“Good Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed April 8, 2009

For the past couple of years I have checked out Trip Advisor before booking any accommodation from a one night stay in the UK to a long weekend in Barcelona to a fortnight in Crete . So, if you have written a review, a huge thank you – our holidays have held fewer unpleasant surprises.
For my husband and I, holidays aren’t just about whether a hotel has 1 or 4 stars, it’s about the helpful, welcoming staff, cleanliness, good food and an overall relaxing experience. In March 2008 we stayed at the H10 Playa Meloneras Palace in Gran Canaria (see separate review), a holiday that my 53 year old husband rates as a 9 out of 10, so a difficult one to beat. While the Blue Bay Palace didn’t quite reach these lofty heights, they certainly tried and came close.
We arrived tired and hungry just after 9.30pm having spent 45 minutes driving around Corralejo stopping at other accommodation (why do we always seem to be last to be dropped off?). However, just as we got off the bus, one of the reception staff came out to welcome us and take our cases into the reception. We were greeted by a smiling receptionist who said that as the restaurant was just closing perhaps we would like to make our way down to the restaurant straight away and check in later. Once we had dined and checked in, we arrived at our room to be greeted not only with a welcome bottle of wine but a tray of cold meat and fruits which had been left for us in case we hadn’t arrived before the restaurant closed. What a welcome and what a great start to the holiday!
I don’t have much more to add to the other great reviews already written. The hotel is now 9 years old and became part of the Blue Bay Group 18 months ago however most of the staff are still there from when it opened. If you get chance to go on the hotel tour conducted by the Manager, then I strongly recommend it. We were particularly impressed by the kitchens.
The food was good although I don’t understand why veal was on the menu most nights, particularly when it wasn’t being eaten (50% of the guests are British).
In summary, it is a lovely, clean hotel with great staff and lots of facilities. Inflatables are banned (great if you don’t have kids) and the middle pool is heated so you can have a swim even in March. We used the steam room and jacuzzi but couldn’t have a massage together as there was only one masseuse. It’s in a great location, handy for the town and beach and we were fortunate to be there during Carnival week – a fabulous and unexpected bonus with free entertainment which I can recommend but wish that the tourist board would promote it.
Go to The Blue Bay Palace if you like a little class, peace and quiet but I can’t recommend it for children.

This is a lovely hotel in all respects except for the food - both in terms of quality which was probably only just 3 star - and the fact that it was invariably luke warm !!

We arrived Wed 25th Feb 2009 at about 1300 hrs, the reception staff were very efficient & our bags were in our room within 10 min of arrival,
The room was quite large with very nice bathroom, the sea view we ordered was a side view but still very nice, the room had twin beds as requested a mini bar & a free bottle of red wine, the towels were replaced every day & the room was cleaned to a high standard.
The general appearance of the hotel was very good, there was live entertainment every night but we went out every night for a drink to the local bars, the pool area was very nice with a selection of pools & spar treatments at a cost.
The location of the hotel is great, cross the road from the hotel then turn left to the beach less than 75yds, the beach has restaurants along the seafront as you walk into corralejo, the town has a very good selection of restaurants all at reasonable prices look out for COFRADIA DE PESCA DORES, Luis Espases is the front man for this restaurant & he is a smooth talker but the food is very good.

We had a fabulous holiday at Bluebay Palace. A warm welcome on arrival and the staff were friendly throughout the holiday. The hotel was very clean and maintained to a high standard. Food was excellent, kids really enjoyed the buffet , a good variety of food. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment and the kids disco went down a treat with the kids. We would definately return to this hotel.

We left snowy, freezing England on Saturday 7th Feb and arrived in warm Fuerteventura in the evening (I understand visitors from previous few weeks were not so lucky). It felt like heaven.

My review from our first visit described it as a little "tired", which on reflection of the context is unfair.

Since our first visit we have been back three subsequent times much to amusement of work colleagues) and each time have really enjoyed our stay in both the BlueBay and Corralejo. The slight criticisms levelled at it still exist, but on a value for money basis it surpasses any hotel I've stayed in. The staff are usually charming, friendly and efficient.

The food is fine, not haute cuisine, but for a buffet it is varied and mostly very good. As with all buffets though you would not want to go there each day of your holidays

The cleanliness and accomodation in the rooms is excellent (In room WiFi, UK TV other than SKY news and a DVD player would be welcomed though).

Only problem experienced were a couple of mosquitoes (we had never seen any on previous visits, but put this down to the unusually wet January Fuerte had experienced.)

Thoroughly recommended.
