Spent a wonderful week at the Bahai Real in July 2009.
You can tell good hotels by how well they do the check in - this was very quick. Had a sea facing room; this was very comfortable with TV, minibar, safe etc. It had 2 huge wardrobes and a very nice bathroom.
We were on B&B so can only comment on the breakfast. This was very good. You can get a one page round up of the news of various languages as you go in. Used the bar in the hotel a few times, not too expensive and there are fantastic views from the terrace.
On the first evening we decided to walk into the town. Got maps and directions from the front desk, they offered to call us a taxi - probably not used to that many people doing the 20 minute walk. Beware of the palm trees. They block most of the paths so you need to walk in the cycle path or the road. This wasn't a problem as no one else was around; I think we saw 2 people and 1 car.
The town has the typically neon clad tourist bars and restaurants, we didn't go into them but they looked OK, and others around the seafront/harbour. Everyone was friendly and you don't get people pestering you too much to go into their bar. The strength of the euro against the pound meant everything seemed quite expensive, but we didn't go to anywhere that was a rip off.
We got a taxi back to the hotel each night. These are easy to pick up from the 2 taxi ranks and cost 3-4 euros to get back.
Back to the hotel review. Pool area was very good; the hotel wasn’t very full when we were there so it was easy to get a sunbed. Gym is very good was well. Our room was at the other end of the hotel from the gym so part of the work out was walking to it. Didn't try out the spa or inside pool.
There aren't many facilities near the hotel. There is a Netto supermarket for getting water etc. 5 minutes away but that is it. The recession has hit the Canary Islands and the building work around the hotel has all stopped. There is a small shopping centre 10 minutes walk away, but it is better to walk into the town if you want more choice.
Did the Tourist Train around Corralejo - you get to see the town in a 30 minutes ride. We did it towards the end of our holiday but it may have been better to do it earlier so we could have seen more places we could have gone to.
Our overall verdict is - very good hotel, 20 minutes walk into the town to get to some good bars and restaurants. Recommended.
