couple who had spent a week there with relatively cold weather! The hotel was near faultless though, and would wholeheartedly recommend for a relaxing getaway!

As an Easter break we stayed for a week at the Bahia Real in Fuerteventura. This was our 4th trip to the island and our best. The hotel is very well appointed and the highlight (unexpectedly) was the AMAZING quality of the buffet dining option. The Alaceva Restaurant is excellent with themed buffet available each evening. We got the half board with breakfast and dinner and found it a very good option for a family. The staff here are very attentive and helpful and the live cooking areas are a great option. Another highlight is the pier into deep water for swimming which means you can avoid the rocky shores. This along with a very well organised system of wind breaks and chairs on the beach beside the hotel, makes this an ideal seaside location. Our kids loved the range of 3 pools to swim in as well as the kids club which caters for over 4yrs old. We'll be back again and have great memories of a great family holiday!

Tourist Information

Weather

Corralejo enjoys year-round sunshine and very little rainfall. Average daytime temperatures vary between 16°C at the start of the year and 25°C during the peak months of July and August.

If that sounds a bit too hot, or if you're visiting with younger kids who are more sensitive to the sun, try taking a Corralejo holiday outside of peak time - perhaps in October or February when the island still enjoys mild weather of around 23° Celsius, so a tan is still possible! The island also receives mild north-easterly winds all year round, so you’ll receive a welcome breeze whatever time you visit. Take particular care during peak season, though, as the breeze can disguise the strength of the sun.
