Thought I'd do a wee trip report on Corralejo seeing as it was our first proper visit there.
Firstly, we managed to get a great deal through Alpharooms for Hotel Oasis Village on all-inclusive and booked flights through Ryanair's website. It was exceptionally good value for the price we paid. The hotel was also in a decent location, around a 10-15 min walk to the Main street and there were plenty bars with live music on. We went to quite a few that I was told about here on tripadvisor so thanks to all who replied with some names for us. Flintstones, Corner Rock, Rock Café were great, Robin's Nest also. (A special mention for Robins Nest though, it was a warm and friendly place where we felt comfortable and relaxed and enjoyed a chat with staff and other customers) We ate out one afternoon at Waikiki and found the food and prices good value. We had been to Waikiki once before on a day trip over from Lanzarote so we knew it was value for money beforehand. Other bars we went to at night were McCarthy's, the Sports bar just across from it, Ali's Tavern in the old town close by the square with music on at night and Flicks, who have an agreement with the Oasis Village for guests to enjoy a free cocktail and all drinks half price 'til 10pm. We never did find Rosie O'Gradys.
We did sunbathe on the beach close to Waikiki one afternoon and it was pretty windy but the parasols were laid on their side blocking out a lot of the wind. It was 4:50e per sunbed. We took a day trip down to Oasis Park on Monday and enjoyed the day out.
Overall, we enjoyed Corralejo. We didn't know if it would suit us having previously enjoyed trips to Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote and the impression we had of the island is that it's quieter than the other Canaries and more for surfers and watersports enthusiasts but no, we did like it and probably would make a return again, even more so if we could get a terrific deal on the Oasis Village hotel again. Thanks to all who helped us first-timers with various questions and queries, it helped us enormously to get a sense of what to expect.
