The family-friendly smartline Playa Park is in the northeast of Fuerteventura, the second largest of Spain's Canary Islands. Fuerteventura sits in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, and is a popular destination due to its white sand beaches and typically warm weather. Set in the resort town of Corralejo, smartline Playa Park is within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants, and it's a short walk to the nearest beach. The hotel's modern buildings are Spanish in style, with terracotta roofs, whitewashed walls and arched windows. They sit in tree-lined gardens surrounding the pool area. The hotel underwent refurbishment in August 2018. There are two main outdoor pools at smartline Playa Park, one of which is heated and one rooftop pool for premium guests. There's also a shallower kids' pool with a water slide. You can relax on the sun terrace with a cold drink or a snack from the poolside bar. If you're keen to stay active on your holiday, you can work out at the hotel's gym or enjoy a game of table tennis. If you'd prefer to be pampered, there's a spa where you can relax with a treatment and a session in the sauna. You'll find Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. There are two beaches nearby that you might like to visit. One is the sandy Las Dunas, which has shallow water, making it a popular choice for families with young children. You'll also find a beach at the sand dunes of Corralejo, part of the Corralejo Natural Park, which has a distinctive landscape of rolling sand dunes.

We stayed here from August 17th for 11 nights. We travelled as a family, 2 adults and 2 children aged 9 and 14. First impressions of this hotel were good, check in took around 30 minutes, we arrived early but our room was ready which was great. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are decorated to a high standard and the beds are super comfy. Me and my children enjoyed the food however my partner was not too keen on the evening meal, this was no reflection on the hotels food, he is just super fussy. Gino from the animation team is an absolute star, he works so hard, and is extremely funny. The hotel is in a great location. All in all an excellent hotel. Would definitely recommend and will hopefully visit again next year.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed for 7 nights premium all-inclusive from Saturday 20th July, booking through Thomas Cook. Although it was the first week of the English school holidays, the hotel seemed hugely under capacity – but this did not affect our stay or positive rating at all. Our overall feeling was one of delight, the hotel offered a luxury stay and top class facilities, premium features and friendly staff. We travelled with a two year old toddler who was never bored after the hundredth time down the white slide and the pick of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We requested a cot on booking, which wasn’t fulfilled on arrival but quickly rectified. The site was well set up for travelling with young children, they can access the pools and slides, with parental support, and there is a play park on site too. The room was clean, modern and spacious, and included a walk in shower and comfy beds. The smartly presented premium rooms are located in the new ‘Zensation’ block. We’d requested and received a terrace level room which enabled us to enjoy a drink on the terrace on an evening without disturbing the little one. We stayed in room 3006 which was ideally placed next to the main pools. One of the main reasons for booking premium was the air conditioning in the room – so our son could sleep in peace with the coolness of air con. The guests at the hotel were predominantly British. There were a couple of noisy, chavvy family groups who were certainly making good use of the all-inclusive alcoholic drinks, but on a whole there was a real mix of families and couples. I popped my head into the evening entertainment a couple of times, but it looked quite low key mainly because of how little guests were there to enjoy it. Nonetheless, the main entertainment guy, Gino, was really great, as was the guy who seemed to be running the activities for smaller children. We only managed to catch the mini disco twice, as it started after 8pm and our little boy was asking to go to bed(!) after busy days in the sun – he did enjoy taking part on both occasions though. There was never a point where we struggled to get a poolside sunbed. Around the main pools I’d say the busiest it got was around a quarter of beds taken – but even with the availability some guests did still put out their towels in the early hours! The amazing rooftop pool, and the pool hidden on floor one at the back of the premium block, was always empty. Great for a relax and use of the premium drinks up there, only one of our three visits there we were joined by other hotel guests! Probably the only downside was how cold the pools were! Especially in the morning. On the hottest days the pools did warm up - but still on the chilly side to really enjoy a prolonged dip. The buffet food was good and there was plenty of choice for non-picky diners, with different themes each night – my favourites being oriental and Mexican. On an evening premium guests can also access the a la carte restaurant, however with a hungry toddler in tow the 7pm or 8pm seating times were no good for us – although the menus did look great; there was a screen near reception where you could check out the weeks’ menus. At a lunchtime there is also ‘snack’ food, including hot dogs, burgers and chips available. Breakfast got a bit ‘samey’ a few days in. You can help yourself to soft drinks, water, San Miguel, wine and hot drinks on tap, or ask at the bar for cocktails or premium drinks. I’d highly recommend the Zensation spa area. We took it in turns between childcare duties to have half an hour using the facilities, which included a warm hydro pool, steam room, sauna and plunge pool. Again, this facility was hugely underused so we were the only ones using it. Despite this, the spa staff were quite particular about booking a timeslot – on the first occasion I hadn’t and they made a small fuss about having to turn on all of the equipment, and another time my wife turned up for a booked spa access but nobody was at reception for the twenty minutes she waited. My wife enjoyed a half hour massage on our last day at a discounted 25 euros. The premium services at the hotel included: - Premium drinks at the bars – including Smirnoff vodka, Gordon’s gin, Jim Bean whisky, etc, as well as ‘upgraded’ red, rose and white wine. Although make sure the server is aware you’re on premium as sometimes they go straight for the standard spirits. - A minibar stocked on arrival – ours was stocked with two bottles of San Miguel, two bottles of water, a can of Pepsi and a can of Schweppes Orange. Note that it isn’t refilled during your stay. - Unlimited bookings of the la carte restaurant. - Unlimited bookings into the spa and gym facilities. - Use of the rooftop pool and accompanying bar area, that only served the premium drink offerings. - Free pool towels, after submitting a £10 refundable deposit for each towel. You can change dirty towels with the lifeguard by the pool. - Rooms cleaned daily. - Free use of a safe. However, the premium options were only described in bullet points on a handout on arrival. It might have been good to have an explanation about how you access certain facilities, how to book services and what premium drinks are available. The local area in Corralejo was nice – although probably akin to other Spanish resorts at the moment with a mix of brand new luxury shops and apartments on the main strip alongside abandoned construction sites. Adjacent to the hotel is a small shopping centre which has an array of shops, holds a market a couple of days a week, and also houses a Hiperdino supermarket. We visited two local beaches: Grandes Playas de Corralejo (which was a 5 euro taxi journey away) and Playa de Goleta (which was a pleasant walk through the main town away). Both had golden sand and rockpool areas which our toddler loved exploring. Included in our booking with Thomas Cook was unlimited visits to the nearby Acua Waterpark, about 15 minutes’ walk away. We went a couple of times, and although it wasn’t most appropriate for a toddler, he did thoroughly enjoy the lazy river! Top tip: take your passports, or a photo of, on your first visit with the booking voucher, it will save you a trip back to the hotel to collect these! You get a wristband that covers your re-entry – if you have a white premium hotel wristband, make sure your water park band doesn’t cover your hotel one and confuse the bar staff! In terms of the weather, we knew it would be constantly blustery from our previous trip to the Canaries, however when they say it is windy… it is, all of the time. This helps make it seem cooler than it is. During our stay in late July the daily temperatures were always around 22 to 27 degrees. Overall, we had a really enjoyable, mostly quiet, stay and would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly. As mentioned, the hotel did seem under-capacity, which worked well for us travelling with a young child as it was potentially quieter than it could be. We generally like to travel and experience different hotels – but this is one we’d definitely keep an eye on returning to if the price was right.

Just returned home from a great week staying there we had room 3110 in the premium block worth upgrading great room cleaned spotlessly every day. Free safe and aircon lovely area to rear of room with sunbeds and a small pool.this was our 3rd visit to playa park made some great changes the hotel . The a le carte restaurant is great but the food in buffet restaurant is first class spolit for choice really. A new area for entertainment at night is great or just chill at the other bar.plenty of sunbeds yes you do get people saving them . We used the roof top pool quite a bit shame it doesn't open longer .Also the spa was great worth a visit . Hotel is spotless very clean All staff work hard very friendly Cant wait to go back.

Absolutely brilliant stay, I cannot believe there are so many negative comments, but I put that down to people just have nothing better to do than find every little fault possible. Food was plentiful and lovely, room was immaculate, entertainment was great, Gino is amazing and I would purely book again at this hotel because of him. Very relaxed holiday and well worth another visit. Pool was slightly on the cool side, but hey your on holiday, suntan then cool off with a nice swim. If I was being hyper critical then perhaps air con in the rooms, but the room fan was adequate. All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Having previously experienced a Thomas Cook Smartline hotel in Menorca i was hoping that this one was just as good and so it proved. The hotel is situated in a relatively quiet area approximately 10-15 minutes walk from the main Corralejo strip or beach. There is a Commercial center about 5 minutes away with shops, bars restaurants etc.with a nice market within on a Sunday selling more upmarket "craft" offerings rather than the usual tourist "tat." The hotel is basically split into 4 blocks surrounding pools and other areas. The front of the hotel, block B!, split over 3 levels, has some rooms overlooking the pool whilst others overlook the side road and skate park opposite. The lower level houses the restaurants and bar area. The sides of the hotel, blocks B2/B4 are one bedroom apartments over 2 levels overlooking the pools/central area, with those on the lower level having a terrace and self catering facilities. The Premium rooms block B3 or "Zensation" overlook the pool. We traveled as a three generational family having a variety of room style and as the hotel has undergone an extensive refurbishment were all of a high standard.The only negative was none of our rooms was air conditioned, just a ceiling fan at each end of the apartment. So if air conditioning is a "must" you will need to book a premium room. Foodwise excellent, wide variety to suit all, with no complaints from anyone else i spoke to. Staff very efficient with empty plates cleared away quickly. Drinks both alcoholic and soft were self serve. One point to note is the a la carte restaurant is for the Premium guests but you can dine in there for an additional payment of 10 euros per person per evening meal, our 7 year old went for 5 euros, whilst the 3 year old went free. We dined having steaks on the last night of our holiday. Entertainment by day was with "Gino" an excellent one man team, whilst evening entertainment was held in the modern air conditioned Theatre housed in the premium block. External acts of varying standard alternate nights Poolwise, big pool mainly used by adults with two childrens pools, one with a slide, also a jacuzzi. The premium block also have an infinity pool as well as a pool bar. Overall the whole hotel was always clean and well presented with friendly, efficient staff. To conclude this was a friendly family hotel which offered good value for money..
