The ClubHotel Riu Oliva Beach Resort sits on an absolutely stunning stretch of Fuerteventura's coastline just south of Corralejo. This popular resort in the Canary Islands is a favourite of Brits and with top holiday brands, with its self contained facilities, four pools, multiple restaurants and easy access to the beach, plus no noisy traffic or streets. You definitely won't need to venture out as it's the ideal cheap beach hotel at a truly "fly and flop" destination.
As you'll see from the photos, the beach here is simply incredible with turquoise blue water, the stuff your Instagram dreams are made of, and means you've got the choice of spending your day by one of four pools or taking a few steps and heading to the beach. The entertainment team put on a great show, from daytime activities by the pool and kids' clubs to evening entertainment and live shows. There's an on-site disco staying open until 2am six nights a week but if you want those really late club nights, you might be better suited to somewhere closer to Corralejo.

One of the biggest draws of the hotel Riu Oliva Beach is the beach itself. The Grandes Playas Corralejo, is an enormous stretch of sand along the east coast, so big that even in summer, you'll have plenty of space to enjoy, and the water here is that idyllic turquoise blue you always see in pictures. If you're hiring a car, there are also some stunning beaches dotted around the island. From cute little coves to the expansive beaches in and around Jandia and Morro Jable.
If you like to explore a destination, prebook an organised excursions, from visiting the sand dunes of the Parque Natural de Corralejo, to a day trip into Corralejo town itself. Or why not head out on a boat trip to discover nearby Los Lobos Island or go dolphin spotting.
