Admirably located in the heart of the fantastic landscape of the national park of Corralejo dunes, the Riu Oliva Beach offers all the activities and leisures of a quality club in an "all inclusive" formula. As in all the Riu hotels, you are assured that you will eat very well, and it will be difficult for you thereafter to find a better beach than the one of Corralejo dunes, where fine sand stretches as far as the eye can see, bordered by crystalline water. A definite value.
In the north-east of Fuerteventura, 3 miles south from downtown Corralejo, exactly on the beautiful beach of Corralejo. For transfers from the airport, located 22 miles south, count 30 minutes.
Member of the Riu Spanish chain, the Paladien Riu Oliva Beach Resort was renovated completely during summer in 2004. A promenade accross the park of the Corralejo dunes is held every Wednesday from 10:15 AM. Do you suffer from back pain? Don't panic! An osteopath will take care of you! The mini market is well practical so that you don't have to go into the city! The Riu Oliva Beach Resort is open all year round like the majority of the hotels in Fuerteventura that enjoy a favoured eternal spring climate.
All the rooms located in the main building offer a gorgeous view of the ocean and the Corralejo dunes. The bungalows overlook the pool, and sometimes the ride is too long to go to the restaurants and to the beach, but the luxuriant ambience is very nice. You are free to choose! Three rooms are fitted out for people with disabilities.
You can get a far-off glimpse of the silhouette of the Paladien Riu Oliva Beach, made of a large and high unattractive building, planted in the middle of a desert of dunes bordering the blue turquoise ocean. The 814 rooms of the hotel are divided between the clear sandy colour 7 floor complex, built in 1977, and bungalows of one or two storeys spread out in a large 376,600 feet² tropical garden. Between two heavenly baths in the beach of Corralejo dunes, you can have a quick bath in one of the two soft water pools of 3,228 feet² and 3,766 feet², heated in winter, open from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM, each one offering a snack bar. One is rectangular, 5 feet in depth, with ramp access for disabled people. The second, a little more animated, with a round shape and 5.57 feet in depth, with slight slope access like on the beach, houses an island and its palm tree. It is part of a very pleasant solarium space equipped with everything, with showers, changing rooms, sunshades, beach chairs, matresses and towels. Children are also offered 2 pools heated in winter with 19.5 inches depth.
The rooms of the Paladien Riu Oliva Beach Resort are shared out in 401 standard rooms located in the main 7 floor building and 413 bungalows connected with the large tropical garden which lays on a surface of 376,600 feet².
