We have been visiting Corralejo for many years, yet never stayed at El Sultan. Overall the complex was clean and the garden areas and pools were very well maintained. The complex was also very convenient for 10-15 minute walks to El Campanario, Baku and Main Street in Corralejo.
Casa Donn was well equipped with an excellent kitchen and very comfortable bedrooms. On arrival we were met by Barry very promptly. The property was clean and tidy.
Barry showed us around the property and gave advice on using the appliances. I personally liked the terrace area from the main bedroom, which was a great start to the day sat with a coffee, which also provided privacy when we chose to eat in. The wi-fi was good value at €15 per week. It was reliable and had a strong signal sufficient for streaming and allowed us to speak with our daughter back in the UK via FaceTime with no interruptions from downstairs only. Signal did not reach the first floor and roof terrace.
If I could offer a suggestion for improvement this would be to install ceiling fans. Whilst stand alone fans were provided in the bedrooms, they were quite noisy.
Some refurbishment work was taking place around the property whilst we were there, but this was more refilling cracks in masonary and redecoration to the exterior of the properties. It was however not an inconvenience and was good to see that the community owners were further investing in the appearance of their properties. At times there were more inflatables in the pool than people, however it was great to see kids outdoors in the sunshine and enjoying themselves in the pool. My preference has always been to hire a villa with private pool which you can hire for not much more money compared to property at El Sultan, but that said I would stay at Casa Donn and El Sultan again. A very relaxing holiday.
We are a family of 6 and stayed in one of Barrys villas for 9 nights end of june into july. We had a great holiday. The villa had all the untensils you would need in the kitchen, plenty of cupboard space, big fridge. Barry also supplied towels for showers, you just need to bring your own for the pool/beach. Very spacious. Bathroom on both floors which was great as we have two teenage girls. We like to chill out before we go out in the evenings and there was plenty of space for all of us to have a bit of privacy. The villa is right beside the pool which was very handy. Pool never overcrowded. Lovely pub just down the road called Clarkies, with a pool table, lovely food. Lovely Belgian pub also and a lovely bakery all just on your doorstep. 20 minute walk to the main area with huge amounts of resaturants and a lovely harbour area. Barry brought us from and to the airport which was great because as he said, he knew exactly where he was going and we didnt need to try and give directions. He is also cheaper than a regular taxi I believe. It was 24 degrees w hile we were there with a breeze which was great. Im not wonderful with the heat. So the only think I really missed was air conditioning. Barry does have a fan in the kitchen area but I needed more than that. When I mentioned it he arrived almost immediately with three fans!. One for each room. It was a great help. Barry was a great host and was extremely helpful any time I needed assitance. We had a great time, thank you Barry
firstly I should refer to correspondence with the owner (Barry) which was second to none. The booking process was sewn up without any problems. Barry offered us the option of transfer from the airport which we didn't need but it was nice to have the option. He was at the complex to meet us on our arrival. The house itself, of which we got a detailed tour, was simply lovely. I don't think the pictures on the website do it justice to be honest. It was spotlessly clean, very recently decorated, and well kitted out. The beds were very comfortable, a lot more so than other places we have rented. The house is out of the main town but is only a 10 minute walk to the main street. We would have no problem staying here again, and, on our next visit, will be hoping to stay here.
Stayed here this week and found both the villa and complex to be fantastic. Casa Donn is a real home from home - well equipped with just about everything you can think of. Within walking distance of the town centre and supermarkets. Couldn’t have asked for better :-)
