“Words Cant Explain!! Total Disaster”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Worst experience of our lioves staying here. We arrived optimistic after reading the many negative reviews on here, Thinking surely it cant be that bad. But boy It was worse. We paid almost £2000 for 2 weeeks All Inclusive, We arrived only to be given what could bve described as a converted store room, With 2 single beds and a sofa. We booked a 1 Bedroom double apartment as we were on our Honeymoon. We complained and were told we would have to wait 2 days to change rooms to the 5th floor. We moved but wasnt much better. nothing but a curtain to seperate the bedroom from the Lounge if thats what you could call it with a tiny sofa bed. stained and smelly. TV you had to pay for... On to the food. I was poisoned for almost 7 days of my holiday with trips to a doctor and pharmacy only place could have been was at the hotel. One night we sat having a drink and A Mouse yes a Mouse came running from the restaurant outside. I swear it was running from the food too... Cockroaches everywhere around restaurant needs updating seriously, I could understand if we had only paid a small amount but £2000 was unbeliveable. you can stay next door at the IFA which is 4 star, gorgeous went a few times for £100 more. Biggest mistake of our lives staying here. staff rude. arragant, asked for a drink it was like youd spat in there face, food always the same. using the left overs from the day before to create another dish. Vile!! Please take my advice and do not stay here, I used to live on the island as a Rep and I dont ever moan, But this has to be heard. the place needs to be demolished!! only good point was location close to beach and bus station and bars and yumbo etc all close by

Room Tip: Dont choose a low floor.

A typical 1980s multi storey hotel, not been altered since.Needs updating and renovating as it's getting a bit tired and worn out.I had a small apartment on the 2nd floor down a strange maze of zig zag corridors. 2 single beds and fold out settee, en suite with shower only,a 2 ring hot plate and fridge, no kettle or air con, which can be rented at extra cost, slot pay t.v.. No balcony, opening window overlooks pool, noisy motorway traffic passes by.Extra cost for room safe. Not luxury but adequate for a nights sleep.Buffet breakfast not a great selection. At the San Augustin end , near the beach and a short stroll into the town centre past plenty of bars and restaurants.
Steep steps down to the main beach area, there is a lift which rarely works which goes halfway down to more steps and a steep ramp, not wheelchair friendly.

My self and a friend stayed in the corona Roja and I after one week of a 4 week holiday checked out as my room was never cleaned the staff including the English staff were extremely rude blood was found in the beds and blood stained walls through out the hotel , the entire room was filled with pubic hair , spiders and mold etc I was also robbed my laptop, iPad and some clothing were stolled from my LOCKED room after speaking to the staff they ensured me that only staff members would have entered my room so basicly the staff are not to be trusted DO NOT STAY HERE if you have enjoyed the corona Roja you have clearly no self respect !!!!

Room Tip: Don't even think about it !! Send Alex polizzi

We spent a week there in early oct, all inclusive. Had to upgrade room on arrival, the ' studio' was a tiny double, no air con and no balcony was like a hot house. so paid an extra 70 euros to have a one bed apartment, we were.told there were no other rooms available, but hotel was obviously no near full.
Staff ok generally. Little choice of food, although it was OK it was always cold.
poor entertainment, nothing after 9pm
Hotel is well located near shops, bars ect, good bus routes to visit other places, met some great people, so enjoyed the holiday, def go back to Gran Canaria but not to the Corona Roja

Room Tip: Make sure there is a balcony as there is no air conditioning in the hotel

Corna Roja

Reception ok don’t speak much English. Free Wifi only in reception area not always working, women on lunchtime does not know anything about internet.
Hand dryers do not work in toilets in reception, quite often no toilet paper in ladies.
Room: Very small, glitter hair spray stuck to headboard. Sheets never changed, sheets pulled straight in a made way, but long dark hairs everywhere & my partner & I are both fair. Bath so small shower curtain stuck to you when you turned the water on, no plugs in sink or bath.
Pool: In desperate need of refurbishment & good clean, greasy scum stuck to tiles round outside, many of which are broken, concrete edge all broken
Bar does not open till 11.00hrs for soft or alcoholic drinks
Food: Breakfast only cooked food were sausages some re-heated from night before, baked beans, once bacon, twice scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs.
Lunch and dinner small selection, many repeats.
Entertainment: In the evening sometimes a chap with a guitar or who sung on a karaoke machine, left a lot to be desired, this was in the dining room from 1830-21.00 while you were eating dinner.
There was no comfortable seats to sit anywhere in the evening, just outside on plastic chairs with all the smokers or on dining chairs in the bar area.
