We're still on a mission to find that perfect blend of fab hotel and interesting location for our annual sun holiday. The Barcelo here comes very close to perfection.
We booked AI with Thomas Cook. Our flights were with Monarch which was annoying as we couldn't prebook our seats or do online check in. This was the worst bit of the holiday as we weren't seated together and we were at the back by the toilets. Not a good start to the holiday! On the way back we asked for seats together and by a window which was sorted no problem. Guess we should have asked first time!
40 mins transfer to hotel, quick check in, friendly helpful reception staff. Room was a bit disappointing at first as it was one of the older style ones, not the nice rooms they show you on their webpage! If we hadn't had that expectation then it would have been fine. Spotlessly clean, comfy bed and UK channels on TV if you're missing Jeremy Kyle. Bathroom was fine, nice big shower over the bath. Our room overlooked the Adama Bar and we could hear the music in our room - we were on the third floor. Could be annoying if you prefer early nights.
Really pleased we went AI. Most named brands are included. Cocktails lovely. I'm veggie and I usually live off salad and chips abroad as there isn't much else for me. The breakfasts here were great with lots for me to eat. Evening meals weren't so good - it would help if food could be labelled as veggie. Spanish cheese isn't veggie which doesn't help. The pool bar was better for actual meals, it's only open in the daytime though.
The spa is fab. We went to book a couple of days using the water circuit and got an offer of both of us for two days at 42 euros. We didn't see it advertised and I think they could promote things like this more. The entertainment wasn't very well advertised until they got the electronic board working outside the Tindaya Restaurant later in the week. They do an exercise session (aqua fit, pilates, stretching etc) each day for free. Otherwise you can pay 20euros for unlimited access to all the classes they do. There were also free scuba lessons one day and they do other things as well. Evening entertainment was generally ok. There was a fantastic pop-rock band, another night there was an unintentionally hilarious singing duo.
We took a tip from a previous reviewer and booked in the spa for our last day as check out is 12. Our pick up not til 5:20. Worked well as they have lockers to use and the showers are great. We left our luggage in a secure room.
Corralejo has a lovely beach, loads of shops and restaurants. Plenty do do - we would love to come back again!
