Just returned from a week at Atlantis. We travelled as a family ( 2 adults 2 teenagers), definitely worth booking a 2 bedroom suite. Can't find fault with the hotel at all, this is a perfect location for lounging around the pool and enjoying the activities if you prefer. Food, staff, cleanliness all excellent. The only let down is there is little to do in the surrounding area. Corralejo is a smallish town, about 20 mins walk or 3 euros in taxi, and you can see all of it in less than a day. Mainly full of the usual tourist tat but further up 'the strip' is quite a nice shopping centre which is a bit more pleasant. Nearer the beach are some lovely bars and restaurants with live music outside.

Animation team were excellent, they worked hard all day and then put on a quality show in the evening. I agree with a previous poster that the show area needs a facelift, chairs and table would be better than the theatre style seats.

Overall, we would not go back due to lack of choice/things to do in the surrounding area but if you enjoy spending a week around the pool, you would find it difficult to find somewhere better.

Room Tip: Get a 2 bed suite, worth the little extra.

We stayed as a couple during the first week of the Easter School Holidays. We had paid extra in advance to stay in a Premium suite. Therefore, this review is based on the hotel being particularly busy, but also with us having stayed in a Premium room.

Arrival – We had an early outbound flight and arrived at the hotel at around 12.30pm. We were greeted by a welcome Cava and received an efficient check-in, although were then told that our room wasn’t yet ready (many other arrivals were told the same). This was a little frustrating, but check-out time is midday, so we could understand that our prompt arrival might mean a slight wait. We were directed to have some lunch (and of course a drink or two!) and then returned to reception mid-afternoon, where our room was now ready and we were given the key (lots of non Premium guests were still waiting for their rooms several hours after arrival). The only downside of our check in was there was no where secure to leave our cases and so we were advised to just leave them in reception, amongst numerous other ‘abandoned’ cases, which we didn’t feel particularly comfortable doing.

Room – Guests who stay in the Premium Suites need to use their keycard to access the Premium area gate (Adults only). The Premium area is in a quiet part of the hotel, away from the main amenities of the complex, there is a pool exclusively for Premium guests, a lounge, and a bar also. Although there is no restaurant here, on a few days a chef with portable grill would appear at lunch, allowing guests to stroll up when hungry. The bar staff would also bring a fresh fruit cocktail to your sunbed each morning, which was a really nice touch. Our room itself was great – large kingsize bed (one single mattress, not two pushed together, which was pleasing), living room area, kitchenette, walk-in wardrobe, and sleek bathroom. Premium guests also get their fridge pre-stocked with complimentary beer, soft drinks and water on arrival, as well as beach towels and tea/coffee making facilities supplied (which are charged additionally in the rest of the hotel, so if you are planning on hiring these anyway and have no children, it would make sense to pre-book Premium). We used the Premium pool on a few days, and the main activity pool on other days (will get to that later on). The room was kept spotlessly clean. We never saw a cockroach (we were on a first floor room, which we had requested in advance).

Safe – There is a safe in the room that needs to be hired. It costs E2.50 a day, and no deposit was required (although seemingly it was if you were not staying in Premium).

Hotel Complex – The hotel is large and sprawling. In total, there are five pools and an additional two children’s pools. There are three restaurants and five bars (open at different times, but always at least 2 bars open during all inclusive hours). There is a spa and gym (we never used these so cannot comment). By the main activities pool, there is the activities area, with sand volleyball court, French bowls pits, table tennis tables, and basketball hoops. Despite being a large complex, the grounds are kept impeccably and it was very pleasant to stroll from one area to another.

Food – You cannot please all of the people all of the time (clearly, based on other recent reviews). We found the food to be more than acceptable (and have stayed all inclusive in several other countries and hotels). There are three restaurants – the Gaudi (the main restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner), and the two theme restaurants (El Molino, which is Spanish-themed, and Rambutan, which is Asian-themed). Both require a reservation, which you can make once for each restaurant in advance, but can also be visited again but only if you reserve on the same day and there is space. We ate at El Molino once – great if you like meat or fish, but there were no vegetarian options on the menu. We visited Rambutan twice, which was more to our liking, with fresh sushi, live wok cooking, as well as authentic Asian dishes on the buffet. For lunch, the Rambutan doubles up as the pool snack-bar, with burgers and hot dogs, Paella, as well as a full buffet. The main restaurant had a clear children’s buffet, with chicken nuggets, sausages, etc. It is true that the main restaurant is a little chaotic, and more a place for eating than it is to really savour a meal and the occasion. In all cases, the food was plentiful, we never found anything to be poorly cooked, and feel nothing but sorrow for those people who have reviewed to the contrary, as perhaps they would have been better off staying in England with their home comforts.

Drink – All restaurants have beer, wine (Red, White, Rose) and Sangria on tap, as well as soft drinks, juices, hot drinks. The bars all have the same copy of the drinks menu – some drinks are free on all-inclusive, while others carry an additional charge. As part of the all inclusive, you can rest assured there is beer, cocktails (at least 7 or 8), every spirit you can imagine (of which some are branded), as well as all mixers. Basically, if you enjoy a drink, you need not to worry. All inclusive ends at 11pm, when drinks become chargeable, but since this is a family hotel, most people have returned to their rooms by this time. If you wanted to continue drinking after this time we were advised there bars and clubs in Coralejo which was only a short walk away, although we did not explore any of these.

Location – The hotel is situated at the southern end of Corralejo, in a quiet area of the resort (although the resort itself is quiet). It is a pleasant 15 minute stroll along the beach to the resort centre, and also a 20 minute or so walk in the other direction to the dunes. We walked to both with no problems. Corralejo has the usual bars and restaurants, a few centro commercials (shopping centres) and several separate beaches (volcanic rock with some areas of soft white sand). There is a supermarket just outside of the hotel which was well-stocked.

Star rating – This hotel is rated as 4 star. Several recent reviews have questioned this. Now, these reviewers may well be experienced hotel inspectors (forgive me if this is the case), but even then, they should know that for a hotel to be rated as 4 star, it has simply has had to tick the sufficient boxes on the ratings scale (namely, a front desk and bellhop service, high level of staff service, rooms that are well equipped and furnished, a good choice of dining options, concierge service, fitness centre, and pool facilities). The hotel offers all of these. A 4 star hotel does NOT imply an air of luxury, and you shouldn’t expect one here. It is not a modern, sleek, designer hotel. You would not choose to honeymoon here.

Entertainment – the hotel has a very, very hard-working animation team. My wife and I usually shun the activities at these types of hotels, but there was something about the animation team here that made us want to take part. Each day we enjoyed the French Bowls tournament (the banter makes it sooo much more fun than it sounds), as well as the twice daily Volleyball tournament and the Water Polo. There were other varied activities too. There is a separate activity programme for children, with toned-down versions of the adult activities, and some others. A big thank you to the animation team (in particular Buzza, Mia and Marcin) for making our days around the activity pool so much fun. The same animation team put on the evening shows in the theatre, starting with the children’s disco, before the main entertainment (this was different each day, but included a parrot show, Flamenco dancers, Grease, etc).

Staff – It must be said that the staff make this hotel what it is. All the staff we met (receptionists, bar staff, housekeepers, restaurant staff, animation team) work very hard and with a smile on their faces. They are an absolute credit to the hotel.

Other guests – this was certainly the most ‘English’ hotel we’ve stayed in. There were a few French guests, and a handful of Germans, but the vast majority of guests were English families. All seemed to be having a good time – we never overheard any complaints.

Check-out – We had an early pick-up from the hotel so did not suffer from the ‘high noon’ all inclusive deadline that other reviews allude to. However, one would presume that those guests who have a late pick-up time on their departure day would have arrived later on their first day, so this policy seems unfair. Perhaps the hotel could introduce a time stamp on the wristbands to rectify this? It didn’t affect our holiday, but had it done so it would certainly have put a dampener on its conclusion.

So, should you book to stay here?

Yes – if you don’t mind children, you like to get involved with activities, you are open-minded with food, you enjoy a good drink, and you don’t mind a short stroll to get to the resort centres.

No – if you dislike being around children on holiday, you prefer a peaceful hotel all round, you dislike buffet food, and you are expecting 4 star luxury.

I will finish by saying that as a rule of thumb, my wife and I never visit the same hotel or place twice (all part of a wider mission to see as much of the world as possible), but this hotel may just force us to reconsider that policy.

If you have any specific questions about this hotel, feel free to message.

First impressions of this hotel are very good, friendly, efficient reception staff, nice big room, pretty and well maintained gardens/communal areas. Rooms are nice, spacious, lots of English TV channels.

There are a lot of hidden extras, wifi, safe, bottles of water, snacks such as crisps and most ice creams, all have to be paid for. This is the lowest quality All Inclusive I have experienced. Bars closed down in some areas quite early which meant you had to walk the length of the complex to find somewhere to get a drink. Sun beds were reserved with towels at the crack of dawn and not used for hours on end so anyone who wanted to actually use one had to either wait for hours or move towels yourself which we had to do. The hotel has a ''strict'' policy against reserving sun beds ?? It seems some policies are followed and some aren't!

Staff very good, nice location, nice hotel but nothing that would make me want to go back. Would I recommend it, probably but you could do a lot better when spending this amount of money.

First of all the flight. We booked this holiday with disabled parents; including one 78 year old wheelchair user and one 84 year old with walking difficulties. We booked assistance at the airports for both. On arriving at the airport I advised the Thomas Cook rep of this fact and was told that I needed to walk along to the desk; no problem for me but a long way for someone with mobility problems. On arriving at the desk a surely male looked blankly at me and said well you can take one of those wheelchairs over there; when I asked where the assistance was his reply was; "can't you push the wheelchairs yourself? If you can't you will have to wait for someone". At that point a lady who was already booked to someone else approached me and said that she could show me the way.
On boarding the flight I found we were not seated at the front as had happened on a flight some years ago when we took my disabled mother on holiday; we were in rows 6 & 7. I asked the flight attendant why the two people with assistance booked we're not at the front; his reply was"those seats are book able"; which roughly translated means they can get extra money for them. He then advised me that both disabled persons would need to be in the window seats; there was minimal legroom on this plane and very narrow seats. When I challenged this and said that surely they would be better in the aisle seats as they were more easily accessible he replied; "if we had to evacuate the plane and they were to get into the gangway they would be considered an obstruction!" So it would seem that Thomas Cook have little consideration for the disabled!

The hotel. On arrival at the hotel we were given our room numbers and key cards and a staff member was called to assist with the luggage. He immediately entered into dialogue with the receptionist in Spanish. After some debate between them,in broken English he indicated that he would take me to see the rooms first as he had concerns about the distance for those with walking difficulties, and also pushing the wheelchair. He was right! The rooms were fabulous and next to each other but a long way from the amenities. Despite negotiations over two days they were unable to change our rooms.
The entertainment team were brilliant; working from 10.00 until 1 in the morning. Putting on really good shows at night. The theatre desperately needs updating. Seats are plastic in rows and are supposed to be screwed to the floor but most have come loose and when one person moves they rock precariously; it's probably only a matter of time before there is an accident.
The food was good with no initial complaints; that was until I caught a chef trying to pick up cooked chicken to put on my husbands plate which he had just that second used to load uncooked chicken on the the hot plate to cook! I informed the restaurant manager; this was two days before we returned home. At the airport whilst waiting for our return flight my father in law (wheelchair user) developed a sever stomach up set affecting his bowels; he was then sick on the plane: within 24hrs the whole family had gone down with this.
Hotel grounds were clean and we'll kept.
I was fooled by the photo which looked as though you simply walked through the pool area to the sandy beach. Nearest sandy beach is 15-20 minute walk. Ok for me, no good for the disabled.
Went on drag night outing. Really funny!
The only positive I have to say about Thomas Cook is the rep Ian. He did everything he could to assist. I have to say he is wasted on this company!

Room Tip: Make sure that if you require rooms to be close to facilities due to disability, that you don't...

We had a fortnight here in march. The complex was well laid out with at least five pools. We preferred two of the quieter pools as we are retired. The bigger pool has all the facilities and activities nearby. The water in the pools was freezing, and thus it was always quiet for my daily swim. The activities staff were very enthusiastic. The food was extremely good considering it was buffet style and we never had to queue up. We also enjoyed the Chinese restaurant. There were not a lot of fully indoor places to sit in the evening, and everyone was very cold at nights. The complex was a good twenty minute walk out of the town, but taxi s were cheap. We enjoyed this break very much.

Stayed here for a week at the end of march.The hotel is kept very clean, the rooms were cleaned everyday to a high standard. When we were there it was still a little chilly at night and main bar is outside with a large awning over it so it wasnt comfortable to sit for any length of time. Other than this area there was not anothe decent bar, the other bar was in the lobby their was no atmosphere in any area with decent music. The theatre was excellent and the animation team were fabulous a show everynight. I prefer to watch a show while im having a drink but you couldnt really do this as it was sat out as a theatre. It was always full with families very early so quite hard to get a seat. Now to the restaurants the buffet was quite good food but a lot of it was like warm and on more than one occasion i had to go back and get other food, i noticed eggs for breakfast were being cooked in advance and left on the back with no heating so when replenishing were already cold, so the tip is to get the straight from the griddle. The buffet restaurant was a bit chaotic people rushing in every direction. The asian restaurant was a bit dissapointing buffet aswell and some of the side dishes were cold in there too. I didnt think it was worth paying extra for the adult area as you could find a quiet pool in other areas of the complex and all the food areas were stationed in the family area. A tip for the owners get some snacks ie. sandwiches or baguettes to the adult pool, got fed up trekking through the hotel everyday. On a final note the staff were lovely, especially the bar staff in the lobby the drinks were very good. Final shout for Ian the Thomas Cook rep he was fab and knowledgeable.

Room Tip: Dont pay extra for adults area
