We stayed for a week in January, when we arrived we text to advise of our arrival and were given a code for the lockbox to access the property keys. On arrival we were disappointed as there was a smell of damp and the floors were not very clean. Also the outside areas had obviously not been cleaned for weeks. The patio area and pool were very dirty with leaves everywhere and debris in the pool also the sun loungers and patio furniture were dirty. We decided to clean the outside area ourselves which is not ideal when on holiday, we scrubbed and washed everything down and removed a refuse bag full of leaves. Afterwards it all looked much better. We mopped right through and bleached the sink and toilets inside which is were the smell was coming from, again I think this was because the property had perhaps not been occupied for a few weeks. The lady from the management company 'Multiservicios Lagun' called the next morning to take our security deposit. I asked about the pool being cleaned and was told this would be done tomorrow, this was not ideal as we could not use the pool the first two nights and had paid the additional cost to have it heated during our stay. Once the pool was cleaned glad to say we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend the heating.
Apart from the problems mentioned above this apartment is great, it's spacious with comfortable beds a lovely garden which is very private and a nice pool. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking your own meals and the appliances are excellent with a large fridge freezer, cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment is located in a nice residential development. It's a 10 minute walk to the nearest Hiperdino supermarket which we found excellent and very well priced. There are also a few nice cafes and bars near the supermarket in the Al Campanario shopping centre. It's a further 5-10 minute walk into Corralejo town. The other direction from the apartment it's a 10 minute walk to the beach and Corralejo Dunes which are beautiful.
We really enjoyed our stay in Corralejo its a beautiful place which is relaxing with a nice town centre, restaurants, bars and beautiful beaches.
I would also recommend this accommodation but please make sure the property has been checked and cleaned well including the pool before your arrival unless you want to spend a few hours cleaning it yourself.
Property is spacious and has all you need to self cater and live comfortably while away it is with walking distance to shops and beaches between 10-30mins depending where you want to go im sorry to say thats where the plus side to this property ends. Property is similar but not the same as the pictures show while amenities are the same some furniture etc is different. Lighting is very poor in two of the bedrooms and outside could do with some more lighting at night . Outside area around pool could do with a revamp including new patio furniture. Pool needs to be cleaned more as leaves and dirt constantly in pool (pool net provided but when your doing it 3 times a day its a bit much). Pool is clean twice a week when you ask and if you keep asking the might put clorine in it .Wifi didnt work for 3 days and when it was fixed didnt work properly kept switching on and off . Found stuff broken in the property upon arrival and took a accidental breakage (not caused by us) for maintanance to reply/turn up to property these breakages include a broken cooker flooding shower broken mirror to say but the least we were then billed for these breakages/faults were refunded for some but not for others. Very hard to get in contact with somebody who speaks english as staff who come to property only speak spainish.
I wouldnt recommend this property to people with children as alot of stufff there is breakable and made of glass any questions please feel free to ask and i do have picture hope this is helpfull to others because if I had of known this i wouldnt have stayed there
Spacious clean great pool
Not any good unless you are fit to walk 20-25 mins from town or have a car
We found the apartment to be clean and tidy and bright with good decoration and clean towels upon arrival. The pool was fantastic,(we paid extra for it to be heated, which was worth the extra) and the outside seating area was very good with a pretty good barbecue although the Fuerteventura winds made it a bit of a challenge to use.
some maintenance is needed in areas, such as shower enclosure didn't seal properly which made a slippery tiled floor when wet, the sun loungers had an issue with the support bolts falling out and the kettle lid wouldn't close but they aren't huge issues and shouldn't put you off. Any way i reported them to the agents (who are excellent) and assured me they would take care of the faults. so hopefully they'll be fixed by the time you take your holiday there ;)
The location of the apartment is pretty good but its probably ideal to hire a car as its a fair distance to the main center of Corralejo but there is a very nice little shopping area a short distance up the road with some good bars and restaurants and a good supermarket. To the right we are on the edge of the national park and a short drive to the best beaches with huge expanses of sand dunes
If you like great views from your apartment and its important to you, you might want to overlook this one as there is a half built hotel across the main road which isn't pretty at all, and the road can be a little intrusive if you aren't used to road traffic noise. We live on a main road so it didn't bother us at all and after the initial first glance of the half built hotel we paid no more attention to it. in fact it became quite useful as a land mark to get our bearings when walking back from a taverna of an evening!
Overall I'd recommend this apartment, there were 6 of us staying (4 adults 2 kids) we didn't feel over crowded the beds are extremely comfortable its bright, comfortable and the location was good. And we all had a great holiday!
Hope this review helps.
1. Building work next door woke us abruptly @8am every morning, should have been notified of this prior to arrival as the work had obviously been going on for a while.
2. Tried our hardest not to let it spoil our break but the road noise was just as annoying at times and this is always goin to be there.
3. No Baths, 2 showers which were a joke, more often no water than able to shower, seemingly a common problem in the area a pump required to maintain pressure.
4. No ceiling fans and the road noise made it impossible to leave the windows open as the traffic noise goes right through the night. Double bedroom was especially oven like.
5. Not even as much as a bottle of water in the apartment, not the standard we are used to when renting. (Last year had everything we would need for the first day including beach towels).
Pros - Nice modern apt, nice pool area (to look at).

The villa is amazing, we enjoyed as a children. Fuerteventura always is a good idea. Badel was very clean and the vacanzy collection team was very attentive with us. Thanks you
