My husband and I spent a week at the Barcelo Corralejo Bay for our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it.
After a very busy year with backpacking in SE Asia, wedding planning and buying a house, our requirements for the honeymoon were these:
This hotel ticked all the boxes (Not that it could control the weather of course!)
We chose the Barcelo firstly based on it being an adults only hotel, then based on reviews on trip advisor from other honeymooners.
The staff were occasionally a little abrupt, but perfectly helpful and the domestic staff were simply lovely! We were greeted in our room to a bottle of bubbly and chocolate dipped strawberries alongside a note wishing us a happy marriage - great touch!
The room was great, bright and airy, plenty of space and such an oh so comfortable bed! Fantastic shower and lovely, deep bath for relaxing in. I'm glad we went for the basic double room because the quality of the other facilities meant we didn't need anything fancier. Tea and coffee was provided, as well as the usual toiletries which were of a good quality.
The food was a large buffet for breakfast and tea - serving a decent variety of nice food at all times. I think we may have become bored of the evening food if staying longer than a week, but for an all inclusive buffet it was better than I had maybe expected.
Lunch was freshly cooked to order in the pool bar and was delicious - You must try the DIY pizzas as they were some of the best pizzas we'd ever come across!
The swimming pools were nice and we didn't have too much trouble finding loungers, although people were queuing at silly o'clock in the mornings to 'save' loungers before breakfast, which I think staff should clamp down on.
The spa was wonderful. It looks quite small, but actually has everything you need for a day of total relaxation and all for 15 euros each. We loved it so much we had 2 spa days, although we didn't have any treatments. There was a large jacuzzi, a pool that went in and outside, a really fun shower maze, a steam room, sauna and my favourite part - a heated relaxation pool which was almost pitch black and had soothing music playing. Very nice!
The entertainment wasn't really our thing, except for the African acrobats, who were brilliant! The hotel did host some kind of club night, which was exceptionally noisy until about 2am and did keep us and many other guests up. I'm not sure if that's a regular event but in our opinion it really isn't suitable for a hotel which is predominantly booked by people wanting a quiet holiday.
The free shuttle to Oliva Beach and the sand dunes was a fantastic bonus and the hotel was within easy walking distance to all the main facilities that Corralejo has to offer.
Thank you to the Barcelo Corralejo Bay for a wonderful honeymoon.
