“Spot on for a great holiday!!”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

We are a couple in our mid-forties, having travlelled to the Canary Islands many times staying in mainly 4-5 star hotels, we can honestly say this hotel well deserves it's 3 star status and with a little encouragement could try for a 4 star! We opted for half board and as the apartments are kitted out for self catering we had best of both worlds.
We hired our own car, which was fantastically cheap for 11 days (autoreisen/top car, booked before we went) £112 euro's for the whole stay, no hidden extra's, though a £200 deposit which was promptly re-paid when we dropped the car off.

On arrival, we were greeted by a pleasant lady at reception and were given room C503, however when we entered the room I could have cried, there seemed to be broken furniture strewed around the living area, it was dirty, smelt musty, it was 10pm by this time and the other half was about to settle for the room, but I thought there must be a mistake and we went back to reception to complain. When we told her about the state of the room, she called house-keeping, there was a heated fracus between them and she came back extremely embarrassed, it seems we had been given a room that they had been using for storage and broken equipment and was not for letting out (oops!) So off we went again to room C105......this was more like it, at 10.30 I was now a happy bunny.

The apartments are 2 storey, and our block was 2nd back from the pool area, and was ground floor. The patio area faced a graveled garden and a road ( which was screened off with) I thought we may hear noise from the road but that really wasn't the case, it was very quiet. Although the patio area was shaded, this was a blessing after the intense heat of the day. The apartments are well equipped and clean... yes they seem a little tired and the walls are marked but hey, that is too trivial to give a bad review.

The pool area is bliss, even at a 4/5 star I have never seen this many big pools, there are 3 large pools and 1 baby pool, and enough sun-loungers for the whole of Corralejo! Ok so the pools are salted, but there are warm showers dotted around with fresh water to rinse off. The only downside for me here was the music all day, but I suppose the entertainment team can't please everyone. The team come round and try to get you to do things but they aren't pushy and are very friendly, if you don't like music.... take some ear plugs..easy!

Staying half board we had breakfast and evening meal..... the food is gorgeous, and is on par with a RIU 4/5 star, there's a lot of choice with various themed nights. please look out for the meat-balls and spare ribs, they will be the best you have ever tasted. On our 11 night stay, no 2 nights were the same. Breakast consists of the usual English/ pastries/ cereals e,t,c and of course we had the english every day, though 1 draw back... when the lady is cooking, the fresh eggs and pancakes are cooked to perfection, when the man is cooking, the eggs are quite 'flemmy' just ask him to flip them over for a minute, and if you spend too long messing about getting coffee/toast e,t,c and find your breakfast has gone cold, there's a microwave!

There is a supermarket on site, but is quite expensive, there is a big one a short walk away at the Campanario Centre, you go out the front of the hotel and turn left and it's just a short walk, there are other boutiques and bars there also, and entertainment every night from 8pm apart from a Wed i think, ranging from spanish guitarists, male spanish singers, flamenco, and also on a Sunday they have a small craft market with entertainment from 12-2pm.
The hotel is ideally situated for a short walk into town and we were entertained every night, to name a few bars....Rock Cafe(band every night), Retro (singer every night)... there are too many to mention, but a real must is to go down to the old town by the harbour, there are restaurants galore and you can while away the night in the plaza where there is also entertainment while you eat or drink..... and then stagger back to the hotel : )
Being young at heart we also went to 'Flicks' to watch the football and what a friendly crowd they have there! people of all ages, enjoying themselves, we even went on the kareoke!!!
You will find something to suit you at Corralejo, It's fun, not too loud and definitely not 'in your face' larger louts.

I can't comment on the beach in the town, as we drove to the 'Blue Flag' beach at the sand dunes ( there are buses that go there) and here you will find a choice... stay by the Riu hotels for Textile beaches ( sun loungers & parasols to hire) or go further along for the naturist beaches, which is what we did, all very respectable to get the all-over tan. If the wind is blowing the sand too much there are many beach pods (shelters built from stones)further back into the dunes, also provides privacy and quiet. The sea is very rough and the life-guard is up and down the beach all day blowing his whistle if you stray too far out! We also drove to El cotillo, the sea here is calmer but also seems windier, but again there are stone beach pods.

The entertainment team are friendly but the evening shows are pretty bad, (it seems the children are kept well entertained though) but as I said you can find lots of entertainment elsewhere. The hotel on the whole was quiet, the reps say that bookings are well down because of the Jubilee/ olympics, so you can probably get a good deal right now, we went with Thomas Cook who are the reps there, if you do go with them DO NOT go over your luggage allowance you will be charged £14 per KG over, this includes you hand luggage that also gets weighed.

Tips to make your holiday better>>>>
1) If your bed is too hard, there are thick blankets in the wardrobe, put them under your bottom sheet to soften the mattress.... bliss!
2) To save on buying drinks all day, take a cool bag with you and freeze bottles of water/juice these will melt during the day and also act as ice packs for sandwiches ( get a french stick and make up a baguette sandwich), especially good for the beach.
3) THEY DO NOT PROVIDE BEACH/SUN-LOUNGER TOWELS. Take them with you or you can get overly large ones for about 6 euro's
4) Buy a lilo, this will be more comfortable for lying on your front as the sun-loungers do not lie completely flat, and also good for the beach.
5) We are quite tanned all-year-round, and normally never burn YOU WILL BURN because of the winds, the sun is piercing and is deceptive in the cool wind, be careful. There is a sun advisor lady selling creams at the hotel, the after-sun was a god send and smells divine!
6) Take a cardigan/jacket it drops quite cool in the evening (it's not like the other canary islands)
7) If you go to the market at the Baku Water Park ( Fri/Mon) don't go till after 10 as they are still setting up, and ladies if you get intimidated don't go alone, if you pick something up to look at they will not leave you alone (why don't they ever get the message that they would sell more if you were allowed to browse!!)
8) try the snorkelling in the hotel pool, then go with him to the sea and play with the fishes : )
9) The drinks for the evening meal ARE NOT free (as with most half board you get a house wine or small beer)
10) If you stay in room C105, please feed our adopted cat : )

We will definitely be going back, happy holidays readers, if you wan't any more information, email me.

I stayed here for a week 12th - 19th June with my wife, 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter.
Stayed self catering but did have a few takeaways from the hotel resteraunt and had no complaints. The complex is lovely and the pools are fantastic. Was fairly quiet but found the entertainment team to be excellent for the kids. Will be back next year.

We have just returned from a week at the Oasis Duna (June 2012) and couldn't really fault the place, especially when taking into account the amount we paid. The 3 star rating is fair and as long you are not expecting luxury you will be very pleased to stay here. These apartments are located less than 10 minutes level walk from the main drag in Corralejo town which has more shops, restaurants and bars than you can shake a stick at ! It has its own mini supermarket which is convenient, but you will find the "Spa" in town much cheaper.

As for unwanted guests - apart from the odd ant and a rogue mosquito, (boy did he feast well till we got him on night 2!) the apartment was bug free and the only cockroaches we saw were living outside which seems only fair as they have to live somewehere !! There are a few moggies wandering about but theyre friendly enough especially if you feed them !

These are low rise apartments (just 2 storeys) are basic and clean wth a lounge (with kitchenette) /separate bedroom and bathroom. I'm not sure how often the apartments were cleaned but the towels were changed almost daily.The kitchenette was clean and basic and included a small cooker, a fridge and microwave. The crockery, glasses and utensils were clean and all present. Oh and the cups are in the cupboard under the cooker but are out of sight unless you are vertically challenged, in which case you may spot them - I didnt and had to ask reception! We did have one minor problem when one of the lampshades fell off the ceiling ! Im guessing that a gust of wind (its very windy in Fueteventura!) blew it off but it was replaced by their maintainance man within 10 minutes - very impressive service !

Our apartment was at the rear of the development (B 308) which was fairly quiet though it may be a little noisier if you faced one of the pools - there are several to choose from !
This would especially apply during the day when there is music playing non stop and the Thomas Cook staff are doing their best to entertain their clients. Theres also live entertainment on the stage every evening which is all very low key and not really to my taste, but its there if you want it. They offer an active kids entertainments programme - again not for me but great if you are taking little ones and need a break ( I remember those days! ) There are several bars and restaurants on site but as we chose to eat out in the town instead, I'm not able to say how good or bad these were. Oh and the Wifi is free at Oasis if you have your own device, but only works in reception.

If I went there again (and I would) I'd ask for a first floor apartment as ours was on the ground floor and the terrace at the back of the apartment was in shade most of the time - this isnt a criticism its just an observation as this might be advantage when it gets really hot which it does during the peak Summer months.

If you are headed out that way have fun and dont miss out on the Rock Cafe in the main street its a great night out - Enjoy !!

Stayed at this hotel from 12th - 19th May and thought it was excellent. We were a party of four aged from 57 - 85 and had a wonderful time. We had booked self catering because we wanted to eat out and found the apartments were comfortable and roomy. If you wanted to make a meal there was enough cooking facilities, two rings, toaster and microwave and plenty of crockery, utensils etc. All the staff were very friendly and the entertainment team were really good, although we only watched one of the shows because we were going out at night. they still made a point of coming to talk to you during the day if you were round the pool. We were lucky and hit a heatwave that came from the sahara so temperatures were up in the 40s, so pool temp was quite good, and the rooms had fans in them. This hotel is so handy for everything, If you have children the water park is just across the road, as is bus stops, and main street with all the bars,shops, restaurants is literally a few minutes walk away.
We ate out every night and you are spoilt for choice. Can recommend San Borondon down near the seafront, and does the most wonderful fish dishes, but it is italian so spoilt for choice. Rock Cafe, Retro Bar really good, has good entertainment on nightly and staff are great. Go to Waikiki Beach bar and have champagne sangria, wonderful. Nice little bar set back on the beach at Waikiki called the Point, cheap drinks and snacks. We did use hotel restaurant for breakfast one morning and that was good for 7 euros and also had pizza one night from takeway bar in hotel and that was really good and a good price as well.
we did a couple of trips, one was the freebie where you have to listen to the sales patter for the beds and blankets etc. but was really funny and enjoyable, and we had a wonderful free full day out. We went up into the mountains and practically around the island, it was lovely. A must in the music hall tavern, the show is absolutely fantastic and the meal was really good, only about 44 euros and while the meal is being served you get free wine, beer, sangria, soft drinks, so good value.
Would go back to this hotel again, and would certainly recommend it. There was a small supermarket as usual but only 5 mins up the road is a hypermarket and some on main street as well.

Room Tip: We were in room 107a and overlooked the pool area. Also take a torch with you because it was a bit d...

Myself, my wife and our 3 children (9,5 & 2) spent 2 glorious weeks on a self-catering holiday here at the beginning of May (5th-19th) and we were delighted with the Oasis Duna.
From our arrival to our departure we couldn't find (not that we were looking) fault with the hotel in any aspect. The staff were helpful and polite, the rooms were clean, spacious and had everything you needed. The pools, although salt-water, were huge and well maintained with loads of loungers.
As we were staying at the beginning of the season, the hotel wasn't anywhere near full, but there was still plenty of entertainment and activities for the kids and I would like to give a special thanks to the girls in the "Kids Club" who our two eldest (both girls) adored and had a fantastic time with. We only ate in the hotel on one night but found the food to be quite nice with a good variation and quality.
The real star of the holiday is Corralejo itself- the main street is just 2 mins walk from the hotel and there is plenty of restaurants to choose from and we found 3 in particular that were superb: "Retro" which is an english-themed bar/restaurant- the food there was absolutely amazing and they also have live music every night from 9ish. Down towards the centre of town on the right-hand side were "Cannes" and a couple of doors down "Secreto" (i think!!)- Cannes for the most delicious home-made ice-cream, along with coffee and croissants etc and Secreto for food. They are both small, cafe type places with wonderfully friendly staff and great food.
The Baku waterpark is right across the road from the hotel and it is a great day out although a tad on the expensive side if you are on a tight budget- nearly 90euro for the 5 of us but it is open from 10-5 with the rides closing at 4.30 (the hours might be extended during peak season). Inside the park at the kids area they have 3 shows during the day- hawks/eagles, snakes and parrots and they are well worth the admission fee alone. There are plenty of rides and a wave pool over by the kids area as well.
Overall, this holiday was outstanding and our kids absolutely loved the place, almost as much as the staff seemed to love them!!! We would go back in a heartbeat and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of staying in Fuerteventura

Room Tip: You can hire A/C units from reception for 50euro per week. TV is 4euro per 12 hr period (12midnight...

we spent two weeks in the Oasis Duna hotel. we really enjoyed it!
the food is fantastic, they have a couple of themed nights a week, to name a few we had - bbq, chinese, italian, mexican.

my only downfall was the cleanliness of our room, it could have been cleaned so much better, but apart from that everything was brill

there are 3 pools, although they are alt water they are still very good!

the rooms are a decent size and plenty of space for your things!

the entertainment was good and there were activities available for those that would want to get involved eg darts, football, basketball, quizes

its just a minute walk to the main strip of corralejo where there is a number of bars restaurants and shops

we would visit the hotel again in the future :)
