Returned this morning (15/04/14) from a 10 day stay at the HCB. We were on the first floor overlooking the main street, which was noisy on some nights. My adult daughter had the room next to us. The rooms were identical, both very clean with modern dark wood and red furniture as per the photos.
the pull out bed i found uncomfortable to sit on but I am 6'2 and a bit and the lumber support built into the sofa was in the wrong place for me. Likewise the beds were a little small but thats a universal problem for me. ignoring the size, which was normal hotel standard, the bed itself was very comfortable with a medium firm mattress and very soft pillows. We requested more pillows and they arrived in minutes. The shower was clean, powerful and never ran out of hot water. it did take a little while to drain in our room but my daughter states hers was fine. Occasionally there was a bit of a drain smell from the bathroom. Safety deposit box was only 2 euro a day which they deduct from the 20 deposit. that said we had no real reason to use the box although we did, as no issues security wise in the hotel or the whole resort. we had a fault with our door look and it was not until day 4 that I found out the door was not locking, teach me to ignore the bleeps when i shut the door! Again as soon as mentioned to reception was fixed in minutes. Aircon very good, english tv limited to 3 news channels, bbc, sky and euronews, but dont come on holiday to what tv. Only one bedside plug so had to take turns charging tablet, phones etc.
We stayed B&B so can only speak for breakfast which was above average for buffet self service quality and quantity. pleanty of selection, fresh fruit, muslie, cornflakes, breads of all sorts and assorted breakfast pastries. Hot food was again usual standard, bacon never as it is at home but nothing to complain about, pleanty of fresh eggs, omelette beans, veg if you like breakfast veg!, fresh pancakes. Having been to Corralejo for last 3 years, normally at the Corralejo Bay, we decided to support the local economy and eat out this time, I can recommend the fillet steak at La mama's, just up the side street from Corner Rock, which in itself does good burgers and a pizza which is big enough for 2 to share or at least 2 for 3 to share if big eaters.
Back to the hotel, the pool area is clean with approx 40 sunbeds but only 10 loungers and despite notices not too we found the loungers were reserved before breakfast, not a big problem for us as we tended to go to the beach which is a 5 minute walk at the most. The previous review about poor quality loungers has obvious been listened to as all were new, clean and comfortable. As with most start of the season hotel pools the water was take your breath away cold but refreshing once in!. Life guard on duty all the time and pool bar was competative with beer prices at 2.5 a pint, most bars are 3 unless happy hour when its a 1 euro. Spirit measures are huge vodka and coke resulted in half a glass of vodka and a 200ml bottle of coke, had to order a second bottle for my wife, too strong and she's used to my home measures, must have been a triple if not a quadruple measure, and again reasonably priced.
overall an excellent location minutes walk from the old town, the beach and the newer more commercial shop area. will be going back again.
