This is our 6th year at Corralejo and we stay at different apartments every time, but we felt the Estrella was worth a mention.

The complex is run by british people who are very friendly but not in your face. Each bungalow is owned by different people and they just manage the site, we were told that every bungalow is differently furnished by its owners so we can only comment on the one we stayed in which was number 1, it was very clean and tidy, spacious, clean bathroom with lovely powerfull shower, bath a bit small but that didn't bother us, no bidet ! Kitchen was very well stocked with nice crockery including mugs not silly cups and saucers, full range of cooking pots, full size cooker, tupperware boxes to keep your food in so's not to attract the ants, clean and working fridge, microwave, nice glasses, bedroom had largish wardrobe, safe (advisable to pay for just for peace of mind), ceiling fan - nice :) patio had chairs, table parasol, sunbeds or you can use the ones round the pool.

The bungalow was cleaned several times in 10 days but you have to put your own rubbish out, makes sense when you think about it, sheets changed once. There is a resident cat called ";willie"; and he is domesticated not wild so quite friendly but if you don't like cats - like us - then he's fine and doesn't bother you unless he's encouraged.

I won't do the Corralejo bit as you will either love it or hate it ! We like it that's why we return year after year. We will certainly return to Estrella del Mar.

We travelled to Fuerteventura in Nov 2004 for a week at Estrella Del Mar bungalows in Corralejo. The transfer from the airport is quite a short journey once you actually get going. We had to wait for nearly an hour for stragglers to come out of the airport!
The apartments / bungalows are of average quality. They are quite well furnished but the sofa bed and the twin beds were very hard and lumpy and not at all comfortable. The bunglaows are very clean though and the staff / owners are very friendly and helpful.

A short walk of about 15 minutes takes you to the harbour area. A good selection of bars, restaurants awaits you but the whole town seems to be run by English people. It was hard to detect a Spanish accent at all!

I would describe Corralejo as Newquay in the sun but not as big or exciting and that says something.
It was very quiet when we visited and a week was more than enough to sample everything that was on offer. We also hired a jeep for two days to explore the island but to be honest what you see on the way from the airport is more or less what there is. The scenery doesnt change from either sand or dusty volcanic rocks.

Overall I would not return to Fuerteventura as we found it dull.

A very quiet, relaxing place to stay away from the main resort centre - but close enough to be able to walk to in about 15 mins. Beaches in the town centre get crowded and are a bit noisy, However venture 2 miles south of Corralejo and you enter beach heaven!!

Very basic in its equipment levels but if you want wanted 5* luxury you wouldn't be staying here.

Swimming pool on site is small but well maintained and was hardly ever used by other residents (water was a bit cool!)

Friendy complex cat called ";willie"; invites himself to dinner most nights!!

Reception staff very friendy and went out of their way to assist in every way they could.

Weather even at the start of Nov very pleasent temps in the high 20s during the day and not dropping below 22C at night.

A very relaxing week.

Really lovely complex, gorgeous apartments, apparently had best in complex (no.7), marred only by the appearance of ants! Good size rooms, good shower and kitchen full of useful and clean appliances. Very quiet considering it was school holidays, perfect for relaxing as pool never got too busy.

Resort nice, complex only a 15 minute walk to centre of town and dunes were a nice walk away as well but if you want to venture further than the naturist beach, we'd recommend a taxi!
Resaturants very good, nice variety and pubs too - the Wakiki bar was pricy but very good, live music always a bonus!

Would definitely go back and stay both in Corralejo and Estrella del Mar - Aug very hot as over 100 degrees but can imagine is nice all year round!

Estrella del Mar, about fifteen minutes walk from the centre of Corralejo was a complex of bungalows, very quiet, clean and well maintained. The one we had was one bedroom, with a sofa bed in the lounge. Everything provided for self catering needs including a kettle and toaster. The staff were very friendly and were English. The beach was only a few minutes walk away, and you could walk along this to town.

We often drank in Cooler's internet bar, staffed by Barry and Julie, who we found to be very friendly and helpful.
Food was very varied mostly pizzas/pasta.The food at Oscars was of a high standard and plentiful worth trying to find behind the music square.
