We loved the apartment, its spacious and opens onto a large sheltered terrace where we enjoyed breakfast in the sunshine, an uplifting way to start the day. Being south facing the terrace had sun all day, it also faces onto the communal pool area which was barely used in the period of our stay.
The beaches were about 20minutes walk and having reached the coast you could walk either direction, north taking you around to the marina, whilst south takes you to the famous dunes.
The apartment is located within a secure complex and its location worked perfectly for us. There are a range of eateries and small stores about 3 minutes walk, a much bigger selection of shops and restaurants are about 10minutes walk, the main shopping and restaurant area of Corralejo starts about 10minutes away and goes on for a couple of miles.
The apartment was presented to a very good standard in terms of cleanliness, supply of towels and soaps. It is well equipped for self catering. Marisa met us when we arrived and showed us around, she also provided information on things to do. Enrico, the owner, came to clean the apartment and change the bed linen / provide fresh supply of towels at the end of our 1st week, a nice touch.
Corralejo is excellent for water sports particularly wind surfing / kite surfing. My own interest is in cycling, I did both road and mtb during our 2 week stay. There are a good range of cycle hire shops to suit all levels. Roads are generally well surfaced and car drivers were very considerate of cyclists. I'd expected to do more road cycling than I did but was put off by the strength of the winds and would recommend mtb as the wind matters less and it is well catered for with trails around the coast line on dirt roads and through the volcano's. Around the town itself cycling is popular as it is virtually pan flat and cycle lanes are prolific.
Cosy apartment with fantastic sun terrace. Good location (about 20 minute walk to centre of town and 5 minute walk to shopping centre). Marisa was very good communicator, and even found a bar we could do some salsa at. Overall the apartment complex was quiet, but there were 2 nights when some guests were rowdy past midnight. Pool was great-maybe too cold for people who aren't used to swimming in non heated pools, but we warmed up after half a lap and really enjoyed being able to take a dip when we liked.
Apartment was perfect, neighborhood was perfect, view from apartment was perfect, swimming pool was perfect, communication was perfect, help given to us by Marisa was perfect, Corralejo was really perfect place for Holiday. We are very grateful for hospitality, new friendships and beautiful holiday that we spend in this place, recommended for everyone.
